The Trump Russia “thing” was well-planned by Democrats. President Trump allegedly said to former FBI Director James Comey “we have this thing…” We can take that any way we want, but we know that the Obama administration started a full-on investigation of several Trump links to Russia.
This was framed as a counterintelligence operation, and thrown under an umbrella of Russian interference in our election. Yes, the Russians interfered with our election. Yes, they will continue to do so–Comey said as much under oath. No, the Russians didn’t throw the election to Trump. Hillary Clinton, Worst Candidate Ever (if there was such as thing as “WOAT” instead of “GOAT,” she’d be it), did that herself.
After all the noise and smoke, the FBI, and the combined assets of America’s vaunted intelligence community have found, exactly nothing. Nothing chargeable. No collusion. One leaker in Georgia with the most unfortunate name Reality Winner.
Now special counsel Robert Mueller will be looking into potential evidence that Trump obstructed justice…when there was no criminal investigation to obstruct. The whole Russia “cloud” thing was started, planned, and fully executed by Democrats. And now they’ve got nothing but tweets and moral outrage. But they’ve had that all along.
So they’ve got nothing, at the cost of their own legitimacy. And they’ve dragged the media along with them though this pile of manure.
The Republicans are in just as bad a fix. They’ve defended a lying, morally corrupt president and been made to look like fools repeatedly by him. They’ve thrown their lot in with a man who cares not a whit for anyone else’s election but his own. Now they’re facing trouble.
Georgia’s 6th congressional district should be a lock for any GOP candidate in this political season. But Karen Handel has more than a fight on her hands against a nobody, Jon Ossoff, who doesn’t live in the district, and has the resume of Barack Obama–without the Harvard law degree or the political experience or being an African-American. (What does that leave?)
Republicans have spent all their political capital, their reputation, and their now-wet powder on a man who shows all the gratitude of a dog that bites its owner after being fed.
Nobody wins here.
The best solution is to just get the Russia “thing” out of the way. May Mueller do this, quickly, efficiently, and truthfully. This could have been Trump’s strategy all along. In fact, I believe it is. Combat the Democrats by making the cloud big and dark, and then gone.
But he’s done it with such magnificent incompetence, it’s like watching the Three Stooges play football. It makes me just want to walk off the field. It makes everyone want to walk off the field.
