Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Given that we have yet to see Mueller's report but only Barr's "summary", and given that Barr is a fascist whore whose lips couldn't have truth pass them if a Fair Witness shoved his hand up Barr's bum and operated his mouth like a ventriloquist's dummy, I'm withholding judgment.  There is so much fudge in that summary that Barr could be the sole supplier for Keebler's cookies.

I promise you.

Mueller's NAKED, UNADULTERATED conclusion to investigation of "meddling and interference" by RUSSIAN agents colluding with Trump Campaign (LLC) to commit WHAT CRIME? would offer no reasonable explanation or evidence (material or circumstantial) to persons opposed to Trump's election to POTUS.

Such persons cannot even spell RICO.

Such persons are quite comfortable accepting conclusory statements as sufficient cause for action to remove, maim, and murder anyone who offends their personal ideers of justice in the USA. That's why the state of California admits the greatest number of death row prisoners on the planet.

fuck 'em.

The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.

I promise you.

Such persons are either unable or unwilling to read and analyze this material in order to to prepare an argument against Mueller's NAKED, UNADULTERATED conclusions.

Such persons are either unable or unwilling to RE-read the documentary "evidence" presented in Minority VIEWS and MEMOs. I read them. These are all circular references to US press reporting on claim asserted in the "dossier" provided by

Christofer Steele

paid for in part by

Fusion GPS

Remember that Feinstein released transcript of secrect senate hearing of testimony by Glenn Simpson et al.

I read that too. Over 250pp disclosing the industry that manufactures credentials of political enemies within the uniparty. Disgusting.

I'm absolutely in awe that anyone would expect the Republican perjury cop to save us from the orange menace.
My favorite part is still that the initial source of the Trump - Russia collusion was the LaRouche newsletter:
It's official: Russiagate is this generation's WMD
Only two facts in the piece could conceivably have been used to support the thesis: Trump met with a visiting Soviet official in 1986, and visited the Soviet Union in 1987. That's it. That's your cover story.

Worse, Chait's theory was first espoused in Lyndon Larouche's "Elephants and Donkeys" newsletter in 1987, under a headline, "Do Russians have a Trump card?" This is barrel-scraping writ large.

And anything less than proving Larouche right would be a massive disappointment. That Trump does nickel and dime corruption is as painfully obvious as could be. He also does the usual warcrimes. What more could you want?

Iraq WMD was garden-variety assault on a foreign territory.

"Russiagate" is this generation's red scare, a domestic assault on US civil rights.

Too bad Taibibi can't admit that. His Hunter-S-Thompson ICON-O-CLASTIC mantel has worn thin. His $$ must be on the line.

Mueller has already done far more than I ever expected him to, but I refuse to take Barr's word for what the report says.  I would call Barr a lying crapsack, but that would be an insult to lying crapsacks.

Soooo ...

You put yourself in the position to judge the truth embargoed by, at least, seven "lying crapsacks" (all veteran Republican bureucrats) hired by the DNC to railroad Trump into impeachment (which the majority leader has disavowed since January, because natural born punk) with a secret stash of inculpatory evidence.

From where does this expectation of honesty evidenced by Mueller's report come?
