Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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?
