Hated it when Barr gave a summary of Mueller.Beeg's long-awaited IG report is a huge nothing burger. Team MAGA, Hannity and co. look like fools again. Thoughts and prayers.
The NYT is perhaps the least reputable source available in 2019, but I will humor you anyway. How do you reconcile the following:
The F.B.I. never tried to place undercover agents or informants inside the Trump campaign, a highly anticipated inspector general’s report is expected to find.www.nytimes.com
Do you know what "inside Donald J. Trump's campaign" means? Let's start with this: do you know what "inside" means?The NYT is perhaps the least reputable source available in 2019, but I will humor you anyway. How do you reconcile the following:
"The Justice Department’s inspector general found no evidence that the F.B.I. attempted to place undercover agents or informants inside Donald J. Trump’s campaign in 2016 as agents investigated whether his associates conspired with Russia's election interference operation, people familiar with a draft of the inspector general’s report said."
"The F.B.I. did have an undercover agent who posed as Mr. Halper’s assistant during a London meeting with Mr. Papadopoulos in August 2016."
Or, what the Trumpists call "complete and total exoneration". No collusion!And, of course, the MSM will contort whatever is said to excuse the Obama administration for judgment errors that can’t be proven to be corrupt.
Bill Barr was never qualified to do the job. He was simply hand-picked by Trump's staff. Why should any American believe or trust a single thing he says?Lyin Bill Barr has no shame. But we knew this already. Pathetic. He should resign and officially become Trump's personal lawyer, which is all he's been doing anyway. They have an excellent track record of facing criminal charges for doing their client's bidding.
Written by some attorney in Pittsburgh, who in August wrote an article for RCP titled "Why the Dem Media Lies About Charlottesville".This is an illuminating article from RCP. What I took away from it: the scope of the IG’s report (confined to being within the walls of the FBI) vs the breadth of the Ukraine story.
Article seems well cited. It filled me in on a lot I didn’t understand about the Ukraine saga: DNC server, Crowdstrike, Biden.
