Trump is gonna let the Mueller investigation end all on it's own. It's obvious. All the hysteria of the past 2 weeks about his supposed impending firing of Mueller was a distraction. He was never going to fire Mueller and he's not going to

Mueller's officially end his investigation all on his own and he's gonna say he found no evidence of Trump campaign/Russian collusion during the 2016 election.

Democrats & DNC Media are going to LITERALLY have nothing coherent to say in response to that.
Mueller's team was 100% partisan.

That's why it's brilliant. NOBODY will be able to claim this team of partisan Democrats didn't go the EXTRA 20 MILES looking for ANY evidence they could find of Trump campaign/Russian collusion during the 2016 election
They looked high.

They looked low.

They looked underneath every rock, behind every tree, into every bush.

And they found...NOTHING.
Those saying Mueller will file obstruction charges against Trump: laughable.

What documents did Trump tell the Mueller team it couldn't have? What witnesses were withheld and never interviewed?

THERE WEREN'T ANY.

Mueller got full 100% cooperation as the record will show.
Not 1 indictment the Mueller team issued had anything to do with Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016.

Manafort was known to be 1 of the most corrupt people in DC, doing all kinds of illegal shady stuff. No surprise he got nailed on illegal lobbying/bank fraud
EVERY OTHER INDICTMENT IS A PROCESS VIOLATION.

Perjury during questioning by FBI agents/Mueller investigators.

It's over a year since Flynn pleaded guilty to 'lying' to Peter Strzok & Joseph Pientka during an interview about phone calls to the Russian ambassador.
Flynn's sentencing is now set for Dec. 18. Unless it's changed again, as Mueller's team desperately plays 'hide the ball' on the Strzok issue, the lead agent in the case against Flynn getting his ass FIRED from the FBI for violating all kinds of rules and protocols.
Papadopoulos was entrapped the same way. Like Flynn, NEVER charged with conspiracy or collusion but instead for giving several non-truthful answers during an interview. For this serious crime a judge sentenced PapaD to....14 days in jail.
Manafort: bank fraud/money laundering/tax evasion/illegal lobbying
Flynn: process perjury
PapaD: process perjury
Some lawyer who's name I don't recall at the moment: process perjury
2 dozen Russians running a troll farm: no effect on the election.
Meanwhile guess who's still out there in the weeds, getting ready to unleash hell? EVERYBODY has forgotten about him. As intended.

FISC/FUSION/STEELE/PERKINS COIE/DNC/HILLARY CAMPAIGN

He hasn't gone anywhere and he's got it all. All the fully uredacted SpyGate docs.
Reminder: Horowitz is the guy who EXPOSED the entire SpyGate plot. When he surfaced in Oct '17 after digging for more than 10 months into the evidence, he passed some on to Congress.

So people forgot about Horowitz & focused on the Congressional investigations.
Good. GOOD. That's great. Don't change a thing.

Everything you know came through Horowitz first. He's WHY Trump knows how this is going to go down when the bell is rung and the Pandora's Box gets the lid ripped off the top of it.

This is why Trump isn't worried a bit.
Trump has SEEN all the unredacted SpyGate docs. He knows exactly what they'll show. Not only was there no Russian collusion, but corrupt gov't officials in LEO/Intel agencies conspired to FAKE Russian collusion to help Hillary win the election.

Then to try to impeach him.
Trump's holding all the aces and the Democrats/SpyGate plotters are holding a shit hand.

Watch it play out.

Here's the great thing: JW is eventually going to get those Benghazi emails. Don't know about getting Clinton & Co. to testify under oath, but all JW really needs is those emails.


The emails from Clinton's server on Benghazi are going to show:

1) they knew it was a AQ terrorist attack from the start
2) they decided to leave those people in Benghazi hanging out there on their own.

Since plenty of 'missing' Hillary Clinton emails have turned up [remember the 700,000 Clinton emails on the Weiner laptop? I do! *gigglesnort!*] you can bet they are covered in JW's FOIA lawsuit.

Reminder: Comey managed to BULLSHIT everybody that 'all' the emails had been reviewed using this cool new technique to sort through 700,000 emails in just a few days. Then this came out:

The fact that Comey claimed his crack FBI team - with Peter Sztrok on it! managed to review 700,000 emails in a marathan 12 hour span was clearly bullshit.

And now it's been proven to be bullshit.
THIS.

Russia hasn't been a willing partner in this treaty for almost 3 decades. We should have ended the pretense long ago.

Naturally, Rand Paul is telling anyone who will listen to him that Trump is making a HUGE MISTAKE here.


Rand is just like his dad, Ron. 100% isolationist.

They've never grasped that 100% isolationist is not 'America First' when you examine it. It really means 'America Alone'.

The consistent grousing of pursuing military alliances with allies - like Trump is doing now with Saudi Arabia.

So of course Rand has also spent the last 2 days loudly calling for Trump to kill the arms deal with Saudi Arabia and end our alliance with them.

What Obama was engineering with his foreign policy was de facto isolationism: pull all the troops out of the ME, abandon the region to Iranian control as a client state of Russia.

Obama wasn't building an alliance with Iran; he was facilitating abandoning the ME to Iran.

Obama wouldn't even leave behind a token security force, so of course what happened was the rise of ISIS. He also pumped billions of dollars into the Iranian coffers, which the Mullah's used to fund destabilizing activity [wars/terrorism] & criminal enterprises all over the globe
Thread in progress that makes an excellent point: Far Left Progressives thought they had ALREADY WON. And I mean already won *permanently*.

After Obama won in 2008 there were numerous articles/books about the New Permanent Democratic


James Carville among others were crowing "The DemuhKRATS are gunna beah in POWAH faw FAWTY YEAHS!"

Obama easily beating Romney in 2012 only entrenched this notion.

Republican gains in the House in 2010/12/14, hey just minor setbacks, soon to be corrected!

The arrogant triumphalism on the part of the Progressives was insufferable in 2008 and by 2012 it was even worse.

Republicans had a dying party, I was told. Democratic Presidents & an activist judiciary would keep that GOP house in line until 'common sense' prevailed.

This is why 2 years later, Progressives are still throwing tantrums and refusing to accept what happened.

They truly believed what they were told, that it was all over and they had won.

You're watching people go through an existential crisis.

Control of the Executive branch and control of the Judicial branch were key essentials to enacting and then enforcing a large part of the Progressive agenda for America.

And they'd won, you see. The redneck bitter clingers out there couldn't stop the coming transformation.

This idea - that elections should translate into policy - is not wrong at all. But political science can help explain why it's not working this way. There are three main explanations: 1. mandates are constructed, not automatic, 2. party asymmetry, 3. partisan conpetition 1/

Trump's demonstrably false fraud nonsense - it derailed an emerging mandate news cycle. Winners of elections get what they get - institutional control - but can't expect much beyond that unless the perception of an election mandate takes hold. And it didn't. 4/

Let's turn to the legislation element of this. There's just an asymmetry in terms of passing a relief bill. Republicans are presumably less motivated to get some kind of deal passed. Democrats are more likely to want to do *something.* 5/
