The Democrats are connecting the dots for the far too stupid American public. Ploddingly stupid. The Republicans are still crying about “Why was there an investigation?” and “Why didn’t you pursue Hillary?” Also, they are sticking pins in the balloons holding other ongoing matters aloft. If any of the sitting Republicans on that committee are returned to office (at least the ones I’ve heard so far) then their constituents are even dumber than the average American.
Devin Nunes, Trump’s personal congressional lapdog, appears to be obsessed with Fusion GPS. It is regrettable that no one took the time to refute the oft-repeated lie that Fusion GPS started it’s opposition research under Hillary Clinton, the Stormtrumpers favorite whipping boy. As the quote below illustrates, the Clinton campaign did not initiate the research that the Republicans want to pin on her,
In September 2015, Fusion GPS was hired by The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative political website, to do opposition research on Trump and other Republican presidential candidates. In spring 2016 when Trump had emerged as the probable Republican candidate, the Free Beacon stopped funding investigation into Trump. From April 2016 through October 2016, the law firm Perkins Coie, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, retained Fusion GPS to continue opposition research on Trump.Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nor is the Steele dossier the basis for opening investigations into the Trump campaign, again, an oft-repeated lie by all the Republican members of the two committees who interrogated Mueller.
Mueller can stick to the script as far as I’m concerned. What he discovered was enough to have Donald Trump impeached. That is clearly what he was hinting at while he was on the witness stand.
December 22, 2019. It is now clear to me that most people had no idea what Mueller found out, even six months later. It is almost as if their brains can’t retain facts in the face of so much repeated bullshit.
