Russiagate: Republicans Had Better Work It

Some of the spook terms the mad-hatter media had applied to President Trump, a rather provincial New Yorker, over the two plus years of Russiagate. Via Matt Taibbi:

The New Yorker asked, Was Trump “meeting his handler” in Helsinki? The Daily Beast asked why he dodged the question: “Is he a Russian asset?”

The New York Times didn’t even end this sentence with a question mark: “Trump Is Compromised by Russia,” read a not-unusual editorial in the New York Times last November.

“What Robert Mueller knows — and Isn’t Telling Us,” proclaimed Wired.

Dan Rather told us that “what Mueller knows” will make the Cohen/Manafort pleas “pale in comparison.”

Now, the mad media is hanging everything on “The report’s most-quoted line:

” … while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’” …

Hope springs eternal.
