Meh. I am unimpressed.
There is, however, this admission: “There is no evidence to suggest that the promised damaging information was related to Russian government computer hacking that led to the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails.”
And this one, exonerating Trump Jr. from “colluding” with the Russians [always implying, the Russian government]: “Mr. Trump acknowledged that he was interested in receiving damaging information about Mrs. Clinton, but gave no indication that he thought the lawyer might have been a Kremlin proxy.”
And, there is no evidence that the lawyer was a Kremlin proxy.
I have come to believe that there was no Russian government election mischief. I have no doubt they attempt to hack politicians’ correspondence, and into other government computers. I expect that; hope we are successfully doing the same. But, last week we saw the “17 intelligence agencies” boast plop to the floor. And, Clapper is their source for this: Clapper, infamous for assuring us that the NSA was not intercepting our phone calls. Perhaps the Russian government was trying to collect email and other documents to use against Hillary later on. But, then, it was not necessary, was it? Can’t blackmail someone whose party couldn’t get her elected.
Truth: 63 million fed-up voters colluded to put Donald Trump in the White House.
NYT: Weird. Deranged. Not to be believed.
