Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 03, 2018

There's a contagion of Washington coverage that isn't worthy of your time. The stories sound dramatic but tell you little, if anything.

Be smart: Jonathan Swan emails me: "The very important collective impact of this reporting is that it could make Trump more angry than ever about the probe."

See if you can spot the pattern:

"Source: Mueller looking into what Hicks knows." (CNN)

"Mueller asking if Trump knew about hacked Democratic emails before release." (NBC)

"Mueller asking about Trump's Russia business deals and Miss Universe pageant." (Newsweek)

"Mueller team asks about Trump's Russian business dealings as he weighed a run for president." (CNN)

"Mueller looking at Ivanka Trump's interaction with Russian lawyer at Trump Tower." (The Hill)

Why it doesn't matter: All we know is what yappy witnesses tell reporters they were asked about.




Alternate links: Google News | Twitter

News flash: Mueller is looking at everything.

That's his job. When he was named, he was empowered/instructed to look into the "FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters." That there is a broad mandate.

This gives us literally zero insight into what the special counsel is actually doing and thinking.

These kernels aren't from Mueller's office: We've seen time and again (and again) that his office is one of Washington's few leak-free zones.

Yes, it looks bad. Based on conversations with White House insiders, I can tell you they're more bearish than ever about the outcome. But we're all guessing.

ROC will be saying the exact same things right up until the day Trump resigns. Seen this movie before when it was Nixon in the crosshairs. His supporters clung to him as if their lives depended on it, took many of them years and years before they could finally admit that , yes, "their president was a crook." Same phenomenon going on now.

And what's funny, just like most mainstream conservatives who were defending Nixon, dopes like ROC like to imagine themselves as some sort of centrist "voice of reason".

Pack of idiots.

You DRtards are too funny, if Trump is forced from office I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, I didn't vote for him and know that Pence will be far more conservative, so be careful what you wish for.

Far more conservative, but at least he seems stable. That would be a massive step forward for our country.

"Progressives for Pence 2020!"

With the rotting corpse of Trump hanging around his neck, he's going to need a lot of help from Russia.

Is that what you're counting on?

I'm hoping you bonk your head and come to your senses.

The media has you wrapped around their finger.
