Taibbi: It's Official - 'Russiagate' Is This Generation's WMD

There will be people protesting: the Mueller report doesn’t prove anything! What about the 37 indictments? The convictions? The Trump tower revelations? The lies! The meeting with Don, Jr.? The financial matters! There’s an ongoing grand jury investigation, and possible sealed indictments, and the House will still investigate, and…

Stop. Just stop. Any journalist who goes there is making it worse.

For years, every pundit and Democratic pol in Washington hyped every new Russia headline like the Watergate break-in. Now, even Nancy Pelosi has said impeachment is out, unless something “so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” against Trump is uncovered it would be worth their political trouble to prosecute.


The biggest thing this affair has uncovered so far is Donald Trump paying off a porn star. That’s a hell of a long way from what this business was supposedly about at the beginning, and shame on any reporter who tries to pretend this isn’t so.

The story hyped from the start was espionage: a secret relationship between the Trump campaign and Russian spooks who’d helped him win the election.

3. Taibbi is full of shit

It's important to mark on days like today which turncoats are shilling for Trump, because the time will come when they try to worm their way back into our good graces and we cannot let them.

The battle line is drawn. Know who our enemies are. Remember who stood up to be counted with the other side because there will be a day of reprisal.

4. Yes, I fully agree (and well said). Taibbi had quite the progressive following in his anti-Obama

 

days.

I despised him then and despise him now.

7. Zero Hedge is a nutty Austrian school blog.

I know you're pointing out the nuttiness, but I suggest we not give them clicks.

8. Yes it is. But like I mentioned Taibbi had a large following among progressives at Rolling Stone

 

I posted this so that people know who he is.

10. The only good thing about him that I can think of is this lead-in sentence about Goldman Sachs


several years ago he wrote an article, in Rolling Stone I think, about Goldman Sachs. It started with this sentence:
"Goldman Sachs is a giant vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money."

I just think it's an awesome sentence.
