Trump, Russia, and the changing narrative

1) Team Trump, We had no contacts w/Russia.

2) Team Trump, OK we had contacts with Russia but nothing to do with the elections.

3) Team Trump, OK we had contacts with Russia and it had to do with the elections but
it didn't effect the outcomes to the elections.

4) Team Trump, OK we had contacts with Russia and it had to do with the elections and it effected the outcomes
of the elections. (Guaranteed that the Mueller report says as much.)

5) Team Trump, The DoJ says you can't indict a sitting President.

BTW last night at the gym CNN was on and the chyron @ the bottom of the screen as Sippy Cupp was talking (no
volume) read something like, "What is next now that we are post Mueller?" "They" are now pushing the false
narrative that the Mueller report exonerated Trump and company when the fact is that Barr shut down the Muller
investigation before he could write up a charging statement.

Can there be no doubt that Barr stopped Mueller's investigation before it was done?

And that Barr's summary of Mueller's report is a cover up that has been in the
works for long before Mueller turned in his documentation.

Trump and the GOP have a massive P.R./propaganda campaign going on right now ....

.... trying to tell us that the Mueller report cleared Trump but we haven't even
seen the report yet. The only thing that has been released is Barr's spin job on
the Mueller report and McConnell is right now blocking the release of the report

This is what they did with Kavanaugh too. They declared that an investigation
into Kavanaugh past had cleared him even though they really didn't have
an investigation because they didn't interview Kavanaugh or any of his accusers.

The NY Times bought into this crap with their headline yesterday .... something like
Mueller report clears Trump of collusion with Russia.

I'm calling bullshit on Barr's "Well the Russian government didn't help Trump."

Trump got help from the Russian FSB* and the Russian GRU** both of which
are part of the Russian government.

* Federal Security Services it replaced the KGB

** Russian Military Intelligence Services

Rep. John Robert Lewis on Joy Reid this AM

Rep. John Lewis, "There was a deliberate and systematic effort to rob America
of a free and fair election." (with the help of Russia) rough quote

I might be wrong but I think Trump and or his lawyers have seen the Mueller report and that ...

... is why he has been on a twitter and speaking meltdown all week.

What can you say?

I am sitting @ my local bar after going to the gym and
waiting to see a woman who will be in a few minutes and as I am waiting and I being a geek, so I'm reading a great book "The Unwinding," by George Packer and a random person comes up and asks what I'm reading so I tell her and show her the dust cover of the book. She reads a little and says something like, "It looks new age with some old school institution in it too."

All I could say is "Oh."

Btw The Unwinding is a great book... the middle class has been screwed, money controls DC, and things are complex.

Sorry to
