    One final wasted ejaculation from the despised corporate media.

    Special Counsel’s Office | Department of Justice
    https://www.justice.gov/sco

    On May 17, 2017, Robert S. Mueller III was appointed by acting Attorney … Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election … To enable us to respond in a manner that will be of most help to you, please ..

    The only quote of any worth. Barr (from the Instapundit link)

    “As the Special Counsel’s report makes clear, the Russian government sought to interfere in our election. But thanks to the Special Counsel’s thorough investigation, we now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign – or the knowing assistance of any other Americans for that matter. That is something that all Americans can and should be grateful to have confirmed. “

    Read it.
    – No collusion
    – No obstruction (in fact the reverse)

  5. So NO ONE AT ALL in a nation of 320 million colluded with Russia.

    This has been the dampest of squibs.

  6. Initial Jobless Claims Tumble To Fresh 50 Year Lows

    That partial government shutdown sure weakened the American economy. LOL.

  7. And the Pravda on the Yarra and Their ABC are still printing distorted stories about the outcome, and they sound like they’re just plagiarising the NYT and Washington Post.

    It’s so great to watch as the Left and MSM spit the dummy once again.

  8. Percy Popinjay

    we now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign – or the knowing assistance of any other Americans for that matter

    Yep, read it weep, you hysterical wankers.

  9. Dr Faustus

    And Mueller was too smart to conflate ‘trying to influence events‘ with ‘obstruction‘ – particularly given there was no evidence of actual legal obstruction by the White House, which he reports to have cooperated with the Special Counsel unreservedly.

    He has left that for stupid people to do.

    Hollywood knows

    Ron Perlman
    @perlmutations
    He was obstructing then, he is obstructing now. Welcome, Billie Barr, to team obstruction! On a side note…

    For a rookie ya look like shit!

  11. These actors should stick to acting on a movie set and not in public. Better yet, the sooner Hollywood is replaced by CGI actors the better,.

  12. stackja

    bemused – Most Hollywood actors supported Stalin. Now they support so called socialists. DT is their enemy.

    Ron Perlman

    Arguably the ugliest man on the planet. It was extremely disappointing he wasn’t eaten in Aliens 4.

  14. Dr Fred Lenin

    Joe McCarthy knew where tho subversive commos were ,Hollywood was a nest of them ,trying to push their insidious foul beliefs through films . Even in those days the commos infested important positions .
    Cambridge was a nest of commo indoctrinators indoctrinating students ,setting them up for recruitment
    by NKVD ,philby etc.
    The institutions are still full of recividest commos throughout the Western world ,a legacy of the Failed soviet onion . Witness Venezuela , ,the US decromats the EU,the UN , ,Brexit sabotage ,and our own shorten ,his “program “advances communist fascism ,following in the footsteps of narx ,ulyanov stalin hitler mao ,castro. Polpot ,the kims guevara etc etc ad nauseum .

    Australian Government Confirms Official Role in “Spygate”…

    Wow……. with China circling the south china sea and eurasia like a rabid white pointer this is how the dumbtwits in the Liberal Party decided to treat a prospective, then, U.S President of the United States of America.

    Downer should be thrown out of the Liberal Party then gagged, scragged and debagged. Apologies will not suffice. Five Eyes be fucked, three arsholes using a prickly pear to cover their arses. Don’t sit down you arseholes, it’s gonna hurt. Shameful and embarrassing pricks.

  16. Remember how Turnbull spoke about Trump?

  17. Bad Samaritan

    As I understand it “obstruction” is something similar to perverting the course of justice in Oz. Since there’s no crime to pervert the course of justice from, it’s all over, isn’t it…..

    Have I got this wrong?

  18. win

    Remember Turnbull met Clinton and every one else pre 2016 U.S. election but not Trump.
    Downer has entered the history books and will have a starring role in the movie relegating Turnbull to anonymity.

    I’m not so sure it was Downer’s fault.

    The way I read it, he informed Canberra, Canberra decided to inform the US embassy, and it was someone in the US bureaucracy who decided to get the FBI involved.

    If so, Downer hasn’t done anything wrong. The stupidity and treason seem to have occurred downstream from his involvement.

    I suggest that you have not been paying attention. What seems clear is that Downer, Dearlove, Halper and Mifsud setup George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Mike Kelly that enabled John Brennan to create the ‘Electronic Communication’ (EC) that established ‘Operation Hurricane’. It’s in the origination of the collusion narrative where the massive abuse of power is, not what they did once the narrative became a forest fire.

    The Downer meeting with George Pappa was not an accident. Downer sought out Pappa on the instruction/request (not sure which but this is significant) of the usurpers within the US alphabet agencies.
    This was a CIA operation run by Brennan and Clapper with the full knowledge of the White House.

  22. Rob MW

    Opps – correction – should be Mike Flynn and NOT Mike Kelly and it’s ‘Operation Crossfire Hurricane’ not just simply ‘Operation Hurricane’.

    Sorry.

    Yes, also Shorten.

    Precisely.

    When I was in the business, one of the cardinal rules is that you don’t collect on your five-eyes allies. This is what Downer appears to have knowingly done, in the most cack-handed way imaginable, and with the greatest possible downside. Here we have an Australian citizen knowingly engaging in espionage on behalf of foreign interests, with the object of undermining an allied country’s presidential election. I should go review the legislation and see what it has to say about that sort of thing.

  25. Exit Stage Right

    Tuned into a little CH7 News in Brisbane.
    Always slightly less left biased than CHNein.
    According to 7, Trump has many questions to answer and impeachment is still a live option because…..
    I shook my head and said to wifey, these people are just spouting the American Main stream press outlets. No objectivity or questioning of the feeds they are getting from the US.
    I work with the elderly who are not on the internet or who cannot afford Foxtel and every day they parrot the same shit that they heard on the MSM or FTA channels or ABC radio that Trump is the devil. I ask why and they are unable to elaborate.

    Separately from the crime investigated there could be a crime against the process by which this is established.

    Suppose the Dimocrats engineered some way by which exonerating evidence was obscured or delayed.
