The trained hamsters of the mainstream media refuse to stray from their tired narrative of Russian collusion, event after the vaunted Mueller investigation announced on Friday that there is no evidence of collusion. "13 Russians Indicted" screamed one headline, and newsreaders breathlessly implied that there's a there, there. Those of us who have argued for over a year that the allegation of collusion between Trump and the Russians was fantasy, driven by Trump Derangement Syndrome and the inability of Democrats to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election, have been vindicated. The again, there was never any doubt that the fantasy claims were just that—fantasy.

The Wall Street Journal outlines the facts:
The Justice Department on Friday indicted three Russian companies and 13 individuals for interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and the man who should be most upset is Donald J. Trump. The 37-page indictment contains no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, but it does show a systematic effort to discredit the result of the 2016 election. On the evidence so far, President Trump has been the biggest victim of that effort, and he ought to be furious at Vladimir Putin.

The indictment documents a broad social-media and propaganda campaign operating out of Russia and involving hundreds of people starting in 2014 that “had a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system.” It certainly succeeded on that score, as Democrats and the media have claimed that Mr. Trump’s election is illegitimate because he conspired with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton. The charge has roiled American politics and made governing more difficult.

The good news for Mr. Trump is that the indictment reveals no evidence of collusion. The Russians “posted derogatory information about a number of candidates,” the indictment says, and by 2016 “included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump” and “disparaging Hillary Clinton.” But it adds that the Russians “communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign,” and it offers no claims of a conspiracy.
Moving quickly, the grand poobahs of the Democratic party, who for over a year have claimed "collusion!!!" have now done an Emily Latella. They now ask why Trump isn't more concerned about the Russian interfernce.

Odd, isn't it, that they don't ask why Barack Obama, who was POTUS at the time, wasn't more concerned? Why his Justice Department, intelligence agencies, and FBI didn't act to stop Russian interference, or at least announce it so the general public was aware. They also seem notably unconcerned that the Clinton campaign indirectly colluded with the Russians (and paid to do so), through a collection of cut-outs (e.g., her legal firm, Fusion GPS), of course, to develop a phony dossier trashing her opponent. Nah ... that's just politics, right?

It is astonishing that a Democratic party that roiled American politics with blatantly false claims of collusion for over one year has received no criticism in the main stream media for its dishonest claims, now that they have been proven false. Actually ... it's not astonishing at all.
