Nothing at All

For about a microsecond, the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd within the four constituencies much have felt a tingle run down their collective legs. After all, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that he would hold a press conference to announce indictments that have come out of the now infamous Russia investigation. OMG, some of the TDS crowd must have thought, our dreams have come true, our deepest desires have been achieved—here come the indictments we told everyone—absolutely everyone—were in the offing. Except ... nope.

Rosenstein announced the indictment of 12 Russian nationals for hacking DNC computers. He specifically noted that there was no evidence that the hacking affected the results of the 2016 Presidential election (you know, the election that Hillary would have won hands down were it not for Trump "collusion" with Russia). To quote the deputy AG:
"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result."
Hmmm. Last time I checked, everyone working on the Trump campaign was an American citizen and everyone working in the Trump White House is an American citizen. And the result of election itself—unaffected.

Of course, the Democrats love to trot out the fact that 17 or whatever indictments have arisen out of Robert Mueller's investigation (a.k.a, "witch hunt") but not a single one is even remotely connected to Russian collusion or the election. But Mueller's evidence-free "investigation" will grind on endlessly, ensnaring members of the GOP who, like most of the Washington elite working for both parties, have enriched themselves and their friends by influence peddling. Of course, Hillary Clinton and her crowd were above all that. It's just through hard work, intelligence, and moral superiority that Bill and Hillary Clinton went from "near bankrupt" 20 years ago to a net worth in excess of $150 million today. And all that without working in the private sector for a single day. Amazing!

Funny, though, that Rosenstein, the DoJ, and Mueller, with all the resources they can bring to bear, haven't indicted a single solitary person connected to Clinton, or any other Democrat for that matter. You'd think that Clinton's effort to affect the election by paying (through her law firm) for the creation of a phony anti-Trump dossier in cooperation with the Russians might cause Mueller's eyebrows to arch upward. But noooo. You'd think that when Clinton turned the dossier over to the FBI who knowing its provenance, still used it as evidence to get permission from a FISA court to spy on the Trump campaign, might cause Mueller's intrepid band of lawyers (most Clinton donors) to squint their eyes. Noooo.

All of that is just business as usual. Nothing for Mueller or his team to see there, nothing at all.
