**SHOCKING !** IT WAS NOT A HOAX !

With the release of the full Mueller Report and the House Intel interviews, the evidence will show that the FBI had a duty and responsibility to investigate what they heard and what they were told under oath.

General Flynn had pleaded guilty. He lied to the FBI.

Donald Trump relieved him of his duty as the National Security Adviser because he reportedly lied to VP Pence.

Bill Barr covered up the Mueller Report to protect Donald Trump.

Several witnesses, under oath, told the Mueller team about the many connections to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

Sadly, nothing will be done. Donald J Trump has already been impeached. And Moscow Mitch has been proven as wrong as Bill Barr. They betrayed our country.

The only news to glean from the release of all the documents is that it was not a "hoax". It was a necessary investigation which should have been taken seriously by Democrats and Republicans, not just the Democrats. It should have been "bi-partisan". Instead, Republicans chose Party over Country.

And they have their TV-watching dimwit President to push their agendas (as long as it doesn't negatively affect him).

Trump basically ran as the Fox News candidate, and the other Fox News cult members recognized it.

the problem is not fox. fox is part of the free speech spectrum. it can't be locally coordinated and there are alternatives a click away. and they can't get half as outrageous or racist or lie as much as talk radio.

limbaugh says the flynn thing proves ass fact that obama was conspiring with the FBI to do a coup on trump- "the legitimately elected president" . he started that right after trump was inaugurated and mueller and dems mistake was not to realize putin's been using limbaugh and talk radio long before it was using social media.

republicans/trump/putin need democrats to think the problem is fox so they can keep doing the groundwork repetition with talk radio

and there's not much that can be done about fox - except through talk radio. talk radio is looking at a perfect storm. with limbaugh probably dying with lung cancer and artificial intelligence making it easy and cheap to do stoprush x 100, and it wouldn't take much organized activism to force the ad industry to have to ask all ad clients if they REALLY want to keep supporting COVID denial and global warming and racism and kids in cages and trump - instead of bundling them onto it to keep it alive

there is no way they could keep enough advertisers and a lot of stations would end up changing programming. with their monopoly falling apart a lot of republican senators would see it wouldn't be there to protect them from kissing trump's ass - or to intimidate them. they would have to find a way to dump him.

today is a big chance for them to turn on him - one or two supremes need to vote to force duetche bank to hand over his tax docs.

without his friend limbaugh and talk radio falling apart he'd have to go

They will go to their favorite website and catch just the cherry picked excerpts the Party wants them to see.

And you will talk to one of them and wonder, "How the Hell did this person get this all so wrong?"

I suppose the proper remedy then would be war crimes tribunals to weed out the traitors and deal with them appropriately.

I sincerely hope our 2021 Attorney General, Kamala Harris, investigates the ever loving crap out of Trump, Kushner, Don Jr., Eric, White House Barbie, Flynn, Barr, the entirety of Trump's administration and appointees, and his GOP accomplises. Use the fucking Rico Act on the whole bunch, and put every damned one of them in prison. Then make sure the corona virus is widely distributed throughout that prison.

limbaugh started his show claiming barr's 'clearing' of flynn as proof obama and schiff are just trying to overthrow a democratically elected trump. and then trump calls it treason formally later in an appearance.

media needs to notice that limbaugh started his show today talking about exhoneration for trump - but when did limbaugh get the news compared to when it was first announced in the MSM?
