While the Trump lickspittles at Fox News are celebrating what they think is the end of the Russia bother for Dear Leader, anchor Chris Wallace warned that “the fact is,” special counsel Robert Mueller’s letter to Attorney General William Barr is an ominous storm cloud.
Appearing on Shepard Smith Reporting yesterday (yet apparently snubbed by the prime time shows) Wallace took aim at his opinion-side colleagues for not trafficking in truth:
WALLACE: I know there’s some people who don't think that this March 27 letter is a big deal and some opinion people — some opinion people who appear on this network who may be pushing a political agenda — but, you know, we have to deal in facts.
And the fact is that this letter from the special counsel, and it was one of at least three contacts with the attorney general between March 25 and March 27, was a clear indication that [Mueller] was upset, very upset with the letter that had been sent out by the attorney general [(mis)characterizing the Mueller report] and wanted it changed or wanted it at least added to and the attorney general refused to do so.
There are a lot of people having read now the full report or as much as it has been not redacted agree that he didn’t reveal what was fully in the report. Again, those aren’t opinions, that’s not a political agenda, those are the facts.
On her podcast, prime time Trumper Laura Ingraham dismissed Wallace’s comments as “ridiculous.”
But we’ll see who gets the last laugh here.

[only people who have seen Mel Brooks’ classic side-splitting sci-fi spoof “Spaceballs” will understand that wisecrack. Captain Lone Starr’s sidekick was named “Barf” — he was played by the late John Candy]
Johnny-come-lately Trump sycophant Lindsey Graham declared the Mueller report officially over, an echoing of his masters at Fox News and in the White House. He plans on #Benghazi 2 hearings featuring Strzok whose crime is saying the things Graham used to say about Trump before Graham crawled up Trump’s ass.
With Barr in contempt of the House for refusing to testify before them and the White House promising to block anyone from testifying before the House regarding the Mueller investigation, I’m sure Fox News feels empowered to predict all’s happy in Trumpland.
We are discovering how weak a single side of Congress is when faced with the total corruption of the opposing party. Lets hope Nancy keeps up the pressure and can expose Trump for the complete scumbag he is.
