There will be new facts, a lot of hair splitting in the House, and there may be criminal prosecutions for fraud and mob-related crimes. But Barr has just handed Trump control of the narrative, which is all he cares about.

There is also no doubt that Trump tried to help the Russians cover up their crime of electoral interference by denying it happened, firing people looking into it, publicly taking Putin's word over the US intel community. Why is that not obstruction of justice, Mr. Barr?

There is no doubt Putin's people took part in a criminal conspiracies to affect the US elections (per Mueller indictments and Barr letter). Trump sought to benefit from those crimes, and did. His denials are akin to saying his election fell off a truck.

The economy? Figuratively speaking, he's built it out of rotten concrete and told contractors they don't need to worry abt regulation. But last week's bond market inversion was like an early tremor in a high-rise disaster movie. It could be Trump's Towering Inferno, and ours.

I worry that Trump's overreach, like that of Cheney/Bush, will get us into another wildly destructive war, most likely with Iran. But I do think he has a deep aversion to foreign military adventures, which is some consolation.

Then it seems possible Trump will try to turn the prosecution spotlight around to focus on Hillary Clinton ... again. We've heard noises like that previously from him, his boy, from obsequious Lindsey Graham, and now, oh yeah, the Russians.https://t.co/60kkmWvaFk

For starters: The logic of the Trump "exoneration" narrative presumably will lead to pardons for those jailed while remaining silent, notably Manafort. His silence may have been the roadblock that prevented the conspiracy charge from sticking.

"Putin is a master of mind games learned as a Soviet intelligence agent. Trump, with his blend of narcissism and ignorance, presents a soft target for these games. He is an empty vessel into which ideas can easily be seeded." https://t.co/WEB9sOSPNR

Otto Warmbier Parents Hit Out at Trump for Backing Kim Jong Un - The fact is, Trump used the Warmbier family and Otto's memory the same way he uses everyone, as disposable means to his self-serving ends. https://t.co/hWxZyQ6hrA via @thedailybeast

@StevenBeschloss @GadflyQuebecTrump is a poor man's idea of a rich man, a wrestling fan's idea of a smart man, a reality tv watcher's idea of a powerful boss, a Russian's idea of a useful idiot - all major factors in his election.

We are all quoting Yeats these days as the center fails to hold and our innocence is drowned. But Auden knew a thing or two about strongmen and sycophants, especially ‘respectable senators’ ... Might just need to sub ‘Twitter posts’ for ‘poetry’

Disinformation is not so much about fooling people into believing lies, it is about convincing them there is no such thing as objective truth. Clapper says that was Russia’s crime, and who could be a better accomplice than Trump? https://t.co/KyVeVAhN2Q
