New Narrative: The FBI Made Mistakes, But Trump Is Corrupt
When the FBI goes after Donald Trump with the intent of proving he colluded with Russia, and conducts "an intrusive investigation of the U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions" that in the view of Attorney General William Barr, "were insufficient to justify the steps taken," it's merely "serious errors." But Trump was corrupt from the start. This is the new narrative.
Today the Democrats in Congress are going to unveil their articles of impeachment against President Trump. These are based on the president’s alleged abuse of his office to strongarm Ukraine into supporting a conspiracy theory that benefits Russia and implicating the Bidens in a corruption investigation–for which Ukraine received $400 million in withheld Congressional aid.
Yesterday the Justice Department IG released its long-awaited report on the investigation into the investigation of Donald Trump, then-candidate, which morphed into the Russia collusion narrative, which became the Mueller report. The Mueller report alleged that the president might have made some indictable actions, if he could be indicted at all, related to his handling of the investigation itself. But it found no collusion.
That was the old narrative.
Today, the narrative is that Trump is corrupt, that he tried to collude with Russia but was either saved by incompetence of his campaign and himself, or by others around him whose inaction stopped the crime in progress. Meanwhile, the FBI made “mistakes,” but the “anti-Trump plot” is “debunked.”
