If you want to know what embarrassing things government wants to hide, check their press releases late Friday. That’s when PR wings of public and private institutions drop their dirty laundry, knowing the weekend will help them keep things concealed in plain site. The Department of Justice is no different, releasing a bombshell acknowledgement last Friday that the “major” indictments over Russia’s “attack on our Democracy” was really a giant nothingburger.
Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s “big” hit on Russia’s interference with the 2016 election—better known as the Russia hoax—was finally revealed to be so inconsequential and loaded with holes that the DoJ was forced to drop charges. They cited “national security concerns,” though in reality everything is pretty much already out in public view.
Buck Sexton from The First lambasted the whole Mueller probe as that final remnants of Russia’s “influence” over the 2016 election have finally been quietly incinerated. He took some jabs at mainstream media long the way.
