Ok...I’ll bite. Would have been much wiser to keep his mouth shut. That said...he does not like McCain ar all...and the fact that MCCain peddled the fake dossier probably pissed him off more. He does not have to like him because he was a war hero...but some things are better left unsaid.
Now...no collusion from anyone within the campaign (previous indictments show that) and according to the AG and deputy AG, no obstruction. Total BS from the get go...let’s get to the real people behind this sham.
My point was just about Trump's despicable attack on McCain, but since you raised the Mueller report, I'll get to that in a minute. Meanwhile, you made a factual error in saying that McCain "peddled" the dossier in question. Here is what actually happened, according to the Arizona AG (a Republican): "He got the information and he read it and it's pretty explosive. He immediately delivered it to the FBI and said this is for you all to deal with. That's what a statesman does. That's what a good American does. And that's what John McCain did. " No "peddling" involved. He received a document worthy of investigation by law enforcement on its merits and did the right thing with it.
As for the Mueller report, you made another factual error, Napa. You said there was no obstruction but that's not what the report said:
Bman, there are a lot of things wrong with your post. Peddling may have been the wrong word...but I don't think McCain had the document first. It was a bunch of unsubstantiated drivel and was purely fake. That document did not warrant investigation by law enforcement if they would have done any research and saw where it derived from, they would have disregarded it.
Correct that the Mueller report did not absolve of obstruction...however, if you read my post...I stated that the AG and Deputy AG concluded there was not enough information for a charge on obstruction.
Lastly, your statement that this investigation led to the conviction of several of Trump's top campaign people...none of the convictions had anything to do with Russian collusion. Don't mislead...a complete farce.
