The Mueller report marks the conclusion of the dirtiest political trick in our history.
It all started when either the Clinton campaign or the DNC contracted with a law firm to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. They hired a firm called Fusion GPS which in turn hired a former British spy and Trump hater named Christopher Steele. He created the infamous Steele dossier. He has admitted that much of the information came from a CNN web site anybody could post to.
Steele then met with reporters and FBI agents. He needn’t have bothered. Democrats were spreading it around. John McCain received a copy and sent it to the FBI, concerned that the allegations might be true. An official at the Justice Department had a wife who worked for Fusion GPS. He could see to it that the FBI investigated it and intelligence agencies were notified.
The story might have ended there but Trump won the election. Democrats then had a feeding frenzy over the supposed collusion. The story was hyped so much that they made it sound like talking to a Russian was a felony.
Jeff Sessions recused himself since he regularly talked to Russians as part of his Senate duties. That put it into the lap of Rod Rosenstein, a recent Trump appointee. He named Robert Mueller as a special counsel. Mueller then hired people like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page to conduct the investigation.
A few diehards are trying to keep this going. One member of Congress is even claiming the Steele dossier is true. The Democratic Party and the country would be better off if we never heard the word collusion again.
