    Let's see. Modern Austria. Of which it was said had two major accomplishments.

    Convincing the world that Mozart was from Austria

    And that Hitler was from Germany.

    Let's wait for the conviction, shall we? In this day and age, information warfare is for real.

    Amazing.

    Caught on tape, elaborate, immediately admits guilt and resigns when the tape comes out. The conspiracy to explain all of that would be...?

    why did he resign? The US could send a team of left-wing led investigators and after two years they still won't have anything on him! :shrug:

    Said he, after a right-wing led investigation found more than 52 criminals surrounding his President as well as evidence of obstruction in his own country.

    And produced no findings which could be described as "no collusion".

    Are you referring to the Mueller investigation? You do know I would hope that Mueller and his entire investigative team are Democrats?

    In the same way that you could be described as an erudite and highly intelligent individual. In other words, not at all.

    Mueller is a registered Republican, has been for years, and got his first appointment from Ronald Reagan.

    It doesn't matter what they are. They are investigators and did an exhaustive job within their remit.

    A remit which, contrary to common belief, did not address the question of collusion.

    You seriously think a government employees political beliefs (strong enough that they have party membership) had no impact on their work? Get real.

    So you think Mueller was biased by his politics?

    Apparently so:

    Don't worry. As I said his politics don't matter because he's a professional and was never given a remit of looking for collusion in the first place.

    I'm assuming you have in fact read the report and not just the headlines written in newspapers about Barr reporting on it?

    I just finished reading Wikipedia. It seemed to lack a clear narrative and it was obvious who did it from the first chapter.

    You misspelled the relative pronoun just to spite books in general, didn't you?

    It was a setup though, right? The house was bugged and the woman was posing as a well-connected Russian. But I haven't been able to find anything about who set it up. :huh:

    Maybe Mueller is a Democratic sleeper agent who registered as a Republican back in the 1970s and spent decades as a registered Republican and an appointee of Republican presidents lying in wait for the moment when he would be needed.

    It was a setup, designed to prove that many other meetings weren't, as he quickly admitted when this video came out, leaving us with names and dates. Whoever exposed him was working for Spiegel, though it is unclear whether they only contacted Spiegel and collected after the deed.
