I just watched the video of Rod Rosenstein’s news conference regarding the indictment of Russians by the Mueller team.
And the first thing that popped into my head was Peggy Lee’s old song “Is that all there is?”
Here. Watch the video yourself.

The crimes they are charged with are Conspiracy to Defraud the United States, Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud and Bank Fraud, and six counts of Aggravated Identity Theft.
So, let me see if I have this right.
Nothing in this indictment has to do with “colluding with the Trump campaign.”
In fact, as Mr. Rosenstein points out:
“After the elections, the defendants allegedly staged rallies to support the President-elect while simultaneously staging rallies to protest his election.”
And this activity did not affect the outcome of the election.
So again I ask. Is that all there is?
Don’t get me wrong. These idiots should be prosecuted for these crimes.
But for more than a year we have been told that Russians conspired with the Trump campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton.
It’s hard to “conspire with the Russians” when you don’t know they’re Russians.
Or as Ben Shapiro puts it over at The Daily Wire, “Collusion only counts if you know you’re soliciting help from foreign sources. Those involved with the Trump campaign apparently didn’t.”
Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign was paying Fusion GPS to have a glorified muckraker gather disinformation on Donald Trump from the Russians.
This is all there is.
Some Trump people in Florida got hoodwinked by people with fake identities.
But Hillary’s team knowingly financed Russian disinformation to undermine Donald Trump.
What’s worse, that same disinformation was then used as the basis for a FISA warrant.
So if that’s all there is, why keep the Mueller investigation going?
The very fact that this indictment says that no Americans “wittingly” participated, there can be no collusion.
Shut the damn thing down.
And, while we’re at it, appoint a special counsel to investigate DossierGate.
On a side note. I’m looking forward to reading Andrew McCarthy’s take on all this.
