Republican candidate Austin Petersen had his Twitter account suspended for 12 hours after thousands of antifa communist Democrats are triggered by a Stalin gif he posted. No, this isn’t the Babylon Bee. Petersen posted the gif in response to one pundit’s ridiculous assertion that Petersen had paid the Russians off to hack Claire McCaskill’s email account. Petersen is in an uphill battle in the Republican primary to take on McCaskill for her tenuously held Senate seat in Missouri. He has caused a splash with his AR-15 and 3D gun printer giveaways through the campaign.
Is North Korea building new ballistic missiles? That’s the claim by Washington Post citing unnamed US spies who decided to share classified intelligence with the news agency on the condition of anonymity. Of course, we’ve seen so much fake news coming from unnamed sources through WaPo and others that there really can’t be too much stock put in this. It would absolutely benefit Democrats in November to blunt the progress Trump has made with North Korea. And it seems like a very big risk for people in our spy agencies to tell the Washington Post something so sensitive. So for now, we’ll stick with the official story.
There was no collusion, and even if there was it’s not a crime. That’s the latest from Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani. Guiliani made the claim Monday on Fox & Friends. Depending on the facts and circumstances, he’s correct. If Trump didn’t commission hackers to break into the DNC’s servers or somehow cause them to break the law, then any other sort of collusion is meaningless. Even if Trump arranged and met with the Russian attorney in Trump Tower, which he didn’t, it still wouldn’t be a violation of the law. In fact, compared to hiring a British spy get paid dirt from Russian operatives and then giving that phony info to the FBI to start an investigation, even the worst allegations against Trump are trivial.
Considering Trump has never been the target of a criminal investigation having to do with Russia and considering Hillary Clinton colluded more than even the most wild allegations against Trump, I think it’s time to stop beating this dead horse and move on.
