    LOL!: IG found Steele to be credible

    I wonder if we should put all the FISA truthers here on suicide watch.

    Trump dossier author Steele gets 16-hour DOJ grilling - POLITICO
    Christopher Steele, the former British spy behind the infamous ‚€œdossier‚€Ě on President Donald Trump‚€™s ties to Russia, was interviewed for 16 hours in June by the Justice Department‚€™s internal watchdog, according to two people familiar with the matter.
    The interview was contentious at first, the sources added, but investigators ultimately found Steele‚€™s testimony credible and even surprising. The takeaway has irked some U.S. officials interviewed as part of the probe ‚€” they argue that it shouldn‚€™t have taken a foreign national to convince the inspector general that the FBI acted properly in 2016. Steele‚€™s American lawyer was present for the conversation.


    But the extensive interview with Steele, and the investigators‚€™ sense that he offered new and important information, may dampen expectations among the president‚€™s allies who‚€™ve claimed that Steele‚€™s sensational dossier was used improperly by the bureau to ‚€œspy‚€Ě on the campaign.
    Sorry, FISA truthers. The IG is not going to accuse the FBI of a political conspiracy, so get used to the idea, and prepare your stomach for another serving of crow.

    I speculated two months ago that Barr's appointment of Durham to conduct an additional review was rooted in him knowing the IG was going nowhere with the deep state theories, and my prediction is looking good.

    Of course you were right. It was only to keep the notion alive in the media and only the right-wing media seems to have bothered to try with any regularity. Even there it's mostly a sidebar. It's going nowhere.

    See red hats like a good 'revenge' story.

    One must of course, over and over again, point out that the Russia investigation was not solely based on the Steele Dossier.

    Put them on suicide watch? Why? They will only disregard this info as fake news or deep state crap. Since when did the right start actually believing in facts?

    Wait. Hold on. Trump Fan Nation has been saying that the Horowitz investigation was going to result in all of these bad people going to jail or even worse. Strzok would be hung on the village square. Comey would be hanged, drawn and quartered. McCabe was going to be bunking with some 387 pound inmate named Big Bob.

    This isn't at all what I was told to expect.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Two anonymous sources. This is the SOS the entire narrative has been built on. That is not enough to hang you hat on, unless you are in the TDS choir.
    We killed God, family, and community. Now itís killing us.
    When I sound crazy, itís because I think you are.

    Never fear.

    Conspiracy theories, and the brains that concoct them....are a lot like cockroaches.

    They do not die easily.

    This will not dissuade many (or any) Trump conspiracy theorists who subscribe to the whole fake "illegal spying on the Trump campaign" narrative.

    Remember, these are the same people who made Pizzagate....and Death Panels....and Birtherism....and Fast and Furious....and Jade Helm....and IRS-gate....into top-of-the-fold headlines and lead-stories on every news channel in the country.

    This won't die until a new fake-@ss conspiracy theory has been hatched to replace it.

    Watch and see.
