Who remembers the Russia hoax?
As soon as Trump was elected President the Democrats and Mainstream Media began to try and explain why he was elected.
They said it couldn’t be because Americans supported his policies.
It had to be because of Russia.
Of course, that fell apart. In fact, it turned out that the entire Russia hoax was nothing more than a deep state hit on Trump.
Once it became clear Trump did not collude with Russia.
Once it became clear that it was the Dems and Deep State that committed crimes the narrative changed.
The narrative became that Trump obstructed justice.
So, they made up a crime, investigated it then accused Trump of obstructing the investigation.
Once that also fell apart they accused Attorney General William Barr of covering it up and protecting Trump.
Well, now that narrative has officially fallen apart as well:
Critics had sought the memo as the “smoking gun” to show how former Attorney General Bill Barr scuttled any obstruction charges against Donald Trump. Instead, the memo showed the opposite. https://t.co/vhfvgWUHsh

The long-awaited, though partial, release of a memorandum from the Justice Department this week left many “frustrated,” as predicted by the Washington Post, in Washington. The reason is what it did not contain. Critics had sought the memo as the “smoking gun” to show how former Attorney General Bill Barr scuttled any obstruction charges against Donald Trump. Instead, the memo showed the opposite. The staff of the OLC actually found that the allegations did not meet the standard of obstruction even without any defenses or privileges related to Trump’s office.
It also undermines a key claim brought up during the first impeachment:
The memo also undermines the claims raised in the first impeachment of Donald Trump. I testified in that hearing and disagreed with my three co-witnesses (Professors Michael Gerhardt, Pamela Karlan, and Noah Feldman) who insisted that Trump had committed obstruction of justice. They were not alone. Democrats and the media paraded a letter from over 450 prosecutors who declared unequivocally that “Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.” The actual prosecutors at Main Justice found that not only would the allegations not meet the standard for obstruction of justice but that it would still be the case even if Trump was not the President of the United States. The contrast shows the danger of such gotcha letters. With thousands of professors and prosecutors, it is not particularly difficult to get hundreds of signatories to support one side or another in a controversy. The Justice Department does not prosecute by plebiscite and this is why.
Another fake narrative has fallen apart.
