"Mr. Trump didn't collude with Russia, but he did defeat Mrs. Clinton. ... Many in the media view that as sufficient to establish his guilt." —Sean Davis

Political Editors · Mar. 27, 2019

For the record: “Mr. Trump didn’t collude with Russia, but he did defeat Mrs. Clinton. From their behavior it is evident that many in the media view that as sufficient to establish his guilt.” —Sean Davis

Friendly fire: “The Russia collusion hoax was a disgraceful fake news witch-hunt that shames all of Trump’s deranged enemies in the media, the FBI and Hollywood and has probably ensured their worst nightmare — his re-election.” —Piers Morgan

Painful confession I: “On the basis of the letter that Attorney General Barr put together, it would seem to me that that is a substantial finding there. And I think it’s good news … for the president and for his campaign.” —former Attorney General Eric Holder

Painful confession II: “I believe that the Mueller report has been done. It’s a chapter that’s closed.” —Rep. James Clyburn

Alpha Jackass: “You have a[n] attorney general who applied for the job by talking down any potential obstruction conviction or indictment who then went to a Senate confirmation and refused to recuse himself. I don’t think under those circumstances he should ever have been confirmed. But he has now done the job he applied for, which is attempt to exonerate Mr. Trump when Mr. Mueller said no exoneration was in order.” —Rep. Adam Schiff

The BIG Lie: “I’m not at all surprised that the high bar of criminal conspiracy was not met.” —former CIA Director John Brennan (“Mr. Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash.” —John Brennan in The New York Times, Aug. 2018)

Hypocrite: “I am highly confident that when all the evidence is laid bare in connection with these cases, when it is all known, when due process occurs, that I will be fully exonerated and justice will be done.” —Michael Avenatti, who said of Brett Kavanaugh’s defenders: “These old white men still don’t understand that assault victims and women deserve respect and to be heard.”

Ilhan Omar, call your office! “To be anti-Semitic is to be anti-American. It has no place in our country.” —Nancy Pelosi

And last… “If you don’t have a good-faith basis to believe a crime has been committed, you don’t have an investigation.” —Andrew McCarthy
