Dems were hoping that people might pay attention, and realize some things about the "Meuller Report", since it was so long, and few read it. :::sigh::::

I didn't read the whole thing.

Let's face it, it was a slog!

The Mueller 'extravaganza' turned out to be a great big Nothingburger. If Mr. Mueller had taken MY advice he'd not have shown up and he would have been on a slow boat to China with Wifey.  Alas He paid me no heed.

Psst!  Look for copies of Mr. Mueller's 458+ "Report" on the Bargain table in your local bookstore OR in garbage cans.

Do I suspect a slight bias in your thinking here?

Perhaps.  While I'm not a Trump supporter I AM an objective thinker and from my observations the entire Russiagate issue was a gigantic Nothingburger.

Disagree that it was all a "nothingburger".

The Russians definitely interfered with the election, but not in a cloak and dagger conspiracy way.

They just trolled Facebook mostly, and riled up the masses to sow division (I just had to Google: is it sew or sow?).

A divided and chaotic America retreats from any further conflict, because they are too consumed with their own squabbling.

A broken America is in no position to fix anything, so that is great for Russia and China.

It's 'sew'.  sOw is to plant seeds...or "he's sowing his wild oats'.

We will continue to disagree about Russiagate.  The entire drama was, is and will continue to  be part and parcel of international politics for All involved.

The genuine-looking memes were created by Russian trolls with a deep understanding of American culture. The sophisticated campaigns targeted social media users identified as pro-gun or ex-military.
The posts were often aimed at religious Facebook users, and explicitly attacked Hillary Clinton. Image result for election memes created by russia.

You're so right!

They did it by producing memes like these!

Boy was I wrong to doubt you!

I know how you feel ... or did know how you feel.

Until Jenifer showed me differently and persuaded me that the Russians were experts at propaganda and had been enormously influential over Trump just as they were over communism during the Cold War.
