Laura Ingraham: The Mueller probe was not about holding a president accountable, but about destroying Trump

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6027818501001_6027817937001-vs Laura Ingraham: The Mueller probe was not about holding a president accountable, but about destroying Trump laura ingraham fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle/transcript/lauras-monologue fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion/media fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/opinion fnc f9f51616-8712-5989-8a9b-2450288a9825 article

Here are the people who are owed an apology from the Democrats, from the media and from the rabid never-Trumpers.

First, the president himself, Donald Trump. These destructive and defamatory allegations against him were based on erroneous reporting, anonymous sources, leaks and whispers, gossip. But now with the release of the Mueller report, we find that it was all false.

The Trump family is also owed an apology. Attorney General William Barr certainly deserves an apology. All of the members of the mainstream media — I have no words for their calumny, their lies and their false accusations. Are they really paid enough to say that stuff, guys? And to those who branded the prime time hosts on this network as “state news” for daring to tell the truth — not just our truth but the truth —  you owe us an apology. No wonder they were so angry on Thursday.

Finally, the American people are owed an apology. Your precious tax dollars were spent and the country’s focus diverted to investigate a president who was nnocent from the outset, based on a dossier that was fake and that was paid for by the Clinton campaign. Other networks and print media journalists tricked viewers and readers into thinking their president was a Russian stooge. It was all false.This was pure and simple, an effort to undermine the results of a presidential election and manipulate public opinion.

Every effort should be made to investigate the origins and motivations of this Mueller investigation. Here are my takeaways from the Mueller report and a few things that you need to keep in mind.

No. 1: The president and his team went above and beyond in their transparency in dealing with the special counsel’s office. This openness in and of itself cuts against any suggestions you might be hearing on the other cable channels about obstruction of justice.

My friends, if Trump wanted to obstruct justice, he wouldn’t have waived executive privilege. Now if you don’t know what that is, it’s a doctrine which would have shielded much of the president’s internal communications from investigators and from the public — but he didn’t do that.

In fact, I would argue — remember, I was a former criminal defense lawyer myself, clerk of the court — I would argue that the president’s team may have gone overboard in giving Mueller too much information. But anyway, this demonstrates the president’s supreme confidence in his own innocence from the very beginning.

Trump had nothing to hide. And by the way, the transparency even extended to the release of the report itself. Remember, the American people are getting much more that is required by law. And Bill Barr, he didn’t have to do the synopsis of the report; he didn’t have to answer press questions. He didn’t even have to release the report to the public or to Congress. His only obligation was to report his findings to Congress. That’s it.

No. 2: The media coverage of this Russian collusion coordination conspiracy story was an epic failure from beginning to well, right about now. Now, remember the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016? The media reports were all false.

It turns out that Mueller found there was no evidence that President Trump had any advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting or was involved in it anyway. Now, they also did not find, by the way, that Donald Trump Jr. or any participants in the meeting violated any law.

Instead, the report said, “the government does not have strong evidence of surreptitious behavior or efforts at concealment at the term of the June 9th meeting.” Well, the story turned out to be a complete and total farce and dud.

Democrats plan to relitigate the entire drama, one way or another. They’re going to try to do it from now until 2020. But what they should be investigating is how this farce began and who was responsible, what their motives were

And then there’s, Carter Page, who worked for the Trump campaign as a foreign policy adviser — at least his name was on an advisory list for eight months.The FBI though got a FISA warrant to surveil Page, citing that fake dossier funded by Trump’s opponent.

But in the end, Mueller writes on Page 95 that his team did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. Remember, there were four FISA warrants, all of them incomplete. Another abuse of power by the Obama FBI and the rest of the Deep State.

No. 3: For all of that, the Mueller report is really kind of just an invitation, when you read it, especially toward the end, for the House of Representatives to run the ball to the impeachment goal line. The resistant media and some left-wing bibs are now hanging their impeachment hopes, now that there is no collusion, on the fact that Mueller did not specifically exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice.

After the Mueller report’s release, they were grasping at more straws and making a lot of Trump’s reaction to the appointment of the special counsel when he said,” Oh my God, this is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m f—–.” The press claimed that was the reaction of a guilty man.

But when Trump said it was the end of his presidency, it was because he believed he was a man unfairly accused. And rightly, he was enraged over the fact that his entire agenda would be stymied and his presidency mired in years of investigation. He understood that from the very beginning. I don’t blame him for being that mad. It certainly isn’t any evidence of an intent to obstruct. Anyone who says differently should either have his law license revoked or frankly not be commenting on these matters on television. Go do something else.

But the left is sitting and claiming that Mueller’s findings convict Trump of obstruction, even though Mueller stated that he could not draw such a conclusion. Here’s what he says on Page 8 of Volume 2: “Unlike cases in which is a subject engages in obstruction of justice to cover up a crime, the evidence we obtained did not establish that the president was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference. Although the obstruction statutes do not require proof of such a crime, the absence of the that evidence affects the analysis of the President’s intent and requires consideration of other possible motives for his conduct, judgments about the nature of the President’s motives during each phase would be informed by the totality of the evidence.”

And Barr and the legal team at DOJ did examine the totality of evidence and even used Mueller’s legal framework to analyze his findings on obstruction. After two years and $30 million in taxpayer money, the Democrats will not accept the Justice Department’s findings, nor Barr’s findings.

And they plan to relitigate the entire drama, one way or another. They’re going to try to do it from now until 2020. But what they should be investigating is how this farce began and who was responsible, what their motives were. The surveillance of innocent Americans. The deception in the FISA court applications.The illegal leaking of government documents and information.

The entire Mueller probe was never about holding a president accountable. The purpose was to destroy Trump and his agenda in order to regain political power.

Australian man who was wrongfully convicted of murder dies in Los Angeles hit-and-run accident

An Australian man who served 12 years in jail for a murder he did not commit died in a hit-and-run accident in Los Angeles on Thursday at the age of 56, The West Australian reported.

Mallard was walking across the street around 1:30 a.m. when a driver struck him and failed to stop, LAPD told The West Australian. A witness attempted to administer CPR, but Mallard died at the scene. The British-born Australian was on vacation in the U.S. from his home in the United Kingdom when he passed.

FLORIDA DRIVER CRITICALLY INJURED IN SHOCKING HIT-AND-RUN ROLLOVER CRASH

Mallard was sentenced to life in prison in 1995 for murdering Pamela Lawrence in her Mosman Park jewelry store on May 23, 1994, WA Today reported. The High Court of Australia exonerated Mallard in 2006 after discovering prosecutors withheld information from the defense team.

“It’s just fortunate that he got to spend 13 years of freedom after so much time wrongfully imprisoned,” Attorney-General John Quigley who fought for Mallard’s freedom told The Western Australian. The Australian state government paid Mallard a $2 million settlement in 2009 for his wrongful conviction.

Police conducted two separate investigations into the cold case in 2006 and found new evidence to charge a different man, Simon Rochford, in the murder. Rochford, who had been found guilty of murdering his girlfriend Brigitta Dickens, committed suicide in Albany Prison before prosecutors could try the case. Mallard was finally eliminated as a suspect.

Western Australian police notified Mallard’s family of his death and offered condolences during this difficult time, a spokesperson for the department said.

Police save family aboard flaming motorcycle

A motorcyclist and his family were saved from a potentially disastrous situation as they cruised down the highway oblivious that the bike they were on was in flames.

Video captured the moment a police cruiser pulled alongside the motorcycle, on which a father, mother and small child were riding, and started yelling at them to pull over and get off.

The incident occurred on an expressway in Utter Pradesh, India, according to SWNS.

Fire can be seen coming out from the bottom of the bike just behind the feet of the woman, who was wearing a loose-fitting saree and open shoes.

“The fire could have spread further leading the engines to explode or the saree of the woman could have caught the fire leading to a serious accident,” police said.

After safely coming to a stop and moving his family away from the vehicle, the rider and police were able to douse the flames.

“I didn’t know about the fire as it was underneath and it was a busy highway,” the rider said.

The damage was apparently not too bad, however, as the police then warned him to be careful and the family got back on to continue their trip.

Tucker Carlson: The Russia investigation didn’t destroy Trump, but damaged our country

So, after two long years, here we are. It’s hard to believe that any of it actually happened. Looking back, it was two years of unremitting, never diminishing hysteria about Russia. It was a continuous wave of panic and superstition over unseen Slovak interference, all stoked by the very people we’re told are the most rational in our society.

For two years, our capital city became a kind of massive CNN panel, a living monument to ignorance and dishonesty, where the loudest and the dumbest invariably got the most attention. We just lived through two full years of that — screaming, threatening, surveillance, character assassination, loyalty tests, wild allegations of treason and spying and betrayal from officeholders. Innocent people found themselves afraid to go to dinner, scared to send text messages or talk on the phone.

For two years, we lived in an all-pervasive cult of personality. Our leaders worshipped a 74-year-old federal prosecutor who almost never spoke in public. He alone was good, they told us; only they could interpret his will. It was all thoroughly bizarre — demented really — though nobody said so at the time. They were too afraid.

It seems like a dream now, which actually it was. None of it was real. Nobody colluded with Vladimir Putin. Nobody changed vote totals or met secretly in Prague or had a pee tape, whatever that is. There was never a Russia conspiracy.

Hillary Clinton wasn’t robbed of her rightful position by Julian Assange or Roger Stone or anyone else. Hillary lost the election because she was an entitled boor who didn’t run on anything. In the end, that’s what Robert Mueller proved.

The news anchors couldn’t handle that. They couldn’t handle that conclusion. It was too far from what they promised their audiences for so long. They were too invested in the lies. When the Mueller report arrived in Congress Thursday morning, they found themselves reduced to huffing and sputtering. They couldn’t admit what was in the report. Well, they told us, “Robert Mueller didn’t exonerate President Trump.” Okay, I mean, that may be true, but only theologically. Mueller doesn’t have the power to absolve sin, only God can.

But in every other sense, Mueller’s report was exculpatory. If dozens of federal prosecutors spent two years trying to charge you with a crime and then found they couldn’t, it would mean there wasn’t any real evidence that you did it. And that’s what happened here.

You may not like Donald Trump, but that’s what we just learned from the Mueller report. You would have to be a mindless partisan to deny it. And a lot of news anchors turn out to be mindless partisans. When the facts contravene the interests of their party, they deny the facts, then they attack anyone who persists in stating the obvious out loud.

So suddenly the very same people who lied to you for two years about Russia are demanding that under no circumstances are you allowed to believe anything that the Attorney General Bill Barr might say. Sure, Barr may look like a conventional Republican. He was a Jeb Bush donor and everything, and he does appear to be a close personal friend of Robert Mueller’s. But that’s why he’s so tricky. It’s all a ruse. In fact, Barr is Putin’s stooge, like all the rest, the people of cable television said.

So it was an inside job. That’s the reigning assumption in Washington. Somehow, the attorney general is preventing Robert Mueller from concluding that Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin and from telling the rest of us about it. How was Barr doing that? Well, it’s not clear how he is doing that, but they are no less certain that he is doing that.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP.

Michelle Goldberg of the New York Times announced that Barr’s press comments Thursday morning marked America’s transformation into an “authoritarian junta.” Her colleague at Time, Maggie Haberman, suggested that Trump might be a Nazi because the White House played a song from “The Sound of Music,” which by the way is an anti-Nazi musical. But it’s still Germanic sounding and therefore suspicious.

These are hysterical children. They should not be in journalism, but they are. In fact, they run journalism and they have no plans on giving up their power. The Mueller report is probably the single most humiliating thing that has ever happened to the White House press corps in the history of this country.

So how did reporters in Washington respond when it finally came out? Well, they did what they do best. They celebrated themselves. Over on CNN, former Obama official, now posing as a reporter, Jim Sciutto, bragged that the Mueller report had “debunked all of Donald Trump’s unfair attacks on the media.” At Jeff Bezos’ newspaper, a guy called Philip Bump was telling us that “The vast amount of reporting on Russia was accurate.”

Even they don’t really believe that. They know they lied. BuzzFeed claimed its reporters had seen personally with their own eyes evidence that Michael Cohen had been instructed by Donald Trump himself to perjure himself. This was going to be grounds for impeachment. The editor of BuzzFeed defended that story even after the Mueller investigation took the unusual step of publicly saying it wasn’t true. BuzzFeed went all-in and they defended it. They’d seen it with their own eyes. He told us that on this set, on this show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and now there’s no question about it. It’s over. It’s done. It was a lie. That and so much more — all lies.

Mueller’s investigation ended critical momentum from the 2016 election almost immediately. It’s the momentum that every incoming president uses to get your program enacted, to make good on the promises you just made to voters. Trump didn’t have that, thanks to Russia.

So what happens now that we know those were lies? What do we do with John Brennan and James Clapper? The two of them used to run our most powerful intelligence agencies. For the past couple of years, they’ve gotten a lot richer than they’ve ever been from yapping about Russia on television. The only problem — all lies.

Do Clapper and Brennan get to keep their cable television contracts? Probably. In decadent societies, the guilty aren’t punished, only the unpopular are punished. Over on the other channels, they’re still talking about Trump, of course. They’re not talking about themselves or their failures. The line they’re quoting most is from today’s report.

It was apparently Trump’s response when he first learned there was going to be a special counsel investigation into Russia. “Oh God,” he said, “This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m effed.”

Well, as it turns out, Trump was wrong on the specifics. He didn’t get indicted. Mueller didn’t drive him from office. It wasn’t the end of his presidency, strictly speaking. But as usual, Trump’s instincts were clearer. In fact, they were dead-on. In the ways that matter most, the Russia hoax did end his presidency, in some sense. It’s certainly sabotaged it.

Mueller’s investigation ended critical momentum from the 2016 election almost immediately. It’s the momentum that every incoming president uses to get your program enacted, to make good on the promises you just made to voters. Trump didn’t have that, thanks to Russia.

Lawmakers, including a shamefully large number of Republicans who we really should name (but we’re out of time but we will at some point) were all much happier to talk about Russia than about changing the status quo in Washington — something they were benefiting from, but which Trump ran against.

And so they did talk about Russia endlessly. The result? An election that should have realigned our political process and changed this country had almost no effect. Two years later, virtually nothing has changed. Millions are still flooding over our border from the third world. They’re encouraged by an army of nonprofits that instruct them to subvert and mock our laws.

The opioid epidemic rages on as horrifying and horrible and destructive as ever. Suicides are up. Our troops are still bogged down in Syria and Afghanistan and many other places. Goldman Sachs still controls our economy. Tech companies are still spying on you, crushing your freedom of speech. You can still have your life ruined for supporting the wrong candidate in public or for believing there are two genders.

White has career-high 36 points, Spurs beat Nuggets 118-108

Westlake Legal Group white-has-career-high-36-points-spurs-beat-nuggets-118-108 White has career-high 36 points, Spurs beat Nuggets 118-108 fox-news/sports/nba/san-antonio-spurs fox-news/sports/nba/denver-nuggets fox-news/sports/nba-playoffs fox-news/sports/nba fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 7619150a-09d6-5178-ba5b-6cf025ec0e76

San Antonio point guard Derrick White was screaming, flexing and stomping around the court after almost every basket against Denver.

It was completely out of character for White, but the mild-mannered point guard has never been in this situation before.

White had a career-high 36 points and the Spurs beat the Nuggets 118-108 on Thursday night, withstanding a first-half lapse to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series.

“I just had a chip on my shoulder,” White said. “This is the way I’ve played since I was young. Just try to go out there, compete and have fun.”

Nikola Jokic had 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for Denver.

Game 4 is Saturday in San Antonio, where the Spurs are 3-0 against the Nuggets this season.

White attacked Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray from the opening tip after being on the receiving end of Murray’s career outing Tuesday night. Murray had only six points, a game after scoring 21 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter to help Denver overcome a 19-point deficit to even the series.

“There is no doubt in my mind that Derrick White, the last couple of days, has been reminded about Jamal Murray’s fourth-quarter performance,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “Derrick White came out like he hadn’t eaten in two days. He came out hungry, he came out (ticked) off and he sent a very loud and clear message. I’m anxious to see our guys, how do we respond to that.”

White set his career high after being fouled by Paul Millsap on a driving layup that bounced off the side of the rim, hit the backboard and fell in to give the Spurs a 99-89 lead with 8:52 remaining. White added five rebounds, five assists and three steals while shooting 12 for 17. The point guard matched his overall career high with 26 points in the first half.

DeMar DeRozan took over after that, scoring 21 of his 25 points in the second half. LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Rudy Gay had 11 points and 10 rebounds.

The Spurs finished with 62 points in the paint and had a 45-37 rebound advantage.

“They are doing a good job of attacking the paint,” Jokic said. “They were living in our paint. I think it’s not just smalls, it’s our bigs, too. I think we all need to be more disciplined and more focused.”

White had 10 points in the opening quarter while primarily being defended by Murray.

“He was obviously spectacular,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “I don’t know what else to say. At both ends of the floor.”

Denver’s second unit dominated, turning a 31-22 deficit after the first quarter into a 38-31 advantage early in the second quarter. The Nuggets opened the second quarter shooting 7 for 8, including a pair of 3-pointers by Malik Beasley. San Antonio’s first points came on Jakob Poeltl’s two free throws with 8:41 left.

Beasley finished with 20 points, and Gary Harris added 12 points.

Harris stole the ball from Gay at midcourt and then calmly drained a 3-pointer before the Spurs’ defense could set for a 50-40 lead. San Antonio then went on a 21-8 run to close the half and recapture a lead it would not relinquish.

“We got our (butts) kicked because we couldn’t guard anybody,” Malone said.

TIP-INS

Nuggets: Denver is the eighth youngest team in playoff history. . Jokic is averaging 11.7 rebounds and 9.7 assists the series. … Isaiah Thomas was eligible to play but did not. … Millsap picked up his third foul with 2:12 remaining in the first half after bumping Aldridge near the 3-pointer. Millsap threw his hands up in frustration as he exited. He finished with five fouls.

Spurs: The Spurs are 22-7 against the Nuggets in the postseason, including 13-3 at home. … White’s previous career highs were 26 points in the regular season against Brooklyn on Jan. 31 and 17 against Denver in Game 2. … Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are the only players to score more points in any half for the Spurs in the postseason than White’s 26 points in the first half.

MINDSET?

Popovich was bemused when asked what the Spurs’ mindset is after earning a split on the road.

“What’s their mindset,” Popovich asked. “I didn’t give any psychological tests today or anything. It’s their job, they are going to come play, so will the Nuggets. They are going to try to win. Nuggets are going to try to win. It’s a competitive sport, that’s the mindset. It’s not too difficult to imagine.”

EXPERIENCED

White made his first postseason start in Game 1 at Denver, but he joked that he has plenty of playoff experience.

“Everybody said I didn’t have playoff experience, but I did this in the G League,” White said. “Just kidding. But it was big for my development.”

Tucker Carlson: The Russia investigation didn’t destroy Trump, but damaged our country

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6027784630001_6027794271001-vs Tucker Carlson: The Russia investigation didn't destroy Trump, but damaged our country Tucker Carlson fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight/transcript/tuckers-monologue fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion/media fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/opinion fnc article a4782fdd-a485-54f8-bfa1-9e8c2ef1f2d2

So, after two long years, here we are. It’s hard to believe that any of it actually happened. Looking back, it was two years of unremitting, never diminishing hysteria about Russia. It was a continuous wave of panic and superstition over unseen Slovak interference, all stoked by the very people we’re told are the most rational in our society.

For two years, our capital city became a kind of massive CNN panel, a living monument to ignorance and dishonesty, where the loudest and the dumbest invariably got the most attention. We just lived through two full years of that — screaming, threatening, surveillance, character assassination, loyalty tests, wild allegations of treason and spying and betrayal from officeholders. Innocent people found themselves afraid to go to dinner, scared to send text messages or talk on the phone.

For two years, we lived in an all-pervasive cult of personality. Our leaders worshipped a 74-year-old federal prosecutor who almost never spoke in public. He alone was good, they told us; only they could interpret his will. It was all thoroughly bizarre — demented really — though nobody said so at the time. They were too afraid.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM TUCKER CARLSON.

It seems like a dream now, which actually it was. None of it was real. Nobody colluded with Vladimir Putin. Nobody changed vote totals or met secretly in Prague or had a pee tape, whatever that is. There was never a Russia conspiracy.

Hillary Clinton wasn’t robbed of her rightful position by Julian Assange or Roger Stone or anyone else. Hillary lost the election because she was an entitled boor who didn’t run on anything. In the end, that’s what Robert Mueller proved.

The news anchors couldn’t handle that. They couldn’t handle that conclusion. It was too far from what they promised their audiences for so long. They were too invested in the lies. When the Mueller report arrived in Congress Thursday morning, they found themselves reduced to huffing and sputtering. They couldn’t admit what was in the report. Well, they told us, “Robert Mueller didn’t exonerate President Trump.” Okay, I mean, that may be true, but only theologically. Mueller doesn’t have the power to absolve sin, only God can.

But in every other sense, Mueller’s report was exculpatory. If dozens of federal prosecutors spent two years trying to charge you with a crime and then found they couldn’t, it would mean there wasn’t any real evidence that you did it. And that’s what happened here.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

You may not like Donald Trump, but that’s what we just learned from the Mueller report. You would have to be a mindless partisan to deny it. And a lot of news anchors turn out to be mindless partisans. When the facts contravene the interests of their party, they deny the facts, then they attack anyone who persists in stating the obvious out loud.

So suddenly the very same people who lied to you for two years about Russia are demanding that under no circumstances are you allowed to believe anything that the Attorney General Bill Barr might say. Sure, Barr may look like a conventional Republican. He was a Jeb Bush donor and everything, and he does appear to be a close personal friend of Robert Mueller’s. But that’s why he’s so tricky. It’s all a ruse. In fact, Barr is Putin’s stooge, like all the rest, the people of cable television said.

So it was an inside job. That’s the reigning assumption in Washington. Somehow, the attorney general is preventing Robert Mueller from concluding that Donald Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin and from telling the rest of us about it. How was Barr doing that? Well, it’s not clear how he is doing that, but they are no less certain that he is doing that.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP.

Michelle Goldberg of the New York Times announced that Barr’s press comments Thursday morning marked America’s transformation into an “authoritarian junta.” Her colleague at Time, Maggie Haberman, suggested that Trump might be a Nazi because the White House played a song from “The Sound of Music,” which by the way is an anti-Nazi musical. But it’s still Germanic sounding and therefore suspicious.

These are hysterical children. They should not be in journalism, but they are. In fact, they run journalism and they have no plans on giving up their power. The Mueller report is probably the single most humiliating thing that has ever happened to the White House press corps in the history of this country.

So how did reporters in Washington respond when it finally came out? Well, they did what they do best. They celebrated themselves. Over on CNN, former Obama official, now posing as a reporter, Jim Sciutto, bragged that the Mueller report had “debunked all of Donald Trump’s unfair attacks on the media.” At Jeff Bezos’ newspaper, a guy called Philip Bump was telling us that “The vast amount of reporting on Russia was accurate.”

Even they don’t really believe that. They know they lied. BuzzFeed claimed its reporters had seen personally with their own eyes evidence that Michael Cohen had been instructed by Donald Trump himself to perjure himself. This was going to be grounds for impeachment. The editor of BuzzFeed defended that story even after the Mueller investigation took the unusual step of publicly saying it wasn’t true. BuzzFeed went all-in and they defended it. They’d seen it with their own eyes. He told us that on this set, on this show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and now there’s no question about it. It’s over. It’s done. It was a lie. That and so much more — all lies.

Mueller’s investigation ended critical momentum from the 2016 election almost immediately. It’s the momentum that every incoming president uses to get your program enacted, to make good on the promises you just made to voters. Trump didn’t have that, thanks to Russia.

So what happens now that we know those were lies? What do we do with John Brennan and James Clapper? The two of them used to run our most powerful intelligence agencies. For the past couple of years, they’ve gotten a lot richer than they’ve ever been from yapping about Russia on television. The only problem — all lies.

Do Clapper and Brennan get to keep their cable television contracts? Probably. In decadent societies, the guilty aren’t punished, only the unpopular are punished. Over on the other channels, they’re still talking about Trump, of course. They’re not talking about themselves or their failures. The line they’re quoting most is from today’s report.

It was apparently Trump’s response when he first learned there was going to be a special counsel investigation into Russia. “Oh God,” he said, “This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m effed.”

Well, as it turns out, Trump was wrong on the specifics. He didn’t get indicted. Mueller didn’t drive him from office. It wasn’t the end of his presidency, strictly speaking. But as usual, Trump’s instincts were clearer. In fact, they were dead-on. In the ways that matter most, the Russia hoax did end his presidency, in some sense. It’s certainly sabotaged it.

Mueller’s investigation ended critical momentum from the 2016 election almost immediately. It’s the momentum that every incoming president uses to get your program enacted, to make good on the promises you just made to voters. Trump didn’t have that, thanks to Russia.

Lawmakers, including a shamefully large number of Republicans who we really should name (but we’re out of time but we will at some point) were all much happier to talk about Russia than about changing the status quo in Washington — something they were benefiting from, but which Trump ran against.

And so they did talk about Russia endlessly. The result? An election that should have realigned our political process and changed this country had almost no effect. Two years later, virtually nothing has changed. Millions are still flooding over our border from the third world. They’re encouraged by an army of nonprofits that instruct them to subvert and mock our laws.

The opioid epidemic rages on as horrifying and horrible and destructive as ever. Suicides are up. Our troops are still bogged down in Syria and Afghanistan and many other places. Goldman Sachs still controls our economy. Tech companies are still spying on you, crushing your freedom of speech. You can still have your life ruined for supporting the wrong candidate in public or for believing there are two genders.

Most ominous of all and most often ignored: Americans are dying younger and having fewer children. None of this was ever resolved, none of it was ever talked about. The Russia investigation didn’t destroy Trump, but it did a lot to destroy this country.

A tiny Japanese baby who weighed just 258 grams (9 ounces) when he was born five months ago is going home from the hospital.

Ryusuke Sekino was shown on Japanese TV on Friday sitting in his mother’s arms, looking somberly around at media cameras.

His mother told reporters she was worried and cried a lot at first because he was so fragile and had transparent skin. She said she now is able to breastfeed him and is looking forward to taking him home on Saturday and giving him a bath.

The University of Iowa keeps a Tiniest Babies Registry, which shows the previous smallest surviving boy weighed 268 grams (9.5 ounces) when he was born last year in Japan. A German girl born in 2015 weighed 252 grams (8.9 ounces).

Simmons scores 31 points, 76ers beat Nets without Embiid

Westlake Legal Group simmons-scores-31-points-76ers-beat-nets-without-embiid Simmons scores 31 points, 76ers beat Nets without Embiid fox-news/sports/nba/philadelphia-76ers fox-news/sports/nba/brooklyn-nets fox-news/sports/nba-playoffs fox-news/sports/nba fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 4c423665-707b-55ee-9550-e27ef340c6a3

Joel Embiid took off his warmup gear and changed into street clothes, his left knee feeling too sore to play.

Even with the All-Star center sitting down, the Philadelphia 76ers were flying high in Game 3.

Ben Simmons scored a career playoff-high 31 points, Tobias Harris added 29 points and 16 rebounds and the 76ers shook off the absence of their leading scorer to beat the Brooklyn Nets 131-115 on Thursday night for a 2-1 lead in the first-round series.

The 76ers relied on Simmons slashing to the basket, and Harris and JJ Redick shooting from the perimeter.

“We have the pieces to get games, to complete games and I think everybody in the organization knows that,” Simmons said.

Simmons was 11 for 13 from the field, repeatedly getting to the rim even with the Nets sagging well off him in hopes he would shoot a jumper. He added nine assists and eventually quieted a crowd that loudly booed him every time he touched the ball early.

Harris had his playoff highs in both points and rebounds, and was 6 for 6 from 3-point range. Redick was 5 of 9 behind the arc and finished with 26 points.

“Listen, I think their big players came to play,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “Ben had a great game, I thought JJ was great, Tobias also hit some big 3s.”

Embiid warmed up before the game but the 76ers announced shortly before the start that the All-Star center wouldn’t be available because of a sore left knee. Greg Monroe started in his place and had nine points and 13 rebounds.

“Just came in, obviously with Joel down that’s a big scoring loss that we had there,” Harris said. “So just had to be aggressive from the start.”

D’Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert each scored 26 points for the Nets, who host Game 4 on Saturday afternoon. They have dropped the last two games after surprising the No. 3 seed in the opener in Philadelphia.

Energized by a lively Brooklyn crowd seeing playoff basketball for the first time since 2015 and perhaps by the absence of Embiid, who averaged 22.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in the first two games, the Nets started well but then stalled. They went about 4 1/2 minutes without a basket and Philadelphia took advantage to lead 32-24 after one.

“When, arguably, their best player sits out, you have to take advantage of that and we just couldn’t perform on it,” Nets center Jarrett Allen said.

The lead quickly went into double digits in the second before LeVert got going. He scored six straight points and had Brooklyn’s first 14 of the period to tie it at 38. The 76ers regained control and opened an 11-point lead with about 2 1/2 minutes remaining before halftime, but LeVert had another burst to cut Philadelphia’s lead to 65-59 at the break. He finished with 19 points in the period.

Redick hit a pair of 3-pointers sandwiched around Harris’ three-point play, pushing it to 81-67, and another 3 by Redick had the Sixers leading 97-81 with 1:16 left in the third. But a four-point play by Spencer Dinwiddie highlighted Brooklyn’s run of nine straight points to end the period and trim it to 97-90.

The Nets cut it to six in the fourth on Russell’s 3-pointer, but the 76ers soon pulled away again.

It was another poor defensive effort by the Nets, who allowed just 102 points in Game 1 but an average of 138 in the last two games.

“We didn’t do a good enough job of getting stops,” guard Joe Harris said. “You can’t have three guys go for 30 and expect to win games.”

Jimmy Butler scored 16 points for the 76ers and backup big man Boban Marjanovic finished with 14 points and eight rebounds.

TIP-INS

76ers: Simmons was 5 for 5 on free throws when the Nets fouled him intentionally with 3:38 remaining. He missed both, but hit two on the next possession and finished 9 for 11. … Monroe didn’t even make his Sixers debut until April 6.

Nets: Brooklyn was 8 for 39 (20.5 from 3-point range. Joe Harris, who led the league in 3-pointer percentage, missed all four of his attempts. … LeVert’s 19 points were the most he scored in any quarter of his career. … The Nets had won their last three Game 3s.
