The Trump/Barr "Justice" Department conducted an honest investigation because we still have an independent judiciary.* Once the Trumpists feel they have enough federal judgeships in their hands, investigation conclusions will come straight from Trump's mouth to Barr's pen, with no need for pesky and messy things like actual investigating.


*I'm sure there are plenty of investigators and other employees of the Justice Department and other government departments who are diligent civil servants and would conduct their work honestly if left to their own devices, but (1) the Trumpists have been actively trying to drive them out of office with their "deep state" bullshit, and (2) civil servants ultimately have to report to political appointees at the top of the bureaus and departments.

And yet at his Ohio rally the other night, Individual 1 said that Crooked Hillary should be locked up.

He wants her locked up because she's a political enemy. And that the kind of country Trump and his rabble of moronic supporters want.

It wouldn’t at all surprise me if Trump still thinks of the Clintons as his friends, that he can encourage a rally to shout “Lock her up!” but that’s just “for show” and there shouldn’t be any problem having a nice civilized lunch with Bill & Hill and he’d be shocked, shocked! that they would decline; what did he ever do to them?

Trump is probably very adept at compartmentalizing, able to commit completely to contradictory ideas based on whatever the needs of the moment are. If someone else has a problem with this behavior, they’re just being unfair to him.
