People seem to forget that this was a republican investigation, with extremely narrow focus, no access to interview Trump (and other key staff/family?), run by a republican who cleared out any left leaning members of his team, which is being summarised by a guy who got his job because of how he praised Trump and defended him (Barr). Frankly, the report from the snippets that have been sneaking out seems to be in line with reasonable expectations.
No smoking gun on collusion.
Russia did manipulate the elections.
Trump may or may not have obstructed.
Along the way the investigation has found many illegalities, some significant enough to prosecute, and some “rich man” crimes which aren’t being prosecuted. It has also spun off other investigations that are ongoing.
Some here will remember I’ve been saying for a while to stop worrying about impeachment. I don’t think there is too much here that is unexpected. I’m disappointed there isn’t more on the Trump tower meeting, but that may be in the body and not been released yet.
Correct me if I’m wrong (and I may very well be on this part), but doesn’t MSNBC aim to be the Fox news of the left? i.e. it is unabashedly not unbiased, and not part of the MSM? It would be hardly surprising if they haven’t focused on this.
I’m not really sure why you assume those other topics would have come up regardless. They didn’t come up under Obama either (well, the minimum wage did). When Republicans controlled all three branches it is hardly surprising focus has been on their legislative, executive and investigations they have done, tried to do, or started. For example, health care reform got a huge amount of focus while the Repubs tried to change it. Its then died a quick death in the general discussion outside the Dem primaries, because everybody knows nothing will be done about it with a split control.
