Let me see if I get this. They had no *proof* of a crime before they started the investigation, so it was illegitimate at its origins, and any findings of criminality must be dismissed in advance. 1/9
(Of course, f you already have *proof* you don’t need an investigation! An investigation is started when one lacks proof, but has probable cause or at least a good reason to do an investigation--which the Trump-Russia investigations certainly had in spades). 2/9
This is a barefaced attempt to apply the fruit of the poison tree doctrine about legal evidence to the special counsel’s investigation of Russian interference and any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. 3/9
It’s the Devin Nunes doctrine: the investigations were politically motivated so any findings should be invalidated. 4/9
Any Trump campaign collusion with Russia, if found and established by Mueller, will then be a political finding that can be dismissed as a political hit job. Unfair! 5/9
I know this sounds really senseless, but I’m just doing my best here to articulate what must be going on in Trump’s very challenged little brain--beyond the obvious fact that what this shows more than anything is consciousness of guilt. 6/9
If he weren’t guilty, why is he trying to preemptively trash the MUELLER REPORT findings before they’re even released? He should be looking forward to it with great confidence as exonerating. 7/9
But as I’ve had reason to observe many times, everything about Trump-Russia makes sense only on the assumption that he is guilty as hell. Nothing about it makes sense without that assumption. 8/9
If you were guilty and entirely devoid of patriotism, honor, or even basic human decency, you would probably act exactly like Trump. 9/9
