I disconnected yesterday and have taken some time to reflect on the impact of the #BarrLetter

Tuning back in and I see some overcorrection from the media, a demand for answers on the left, some gloating on the right, and dumb 2020 takes all around

Here are my thoughts

1) Barr (and Rosenstein) need to testify about their obstruction decision and we must see the full report.

Mueller found evidence of obstruction but left it up to Barr to decide what to do. Barr was appointed after writing a letter against the obstruction case. We need answers.
2) Mueller should testify as well.

Not finding a "tacit agreement" to conspire does not void all the open coordination we saw in public view.

We know the Trump camp knew about Russia's efforts to help them via Don Jr.'s emails.

We need details.

3) The media is overcorrecting.

They're running with the idea they need to reflect on their collusion coverage. They don't. Those reports were accurate and never alleged a "conspiracy"

They need to keep in mind this equally undermines the “deep state” narrative on the right.
4) People saying this is bad for the Dems in 2020 have not been paying attention.

The midterms and polling show voters care about the issues significantly more than this. And Democrats win on the issues. Barr's letter makes Trump and the GOP no less regressive on policy.
5) Another thing to keep in mind about 2020 is the fact Trump voters are motivated by fear, anger, and grievance - not a success.

Trump no longer has his "deep state" fight. The more Trump has to fight against, the better he'll do in 2020. Trump now has one less fight.
6) Keep your head up.

You were always going to be your own saviors.

Pay attention to the other corruption probes but do it without attachment.

It all comes down to your vote and organizing ahead of 2020.

Trump is no less corrupt, indecent, or incompetent after this.
