"The news that Robert Mueller, after countless hours of investigation, has found no evidence of criminal conspiracy between Donald Trump and Moscow .... [has resulted in] a serious political cost to Democrats." - @tafrank at @VanityFair vanityfair.com/news/2019/03/t…
"There was also a serious credibility cost to the press. Many news outlets, already struggling with credibility problems going into 2016, redoubled their worst traits in the name of what they thought was a higher truth."
"CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic and many other news outlets (Vanity Fair among them) have hyped the Russia stories so much that less Resistance-minded readers have started to doubt much of their work altogether."
"There was a serious policy cost .... For those of us who felt that hostilities between Washington and Moscow were already excessive when Trump took office, the past two years have seen a disastrous escalation."
"There was a serious reputational cost to the F.B.I. and our intelligence agencies. ... The fact that a rickety theory was allowed to drive so many decisions and impinge on the privacy and rights of people based on minimal grounds ... should trouble all of us."
"Anyone off-center could be next. A retracing of steps in order to understand the origins of the investigation is necessary. ... Collective reckoning is a rare thing. But it would help."
