Ok, I know this will probably be a pain in the a** for whoever has to do this but I think for my own sake, and the sake of others, it would be great if someone could give a detailed rundown of the Russia Investigation so far. There seems to be a lot of misinformation out there. And almost every other thread is about how they either found the nail in Trump's coffin or more evidence on why this investigation is a witch-hunt. And I am personally struggling to get any help from the MSM. MSNBC/CNN aren't really covering the corruption within the FBI (Rosenstein, Strzok, Ohr, McCabe) and FOX isn't really covering possible collusion and financial ties between Trump and his aides (Kushner, Manafort. I am finding it very hard to follow along and distinguish between fact and fiction.

So ... is there anyone with a good understanding of this investigation and the many turns it has taken explain these questions?

1. What have they discovered?
2. Any evidence so far of collusion or obstruction of justice?
3. The anti-Trumpers in the FBI? (text messages, emails, Comey)
4. The Dossier?
5. How does this investigation connect back to the DNC and Clinton? (Fusion GPS)
6. In your opinion, is this investigation legitimate or not?
7. Will it be resolved before the mid-terms?

Nobody outside of Mueller's team really knows much of anything. Anybody on the internet or any talking head you see on CNN or Fox News is just speculating and throwing in their own opinion.

From what we know so far, Mueller and his team haven't found much of anything. Until that changes, I myself believe that Mueller has reached a dead end and is just dragging this out to try and influence the 2018 mid-terms. However, if I am wrong and Mueller does find evidence of wrong-doing that reaches the POTUS, I will support any action that is taken against the president.

I personally have zero tolerance for crooked gov't officials, which is why I was "anyone but Hillary." She's as crooked as them come. But if Mueller can actually prove, beyond a doubt, that Trump was aware of Russian collusion with his campaign, I fully support his impeachment.

4 indictments and 2 guilty pleas.
More to come.
Have patience, more information to come. The founders of Fusion GPS have a op-ed in the NYT which tells a lot, stuff they found out. Mueller has even more resources and will have time to put it together.

IIRC, two of the partners refused to identify their funder and initially they also refused to identify the British investigator. After he was identified the reason for the refusal vanished.. Another partner testified for 10 hours after an agreement was reached about revealing sources. They all did talk to the committee.

Senator Grassely indicated if Fusion had no objection, the entire testimony would be released.

It's a takedown attempt, his team is stacked with Hillary supporting trump hating prosecutors. The media wants trump to fire mueller so they can begin impeachment. They don't want to look at the dossier and want us to forget about it. They cannot find collusion but will keep digging until they can get Dems to control congress to impeach. Trump just has to keep on running the country and is at the mercy of the corrupt investigation

Detailed Rundown.
  • Hillary faces stunning electoral loss.
  • Also throws egg all over faces of MSM pundits who said for close to 2 years that Hillary would be next President and that Trump had no chance. '
  • Snowflake supporters cry, moan, put on pussyhats and protest violently.
  • Leftists cook up multiple conspiracies about Russians causing Hillary's loss.
  • MSM parrots it as fact.
  • Huge investigation insues
  • 1 year later, not one thing proved.
The Russia Meme is Dead.
