    They've gone full tilt Orwell in their declaration a lack of evidence in the IG report regarding political bias proves there was political bias.

    Basically, they are contending that since the evidence didn't match what they wanted the evidence to be...................wait for it..............the evidence is unacceptable. How do you justify not believing the evidence? You claim the person who gathered it is himself politically biased. Therefore, the established criteria for factual evidence is it's awesome if you like it and it's crap if you don't.

    Then you trot out the AG, who has already transparently displayed HIS bias, to issue some dubious "yeah buts," followed by his hand picked sock puppet to say, "yeah, what he said."

    All of which fits seamlessly in to the fatuous construct Trump has been working on since day one. Namely, all truths are subjective. There's a word from literature for that, it's doublethink.

    What do you do about a phone call during which you solicit a foreign leader to help your future political campaign (illegal) while withholding military aid appropriated by Congress (illegal)? You smear some doublethink on it. After trying to hide the transcript in a secure server intended for highly classified material..........you call it "perfect." Make sense? No. Perfect!!!

    The goal here is to confuse and deflect. To get people to not recognize the objective truths. Those truths are.....

    Trump both solicited and welcomed Russia's help in the 2016 election. Uh oh, time for some doublethink. So he denied he got the help, while obstructing the investigation in to the help he got, while calling the investigators names, and falsely claiming the investigation exonerated him (it didn't). Perfect!!!!!

    He illegally solicited the help of Ukraine for his personal political purposes while illegally withholding military aid as leverage. Then he claimed he did nothing wrong while telling everyone involved not to cooperate with the investigation cuz......well.........it's inexplicable as to why witnesses with direct knowledge of his innocence would be prevented from testifying. Time for some doublethink. "I could prove this sham impeachment thing is a sham if I wanted to but I won't cuz it's a sham." Perfect!!!!!!!!!

    Confused???? For President Gantry, that's PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!

    There was a lack of evidence of political bias because nobody the IG questioned would admit to it.

    Just because you can't find the body and the suspect won't admit to the crime, doesn't mean that the murder wasn't committed.

    There is no evidence to match anything. Just hearsay, hate for trump, and emotional rants. No substance or evidence.

    During his congressional testimony yesterday IG Horowitz said he had a conversation with renown sock puppet John Dunham during which the predicate for the FBI investigation in to Trump's campaign was discussed. Dunham's position was that while a "full" investigation by the FBI was not, in his opinion, warranted a "preliminary" investigation was warranted.
    But when Billy the Bagman instructed Dunham to undercut the IG report with unprecedented commentary on Monday (timed with Billy's own statement for maximum media impact) he made no mention of the subtle distinction between a full and preliminary investigation. He simply said he disagreed with some of the IG report's conclusions. Why? Because the intent of issuing the statement was to do Barr's (and therefore Trump's) bidding by sprinkling some doublethink on the IG report.

    That's the ticket! Overwhelming evidence is no evidence. You catch on fast.

    We all need to take what Barr says on the matter with a grain of salt. When the A.G. himself consistently uses the word "spy" to describe the surveillance by his own law enforcement professionals, you know there is strong bias involved.
    If it weren't for "spy," I might consider that he is just a real stickler for detail. But no, it's pretty clear he is hunting for whatever he can to discredit the FBI's look into what in hell was going on in the Trump campaign as it related to Russian contacts.
    Barr is not a reputable spokesman. He is one of the hacks.

    I saw that testimony.

    It's very subtle ways like this that Politicians use to deceive their gullible wingtards.

    There was also a subtle distinction not being made - that the FISA warrant was just one small aspect of the investigation, not the whole investigation. We nevermind this distinction if we're attached to an Orange Ballsac, like a true Cultist would be.
