On it goes ….

On it goes:

The battle over who did what with the Russians goes on and on. Everyday depending on what channel you watch it is either:

Trump and his team were corrupt, and look at what they did and are hiding.
OR
Wait, the heads of the investigation were Clinton fans, and look at what they did.

This morning we have the Schiff tapes where he tried to get information (and pictures) from Russians on Donald Trump. The same Schiff who called Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting to get dirt on Hillary a crime.
Yes, he did the same thing.
But you wouldn’t know it unless you watched Fox or Fox Business. The other cable and network stations did not consider that newsworthy.

Another example is the Democratic memo that Trump has. On pro Trump stations they are saying the Democrats included information that must be redacted, and they did it to yell that Trump is covering up.

On the other cable and network stations they are accusing the White House of doing to this memo what was not done to the Republican one.

So where is truth? Most likely closer to the middle, but in the end the truth must lie on one side of the ledger and not the other.

How will we ever know?

Remember this name — Michael Horowitz.
Who is he?
He is the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general.
He has been conducting a probe of the FBI’s handling of the 2016 investigation into Hillary’s use of the private email server.
He has done it quietly and very thoroughly, and the report is expected within the next 30-60 days. It could come in March.

His investigation  already has reportedly contributed to the early resignation of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

He also uncovered the series of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that led special counsel Mueller to remove Strzok from his team.

You get the idea. So remember that name and the report coming. It may provide some truth.
