Remember how for two years we were assured that Robert Mueller was a staunch, unbiased, incorruptible investigator who put country over party? Well, that’s what The Resistance kept telling us, at least until Mueller released his report finding no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Now that Attorney General William Barr has tapped federal prosecutor John Durham to assist with the investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion hoax, CNN is engaging in some concern trolling: is Durham jeopardizing his reputation as “apolitical” by agreeing to assist Barr?

Oh no, maybe he should reconsider.

It’s thoughtful that CNN’s concerned for Durham’s reputation, but we’re confident he can handle it.
