With all the noise around Russia, it’s seriously hard to know up from down and real from fake. Luckily there are people out there like Byron York and Sharyl Attkisson who take the time to break it all down, point by point, so even someone like this Twitchy editor can keep up.
For example, this conversation started with a ‘question’ from Byron York … and a good question at that.
Question: If, say, Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson worked with Kremlin-linked Russians like, say, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to lobby for elimination of US sanctions, might that be part of Mueller's push to investigate/prosecute possible FARA violations?

Things that make you go hrm.
You know what else makes us go hrm? When Sharyl lays out the Clinton campaign’s possible ties ultimately to Russia …
Or if, say, the Ukrainians worked through the DNC? Or if, say, the Clinton campaign hired a foreign ex-spy to work with Fusion GPS, who worked with Kremlin-linked Russians to find political oppo research dirt on her opponent to give to the FBI to impact the US election? Naw. https://t.co/86RB2NqGHp

@ByronYork If Clinton had won, do either of you think an investigation is opened into this? Knowledge of Fusion, Ukraine, Russia, FISA Etc is all known bc of the investigation, right? In immediate post Hillary win, would their be any investigation into foreign meddling?

Not that we’re an expert at all, but honestly we doubt the Obama administration and Hillary’s campaign would have been so blatant with any of this if they thought for one moment she would lose.
Nope, if Satan in a bad pantsuit had won we’d hear nothing about any of this and if Trump brought it up the Left would just call him a sore loser.
If only we had an investigation, call it an “independent council”, to look in to the glaring ties between the Clinton’s the dnc and the Russian government.

These questions have baffled me from the beginning. If Mueller can branch off to investigate Manifort, what’s stopping investigation into the equally relevant DNC/Clinton connection? I suspect Clintons have dangerous dirt on most everyone involved. Kryptonite

Ding ding ding.
