If we look at this all as social groups interacting, rather than just politics, it becomes very clear where the behavior falls. When adherence to belief becomes paramount to what we actually do, it falls squarely into religious fervor.

I didn't expect much from this investigation as far as collusion is concerned. I have several threads going back over a year stating that.
But I also didn't expect for some sort of come to Jesus line started from those who did think there was collusion to apologize to ATS for being wrong. How often does that happen?
Honestly I feel most people don't look for the truth on both sides, they look for how to "prove" their "truths". They construct their narrative and do whatever it takes to keep it alive.
seems to support Trump is doing something with Russia

I'm watching MSNBC and some talking head just suggested the fact that Barr issued a statement within 48 hrs indicated they didn't take enough time to think about obstruction.
And another says as I type, "who says the AG, presidential appointee, gets to make the decision to not prosecute. It will be up to Congress!"
I have heard "other investigations" about 70 times in less than ten minutes. Must be the new talking point from the DNC.
GOP said the similar things about lynch/Comey during the Clinton investigation.

We wont lose sight of the reasons for the election.
The reason was Trump was seen as a possible outsider, and so the establishment, led by Obama administrations intel community, decided they must take him down by any means necessary.
If it was about foriegn influence, Ukrainian collusion with the DNC would have been investigated. Feinstein who actually employed a Chinese spy would have be treated at least as harshly as trump, Obama would not have laughed off election interference claims during his demonstration , and so forth.
No matter how many hacks russia, china, or anyone else commits against the US, it pales it comparison to the Democratic establishment party under Obamas admin weaponizing the intel community to go after opponents.

Biggest problem is how a bunch of the public evidence seems to support Trump is doing something with Russia and Barr's summary doesnt really answer anything other then "NO COLLUSION!" Hopefully the full report explains those oddities because it would go a long way to getting this to everyone still waiting for answers before they jump into this mess discussing things.
