President Trump is officially on the warpath.
After literally years of talk about the Mueller report, the document has come and gone. Its conclusions were a resounding win for this President, and, in the minds of many Americans, the democrats are again acting like sore losers.
This accusation is particularly pointed given their behavior back in November of 2016.
Trump is now pushing forward with his investigation of the investigators, aimed at getting to the bottom of why and how the entire debacle began.
The latest reporting from the Washington Post puts one of the 2020 democrats squarely in the midst of it.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark. Part of the efforts eventually involved unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited charges made by the Christopher Steele dossier that Trump campaign officials were colluding with Russia.
The move could have major implications as 2020 rolls around.
Biden’s largely unreported role in the initial Obama administration meetings on the matter of Russian interference could spark further questions now that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.
Biden is currently the far-and-away frontrunner of the crowded 2020 democratic field, besting his closest opponent Bernie Sanders by double digits in the latest polling.
