It's not meant to end. The Trump-Russia collusion myth is meant to be continuous. It’s why President Trump is being impeached in an offshoot of this meth-addled conspiracy theory. The Democrats couldn’t get him on Russian collusion. The report submitted by ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller said there was no evidence to one of the biggest liberal media myths of all time. How many bombshells turned out to be nothingburgers over the past two years? It’s endless. Nothing stuck because there was no evidence—nothing.
Right now, Trump is being impeached over an alleged quid pro quo scheme in which he refused to offer Ukraine aid unless they investigated Hunter Biden who was sat on the board of Burisma, an energy company, making $50,000/month despite having zero experience in this field. He got this sweet gig when his father, Joe Biden, was serving as vice president and leading efforts to root out corruption in the country. The allegation is that Hunter was there to sell access to top Obama officials. House Democrats ran with this. They were forced to since the 2020 election is here, they promised their base impeachment, and this was their best chance—a shoddier impeachment case than collusion. The House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees held hearings. The witnesses offered next to nothing in terms of making the Democrats’ case stronger. It was all theater. Everyone saw it.
This allegation came from a whistleblower report from a reported CIA agent who is also a registered Democrat and had worked with a 2020 candidate. This person was also reportedly a National Security Council staffer in the Obama White House. This person contacted Rep. Adam Schiff’s staff before he filed the complaint; Schiff is one of the biggest anti-Trump Democrats on the Hill. Schiff knew the contents before it was formally filed and planned to weaponize its contents to attack the White House. The initial impeachment process began underground, with Democrats only releasing select transcripts that bolstered their weak sauce allegation. When the impeachment inquiry became official, the full breadth of the joke was unveiled. All this impeachment push did was increase Trump’s approval numbers and pushed swing states further away from Democrats. So, nice work, fellas. Voters in battleground states do not support this push. And now, with the Russians hacking Burisma, the collusion nonsense is being peddled again, where the liberal media and the Democrats see this move as the Kremlin once again doing Trump’s bidding. There are literally not enough bath salts in the world, folks (via NYT):
With President Trump facing an impeachment trial over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, Russian military hackers have been boring into the Ukrainian gas company at the center of the affair, according to security experts.
The hacking attempts against Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company on whose board Hunter Biden served, began in early November, as talk of the Bidens, Ukraine and impeachment was dominating the news in the United States.
It is not yet clear what the hackers found, or precisely what they were searching for. But the experts say the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens — the same kind of information that Mr. Trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed for an investigation of the Bidens and Burisma, setting off a chain of events that led to his impeachment.
The Russian tactics are strikingly similar to what American intelligence agencies say was Russia’s hacking of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. In that case, once they had the emails, the Russians used trolls to spread and spin the material, and built an echo chamber to widen its effect.
Let the nonsense flow:

Russia is reportedly breaking out its 2016 playbook in the run-up to 2020 and going after Trump's biggest rival https://t.co/PH5Te7bcK2— VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) January 14, 2020
Russia’s hacking of Burisma is significant - and sets up the playbook it perfected in 2016. 1- Steal emails of US presidential candidate. 2- Release those emails to the public. 3- Time that release for maximum effect. 1/— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) January 14, 2020
2/ Remember, Russia stole DNC emails and then released them right in the midst of the Democratic convention. Russia stole Podesta emails & released them 22 minutes (!!) after release of Access Hollywood tape.— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) January 14, 2020
3/ Russian military intelligence - the GRU - was behind the DNC and Podesta email hacks and appears to be behind Burisma hack as well.— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) January 14, 2020
4/ Question now is how the US would react if Russia follows the same strategy. Will news media report the stolen information? Will US candidates including the president seek to take advantage? More broadly, will foreign interference be normalized?— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) January 14, 2020

Once again there is no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, just that the Russians were once again interfering with their former socialist republics. The amount of brain damage from snorting collusion has been documented and I suggest the liberal media stop for their health. At the same time, these people are already intellectually disabled, so I’ll just watch, wait, mock, and repeat. Trump is going to win a second term if this keeps up. Everyone who doesn’t live in D.C., N.Y, or L.A.—which is most of the country—do not care about this. We’ve moved on because there was no collusion then and there is no collusion now.
