David Stockman offers his take on the end of the Russia investigation. He points out that the Mueller report categorically denies just about every allegation made by President Trump’s opponents, including the surveillance of his campaign based on false information about Carter Page, and the ever-popular “Trump Tower meeting.” Scott and Stockman both worry that too many American democrats have the attitude, “even if Russiagate is made up, anything is justified in bringing Trump down.”
