http://www.alternet.org/files/styles/story_image/public/story_images/shutterstock_gavel.jpg 01.24.2018 | So Tuesday was a very busy day. Mueller runs a tight ship so it's quite likely this latest flurry of leaks is coming from the Department of Justice as a defensive response to the bizarre counter-narrative unfolding in the parallel universe of right-wing media and the GOP Congress. They have gone completely berserk.

House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and the Tea Party fanatics who were weaned on the phony Benghazi investigations, have settled on a new crackpot theory: The FBI is full of Hillary Clinton supporters who stacked the deck in her favor for years and used all the powers of the "Deep State" to create this Russia hoax out of whole cloth. This time around, instead of emails, these folks are in a frenzy over some text messages showing that a couple of FBI employees had political opinions — which of course proves that Clinton should be in jail.
