We've entered the five stages of Russiagate Grief
Stage One: Denial
Let me be clear, I CONCEDE NOTHING! If #MuellerReport didn’t look into Trump’s business ties with the Russians before the elections and didn’t look into his secret meetings with them after the election, then this is an epic debacle that looked into the exact wrong things.

In light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report, where Mueller did not exonerate the President, we will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify before @HouseJudiciary in the near future.

Stage Two: Anger (mostly reserved for leftists)
Government: Hussein has WMD's, here's a summary intel report
Greenwald: I DONT BELIEVE IT, SHOW ME HARD EVIDENCE
Government: Trump didn't collude/obstruct, here's 4pg summary
Greenwald: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR AGREEING WITH MY NARRATIVE

Can we focus on the Golan Heights, Venezuela and Yemen? Or are we gonna waste more time on victory laps?

I can summarize GG’s world view in one tweet: “US bad, Putin good, Hillary bad, Bernie good, Fox good, MSNBC bad, Trump Presidency not dangerous, Brazilian Presidency very dangerous and dogs are more important than people”. Did I miss anything?

Stage Three: Bargaining
Possible that Mueller is preparing to hand dozens to a hundred sealed indictments to regular offices when he unseals; the Attorneys on his team are appellate specialists, I believe. E.G. Dana Boente at EDVA obtained the sealed indictment on @Trump (covering @realDonaldTrump)

Stage Four: Depression
A popular podcast called “Mueller, She Wrote,” which is streamed up to 200,000 times a week, calls its Russia-obsessed fans Muellerites. One of the three hosts, a California comedian who goes by A. G. and has a tattoo of Mr. Mueller’s silhouette on her arm, said the community was in what could only be described as a collective state of muted shock.
“I’ve had to talk a couple people off the ledge,” she said.
One fan of the podcast, Anne Craig-Tillmond, said she wants to see the full report before she’s “completely deflated.”
“I’ve been emotionally invested from the start, and was I let down by what Barr said? Absolutely,” Ms. Craig-Tillmond said. “Was I let down by what Mueller said? I don’t know what he said.”
The Facebook page of the Robert Mueller Fan Club says on its “About” page, “All hail Robert Mueller — through his work we shall be delivered from this ignorance and evil we suffer.” Barbara Llewellyn, a retired real estate agent from Naperville, Ill., had written “Hallelujah” on the page. But by Monday, she had changed her tune.
