Todd: Trump's 'Keystone Cops' Wanted to Collude, Too Incompetent to Figure It Out

In the wake of Thursday's release of the Mueller Report, the liberal media were desperate to latch onto anything. Despite the fact, there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and no open and shut case on obstruction of justice, NBC News political director Chuck Todd appeared on Nightly News and declared that both actually happened.

Well look, I can tell you this: the headline is not ‘no collusion, no exoneration’ as the Trump administration and Bill Barr essentially set us up for three and a half weeks,” he claimed. “When you read through this report, what you see is Mueller found attempted obstruction and attempted conspiracy.”

 

 

According to Todd, the only reason the Trump campaign wasn’t able to pull off a collusion plot with Russia was that they were too stupid to figure it out, comparing them to the inept Keystone Cops:

On the obstruction, the President was essentially protected by a staff that refused to follow his orders. And on the conspiracy, you had basically a Keystone Cop's aspect of the Trump campaign. They wanted to conspire, they just never found the right opportunity to do so.

So this report gives a lot of ammunition to Congress to keep investigating,” Todd boasted.

There was no questions or push back form anchor Lester Holt, who just moved on to the asking chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson about what was being done to stop this in the future.
