The devastating indictment of the FBI by the IG reduces all the Kremlin and RUSSIAN COLLUSION bullshit to inadequate fertilizer.

It sounds like that's what Barr was hired for,  to be Trump's "fixer"

""Trump...has always been slavishly obedient to Vladimir Putin"

"It's stunning, it's literally unbelievable to have an American president who has so little interest in American security, and such a vast commitment to himself."

Trump Keeps Taking Russia’s Side, and We Don’t Know Why

The distinction between how Trump processes Germany’s self-interest and Russia’s self-interest is telling. If Germany has done something Trump deems contrary to American interests — sell us too many high-tech goods, or fail to maintain a large enough army — he treats it as an offense requiring punishment. If Russia has done something against American interests — arm a radical militia we’re fighting — he simply accepts it as natural. Self-interest is an excuse for Russia, but not for Germany.

Trump’s decision to pick a fight with Germany has two curious aspects. One is that it doesn’t come from the normal channels that usually drive his policy moves. His policy advisers haven’t been pushing for a German troop drawdown, nor have any talking heads on Fox News made this a priority. It is one of the very few Trump initiatives that seems to have sprung fully formed from his own brain.

The second aspect is that, of course, driving a wedge between the U.S. and Germany is a long-term Russian foreign-policy goal. And Trump could have merely framed his decision as a budget-saving move, or a desire to increase the troops’ presence elsewhere in Europe. Instead he presented his decision specifically as a punishment for America’s ally.
