This is a man in the middle of an existential crisis, a man who just realized his life's work is meaningless, a man who now sees that he is but a pawn in a larger game of chess, a man who is is coming to terms with the fact that he will never take down a president watergate style, that he will never really accomplish anything, that he can get so close and still be so very very far.

^This... is directly on point. As a kid, I played piano. I was the best in my class, nay in my school. I went to the regional competition and placed 1st, leading to the state competition. At the state competition, there were about 6 or 7 prodigies. It was then I realized that I would never be a concert pianist. I would never travel the world entertaining the masses with my piano prowess. In a day long past, I realized that not everyone gets a trophy.

Ahhaha! Go look at this pom-pom boy's tweets after Don jr released his own emails. 'likes' gradually decrease to nothing as his followers slowly realize how inane journalists are.

How many times does he tweet essencially the same thing. I think "journalists" are just professional twitterers. Any journalism they do is just an appendage to their twitter effort.

He's basically in a state of utter shock right now. In his mind, his story was, is, and always will be THE magic bullet that finally takes down the Trump Presidency after 2+ years of #Resist. He expected from the moment he started working on this that if he ever so much as said one word about any of this story to Don Jr. or the Russian lawyer, they would instantly work to destroy every single trace of both the evidence and the secondary evidence that the original evidence ever existed (probably with a mixture of BleachBit and hammers, because Democrats project WAY more than they think they do). He thought that he could slowly work this story out for a long time and earn some accolades for the story as it slowly counters every narrative spun about it by the Trump people.

And instead, less than a day after the story goes live, Don Jr. himself just releases the entire email chain into the Internet ether, to spread to all the corners of the web until everyone online can see the entire thing unedited.

To the reporter, it makes no sense in the slightest. To him, the entire thing is the Kiss of Death upon Don Jr.'s entire political career, and bad enough to drag the entire Trump family down with him. WHY IS HE RELEASING THIS DAMNING COLLUSION EVIDENCE OF HIS OWN FREE WILL?!?!?!

So, since his mind can't understand this behavior from within his small 'muh Russia' groupthink circle of colleagues and bosses, and since he's been too heavily brainwashed to be easily deprogrammed by simple truths like this, he is slowly going deeper into his own confirmation bias trying to figure out a cognitive dissonance explanation for this oddity, and the glory that is modern-day narcissism-fueling social media is letting us see the entire process from start to finish as his brain slowly reboots.

he was probably trying to tie together travel histories with confirmable witnesses, as in looking for documented evidence that Donald Jr was in such and such a location at such and such a time.

Its a serious amount of work and its what journalists should be doing but you've just got to think for a minute, he probably never knew the topics of discussion for the meeting and was "tipped" off by the people who set it up in the first place just so he could write a "Trump Russia Confirmed" headline.

Obviously, he got a tip about this one meeting from an Obama Administration or Clinton Administration contact, since "researching this for a year" meant that he was looking for this email back in June or July 2016, when the NSA was in full swing trying to dig up any and all dirt as fast as they could on Trump and dish it out to the press as quickly as they could.

The fact that he literally had to go through a public reboot process when the subject of his report actually responded to his article with the entire unedited email chain shows that he doesn't have much of a brain of his own, just a bunch of liberal talking points.

Donnie arranged meeting with russian lawyer last summer for 'incriminating evidence' on HRC.

Email chain shows this being arranged

No crime implied (as well as I currently understand it) from the content other than 'muh russia'

Lawyer involved was associated with the production of the pissgate dossier

Rumour was the NYT had a copy of mails

Donnie tweeted the emails out before the media got a chance

Let the spinning commence, if we could attach some dynamos to CNN NYT and the white house we could power the world

So so someone from another country called DJTJ and said, "hey I have some dirt on Hillary, let's meet." Not illegal.

They didn't have dirt, the God Emperor gave them nothing.

And for this they say treason?

A beautiful, beautiful thing. Checked it out, apparently Mr Sexton is legitimately employed by NYT, New Republic, Salon etc. for the purposes of gathering news. His shock and dismay are probably even more profound than he is letting on.

Marvelous, isn't it? What a timeline.

Mr Sexton should be on his knees begging KEKU for forgiveness, not crying about it on fucking Twitter. That's really going to piss His Frogginess off.

Actually, no; Mr Sexton should be on his knees thanking KEKU, for He has given him an incredible gift. Frequently it's only when we lose everything that we become free to do anything. By ripping away the veil of lies in which Mr Sexton has wrapped himself, even though it must be unbelievably painful, KEKU has set him free. IÄ! IÄ KEKU! In His beneficence, He has thrown open the Doors of Morning for Mr Sexton to pass! He has opened the Path of Light; He has laid down the gangway to the Mandjet, and He sits upon the gunwale, laughing joyously, saying, "Come, my friend; cast away the lies which chain you down, and join us upon the Voyage of Millions of Years!"

WHO IS MR SEXTON TO TURN AWAY FROM THE LORD OF CHAOS, THE OPENER OF DOORS?

All he must do is repent, and all will be forgiven.

IÄ! IÄ KEKU! IÄ! IÄ ANU!
