Crooked hate clown not a traitor on purpose at least

Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump

Following a two-year investigation, Robert Mueller has apparently found that Donald Trump didn’t collude with the Russians. Which is good to know, right? Unless you’re one of the people who pursued this angle at the cost of building a progressive alternative:

Look – we can’t impeach the president for obstructing a crime he didn’t commit. Not even Judge Judy would try that case. We know because we asked her.

Systemic

Although several other cases into Trump’s alleged misdeeds are ongoing, there’s a good chance he’ll avoid punishment – just look at the Iraq War; just look at the Panama Papers; just look at the DWP’s war on disabled people.

As our legal friend explained:

Corrupt institutions are generally pretty relaxed about corruption. Obviously we need to point out wrongdoing, but expecting the criminal classes to enforce the crimes of their peers is like waiting for a tiger to eat itself.

Of course, it’s worth pointing out that Nixon got ousted. It’s also worth noting he was dumb enough to record himself doing crimes, and that he still got pardoned.

So yeah – don’t expect normality to resume any time soon. Things haven’t been ‘normal’ since forever.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help

Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.

We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.

But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
