    Barr affirms Mueller found no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion; report release at 11 a.m.

    Carter Page graduated in the top 10% of his class at Annapolis. He is not "stupid". He also served as an Naval Intelligence Officer, so he's not naive, either. As for the legitimacy of the Aussie tip; I think that's been covered. I'm confused about what "we declared victory in that thing"...
