Be careful what you wish for, Trump supporters.
Trump and his closest allies had demanded an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign staff, who had often linked Trump to Putin while on the trail and during debates. But now that Clinton’s former attorney has been found not guilty of lying to the FBI (something Michael Flynn couldn’t get away with), the MAGA machine is already in overdrive to discredit the verdict. Speaking loudly among Trump’s remaining loyalists is his final Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany. “For three years, we would vent about this at the campaign, vent about this in the White House, for three years, we were told the choice of the American people was a Russian asset,” McEnany griped. “Think about that. The president of the United States, a Russian asset.”Yeah, we don’t have anything to back up those claims besides his entire history with Putin and that Not Guilty verdict, McEnemy.
Fox News really running with the crooked biased jury as the reason John Durham didn't get a guilty verdict.

Speaking on Fox News, McEnany claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller determined it was “not true” that Trump was a Russian asset and blamed the jury for being partisan instead of the fact that both she and her former boss lied to the American people on the daily for years too: “The D.C. jury pool. This is an area of our country where 76% of people in the District of Columbia are registered Democrats. This was a jury pool of 37 that was whittled down to a smaller number. But of those 37 jurors, there were many avowed Clinton supporters who said they had donated to the Clinton campaign. Some of those individuals weren’t chosen, but about a third of that jury pool was either a Clinton supporter or had strong feelings about the election, and prosecutors were very frustrated that they would not get a fair shake here. So I think this does raise questions on how fair of a shake you could be given in D.C. with a jury pool that does oftentimes weigh partisan in one direction.”
Kayleigh McEnany, the pusher of Trump lies? Lol. pic.twitter.com/MyNYi3kCsTSee Also

Nah, not the former guy’s fault at all.
