    Help us Obi-wan Mueller, you're our only hope

Isn't he one of the guys that lied you into the iraq war? I find this snoop cuddling quite worrying

Yeah that was kind of the point of hiring him. He has the kind of conservative cred that you can only get by advocating for an illegal war and then never getting held to account for it. Initially all the conservatives were lauding the appointment, because they couldn't scream about partisanship. That's what makes it all the more bizarre that they gaslighted the American public into somehow taking seriously claims that he's part of a vast liberal or "deep state" (a pure bullshit conspiracy theorist term) conspiracy.
