Imagine a world wherein there is no ‘Russia-gate’ scandal. No congressional committees investigating said scandal, no special counsel or wall-to-wall media coverage.
Imagine that … you were to suggest Russia actually colluded with American politicians to interfere in America’s 2016 elections; that they attempted to hack into our electoral systems and used social media to impact how we voted for our president; that your concerns warrant investigation by Congress and a special counsel to further investigate; and that Russia is now to be counted among America’s worst enemies … Imagine a world in which making these charges would get you written off as a crack-pot conspiracy theorist, and see you driven from the public square in shame and ridicule.
Imagine such a world … as the real world … and you begin to see what things would look like had Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016.

The Liberal Media Complex would have joined the Democrat chorus to establish a narrative supporting Mr. Obama’s claim and, thereby, supporting Mrs. Clinton’s claim to presidential legitimacy. And the voluminous evidence of actual collusion between the Clinton Campaign, the DNC, the Obama Administration and, yes, Russians — so as to “rig” the 2016 election against Mr. Trump — would have gone largely, if not completely, unnoticed.
If Mrs. Clinton had won — as the political establishment expected — concerns about Russian meddling in our elections would now be seen as petty and ludicrous; and the liberal media would attend such concerns only so as to delegitimize them. That is, for example, how Democrats and the Liberal Media Complex dealt with Mr. Obama’s Benghazi scandal — they focused on it just long enough to label it as partisan, scandal mongering by Republicans; and after a requisite amount of uninspired media coverage, the Benghazi scandal was cast aside.
By this point in a Clinton presidency, there would have been no appointment of a special counsel, and America would have moved well past ‘Russia-gate’ to focus on other matters … such as …
