The release of Robert Mueller’s finding that Donald Trump didn’t collude with Russia should settle a question his critics -- and, quietly, some of his allies -- have asked repeatedly over the last two years: Why was he acting so guilty?
It turns out that he was acting innocent, only in a typically combative, over-the-top Trump fashion.
The left and the media were never willing to credit the idea that Trump sincerely believed that he was being treated unfairly -- because he was.
When Trump said in his infamous Lester Holt interview that he fired James Comey because the Trump-Russia thing “is a made-up story,” he wasn’t confessing to obstruction of justice, he was stating a fact that the Mueller probe would establish 2,800 subpoenas and 500 search warrants later.
