Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against Donald Trump is dragging on.
Democrats and the media are holding out hope he can prove the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
But one email just showed Trump and his team are innocent.
Trump’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, is caught up in a bit of a mess.
He was duped by a notorious prankster into exchanging emails when he thought the hoaxster was Trump’s social media guru Dan Scavino.
In the course of the email back and forth, Cobb revealed his thoughts on the case.
And he expects Mueller to exonerate Trump and the White House of any collusion charges.
The Daily Caller reports:
White House special counsel Ty Cobb believes that President Trump will soon get “a clean bill of health” in the Russia collusion investigation, but that former Trump advisers Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn could be in legal jeopardy.
At least that’s what he wrote in emails he believed he was exchanging with White House social media director Dan Scavino.
“I have great confidence there is nothing there implicating the President or the White House. Manafort and Flynn have issues separate and apart from the [White House] that will cause the investigation to linger but am hoping we get a clean bill of health soon,” Cobb wrote in an email on Wednesday.
Cobb’s remarks were likely not intended for public consumption. But they were published on Thursday after a prankster posing as Scavino released the exchanges to Business Insider.
The Russia probe has generated months of heated headlines.
But the substance of the stories and the investigation has not matched the sensationalized coverage.
Zero evidence of collusion exists.
And the Mueller probe is heading in other directions.
As Cobb admits, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn have legal issues.
But they are separate from Russia and the White House.
They are in peril because of their work as foreign lobbyists and an alleged lack of reporting of income from those payments.
The media will surely hype any charges – and Mueller may even use them in an impeachment report to Congress – but the underlying pretense of the investigation – collusion with Russia – is collapsing before everyone’s eyes.
Cobb’s email is the latest evidence there is “nothing there” when it comes to the Russia collusion angle.
At some point the media and investigators are going to be forced to admit the truth and drop this fake news hoax.
