Pundits spent months trying to figure out Robert Mueller’s end game.
They believed Mueller was working towards delivering a death blow to Donald Trump’s Presidency.
And now word is leaking out as to what Mueller has planned—and no one can believe what it is.
Robert Mueller Preparing The Left To Be Disappointed
So-called “journalists” and left-wing cable news networks thought Mueller had spent months silently building an airtight case against Donald Trump.
They believed Mueller would prove that Trump worked with the Russians to rig the 2016 election.
In addition, Mueller would show how Trump intended to obstruct the investigation into this conspiracy by firing former FBI Director James Comey.
But neither outcome looks to be the case.
Politico spoke to defense lawyers working with clients on the Russian probe and 15 former government officials with experience on special counsel investigations.
They reported that Mueller would not be issuing a report that would take down Trump’s Presidency.
In fact, they said Mueller’s report may never be made public.
Politico exclusively reports:
That’s the word POLITICO got from defense lawyers working on the Russia probe and more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience spanning Watergate to the 2016 election case. The public, they say, shouldn’t expect a comprehensive and presidency-wrecking account of Kremlin meddling and alleged obstruction of justice by Trump — not to mention an explanation of the myriad subplots that have bedeviled lawmakers, journalists and amateur Mueller sleuths.
Perhaps most unsatisfying: Mueller’s findings may never even see the light of day.
“That’s just the way this works,” said John Q. Barrett, a former associate counsel who worked under independent counsel Lawrence Walsh during the Reagan-era investigation into secret U.S. arms sales to Iran. “Mueller is a criminal investigator. He’s not government oversight, and he’s not a historian.”
Mueller’s Next Steps
Pundits believe Mueller began the prep work by leaking word that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was pressuring him to wrap up the probe by the end of the year.
When Mueller finishes his work, he will submit a report to Rosenstein.
It’s up to Rosenstein to decide how much – if any – is made public.
Pundits expect Mueller will issue a report that takes Trump to task for hiring characters like Paul Manafort.
But they expect his report will fall far short of proving collusion.
If the Democrats win control of Congress, they will certainly subpoena the report.
Even if Mueller ultimately finds Trump innocent of collusion and obstruction of justice, Democrats will want to release the parts of the report that are embarrassing for Trump.
But Mueller wrapping up his probe by year’s end is good news for Trump.
Mueller’s indictments against Russians for election meddling and hacking the DNC made it clear no Americans were involved in either crime.
The fake news media’s two year Russia obsession is about to come to a close.
So Mueller is sending out signals to the Democrats in order to let them down easy.
