American Thinker: A good prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich, and with nothing else of substance happening, that’s what appears to be going on now with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian collusion in the election of President Donald Trump. There’s been a lot of speculation about what he was going to do in the wake of revelations that the original basis for the Trump investigation by the FBI, was based on tainted low-standard politically motivated evidence. Nothing has turned up to show anything indictable to support the left’s sour-grapes case claiming President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. So what we see now is a Special Counsel without a mission and with a vague mandate, a struggle to get scraps from very tangential matters.
Kid you not, even the leftwing Deep State press has noticed this pathetic picture. Get a load of what Mike Allen’s Axios has as its top story for Saturday, headlined:
The Mueller stories worth ignoring
Allen, who is very Washington swamp-savvy and closely read by the Beltway types, lists a litany of headlines indicating the direction the Special Counsel is going, now that the Nunes Memo and the Graham-Grassley memo have exposed the fallacy of the original investigation. It’s everything from looking at Ivanka Trump’s role in the Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer, to Trump’s adventures at the Moscow Miss Universe pageant. The reports are coming not from Mueller’s office but from what Allen calls “gabby witnesses” who got asked such questions from the Mueller team and then told the press. Not exactly the stuff of collusion. MORE
