They haven’t found any evidence of Russian collusion and its a good sign this farce is winding down.

Winding down? According to the article, Mueller is ramping it up.

He has 2-3 months to find something for the midterms.

> “Winding down? According to the article, Mueller is ramping it up.”

This news content has been out for a couple of weeks now.

Mueller is not ramping up. He’s in a quandary.

He obtained indictments for about a dozen Russian cyber trolls and 3 Russian cyber companies of meddling in the 2016 election.

Mueller thought these indictments would boost his PR prospects, to give cred to his and his staff’s efforts, and thought the Russians would never respond.

The Russians responded much to Mueller’s surprise. Russians hired a law firm and filed a response demanding what evidence Mueller had.

Mueller sh*t his pants. He filed a motion to postpone and the judge told him effing no.

Then Mueller (meaning his office idiots) tried the ‘national security’ excuse. But that is crap as any accused has a right to know who and what is being used against them.

So Mueller seemingly had two choices:
1) Show the evidence which is thought to be quite flimsy, the release of which would give more ammo to Congress to put pressure on Mueller to shut down his witch hunt.
2) Drop the case against the Russian trolls which would be a huge embarrassment to Mueller and would cause Congress to bring him in for questioning, again.

But Mueller found a 3rd way to avoid being cornered.

Mueller decided to tap US Attorneys to take the Russian troll case so that Mueller’s office could shift blame to another part of DOJ. The US Attorneys he requested are not part of his SC office.

> “ ... a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.”

It’s purely a political cover move. The excuse is a BS excuse. Mueller’s idiots are saying the Russian troll case is likely to go on for years (uh-huh, BS) and extend past the time his office is shut down.

So Mueller stepped in it and is trying to wipe the crap he stepped in on some other DOJ prosecutors while he runs away.
