This whole charade has just about played itself out.
The leaks, the guessing games, the subpoenas, the depositions, the indictments and the rampant speculation is nearing it's end for special council Robert Mueller.
It's been one whole year and he's still got nothing.
The admission that Mr. Mueller cannot indict a sitting president is not a revelation. The revelation is that he said it at all. His purpose as a special council is finally rendered moot as the walls have already begun to close in.
What Mueller needs now is a graceful exit.
Mueller's angle was probably never to indict the president in the first place. His job was to just hang out there as a major distraction to either slow or, by some investigative miracle, find something substantial on presidential candidate Trump.
But that wasn't possible was it since Donald Trump's campaign had been under FBI surveillance the whole time, his phone's tapped and an FBI mole planted in his campaign. The Anti-Trump Deep State already knew there was nothing going on with the Russians or they would have sprung that trap prior to the election.
No, no, they knew right from the beginning that they had nothing because their people on the inside and outside told them already so Mueller's job was to just hang out there and disrupt the Trump presidency and try to slow his agenda.
But now that is unraveling faster than Curley Q. Link in a Mummy costume.
And it's all thanks to the Russians!
So the Russian groups Mueller was granted indictments for have shown up in court with lawyers wanting to see what he's got for evidence and SURPRISE, Mueller is not ready!
How can this be?
How did he get an indictment in the first place? You have to show some kind of evidence to have a court of law issue an indictment, yes? Well where did it go? He had to have told the court that he had a case against these people, that he had evidence to prove that they had done something illegal, right?
So when the accused show up in court, Mr. Mueller's team is now "not ready".
Well isn't that just DANDY!?
This is actually a pretty big deal. This alone proves that the Mueller investigation was all a show.
Prior to trial there is a 'discovery" process where the Prosecutor, that would be Robert Mueller's office, would turn over the evidence that they have to the Defense so that they can prepare their case against it. This is the law in the United States. This evidence should already exist since the Prosecution would have had to present this evidence to the Judge to get the indictment issued in the first place.
So where is it and why could they not produce it at a court hearing?
Speculation has it that Mr. Mueller needed SOMETHING WITH RUSSIANS IN IT to keep the illusion alive that Russians were over running the U.S. election process in 2016 and because of this collusion by the Trump campaign with nefarious Russian oligarchs, poor Hillary lost the election.
So Mueller issues indictments for some Russian groups we've never heard of but he wasn't prepared for them to actually come back at him. This is hilarious in it's assumptive ineptitude.
Coming on the heels of this obvious embarrassment and with increasing calls for him to show what information he has gathered, Mr. Mueller seems to have decided to cut bait and declare he cannot prosecute President Trump. Can his declaration that he is ending his investigation not be far behind?
To issue an indictment means he would have to show his evidence which so far hasn't been working out too well. If he instead concludes his "investigation' and just issues in his final report that he "could have" indicted the President, there could only be a rebuttal from the White House and no trial to provide vindication. Mueller would get to keep his shadowy evidence in the shadows and the National Public Radio crowd screaming for blood the next two years while he heads out of town to go fishing.
In a real pond this time.
