Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Man, no one could have seen this coming. Oh, wait…. – Way back in September, the Campaign Update informed its loyal readers (thanks to all of you) that the signs were obvious that Gestapo Chief…er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller was systematically going about the process of wrapping things up. We speculated at the time that it would likely take several months for Mueller to complete the process, given that he he likely still had more ham sandwich indictments to pursue, was still at the time hoping to personally interview President Donald Trump, and would want to give his team of loyal Clinton/Obama hacks plenty of time to secure other employment.
Well, it turns out that that process is going to end up taking right at six months, at least if all the fake news media reports out there this morning are to be believed. Yes, it’s your basic crap shoot, given that the first outlet to report the story was CNN, and given that CNN’s report is based only on “people familiar with the plans,” but it seems likely that this is the rare occasion that the fake news network is getting something right.
There are several reasons that this timing would make sense:
First, as mentioned above, it has been obvious for six months that Mueller has been working on wrapping things up, despite all the fake media reporting and Democrat wishful thinking to the contrary;
Second, Tuesday’s announcement that oily Rod Rosenstein would be leaving the DOJ in early-to-mid-March means that Mueller’s days are certainly numbered in any event;
Third, the assumption of office on Tuesday by William Barr, President Trump’s first real Attorney General who isn’t stupidly and needlessly recused from a damn thing means that there is a new sheriff in town looking over Mueller’s corrupt shoulder, and he most likely doesn’t much care for what he’s seeing.
So, Mueller is no doubt feverishly working to finish up whatever “report” he’s been working on and will in all likelihood send it over to Mr. Barr next week, if not sooner.
When that happens, Barr is under no obligation whatsoever to issue any summary of the report, or indeed make a single word from Mueller’s work public. During his confirmation hearing, Barr did semi-commit to making some sort of “summary of findings” public, but he has no legal obligation to do so, and that can take any form he deems appropriate. It is his job and his job alone to make that decision.
Regardless of what Barr decides to do with Mueller’s “report,” we should expect to see a series of utterly false reports published by the Usual Suspects in the fake news media – can you say New York Times and Washington Post and CNN and MSNBC? – containing all manner of wild allegations targeting President Trump, based purely on anonymous sources. Because that is what our fake news media does.
We can also expect Democrats in congress and/or running for president to make their own wild claims, because that is what they do, too. They’re all reciting from the same narrative the media is using, after all.
But in the end, Mueller will still be holding a big, smelly bag of nothing where President Trump is concerned. There is no “Russia collusion” and there never was.
The best news about Mueller wrapping his nonsense up is that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will now be free to issue his own report on his two-year investigation into the rampant abuse of the FISA process committed by the Deep State cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and much of 2017. Horowitz has been delaying his own report, waiting on Mueller to finish.
Now that we have a real attorney general governing this process instead of Rosenstein, perhaps Mr. Horowitz will be free to issue his real findings this time, and not the watered-down slop that characterized his report last year on the Clinton email scandal.
Wouldn’t that be a welcome change? We can only hope.
Words alone cannot describe the pure awesomeness of this Twitter meme… – you just have to watch it for yourself. (Warning – it’s your basic PG-13 video):
