Trump Still Winning as Mueller Whiffs [OPINION]
ABC News tried to break it to the nation gently.
"A source close to the investigation" is reporting that additional charges should not be expected in the Mueller investigation report, which has now been handed to the Attorney General of the United States Bill Barr as of this afternoon.
Also, as Rod Rosenstein acknowledged last June, "the Department of Justice will not - and cannot without violating longstanding Department of Justice policy - include disparaging or incriminating information about anybody who has not been charged with a crime."
Yes, you read it correctly. Robert Mueller has turned over his now-closed investigative report to the Attorney General. You know nothing good for Democrats is in the report. Otherwise, the designed FAT moment would not be happening. FAT? Oh, it's the "Friday After Three" news timing.
You see, the way it works in Washington is, the liberal media is "made aware" of most news contrary to their narrative after 3 p.m. if it can be manipulated. This way, they don't have time to bring it to the newsrooms properly tonight, no one watches the news on weekends and next week they can and do often say, "That was last week's news."
I guessed the report would be handed out and the media briefed sometime around 2:45 p.m. today, so the mainstream media can minimize any reporting of it. Mueller's timing isn't coincidental, trust me. They will also now choreograph a focus on some other issue—and make it seem more important than this blockbuster development.
If Rachel Maddow's "Trump Taxes" show was a dud hand grenade, this is a nuclear missile that blew up and failed to detonate, only dumping rainbow confetti over the targeted city.
Once again, those who have this XXXL-sized emotional investment in the impeachment of President Trump will walk away empty-handed at the altar. For the first time as president, Trump may not be a subject of a federal investigation as early as next week.
Call in the Pink P--- Brigade, they will be out in full force from now until November 2020.
Perhaps there will be a pop-culture celebrity scandal. Maybe a panda will give birth in Beijing. Or, they might get lucky and something really awful will actually happen, something like a domestic catastrophe, to provide the legitimate excuse for not fully reporting the enormous news that Trump is guilty of none of what he'd been accused of by Democrats since 2016.
All of you know how to turn on the news; it's understanding how to watch the news when you begin to wake from their matrix.
Bring on the Beto sicko, Liz Warren or Hickenlooper or whatever his name is. As we all know, 2020 is coming up fast.
