With Robert Mueller having been considered “near completion” of his now-infamous investigation for months now, there are plenty of opinions as to what could arise from the final report.
For many, the length of the investigation itself has been a telltale sign of Mueller’s lack of evidence. By continuing to squeeze every possible low hanging fruit around, including Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone of Infowars and Richard Nixon fame respectively, the Special Counsel has essentially played his hand.
In Texas Hold’em terms: He’s waiting on The River.
So now, as something is surely coming around the bend in Mueller-land, NBC News has begun to prepare its viewers for the possibility that nothing of substance will be revealed.
Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary.
Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed.
Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn’t amount to a provable crime.
NBC’s pre-warning comes as many are under the impression that Mueller’s report will be fully public.
Fat chance, says NBC.
Those rules require that the special counsel’s report to the attorney general be “confidential.” And, while the attorney general is required to notify Congress about Mueller’s findings, the rules say those reports must amount to “brief notifications, with an outline of the actions and the reasons for them.”
“Expectations that we will see a comprehensive report from the special counsel are high. But the written regulations that govern the special counsel’s reporting requirements should arguably dampen those expectations,” said Chuck Rosenberg, a former federal prosecutor and NBC News analyst.
Excuse me, folks, but I believe We The People have been footing the bill for this goose chase.
We’re going to need the receipt…understood?
