Investigation Nets Nothing on Trump: Leftists Now TURNING ON Mueller
Robert Mueller stands in a hole he dug for himself.
Well, he did get a little help from his Leftist friends.
It began when former FBI Director James Comey gave Mueller a ringing endorsement.
As the LA Times reported,

When he was named special counsel in May, Robert S. Mueller III was hailed as the ideal lawman — deeply experienced, strait-laced and nonpartisan — to investigate whether President Trump’s campaign had helped with Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
The accolades squared with Mueller’s valor as a Marine rifle platoon commander in Vietnam and his integrity as a federal prosecutor, senior Justice Department official and FBI director from 2001 to 2013 — the longest tenure since J. Edgar Hoover’s. He was praised by former courtroom allies and opponents, and by Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
That endorsement tipped off all of America not to trust Mueller.
It only took me a nanosecond to conclude that Mueller was as crooked as Comey. But the Left knew a lot more about the man, and yet didn’t draw any conclusions until now.
The article continues,
But at 73, Mueller has a record that shows a man of fallible judgment who can be slow to alter his chosen course. At times, he has intimidated or provoked resentment among subordinates. And his tenacious yet linear approach to evaluating evidence led him to fumble the biggest U.S. terrorism investigation since 9/11.
Now, as he leads a sprawling investigation aimed at the White House, Mueller’s prosecutorial discretion looms over the Trump presidency.
On what terms would Mueller offer immunity from prosecution to investigative targets? How broadly will he interpret his mandate to look into not only the 2016 campaign but also matters that “may arise directly from the investigation”?
Will he target Trump’s sprawling family business and financial empire and the years before the developer ran for the White House?
In short, the Left expected Mueller to do his job and arrest Donald Trump.
Little did they know the trap Hillary Clinton set for Trump has now ensnared many Democrats.
But Mueller has a reputation for blowing cases, even when the defendants are guilty.
In 1979, the government lodged then-novel racketeering charges against 33 members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club. The indictments alleged bombings and murders as well as the manufacture and sale of illegal drugs. The defendants and their supporters were so feared that bulletproof glass was installed in court to shield the judge.
The first trial, of 18 defendants, ended with only five convictions. All were overturned on appeal.
Mueller, who led the U.S. attorney’s special prosecutions unit, then took over the case. He dropped many of the charges, including those against Ralph “Sonny” Barger, leader of the club’s Oakland chapter, whose charismatic testimony had dominated the first trial.
Mueller led a team of four prosecutors in court when the second trial, with 11 defendants, began in October 1980. But after four months, the jury said it was deadlocked, and the judge declared a mistrial. Mueller decided not to ask for a retrial.
Richard B. Mazer, a defense lawyer at both trials, said the government was unable to prove the Hells Angels was a racketeering enterprise. Key prosecution witnesses, he said, seemed unreliable — especially those granted immunity to testify despite having committed violent crimes themselves.
“They made a mess of it,” Mazer recalled. “It was an entirely snitch case. It depended entirely on the quality of snitches.”
This being Mueller’s record, why would Comey recommend him so highly?
Truth be told, Comey shouldn’t have. And neither should the others who chimed in like lemmings.
But Leftists do love their incompetents. And Comey et al likely hoped that Mueller might figure out a way to fabricate a fake news case against the president. But now they realize that you can’t squeeze blood from a turnip. So Mueller can’t make a case.
Now the truth will soon be crystal clear even to the most brain-dead Leftists. The Democrats, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, Comey’s FBI, the Obama administration, Podesta, and other satellites all got their nuts in the nutcracker.
Now let’s identify the patsy. His name is Robert “Oswald” Mueller.
