Robert Mueller finally showed his hand.
The media expected the special counsel’s sentencing memos for Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort to deliver a death blow to Donald Trump’s presidency.
Instead, Trump ended Robert Mueller’s investigation with six words.
Mueller’s sentencing memos were a massive letdown.
In neither memo did Mueller make any reference to information provided by either Cohen or Manafort on Russian collusion.
The best Mueller could do was advance the nonsense storyline about a failed business deal in Russia during the 2016 camapign.
Trump gleefully pointed out that Mueller failed to produce any evidence against him when he tweeted that the memos “totally clears” him.
Totally clears the President. Thank you!

Of course, the fake news media can be expected to keep up the drum beat that these memos are damaging to the president.
They claim that because some unknown Russian reached out to Michael Cohen in 2015 about the Trump Tower in Moscow project it proves collusion.
But the Russians would have to be the greatest political prognosticators of all time to bet on Trump being president in the fall of 2015.
Even the intelligence community’s own assessment claimed the Russians’ only interest at first was sowing discord.
They allege Russia only tried to help Trump later in the campaign.
This is just another fake news “bombshell” that fizzled out under even the slightest bit of scrutiny.
Mueller was tasked with uncovering evidence of Russian collusion during the 2016 campaign.
And once again he failed to deliver the goods.
