Democrats set their sights on impeaching Donald Trump from the moment he won the 2016 election.
Led by Nancy Pelosi, Democrats have claimed they will wait for Robert Mueller to issue his final report before moving on impeachment.
But then Nancy Pelosi was smacked with some really bad news about impeaching Trump.
John Dowd – who represented Trump during the outset of the investigation – told an ABC News podcast about the Mueller probe.
Not only does Mueller have nothing, but he doesn’t even think there will be a formal report.
The veteran criminal defense attorney who headed President Donald Trump’s legal team during a crucial stretch of the special counsel investigation believes the entire affair will end in silence from special counsel Robert Mueller, and called the massive two-year probe into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign “a terrible waste of time.”
“I don’t think there’ll be a report,” John Dowd told ABC News in a wide-ranging interview for the premiere episode of “The Investigation,” a new podcast focused on the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller. “I will be shocked if anything regarding the president is made public, other than ‘We’re done…
…I know exactly what [Mueller] has,” Dowd said. “I know exactly what every witness said, what every document said. I know exactly what he asked. And I know what the conclusion or the result is,” he said, describing the sweeping efforts by Trump’s legal team to assess the case by speaking to dozens of witnesses. Based on that knowledge, Dowd said, “there’s no basis. There’s no exposure. It’s been a terrible waste of time.”
Dowd’s overall view of the investigation — he called it “one of the greatest frauds this country’s ever seen” — echoes Trump’s claim that it is a hoax or a witch hunt.”
Dowd’s comments line up with speculation that has begun to surface in the media.
Both ABC’s Jonathan Karl and CNN’s Chris Cuomo cautioned that Mueller was unlikely to turn up a smoking gun to convict the President of collusion or obstruction of justice.
This comes as no surprise to many Americans.
The evidence has been staring them right in the face.
But will the anti-Trump media finally accept reality?
