For months fake news reporters speculated about the status of Robert Mueller’s rigged witch hunt against Donald Trump.
Rumors floated around Washington that Mueller would deliver a death blow to the Trump Presidency.
And now Mueller just dropped one big hint about where his investigation stands.
Mueller moved to the sentencing phase for Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort.
This suggested to experts that their cooperation with his investigation was at an end.
It also signaled that his investigation was wrapping up.
The Washington Post reports:
Cooperators “usually go last,” said Robert Ray, a former independent counsel on the Whitewater investigation.
The sentencing of those Mueller defendants “suggests to me that whatever those individuals have done for the special counsel investigation, there is no further use for them,” Ray said. “If there were any contemplation of using them at trial, you would sentence them later. And the only conclusion I can draw from all that is that we are nearing the end.”
Ray said he expects Mueller to deliver a report on his findings in the first three months of 2019. Mueller may also be willing to proceed quickly to sentencing cooperators in part because he expects to present more information in a report than at any trials.
In the sentencing memos for Flynn, Manafort and Cohen, Mueller made no mention of Russian collusion.
That is good news for Donald Trump.
The central question of the investigation was whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians.
The answer to that question is a resounding no.
If Mueller delivers a report stating that obvious truth it will be a clear win for the President of the United States.
After nearly 18 months of frivolous investigations, the end finally appears to be in sight.
