The Left's Hero to Zero

The Dems hoped that Robert Mueller had the magic bullet that would unseat Trump. But all he had was a denial that anything was "In his purview." And his gun was empty. All Mueller had was a cap pistol. With damp caps.......

FPM- It's hard to remember that not all that long ago, Robert Mueller was the great hope of the anti-Trump camp. The media described him as a fashion icon, a ruthless prosecutor, and a man who was on top of absolutely anything. Mueller was the man to put Trump away. T-shirts reading, "It's Mueller Time" were a fashion accessory for the #Resistance: "Vogue dubbed Mueller, a 74-year-old lawyer, “America’s newest crush”.
“He can evoke shades of Humphrey Bogart and has mastered a nearly Zoolander-esque gaze,” the style mag raved. A lesbian folk band wrote a love song to Mueller, crooning, “I see you on TV / I see you in my dreams”. 
Spike Lee wore a t-shirt that screamed, “GOD PROTECT ROBERT MUELLER”. Chelsea Handler tweeted, “I’m starting to have a real crush on Mueller.” Stephen Colbert compared him to Batman. A California artist claimed that looking at a picture of Mueller reassured him that everything would be okay."
And then it all ended with a whimper.

The Trump-killer was just an elderly Washington D.C. apparatchik who couldn't handle the rigors of testifying and who had clearly allowed his supposed subordinates to handle the details of what had been misleadingly described as the Mueller investigation. The reason Robert Mueller never wanted to testify and why he needed counsel wasn't integrity. He just couldn't handle it.
"The political operatives who created a campaign to undermine confidence in the 2016 election, needed that too. They wanted someone to give their partisan campaign the professional look of a 74-year-old model willing to put his name on the investigation and be photographed wearing his costume to work. 
The Mueller investigation was never about Mueller. The Washington D.C. insider was just a useful front man for a team of Obama and Clinton supporters, most notably disgraced figure Andrew Weissmann, whose ugly tactics were all over the circus."
Mueller wasn't running things. And he hardly knows anything. The Mueller investigation is dead. The Mueller report is a joke.

About That Guardian "Bombshell".....

I have to preface this link by saying I’m skeptical. The sourcing is very thin, and one of the writers has a very.... uh....dubious history: Manafort held secret talks with Assange in Ecuadorian embassy, sources say.
"Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and visited around the time he joined Trump’s campaign, the Guardian has been told. Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House."
For what it’s worth, and that’s probably not much, both Assange and Manafort have vehemently denied this report. Manafort's statement:
 "This story is totally false and deliberately libelous. I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him. I have never been contacted by anyone connected to Wikileaks, either directly or indirectly.  I have never reached out to Assange or Wikileaks on any matter. We are considering all legal options against the Guardian who proceeded with this story even after being notified by my representatives that it was false.” - Aaron Blake@Tweeter 
I should say now, I could care less about Paul Manafort. He's part of the opportunist, greasy underbelly of politics, and probably guilty of something or other, and Mueller knows it.

And that dubious history I mentioned above? One of the authors of the Guardian piece, Luke Harding, once claimed that the NSA hacked into his computer and for weeks, as he worked on a book about Edward Snowden, deleted text as he was writing it, causing his keyboard to start “flashing and bleeping.”

I tend to think this is part of a disinformation ruse. As the embassy Assange is holed up in is under Surveillance 24/7 by numerous sources for sure, let them show the video proof if he did visit. So unless this incendiary report is corroborated by someone who doesn’t have a flashing, bleeping keyboard, I’m going to take all this with a shaker full of salt.

Captain Ahab Aims Harpoons at Trump’s Tweets

The New York Times reports that special counsel Robert Mueller “is scrutinizing tweets and negative statements from the president about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the former FBI director James B. Comey.” The Old Gray Lady did not divulge whether the special counsel also seeks the names of books checked out on the president’s library card. As far as fishing expeditions go, this one evokes one such adventure told 167 years ago — and still checked out of libraries today.

“But shall this crazed old man be tamely suffered to drag a whole ship’s company down to doom with him?” No Starbuck sails on the Badship Bob Mueller. Ahab fixates on the whale and loses sight of the mandate of his mission, the collateral damage that his monomania unleashes, and, ultimately, reality itself. The 140-characters-or-less presidential prose strikes as somewhat less esoteric and metaphorical than Moby-Dick. Do literary offenses amount to legal ones? They do when zealous prosecutors cannot find real crimes. The New York Times notes in its report, “Prosecutors who lack one slam-dunk piece of evidence in obstruction cases often search for a larger pattern of behavior, legal experts said.

To produce a mighty book, Herman Melville explains, you must choose a mighty theme. No great and enduring volume can ever be written on the flea, though many there be who have tried it. Robert Mueller, who couldn’t convict Hells Angels and tried to frame Steven Hatfill as a domestic terrorist, now tries to write a mighty book with Donald Trump as his Moby Dick. This one figures to end for Ahab the same way the first one did.

Beware of fishing expeditions. You might catch something; monomania more likely than Moby Dick. They tend to hook the fisherman more often than the fish. But the man attached to one end of the line never sees it that way. - READ MORE
