Robert Mueller took 674 days to exclusively investigate a sitting president because Democrats felt then-candidate Donald Trump had colluded with the Russian government to defeat their candidate, Hillary Clinton.
According to a spokesman, Mueller is leaving after concluding his investigation.
On April 3, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee voted to authorize subpoenas for the full, unredacted Mueller report to include underlying evidence. Attorney General William Barr, and possibly Mueller, will probably be called to testify in front of the committee.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want the meetings in private, and Dems have been chomping at the bit to find something that they know nothing about. President Trump justifiably tweeted his good news after Mueller gave his report to the AG.
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

Robert Mueller, the special counsel who spent nearly two years investigating Donald Trump’s links to Russian interference in the 2016 US election, will be leaving the Department of Justice in the “coming days,” a spokesman said.
Mueller, who spent 674 days on the investigation before handing a 400 page report to attorney general William Barr, “will be concluding his service within the coming days,” DOJ spokesman Peter Carr told Quartz today. A “small staff remains to assist in closing the operations of the office,” Carr said. He said he didn’t have more information on what day, exactly, Mueller would depart, or whether his departure could coincide with Barr’s promise to distribute a redacted version of the report before mid-April.
Mueller, a long-time civil servant, was the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2001 to 2013; he left a private law firm to conduct the special investigation in May of 2017, after Trump abruptly fired FBI head James Comey. Carr, who served as the spokesman for the special counsel’s office since the beginning of the investigation, has returned to the department’s main Office of Public Affairs. [Quartz]
House Republicans have voted along with Democrats to release the entire report to the public with no redactions. Senate Republicans have clashed with their counterparts meanwhile, blocking a measure to make the Mueller report public five times.
Interestingly, not one single American was indicted for assisting “Russian Interference” in the 2016 election.
Moreover, of the six people associated with the Trump campaign who were charged, not a single one was indicted for anything remotely about “Russian Collusion,” or anything having to do with Trump himself. Twenty Nine! of those indicted were Russian citizens (3 were Russian companies) who will never appear before an American Court.
So Mueller “caught” a passel of Russians, but zero Americans and the whole Mueller Investigation has turned out to be a total bust for the Leftist Progressives who were salivating for any fig-leaf of rational to Impeach a duly elected President they viscerally hate.
