Look something is off....
When this thing started- it was pretty universal that Mueller was respected by a lot of the right. And by right I dont include the 'NeverTrumpers'. Now as soon as the investigation took longer than a month, his reputation was slowly eroded. To the point where now Mueller's name has been trashed in the Fox News circles.
But no one still knows whats going on. I as a lib am tired of it all. I just want to know the results out in the open so we can, as informed public, make a decision one way or the other..
However looking at other posts and stories out there.... Maybe theres a something going on that can bring ALL OF US together.
Dont forget- leaks and fake news included... no one knows what Mueller is after. The right assumes hes going to trash trump while ignoring the Clinton Foundation and the left assumes he will vindicate the Russia story and implicate the Trump Organization. What if Mueller is closing in on BOTH the Clintons AND Trump?

The declination of Mueller's credibility is happening in a far wider circle than just those who watch Fox News. Many of us who have been or are currently employed in the legal field see what he has done with this investigation and the foundation upon which it was formed in the FISA court to be exceptionally flawed and out of the scope of its original directive.
That aside, though, "what Mueller is after" has far left the tracks upon which the investigative train was set to travel. I'm all for people who are not following federal laws being handed to US Attorneys, but what Mueller is doing is getting out of control.
Now enter the pathetic way that his investigators are trying to trap people in false-statement/perjury charges while at the same time trying to bribe them with deals if they make statements that help the investigation, and you can really start seeing how desperate and deranged this investigation has become.
Here's the thing: There is still absolutely NOTHING on Trump that hints at illegal activity on his behalf yet, and after more than 1.5 years of investigating, it's not looking like Mueller is going to get the pats on the back from hyper-ideologue Democrats like many thought would be the outcome. And honestly, it seems like everything that comes out the further along the investigation goes seems better and better for Trump himself.
This has now become a war to with the court of public opinion by Mueller and his investigation, and even Obama is jumping on board, bragging the other day that HIS administration never saw an indictment. It's a concerted effort to demonize the POTUS, regardless of any evidence of "collusion" (which STILL is not a crime) between POTUS and Russian agents trying to affect the election in his favor.
As for his going after the Clintons--I would literally be speechless if that was any version of the future outcome of this investigation, but I guess that anything is possible, to include a sudden discovery of direct collusion to defraud the election on Trump's part. We'll see.

What if Mueller is trying to see the enforcing our laws with blind purity?
My God! How dare he enforce the law without taking into account partisanship!
