They had no case from the very beginning. This particular disaster was orchestrated for effect and pretty much exploded prematurely when the American company owned by a Russian Oligarch showed up ready to defend themselves. The government’s pathetic group of Team Mueller lawyers were running away long before Barr was in charge at DOJ.

Actually the Mueller team was called out pretty early, turned out they were bluffing...

My understanding is this:
As noted above, one of the groups indicted decided to aggressively fight the charges.
In order to prosecute, the DOJ would be forced to reveal the methods used to gain an indictment.
The government decided to drop the charges rather than reveal the sources/methods they used for the indictment.
