Which means that it's an impeachment investigation. The smoke is clearing from an explosive Mueller investigation weekend of charges, chattering, and tweets. Before the next aftershock, it might be helpful to make three points about where things stand. In ascending order of importance, they are: 1.) There is a great deal of misinformation in the commentariat about how prosecutors build cases. 2.) For all practical purposes, the collusion probe is over. While the "counterintelligence" cover will continue to be exploited so that no jurisdictional limits are placed on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, this is now an obstruction investigation. 3.) That means it is, as it has always been, an impeachment investigation.

Bottom line: If the FBI had a collusion case of some kind, after well over a year of intensive investigation, Flynn and Papadopoulos would have been pressured to plead guilty to very serious charges -- and those serious offenses would be reflected in the charges lodged against Manafort. Obviously, the pleas and the indictment have nothing to do with collusion because Mueller has no collusion case.

This is breathtakingly stupid, even for National Review. If Mueller wants somebody to flip he isn't going to throw the kitchen sink at him yet. If he has a deal with someone this is even more true.

We have no idea if Mueller is building a criminal case about Trump colluding with Putin to win the election. That's such a massively serious charge -- comparable to treason -- that Mueller would put all his ducks in a row before making it.

I have this perception that your thought processes mirror Trump's in a strange way. In both cases, what you think is strangely alien to facts because it's always self-serving. You want to pretend and feel good.

Daydream while you both can.

I love when people pretend to know what Mueller is investigating...
