Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 23, 2019

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III turned in his long-anticipated report on the Russia investigation on Friday, but did not recommend any more indictments in the political and legal saga that has threatened President Trump's tenure in the White House and is likely to cloud his legacy.

Mueller delivered a confidential report to Atty. Gen. William Barr, the Justice Department announced. A Barr spokeswoman described it as "comprehensive" but provided no other details. The special counsel's decision to wrap up the investigation without further criminal charges probably brings a measure of relief to the president and his inner circle after nearly two years under scrutiny by the former FBI director.

No Americans were charged by Mueller with conspiring with Moscow to influence the 2016 presidential campaign, the original focus of the criminal and counter-intelligence investigation, much to the ire of Democrats banking on such a result.

The Mueller investigation is complete and this is a simple fact that will never go away: not one single American was charged, indicted or convicted for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election - not even a low-level volunteer. The number is zero.

"There are other possibilities as well. It's possible, for example, that Mueller is not proceeding against certain defendants other than the president because he has referred them to other prosecutorial offices; some of these referrals are already public, and it's reasonable to expect there may be other referrals too.

In this iteration, what is ending here is not the investigation, merely the portion of the investigation Mueller chose to retain for himself. It's possible also that Mueller is finished because he has determined that while the evidence would support a prosecution of the president, he is bound by the Justice Department's long-standing position that the president is not amenable to criminal process."

SDNY, EDVA, DC, state AGs, and multiple Congressional committees are busy with what Mueller handed off.

This is an incredibly pure piece of Russian propaganda.
