Mueller Won’t Issue Final Report, Will Say Nothing…

The veteran criminal defense attorney who headed President Donald Trump’s legal team during a crucial stretch of the special counsel investigation believes the entire affair will end in silence from special counsel Robert Mueller, and called the massive two-year probe into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign “a terrible waste of time.”

 

“I don’t think there’ll be a report,” John Dowd told ABC News in a wide-ranging interview for the premiere episode of “The Investigation,” a new podcast focused on the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller. “I will be shocked if anything regarding the president is made public, other than ‘We’re done.’”

 

“I know exactly what [Mueller] has,” Dowd said. “I know exactly what every witness said, what every document said. I know exactly what he asked. And I know what the conclusion or the result is,” he said, describing the sweeping efforts by Trump’s legal team to assess the case by speaking to dozens of witnesses. Based on that knowledge, Dowd said, “there’s no basis. There’s no exposure. It’s been a terrible waste of time.”

 

Dowd described those indictments as “What I call nickel-dime process crimes. I ran a strike force. I ran big corruption cases. I didn’t go around, picking scabs and just making any case I could make. If there was a petty case, I shifted it to someone else. I didn’t do it. And that’s where I disagree with Bob.”

 

Dowd suggested during the interview that he channeled the frustration the president has displayed for months about the probe, and those running it. He believes it should have ended last year, and he was surprised that Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein instead allowed it to mushroom.

 

Dowd said that at one point after Comey appeared before Congress, he wrote to Rosenstein to ask for the Justice Department to investigate whether the former FBI director lied in his testimony.

 

“He blew me off,” Dowd said. “That’s not leadership. That’s not accountability. … We did it in writing. We did it politely. We did it confidentially. And he just blew us off. So, I lost all respect for Rod Rosenstein.”

If so, it was not a big waste of time, they spent the time persecuting the president, hurting his agenda, and covering up massive crimes the deep state committed. RR & RM are part of the conspiracy. They were attempting a coup.

I agree wholeheartedly.

Now nutbag Schiff will start his fraud of investigations. It’s disgusting.

Millions of tax dollars wasted. They all knew there was never any ‘collusion;’ the monies were spent to trash a fine President.

As for ‘shitforbrains’ Shiff – is he spending his own money to ‘investigate?’

It is exactly what I thought would happen even though I did not know the name of the sacrificial lamb at the time. That is what politician’s do when they try to legislate rule of law. They pick out a second best person to carry the sentence punishment out on. I hope when Trump gets the Wall business done that he will look into pardoning all of Mueller’s victims. I believe that fruit of the tainted tree would be a legal argument, and of course Trump as President can pardon a stupid turkey if he wants to.

let him go after it. there is no more there then there was in this investigation. these AG’s seem to think everyone is scared of them. Trump actually enjoys beating them at their own game. crap is crap, no matter who is pushing it. and they aren’t used to people pushing back. they love it when pussies cave. thats not going to happen here.

Schiff responded earlier today, commenting, “Well, we can never be too careful now, can we? We can’t just have a billionaire president who stole the election running around free as a bird, now can we? Mueller just didn’t investigated deeply enough. I just know there’s a pony in there someplace. Like his tax returns, maybe. Or girls he dated in college. This is about the rule of law. Right thinking Democrats demand justice for keeping Hillary out of the White House. There will be an accounting. You mark my words.”

“Besides, I don’t like the President much.”

Not only is “Right Thinking Democrats” an oxymoron, it’s also a double entendre too!

Is the table is now turned, and we finally see Trumps hand in next steps to turn WA Swamp upside down or does this BS quietly fade away. Nothing on mainstream news about this.

I think everyone with have a brain can understand if nothing is done and these traitors aren’t burned at the stake then we’ve lost more than anything else because it will happen again and again

Mueller and Rosenstein both need to do jail time for screwing the public out of millions of tax dollars when they both knew damned well from day 1 this was total BS. But this shit will NEVER stop until heads start to roll. If I was Trump I’d sue these jerks into oblivion!

Once again a multi tiered justice system. Why with the fake dossier was known to Comey and Struck because Ore told them where it came from and who paid for it. And they chose not to investigate it or the Russian collusion wwith Clinton (speaking fees paid to Bubba after the russian uranium deal went through. Muller is team Hillary and that will be his legacy.

“So, I lost all respect for Rod Rosenstein.”

The mistake was having any respect for him in the first place.

Wow, just wow. I wonder if there will ever be any real justice served. At the very least, there should be very public and repeated apologies to President Trump… and they should all publicly and repeatedly confess that this whole thing was a fraud, because they wanted Hillary to win and Trump removed from office if he won. If no one goes to jail this is the very LEAST they could do.

This Barr guy is only going to shut down the Mueller machine as peacefully as he can. He’s not going to create any waves by going after Hillary. Very sad ending unless Trump wins re-election and ORDERS a special counsel himself.

Many months ago, Rosenstein revealed that he has assigned to Mueller the task of investigating the Trump campaign, and he, Rosenstein, would retain the task of investigating Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

I’ve seen no evidence that Rosenstein has investigated anything Clinton.

this witch-hunt was to kill time and distract from the real crime as the left was looking for dirt on DJT at the expense of taxpayers……If there was no crime or collusion which isn’t a crime then everyone Muleface has charged with lying should be released …..

This is why Schiff is starting all over, they know Mueller had nothing but the Dem base wants blood. Listen to what Harris said a few days ago, basically that “we dont care what Mueller has, we know the Pres is guilty and we’re going to get him, guilty or not.”

Gosh Mr. Dowd can you put 2 and 2 together? Rod blew you off and???? and nothing. The Barry, Hillary, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe, Strozk, Page, Ohr, Ohr, Steel, cabal got away with it because they are part of the deep state that rules this country. We live in a banana republic and nothing not even Trump can change that. The sheeple are weak and lazy, the marxists are not, hence we have what we have.

The Russian collusion is only a front to cover up their true motive. The purpose of the investigation was to destroy evidence what the Obama regime did in his 8 years reign of plotting against the United States including the murder of Justice Scalia. I have no doubt Scalia was murdered.

If they had attempted this kind of a coup, and make no mistake, that’s exactly what this was, against the president of any other country in the world, it would have ended with them and their families fleeing for their lives under cover of darkness, or all of them hanging from the lampposts of the capitol.

Say Fellow Citizens, The Macaco was sleeping and did not want to be disturbed when the Sons of Muhammed stormed the U.S. Embassy. Crooked Hillary was guilty for abandoning and prevented Special Forces to rescue the U.S. Ambassador in Benghazi and then burned all the evidence. One more thing: There are over 25 million Illegal Aliens in the United States who take advantage of the Marihuana legal market to open their own business. I know for a fact, that every single day, Corrupted Attorneys arrange for Drug Dealers to open a new “Pancho Restaurant” every single day in Aurora, Colorado.
