The swamp waters that slosh against the banks of the Mueller River this time of year are awful murky, and may get murkier still in the weeks to come.
You see, there’s a feeling ’round these parts that ol’ Special Counsel Mueller is going to lay low between Labor Day and the 2018 midterm elections, and with good reason. Should the investigators strike too near to the election date itself, they could swing the vote by either galvanizing or demoralizing one side or its opposition.
It’s a tricky play, to be certain. But it’s also precisely why Chuck Todd is predicting something wild for Friday.
“Here’s what I’ve learned about Bob Mueller,” Todd said. “Not a single person that has known him, been with him, worked with him, wouldn’t say that he would have ended this investigation if there was no collusion. He would have already ended this investigation.”
“We can’t tell that, though, until he tells us,” Republican strategist Brad Todd said.
The debate continued, with Todd dropping his prediction ever so bluntly.
“I think he knows, more than anything, he keeps quiet between Labor Day and Election Day,” Chuck Todd said.
“I’m not missing work tomorrow,” he continued. “I wouldn’t miss work tomorrow. Tomorrow is the last business day of the pre-Labor Day to Election Day window.”
So far, Robert Mueller has been a bit of a bust for the democrats who hired him, with only some old bank charges on a couple of former Trump acquaintances to speak of.
Oh, and then there’s the issue of the American people growing ever more impatient with the entire debacle.
