Did you forget to switch out of selfie mode?

Idiotic in that if Mueller were to leak at this point of his investigation, he'd do it in an unattributable manner. Further down the line he might indeed attributally leak if it serves his investigation .

In the fulfillment of his duties, Mueller would much rather have no leaks, news coverage, Trump rants or parallel civil lawsuits. The only things we know about what he is doing comes from legal proceedings. That's why it's profoundly ignorant and premature to insist, as Whell does, that Mueller hasn't yet found any evidence of collusion. We simply don't know for sure what he has found other than what he has needed to reveal in court thus far (and that's exactly how he wants it).

Your closing parenthetical appears to imply that Mueller holds you in his confidence.

Not when a might is scored inbetween. More of that backassward California thinking.

My condolences on your speaker choice. A buddy had Scintillas back-in-the-day.

Edit: Forgot the obvious (quite an oversight for me), 1 + 1 = 2.

No, it just shows I'm up to speed on the real news and not the fake news and propaganda that Whell slurps so voraciously (and that you seem to be warming up to).

The Dotard speaks:

President Donald Trump isn’t undercutting the FBI or the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation by demanding a probe into the use of a government informant to gain information on the Trump campaign before the 2016 election.

He’s just “cleaning everything up,” he told reporters on Wednesday.

“No, no. We’re not undercutting, We’re cleaning everything up,” trump said. “This was a terrible situation. What we’re doing is we’re cleaning everything up. It’s so important. What I’m doing is a service to this country.”
