While there has been literally zero evidence collected of any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is still getting a paycheck for some reason.
Mueller, who was a controversial choice to head up the investigation initially, has been at it for nearly a year now. In that time, the former FBI chief has filed a couple of extremely weak procedural charges against some Trump associates, but has yet to provide the nation with even the slightest semblance of a collusion narrative whatsoever. This was his task, mind you…not the bizarre-o world, all-encompassing fishing expedition that he seems to be on now.
It has been seven months since Mueller’s appointment as special counsel, and well over a year since the FBI began investigating possible Trump “collusion” in Russia’s 2016 campaign interference. A few important things have become clear. The most apparent is that Mueller has no prosecutable collusion case.

This is clear from the three sets of charges Mueller has filed so far. Notwithstanding the frisson for Never Trumpers who’ve morphed into Impeach Trumpers, more-objective observers deduced from the charges that Mueller is probably about where James Comey was a year ago. Between Trump’s November 2016 election and his firing of the former FBI director in May (the explosive event that triggered Mueller’s appointment), Comey repeatedly assured the new president that he was not a criminal suspect.
