Patrick: Spongebob! . . . My legs are frozen solid . . . you'll have to cut them off with a saw!
Spongebob: I can't do that Patrick.
Patrick: Why not!?
Spongebob: Because I already had to cut off my own arms!

Its the perfect metaphor for the empty nothingburger cellophane wrapper Mueller is bound to open up with great flourish!

A Riddle:

Q: How can you tell there is no anti-Trump bombshell?

A: Because we haven't seen it in the NYT yet

Politico: Trump Critics Should Prepare For Disappointment With Mueller Report


It would be hilarious if the Mueller Report turned out to be the biggest flop since Rachel Maddow's big "Trump tax returns' show.

Well, I'd like to see the Trump tax returns. Just like you should. ;)

There is no legal requirement for him to do so.

Trump passed all the Constitutional requirements for being a Presidential candidate.
Trump won the election of 2016 by receiving the most votes in the Electoral College.
Trump is President.

Some of us would have liked to have seen Hillary Clinton's emails (which she was required to have on a government server) but she intentionally housed them on her own personal server.

In the case of the Clintons, the more useful thing is their tax return AFTER they left office. Ditto Hussein.

Anyone want to guess how much Trump was paid by NBC for "The Apprentice"?...........................................................$213 million over 14 years

He gave that up to be Prezzy and we are supposed to believe it is a scheme to get rich? Jeez, Nemo, that is pathetic.

Doubling Down on Mueller
What will Democrats (and Jeff Flake) do if the probe finds no collusion evidence?


By Kimberley A. Strassel

November 15, 2018, 7:07 pm ET

With the midterms over, Washington returns to its regular programming: Russia. Trump critics should consider the risk of betting their political fortunes on special counsel Robert Mueller.

The Mueller probe has lost its political potency, as Democrats acknowledged on the midterm trail. They didn’t win House seats by warning of Russian collusion. They didn’t even talk about it. Most voters don’t care, or don’t care to hear about it. A CNN exit poll found 54% of respondents think the Russia probe is “politically motivated”; a 46% plurality disapprove of Mr. Mueller’s handling of it.

That hasn’t stopped Democrats from fixating on it since the election, in particular when President Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and named Matthew Whitaker as a temporary replacement. The left now insists the appointment is unconstitutional or that because Mr. Whitaker once voiced skepticism on the Russia-collusion narrative, he is unfit to oversee the Mueller investigation and must recuse himself.

The joke here is that neither Mr. Whitaker nor anybody else is likely to exercise any authority over Mr. Mueller—and more’s the pity. The probe has meandered along for 18 months, notching records for leaks and derivative prosecutions, though all indications are it has accomplished little by way of its initial mandate.

As a practical matter, Mr. Mueller should have been brought to heel some time ago. As a political matter, that won’t happen. The administration has always understood that such a move would provoke bipartisan political blowback, ignite a new “coverup” scandal, and maybe trigger impeachment. It’s even more unlikely officials would risk those consequences now, as Mr. Mueller is said to be wrapping up.

Democrats know this, as does the grandstanding Sen. Jeff Flake. Yet they demand a Whitaker recusal and are again pushing legislation to “protect” the special counsel’s probe. Senate Republicans rightly blocked that bill this week, partly on grounds that it is likely unconstitutional. They also made the obvious point that if Mr. Trump intended to fire Mr. Mueller, he’d have done so months ago and wouldn’t need to ax Mr. Sessions to do it. And while the president tweets ceaseless criticism of the probe, he has never threatened to end it.
Democrats are nonetheless doubling down on the probe for political advantage. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared members of his caucus will demand that language making it more difficult to fire Mr. Mueller be included in a spending bill that needs to pass before the end of the current legislative session. Mr. Flake is offering an assist, saying that he will block any judicial nominees in committee until a Mueller protection bill gets a Senate floor vote. Over in the House, incoming Democratic committee chairmen, led by soon-to-be Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, are vowing an investigation blitz focused on collusion with Russia.

Mr. Schumer’s last shutdown—a year ago—was a bust even though it was waged over the emotionally compelling issue of Dreamers, illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as children. He now proposes shutting down the government over a probe few people outside of Washington care about. Mitch McConnell should be so lucky.

Mr. Flake, should he run for president, will struggle to explain to conservative voters his obstruction of Trump judicial nominees, who’ll be confirmed in 2019 anyway when the Republicans expand their Senate majority.

Democrats’ other problem is that this strategy hinges in large degree on an expectation that Mr. Mueller ultimately finds something. There’s no reason to believe he has turned up any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.

Sure, he’s secured convictions against longtime Beltway bandits for long-ago lobbying. He’s squeezed the ole standby lying-to-investigators plea out of a few targets. He’s indicted a squad of Russian trolls, who will never be brought to trial and who even Mr. Mueller’s office admits had nothing to do with the Trump team. And while it seems likely his report to the Justice Department will criticize Mr. Trump, it’s improbable it will contain proof of collusion.

And then? The president will have a field day. He will claim vindication and mercilessly drive home that the investigation was a waste and a witch hunt. And he will have a point. Two years of Democratic hyperbole will be undercut by the special counsel they’ve held out as the ultimate sleuth. They’ll have to decide whether to deride Mr. Mueller’s findings as insufficient to justify continuing their own probes.

Maybe Mr. Mueller has something. We’ll see. But if the reporting is correct that he’s wound up high and dry, Democrats will end up there with him.

Write to kim@wsj.com.



The gnashing of teeth by Dem politicians and the MSM will be a joy to witness.

Also, Mr. Flake’s 2020 Presidential aspirations will be stillborn.
