Lest we forget, it bears repeating that Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to take over the counterintelligence investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Yet it appears there was no such collusion. It is long past time for Mueller to wrap it up, yet he soldiers on with some other object in mind. What might it be? I offer my clue in the denomination of the probe as the Mueller Switch Project.
The latest evidence for the proposition is today’s New York Times story by Michael Schmidt and Maggie Haberman, “Mueller Examining Trump’s Tweets in Wide-Ranging Obstruction Inquiry.” I hesitate to say that we are reaching the clown car stage of the Mueller extravaganza, but if the Times story is to be taken at face value we might be getting there. Rudy Giuliani responds with uncharacteristic understatement in the comment quoted by the Times: “If you’re going to obstruct justice, you do it quietly and secretly, not in public.”
