For ANYONE still pissed off about Comey's actions a week before the election, don't read this.

Mueller probe might have to ‘go dark’ during midterm elections under pressure from Trump: report

The Mueller probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and associated crimes may have to “go dark” during the mid-term elections or risk being shut down entirely, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“Though Mr. Mueller doesn’t face any specific legal deadline, the fall midterms amount to a political one,” the paper reported, citing unnamed prosecutors and politicians. “He will reach a point this summer when Justice Department habits dictate he would have to go dark so he doesn’t appear to be trying to sway voters’ decisions, which would be at odds with Justice Department guidelines for prosecutors.”

The idea is that news bombshells or further indictments could be seen as interfering in the campaign—like former FBI director James Comey did in 2016 when he broke news about a laptop with some of Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails just 11 days before polls opened.

“Any action by Mr. Mueller that implicates or exonerates Mr. Trump or his associates in working with Russia or obstructing justice could go a long way to determining whether Democrats take control of one or both houses of Congress,” the report said.

2. Mueller's is a on-going investigation......

and there's nothing news breaking about it like Comey's Hillary email farce. Totally different!

3. Well, It's Not Like He's Been Giving Us Weekly Reports

Can any of us truthfully say that they could pick his voice out in a crowd? I sure couldn't.

5. I could. He has a distinct voice.

This is his speech at his granddaughter's high school graduation.
