FBI spook Robert Mueller closed up his “nothing burger” today, formally ending his special counsel, and resigning from the Department of Justice during a brief 10-minute press conference in front of reporters in Washington D.C.
“I’m speaking out today because our investigation is complete,” Mueller said. “The Attorney General has made the report on our investigation largely public. We are formally closing the special counsel’s office, and as well, I am resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”
Mueller noted that “it is important for the office’s written work to speak for itself.”
He noted that Russians did use sophisticated attacks on our electoral infrastructure, crediting them with giving information to WikiLeaks, and damaging the candidacy of a particular presidential candidate – obviously referring to Hillary Clinton. He also credited some social media posts by Russians for influencing the election.
Mueller talked about obstruction as well, giving a vague diatribe against obstruction but not implicating Trump or anyone close to him as being guilty of the crime.
“We did not… make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime,” Mueller said.
He noted that charging the President for a criminal act was “not an option we could consider.”
Mueller reported no illegal or unethical behavior from Attorney General Bill Barr, who Democrats have criticized for alleged wrongdoing with some even suggesting impeachment.
Mueller claimed that Barr released more of his report than he would have liked, demonstrating the AG’s commitment to transparency.
“We appreciate that the Attorney General made the report largely public, and I certainly do not question the Attorney General’s good faith in that decision,” he said.
Mueller claimed that this would be his final statement on the matter, his report “speaks for itself,” and he would not want to appear before Congress to beat this dead horse any further.
“Beyond what I have said here today and what is contained in our written work, I do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the Justice Department and Congress,” Mueller said before noting he would not take questions from reporters.
Mueller thanked various attorneys and bureaucrats for their assistance in conducting the “fair and independent” special counsel investigation with the “highest integrity.”
He closed by reiterating that Russians did in fact interfere with the elections, although he could not prove it had any impact on the election results and could not implicate Trump being involved with the operation in any manner.
Mueller’s words, while stopping short of clearing Trump of crimes, will be damning to the ‘Never Trump’ resistance. The Russian collusion witch hunt has officially come to an end, and AG Barr’s credibility is strengthened as his office, led by bulldog U.S. Attorney John Dunham, investigates the investigators.

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller
A nothingburger all along.
Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.
Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.
The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.
The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.
The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.
“Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.”
It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.
Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
