Mueller Knew There Was No Collusion a Year or Two Ago, But Said Nothing At All.
Now He's Snitty Over What He Says Is "Confusion" Over His Report.

If he feared public confusion, why did he not issue an interim finding a year or two ago and tell people there was no Russian collusion?

The Daily Caller notes the many other times Mueller permitted the public to be confused, and didn't bother complaining -- confusion always sown by Democrats and probably his own staffers leaking to them. (Falsely!)

Special counsel Robert Mueller said he is concerned about "public confusion" over his Russia report in a series of communications with Attorney General William Barr that came to light this week, solidifying the narrative that Barr mishandled the report and intentionally misled the public about his findings.

Meanwhile, Mueller stood by for years as the media and Democratic politicians made mistake after mistake about key collusion and obstruction accusations, choosing to intervene only once, when a false Buzzfeed report threatened to result in impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

The FBI suspected as early as summer 2017 that the Steele dossier was flawed, yet Mueller chose not to intervene as the media published story after story containing Trump-Russia collusion "bombshells" that turned out to be wrong. Aside from correcting a Buzzfeed report that he had grounds to indict Trump in January of this year, Mueller's office was mum.

The Daily Caller News Foundation put together a list of some of these reports. For example, Mueller's findings contained no evidence to back up a widely-read report in The Guardian that claimed Paul Manafort visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange around the time he joined Trump's campaign. And his findings contradicted an explosive CNN report about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, which claimed Trump gave it the green light, knowing it was with a Russian promising dirt on the Hillary Clinton campaign.
