Now that it’s looking like the Mueller report will probably be a big nothing burger, some people in the media are already acting like an absence of evidence of collusion doesn’t matter.
Do they think people haven’t heard them screaming about collusion for two years?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Mueller Already Found ‘Quite a Bit’ on Trump
MSNBC host Katy Tur suggested Thursday that it does not matter whether Robert Mueller’s investigation finds evidence of direct collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia because the special counsel has already uncovered “quite a bit” of dirt on the president.
“Let’s just put on the screen everybody who’s been found guilty or already indicted in the Mueller investigations. Lots of faces, lots of pleas, and lots of indictments,” Tur said, pointing out that Trump affiliates such as Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn have been found guilty of various crimes.
“They’ve already come up with quite a bit, regardless of whether or not there is direct collusion or conspiracy found between Donald Trump and his campaign, and the Russians,” Tur added.
Other panelists agreed with Tur, pointing out that Mueller may already have significant evidence against Trump that he has not yet released. NBC News correspondent Pete Williams noted that “there is no such regulation” requiring that Mueller immediately tell Congress if he finds something that might merit impeachment.

I thought it did matter. Did it always not matter, or does it only not matter now because she was wrong? https://t.co/UYg0VCl7Mv
