The Mueller Investigation has finally come to an end. There will be more talk about in the coming weeks as people pick apart the final report but it’s over. There was no collusion and there will be no more indictments.
The Associated Press reports:
Mueller concludes Russia-Trump probe with no new indictments
Special counsel Robert Mueller closed his long and contentious Russia investigation with no new charges Friday, ending the probe that has cast a dark shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency but launching a fresh wave of political battles over the still-confidential findings.
The report’s details remained a mystery, accessible to only a handful of Justice Department officials while Attorney General William Barr prepared to release the “principal conclusions” soon. But the closure of the 22-month probe without additional indictments by Mueller was welcome news to some in Trump’s orbit who had feared a final round of charges could ensnare more Trump associates, including members of the president’s family.
The Justice Department said the report was delivered by a security officer Friday afternoon to the office of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and then it went to Barr. Word of the delivery triggered reactions across Washington, including Democrats’ demands that it be quickly released to the public and Republicans’ contentions that it ended two years of wasted time and money.
This is a great point:
In case you're wondering what's in the Mueller report, after two years of deranged conspiracy-mongering about how Trump committed treason and stole an election that belonged to Hillary Clinton, the report was quietly dumped on a Friday afternoon in the middle of March Madness.

So is this:
It was always a HOAX.
It was spread w millions of dollars through a massive network of hack journalists who became conspiracy theorists & partisan operatives.
It was indulged by lunatics who didn’t care about what would happen if they accused a president of being a traitor.

After today, there can be no question that there are many journalists- and entire news organizations- that should never be taken seriously as nonpartisan sources of information ever again
No collusion. Deal with it.

No Collusion: The Special Counsel Investigation is Done and Mueller Isn’t Indicting President Trump
Attorney General Bill Barr announced late Friday afternoon Robert Mueller has officially completely his Special Counsel investigation into the 2016 presidential election. The report has not been submitted to Capitol Hill and will not be immediately released to the public. It will undergo further review by Barr, who will determine what information — if any — to release.
However, the Department of Justice is confirming Mueller is finished with his indictments. This means, to Democrats’ dismay, President Trump will not be indicted by the Special Counsel for collusion, conspiracy or any other crime.
“Special Counsel Mueller not recommending any further indictments,” Fox News reports from a senior DOJ official.
What will Democrats waste time on now?
