At this point I think it is fair to ask whether there is any doubt of this? Mueller has been allowed to roam far and wide for a long time. He has been given the run of the political plain. Now however one wonders if Mueller and his investigation (and at this point we are not saying they are) are just hurting the country and that “justice” isn’t really the goal at all here. Ahem.

A federal judge on Friday harshly rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – suggesting they lied about the scope of the investigation, are seeking “unfettered power” and are more interested in bringing down the president.
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s team. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”
Further, Ellis demanded to see the unredacted “scope memo,” a document outlining the scope of the special counsel’s Russia probe that congressional Republicans have also sought.
