As Robert Mueller’s witch hunt (or as it’s called in the media, “Special Counsel“) investigation has been going on for over a year, and despite all the headlines, it has yet to find any collusion between the Trump administration and Russia.

Yes, there have been indictments of Russians who interfered in the election – but a grand total of zero colluded with the Trump campaign while doing so. As for the Trump campaign members indicted – there isn’t a single indictment that stems from allegations of Russian collusion. Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos pled guilty to lying to the FBI, while Paul Manafort and Rick Gates face charges of tax evasion and money laundering.

Again – absolutely nothing to do with Russia. There’s a saying that if a cop follows anyone for 500 miles, they’ll find an excuse to pull them over, and that’s clearly the case here. As the Counsel continues, some wrongdoing may be uncovered, but nothing to do with the Counsel’s stated goal. If that’s not a sign of a witch hunt, I don’t know what is.

Regardless of the reality of the Special Counsel as a politically motivated “investigation,” the media (particularly CNN) can’t get enough of it. President Donald Trump sent out a tweetstorm this morning, calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Special Counsel.

He also quotes Alan Dershowitz in his first two tweets.

Then he turns his attention to Sessions and cited that fact that every lawyer on the Counsel that’s donated to political candidates have donated to Democrats.

Trump’s tweet comes before the trial of his ex-campaign chief Paul Manafort entered its second day in federal court in Virginia. As previously alluded to, Manafort is being tried by Mueller’s team of lawyers. Sessions recused himself from the investigation in March, before Mueller took over, and there’s speculation that Trump wants Sessions to resign. Back in May, Trump posted a quote from a Trey Gowdy “Fox & Friends” appearance to his Twitter, in which Gowdy speculated that Trump wished he appointed someone other than Sessions.

He then added his own brief message to the end: “And I wish I did!”

Given the rocky relationship between the two, it’s anybody’s guess whether or not Sessions will grant Trump his request in ending the Special Counsel. But given that the word “collusion” doesn’t not a word that appears in any criminal statute that Mueller is examining, it would be the right thing to do. If there was any real evidence of Russian collusion, it would’ve already been uncovered long ago.
