WaPo: Trump *not a target* of Mueller Probe

Michael Ahrens - April 4, 2018

After investigating for nearly a year, The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump is not a target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. That means that after all this time, Mueller and his entire team of lawyers have still not gathered enough evidence for Trump to become a target. That’s huge news.

The notion of Trump not being charged is unfathomable for The Resistance. Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer has already lit tens of millions of dollars on fire, just so he can watch himself read doomsday-esque messages on TV, the launching pad for his (joke of a) presidential bid.

Panicked Democrats know the vast majority of Americans disagree with Steyer, but it’s not stopping the billionaire from demanding that 5,171 candidates pledge their loyalty to his baseless effort. Democrats also face the looming specter of Steyer-sponsored debates that will undoubtedly press candidates on impeachment. 

With news that Trump is not a target of Mueller’s probe, Steyer’s impeachment ultimatum is all the more unpalatable for a Democratic Party that’s still struggling to find something positive to run on.

The Democratic Party's civil war between its far-left progressives and moderates is about to get more intense. Tom Steyer's Need To Impeach organization just mailed 5,171 candidates a guide to impeachment to reference while campaigning.

"Neither the establishment nor Democratic leadership is going to be providing this type of information to federal candidates," said Kevin Mack, lead strategist at Need To Impeach. But that's the issue: Democrats increasingly believe moderate platforms and candidates — not progressives calling to remove the president — will help them take back the House of Representatives in November.

Big picture: That thinking is reflected in everything from the DCCC helping candidates fight for more than 100 GOP-held seats this cycle to the topics candidates are advised to talk about, like the economy and health care. Impeachment is not on the list of talking points, yet all Democratic, Independent, and third-party candidates running for office in 2018 will receive an impeachment guide.

But D.C. Democrats have privately complained about what they think is an unhelpful, out-of-touch strategy from Steyer. To add to it, Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi have publicly called it a distraction (though Steyer, like his team, thinks they're "dead wrong.")

What they're saying: "One of the worst things we can do for the cause of getting rid of Donald Trump is tell the American public that we've already concluded he should be impeached before the Mueller investigation shows us its findings," said a Democratic strategist.
