Well, this didn’t take long. A few short weeks ago, for a few brief moments, Robert Mueller was deemed by Trump to be an “honorable man.” Now, he’s back to heading up a team of Trump haters and angry democrats.
Looks like Bob Mueller’s team of 13 Trump Haters & Angry Democrats are illegally leaking information to the press while the Fake News Media make up their own stories with or without sources – sources no longer matter to our corrupt & dishonest Mainstream Media, they are a Joke!

In other words, the investigation led by a lifelong Republican whose conclusions Trump has claimed fully exonerate him…is attacking him, and to do so, they are leaking to the press, but instead of using the actual Mueller sources, the press is making up sources that don't exist

One thing that Trump doesn’t understand at all, is that the words “anonymous source” doesn’t mean that the source is unknown to the media outlet. It merely means that the source chooses to remain anonymous due to the sensitivity of the subject being discussed. Media outlets know their sources, that situation is as old as the hills and twice as dusty. But Trump seems to have “anonymous” in this context confused with people who call the cops anonymously to report a crime. What he does not know about how the world works would fill the Encyclopedia Galactica.
And of course, the question is begged: What’s the problem? If Trump is fully exonerated as claimed, then that will surely be revealed, will it not, when the report is finally disseminated? Of course you know the answer to that. If the Mueller report did, in fact, fully exonerate Trump, it would be published in full right now, no redactions, and Sean Hannity would be quoting from it every day. It would be the new Republican Bible.
Trump’s scared to death. He knows what he did and he knows where this is going, despite William Barr’s whitewash. Oh, well, the exoneration fantasy was nice while it lasted, right? Barr will do his damnedest to keep as much secret for as long as possible, but it won’t last forever. All that Barr is accomplishing by protecting Trump is the ruination of his own reputation.
