Robert Mueller's Biggest 'Bombshell' Indictment Just Got Dismissed With Prejudice

Well, this is embarrassing, although not unexpected if you’ve been following this case.

The Mueller investigation produced several indictments, most of which centered on supposedly lying to the FBI. Figures like Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos took center stage, having not been proven to have done anything wrong in regards to Russia, but being relentlessly targeted because there had to be some scalps taken.

But there was one case that was said to have proven the Mueller investigation to not be a waste of time. It involved the indictment of a Russian company called “Concord.” Mueller claimed that said company was a front to conduct a full-scale information war against the United States during the 2016 election. This was supposed to prove the nefarious “election interference” we’d all heard so much about. When Mueller dropped the indictment, the media gasped and claimed vindication. Breathless editorials were written at record pace.

Well, it looks like the only real shot Mueller took just missed its target.

If the Mueller investigation wasn’t already proven to have been a total waste of time and money, this certainly seals it. Tens of millions of dollars and a country paralyzed for years to have their only case against the Russians dismissed with prejudice. Meanwhile, there was never much of any evidence that Concord did the things they were accused of. Mueller had essentially repackaged some old information the FBI had already dealt with to bring about the indictment and it came nowhere near holding up in actual court.

For more information on Concord and the Mueller investigation, be sure to check here and here. Hopefully, some lessons are learned by the DOJ and the partisans who attempted this nonsense. I doubt it though.
