    since the investigation is winding down my guess is that Mueller feels that pinching Trump or any member of his family is out of his purview.

    I don't expect that to be the case, but I'd be relieved to learn that Bob Mueller looked into it and that was what he concluded.
    It's a near certainty, so be reassured. The Mueller team has leaked like a sieve throughout the investigation, so we would know already if he had anything.

    What I want to know is where they the investigation off. In theory, the investigation should be carefully apolitical in who was under investigation. Given the composition of the investigation team, that's highly unlikely. However, exactly where inquiries cut off should be informative.

    The Mueller team is the yin to trumps yang. As trump plays politics with daily tweets, literally hundreds of tweets that could be classified as intimidation, gaslighting, attacks on judiciary, and ugly directionless outright lies trying to sway public opinion. In contrast Mueller always, almost without exception, stays silent. "Mueller’s only public statement as special counsel came on May 17, 2017, the day he was appointed: “I accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability.”

    While trump team leaks, Mueller team has been remarkably, even historically tight lipped and invisible considering size and scope of this case, letting indictments speak for themselves. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...=.332c213fd353

    As clownlike, immoral, and embarrassing trump team has been in handling this, Mueller team has been unerringly professional, effective, and efficient.

    You forget, in J’s Bizarro World, Mueller is the leaker and Trump is tight-lipped. It’s hard to understand sometimes.

    please give examples of this leaky sieve

    Damn, what a boring speech.

    Trump's not tight-lipped. Just the opposite.

    Are you actually taking the position that Mueller's team did not leak, for example, George Papadopoulos' name? For anopther, why was there a news crew ready to record the pre-dawn raid of Stone's home. Everything the investigation ever turned up on Papadopoulos, Flynn, Manafort, etc. was tipped to the media ahead of time, When I used a sieve as an example. I was being conservative. There have been many more leaks than holes in a sieve.

    The silence about the SOTU is deafening.

    Poll numbers are off the chart favorable. Pelosi did Trump a big favor by making a spectacle of this speech.
