Now that the midterm elections are over (almost) and the investigation into Russian and Trump election tampering has found nothing, who wants to bet that it will end soon. With nothing to go on, they can't drag this out till the next election,....I say it ends within a month.

This 'investigation' will morph until the established goal is achieved.

It will continue until the House is rid of camera hogs in the Democratic party and never-Trumpers are voted out of the Senate.

I is hard to disagree with you, but it will end, it will fade out, they will shut it down. Now it is very likely that other pointless and false snipe hunts will arise and that this one will end "open ended". Meaning that they will conclude with "We reserve the right to reopen this investigation......." BUT it's end is in sight.

We must not forget that the pressure is on from both sides to get results or shut it down. These are harsh and stressful working conditions that could cause people to resign from the investigation team. Even the people who used to pat this team on the back, is extremely impatient and want results. They are becoming less and less friendly to the team.
Then there are replacement options for the members on the team, their job is on the line. The replacement employees will no doubt be more open to the will of the POTUS.

The 'Muller Investigation' may very well end soon, but when the House gavel changes hands there is a new sheriff in town. If Elijah Cummings becomes chairman of Oversight, "You ain't seen nothing yet! "

I have my doubts on it ending until Trump is no longer in the White House. If they interpret their midterm gains that gave them control in the house as a result that was heavily influenced by that investigation, then I think they will continue to beat the dead horse. The lingering gloom of the investigation is something they will want hovering over Trumps head in his next run. Imagine the "bombshell revelations" that will be released like clockwork to continually blow holes in his runway. They will be fabrications of course, twisted as to give an impression that is just not true but that their supporters will gobble up and parrot across social media, TV and radio.

I could be wrong. It's entirely possible they let it go and double down on many other things such as the meme I saw earlier today. It was something about cuts in social security or something like that but the President can sped 200 million sending military to the boarder for a political stunt. Yeah, shouldn't that be "in response to a political stunt? Since... Soro's funding and all.

*Edit: NM, I can't find a link to the meme that works.

It isn't going to end! The Kavanaugh hearing was a precursor to the next two years. Democrats don't have anything to run on but the crap they can stir up while they own the House. Think back to Henry Waxman,

It won't end because it's an opened ended way to keep people in line.

Senator Joe Blow speaks out the wrong way, suddenly the investigation "stumbles upon" something about him while they are digging. Call him in for an interview, and suddenly he's lied to the investigators and sitting in Prison.

The Special Counsel's probe of the 2016 national elections is likely to continue until Mueller's investigators are able to find and interview (the just named) Scott Free.

It could depend on how many people worldwide are living under the name of "Scott Free."

A very brief YouTube video segment explains:

It will last as long as those "investigating" are drawing a paycheck. Only in DC can political hacks/attorneys can keep beating the dead horse and have the taxpayers foot the bill.

The President's latest spelling misadventure on Twitter--"No Smocking Gun"--twice in succession--had the Twitter-world freshly abuzz. Here's two of my faves:





Credit to Ron Dicker, for the Huffington Post:

But he did spell "gun"correctly. Unlike Woody Allen's movie character of old:

Oh wait... this was "How much longer... the investigation will last?"

I'll have to get back to "you", on that one.

That is my thoughts too. This investigation wasn't supposed to take long, but the only reason why it moves at a flatline pulse speed, is because this team gets paid several millions of dollars a month from the backs of taxpayers, for trivial infractions that everyone would be caught lying if investigated by this team. Mueller is known as a black and white "gotcha" on some trivial remark or response that wasn't exactly verbatim of something you said two or more years ago.

But the gravy train will continue until his team starts turning towards Democrats, and it will. In the meantime, they are enjoying lavish paychecks, nice new Mercedes in their driveways and European ski vacations all on taxpayers dime.

I don't think there is as much "gravy" in the Mueller investigation "gravy train" as some here seem to think.

I am just going to put up two markers here:
  1. 17 million dollars
  2. 18 attorneys


17 million dollars
 
quote
The special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has cost nearly $17 million dollars so far, according to a new report from the Justice Department.

The office has been operating for just over a year — since May 17, 2017, when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller, the former FBI director.
"Robert Mueller Reveals The Price Tag For His Special Counsel Investigation"
Carrie Johnson for NPR; May 31, 2018.
https://www.npr.org/2018/05...ounsel-investigation

18 attorneys
 
quote
Special counsel Robert Mueller has assembled a team of more than a dozen seasoned prosecutors to probe Russian interference in the 2016 election, including any potential collusion between Russian agents and members of President Donald Trump’s campaign.

In addition to a squad of agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Mueller now has 18 attorneys on staff, a spokesperson for Special Counsel Robert Mueller confirmed to ABC News.
"Meet special counsel Robert Mueller's prosecution team"
ABC News; May 17, 2018.
https://abcnews.go.com/Poli...am/story?id=55219043

So those numbers--17 million dollars and 18 attorneys--go back to the end of May of this year.

With the investigation still ongoing, the final "tab" is not yet available (obviously), but I think these numbers are telling of an investigation that has been carried forward by a team of attorneys, including Mueller himself, that could have been more highly compensated as corporate lawyers or in other roles outside of government, instead of working this case for the last 20 or so months.

This investigation, like any other, will last as long as it takes to produce that which they seek. What is unique about this investigation is that it is upside down and backwards.

In most circumstances, a crime is committed which necessitates an investigation in order to identify the perpetrator. Conversely, in this case they identified the "perpetrator" then began an investigation in order to find a crime.

This farce is indefensible and absolutely contrary to America's core principles. I dare say very few of us would be able to withstand such an inquiry, unscathed.

I don't see anything "unusual".

The left has always relied on the courts to try to get what they cannot get through legislation.

In this case they are using the courts to try to get what they could not get through the ballot box.

You are absolutely correct in your assessment of identifying a "criminal" before finding a "crime", which is in keeping with the left's presumption of guilt until innocence is proven, (as we have already witnessed with their approach to Justice Kavanaugh).

Just the left doing what it always eventually does.....
