With the disclaimer that this news comes from CNN, it sounds as though Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia might be wrapped up as early as next week, followed by a report submitted to Congress.
Breaking right now on @CNN: A.G. Bill Barr "is preparing to announce as early as next week the completion of Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, with plans for Barr to submit to Congress soon after a summary of Mueller's confidential report, according to people familiar…"

Sorry, guys, but even Hillary super-fan Peter Daou seems to think that the only way to get Trump out of office is to vote him out, not impeach him.
Since 2017, I've predicted #Mueller is going to be a disappointment and that he won't take down Trump. I hope I'm wrong, but with reports he's wrapping up, it appears he won't touch Trump's inner circle.
Trumpism must be defeated at the ballot box.

Win elections? That could work.
Ballot box? The Russians helped him at the ballot box, so we are hopeless our law system has nothing for a traitor if you think about it.

I am already feeling depressed and saddened because I feel that it’s all going to be big fizzle and Trump will claim victory about the witch hunt and even perhaps be re-elected with the help of Russia of course.

Don't please. A lot of us are fucking depressed. We need some hope. Just don't.

I fear you are right. The part that will be most upsetting are the smirks on the Trump Mob, feeling victorious.

I fear you’re right. This is liable to take the wind out of a lot of sails heading towards the next election.

I’m bummed. I was hoping he could take Trump and his crooked family down before 2020. There was so much evidence of obstruction. Puzzling to me.
— fran (@franinfl) February 21, 2019
Exactly. Impeachment will fail too. GOP will never convict. Without the largest and most effective get out the vote campaign in US history DT will win. With SCOTUS and federal courts stacked he’ll be making new laws that will enable his autocracy, suppress voting, etc. BLEAK…..

" Trumpism must be defeated at the ballot box." Correct, if we get a chance to see a ballot box in 2020. Trump just might declare another National Emergency and put a stop to the election and start making arrests of dissidents like you and me.

I imagine trump will call off elections under his fake emergency. It's what Hitler did.

. Simply voting him out presumes his legitimacy he must be impeached

I think you're wrong.
Time will tell.

“It appears”? Peter, none of us know – and you’re normally a lot more level headed. There’s a number of indictments under seal. Perhaps you’re right, I don’t know. But you’ve been casting doubt on Mueller’s investigation for the last several weeks because he’s been diligent.

He's a Republican
— Faith (@margab18) February 21, 2019
Hope you’re wrong but Mueller is a republican so it wouldn’t shock me

If you expect for a Republican to not let you down, you’re probably going to have a bad time. #JustTheWayItIs

Mueller is not giving you the answers you want, so you are now running the bus over him?
You’re not interested in Justice, you are interested in oppressing those with opposite political viewpoints!
You are a fraud!

I think he’s going to deliver the finale all at once. Strategically, that’s the safest way. You kill a snake by cutting off its head. A mortally wounded animal is extremely dangerous.
