In an effort to show the weight of Robert Mueller’s investigation compared to others, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd put out the following statistic contrasting the number of indictments in the ongoing prove as opposed to the Benghazi and Clinton email investigations.
As i said on @ThisWeekABC to give some perspective: “Benghazi was a 4 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Clinton emails was a 2 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Mueller investigation has been 14 months, there have been 23 indictments.”

There are two ways to read that. One (the way Dowd intends is) is that the Mueller investigation is SO SERIOUS that Mueller can’t take five steps without finding a crime.
The other, perhaps more logical, line of thinking is that Mueller is a special counsel and is acting much more aggressively with more latitude than the other probes.
Narrator: There were no indictments in Benghazi or the emails because, as has now become clear, the Obama Justice Department was thoroughly corrupt. And none of the Mueller indictments have anything to do with Russian/Trump collusion. https://t.co/7tPfAzrImW

We really don’t need a reminder about who was handling the Benghazi and Clinton email investigations, do we?
Well, sure. They were investigating Democrats. https://t.co/QwACPHpFIX

The names Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch come to mind.
