Yesterday, we noted Kellyanne Conway mocking CNN’s Russia fixation. Conway told Alisyn Camerota: “I know that we just like to say the word ‘Russia, Russia’ to try to mislead the voters. And I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well.”

When Robert Mueller was first appointed Special Counsel, I thought, given his generally good reputation, that this might be a streamlined process with fewer leaks, focused on either proving or disproving allegations of Russian interference.
