As predicted, Robert Mueller’s investigation was more likely to find process crimes, such as making false statements to federal investigators, or crimes unrelated to alleged Russia collusion, than crimes related to actual collusion.

Mueller just charged Michael Flynn with lying to the FBI during a January 2017 interview (which predated Mueller) about...

Be careful for what you wish for because it may go your way, but it may also come back to bite you. The left has pressured for an investigation to find collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia, but now that investigation has brought in one of their own.

Of course, some Russian collusion is more newsworthy...
