Mission Creep

Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel the day after the New York Times published a story based on the leak of memos written by former FBI Director James Comey.  Ostensibly, Mueller was to investigate the cyber-interference of Russia in the 2016 election.  It quickly assumed the Trump-Russia collusion narrative instigated through a supposed memo from our international intelligence partners and then the Steele dossier.  Those have all been debunked, there is no evidence of that collusion, but that has not stopped Mueller and his Hillary favored henchmen.  Instead, his mission has creeped to ensnare anyone he can reach within the circle of President Trump.
