People keep expressing exasperation with Mueller investigation...Watergate took much more time

I believe that Mueller is taking his time because he is going to not only take down Trump...but almost all the MFs supporting and enabling him. Even those so-called oligarchs and enablers (like Adlestein and Koch) who have given millions to the causes Trump pushes. I believe when Mueller get through, it will an almost complete draining of the GOP swamp and a clean broom sweep exposing the dirty deeds of the guilty GOP.

drumpf and his administration and associates are so hugely corrupt, it takes time to amass all of the corruption information.The wait will be well worth it!

I think he is waiting until January before he thinks about releasing the report. I want to make sure Mueller finishes what he has and has all the i's dotted and t's crossed.

There's 5 OP's per week in GD asking Mueller to hurry things up. Not exactly in those words necessarily, but the sentiment is the same.

bush and cheney. In the end, nothing but a bunch of dead people lied into war.

I think Mueller will get a few minor actors -- often for things unrelated to trump and elections -- but I'm not so sure about trump and others at the top. If Mueller has something, and is bent on bringing trump down, there was no reason not to announce it before the mid-terms. People get indicted all the time when prosecutors don't have all the evidence and everything wrapped up in a bow. Everyday this goes on, gives trump and GOPers more time to destroy America. Most of the speculation about indictments are just that, speculation. If it happens, I'll cheer.

And meanwhile, unlike the current White House occupant, he wasn't appointing as heads of agencies people who despised those very agencies and wanted them gutted.

are coming from the White House, or allies of the White House who were fed the story by somebody close to Trump. Mueller's team does not leak.

Three weeks ago now, we had the story that Donald Trump Jr had told his friends that he was about to be arrested or indicted. That means the source of the story originated with Donald Trump Jr, almost as bad of a pathological liar as his father. It still has not happened. Roger Stone as well has claimed several times during 2018 that he was going to be indicted "any day now" as well. Still hasn't happened.

So, when it's reported by many sources and then doesn't happen, it amplifies the "FAKE NEWS" message that Trump and his minions are talking and tweeting about. (Don't listen to the Fake News media, they said Don Jr was going to be indicted 3 weeks ago, didn't happen, fake news)

Additionally, besides adding to the Fake News message, when Don Jr or Stone are not indicted, it makes it look like Mueller doesn't have enough to indict them, so they're innocent. If Mueller keeps investigating them, it makes it look like Mueller is fishing for anything he can find to charge them with, even though they're past the expected indictment date.
