50. Looking back,

Patrick actually did accomplish a lot. He convicted Scooter Libby on numerous, serious felonies. While we hoped he'd charge Cheney, he did recommend that Congress go forward, which should have resulted in impeachment. Still, his actions reduced Cheney's power from being in charge of the White House and administration, to becoming an embarrassment to the republican party. Even George W. Bush ignored Cheney's begging him to pardon Libby. I think Fitzgerald helped elect President Obama, and also put many of the neoconservatives in both parties in check.

It is certain that Manafort and Flynn will face serious criminal charges. Flynn's attorney has publicly asked for a deal, and Manafort's is busy doing the same behind the scenes. Because they are both notorious liars, Mr. Mueller would need solid evidence to support their claims, before even considering making a deal with either one. That proof would be found in documents ....and, by no coincidence, the federal grand jury has almost limitless access to documents.

As an individual, I like Fitzgerald more than either Comey or Mueller. But I think that both Comey and Mueller are more willing to challenge the White House. And when Mueller puts Comey on the stand, to be followed by at least ten high-ranking FBI and Justice Department officials, I am fully confident they are going after someone up the chain. And there was but one person higher than Flynn.
