By allowing Mueller to "stack the deck" with 100% anti-Trump investigators, Democrats thought they had "bought off the refs" and were assured a win. They put all the eggs in the Mueller basket.
Then Mueller betrayed them - as I predicted he would.
Not open legally, Barr cleared, but open in the Democrats' minds.
The fact he picked the most openly partisan panel possible signals this was a setup from the start to lure Democrats into relying solely upon him.
Rosenstein picked Mueller because he knew Mueller could be flipped. He had the goods on him.
In reality, Sessions and Rosenstein were working FOR Trump the whole time (along with silent Barr)!
