WHY MUELLER IS ONLY THE BEGINNING… IF YOU TALK TO CAPITOL HILL DEMOCRATS PRIVATELY, you will hear something surprising about what they expect from ROBERT MUELLER: Many of them expect absolutely nothing. Several top Democratic lawmakers and aides tell us privately that they are certain the report will be a dud.IF THAT’S THE CASE, the White House will immediately make the argument that it’s time for Congress to shutter its investigations into the president. But Democratic probes into PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP are going to drag on regardless of the Mueller report. The committees are looking into things that have nothing to do with Russian interference — the president’s company, security clearances, handling of classified information, decision-making in the White House and Cabinet scandals, for example.
The Democrats plan to argue that if Mueller found absolutely nothing that just proves that they need to do All the Investigations.

Update: Katy Tur dismisses the Mueller report, when she’s told the Mueller report is expected to be a “nothingburger.” She basically then says “Oh what does that guy know anyway.”
