Byron York: With Mueller Office Emptying, Dramatic Predictions Remain Unfulfilled
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Last week, John Brennan, the former CIA director turned Trump-bashing talking head, predicted a final flurry of indictments from Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller. The big day, Brennan said, would be Friday, March 8.
"I wouldn't be surprised if, for example, this week on Friday — not knowing anything about it— but Friday is the day the grand jury indictments come down. And this Friday is better than next Friday, because next Friday is the 15th of March, which is the ides of March," Brennan toldMSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell. "And I don't think Robert Mueller will want to have that dramatic flair of the ides of March when he is going to be delivering what I think are going to be are his indictments — the final indictments — as well the report."
March 8 came and went without new Mueller indictments, or at least new public indictments. And now comes news that Mueller's top deputy, Andrew Weissmann — also known as the special counsel's "legal pit bull" — will leave the office within the next few days.
