Washington is full of blather, bombast and bullsh-t, but a line about Robert Mueller was the most important thing spoken or written there last week:
“Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel’s office, declined to comment.”
Since Mueller’s office never says anything outside court publicly, who knew he had a spokesman or needed one?
The line was included in a Washington Post story that said Mueller told the White House that President Trump was not a target of the criminal investigation.
The story could be a big deal — if true. But the report is nonetheless remarkable because it was the first leak in memory that carried good news for Trump.
