The last two days I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I kept my eye on twitter and was there when CNN first tweeted out that Mueller has filed charges against someone.
That CNN which is fighting with MSNBC to be THE anti-Trump network and which apparently has connections to Fusion GPS that they didn’t bother to disclose was the recipient of this latest leak from Mueller’s team of Democrats was one of the few unsurprising things about it.
First there’s was the surprise of an indictment at all. I’m old enough to have sat through a lot of these things and I don’t recall any special counsel managing an indictment a mere 9 months or less after being appointed.
Second of all there is the surprise of such an announcement taking place of a Friday evening inviting speculation for days. Normally a law enforcement matter like this takes place quickly in order to keep the target of such an act from being able to prepare whoever the target is has been given several days of not being charged to take legal measures in their advantage. That seems odd to me.
Third of all is something that I have to give Andrew Breitbart’s arch nemesis Eric Boehlert credit for noticing the NYT has not touched this story at all. They didn’t touch it the day it broke
It's been 14 hrs since CNN broke Mueller story–still nothing written by anyone on NYT staff.

Nor have they done so as of this writing: (Sunday 9:42 am)
Day Two: NYT staff refuses to cover news of looming Mueller indictments

That the times, which is in the middle of its “Trump Bump”, would leave this story alone to leave their anti-trump audience to go elsewhere is simply amazing.
But for me the biggest surprise is how the left has received it. To wit Jake Tapper put out this tweet…
Boy it’s almost as if some people knew this was coming so they tried to pour chum in the water to make it dank and murky https://t.co/kWRR8a9Mpc

…implying that the revelations concerning Mueller and Uranium One were a dodge to counter this (rather than the obvious conclusion that this sudden indictment and it’s timing was all about changing the subject BY him). It produced a series of replies from the Never Trump faithful that can only be described as orgasmic. Harvey Weinstein wasn’t as excited in the presence of women as the Twitter left are over this news.
I find this surprising because we’ve seen this over and over again from the original Fitzmas
To the Michelle Bachman “indictments” that the left kept promising to election night where the entire left was ready to dance before they were disappointed.
I would have thought that election night would have taught them their lesson
the replies to this thread read like a liberal wet dream, it's Nov 8th 7:59 PM again for the left. Will be fun to watch the same end result

But no. They are ginning themselves up and the crash if nothing comes of it, from a not guilty verdict after a long trial, to a Trump Pardon (don’t think for a moment he wouldn’t do it) to the possibility that no indictment takes place at all (not very likely but that would explain the silence of the NY times) their crash will be most amusing to the rest of us.
Actually now that I think of it, maybe the left setting itself up for a fall isn’t that big a surprise, the real surprise would be them taking the Ann Althouse route.
I’ve got nothing to say, because it hasn’t happened
If the left thought like this, THAT would be an earth shattering shock.
Me I’m going to see what happens but I’ll tell you one thing. If you think this White House isn’t ready to win this fight, you haven’t been paying attention this last year.
