CNN Admits No Further Mueller Indictments Is a ‘Huge Victory for the President’
[NEWSBUSTERS.ORG] Talk about a bad day to be analysts, commentators, hosts, and pundits at CNN who had been wanting the First Family’s legal situation to end in criminal charges and for the Trump presidency to end in disgrace.
On Friday afternoon after the Mueller Report had been handed over to Attorney General Bill Barr, chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and crime and justice news hound Shimon Prokupecz conceded that the lack of further indictments (sealed or unsealed) in relation to the Mueller probe is a "huge victory for the President" and "really good news" for individuals who had been subject to endless media speculation.
How bad did it get? Two CNN personalities even admitted that Trump "had been vindicated." More on that shortly.
After Laura Jarrett delivered the news that there would be no further indictments (or recommended ones), Prokupecz told host Wolf Blitzer that this was "probably one of the most significant pieces of information of all this because there's been so much speculation from everywhere" that "more is coming."
In the end, he noted "that’s not happening" even though there are other investigations that are Russia-related out there.
"So, the investigation itself in terms of other parts of this is not over. It's very important ‐ it's a very important line and there's a reason why they're saying this. No other indictments from Robert Mueller," he added.
Toobin then interjected and disregarded a setup from Blitzer so he could emphatically assert that everyone should "be specific" about this because "[t]his is really good news for a lot of people around Donald Trump
