Progressives Face a Bleak Post-Mueller Landscape

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What really explains the furor now directed at Barr? One, progressives are terrified that a number of Trump’s critics — Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe — may soon be indicted. Two, the 2020 progressive agenda — whether defined as the Green New Deal, a wealth tax, Medicare for All, or open borders — will not compete well with Trump’s currently booming economy. Three, the Mueller investigation is over, finished after 22 months, $34 million, and a 448-page, two-volume report. So now what? Progressives are not willing to let the Mueller investigation rest in peace and move on with their lives. Perhaps they feel in the political sense that there is nothing to move on to. And they are probably right.
