"Here’s what all this means. This means that Mueller and his staff have likely concluded now that the entire Trump For President campaign was a corrupt enterprise in one way or another almost since the moment it was first conceived and that the same can be said of the Trump presidency*. It’s the money. It’s the Russians. The whole damn dirty deal is one great writhing ball of poisonous snakes and Mueller seems to be perilously close to untangling it."
You'll note the asterisk above after the word "presidency." That doesn't refer to a footnote. It's that every time in the article the word "president" is reference, he has given it an asterisk. I suspect it's a sly allusion to when Major League Baseball put an asterisk after Roger Maris hit 61 home runs, and (because the season had more games than when Babe Ruth had hit 60) the commissioner wanted some way to show that he believed it to be illegitimate.

Whenever I'm talking with someone who wonders if Robert Mueller has much on Trump, I always say to them – “Much? When Mueller filed with his first indictments with the court, he recorded that he had 800,000 documents on just Paul Manafort.” Does he have much on Trump?? In all seriousness, I'm not sure if I can hardly even imagine how much he has on Trump. The best I can do is envision the final scene in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” – except that every one of Mueller's crates is meticulously identified and has a cross-referenced record.
When I look at what we all the things we have long-known on the record in public that are blatantly illegal and then look at the minutiae of detail in some of the documents in the indictment – like the emails of Russian conspirators telling one another to be careful because they think the FBI is onto them – I just wearily shake my head when I read social media comments about, “A year of investigation and they have nothing.” Forgetting the five guilty pleas and 17 indictments, the depth of ignorance never ceases to amaze me. And the depth of their shock when the crates are released will only serve to prove that level of ignorance.
