Run the ad now, and run it nonstop:

“674: Days of Mueller Investigation”

“$13 million and Counting: Taxpayer Money for Mueller Investigation”

“Zero. 0. Nada. Zip. None.: Convictions for Russian collusion and obstruction of justice.”

“Incalculable: the amount of time wasted on a dead-end probe that could have been spent solving America’s problems.”

“Fully Exonerated: President Donald J. Trump.”

If the Republicans spend $100 million running that ad, they could stop licking their wounds from last November’s shellacking, and start building momentum for 2020. And that would be a massive boon at just the right time, since the next election will determine the presidency, congress, and state offices that will control the once-a-decade congressional redistricting.

But that’s a huge “if,” since they’ll likely focus on “red meat to the base” direct mail that will raise money, but won’t reach Middle America. If that’s the case, they will have once again fallen prey to the inside-the-Beltway mentality, missing a unique opportunity to connect with those who matter most: the Great American Middle.

Here is a look at the Mueller report:

President Trump was exonerated. To state otherwise is fallacy. The sole objective was to determine if collusion occurred, and, in particular, whether any collusion occurred with direction from, or knowledge of, Mr. Trump himself.

No collusion was found.

For the disgruntled souls languishing in disbelief, both rank-and-file anti-Trumpers and a host of “experts” who for months virtually guaranteed a finding of collusion, that bears repeating. No collusion. And no obstruction, either.

Given that the Mueller investigation centered around foreign interference in the election, it is interesting to note that much of the opposition research against Mr. Trump was compiled by a British foreign national (and ex-spy), who was funded, via a financial web, by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. How ironic.

Mr. Trump repeatedly criticized Robert Mueller, but to the Independent Counsel’s credit, he kept his head down, and went on working as a consummate professional. Hard as it must have been, he did not let attacks on his reputation cloud his judgment. Instead, he did what he was charged to do: thoroughly investigate. So a tip of the hat to Mr. Mueller — a rare non-partisan who acted with dignity.

Some are arguing that Mr. Mueller’s 34 indictments/convictions paint an unflattering picture of the President. That’s irrelevant. No rational person can hold him responsible for those people. He’s not his brother’s keeper, and some of the illegalities occurred before he ever worked with those charged.

This is another incredible opportunity for the President to act eminently presidential. Yet he continues to move one step forward and two back by delving into irrelevant diatribes. In doing so, he loses credibility and strays off-point — the last thing he should be doing when he has such a golden goose at his disposal. The most head-scratching example was when he attacked the late Senator John McCain, which was disrespectful, served no point, and put off many of his supporters.

The big question is whether Democrats will finally end their investigations and impeachment talk. The answer: not a chance. But they’ll do so at their own peril, as their hatred of all-things-Trump is so blinding that it will likely backfire.

Donald Trump was elected legitimately, but to many on the Left, that victory cannot stand. So, since Day One, they have been engaged in a scorched-earth war to de-legitimize the President. They have protested, cried, sought “safe spaces,” rioted, claimed voter fraud, alleged collusion with Russia, demanded impeachment, elevated a porn star to icon status, tried to destroy the President’s Supreme Court nominee, pushed the Mueller investigation, and cried some more. Now, Democrats will push full steam ahead with their congressional investigations, and simultaneously urge other investigations to ramp up.

Enough is enough. Time to stop whining, put up their best candidate, and square off.

And let’s be honest. Mr. Trump isn’t being vilified because of his personality, but because he has shaken the establishment to its core, ignoring the “rule” of not disturbing the status quo.

In doing so, he is pushing a popular agenda, even if many don’t publicly voice that sentiment: taking on China; protecting the country’s borders; reducing troops in the Middle East; bringing a nuclear-armed North Korea to the table; lowering taxes; and upending political correctness.

But truth be told, Donald J. Trump did commit a “crime.” It was neither collusion, nor obstruction. To the Democrats, it was far worse. Mr. Trump’s heinous transgression was beating Hillary Clinton and denying her, and her Party, their “rightful” coronation. And despite every effort to right that “wrong,” their quest for “justice” continues to backfire. If they’re not careful, the President may yet become a “repeat offender.”

And you don’t need an investigation to know that.
