Lost in Democratic hysteria over Russian election meddling and their failed narrative of Trump campaign conspiracy to assist is the fact special counsel Robert Mueller let the president work under a "cloud" for at least a year, despite having found no evidence of collusion, according to Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.

"It couldn't have taken Bob Mueller that long to find that out," Rep. King told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "The reports we get are that they knew a year ago: there was no collusion. Well, didn't [Mueller] have an obligation to tell the president of the United States that? To let the world know?"

King's point being made was foreign countries were watching and listening to the failed narrative and it potentially damaged the United States in negotiations around the world.

"The president has gone off to negotiate with Kim Jong Un," King told host John Catsimatidis. "He is involved, obviously, in very sensitive negotiations all the time in the Middle East . . . To have this cloud hanging over him, with foreign leaders that may think, 'Hey, he may be indicted for treason. He may be charged with conspiring with the enemy.'"

Mueller was "wrong" to hold the findings of his investigation for so long, because it merely fed the narrative the president was compromised when he was not – because Russia's goal was to weaken the U.S. president and it was mission accomplished, according to King.

"I think that the Mueller people had obligations to tell the president, to tell the country, to tell the world, that there was no collusion whatsoever as soon as they found out there was none," King said. "This isn't like you're dealing with some local drug dealer . . . You're talking about, whether you like him or not, he is the leader of the country. The leader of the Free World. And they let this hang over him for at least a year. It was wrong not to make it known."
