The letter from Attorney General William Barr sent to Congress "shows that the Russia collusion investigation is exactly what President Trump always said it was – a witch hunt," former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., wrote for RealClear Politics.

It will not be just a function of what is in special counsel Robert Mueller's report, but we should not be "overlooking the significance of what's not in it," according to Huckabee.

"Not one of the Democrats' high-value targets — Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, or any other Trump family members — were indicted by Mueller, and the Department of Justice has already said there will be no more indictments forthcoming," Huckabee wrote.

"Of course, Mueller didn't subpoena the president, either, crushing the hopes of the mainstream media journalists and pundits who had been confidently expecting that very outcome from the start of Mueller's probe. If President Trump really was an agent of Russia, as they fervently believe he is, then surely Mueller would have taken the added step of at least interviewing him before ending the investigation.

"Among those who were indicted in the Mueller investigation, moreover, not one was charged with conspiring with Russia to fix the 2016 election – the entire purpose of assigning a special counsel."

Huckabee also noted the fact the special counsel's investigation has concluded on its own volition, meaning "President Trump did a lousy job" of obstructing it or justice.

"Here we are, two years and $30-plus million in taxpayer funds later, and nothing to show for it, except some completely discredited media commentators and partisan members of Congress who breathlessly all but guaranteed there would be evidence of the president and members of his family and staff colluding with the Russians," Huckabee wrote. "I won't hold my breath for their admissions and apologies.

". . . With the Mueller witch hunt behind him, perhaps now the President Trump can finally focus his full attention on the job that the American people elected him to do: making America great again."
