Chuck Schumer and the Democrats were setting the table for 2018 to be dominated by one issue.

The left was waiting for Robert Mueller to drop his report so Schumer and Nancy Pelosi could immediately move to impeach Donald Trump.

But then Schumer and the rest of the Democrats got some really bad news from the last place they ever expected.

Yahoo news reporter Michael Isikoff was one of the go-to journalists for Deep State operatives looking to spread the Russian collusion fake news hoax.

In fact, Christopher Steele was the source for a September 2016 Yahoo article—which the FBI used as corroborating evidence for the Steel dossier in their FISA warrant application.

But two years later, Isikoff’s perspective underwent a sharp reversal.

Isikoff no longer believes in the fairy tale his Deep State sources fed to him during the 2016 campaign.

Anti-Trump radio host John Zeigler interviewed Isikoff expecting him to confirm the Trump-Russia collusion story based on his reporting.

However, Isikoff instead threw cold water all over the credibility of the Steele dossier.

“When you actually get into the details of the Steele dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them, and in fact, there is good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations will never be proven and are likely false,” Isikoff stated.

Isikoff also noted that Michael Cohen was never charged with lying to Congress when he denied traveling to Prague during Trump’s campaign to facilitate collusion with the Russians.

This was a sign to Isikoff that Steele’s dossier – as well as Mueller’s investigation – were going to come up empty on proving the collusion story.

“Why wasn’t he charged with lying about it? That would have been as serious a lie as the lie he told about the Trump Tower Moscow project,” Isikoff told Zeigler. “All the signs to me are that Mueller is reaching his end game, and we may see less than many people want him to find.”

This makes Isikoff one of the few reporters to do an honest evaluation of this story based on where the facts actually lead.

And it’s terrible news for Democrats.

Nancy Pelosi told her caucus to hold off on impeachment proceedings until they saw what Mueller produced.

Schumer also needs Mueller to deliver the goods because a party-line House impeachment vote is doomed in the Senate.

Isikoff covered this story from the word ‘go’.

He had bought it hook, line, and sinker.

And now he does not believe the dossier’s central thesis – that the Trump campaign worked hand-in-glove with the Russians to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

If Mueller strikes out on Russian collusion, it will cast doubt on his entire probe.

That will only add fuel to President Trump’s claims that it was a Democrat hoax and a politically motivated witch hunt.

And it means Schumer and Pelosi’s dreams of impeaching the President will be dealt a major blow.
