This was the day anti-Trump forces in the media and Washington swamp were waiting for.

Special counsel Robert Mueller finally turned in his report detailing the findings of his investigation.

But things did not go according to plan, and Rachel Maddow burst into tears when Robert Mueller made this confession.

For two years, Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC program was a one-stop shopping center for every insane news story involving Donald Trump and Russia.

Maddow peddled conspiracy theories about tax returns, real estate transactions, and secret meetings with Russians to her audience like a dealer pushes drugs on his customers.

But eventually the rubber was going to meet the road.

And that happened when Robert Mueller turned in his final report and announced once and for all that no member of the Trump campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy to collude with the Russians to rig the 2016 election.

Maddow was devastated.

She was exposed as a liar and a fraud.

And it hit her hard.

During the segment when Maddow broke down the Mueller findings, the MSNBC host burst into tears when she had to confront the reality that the hours of broadcasts she devoted to the Russia story turned out to be nothing more than baseless conspiracy theories and hoaxes.

“Our job tonight—as a country sort of or at least—what everybody in the country is going to be doing tonight is trying to figure out what it means that the report of special counsel Robert Mueller has finally been submitted. We’ve heard it said so many times that it was imminent, that it was done and maybe done and we didn’t know about it. Finally, it’s happened. In terms of what that means and what Mueller found, we know only the smallest little bits. This is the start of something apparently, not the end of something,” Maddow whined.

“For everything that we’ve been through as a country,” Maddow continued. “For every kind of trial and challenge and intrigue and embarrassment and scandal that we have been through as a nation, we haven’t ever had to reckon with the possibility that somebody has ascended to the presidency of the United States to serve the interests of another country rather than our own.”

It’s not just Maddow who has alot to cry about.

Democrats staked their plan to impeach Donald Trump on Mueller finding evidence of treasonous Russian collusion.

That plan blew up in their faces when the special counsel – backed up by an all-star team of the Democrats’ most blood-thirsty prosecutors – failed to turn up any evidence of criminal conspiracy with Russia.

In fact, Mueller’s final report completely exonerated Trump.

Mueller announced he found no evidence of a criminal conspiracy on behalf of the Trump campaign to conspire with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election.

The reality that Trump is going to run for re-election with a booming economy and full vindication from the Mueller report hit Maddow and other anti-Trump forces like a ton of bricks.

So it’s no wonder tears were shed.
