Give ABC’s Terry Moran credit. He’s willing to say what many in the media won’t actually articulate, and that is ‘if Mueller clears President Trump – the media and the Democrats will look like idiots.’

Well… maybe he doesn’t say “idiots.”

When This Week host Martha Raddatz asks him about “what happens” if Mueller finds nothing, Moran tries to explain the enormity of the President being cleared.

Raddatz: “How big a deal is it if they don’t find collusion for the president?”

Moran: “Huge! He’s cleared. If Robert Mueller comes back, Mueller became a folk hero in the United States, [played on SNL by] Robert DeNiro… The central and most serious question in this investigation, the reason Robert Mueller started it: Did the current president of the United States assist the Kremlin in an attack on our democracy? And if Mueller, after two years, comes back and says, ‘I don’t have the evidence to support that charge,’ that’s a reckoning. That’s a reckoning for progressives and Democrats who hoped that Mueller would essentially erase the 2016 election. It’s a reckoning for the media. It’s a reckoning across the country if in fact after all this time there was no collusion.”

Moran also makes a good point near the end of the segment when he explains to Raddatz that all of these hearings are probably not in the best interests of the Democrat Party. As Moran puts it, “The Democrats have to worry that they don’t look like they are just throwing anything against the wall hoping it will stick, and get back to the old politics. If they want to beat him, beat him on the issues, beat him in politics, don’t beat him with investigations.”

Watch as Moran explains:
