After more than two years, an inquiry into the Clinton Foundation and Clinton's tenure at State is closing shopóand there's reportedly absolutely nothing to show. If there was any there there, presumable the Jeff Sessions-Matthew Whitaker-William Barr Department of Justice would have uncovered it in that time.

CNN: The Trump Justice Department closed its 2-year long probe into Clinton's business dealings -- including whether the Clinton Foundation received special treatment during the former first lady's time as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. That includes an allegation made by Trump (and some other conservatives) that Clinton had somehow steered a uranium deal to the Russians after a donation to the Clinton Foundation.

"Remember that Hillary Clinton gave Russia 20 percent of American uranium and, you know, she was paid a fortune," Trump said on the campaign trail in October 2016. "You know, they got a tremendous amount of money."

That wasn't true then. And now an investigation authorized by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into potential wrongdoing by Clinton has turned up a total of zero wrongdoing of any sort by either Hillary or Bill Clinton -- or anyone associated with the Clinton Foundation.

Now, contrast that with another multi-year probe originating in the Justice Department: Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. That inquiry led to 199 criminal counts against 37 people and entities. Seven people pleaded guilty; six were sentenced to prison. And Mueller concluded that not only had Russia engaged in a deep and broad effort to influence the election to help Trump and hurt Clinton but also that Trump himself had engaged in a series of behaviors during the investigation that could have been construed as obstructive.

Trump -- and his allies -- regularly dismiss the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt" and a "hoax." So what will they say about this probe into Clinton's business dealings that turned up the equivalent of the contents of Al Capone's secret vault?
