Donald Trump's relentless attacks launched against Robert Mueller (e.g., "phony collusion," "witch hunt") have apparently diverted the public's attention from the achievements of the Special Counsel.

Sad. They are missing a great performance.

Mueller's team has delivered 17 criminal indictments, which have resulted in guilty pleas from bigwigs such as national security advisor Michael Flynn and Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Yet a poll conducted by Global Strategy Group found that though 81 percent of Americans either "heard a lot" or "heard some" about Mueller's investigation, a whopping 59 percent don't know that he's uncovered any crimes.

GPG found that Americans want Mueller's investigation to continue by a 55 percent to 35 percent margin.

A sizable group, 37 percent, though says if Mueller doesn't wrap up the investigation soon then Congress or Trump should shut it down.

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who must have Labor Day Weekend travel plans, gave Mueller Sept. 1 to complete the probe.

Rudy has a good point.

The longer Mueller's probe drags on, the more time Trump has to fire up tweets to discredit the investigation and erode public support for it.

It's time for Mueller to deliver the goods. Time is running out for the Special Counsel.
