The Schadenfreude What-If Scenario on Collusion

Robert Barnes @ Law & Crime asks if the Mueller indictment now means that the Hillary Clinton campaign could be indicted for their involvement with Chris Steele.  Don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen, but could you imagine the apoplexy on the left if Mueller followed the indictments to their logical conclusion, i.e. collusion by the Clinton campaign?

Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted foreign citizens for trying to influence the American public about an election because those citizens did not register as a foreign agent nor record their financial expenditures to the Federal Elections Commission. By that theory, when will Mueller indict Christopher Steele, FusionGPS, PerkinsCoie, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign? Mueller’s indictment against 13 Russian trolls claimed their social media political activity was criminal because: they were foreign citizens; they tried to influence an election; and they neither registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act nor reported their funding to the Federal Elections Commission.
First, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make Steele a criminal...
Second, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make FusionGPS a criminal co-conspirator...
Third, if Mueller’s theory is correct, then three things make PerkinsCoie a potential target... 
Fourth, if Mueller’s theory is correct, then three things make the DNC a potential target...
Fifth, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make the Clinton Campaign a potential target: it knew Steele was a foreign citizen; it knew, and paid, Steele to influence an election; and it knew, and facilitated, Steele neither registering as a foreign agent nor reporting his funding from the Clinton campaign to the Federal Election Commission, by disguising its funding of payments to Steele laundered through a law firm as a “legal expense.”
This is the logical extension of the investigation.  Don't expect it to happen but WOW, if it did.
