This doesn’t mean Mueller never found anything of interest, by the way. It just means Rosenstein thought this was something the NY feds should handle. Getting a warrant to seize a lawyer’s records is highly unusual and indicates they have proof of crimes.
And of course it means these are crimes Trump can’t pardon.
