My feeling is that the Mueller team is getting nervous, because all their cases were never real straightforward; neither with Manafort or Cohen; each time unexpected surprises pop up with these guys. Let's be honest; all the lying, cheating makes it extremely difficult to get an end result. Since there is the push to finish this task, Mueller likely will need more "real" stuff and not be caught up in all the "forever" Manafort or Cohen cases. The statement: "Follow the "money" trail should still apply, but he's deviating from it by way too many sidelines; probably created by the culprits themselves to screw up this investigation. All these "types" are masters in making a "chaos" of everything, including the "mob boss leader" himself.
It must be very frustrating for Mueller and his team.

That's certainly true, but sifting out the truth from the thousands of lies is a challenge even for Mueller. It may be that the Mueller is struggling to come up with solid enough evidence that will "make the case" and stand the scrutiny of the Grand Jury. That bar is much higher than that of the media who seek to sensationalize any tidbit of knowledge gained in a rush for ratings.
Cohen postponing testimony due to threats against his family ? Crazy how Mob tactics are not shocking the public.
