The moment that it was announced that a “Special Counsel” had been named and it was announced who it was, the little hairs on the back of my neck stood straight up.
Make no mistake. Mueller is a part of the Washington Establishment.
While it is true that he served under both a Democratic and Republican President, he is still quite partisan. His loyalties are to the Washingtonian Status Quo.
That is why he has expanding his investigation into the business dealings of a then-private citizen.
What boggles the mind is the fact that Donald J. Trump and Donald Trump, Jr. have committed no crime.
Even the Liberal Professor Emeritus from Harvard, Renown Legal Scholar Alan Dershowitz has written in op eds that no crime has been committed.
But, that has not stopped Mueller.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
The move is seen as a sign the investigation into election interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign is heating up and entering a new phase. Reuters also reported that grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer and others last year.
Russia has denied having a hand in the U.S. presidential election. President Trump, too, has strongly denied allegations of collusion and has frequently called the investigation a “witch hunt.”
Grand juries allow prosecutors to subpoena documents and get witness testimony on the record. They also can seek indictments.
Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, told Fox News on Thursday he wasn’t aware that Mueller had impaneled a new grand jury but said, “We favor anything that brings this investigation to a swift conclusion.”
Cobb also told reporters that, “Grand jury matters are typically secret,” and the White House “is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”
Trump attorney Jay Sekulow downplayed the significance of the grand jury, calling it “a standard operating procedure when you’ve got a situation like this.”
“We have no reason to believe President Trump is under investigation,” Trump attorney John Dowd told Fox News.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted that former FBI Director James Comey repeatedly said Trump was not under investigation earlier this year.
Mueller, who now has a team of 16 attorneys, was brought on as special counsel in May. Prior to his involvement, federal prosecutors reportedly had been using another grand jury, in Alexandria, Va., to help with their criminal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The Flynn case focuses on his work in the private sector on behalf of foreign interests.
Asked Thursday about the Journal report, the special counsel’s office had no comment.
Trump and his allies have in recent weeks openly criticized Mueller, with one Republican lawmaker even calling for him to step aside.
Other lawmakers have responded with proposals that could serve to shield Mueller from being fired.
Trump also has fumed about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia case, which cleared the way for Mueller’s eventual appointment — though Sessions has recently been told by the White House his job is considered safe.
Thomas Zeno, a former federal prosecutor, told the Journal that impaneling a grand jury is “confirmation that this is a very vigorous investigation going on.”
Zeno cautioned the step does not automatically mean Mueller will bring charges but added “it shows he is very serious. He wouldn’t do this if [the investigation] were winding down.”
As I sit down to write this post after a very long second day of a new assignment given to me by the company I work for, images are playing through my head after reading this article.
I am remembering the night of November 8, 2016..tthe scene of astonishment, disbelief, and unstoppable grief among Hillary Supporters…from those who had gathered to hear her presumed Victory Speech who were sent on they way by John Podesta to the panel of anchors and “Poltiical Pundits” on MSNBC who were so dejected that they resembled an extended version of the painting of the solemn farmer and his wife by Grant Wood, titled “American Gothic”.
The unstoppable grief of Modern American Liberals over the victory of Donald J. Trump has led them to carry on a National Temper Tantrum highlighted by Fake News Stories, unsubstantiated rumors, and Machiavellian plans and schemes being carried out in the halls of our Nation’s Capitol.
Which brings me to the next images running through my head…scenes from the classic movie starring Jimmy Stewart, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”.
Naive and idealistic Jefferson Smith, leader of the Boy Rangers, is appointed on a lark by the spineless governor of his state. He is reunited with the state’s senior senator–presidential hopeful and childhood hero, Senator Joseph Paine. In Washington, however, Smith discovers many of the shortcomings of the political process as his earnest goal of a national boys’ camp leads to a conflict with the state political boss, Jim Taylor. Taylor first tries to corrupt Smith and then later attempts to destroy Smith through a scandal.
I have been chronicling since President Trump’s Campaign started as to how he threated to upset the Washingtonian Status Quo and how the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans as well, viewed him as an “outsider” unfit to hold the highest office in the land.
Follow me, boys and girls…
Mueller’s 16 lawyers who are investigating for corruption are Democrats who donate to the DNC.
Therefore, they are hardly “objective”.
As I have written before, the frenzy which those who are still grieving Hillary’s loss have built themselves into as a group resembles the mentality of an old West Lynch Mob.
And, that mob stretches from UC Berkeley to Capitol Hill.
They want a hanging, and by gum, there WILL be a “hanging”, even is it has to be Donald Trump, Jr., in order to teach the President a “lesson” as to who is REALLY in charge of this country.
Being the minority Political Ideology in America has never stopped Modern American Liberals from trying to enforce their will upon the American people.
On November 8th, the Electoral College, put in place by our Founding Fathers, stopped them.
The Russia-Trump Collusion Fairy Tale is their attempt to circumvent our Constitution.
And , it is apparent that Mueller is a part of “The Resistance”.
And, all of us average Americans, living between the coasts, who put Trump in office are watching the biggest “railroading” of a public official in our nation’s history.
Mr. President, it’s not time to “Drain the Swamp”.
It’s time to FLUSH IT!
Until He Comes,
