McConnell Stops Bill Designed to Protect Mueller’s Job

“Every bit of this is about getting Donald Trump. The Washington establishment cannot allow for Donald Trump to succeed. He’s an outsider.” – Rush Limbaugh

The Associated Press reports that

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday thwarted a bipartisan effort to protect special counsel Robert Mueller’s job, saying he will not hold a floor vote on the legislation even if it is approved next week in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

McConnell said the bill is unnecessary because President Donald Trump will not fire Mueller.

“We’ll not be having this on the floor of the Senate,” McConnell said on Fox News.

His comments came amid widespread opposition to the bill among members of his caucus, with several GOP senators saying the bill is unconstitutional. Others said it’s simply not good politics to try and tell Trump what to do, likening the legislation to “poking the bear.”

The bipartisan legislation was introduced last week as Trump publicly criticized Mueller, who is investigating potential ties between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president. Trump, fuming about a raid of his personal lawyer’s office by a different division of the FBI, said last week that the Mueller investigation is “an attack on our country” and is “corrupt.”

Trump has also privately pondered firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Mueller’s investigation.

Within a day of Trump’s criticism, Republicans Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina combined two bills they introduced last summer to protect special counsels. They introduced the new bill along with Democratic Sens. Chris Coons of Delaware and Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, announced that his committee would vote on the bill.

The legislation would give any special counsel a 10-day window to seek expedited judicial review of a firing, and would put into law existing Justice Department regulations that require a firing to be for “good cause.”

Democrats immediately jumped on the legislation, but many Republicans have been cool to it.

Well, gosh.

While it is refreshing to see Sen. McConnell act like a Republican Leader for a change, one has to wonder why he is acting as if he has grown a spine overnight.

Well, gentle readers, I have a couple of ideas about that…(I know. You’re shocked.)

  1. Per RasmussenReports.com, President Trump’s job approval poll numbers continue to hover right around the 50% mark, give or take a point either way.  All of the Democratic Party Shenanigans, including the Mueller Prove and the Stormy Daniels Timely Distraction, are not swaying the opinion of those Americans who elected Donald J. Trump to be the 45th President of the United States of America.
  2. The House and Senate are going to have their hands full with another matter in about a month. And, Mueller is going to have his own troubles to worry about.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz expects his wide-ranging report on the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe to be finished next month and has been asked to testify before the House oversight committee on May 8, according to letters reviewed by Fox News.

Now, the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans would not mind if the Mueller Probe went on for all four years of Trump’s First Term.

Trump’s mission, given to him by average Americans, is to drain the swamp of those whose sole mission is to serve themselves by lining their pocketbooks at the expense of the American voter.

Trump, the Billionaire Outsider, is not even taking a Presidential Salary. Instead, every quarter he gives that salary to a worthy charity.

Most of the Professional Politicians sent to DC by voters in the past have gone up there rich and come back home richer.

And, McConnell and the rest know that they have to keep in the good graces of their constituencies to keep getting richer.

As I have written in the past, all of these political strategies being utilized against President Trump have been put in place to slow him down, neutralize him, or even get him out of office, so that he cannot keep his campaign promise to the American people to “Make America Great Again”.

The sad truth of the matter is that the Democratic Party want to keep Americans struggling and divided, as Former President Barack Hussein Obama did.

It is more profitable for the future of their politicians and the popularity of their political philosophy, just as it was for the Politboro in the Soviet Union.

The Democrats, Political Pundits, and the Main Stream Media are still in shock that Hillary Clinton is not the President of the United States of America.

Their quest to regain power by getting rid of President Trump has blinded them to the fact that the American People have to actually vote for them in the Midterm Elections in order for them to regain power in Washington, DC.

That will never happen the way that they appear to the American People right now.

All the Democrats stand for as a party is being opposed to everything that Trump is trying to accomplish while telling Americans that we need to turn over our guns and to put down our Bibles because we are being “divisive” by practicing the “Faith of Our Fathers”.

And, the Democrats still can’t figure out why average Americans are not buying their B.S.
