While most Americans find that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is lurching ahead at a disabled snail’s pace in regards to President Donald Trump and the investigation into his supposed Russian connections, there are rumors that the witch hunt may be drawing to a close. Already, Mr. Trump has said that he has no qualms about sitting in front of Mueller and looking him in the eyes.
Now, MSN News reports that those cited only as “former U.S. officials” have said that Mueller “appears to be wrapping up at least one key part of his investigation — whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.”
So far, “Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey” have all be interviewed by Robert Mueller. CIA Director Mike Pompeo has also been in front of the Special Counsel.
These are people who are said to know something about why the White House fired former F.B.I. Director James Comey and his National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn. The most annoying part of this is that we already know why both firings happened. Comey had said that Mrs. Clinton faced a situation where thousands of new emails were found, only to say later that they were duplicates.
As for firing Flynn, he did not report certain meetings to Mr. Trump and he was tied into everything from Turkish prisoners and shady nuclear power plant deals.
“Clearly the names that are coming out now indicate that we’re into the obstruction of justice side of it,” observed Stanley Twardy, a “former U.S. attorney for Connecticut who’s now a white-collar criminal defense lawyer at the law firm Day Pitney LLP.”
“He’s now getting people who are closest to the president, closest to the issues,” Twardy also said of Mueller.
Special Counsel is preparing to talk to Mr. Trump himself, something that the president welcomes. “I’m looking forward to it. I would love to do it, I would do it under oath.” These are not the words of a man with anything to hide. He seems interested in getting it over with so that he can go about the people’s business of making America great again, as he has promised to do often.
The Commander in Chief has also said, “There’s no collusion whatsoever. There’s been no obstruction whatsoever.” It seems that what there is, however, is a deep state that wants nothing more than to condemn Mr. Trump and to remove him from office for sins that he never committed.
While it may appear to be taking eons to accomplish, Jeffrey Cramer, a former federal prosecutor, said that “it’s fair to say Mueller’s moving expeditiously.” He added that “interviewing this president on these wide-ranging issues is a prosecutor’s dream.”
Cramer seems to feel quite differently than Donald Trump. He opined, “There are several data points out there that point to a viable obstruction of justice charge against the president. The interesting thing is you have hubris involved here. This is not a normal president.”
Well, maybe that confidence is because America’s leader knows that there really are no “data points” showing anything of the kind and he is tired of being accused of it falsely while trying to run a country!
Twardy stated, “I don’t think Mr. Mueller would ever try to make legal precedent at the expense of a sitting president in the context of an obstruction of justice charge. He wants to hear Trump’s side of the story. It will be important for him to look at Trump’s state of mind.”
If Mr. Trump was guilty, the prosecutor will do his best to trip up the president, something that seems to instill very little fear in the U.S. leader. After all, signs have pointed to this whole investigation being the work of Democrats, the DNC, Fusion GPS, and a former U.K. spy hired in part by Mrs. Clinton.
Trump, then, welcomes his right to say it openly in court…even under oath.
