On Tuesday The Washington Post reported that special counsel Robert Mueller wants to interview President Donald J. Trump for, the paper claimed, citing ‘anonymous sources,’ his motivations for firing his first national security advisor, Michael Flynn, and former FBI Director James Comey.
“Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans,” the Post said.
The objective, it appears, is to establish whether Trump’s decisions were made in an attempt to “obstruct or blunt the special counsel’s probe.”
Additionally, Mueller is said to be interested in Trump’s alleged previous efforts to force out Attorney General Jeff Sessions, though Sessions remains in his position. Sources told the Post it looks like Mueller is attempting to establish a “pattern” of behavior by the president.
There is so much that is wrong with all of this it’s difficult to know where to start. But one thing’s for certain: You can bet your last dollar that obstruction is precisely what Mueller is going for.
First things first: There should never have been a special counsel appointed in the first place. Even IF Trump “colluded” with Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton, an allegation without evidence, it would not have been against the law. Why is that important? Because under statutes guiding the appointment of a special counsel, there has to be suspicion of a crime committed. And thus far, no one — not anyone in the Justice Department, not Mueller, not the FBI — has told us which crime Trump and his campaign and transition staff committed.
Secondly, Trump — as president and head of the Executive Branch — can get up tomorrow morning and go down the list of Executive Branch officials who work for him and fire each and every one of them…for any reason or no reason at all. He’s the president. They all work for him. That included James Comey — and this is to say nothing of his suspected involvement in the political plot hatched by the Obama regime to undermine Trump before the November 2016 election or have him removed from office if he won.
Third, of those who have been targeted and indicted by Mueller’s team, none of those convictions have had anything at all to do with “Russian collusion.” Or the president. Or his campaign.
So what’s Mueller doing? Why would he want to question Trump about his ‘motivations’ for firing whomever he pleased, since he’s allowed to do that, constitutionally and legally?
As former Justice Department prosecutor Andrew McCarthy noted some weeks ago, Mueller has no interest anymore in trying to prove “collusion” because he knows there wasn’t any. (Related: Deep State WAR with Trump proves the people have lost control of their government.)
So his goal is now, and has always been, to see Trump impeached — handing up a report to Congress, perhaps in time for Democrats to have taken over this fall after the 2018 elections, alleging the ‘high crime’ of “obstruction.”
“Bottom line: If the FBI had a collusion case of some kind, after well over a year of intensive investigation, [those charged] would have been pressured to plead guilty to very serious charges — and those serious offenses would be reflected in the charges lodged against [former Trump campaign manager Paul] Manafort,” he wrote in December.
McCarthy, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, further explained that even if Trump fired Comey and pressured others in the Justice Department in an effort to protect Flynn and end the Russian investigation, it would have been within his power as president to do so.
“I continue to believe that this is the real danger for President Trump: A report by the special counsel, either through the grand jury or some other vehicle, concluding a) that the president had obstructed the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and of Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, and (b) recommending that the matter be referred to Congress for consideration of next steps, potentially including impeachment and removal,” he said.
And all stemming from a politically-motivated, phony allegation of “collusion.” (Follow more news on corruption at Corruption.news.)
