The drama in D.C. is crescendoing in violent, spastic waves this week, as we stare down an inevitable end to whatever this whole Robert Mueller thing has become.
The Special Counsel was hired to do a job. A hit, technically; a character assassination of the Commander in Chief of the United States of America. An ugly job for anyone, but Mueller owed someone a favor when he pulled that short straw. He had no way to protest.
The pretense was that Russia has somehow stolen our election in 2016, either by crook or book, and Mueller’s job was to make sure that Donald Trump had no part in it himself. So far, that has been the case, with Mueller simply filing a series of small, process charges against some loose-knit Trump associates, hoping that he’ll flip one of the bastards into spilling his proverbial guts.
And again, that hasn’t been the case. Even the GOP, who are still rife with secret anti-Trump factions, refused to indicate the possibility of any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign after thoroughly investigating the matter themselves.
The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the top Republican leading the probe announced on Monday.
The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.
The draft document asserts that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the most politically charged question examined by the committee.
Today, however, a new threat emerged on the horizon for Mueller in the form of information about our favorite disgraced FBI chief, the controversial James Comey.
On Thursday, sources told CNN that the U.S. Department of Justice is expected to release the memos of former FBI Director James Comey to Congress at some point today.
In a January report from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Grassley wrote: “After a review of the seven memoranda created by former Director Comey, it is now clear that four are marked classified at various levels of sensitivity. Former Director Comey reportedly provided copies of four memos to Columbia Law School Professor Daniel Richman. If true, that would mean at least one disclosed memo contained information now-marked classified.”
And this would then mean that…
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), said that releasing Comey’s memos puts Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in serious jeopardy of being “being placed in contempt of Congress and the special counsel investigation of being shut down,” the Washington Examiner reported.
If Rosenstein goes down, so does the entire house of cards on which Mueller built this lie.
And while that thought may sound promising now, just think of how whiny the liberals are going to be if that happens.
