Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been plugging away his suppose “Russian Collusion” investigation for months with nothing concrete to show for it.
While there have been indictments and arrests, (two so far, to be exact), the crimes detailed in those actions were not related to the Donald Trump campaign of 2016, reiterating the assumption that Mueller is conducting nothing more than a wide-ranging fishing expedition and is hellbent on being a nuisance to the republican party.
Meanwhile, in a bit of delicious irony with a side of “I told you so”, the DNC is collapsing under the weight of revelations outlining Hillary Clinton’s corrupt takeover of the organization, and her involvement with a thoroughly unverifiable dossier of salacious information regarding the President. Mueller’s secret overlords are apparently in even more hot water than those he is investigating, yet the probe moves forward.
To step back and take a gander at the larger picture give us a terrifying view of what could be on the horizon, should Mueller fend off the myriad of calls for his ouster that have sprung up in recent weeks. Sounding the alarm is Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida.
“Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about tax reform, which he called a ‘work in progress.’ He also discussed his call for the removal of Robert Mueller as special counsel in the investigation of Russian influence on the 2016 election.
“Marlow suggested the Republican establishment was trying to ‘run out the clock’ on Trump’s presidency, delaying the passage of legislation that would improve the president’s standing with the public in the hope that an impeachment drama might remove him from office or that he will lose his re-election bid in 2020.
“’We’re at a real risk, Andrew, of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable special prosecutor with clear conflicts of interest to spend more than a year undermining the duly elected President of the United States. It’s ludicrous,’ Gaetz replied.
“’That’s one of the reasons I have called for Mueller to be removed as the special counsel,’ he continued. ‘As early as 2009, we knew that Russia was using bribery and extortion to undermine our uranium assets. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that just about that time, you’ve got hundreds of thousands of dollars going to Bill Clinton, and you’ve got Hillary Clinton at the State Department not saying peep as we put our national security at risk.'”
Gaetz certainly isn’t wrong, and he highlighted his concerns further during his time on the program.
In the case of Robert Mueller, Gaetz articulated his serious concern over Mueller’s tactics; specifically the fact that the Special Counsel is still working virtually in secret and behind closed doors. This gives the impression of a clandestine witch hunt as opposed to the investigation being help at the behest of the American people, (who wholly disapprove of the idea to begin with).
