It seems that Robert Mueller has ramped up his ego in recent weeks, after the true press of the world wide web has thoroughly dismantled what little semblance of relevance he once had as an investigator.
What began as a bizarre conspiracy theory spewing forth from the mouth of Hillary Clinton during the election of 2016 has now morphed into something utterly desperate and despicable. Robert Mueller’s #RussiaGate witch hunt has spiraled into absurdity in 2018, with a number of weak process charges being filed against a number of loose acquaintances of the President, with absolutely no evidence of collusion to show for them. Instead, Mueller is simply picking off low-level associates and charging them with what amounts to paperwork fraud.
It’s a joke, if we’re being honest, and the purpose behind the probe is clearly to delegitimize the President of the United States simply because he’s not part of the Deep State “club”.
So, as the nation turns against Mueller, nearly reaching that 50% or lower approval rate needed for the President to make a confident move in shutting it down, the Special Counsel has turned ornery, revoking Paul Manafort’s bail and sending the Trump associate directly to jail.
A judge on Friday sent longtime Republican political operator and businessman Paul Manafort to jail pending trial after a charge of witness tampering, the latest episode in a slow fall from grace of a man who was President Donald Trump’s campaign chairman in 2016.
Manafort, a target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. election, has been indicted on mostly financial-related charges, including conspiring to launder money and defraud the United States. He has pleaded not guilty.
Manafort had been on home confinement in Virginia, and was required to wear an electronic monitoring device. Last week, Mueller charged him in a new indictment with witness tampering, which Manafort pleaded not guilty to on Friday.
All right, Bobby. We get it. You need to appear as though you’re in charge here. It’s just too bad that, well, you’re not.
In one of his most forceful attacks on the special counsel yet, Rudy Giuliani on Friday said the Russia investigation could get “cleaned up” with pardons from President Trump in light of Paul Manafort being sent to jail.
“When the whole thing is over, things might get cleaned up with some presidential pardons,” the former New York mayor told the Daily News.
Giuliani’s stunning remark came hours after a Washington, D.C., judge revoked Manafort’s bail and ordered him to remain behind bars while awaiting his September trial on charges relating to his shady pro-Russian business dealings in Ukraine. The ruling came after Robert Mueller’s investigators alleged the ex-Trump campaign chairman had attempted to secure false testimony from potential witnesses in the Russia probe.
Giuliani, who worked as a federal prosecutor for nearly a decade, claimed he had seen no evidence to warrant locking up Manafort.
So keep racking up your process crimes and your public fervor, and keep wishing that it all amount to something at the end of this farce. But, Bobby, you mustn’t forget the old adage about wanting a wish in one hand and something entirely different in the other…we’ll guarantee that the latter fills up first.
