The days of democrats complaining over the speed at which Special Counsel Robert Mueller is working are likely over, as the FBI and Special Counsel come under fire once again this week.
Mueller’s investigation into the left wing conspiracy theory regarding President Trump’s double life as some sort of Kremlin spy was crawling along at a snail’s pace, burning months and months of time looking into ways to disparage and delegitimize the Commander in Chief. Now, however, a newly released FBI memo, outlining serious abuses by the agency in order to surveil leads in the Trump investigation has called the entire bureau in question.
Mueller will need to hit the gas if he plans on outrunning the executioner.
Now, two lawyers who once worked with the Special Counsel believe that things may already be picking up the pace in the probe, with an indictment of the President himself coming in the spring.
“While many legal experts contend that Mueller lacks the standing to bring criminal charges against Trump, at least two attorneys working with clients swept up in the Russia probe told POLITICO they consider it possible that Mueller could indict the president for obstruction of justice.
“Neither attorney claimed to have specific knowledge of Mueller’s plans. Both based their opinions on their understanding of the law; one also cited his interactions with the special counsel’s team, whose interviews have recently examined whether Trump tried to derail the probe into his campaign’s Russia ties.
“’If I were a betting man, I’d bet against the president,’ said one of the lawyers.
“The second attorney, who represents a senior Trump official, speculated that Mueller could try to bring an indictment against Trump even if he expects the move to draw fierce procedural challenges from the president’s lawyers – if only to demonstrate the gravity of his findings.”
This nonchalant amateur adjudication notwithstanding, Mueller still has a whole lot of work to do in not only convincing the DOJ that he’s on the up-and-up, but also in convincing the American people of his righteousness.
What Mueller and his team are forgetting, and what a great many politicians are forgetting, is that We The People truly run this great nation. The President himself reminded us on Tuesday night in the State of The Union, with statements that resembled subtle threats aimed at lawmakers who abuse the system.
