From its very onset, the Special Counsel’s investigation into the idea that President Donald Trump somehow colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election has seemed just a bit off.
Perhaps this is due to the fact that the entire impetus of the investigation seemed, for a long time, to have come from the wild and wacky assertions of a desperate and doomed Hillary Clinton during the debates leading up to her electoral evisceration by Donald Trump. These accusations sounded more like the flailing fracas of a child’s tantrum than the words of a career politician who simply should have been able to read the writing on the wall.
So when Robert Mueller began digging around for evidence of Clinton’s claims, the nation was appalled.
In the time since the Special Counsel began his investigation, however, we have learned that the Obama administration was actively involved in finding evidence of just such a bizarre claim, sending at least two spies directly into the Trump campaign. This is the only way in which Hillary could have known to mention Russia at all, leading to yet another accusation of collusion for the former First Lady.
Now, as Mueller’s probe faces a massive backlash from We The People, specifically due to his ever-expanding and unruly scope, a subpoena has been issued for an infamous New York City madam and convicted prostitution ring leader who is, of course, not Russian.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Kristin Davis, the former Manhattan Madam involved in the sex scandal that led to New York Governor Elliot Spitzer’s resignation, according to reports.
Davis, previously jailed for running a prostitution ring, revealed Friday that a member of the special counsel’s office notified her attorney that the FBI would serve the former Manhattan Madam unless she agreed to be subpoenaed. “It’s very out-of-the blue for me, very upsetting,” Davis told NBC News. “For them to come to me for information on Russian collusion — I don’t have anything on that.”
The 41-year-old has worked with longtime political operative and Trump ally Roger Stone for nearly a decade. “I’ve been with Roger since 2010 doing web design and writing position papers,” the Manhattan Madam said. Davis launched a failed gubernatorial bid in New York state eight years ago. “Since my campaign I’ve worked for him.” Ander Miller, Davis’s campaign manager and ex-employee of Stone, was subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury last month.
So, this begs the question: What in God’s name is Robert Mueller investigating at this point?
