President Trump has taken to Twitter, (no surprise there), to give a tweet-lashing to Robert Mueller and his litany of lunatic investigators today.
Mueller, who has been investigating the bizarre and bogus claims of Kremlin collusion during the 2016 presidential election, took his role in an unexpected turn today as he filed formal charges against two members of the Trump campaign team. While Mueller is tasked with looking into the issues of 2016 only, it seems that Bobby has given himself a wider berth than previously intended…at least according to the charges brought against former Trump campaign member Paul Manafort.
Manafort, who was charged and turned himself in today, stands accused of a number of improprieties…none of which reflect on his time with the Trump campaign. This has led many to worry that Mueller has gone off the rails in his investigation, and could now be leading a bonafide witch hunt of Salem-esque proportions.
The President was none too thrilled when the news broke today, and promptly let the world know how he feels.
“President Trump fired back on Monday in an attempt to distance his White House from the grand jury indictments of his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an aide, noting their crimes were committed ‘years’ before they worked on the campaign.
“The president led a chorus of critics of the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, noting that the crimes for which Manafort and his aide, Rick Gates, are charged appear to predate the presidential campaign by years.
“’Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????’ Trump tweeted Monday. ‘….Also, there is NO COLLUSION!’
“Manafort and Gates were indicted by a federal grand jury Friday on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign banks and financial accounts. The indictments were announced Monday.”
The President’s complaints are merely echoing those of the American people as well, who have recognized Mueller’s bizarre investigation for what it is: A fishing expedition with box full of dynamite.
Whether or not the relative sanctity of the White House will be upturned by the nosey and out-of-his-league Mueller has yet to be determined, but if the Special Counsel truly is sniffing around for years-old crumbs, very little seems out of the question.
