Things in the nation’s capital are ostensibly tense these days, with Robert Mueller telegraphing what appears to be the end of his investigation into a wild democratic conspiracy theory.
We all remember the impetus of this nonsense: A dejected and soon-to-be-defeated Hillary Clinton spouting off during the 2016 presidential debates about some grand scheme involving the Kremlin, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, The KGB, and whoever else’s name she could muster before being besieged by yet another of her unstoppable coughing fits.
What Hillary was alleging was that Donald Trump was some sort of Russian double agent, who was being propped up by the Kremlin as they interfered in our electoral process.
What really happened, despite Clinton’s attempt to commandeer the narrative with her hilariously titled book, was that Wikileaks got a hold of emails from within her campaign, and dutifully allowed the American people to inform themselves about Hillary and her minions’ longstanding attempts to subvert American democracy in order to accumulate wealth and power.
Still Clinton, pushed the Russian conspiracy theory to the ends of the earth, somehow convincing democrats to push for a Special Counsel investigation into the accusations. Now, nearly a year later, Robert Mueller looks to be wrapping up his sham search, and Donald Trump does not seem too pleased with the way the DOJ may or may not have been involved.
President Trump lashed out at his own Justice Department again on Wednesday, tearing into officials for not cooperating with document requests from congressional Republicans while warning he could “use the powers” of the presidency to intervene in the dispute.
“A Rigged System – They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress,” the president tweeted, in an apparent swipe at the Justice Department.
Trump said, “What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal ‘justice?’ At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!”
The president didn’t specify the documents he says the DOJ won’t release. He also didn’t say which presidential powers he is referring to, though it could be anything from declassifying files to extracting documents sought by Congress to perhaps intervening in the Russia probe.
Last week, Trump said during an interview on “Fox and Friends” that he tries to “stay away” from the Justice Department’s affairs, “but at some point I won’t.” He suggested the DOJ hasn’t adequately scrutinized former FBI Director James Comey and others amid the focus on the Russia probe.
It wouldn’t be too surprising to find out that Trump’s diatribe was related to the ridiculous and unwavering belief that the left maintains in the controversial “Steele Dossier”- a document that suggests the existence of salacious blackmail ammunition held by Russia to be used against the President. Now that rumors are swirling about the true genesis of this unverifiable information, the President could be considering using his authority to blow the entire farce out of the water.
