The general feeling in Washington D.C. is that Robert Mueller is moving toward a grand finale in his Russian election-meddling probe, and this finality has some lawmakers scrambling to tip the scales.
For months and months this bogus investigation has dragged on, with the American people growing ever more tired of it everyday. Mueller has gone off the rails, according to those close to the probe, venturing deep into civilian Donald Trump financial records in order to build his cockamamy case. The entire fiasco has become such a crude joke in Washington that legislators are now actively looking for avenues to dismiss Mueller and his goons, before the entire nation is embarrassed by him.
Still, Mueller presses on; nose-down and hungry for some “resistance” version of justice.
And this is where the republicans on Capitol Hill give the Special Counsel’s leash a good, hard tug, and remind the on-loan bloodhound who’s in charge.
“Amid new signs that special counsel Robert Mueller is pursuing an obstruction of justice case against President Donald Trump, Republicans in Congress have intensified their own investigations of the Justice Department’s and FBI’s handling of inquiries into Trump’s ties to Russia.
“Tuesday brought several dramatic developments in the Russia saga, including the news that Mueller recently interviewed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the first Cabinet official known to be questioned in the investigation. The New York Times also reported that former FBI Director James Comey was interviewed by Mueller last year.
“But even as Mueller showed apparent momentum, Republicans made new charges of political bias and even potential criminal misconduct in the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.”
The FBI has been recently embroiled in a number of scandals, specifically stemming from the personal behavior and biases of a number of the agents working on the Mueller team.
One of the most significant bits of information gleaned in the probe of the FBI has been the existence of a “secret society” within the organization that met separately from the remainder of the Bureau’s population. Peter Strzok, one of the agents whose text messages have been revealed in the investigation, had mentioned this clandestine cabal in text exchanges with his mistress. Strzok’s record is far from complete, however, with the FBI claiming to have “lost” approximately 5 months of the texts from the agent’s phone.
Now, we must wait to watch Mueller’s recoil to determine how the next set of moves will play out. Will the Special Counsel surprise the White House with a premature charge, or will Emperor Mueller’s wardrobe be empty when it comes time to wrap this up?
