Trump Comes Down HARD on Mueller, Demands Meeting to Discuss…

Donald Trump is soaring high after a powerful and successful diplomatic maneuver to corner North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Is Robert Mueller next on Trump’s 4D chess hit list?  According to some sources, yes.

For months, the unconventional president has been seemingly juggling chainsaws, artfully maneuvering himself around the loud, whirring, and deadly business end of a number of these Beltway tools.  First, he was tasked with taking down the most hellacious of all democratic contenders, Hillary Clinton, who not only seemed like a shoe-in, she also seemed to know it.  Her campaign was widely regarded, in retrospect, to be nothing more than a collection of inevitabilities.

She erroneously carried this arrogance with her all the way to the bitter end, refusing to concede to Donald Trump on the night of the election.

Instead, Clinton allegedly went on a drunken rampage, possibly assaulting her campaign manager, alien and UFO enthusiast Tony Podesta.  She eventually, and presumably after a few glasses of water and some aspirin, conceded the election later the next day.

This irked more than a few patriotic Americans at the time:

 

Of course, we can’t leave out a good conspiracy theory either:

Remember, Trump had work to do.  It wasn’t as though Hillary’s refusal didn’t impact the President-Elect.  It certainly did, and it was a cowardly reminder of the moral abyss lying deep in the depths of the democratic party.  It’s all about them, and Hillary’s silly concession stunt proves it.

Once the President-Elect was able to set this bit of “resistance” schtick behind him, a new threat appeared on the horizon in the form of a congressional investigation into his own campaign actions, to be spearheaded by former FBI Chief Robert Mueller – a man who American pundits believed wholeheartedly was biased toward Hillary Clinton and the democrats.  Soon, Mueller began fishing, and his net was forced to grow as weeks of fruitless harvest had his men chasing scraps.

“According to a CNN article, Mueller’s investigators could be looking into financial records relating to the Trump Organization that are unrelated to the 2016 election. According to these reports, ‘sources described an investigation that has widened to focus on possible financial crimes, some unconnected to the 2016 election.’ The piece goes on to cite law enforcement sources who say non-Russia-related leads that ‘involve Trump associates’ are being referred to the special counsel ‘to encourage subjects of the investigation to cooperate.’
 “This information is deeply concerning to me. It does not take a lawyer or even a former federal prosecutor like myself to conclude that investigating Donald Trump’s finances or his family’s finances falls completely outside of the realm of his 2016 campaign and allegations that the campaign coordinated with the Russian government or anyone else. That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel.
“In fact, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s letter appointing special counsel Robert Mueller does not give Mueller broad, far-reaching powers in this investigation. He is only authorized to investigate matters that involved any potential links to and coordination between two entities — the Trump campaign and the Russian government. People are wrongly pointing to, and taking out of context, the phrase ‘any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation’ to characterize special counsel’s authority as broad.”
So, in this context, we have to believe that President Trump would be well within his rights to question Mueller’s scope, especially given that we have explicit knowledge of what looks like an infraction right before us.
But, President Trump is smarter than that.
One of the left’s most powerful weapons is the court of public opinion.  That is why were are still hearing about someone named “Stormy Daniels” weeks after we stopped caring – because the left needs to keep the sleaze-o-tron aimed and firing at our Commander and Chief at all times in order to compete in the 2018 midterms and 2020 elections.
For Trump to not engage in the rhetorical narrative of the liberal media means that he, and he alone, can conduct the symphony of Mueller’s coming storm.  He is clearly in the driver’s seat, and will remain there until such a time as the President flexes, not the Special Counsel.
And, from the look of it, that day may be here.
“President Donald Trump’s lawyers are seeking to negotiate a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller that uses an interview with the president as leverage to spur a conclusion to the Russia investigation, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

“The president’s legal team is considering telling Mr. Mueller that Mr. Trump would agree to a sit-down interview based on multiple considerations, including that the special counsel commit to a date for concluding at least the Trump-related portion of the investigation. One idea is to suggest a deadline of 60 days from the date of the interview, the person said.

“Another consideration for the legal team is reaching an agreement with Mr. Mueller on the scope of his questioning of the president, which they expect to focus largely on his decision to fire former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former FBI director James Comey, according to people familiar with the matter.”

Will Mueller take the bait?  The jury is still out on that one, but that hasn’t stopped America from chiming in on the news.
