As we quickly approach the one year anniversary of the onset of Robert Mueller’s ridiculous probing of President Donald Trump, there is little doubt that the entire investigation has gone off of the rails.
That’s not so say that it hasn’t been “off the rails” from the onset, because, if we’re being honest, it totally has. We have to remember that the impetus of this entire investigation comes to us from absurdities uttered by the queen of corruption herself, Hillary Clinton, during her abysmal debate performances against Donald Trump during her doomed democratic bid for the White House in 2016. These accusations were little more than the dying curses of a soon-to-be-vanquished foe, who, in their figurative dying breath, cursed the very electoral system on which they once hoped to conquer.
It’s sore loser syndrome to the umpteenth degree. Of course, this was reiterated by Clinton’s own meltdowns after her loss, and her refusal to concede the contest until well into the following day.
Then, the shellshocked former First Lady did the unthinkable and continued to refuse belief in the results, claiming that Russian influence on the election itself was to blame for her harrowing loss. (She makes no mention of her own history of corruption and DNC collusion, of course).
And all of this brings us to Robert Mueller, Special Counsel, digging around and and all things “Trump” for the last 10 months. On more than one occasion, Mueller’s investigation has been called into question, given the absurd scope of the fishing trip.
A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!

Now, as the probe pushes further into the backstory behind Donald Trump and his team, (and further every day from some sort of Russian conspiracy theory), the Trump legal team is taking a beating.
President Donald Trump’s lead lawyer, John Dowd, has resigned from the President’s personal legal team handling the response to the Russia investigation.
“I love the President and wish him well,” Dowd said in a statement to CNN’s Gloria Borger.
Dowd’s resignation comes as Trump has stepped up his attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller and days after Dowd said in a statement the investigation should end, initially claiming he was speaking for the President before saying he was only speaking for himself.
“John Dowd is a friend and has been a valuable member of our legal team. We will continue our ongoing representation of the President and our cooperation with the Office of Special Counsel,” said Jay Sekulow, counsel to the President.
While the left will likely revel in this move, claiming that it is some sort of sign from the heavens that Trump is about to take a fall, the reality is likely far more mundane.
Mueller has had ample opportunities to take down the Trump administration over the course of the last 10 months, if he actually had anything to work with. Given the number of process charges he has filed, (commonly referred to as “nothing burgers”), there doesn’t seem to be much substance behind the pomp and circumstance; no fire behind the smoke.
