The American people certainly haven’t been too fond of the Robert Mueller-led investigation into #RussiaGate – a conspiracy theory the likes of which would have gotten conservatives kicked off of Twitter if they had started it.
For many, the lack of evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Kremlin seems obvious, and the fact that Robert Mueller is spending such an exorbitant amount of time dealing with unrelated process charges against Paul Manafort seems to be a red flag for a stalling, sputtering probe. If Mueller had something, anything, it would be of the utmost importance to national security to divulge it immediately, if Russia was some sort of threat.
He simply hasn’t done that, even with highly biased agents such as Peter Strzok and Lisa Page working under his wing.
Now, as the do-or-die moment seems to be rapidly approaching for the Special Counsel, President Trump is ratcheting up his rhetoric regarding the Russia ruse.
President Donald Trump again dismissed the ongoing Russia investigation conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Monday.
“Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel, only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” the president said.
The president commented in response to the New York Times report that Trump’s White House lawyer Don McGahn met with Mueller for over 30 hours during the course of the investigation, giving him more details about the president’s actions than necessary.
“Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone looking for trouble,” Trump wrote, accusing the special counsel group of “enjoying running people’s lives.”
The American people have been nonplussed as well, with polls showing a sharp decline in support for Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” in recent weeks.
