This has been an extremely interesting week for the President, who has been battling a heap of criticism via the Robert Mueller witch hunt, while still wading through the praise he received for his international feats of diplomacy.
As the President was celebrating the first crowning achievement of his Presidency, as North Korea backs off of their nuclear ledge and officially end the Korean War after six decades, it became public knowledge that the Commander in Chief would make an appearance at the National Rifle Association’s annual meetings – making him the first sitting President since The Gipper to do so.
Of course, Donald Trump being Donald Trump, we would expect nothing less than a smidgeon of controversy when the President took the podium in front of his fellow patriots…and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
Basking in the glow of a federal judge’s intense scrutiny of Robert Mueller’s intentions in the #RussiaGate hoax, Trump took the opportunity to lay into the Special Counsel from the podium in Dallas, Texas.
President Trump slammed Robert Mueller’s team before a massive audience in Texas on Friday, hours after a federal judge rebuked the special counsel’s office at a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
“It’s what I’ve been saying for a long time, it’s a witch hunt,” Trump told the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Dallas, Texas.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III told Mueller’s team earlier Friday that they “don’t really care” about Manafort — who is seeking the dismissal of an 18-count indictment on tax and bank fraud-related charges — and accused them of being more interested in information leading to a possible impeachment of Trump.
The judge also demanded to see an unredacted version of the “scope memo,” a document outlining the scope of the Russia probe.
Trump, in his speech to the NRA, read from news reports on Ellis’ remarks approvingly, particularly quotes from the judge that asked what the charges had to do with the campaign — considering they indicted Manafort on alleged crimes dating back as far back as 2005.
“It’s really a disgrace,” Trump said, while calling the judge “really something very special.”
Trump, as well as the American people have been completely disgusted by the Robert Mueller investigation from the get-go, having bucked back against the liberal notion that this is more than just some bewildering conspiracy theory cooked up by John Podesta and his out of this world overlord Hillary Clinton.
