I am glad to see President Trump realizes Special Counsel Mueller is no straight shooter as this quote says, “There is no question these leaks give ammunition to critics to question the credibility and nonpartisan nature of the special counsel,” Jeffress said. “But I do wonder why they’ve adopted this strategy of attacking Mueller, who I know to be a straight shooter. He’s made no findings and if they’re confident he’s going to clear Trump in all of this, I think it’d be better to just push him to bring a speedy end to it all.”
You have got to be kidding! Mueller has not been put in the position to “bring a speedy end to it all.” Mueller was always aligned with James Comey and always will be. President Trump is not falling for the façade of this special counsel any longer. Those who have eyes to see do see. We all see exactly what is going on, and we will not take it sitting down!
Trump’s Team is upset to say the least about a story that appeared Wednesday in the Washington Post. They surely should be! Five anonymous sources alleged that Trump being targeted in an obstruction of justice investigation for allegedly attempting to bury an FBI probe into former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. When you think it is over, never be too sure about that with this special counsel.
To beat it all it was published on Trump’s birthday, a week after the White House believed the allegations of election collusion with Russia, was viewed by Trump’s allies as evidence that the story was planted by law enforcement officials to ensure a shadow of suspicion would remain. We know that James Comey actually attempted to pay for the fake dossier from a company Hillary Clinton hired to dig up dirt on Trump. You cannot make this stuff up!
It is unclear whether the Post story was leaked by the special counsel, the FBI, former FBI director James Comey and his allies, or witnesses that have been contacted by those law enforcement agencies as part of the investigation. What a meandering stream of perps we have here, and it just continues to meander on.
“The Special Counsel’s Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures that deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct,” Mueller spokesman Peter Carr told The Hill. Sure, raise your hand if you believe this! In fact, Mueller’s best friend, James Comey, admits himself to be a “leaker”…a big one! But I am sure Mueller will ignore that.
Trump has chimed in on Twitter, saying Wednesday that “conflicted people” are running the “single greatest witch hunt in American political history.” Aside from Trump’s tweets, though, the White House is taking a backseat in the offensive, referring all questions about the special counsel to the president’s outside lawyers. Trump is right again, and I am thankful for his outside lawyers.
It has also been reported Vice President Pence has hired an outside lawyer, and I am glad to see him taking this step. We need every outside lawyer we can get to bring down these haters of President Trump.
Trump’s lead outside counsel, Mark Kasowitz responded to the Post story by decrying the “illegal” leaks, which he said had come directly from the FBI. That is what I think, too…the FBI again.
Jay Sekulow, a new member of Trump’s legal team, went on Fox News Channel to say that the leaks may have come from inside Mueller’s special counsel. Sekulow asked why the FBI is “not sending agents to people’s houses” to put an end to it. I am glad to see Jay Sekulow join Trump’s legal team!
The RNC’s rapid response team sent a flurry of emails to reporters on Thursday highlighting comments from legal experts who said there is no case for obstruction of justice. They also circulated talking points for surrogates to respond specifically to the Post story.
The message: The “illegal” leaks are the only crime that has been committed and they came directly from the FBI or the special counsel’s office as part of “an effort to undermine the president.”
The RNC says there is no case for obstruction charges, but if an obstruction investigation exists, it’s because the special counsel is trying to “save face” after the collusion probe didn’t go anywhere.
Trump is lining up an excellent legal defense team. His point man is Marc Kasowitz, a brash attorney who has defended Trump in several lawsuits. But Kasowitz has no experience in constitutional law, so Trump is augmenting his legal team. Among his legal eagles is Jay Sekulow, and I praise his choice.
On ABC’s “This Week,” Jay Sekulow, who reportedly has joined President Trump’s defense team to go after Robert Mueller, was asked whether Trump would promise not to interfere or attempt at any time to order the deputy attorney general to fire Mueller.
“The president is going to seek the advice of his counsel, inside the government as well as outside, and I’m not going to speculate on what he will or will not do,” he said.
“Right now, the role of the president is to govern the United States of America. He’s going to do that.”
Sekulow, a longtime conservative activist, said the president would leave anything else to the lawyers.
“But I can’t imagine that that issue is going to arise,” he said.
“But that again is an issue that the president with his advisers would discuss if there was a basis.”
I am having problems with YouTube. I hope this video will work.
