Trump: “Sessions Should Stop This Rigged Witch Hunt!”
Ask President Trump if he’s even slightly worried about Robert Mueller and his phony “obstruction of justice” charges.
If you hesitate to answer, just take a look at the president’s tweets from Wednesday. A man concerned that he might be impeached or indicted on obstruction charges does not blast the man investigating him on the most public forum of all, nor does he suggest strongly that his attorney general should shut the entire farce down immediately. Trump is not afraid of Robert Mueller, but he is getting damned tired of this investigation stealing his time, dominating his headlines, and drawing attention away from one of the most revolutionary agendas in White House history.
“This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further,” Trump wrote. “Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”
The president has had a lot of strong words about the Russia investigation and the special counsel specifically, but these may have been his strongest yet. So strong, in fact, that several liberal news outlets and Democrats jumped to accuse Trump of obstructing justice on Twitter. Which is, as even the weakest-minded of his critics must know, an absurd impossibility that sheds light on how silly this entire investigation actually is. As though the Justice Department is going to sack Mueller and give the president and his campaign a clean bill of health just because Trump criticized the investigation on Twitter.
Still, Sarah Sanders had to confirm for the slow-witted press that the president’s tweet did not constitute “an order.”
“It’s the president’s opinion,” she said, stating the obvious for those members of the press too stupid or too biased to see what’s right in front of them. “The president’s not obstructing, he’s fighting back.”
According to the AP, President Trump is deeply upset about the trial of his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who is currently facing charges that have exactly nothing to do with 2016 Russian interference. We don’t know whether the AP has their facts straight or not – you really never know these days – but we don’t blame the president for being angry. Mueller and his team of prosecutors are using every dirty trick in the book to convince Manafort to flip and start telling stories out of school.
It hasn’t occurred to them that there are no stories to tell.
