Robert Mueller’s witch hunt might be coming to an end. President Trump promised Wednesday to become personally involved in the Justice Department probe.
“A Rigged System — They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal ‘justice?’ At some point, I will have no choice but
to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!” Trump tweeted.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein fired back immediately.
“The Justice Department is independent of inappropriate political considerations,” said Rosenstein.
Trump has been extraordinarily patient. Mueller’s investigation is a blot on his presidency, an unnecessary distraction. There’s absolutely no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. The investigation is still churning.
“You look at the corruption at the top of the FBI, it’s a disgrace. And our Justice Department — which I try and stay away from, but at some point, I won’t — our Justice Department should be looking at that kind of stuff, not the nonsense of collusion with Russia. There is no collusion with me and everyone knows it,” Trump told Fox last month.
Trump wants to use his influence to bring the matter to a close. It’s been going on for too long. Mueller hasn’t found anything that he can charge Trump with.
A few Trump associates have been less fortunate. Mueller’s investigation hasn’t been a total flop. Most notably, Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been implicated. Last month his office, home, and hotel room were raided.
Democrats are out for blood. They’re not going to let up on the witch hunt until Trump is ruined. That’s the only reason Mueller was hired. If Trump doesn’t exert his power, the investigation might go on indefinitely.
Trump isn’t afraid of being charged because he didn’t do anything wrong. He is, however, annoyed by Mueller.
