Americans are tired of hearing about Robert Mueller.
The special prosecutor’s ongoing investigation has trapped a few people in legal snares but the promised result still hasn’t come. The supposed collusion with Russia that prompted the farce hasn’t been proven. Probably because it didn’t happen.
A new poll this week showed that voters dislike Mueller. 30% of Americans admit to having an unfavorable view of Mueller. Only 20% had a negative view in March. The investigation is heating up but Mueller isn’t winning any points because of it.
Mainstream media outlets are stuffing Mueller’s story down the public’s throat. MSNBC and CNN constantly imply that President Trump is on the verge of being led out in handcuffs. Their lies were more effective a year ago when they first began uttering them. Interest in the Mueller investigation is fizzling out.
Instead of doing something important, Democrats in Congress are busying themselves with a bill that blocks Trump from firing Mueller. The measure has absolutely no chance of being passed by the House or the Senate but Democrats are still wasting their time with it.
“It’s about as popular as cholera with the leader in the Senate and it’s about as popular as malaria in the House,” said Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary panel. “I think most people think we’re picking an unnecessary fight with the president.”
Democrats would be wise to choose another angle if they want to continue attacking Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admitted that even if the ridiculous bill was somehow passed by Congress, why on Earth would President Trump agree to turn it into law?
“Just as a practical matter, even if we pass it, why would he sign it?” McConnell said.
The Mueller investigation shows no sign of slowing down.
