The Memo: Will Mueller play hardball with Trump?
I read this article and it describes the pros and cons of Mueller pushing the point to interview the President. Rudi Guliani and Joe DeGenova make very strong Points for the President not only to avoid testifying but to continue to push back against the investigation to get them to indict or close shop.
Mueller is a bully; bullies back down, so the answer to this is no he won’t play hard ball because he can’t win. I don’t believe he has any evidence that the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia to cheat Hillary out of the Presidency; I don’t believe it because if it happened they would have discovered something to prove it and we would have heard about it in the news already. They can’t keep that big a secret.
Every time they thought that had the Holy Grail the news went crazy reporting that now they have it and now they can Impeach Trump, but every time they had to back down and admit they still had nothing.
It’s unlikely in the extreme that Trump Colluded with Russia to win the election, therefore there won’t be any evidence to prove it. They went into this investigation convinced the Trump cheated so there must be evidence! Early on they must have realized there was no evidence, they also had to realize the fake dossier is the basis for the collusion theory so they knew they were chasing ghosts. There only way out was to find something dirty to hang on Trump. Trump is a Billionaire and a Loudmouth without a filter, two of the reasons I voted for him, so I’m sure there is some dirt somewhere that they can hang on him, but that wasn’t the purpose of this investigation.
Seventeen out of twenty-two lawyers on Mueller’s team are registered democrats, those who aren’t democrats have no known political affiliation, they were motivated to hang Trump, very motivated, but they came up empty.
Mueller’s team is turning over every rock looking for that dirt. With an unlimited budget and no real oversight, they feel that they can did and dig until they get something. If this were a game of poker President Trump is holding a pair of Jacks and Mueller is holding a pair of deuces.
President Trump knows he has a strong hand and only a stronger hand can beat him. He knows there wasn’t any collusion so he’s confident that Mueller has little to nothing in his hand. Mueller has the Deep State and the resistance behind him, but they’re not a viable backup for him. When things get ugly they’ll only start pointing fingers and fail to remember anything. Mueller is the face of the investigation, he knows he has a pair of Deuces and he knows that won’t get him anywhere. There’re only two reasons he could want to question President Trump, to clarify a few points that almost certainly they don’t need very much, or to set a perjury trap.
The process of getting a subpoena for the President of the US is a process that will require some substance to justify, substance that I doubt Mueller has. I doubt he’ll go there with a weak hand.
This process started with the media holding Mueller over their shoulders as a shining knight to go slay the dragon, President Trump was the dragon. Now it’s a year later, the shine has dulled on his armor, his shield is dented and tarnished and he lost all his weapons fighting shadows. President Trump is still standing and Rudi Giuliani is fighting the knight and starting to win.
Mueller is looking for an honorable way to fold his hand and slink out of town with as little of the stink on him as possible, the Deep State and the resistance are soon to take a beating when the Inspector General’s report is released.
The tide has turned, it was everybody against Trump a year ago, but now the shift has Trump on top and the resistance in retreat. Whatever the Deep State and the resistance is, it’s partisan and political, areas not known for honor and integrity. The Inspector General’s report will identify players who followed instructions from players who were trying to keep their hands clean.
President Trump has to keep succeeding in his job as our President, and he and Rudi have to stand tall and keep shouting about the witch hunt, the public is starting to agree. It is a witch hunt and the public are agreeing it’s a witch hunt.
We may not like some of what Senator John McCain may be saying lately, but as a POW who was being tortured he never ratted out another POW or his country. Senator McCain is a sailor who embodies honor and integrity, we will not be seeing any of his qualities as the rats from the Deep State and the resistance are questioned, they will rat out every body they can to get a lighter sentence.
