Mueller either has something on Trump or he doesn’t. If he has something on Trump it’s either big or it’s small. That’s basically all there is to this story.
Trump knows if he and his campaign were guilty of collusion or anything dirty with Russia, or anyone else, to unlawfully cheat Hillary out of the election. Trump can be certain if it’s possible for Mueller to have something big on him, if Trump didn’t do anything it’s not possible for Mueller to have anything big on Trump. Mueller and his team, even with the corrupt media, can’t create anything big on Trump that will stick if it’s created from nothing.
Trump can’t be certain if Mueller has something small on him, because something small and immaterial can be twisted into some sort of offense. Something small that can be real or imagined can be shined up and held for public consumption as a small crime or misdemeanor worthy of impeachment. Mueller needs an impeachment to enhance his own credibility. Mueller and his team can find a crumb and serve it up to the world as a three curse meal and then blame Trump for subverting justice.
Trump and Giuliani are starting to play hardball with Mueller. Up until recently Mueller has been the David that the left and the democrats depended on to take down Goliath. Now the tide is turning, Trump, with Giuliani’s help is becoming Hercules, ready to accomplish the twelve labors.
Trump is standing before the world saying,” Come and get me! Take your best shot” and Mueller is standing in the background thinking whatever he’s thinking.
I don’t know what he has but I’m certain that it’s not anything of substance, Trump didn’t need help to win, and he wouldn’t have exposed himself so badly to any partner especially a partner like Putin. It’s unlikely in the extreme that Mueller has or can get anything of substance on Trump. If he did, it would have leaked, it always leaks.
Mueller may or may not have something small that they can use to have the effect they want. If they really did want to interview the President and if the questions they leaked to the press are true, then they’re hoping to charge Trump with Obstruction of Justice. The best this would get them is a weak case with little substance and a lot of questionable areas that won’t lead anywhere, even if the democrats do win the House in November and that’s more and more unlikely every day, the Obstruction of Justice charge would be far too weak to have any impact.
Trump and Giuliani are taking the lead, this is their challenge to Mueller, come after us or back down. Mueller is no longer David challenging Goliath with a sling shot and a rock, Mueller is now Barney Fife trying to find a bank robber.
Many on the left and the democrats still believe that the only way Trump cold have won was to cheat, they’re convinced that Hillary should have been President and she was cheated. Some on the left set up the bogus dossier as a tool to cheat Trump out of the election and insure that Hillary won. Many on the left believe the dossier is real and that it should be used to hurt Trump.
I believe that dossier was created to be used to damage the Trump campaign, but it never got any traction because it was too over the top and could not be confirmed. Now it’s an albatross around the democrats and Hillary’s necks causing more damage than good for their cause.
The facts and the timelines are coming out now showing that the investigation / spying / confidential informants, started from these fake documents, the entire Russian Collusion story was a sham, it all started from a false set of facts.
Mueller and his team must know this by now, their investigation had to discover this early. The Russian Collusion myth was a dead end early in the investigation, their continued investigation is not to seek justice but to find something they can hang Trump with.
Mueller has a very weak hand and can’t go forward with Trump and Giuliani promising to fight hard against any push Mueller tries. Knowing that he will have to support his efforts in a court while Trump and Giuliani are publicly fighting hard against him Mueller will have to have something with substance. Mueller is trying to run out the clock, he keeps digging to find the pig that he can apply some lipstick to.
At a point in time they reached the end of the trail where the evidence and the leads brought them. After that they started turning over stones looking for something, anything that would be useful.
It’s time to play hardball, Trump and Giuliani are both experienced and good at it. Mueller and his team are not.
