The investigation into so-called “collusion” between candidate Donald Trump and the Russian government has now gone on for over a year. Some are asking, “What are we actually investigating?” The answer is: no one really knows. Robert Mueller, the head of the special counsel, and his team of registered Democrat prosecutors have been on a fishing expedition looking for collusion and have yet to find one iota of evidence that Trump conspired with a foreign government to win an election. Nonetheless, the “witch hunt,” as President Trump calls it, goes on.
It has recently been reported that Mueller might issue a subpoena in order to get President Trump to testify in front of a grand jury. Little does Mueller know, according to the Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution, the president must be impeached and convicted by Congress before he can be subpoenaed.
Another disturbing fact of this investigation is that the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly told the president weeks ago that he wasn’t the target of the investigation. If Trump is not a target then why would Mueller threaten to subpoena him and why has the special counsel reviewed thousands of the president's personal documents?
It appears that this is all a political ploy or “insurance policy” to bring down or highly damage President Trump politically. Thus Rosenstein's trip to the oval office to tell Trump he is not under investigation was only a delay tactic to buy Mueller more time to entangle the president and his allies in this thing called the Russia investigation. The sad fact of it all is that the longer Robert Mueller is allowed to continue fishing, the more the president will have to take time away from governing and doing the things he was elected to do to defend himself.
From the beginning, I’ve raised questions about the legitimacy of the Mueller probe. There was no identifiable crime to investigate. There was only the potential of a crime. How often do you have law enforcement investigating a hypothetical? Hardly ever. Investigations begin when a crime has occurred such as a bank robbery, stolen car, money laundering, fraud, and the list goes on. The crime occurs and then an investigation is launched to find out who was involved and to what extent they are responsible. This builds a case that can then be used to charge and convict someone. In the instance of the Russia investigation, no crime occurred. Thus we have an investigation into no crime. A historic blunder by our highest law enforcement officials in the country.
On Friday, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III sharply rebuked Mueller’s lawyers in court saying that they didn’t have the authority to charge Trump on charges that are unrelated to the original scope of the investigation. The judge went on to say that, “We don’t want anyone with unfettered power” referring to Mueller and his team.
You might ask yourself, how can this injustice occur under a Republican Justice Department? Well, Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrongly recused himself from all things relating to the Russia investigation. This left swamp rat Rod Rosenstein in charge. He has given Robert Mueller unlimited resources to go on his fishing expedition for a crime to bring down Donald Trump. My recommendation would be that AG Jeff Sessions immediately un-recuse himself and reinsert himself back into this investigation. Sessions must take back control of his Justice Department and reassert his authority over all things regarding his department. It would be one thing if Rosenstein and Mueller were playing the game fairly, but they’re not. These two men and all of their henchmen are out to take down President Trump in an unjust manner, completely without cause. If Jeff Sessions fails to intervene then President Trump must fire Rosenstein and Mueller, the two perpetrators of this injustice. Regardless of who intervenes, someone must, so that this stain on American justice can be cleansed.
