With it looking exceedingly less likely that special counsel Robert Mueller will ever uncover any evidence proving President Donald Trump and his presidential campaign colluded with the Russians to affect the outcome of last year’s election, Mueller now appears to be grasping for straws.
Case in point: Several weeks ago, Mueller submitted a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender, Deutsche Bank, to obtain records on the “roughly $300 million Trump owed to the bank for his real estate dealings prior to becoming president,” according to Bloomberg.
These transactions apparently occurred before Trump even announced his candidacy in 2015, which makes me wonder what possible relevance they hold to Mueller’s investigation.
Frankly, from my perspective they seem awfully irrelevant, which only adds credence to my growing theory that Mueller is quickly running out of options.
Consider the fact that of the “indictments and guilty pleas brought in” thus far of former Trump officials such as Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort, “none seem to have much to do with anything other than giving Mueller some scalps with which to festoon his wigwam,” as noted by the RedState contributor who publishes under the name Streiff.
In others words, not a single one of the charges pertain to Russian “collusion” — Mueller’s original mandate. Flynn was charged with making false statements to the FBI, while the charges against Manfort mainly involved actions taken by him long before he joined the president’s team.
Streiff noted something else as well: “We’ve seen an investigation that was supposed to be focused on ‘collusion’ with Russia during the campaign mutate to concern about ‘obstruction.’”
He was right.
Politico reported over the weekend that the top Democrats in Congress investigating Russia’s alleged influence in last year’s allegence believe “that special counsel Robert Mueller is building an obstruction-of-justice case that could implicate President Donald Trump.”
“What we’re beginning to see is the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday in an interview on “Meet the Press.”
But I thought Mueller was interested in uncovering collusion? Where did obstruction come from, and what relevance does it have to his original goal?
Writing for National Review in a post published Saturday, a day after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy posited an eerie theory.
Mueller’s only “end game is the removal of Trump, either by impeachment or by publicly discrediting him and making his re-election politically impossible,” he wrote.
“(W)hat is going on here is politics, not law,” he added. “No sensible person thinks the Trump campaign colluded in Russian espionage. If there were such evidence, I’d be first on line demanding the president’s impeachment and removal.
“Rather, Mueller’s investigation is a semblance of law-enforcement disguising the brute reality that Trump is being punished for winning the election and defying Obama policy.”
And the guy running this witch hunt is Robert Mueller, a man who arguably should have never been tapped to lead this investigation.
In fact, I daresay the investigation itself should have never been launched in the first place.
