After Mueller, Trump Critics Worry:
Maybe There’s No Scandal

American Interest, by Jason Willick

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 5/19/2017 4:55:29 AM

Eli Lake is right: The DOJ’s appointment of widely-respected former prosecutor Robert Mueller to lead the special inquiry into the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia is a reprieve for a Trump Administration in crisis—a reprieve that it will almost certainly squander, but a reprieve nonetheless. How do we know? Because the responses from Trump’s most dogged critics on the Russia question betray a kind of anxiety about the Mueller appointment—an anxiety that the no-nonsense law enforcement wise man will lower the temperature in Washington without actually uncovering enough damaging material to bring down the President.

The liberals just want you to believe that Donald Trump is in crisis mode. They also want you to believe that he is disorganized and doesn´t know what he is doing. The liberals just don´t get it. . .

The Liberals should remember Ken Starr where he started in his investigation and where he ended up. Mueller may be led to Hillary´s e-mails, or her uranium deal with Russia or John & Tony Podesta´s big buck deals with Russia. And maybe to Seth Rich´s murder.

He may also be led to Obama officials who unmasked Flynn and others. For instance, Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett. But that will set off BLM and the pink hatters.

President Trump is not tired; he is not overworked, he is not confused, and furthermore he is not anything the media wants you to think. I´m 5 years older than he is and I am still working a full week and walking to work from the train. Only difference, I don´t have the huge load of crap the media puts on his back expecting him to tote it.

Despite the manufactured daily crisis, followed by media created hysteria - we know there´s nothing there.

No scandal. No crime.

What´s going on behind the scenes is a carefully orchestrated attempt to completely hobble President Trump. The haters goal is to render our President powerless. They are ´the swamp.´

It´s safe to assume Hillary Clinton, President Obama, Comey, Reid, along with the rest of the socialists, marxists, fascists, and progressives - are working together to make this happen.

The haters are highly experienced and highly skilled. There is no shortage of ´useful idiots,´ like the reporter who leaked the supposed Comey memo without ever having seen it.

Trump critics should be worried.

Young Willick (a senior at Stanford three short years ago) seems to share the antipathy toward President Trump. His writing highlights the Dems and GOPe’s concern that Mueller will not be able to do enough. That he will only deal with any illegal activity. That other contacts with Russia will somehow go unpunished. “Rats! Foiled again!”

Their desire for a “special counsel” (they like “special prosecutor” better because of the implication that crime(s) will be found) was based on their desire for an independent fishing trip into every corner of President Trump’s and his people’s lives. A witch hunt with no prior evidence of witches.

Do any of these people realize that in today’s world having “contact” with a country with which we are not at war is not a cause to upturn our country’s government? The name of the Russian ambassador keeps coming up, yet we have already heard that Kislyak is a social butterfly who meets with anybody and everybody…

This is about personal hate. Envy. Frustration that he won. We won. All of the more base things in humanity.

If the establishment would stop taking orders from Hillary, it would do everyone a great deal of good. The sinister players behind the scenes don´t care if there´s no crime. They just want to roll the, "Trump was under investigation", for the next midterms. However, the fact there won´t be any good outcome for the establishment will eclipse any benefits they expect to derive from the witch hunt, er investigation. The democrats might even try to fabricate evidence and that too will backfire.

If Trump is being investigated, then the investigation should include all past politicians also including Obama, and Bill and Hillary Clinton along with their staff people like John Podesta and Valerie Jarrett. There are certainly more things to see concerning the Clinton Foundation and Obama´s Iran "Deal" and they should be exposed and prosecuted for abuse of power and other crimes while in office.

Not to worry: should Mueller debunk their accusations, they will make more. (Hat tip to the old Jay Leno Doritos commercials.)

In addition, I have my doubts about the "independence" of Comey friend Mueller.

Anyone remember the uproar from the left during the Starr investigation about how many $millions it was costing the poor tax payers? And how many poor children could be fed with that cash?

I guess that after the left and their messiah doubled the national debt, a few dozen millions is no big deal.

It will be interesting to see how many leftist smoking guns are uncovered by Mueller. Be careful what you wish for, demonrats.

The only crime that seems to have been committed was all the hacking of the Democrats. Has anyone identified the hacker(s)? Until that is done, motive cannot be determined. Neither can collusion if any exists. All the lefties trying to tie Trump to Russia conveniently ignore this. The left wants to convict Trump without any crime. It doesn´t work that way.

If Mueller is impartial, the left should be very concerned. He can take the case in any direction that indicates crime. Not sure if Mueller will be impartial. Isn´t Mueller originally a Bush appointee? No love lost on Trump with regard to the Bushes.

Since it´s been many months now that NO information of any kind that has surfaced that Trump had any actions with the Russians that had any effect on the outcome of the election, it´s safe to say that there ISN´T any said information. What we here is the Dims screaming long and loud that they lost the election even after the "polls" told them that Hillary was a shoo in. They simply can´t get past the idea that American voters did see thing that they did. And with all of the mess that is going on now, has the Dims ever thought that just what might happen in the future? That a lot of American voters can see and what they are doing and why? That the Dims are essentially telling those voters that their vote doesn´t mean a thing? That those same voters just might turn on them even harder that they have done during the past 8 yrs? It´s something that they should consider.

"almost certainly squander" - you are giving in to the literary standards of the swamp, where every editorial column includes a damnation of POTUS, preferably freshly worded. it is just cowardly and weak. do not give in. their standards are low and wrong. Does Camille Paglia have to instruct you in courage? do not include the ritual epithet against potus. leave it out. it is not true, it is cliche, it is weak.

Perhaps the #nevertrump Globalist free trader CON-servative CON-stitutionalists will find a conscience and repent from opposing the President that can - and will - save out indispensable Nation.

For your information, Russia is no longer Communist and is about the sole Christian state in the world.

Russia good, Alger Hiss bad.
Trump good, Obama bad.
America First good, NeverTrumper Globalism bad.
Nationalism good, Swamp bad.

Do not miss the Trump Train for your own good. Our beloved President Trump will give you prosperity, fracking, coal mining, oil pipelines, less regulation, repeal of a Obamacare taxes, 15% business tax, 10% repatriation tax, no death tax, no common core, local education, deport foreign drug and sex traffickers, enforce existing laws and much more, including defeating women with Vagina hats.

I stand with President Trump 100% because he is the great American Hope, and so can you if you love our USA. Consider this your last chance, circle your wagons, and stand athwart this Communist coup d´etat. This salon is a microcosm of the existential struggle taking place presently in our Nation. Stand up and be counted. We won and now is the moment to exert our will and reverse the tragic Obama legacy.

Shunned by his Hollywood friends and activist pals, an increasingly isolated and paranoid Bill Cosby lives in constant fear of someone slipping something into his food or drink. During pre-trial hearings and jury selection in Pittsburgh, ahead of the June 5 start of his sexual assault trial in Philadelphia, the 79-year-old comedian refused to stay in local hotels because of perceived threats. Instead he woke up at 2:30 every morning to fly his private jet to the courthouse from his suburban Philly home. “He and his wife are afraid that if he stayed at a hotel, someone will find a way to

The hunt for the terror network behind the Manchester attack is now focusing on Libya, where bomber Salman Abedi’s father and brother were arrested Thursday and from which Abedi himself had only recently returned. That’s hardly surprising: South Manchester is home to one of the world’s largest Libyan expatriate communities, which in recent years has become a prime recruiting ground for young jihadists. And Libya itself is the base for an ISIS external-operations wing tasked with plotting terrorist attacks in Europe. Indeed, since the fall of Moammar Khadafy, Libya has become a haven for Islamist terrorist groups. Such is the

Trump’s Berating of Comey

I admit to being slack-jawed over the New York Times report that President Trump smeared former FBI director James Comey in a conversation with representatives of Russia’s murderous, anti-American regime. The account, based on notes taken at the meeting and leaked to the Times, has implicitly been confirmed in a near-equally repugnant statement by the White House press secretary. Inexplicably, Trump chose to host Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak the day after he fired Comey in a maze of conflicting explanations (when none, by the way, was required). Naturally, this further fueled the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative.

At around 3 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, President Donald Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip—a five-stop progress through the Middle East, Italy and Belgium. The aircraft touched down at about 10 a.m. local time. Emerging from Air Force One, Trump and First Lady Melania descended the stairs to a wide red carpet. Saudi Arabian King Salman, 81, greeted Trump at the base of the stairs, extending his hand toward the U.S. president. Some pundits questioned whether Salman would shake Trump´s hand or even brave the sweltering heat to walk out onto the runway, citing his older age.

It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

Robert Mueller´s investigation will be incomplete if he does not deal with and resolve the competing narratives about what has transpired. Narrative one is that Donald Trump and/or one or several of his entourage colluded in some manner with the Russians over election 2016. Narrative two is that Democrats and much of the media have not accepted the results of the election and are smearing Trump to drive him from office or seriously wound him to the degree that he will accomplish nothing. Although it is possible there is an element of truth in both narratives, it is more likely that

But by appointing the former FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate the matter, Rosenstein has quieted a crisis that was consuming Trump´s presidency. The storm has been gathering for more than a week. It started when Trump impetuously fired the FBI director, James Comey, claiming at first that he did so on the advice of Rosenstein.

Hillary Clinton says that she "beat" Donald Trump—and Bernie Sanders—in a lengthy feature article by New York Magazine. "I beat both of them," she said, evidently referencing her popular vote win over Trump. While Clinton did defeat Sanders, who is not a Democrat, in the Democratic primary, she did not defeat Trump, who was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States in January. In the story, Clinton discussed her post-election status as a member of the "Resistance" to Trump, but she also reflected on the 2016 campaign, which included a harder-than-expected fight against Sanders for the nomination.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after President Trump took office, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, met privately with his colleagues to discuss the Republican agenda. Repealing the Affordable Care Act was at the top, he said. But replacing it would be really hard. Mr. McConnell was right. The many meetings Republicans held to discuss a Senate health care bill have exposed deep fissures within the party that are almost as large as the differences between Republicans and Democrats. Elements of a bill that passed the House this month have divided Republicans. Mr. McConnell faces an increasingly onerous math problem.
