The so-called “Resistance” is getting pumped up, thanks to news reports that indicate that Robert Mueller is closing in on Target #1: President Donald Trump.
According to several reports last week, Mueller wants to interview the president as he nears the conclusion of Phase One of his investigation: The question of whether or not Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey.
We’re not so sure why liberal America is so excited, because this is a question that already has an answer: He didn’t.
How do we know this? We know this because as President of the United States, Donald Trump has the right to fire every successive FBI Director if he chooses to do so. No one disputes this hierarchal fact, so we’re not even sure what this investigation is supposed to prove. That he fired Comey for the “wrong reasons?” Well, sorry, but if your top man in law enforcement is spending all of his time engaged in a phony, Democrat-driven witch hunt, we’d say it makes all the sense in the world to send him packing.
The truth is that if this obstruction charge is all Mueller has, then he’s got nothing. And we’re increasingly certain that this IS all he has, aside from some moot indictments targeting several other members of the Trump campaign, none of which have anything to do with the 2016 election or Russian interference. Obstruction has become Mueller’s only handhold, his only excuse to get Trump alone in a room with witnesses and a tape recorder, at which point he can proceed with the only real hope he has left: Perjury.
Yes, this is where Mueller is going. He wants to catch Trump in a lie, no matter how insignificant or tangentially-related the lie may be to the matter at hand. It could have something to do with his business practices in 1978. It could have something to do with his marriage to Melania. It could have something to do with the kind of laundry detergent he used during the campaign. It doesn’t matter. He wants to catch Trump in some sort of lie so he can perpetuate this myth that the President of the United States is GUILTY. And thus, he can retire on his laurels as if he is the last great American patriot.
Trump has said he would like to speak to Mueller under oath and on the record, but this might not be the best course of action. If this were really an investigation about getting to the truth about Russian collusion, then by all means, we would encourage the president to be honest and forthcoming. But that’s not what this is, and we all know it. Trump should avoid Mueller like the plague and let this pathetic investigation wind its way to its pathetic end without his direct help.
