Robert Mueller Holds Trump’s Future in His Hands

Robert Mueller, the previous Director of the FBI, has been appointed by the Justice Department as special counsel to investigate Trump’s connection to Russia and the possible interference in the 2016 election.  It was Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who appointed Mueller to the position. Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously recused himself from any involvement in the Russia investigation, so it was Rosenstein who made the decision.

Mueller’s appointment comes after excerpts of a memo Comey wrote in February surfaced, in which Comey writes Trump asked him to drop the FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

 At the Jan. 27 dinner, a week after assuming the presidency, Trump requested a loyalty pledge from Comey, people familiar with the dinner say. Comey replied that he could not offer loyalty, but he could pledge his honesty.   This account of the dinner contradicts the one President Trump gave to NBC News Nightly anchor Lester Holt on Thursday. Trump said Comey requested the meeting, asked to be retained in his job, and told him he was not under investigation.

James Clapper, who retired in January as director of national intelligence, said that Comey told him on the night of the dinner the president had invited him — and he was uneasy about it.

 Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey.

The documentation of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia.  Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, demanded that the F.B.I. turn over all “memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings” of discussions between Mr. Trump and Mr. Comey.

Such documents, Mr. Chaffetz wrote, would “raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede” the F.B.I.

Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation. An F.B.I. agent’s contemporaneous notes are widely held up in court as credible evidence of conversations.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey that Mr. Flynn had done nothing wrong.

The White House denied Comey’s account of events in the memo.

“While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn,” the statement said. “The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations. This is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the president and Mr. Comey.”

 

The scariest thought: What if Donald Trump just doesn't know what he's doing?

Trump used his speech to the graduates of the  Coast Guard Academy to play the victim.
Trump claimed during his address to the graduates that he’d been treated poorly by the media, but he did not come close to directly answering the reports about Comey’s memo.
“Look at the way I hated lately, especially by the media,” he said. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse and more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, you can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
Congress has announced that it has scheduled a hearing at which it will take testimony from Comey regarding Trump’s attempts to interfere with Comey’s investigation.  WE will all be listening!

  1. Robert Mueller! You are so hired!
    As of yesterday he saved many Americans from more agonizing daily chaos. He will be rock solid.
    I love the man. Muchly.

    The jury is out on Rod Rosenstein but I think he masterfully did a ‘take one for the reputation’ to CYA. He tRumped the amateur Russian checker players around the WH. Check and mate.

    As for the offspring of an orangutan from his mother’s loins, I am sure that the 5 time draft dodger overcombed any obstacles in delivering the most pompous diploma conferring ceremony remarks in history. How could the Coast Guard grads not admire such raging inspirational 70 yr. old testosterone emanating from the inspirational genius-in-chief?

    As for the Trump witch hunt bullshit tweet this a.m., the most famous witch hunt of any President was a vicious lie about a Muslim guy allegedly ‘borned’ in Kenya.
    And that was THE real (not illegitimate) President Barack Hussein Obama to you, Donnylardass.

    Okay. Nap time. I am exhausted from winning and watching the Donald lose lose lose.
    Gotta’ rest up for the next round.

  2. Many are saying that when he exposes the rigged election, pence will have to go too.
    Some are suggesting Pelosi as interim president, for maybe interim 5 or 6 years.
    After she takes away guns, meat, and country music, she’ll call an election maybe.

  3. And Mr Mueller must be professional, ethical, a leader and truth teller. He must not waste our time and money. He must swiftly charge and prosecute the entire bunch from trump down to his campaign manager. If nancy Pelosi ends up in charge temporary that’s ok. A new election should be expedited and each candidate fully vetted. FEC must do their job and properly vet a candidate. and the ballot system must be corrected. No more tweeties, no more liars, no more interference.
