Robert Mueller and his Democrat witch hunt gang have set their sights on President Trump and are now circling the wagon, so to speak. With a presidential interview not long off, it’s being reported in major media outlets that Mueller is specifically looking at an obstruction of justice charge for the president.
By focusing on events since the election, and not during the 2016 presidential campaign, Mueller’s conversations with President Trump’s lawyers have led many to speculate about the direction of the investigation.
That suggests a focus on obstruction of justice while in office, rather than collusion with Russia during the campaign.
Here’s the scoop from Axios:
Axios has learned that special counsel Robert Mueller has focused on events since the election — not during the campaign — in his conversations with President Trump’s lawyers.
The top two topics that Mueller has expressed interest in so far: the firings of FBI director James Comey and national security adviser Michael Flynn.
But both sagas are interwoven with Russia: Trump himself has linked Comey’s firing to Russia, and Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador during the transition.
The Mueller and Trump teams are hoping to work out the specifics of a presidential interview within the next few weeks.
The big question they’re debating is whether it’ll be in person, in writing, or some combination of the two.
After a weekend of increasingly personal and vocal battles with Mueller, the White House extended an awkward olive branch on Sunday night, with White House lawyer Ty Cobb issuing this statement:
“In response to media speculation and related questions being posed to the Administration, the White House yet again confirms that the President is not considering or discussing the firing of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
Kenneth Starr, the special counsel whose investigation led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, told Fox News recently that he did not see any evidence of the president obstructing justice.
The president tweeted multiple times over the weekend about the special counsel investigation, reflecting his deep frustrations over the matter.
Do you think Mueller is biased?
Should President Trump fire him?
