Reporters in the Thursday White House press briefing asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the situation as it appears to be developing, with Special Witch Hunter Robert Mueller now increasingly ignoring the mandated scope of his investigation.
Mueller is now choosing to pursue anything that falls into the “that could be interesting,” or “maybe there’s something in there I can nail Trump with” paths of investigation, not within his legal authority as originally stated when he was appointed.
The first reporter says, “The President said that if Robert Mueller were to look at his finances or the family finances that would constitute a red line. How is that not a threat to the special counsel?” Sanders replies, “I think that the President, the point he’s trying to make is that the clear purpose of the Russia investigation is to review Russia’s meddling in the election and that that should be the focus of the investigation, nothing beyond.”
“That should not be viewed as a threat, as a warning to what this special counsel should or should not be looking at as it relates to the President’s family’s finances?” she asked again. Huckabee Sanders reiterates, “The President’s making clear that special counsel should not move outside of the scope of the investigation.”
She’s then taken back by another reporter to comments that President Trump had made regarding Mueller when he was asked if he’d consider firing him if he stuck his nose into the Trump personal finances. President Trump said in response, “I can’t answer that question because I don’t think it’s going to happen.” The reporter asks, “Does that mean that firing the special counsel is something that’s on the table?”
Sanders replies, “Although the President has the authority to do so he doesn’t intend to do so.” The hypocrite reporter who would most certainly not want the same treatment, to have teams of investigators pouring over her personal life and finances asks, “If the President’s not concerned about this probe, why does it matter? Why does he care if Robert Mueller looks into his finances?”
Instead of saying that’s private and none of his or the FBI teams’ or the Clinton loyalist attorneys’ business, Sanders uses language stating that President Trump “is frustrated by the continued witch hunt of the Russia investigation” and he wants to get past the distractions and deviations from his work.
A third reporter states that Mueller is investigating the family’s finances, a course of action that President Trump has already stated is crossing a “red line.” He asks “Does that mean he fires him?” She reminds the reporter of the original stated purpose of investigating supposed collusion with the Russian government.
Mueller was not put into that partisan position from which he seeks to supply the forces attempting to oust President Trump with ammunition strictly to investigate the dry hole of Russia collusion. The intent has always been mission creep, or its deliberate rapid expansion beyond what the coup participants already know is a road to nowhere, the Russia collusion farce.
That’s why Mueller’s going so hard and heavy out of the gate. His window of opportunity is small and shrinking. He’s going to have to come up with something the Democrats or establishment can use to justify their continued intrusion into areas that are supposed to be off limits and quickly before opposition mounts. The probe will have to expand beyond Russia into something along the lines of whether President Trump can be considered for sainthood and if not how that shortcoming justifies his removal from office.
Yes, President Trump has correctly and justifiably put Mueller on notice, warning him not to go rogue. And, no, he isn’t bluffing.
