In the wake of the Post report, when Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein delivered an unanticipated press release stating not to trust media reports from “anonymous officials” all doubt was essentially confirmed. There is no ‘there’ there; and President Trump was not/is not under investigation. Just another failed media attempt by The Washington Post to undermine the administration, with a blend of partisanship designed to generate an ideological self-fulfilling prophecy.
Toward that end, and to put a final nail in that manufactured narrative coffin, ABC news correspondent Pierre Thomas reported today that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is NOT investigating President Trump:
WASHINGTON - Special counsel Robert Mueller hasn’t decided whether to investigate President Trump as part of the Russia probe, according to a report on Sunday.Yes, that means the prior Washington Post report was entirely false; which makes that one of the numerous times CNN, The New York Times, or the Washington Post has run a report that was entirely false. They know it, it’s not false by accident – it is false by design. Just like the previous battle in the intelligence community, there is a battle between Black Hats and White Hats within the U.S. Justice Department’s (FBI and DOJ) unelected career bureaucracy; and the media is on the side of the opposition, the usurping black hat team.
“Now, my sources are telling me he’s begun some preliminary planning,” Pierre Thomas, the ABC News senior justice correspondent, said of Mueller on ABC’s “This Week.” “Plans to talk to some people in the administration. But he’s not yet made that momentous decision to go for a full-scale investigation.”
On Ongoing Russia Investigation
Blog Author's Comments: Since President Trump is not under investigation, is Mueller’s hiring of high level attorneys that were Clinton Foundation members and Democrat donors, to make sure that the Clinton's are protected? Apparently Mueller wants or needs the input from Clinton advisors.
Who thought Mueller was a good idea with his close ties to Comey? And can the Republicans stop using hold over’s from the past administration? Trump should not be Mueller's target, but he’s still only one ambitious corrupt Clinton lawyer away from some sort of set-up, and they are dragging down our President and his work, while many in his administration are sitting on their hands waiting to observe what transpires. I am not holding my breath to see if the Mueller army will prove helpful. A special counsel is not used to coming back in three months to say 'sorry, we did not find any problems.' They are used to gather and provide information to prosecute someone or recommend a penalty. As long as Donald Trump is our president, the constant attacks and quotes from 'anonymous sources' coming from the Washington Post, NY Times, CNN etc. will continue.
I am not convinced of Mueller’s high morals. He should have refused this job based on his conversations and close ties with Comey. Yet, I see and hear so many on our side tell us what a fair and honest person he is, that this is no fishing expedition. I want the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC to have to pay for all these investigations. Once they are over, I want to see a Class Action Lawsuit against every one of them stating malicious intent in their slander and libel against this administration. Let them pay back the money wasted of taxpayer dollars that should be going to useful projects. In the meantime the Democrats and liberals are accomplishing the only item they are able to do, and that is to put up as many roadblocks as they can to attempt to stop Trump from making even more progress with his agenda.
So far, I don't see this impacting Trump's base of voters and those who are loyal and believe in him and what he can do for America. Trump himself has accomplished quite a lot in his short time in office. Too bad the Republican Congress cannot get anything done. I have to wonder who within the administration and Republican Congress can be trusted to put their jobs on the line, to help President Trump achieve some of the items he campaigned on and what the people who voted for him want?
