Trump launches all-out assault on Mueller probe

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


"president Trump has launched an all-out assault on the federal investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, reflecting an intensifying obsession with the probe within the West Wing.

As reports emerged this week that special counsel Robert Mueller has widened his investigation to include the president’s business transactions, Trump issued a public warning that such inquiries were a “violation” of the scope of the probe.

In a bombshell interview with The New York Times published Wednesday night, he stopped short of saying that he would fire Mueller if he crossed that line “because I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

But he threatened to expose “many other conflicts” that he believes make Mueller’s position at the head of the investigation unethical — a claim that comes on the heels of a round of Sunday show appearances by the president’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, suggesting that Mueller’s appointment to the post was illegitimate.
Multiple outlets have also reported that Trump’s legal team is digging into Mueller’s team, looking for alleged conflicts of interest — and discussing the limits of the president’s authority to issue pardons.

And on Thursday, the spokesman for Trump’s outside legal team, Mark Corallo, reportedly resigned — in part because of his discomfort with the president’s strategy of attacking Mueller’s integrity.

Trump’s lawyers have denied that the White House is investigating Mueller’s team, but have not denied that they will object if they feel Mueller is straying outside of his mandate.

The feud, so far, appears to be decidedly one-sided. Although a few tidbits have begun to trickle out about the parameters of the investigation, the leaks do not immediately appear to have originated from Mueller’s team..."

These are the actions of a guilty man.
