I’d say, yes, but we’ll soon find out for sure.
When Robert Mueller was appointed “Special Counsel to investigate Russian interference with the 2016 Presidential election and related matters” on May 17, 2017, he was charged with “(i) investigating any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation…”
It’s been over eight months now, and it appears there were no “links and/or coordination” between the Russians and the Trump campaign. The democrats and their minions (the biased mainstream media) have been pushing that narrative to keep the investigation going, but I believe they knew there wouldn’t be anything there, and they were just hoping Mueller would be able to come up with something under part (ii) regarding, “any matters that arose or may arise from the investigation.” (Which translates to: “Anything we can dig up, relating to the original investigation or not.)
The democrats already know that THEY were the ones trying to influence the presidential election of 2016 by hook or by crook, with Russian involvement.
Now that Mueller hasn’t been able to come up with “anything” against President Trump, he and the democrats are in a precarious situation: Do they “double down” on their deception and their protection of Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and his administration, or has the time arrived to “cut bait” and throw some people under the bus?
The way I read Robert Mueller’s appointment, it doesn’t limit him investigating matters directly related to President Trump or his campaign only, but to “any matters that arose or may arise from the investigation.”
If Mueller doesn’t want his name and reputation tarnished, he needs to redirect his efforts towards the real matters that have arisen from his investigation, dealing with the behavior of the FBI, Hillary Clinton, The Democrat National Committee, the Obama administration, and even President Obama, himself.
I wouldn’t hold my breath though.
I predict that things are going to get a whole lot uglier. You see, these people have gotten the impression that they can get away with anything, as long as the mainstream media runs interference for them.
I guess we’ll just have to see about that.
