Arrow Decision to appoint special counsel casts doubt on congressional plans for probes

informative article
I hate they mentioned Raul do nothing Labrador (free advertising for his Idaho governor campaign), but
it is what it is




Quote:
The decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate possible coordination between Trump associates and Russian officials threw a sudden wrench into lawmakers’ efforts to hold President Trump accountable for sharing highly classified information with Russian officials and end an investigation into his former national security adviser. Robert Mueller, a former prosecutor who served as FBI director from 2001 to 2013, has agreed to serve in the role, according to Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. Calls for a special counsel had increased since Trump fired former FBI director James B. Comey last week.

I think we can all get behind this. If there's truly nothing there, there's nothing there and we can go home and breathe easier.

If there is, we deserve to know.

Pretty sure libs will never breathe easy. When it comes to Trump they'll always be partisan snowflakes whining in their safe spaces.

They're still in denial they lost the election and continue to make excuses as to why.

Right now the safe space is being occupied by some whiners that can't get over a TV show being cancelled because "muh conservatism is imaginary attacked ".

Trump has brought up the election after the fact more than anyone I've heard of, he even referenced it today in his address to the Coast Guard graduates. Projection much?

And you said on the day after the election you would give Trump a shot.

I guess you lied about that one to! You seem to be good at that, along with your left wing globalist handlers...

This is a criminal investigation and Trump can't fire Special Investigator Robert Mueller who has subpoena powers. Nor can the Congressional majority GOP get rid of Mueller. Everyone on Trumps campaign and White House staff should seriously consider hiring private lawyers because they will undoubtedly be asked to provide written depositions and in-person interviews. Lying to the Special Investigator or his agents is a felony offense. Campaign and White House records will be subpoenaed. Trump cannot tweet his way out of this probe by labeling it political or calling it a "witch hunt" or a "hoax". It has nothing to do with Hillary, or Obama, or the wicked media. Mueller will specifically investigate Trump/Russia collusion. Whatever happens, Godspeed Mr. Mueller.
