Deep State shill Robert Mueller has loaded up his legal staff with Clinton donors and is now expanding his investigation into the lame Trump-Russian conspiracy to include all of Trump’s business dealings.
To me, this is so obviously the fatal blow to the Trump presidency that I can’t see a way forward for Trump to remain in office much longer. Trump is basically an honest guy, but he’s probably cut corners here and there, as well as partnered with some shady characters now and then.
First things first. Let’s get a feel for the general direction that things are moving.
Bloomberg News is reporting that the Russia investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller is zeroing in on President Donald Trump’s business transactions.
The report quoted an anonymous source as saying that Trump’s financial ties to Russia are the focus: “FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008.” The Washington Post has not independently confirmed Bloomberg’s report.
Somebody is basically daring Trump to try to fire Mueller.
Just a day before the Bloomberg report, in an interview with the New York Times, Trump said this is precisely the thing that for him would cross a “red line” with Mueller. The Times reporters repeatedly asked what would constitute Mueller going too far, and eventually Trump agreed that probing his business and his family’s financial dealings would be a “violation.”
It has previously been reported that the Russia investigation has focused on the business dealings of Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, Jared Kushner, but this appears to be the first indication that Trump’s own finances are under scrutiny.
In the Times interview, Trump didn’t quite say he would try to fire Mueller for such a thing, but he sure hinted at it. Here’s the transcript:
“MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT: Last thing, if Mueller was looking at your finances and your family finances, unrelated to Russia – is that a red line?
“MAGGIE HABERMAN: Would that be a breach of what his actual charge is?
“TRUMP: I would say yeah. I would say yes. By the way, I would say, I don’t – I don’t – I mean, it’s possible there’s a condo or something, so, you know, I sell a lot of condo units, and somebody from Russia buys a condo, who knows? I don’t make money from Russia. In fact, I put out a letter saying that I don’t make – from one of the most highly respected law firms, accounting firms. I don’t have buildings in Russia. They said I own buildings in Russia. I don’t. They said I made money from Russia. I don’t. It’s not my thing. I don’t, I don’t do that. Over the years, I’ve looked at maybe doing a deal in Russia, but I never did one. Other than I held the Miss Universe pageant there eight, nine years.
“SCHMIDT: But if he was outside that lane, would that mean he’d have to go?
“HABERMAN: Would you consider –
“TRUMP: No, I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia. So I think if he wants to go, my finances are extremely good, my company is an unbelievably successful company. And actually, when I do my filings, peoples say, “Man.” People have no idea how successful this is. It’s a great company. But I don’t even think about the company anymore.
There’s a saying that been around a while that claims that everyone commits three felonies a day, without knowing it. I don’t know about that, but I do know that when the financial laws are as complicated as they are in America, everyone is subject to a “gotcha” from the criminal justice system.
Moving the investigation into deals going back more than a decade also irked Mr. Trump’s staunchest supporters, though they remain convinced that there was never collusion with Russia and that the special counsel is part of an open conspiracy to remove the president.
The investigation reportedly now includes Mr. Trump’s involvement with Russians in a development in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood, a Russian oligarch’s purchase of a Trump mansion in Florida in 2008 and the 2013 Moscow staging of the Trump-owned Miss Universe pageant.
“There’s reason to be concerned,” said Tim Selaty Sr., the founder of Citizens for Trump and Tea Party Community, a 170,000-member social media network.
“The fact that they are now considering dipping into the last 12 years of what President Trump is doing — based off of what? What is the reason to go in that direction?” he said. “It’s not going to be good for him, of course.”
The numerous investigations into Russian efforts to influence the election and accusations of Trump campaign collusion include probes by Congress, the FBI and the Justice Department special counsel.
The inquiries, which in the case of the FBI has been ongoing for at least a year, gained momentum in recent weeks with the revelation that Donald Trump Jr. met in June 2016 at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer who offered dirt on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
But the investigation into Mr. Trump’s business deals caused more alarm among Trump loyalists.
Mr. Selaty said he still believed Mr. Trump was an honest businessman. But he worried that the investigation had become a search for anything to discredit Mr. Trump, potentially eroding support and fueling efforts by Democrats and news media to force the president out of office.
“We want our president to be honest, but if there are things in his past that are unsavory, we won’t be happy,” said Mr. Selaty. “I’m also doing this to hold Trump accountable and hold his feet to the fire now that he’s been elected.”
Ken Crow, a conservative activist and editor of CrowsNestPolitics.org, said nobody becomes a multibillionaire in business without some “shady deals” along the way.
“I am nervous. I supported this guy lock, stock and barrel. I loved him dearly, and now I’m scared,” he said. “I think the Democrats are going to succeed, and the Republicans aren’t helping him any. It’s almost like they are pouring gasoline on the fire.”
Republican Party strategist Ford O’Connell said the worry at this stage was “vast overreaction.”
“There’s always going to be people who are nervous,” he said. “The best way Trump can overcome these fears is putting some wins on the board” with his legislative agenda on tax cuts and repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Americans are witnessing history. Rather than the hard coup that took out JFK, the Deep State this go round set things up for a soft coup. There’s no way that the alt-right should ever abandon Trump and allow the overthrow of a president in this manner.
