It sure looks like Robert Mueller wants his investigation to continue through the November midterm elections.
Now that he’s exhausted all relevant people and avenues without finding evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia, he’s targeting some very peripheral characters in an effort to prolong it.
Still unable to find evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 Presidential election, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is turning his guns on an insignificant former campaign advisor and a Lebanese-American businessman with ties to the UAE who frequently visited the White House in 2017.
Former Trump Advisor Sam Nunberg, a lawyer, was fired twice by Trump. In 2014, he was accused of writing several racially charged posts on Facebook (which he has denied) and then fired again and sued for $10 million in 2015 for breaching a Trump campaign confidentiality agreement.
Nunberg apparently spoke to Mueller’s investigators last month and has now been subpoenaed to appear in front of a grand jury. Mueller has requested that Nunberg provide records of all electronic communication between him and several other members of Trump’s campaign including Steve Bannon.
Nunberg, appearing on CNN and by phone to other Cable networks on Monday, said he would not comply with the subpoena, saying, “screw that”. By the evening, however, he had reversed course and said, “I’m going to end up cooperating with them.” Many in the media said he appeared to be having a “meltdown” over the course of the day.
His behavior throughout a series of interviews was buffoonish and impulsive and he lacked credibility. He said he believes Mueller “has something on Trump.” But, even though he said he hates Trump, he doesn’t believe Trump colluded with the Russians. Hope Hicks, former White House Communications Director, told Politico that Nunberg is “a highly self-destructive individual who makes routine calls begging for his job back.”
Erin Burnett, while interviewing Nunberg on CNN, said she smelled alcohol on his breath and asked him if he had been drinking. Of course, he denied it. Please see the video below.
Apparently, Mueller and his team are more interested in examining Nunberg’s text, phone and email records with other Trump associates than they are in using him as a witness.
The other new person of interest in Mueller’s investigation is George Nader, a Lebanese-American diplomat and businessman who was allegedly a frequent visitor to the White House in 2017. Mueller is looking for “any possible attempts by United Arab Emirates to gain political influence by funneling money to support Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
Does Mueller truly believe these men have anything of substance to add to his findings? What is he doing? Just when he was thought to be concluding his investigation, he is expanding it. He is determined to find something – anything – with which to charge Trump. Mueller was appointed to search for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 presidential election. Ten months later, he has uncovered Russian efforts to interfere in the election and unrelated financial wrongdoing of former campaign associates. He has not yet found any evidence that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians. This investigation has morphed into what can only be called a witch-hunt.
Just as the DOJ and the FBI became weaponized during the Obama administration, Mueller’s team has become a weapon for the left. It’s no secret that Mueller himself is the only registered Republican on the team and we all know he is NOT a Republican. Their goal is to prolong the investigation through the election season so it will continue to cast a shadow on Republican prospects in November.
This is what one might expect in a corrupt, authoritarian government. Slowly, the left is chipping away at the free republic that America once was. Due to a complicit mainstream media, many Americans not only tolerate our shift away from democracy, but they encourage it.
It is hoped that when Michael Horowitz, the DOJ’s Inspector General comes out with his report in the next month, it’s findings might trigger an investigation into the real collusion that took place during the 2016 presidential election, that between Hillary Clinton and the Russians.
It’s time for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to step in and “remind” Mueller of exactly what he was tasked with. Let’s stop the farce and wrap this up.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
