"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts."

"They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t... ....care how many lives the ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!"

Tweets Trump this morning.

Also in the Trump Twitter feed this morning: "The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are obviously very good. We are the envy of the world. But anytime I even think about making changes, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA goes crazy, always seeking to make us look as bad as possible! Very dishonest!"

Mueller has come up with nothing, just like Starr and Walsh. Typical DC bullshit.

Sebastian said...

Don't know about the Muellerites shouting. Don't know about the WH running "smoothly." Other than that, Trump is right.

rhhardin said...

The workings of deep state law are less reliable than tweets.

JPS said...

Mueller isn’t conflicted at all.

He was brought in to do damage control for the institution he loyally served and ran.

rhhardin said...

Does a gag order apply to tweets. It may be under the gag order character limit.

rehajm said...

Mueller was acting US attorney in Boston in 1986-87. According to multiple sources, Mueller himself wrote letters to the Parole Board demanding that the innocent men not be released, despite the overwhelming evidence of their innocence.

Geez, Mr. President, what do you really think? Don't be bashful, now.

Trump's not a military guy, but after watching Patton, he sure me reminds of him. Always on the attack, never retreat.

(BTW, cue the bone spurs crowd)

Tommy Duncan said...

The question is now "what the hell are they investigating and why?"

mccullough said...

Mueller is another DC failure who the DC people promote. While Wall Street melted the economy his FBI was hot on the trail of steroids in baseball.

M Jordan said...

Trump has not had one day of peace since he won the election. True, he brings on some of it, but nothing he has said or done deserves the unrelenting attempt to destroy him. Fortunately for him, people like me are strengthened in their support of him by this onslaught. I can’t tell you the satisfaction I got reading of Michael Avenatti’s arrest last night. May the God of Esther continue to use the gallows built by him, Acosta, Flake, Schiff, et al for themselves.

AllenS said...

I agree with M Jordan.

Ralph L said...

The leaks from the WH have certainly decreased since Rinse Pubis left, but the claims of chaos continue.

Dave Begley said...

Agree with M. Jordan and AllenS.

I'm waiting for that report.

AllenS said...

Rinse Pubis. I got a good laugh out of that!

James Pawlak said...


When (If?) that group of Democrat-Supporting attorneys finishes its "investigation" that operation must be subject to a FORENSIC audit. As the FBI has demonstrated its gross bias and membership in "The Resistance", that investigation should be assigned to the Department Of
The Treasury as its agents have a well established record in executing such investigations.

Otto said...

Trump has clearly set the paridigm for future presidents - twitter. Another nail in the coffin of newspaper journalism.
Like Ann he does the framing. In Ann's case she chooses the subject and we all follow . She leads and sets the tone.
In Trumps case he chooses the subject, not the NYT, and the whole world follows. He leads and sets the tone.

roesch/voltaire said...

Trump is projecting again the chaos in him.

Given the avalanche of leaks in DC, particularly when they reflect poorly on Republicans, if there was anything of substance regarding the original referral to Muesli, would’we have known about it by now?

Trump - Go after Hillary.

Do it.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

It's illegal for all the donors and cronies of the Clinton Crime Family to lose their criminal money chain.

Therefore - Mueller.

Ray - SoCal said...

JPS - great comment!

Mueller has been very successful on protecting the deep state.

And deepstate members can say “I can’t answer that, since Mueller has an active investigation”.

Leland said...

Agree with Dave Begley, AllenS, M. Jordan, and Sebastian.

Mike Sylwester said...

Rod Rosenstein offered the Special Counselor position to Robert Mueller -- and Mueller accepted the offer -- because both men knew that Mueller was the one person in the entire world who was most motivated and able to whitewash the FBI in this situation.

Mueller's top priorities have been:

1) Whitewash the FBI

2) Whitewash Mueller's BFF "Crazy Comey the Leaker"

3) Prosecute someone on process crimes in order to show the public that the Special Counsel's investigation has been worthwhile.

Mike Sylwester said...

The public will never ever be informed about how the RussiaGate hoax began and developed.

The public never will learn who in DOJ/FBI decided that

* the dossier was reasonable grounds to begin this investigation

* George Papadopoulos and Carter Page should be investigated as being Russian spies

* what the investigators learned about Trump's campaign by means of investigating Papadopoulos and Page

Robert "The FBI Whitewasher" Mueller will cover all that up forever.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

"The New York Times reported in 2015 that "shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, [former President Bill] Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock." In total, $145 million went to the Clinton Foundation from interests linked to Uranium One, which was acquired by the Russian government nuclear agency Rosatum."

#Where is the Mueller investigation?

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

Anyone who attends the Clinton Area Tour - supports corruption and excuses sexual abuse of women.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

It's like the John Doe investigations in Wisconsin. If they end it without taking down the intended target, it would make Democrats look bad. Can you imagine the Democrats or DNC media having to admit this was all a waste of time? That. can't. happen.

So it goes on and on and on.

I expect it to fizzle away down the collective media memory hole the day after Trump leaves office.

tim in vermont said...

Mueller and Comey were proteges of Eric "the scandal goalie" Holder per the Washington Post.

Starr collected the evidence proving that Bill Clinton was a forcible rapist.

tcrosse said...

The whole Russian Collusion thing was ginned up because nobody had the balls to tell Hillary that She and She Alone blew the election through H>er stupid obstinacy. Piss off Trump and you get angry tweets. Piss off Hillary and you get dead.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

CNN currently has a fake news article with the headline Text messages show Roger Stone discussing WikiLeaks plans days before hack

If you read the actual article, what you find is that the text messages were from days before the wikileaks document dump, but well after the hack of Podesta's emails.

FIDO said...

I read that in Ken Starr's new book (which the press has seemed to absolutely avoid talking about) that Hillary Clinton, when under subpoena, said 'I don't know' and 'I don't remember' more than Christine Blasey Ford (or over 100 times in three hours...so just barely beating CBF)

He almost cited her for contempt but who wanted to be the guy who sent the First Lady to jail?


Granted, these days, the FBI would do it to Trump's wife and kids in a heartbeat if they could get away with it.

Mike said...

So weird that "conflicts of interest" was an oft-screamed battle cry of the nevertrumpers and Media (which are in Venn diagram style are actually a nearly perfect circle, something rare in statistics), but rarely have been applied to either Mueller or Rosenstein, and then only by Mollie Hemingway or other rare birds (conservative journalists/commenters). Wonder why this is so?

And now Trump is correct that he has the first non-conflicted supervisor for Mueller in Whitaker, and this inability to continue the whitewash from inside the DOJ spells the end for the Deep State: DOJ Division. This has the Democrats actively freaking out. Look at Schumer and Schiff, pissing their pants about "interference." But of course that's "pre-news" or whatever* Althouse called it: things that have not yet happened. In fact they've been screaming foul for a week and still, no interference from Matt. Hmmmm. Then why exactly are they still screaming?

*For an intellectual look at this phenomenon google up "pseudo-events" and for details look at "Boorstin" for more.

Andrew said...

@ M Jordan,
"May the God of Esther continue to use the gallows built by him, Acosta, Flake, Schiff, et al for themselves."

I have thought about the Book of Esther many times since the election. I'm hoping it comes to pass on a large scale for all of the "Russia collusion" accusers and conspirators.

I don't mean to over-spiritualize Trump, but "I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you" often comes true for him.

Certainly No Reasonable Prosecutor™ would want to.

traditionalguy said...

Whitaker cometh. He is ready to prosecute the Coup D'etat cabal in the CIA, DOJ and FBI. All of the evidence is ready for Disclosure. Start up the Dragnet Theme music.

Transcript of yesterday's Daily Caller interview something. My favorite: Says but for his campaigning Republicans would have lost 10 Senate seats. The election actually included 9 Republican seats.

Bruce Hayden said...

I am the suspicious type, so wonder about the timing here. I wonder if there is a race going on between Trump and the Democrats. On their side, somewhat by cheating, but still the margin was big enough that they deserved the win in the House. So, come January, Adam Shifftless et al are going to crank up their investigations of all things Trump. They need a nice handoff from the Mueller investigation of all the dirt that they got from the FBI illegally surveiling Trump, his campaign, the transition, and early Administration. On the Trump side, Sessions is out, and Whitaker probably acting AG, skipping over Rosenstein. Whitaker is not conflicted on Mueller, the Russians, the associated investigations, etc (and very clearly won’t be, despite the screaming, like stuck pigs, by the Dems), so can oversee Rosenstein overseeing Mueller. Rosenstein is going to be under immense pressure to recuse, resign, or force Mueller to shutdown (helped, no doubt by essentially admitting that he had suggested, so matter how jokingly, that he wear a wire the next time he met with Trump, in order to force him out). And, yes, that lawsuit trying to kick Whitaker out was, almost assuredly, instigated to protect both Rosenstein and Mueller. At best, it can slow things down a bit, and that is what the Dems so desperately need - to delay the shutdown of the Mueller investigation until the next Congress in January, when they can pass their dirt to the House Democrats. I think that you can see that both sides understand this dynamic by how quickly they have moved since last Tuesday.

tim in vermont said...

"There was no evidence that Whitaker knew company salespeople were making false promises to inventors, court receiver Jonathan Perlman said in an interview.

“I have no reason to believe that he knew of any of the wrongdoing,” Perlman sai"d.

Howard only reads headlines from partisan secondary sources, apparently.

He was more than a figurehead, he was a spokesperson! You couldn't make this stuff up. WaPo can be counted on to print and exaggerate in the headlines any Democrat opposition research.

Ralph L said...

He almost cited her for contempt but who wanted to be the guy who sent the First Lady to jail?

IIRC, years ago, someone from his staff (Brett K?) said Starr knew he didn't have enough for a DC OJ jury.

Bruce Hayden said...

“Rosenstein is going to be under immense pressure to recuse, resign, or force Mueller to shutdown...”

My vote is for the last of the three. My reading of Rosenstein is that he is the consummate inside player. I don’t think that he likes operating in the limelight. He should, of course, have recused himself long ago, but could get away with not doing so, because Sessions was recused. So recusing himself now would be embarrassing. This is the top job that he is very likely ever going to have. He just doesn’t have the presence to go further. And, I think that he likes having that much power. So, I don’t think he really wants to resign. Which, I think, means forcing Mueller to shutdown. He will, of course, try to run out the clock, but I don’t see that working. I think that the Dems understand that, and, hence their delaying tactics. We shall see.

JAORE said...

Veterans Today =/= solid source.
Closer to solid waste.

But nice touch on the golf count.. doesn't match up to the actual meaning of the "no peace" comment. But, hey, go with what you got.

Jupiter said...

Robert Mueller is an incompetent hack, an amoral fixer, and a brutal bully. There is nothing to investigate, he *knows* there is nothing to investigate, but he gladly accepted the task of investigating it, and now he is attempting to gin up something to prosecute by ruining the lives of innocent men and their families with ridiculous "process" crimes. He is an American Lavrenti Beria.

Howard’s link is interesting, from a point of view of why the Democrats are freaking out about Whitaker, and that is because he “ran a conservative watchdog group called the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust [(FACT)]. The group lodged numerous ethics complaints and calls for investigations, targeting Hillary Clinton and Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, as well as some Republicans” which shared funding sources with “Judicial Watch, Project Veritas, the Claremont Institute, the Federalist Society and the David Horowitz Freedom Center”. Nice how the WaPo hides the real story almost at the bottom of their article.

Big Mike said...

He's right, you know, up and down the line. Of course it only makes Mueller's people and the press every angrier. Not to mention the Dumbocrats.

readering said...

Also from DC interview: POTUS said it would be one thing if Reps won a big House majority of 25, but if Reps were only going to get a small majority (like 3), then he would just as soon deal with small Dem majority. Current vote totals have Dem majority of 27, likely climbing to 30 when all races called.

tcrosse said...

Current vote totals have Dem majority of 27, likely climbing to 30 when all races called.

Still not enough to override a veto.

readering said...

And of course in his free-association manner of answering question POTUS basically admits he replaced Sessions with Whitaker to deal with Mueller.

GatorNavy said...

This is all you need to know about Mueller and his lack of integrity. He is a prime example of what DC is, bought and paid for whores.
