Democrats want you to think the real issue at hand is that Trump might fire someone at the FBI [Video]

But it’s distracting you from the real concern.

Published

Democrats and establishment Republicans in Congress are giving the media stories about how they can preserve Mueller even if Trump fires him.

It is obvious some people wish to preserve Mueller as a campaign issue into 2018. At this point, posing as Robert Mueller’s defenders and treating any attempt to reign in his witch hunt as a “Constitutional crisis” serves two purposes. The first is obvious: to criminalize the Trump presidency in order to obstruct him as much as possible and hurt Republicans in elections. The second though is more important at this point: to divert attention away from the REAL Constitutional crisis that gave birth to the Mueller investigation.

Right now, it looks like the FBI inserted a spy into the Trump campaign.

But Democrats and #NeverTrump Republicans want you to think the real issue is that Trump might fire someone at the FBI!

NBC News reports, “Lawmakers weigh Plan B to protect Mueller’s work.

As the probe closes in on the White House, much of the public debate has centered on the fate of Mueller and whether Trump might fire the former FBI director, who’s now led the probe for nearly a year.

But warnings now from Capitol Hill focus on the possibility of Trump replacing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the special counsel probe. If Trump takes that step and installs a loyalist in the job, Mueller’s scope could be narrowed, his resources squeezed, and Rosenstein’s successor could withhold the report from Congress and the public.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who helped draft a bipartisan bill to protect Mueller that passed the Judiciary Committee late last month, confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that talks are underway for a “Plan B” after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to bring the original legislation for a floor vote.

The discussions “involve assuring the evidence is preserved and reports are done if the special counsel is fired or other political interference is undertaken by the president,” Blumenthal told NBC News.

Notably, Blumenthal added, some GOP senators are participating in the effort.

“There’s strong interest on the Republican side in avoiding a constitutional crisis,” said Blumenthal, who’s also drafting a measure to protect Rosenstein but declined to provide details.

Some Judiciary Committee members believe the fresh effort would be politically harder for McConnell to reject since it focuses primarily on transparency and not the president’s personnel decisions — and it could apply to all future special counsels.

In the House, where the Republican majority has refused to consider any legislation to protect the Mueller probe, Democrats are debating taking matters into their own hands if Trump acts against Mueller. Some options Democrats are considering include keeping vigil at Mueller’s office.

“We have to do everything we can to make it politically unsustainable for the president to destroy the investigation and accountability and the rule of law,” Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, told constituents in his New York district last week.

Biden’s Age Has Democrats Drawing Up Special “Pledge” for Geriatric Joe

As of this writing, no such clause has been floated for fellow democratic candidate Bernie Sanders who is, in fact, older than Biden.

Joe Biden

With Joe Biden “not” running for President in 2020, (wink, wink), the democrats have been able to spend their time fawning over a whole gamut of Oval Office wannabes. From the bizarre antics of dirt-eating Beto O’Rourke, to the racially tone deaf lies of Kamala Harris, the democratic field for our next presidential contest is rife with unintentional humor. And that’s before Joe Biden has even officially announced his presidency.  Make no mistake about it; he’s running, but the political PR firm pulling the elderly Biden’s strings have likely warned the former VP about announcing too early. Biden’s “slip of the tongue” was a cheeky way to gauge interest in his potential bid, and belied the longtime DC dweller’s true intentions. The democrats, however, have had a bit of a trepidation about a Biden candidacy, often citing his 76 years on this planet as a detriment.  Now, they’re taking their old-Joe ageism to the next level. According to a Thursday New York Times report, Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.” This news comes just days after leaked reports that Biden could be considering Stacey Abrams as a possible running mate, hoping to announce both candidacies at once. Abrams is known for her contentious loss in the 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial race, and for her participation decades ago in a flag-burning protest regarding Confederate symbolism on the Peach State’s flag.

Rosenstein Prepares the Democrats for a Major Let-Down in Mueller Report

Rod’s latest, emphatic characterization of Mueller’s final report has taken the wind out of the democratic sails in a BIG way.

Rod Rosenstein

President Donald Trump has been absolutely emphatic in his denouncement of the Robert Mueller-led “Russiagate” probe. “No collusion!”.  “It’s a hoax!”. We’ve heard these sentiments over and over again, and, as Mueller prepares to conclude year two of his wide-ranging investigation, the President has been spot-on so far.  Mueller’s only successes have come from charging low-level, former Trump acquaintances with crimes unconnected to the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, or the Russian government. We also have learned from expert legal observers that we should be expecting the final report to drop sometime soon, based on a number of personnel changes and DC insiders. Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General will be staying on to provide a “heat shield” for the final report…his words, not ours. Rosenstein also detailed a very dreary reality for the democrats in a new letter, explicitly explaining why they shouldn’t be getting their hopes up for some slam dunk against the sitting President. In the letter, Rosenstein makes it clear he believes the Department of Justice will not – and cannot without violating long-standing Department of Justice policy – include disparaging or incriminating information about anybody who has not been charged with a crime. “Punishing wrongdoers through judicial proceedings is only one part of the Department’s mission,” Rosenstein wrote. “We also have a duty to prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnish people who are not charged with crimes.” According to inside sources, the investigation itself will no longer be seeking indictments, ergo, with the President not being indicted, Robert Mueller would be shirking his prosecutorial creed in releasing any information disparaging Donald Trump. Rosenstein is emphatic on this point: “In fact, disclosing uncharged allegations against American citizens without a law-enforcement need is considered to be a violation of a prosecutor’s trust.” And this isn’t some special,…
