Mueller Time? With Midterms Over, Expect Fireworks

With democrats taking the house, Mueller’s investigation could be front and center in the left’s attempts to impeach the President.

Robert Mueller

The grace period is over, at least according to a number of hopeful political observers on the left side of the aisle.

In an effort to remain “neutral” in the fact of the midterm elections, there has been a self-imposed moratorium within Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of possible Russian interference during the 2016 election.  The idea was to allow the American people to make their midterm choices without the lingering doubt of what could be in the offing for President Trump.

Now that we have moved past these turbulent contests, however, all bets are off.

More dramatic still, a Democratic House would have the ability to impeach Trump — even if it knew for sure that Republicans in the Senate would acquit Trump after a trial there.

That would raise the stakes considerably for whatever recommendation or report Mueller makes to Congress. Most Democrats played down the impeachment idea in the midterm campaign, judging (rightly or wrongly) that it would be more likely to turn out angry Republican voters than supportive Democratic ones.

That calculus could change with presidential elections still two years away. Impeachment would distract Trump from his agenda. It might weaken him to have to spend months or even years defending himself against detailed charges.

And, could Mueller actually impact attempts to derail the Trump presidency?

Mueller’s evidence would be at the center of any impeachment effort. His investigation, cleverly farmed out to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, already got Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen to testify under oath in open court that the president directed him to commit an election law felony. That would be a significant piece of any impeachment effort.

Now, with democrats taking control of the house come January, Mueller’s timeline could be adjusted to make a blitzkrieg impeachment attempt in the New Year.

Even if Mueller doesn’t go straight for the jugular with the radical left immediately, there is little doubt that he’ll be rising on his laurels in the coming days.

New Poll From Virginia Has Bloomberg Tied For Lead With Sanders

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who enjoyed a victory in New Hampshire’s primary and a good showing in Iowa, is tied for the top spot in a Virginia poll with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Virginia is one of the larger states to be holding a primary on Super Tuesday in two weeks. Check out the details from Fox News: Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at 18 percent in the poll, just 4 percentage points behind Sanders and Bloomberg. Their slight edge over the former vice president is within the survey’s sampling error. According to the poll, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers at 11 percent, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 9 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 5 percent, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii at just 1 percent and billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer at less than 1 percent.

So does Bloomberg, the billionaire Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat who announced his presidential bid less than three months ago. Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at…

DOJ Launches Five Probes Into Investigators Involved In Mueller Russia Probe

Published

on

Several of the investigators involved in the Mueller Russia probe, Ukraine investigation, and matters related to Hillary Clinton and her various scandals around the 2016 presidential election are all being investigated by the Department of Justice. As you can imagine, the left is probably very nervous about this, hoping that whatever conclusions are reached do not expose further activities by the “resistance” within the government working against the Trump administration. Check out the details from Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr appointed the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen to review the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Justice Department officials told Fox News that Jensen will work hand-in-hand with Brandon Van Grack — the lead prosecutor on the Flynn case — during his review. Barr last week confirmed that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming from President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others. Barr has tapped U.S. Attorney from the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady to handle that Ukraine information. That review comes after the president was acquitted on charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stemming from the Ukraine controversy. Last year, Barr appointed U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to review the events leading up to the 2016 presidential election and through Trump’s January 20, 2017 inauguration. But, as Fox News first reported, Durham has since expanded his investigation to cover a post-election timeline spanning the spring of 2017 — when Mueller was appointed as special counsel. Another probe looking into the Clinton Foundation is also still underway, along with further looks into the granting of a FISA warrant during the Russia probe and Clinton server document release. These are all shady incidents that desperately need further examination to expose any political corruption…
