Mueller Preparing To Release What The President Fears Most To Congress, Trump In Full On Panic Mode

Published

Following the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller might testify before Congress, President Donald Trump is having a public meltdown:

President Trump reversed himself on Sunday and said that the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, should not testify before Congress, setting up a potentially explosive confrontation with Democrats over presidential authority and the separation of powers. The president argued on Twitter that Mr. Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — which found no conspiracy between Moscow and Mr. Trump’s campaign but did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice — was conclusive and that Congress and the American people did not need to hear from Mr. Mueller. “Bob Mueller should not testify,” he said. “No redos for the Dems!”

On Friday, Mr. Trump had said it was up to Attorney General William P. Barr whether Mr. Mueller testified. The president’s about-face now puts new pressure on Mr. Barr, who must decide whether to accede to Mr. Trump’s call. Last week, Mr. Barr said he had no objection to Mr. Mueller testifying. The conflict over Mr. Mueller escalates Mr. Trump’s fight with Democrats just as his re-election campaign is taking shape. It comes on top of numerous refusals by the administration to turn over records to Congress, including a request for Mr. Trump’s tax returns. Mr. Trump has also balked at testimony from his former White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II.

It is crystal clear to see what is happening here. As usual, President Trump is unable to keep his story straight. Previously, he had claimed that the Special Counsel should in fact testify before Congress, presumably because he thought he would never do it, or he would be unable to reveal any more information than what is already publicly available through the redacted report. However, it now seems that he has realized that is not the case, and he now faces a very real risk of Mueller proving his guilt once and for all in front of Congress, leaving Trump’s presidency totally and utterly screwed. So, he feels he has no choice but to launch this ridiculous last ditch effort to somehow dissuade him from testifying.

It will not make any actual difference, of course. The Congressional investigative teams are determined to get to the bottom of this and they will uncover the full truth. As a result, it is now only a matter of time before Trump gets kicked out of the Oval Office over this.
