Russia Probe Lawyers Think Mueller Could The IDIOT (Original Reporting By Darren Samuelson)


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation has gathered enough steam that some lawyers representing key Donald Trump associates are considering the possibility of a historic first: an indictment against a sitting president.

While many legal experts contend that Mueller lacks the standing to bring criminal charges against Trump, at least two attorneys working with clients swept up in the Russia probe told POLITICO they consider it possible that Mueller could indict the president for obstruction of justice.

Neither attorney claimed to have specific knowledge of Mueller’s plans. Both based their opinions on their understanding of the law; one also cited his interactions with the special counsel’s team, whose interviews have recently examined whether Trump tried to derail the probe into his campaign’s Russia ties.

“If I were a betting man, I’d bet against the president,” said one of the lawyers.

The second attorney, who represents a senior Trump official, speculated that Mueller could try to bring an indictment against Trump even if he expects the move to draw fierce procedural challenges from the president’s lawyers – if only to demonstrate the gravity of his findings.

“It’s entirely possible that Mueller may go that route on the theory that, as an open question, it should be for the courts to decide,” the attorney said. “Even if the indictment is dismissed, it puts maximum pressure on Congress to treat this with the independence and intellectual honesty that it will never, ever get.”

The lawyers’ assessments hardly resolve the public debate about whether a federal prosecutor can indict a sitting president — one that several attorneys involved in the Russia probe said they are closely tracking through online op-eds and Twitter dustups. (“It’s so much fun!” said one.)

Key Take-Aways: Mueller and Team have what they need to Indict on multiple charges. And they believe their case is very strong. I suspect that Indictments will also serve to show the severity of what Mueller and Team believes has occurred.

 

The fact that this is coming from two Attorney’s from someone that is cooperating means that they have first hand knowledge of what Mueller and Team is sitting on. I suspect that this is the Attorney’s representing Priebus, Bannon and McGhan.

Moreover, by filing the Indictments, it puts the onus on The IDIOT and Les Miserables to have the discussion in PUBLIC. Something they will NOT want to do as it keeps #Russiagate in the News.  I also agree that the Indictments will occur in the coming weeks, as Mueller will want to avoid duplicating the missteps of Jim Comey and the 2016 Election.

 

The added benefit is it also forces the hands of This Congress to debate the matter with seriousness. I’d look to the Senate Intelligence Committee to come out in support of this move. I’d also look for Moderate Republicans and skittish Republicans to run away from The IDIOT in droves, effectively, making him Impeachable.

Now – Let’s Go Be Great! Let’s Find Some Good Trouble!
