He is burning through tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer cash every month as he tries to find something substantive to attack the Trump presidency with. So far Robert Mueller has come up with nothing beyond a couple of minor plea deals largely unrelated to President Trump (and even those are now crumbling after closer legal scrutiny) and those who backed him are said to be growing angry over how little Mueller has so far delivered.
“The clock is really ticking on Mueller now. His reputation, legacy, whatever you want to call it, it’s all on the line. He’s under enormous pressure. His investigation has been a huge failure.”
So says a longtime Congressional staffer with years of experience surviving the D.C. swamp.
“Mueller’s getting desperate. He’s frustrated. Some say he’s despondent. He’s pulling people off of airport runways in gotcha interview sessions. Kicking in doors, showing up unannounced at workplaces, monitoring private conversations, travel, everything. It’s bizarre, police-state type stuff that’s going on. The public is tired of it all but they don’t even know how bad Mueller’s behavior has been and how it’s getting worse. The entire investigation is out of control. The media has been covering up just how abusive it really is.
“Mueller has always been a rat but now he’s a rat in a corner and that means he’s at his most dangerous. Behind closed doors, Dems are screaming for his head. They pinned so much of 2018 on him and he hasn’t given them sh*t. The polling shows the gap between Republicans and Democrats has been reduced to a near tie which means Trump is overperforming the historical party-in-power trend big time. 2018 was supposed to be a Midterm bloodbath but it isn’t shaping up to be that.
“The Special Counsel appointment should never have been allowed. It was Establishment Republicans who let that happen. They’re paying a price for that too. Trump is doing everything he said he would. That includes going to war with the swamp. No president in our lifetime has ever done that. Even some Democrat voters are learning to appreciate what’s happening. Imagine if Republicans were to actually pick up more seats than they lost? It might happen. Not likely but it might. That would be sweet!”
