Acting Attorney general Matt Whitaker says that Robert Muller is just getting ready to wrap up his witch hunt.
If that is true, then not one single person has been charged with collusion. Several people are accused of lying to the FBI and congress, but there is no underlying crime. In other words, they are being charged with covering up a non crime. The same would be true if Mueller tries to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice.
But, if there is no crime, what exactly are you supposedly obstructing? Mueller’s teamm are not saying yes or no to the statement by Whitaker.
Mueller’s team of investigators is examining Russian interference in the 2016 election. The special counsel is also probing for possible collusion by Donald Trump’s campaign and whether or not the president obstructed justice.
The acting attorney general’s comment comes after Roger Stone, a longtime political advisor to President Donald Trump, was arrested in Florida on Friday. Stone faces seven counts, including allegations of witness tampering, obstruction of justice and making false statements to Congress.
Whitaker’s appointment as acting attorney general sparked concern that he might try to stifle Mueller’s investigation. Before joining the Justice Department, Whitaker was critical of the special counsel probe.
In a 2017 op-ed, Whitaker argued that if Mueller examined the Trump family finances “without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.”
Let’s hope this is the end of it. Of course, the Democrats in the House will continue to investigate and Adam Schiff will continue to lie and to leak. The only two things in his life he has ever been successful at.
