Let's clear away some misconceptions about the Mueller investigation on Team Trump, and Russia partnering up for a win in the 2016 election.
Special Counsel Mueller isn't going to indict Trump at the conclusion of his controversial investigation. Sorry about that. I know a lot of people believe Mueller has the power to file an indictment and are counting on him doing that.
Here's what they, and you, should know. Mueller doesn't believe he can indict a sitting president. When his investigation is finished he's going to toss the evidence up and it's congress's job to act on it.
The court of public opinion has been swaying against the Russian investigation because of Trump's campaign to discredit it. One survey recently pointed out a list of the top 10 words, or phrases associated with the investigation are;
(Top 3) Collusion, Witch Hunt, and 13 Angry Democrats.
Americans have been brainwashed with those three words since the investigation began. Trump's campaign to discredit the Mueller probe has been steady and unrelenting. He's been doing everything he can to disrupt the probe with false claims and accusations.
In the end Trump is counting on his base believing his version of events, and a cowed congress willing to wipe his dirty ass clean.
Two thoughts on that:
1) The timing of Mueller's report being released is going to be critical. If it's before the midterms it could hurt GOP members running for re-election...or, on the flip side, it could give Trump an advantage with his jellyfish still in charge of congress.
2) If the Democrats retake the House there's a good chance of impeachment proceedings taking place. Especially, if the general population is outraged with Trump getting away with treason.
I have a hunch there's going to be an iron-clad case presented by Mueller, outlining how our president worked with the Russians during the election. There's a good chance they have a "smoking gun" that's going to shoot Trump in the foot! (Hint, Cohen)
Time for me to walk on down the road...
