Mueller Smells Blood In Russia Probe – Demands White House Documents In THIRTEEN Areas

Robert Mueller, the man that Trump should fear the most right now, has significantly escalated his probe into whether Trump has colluded with Russia. He has demanded the White House turn over documents about some of Trump’s most controversial actions, showing Mueller is keenly interested in Trump’s extremely unpresidential behavior since taking office.

Mueller wants documents , including his meeting with Russian officials the very same day he fired FBI Director James Comey, and the circumstances surrounding his firing of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Mueller also wants documents about the meeting that Don Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. You know, the one that the junior Trump claimed was to determine whether Hillary Clinton was fit for office (after he and his daddy both it was about Russian adoptions).

He’s also demanded all internal White House communications about people like Manafort, Carter Page, Walid Phares, George Papadopoulos, J.D. Gordon, and others.

Trump is well known for having called the Russia investigation “the biggest witch hunt in political history,” and other such nonsense. In Congressional testimony, his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, claimed executive privilege multiple times to avoid answering uncomfortable questions. He even went all Bill Clinton on them for pressing him, behaving the exact same way Clinton did when he told Congress, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Trump could claim executive privilege for some of this, but he’s already screwed himself over for that by talking about certain meetings in public, and not claiming privilege for people testifying to Congress, like Sessions. Two of his attorneys, Ty Cobb and White House Counsel Don McGahn, about that very thing at a restaurant. McGahn apparently has two documents in a safe that Cobb wants to see, and McGahn isn’t giving them up.

Now is the time for Trump to step up the worrying, or better yet, resign before he lands behind bars. Mueller smells blood in the water.
