The special prosecutor has given Trump TV (FOX and Breitbart) some of their best talking points…..some of the Trump-ites in Congress are thumping their chests like sex crazed primates in calling for Mueller to be fired and the FBI to be shut down….all that is nothing new just the tone has gotten louder now.
But in case you have lost your train of thought about this situation maybe I can help your score card…..
On May 17, President Donald Trump’s close ally Newt Gingrich tweeted that former FBI Director Robert Mueller was a “superb choice” to lead the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
But now, as Mueller’s investigation closes in on Trump’s inner circle, the Fox News commentator and former House speaker is singing a decidedly different tune. The special counsel, Gingrich said bluntly last week, is “corrupt.”
His comments echo a growing chorus of conservative voices in and out of government who are increasingly critical of Mueller personally and the Russia probe more broadly. Some are even saying Mueller should be fired, while others have called for a new special counsel to investigate Mueller himself. For the moment, Mueller seems safe: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the only Trump administration official who can fire Mueller, said Wednesday that there was no good reason to remove him or question his ability to do the job.
After you have read this then you are up to date….at least for today and in Trump’s DC that may not be the same tomorrow. The Silly Season will just get longer.
