Trump Is NOT HAPPY About A New Special Prosecutor Investigating The Russia Stuff

Source The Justice Department announced Wednesday it will appoint former FBI director Robert Mueller as a special prosecutor, also called a ‘special counsel’ to investigate ties between Trump associates and Russian operatives.

After FBI Director James Comey’s unexpected firing last week, lawmakers renewed calls for a special prosecutor. Multiple Democratic senators have called repeatedly for a special prosecutor to be appointed in the past.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who made the appointment, said in a statement:

“I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter…My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination.”

Oh snap. Comey’s out but effectively, on this investigation, might as well not be. Mueller and Comey are boys. Mueller’s been granted sweeping access to investigate the shit out of any potential Trump/Russia cahoots.

As Deputy AG Rosenstein states, this is not an indictment. This is not saying the Trump camp is guilty. This is simply appointing the right dude to carve through all the bullshit and get to the bottom of it all.

Robert Mueller has been named the man for the job. He was the FBI Director before Comey. His appointment to this role is being praised by both sides. The bureau is pumped. Donnie is not.

(I can’t help it — this is a pathetic tweet by all accounts. “OMG you didn’t ground them but you’re grounding me; I hate you mom and dad!” Grow the fuck up Trump. I don’t care if you are someone who owns 10 MAGA hats or if you’ve been staunchly anti-Trump, you can’t look at these types of tweets and think these are respectable, presidential reactions. The guy’s acting like a little bitch and it’s infuriating.)

The political implications of this appointment simply come down to what the truth is. If Trump’s right and this whole Russian probe thing is a witch hunt, this will be a great thing for him. His #squad will be vindicated. Mueller will find nothing and Democrats — who are praising the appointment — will have no choice but to accept it.

If Trump’s wrong or lying, this will be bad for him. Mueller will find out and Mueller will fuck him (especially after how the Comey thing went down).
