I believe that Robert Mueller has collected enough information to know beyond a doubt that Donald Trump is a criminal, a fraud, and has sold out the interests of our country to a hostile foreign power. Still, he’s bound by Justice Dept. guidelines preventing him from indicting a sitting President. He’s limited to making the best case he can. Presenting a final report to the Attorney General. Assuming William Barr is confirmed, an Attorney General less than assuring that Mueller’s report will ever be made public.
Thus far, Mueller has issued so-called speaking indictments, providing far more public information than required in order to inform the American public. As the investigation winds down, with more indictments and arrests yet to play out. Mueller has to have developed a real contempt for the man occupying the Oval Office. Before the midterm elections, Mueller respectfully held off on public activity according to Justice Dept. norms. But now, given the ongoing attacks on Mueller and his credibility from Donald Trump. If Mueller were just a little bit petty. What would he do?
He’d arrest Donald Trump Jr on February 5th, hours before daddy is supposed to give the State of the Union address. That would be a shot across the bow.
He could commemorate the St. Valentines Day Massacre by arresting several members of the Trump campaign and administration on the same day. He’d also assure a headline that would live on in history. Those to include (assuming the evidence supports it) are Jared Kushner, Eric Trump, Erik Prince, Hope Hicks, John Kelly, Sean Spicer, and Rob Porter
He could issue search warrants to include offices in the White House, subpoena computers and notes of those involved.
And if he were really petty, he’d forget all about the Justice Department guidelines and indict Donald J. Trump a sitting President, charging him with everything he’s guilty of; fraud, money laundering, bribing foreign officials, perjury, Federal Election Campaign violations, and last but not least Treason. Mueller should prove that no one is above the law, not even a sitting President.
Trump should be arrested in the White House and do a perp walk across the White House lawn in full view of the cameras.
If Mueller were petty, he might do all of this. I can only hope!
