Trump's Long Winter of Investigation

Six months into a special counsel's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, White House aides and others in President Trump's close orbit are increasingly divided in their assessments of the expanding probe and how worried administration officials and campaign aides should be about their potential legal peril, according to numerous people familiar with the debate. Mueller's investigators are also still actively mapping out all the attempts by Russian nationals and people with ties to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin's government to connect with and possibly infiltrate the Trump campaign. So far, at least nine people in Trump's orbit had contact with Russians during the campaign or the transition to the White House, according to Mueller's charging documents and interviews and records obtained by the Washington Post.

Comments

"If Hillary Clinton were to be elected, it would create an unprecedented and protracted constitutional crisis. Haven't we just been through a lot with the Clintons, right?"

"Hillary is likely to be under investigation for many years, probably concluding in a criminal trial."

"She'll be under investigation for years. She'll be with trials. Our country, we have to get back to work."

"There's virtually no doubt that FBI Director Comey and the great, great special agents of the FBI will be able to collect more than enough evidence to garner indictments against Hillary Clinton and her inner circle, despite her efforts to disparage them and to discredit them. If she were to win this election, it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis. In that situation, we could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and ultimately a criminal trial."

"Her current scandals and controversies will continue throughout her presidency and we will make it honestly, look, it's gonna be virtually impossible for her to govern. Now, the Republicans have talked very tough and the Democrats. It's gonna be just another mess for another four years, folks. A mess. We've got to get back to work, right? I mean, we have to get back to work."

"First thing you should do is get rid of Clinton. Hillary Clinton will be under investigation for a long, long time for her many crimes against our nation, our people, our democracy, likely concluding in a criminal trial."

You should have been more careful what you wished for Humpy Trumpy. God has a way of making your dreams come true. Just not the way you thought they would.

Karma.

Trump and His Entire Family's Long Life of Investigation

POSTED BY AVIGDORE

Fixed.

He should have pretended to be President of the United States of America instead of a strongman running some 3rd world ****hole.

He didn't though.

And good for him, right? I like it when people get what they ask for.
