At one point, Democrats were confident that the Mueller investigation would be the nail in the coffin of Trump’s presidency. Now, after the investigation has gone in circles with nothing but setbacks to show, that confidence is waning.
The biggest problem that the Mueller investigation is currently facing is the mounting evidence that it was started as nothing more than a political hit job. Former second-in-command in FBI counterintelligence, Peter Strzok was fired from the investigation after it was determined that he was a staunch anti-Trumper and Clinton supporter. However, his firing was too little, too late, and the distrust he has sewn into this investigation is likely more than Mueller will be able to bounce back from.
Now, on December 13th, CNN released what amounts to another fatal blow to the Mueller investigation, this time in the form of a text message between Peter Strzok and his mistress/co-worker Lisa Page. This text message said, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there’s no way he [Donald Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40… ”
In other words, Strzok was likening the Russian investigation to an insurance policy against the Trump Presidency. For an agent of the FBI who is involved with the biggest investigation in modern times to so openly admit his partisanship and political motivations is simply unacceptable. Now, there is much more evidence to support the theory of the FBI colluding against Trump than any evidence ever brought forth to support the theory of Trump colluding with Russia.
Of course, Strozk isn’t the only individual involved in the Mueller investigation to demonstrate outright bias and political motivation, but he is the most high-profile and the one who left the most evidence behind. In short, any trust and reliability that Mueller might have had are quickly disappearing.
It’s enough evidence, actually, for Trump to fire Mueller outright. Not that this would be the most politically wise move at this juncture. Instead, the best move for Trump at this point would be to sit back and let Mueller’s investigation continue to come apart at the seams – which is exactly what he seems to be doing.
It seems clear at this point that the Mueller investigation was compromised from the very beginning. Not only has it failed to turn up any real evidence, it has failed to remain trustworthy enough to believe even if it were able to tie Trump to Russian collusion.
This is a fact that even Democrats seem to be coming to grips with, which is why it seems they have now reverted their focus back to the unproven claims against Trump of sexual misconduct that were brought up during the election. Shortly after Democrat Al Franken was run out of the Senate for the sexual misconduct accusations made against him, Democrats quickly used their moment of moral high-ground to target Trump, with a number of Democratic senators calling for his resignation just days after Franken resigned.
Whether this new approach at taking down Trump will fail as miserably as the Mueller investigation is yet to be seen. What we do know is that if these accusations failed to keep Trump out of office during the election then the chances of them being used to successfully remove him from office now that he is already President are slim to none, especially since these accusations are decades old, unproven, and denied by the President.
Suffice it to say that Dems are growing pretty desperate in their attempts to take down Trump, and the results of their efforts continue to damage their own party more than anything else. There’s little doubt at this juncture that they will continue throwing things at the President in the hope something will stick likely for as long as Trump is in office.
If they were hoping, though, that the Mueller investigation would be what it takes to impeach Trump or force him to resign, the evidence (and lack thereof) that continues to pour out has no doubt left them sorely disappointed.
