The Mueller coup

Robert Mueller's unconstitutional raid on the president's lawyer -- with Democratic Party operatives grabbing privileged communications -- is the last straw.

Mueller should not be fired.

Mueller should be arrested and charged with political espionage.

That won't happen, but I trust that something calmer and more effective will occur.

I hope that the president will empower Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz to raid the offices of Mueller and every one of the two dozen Democratic lawyers he put on the public payroll with absolutely no vetting by Civil Service or Congress.

Furthermore, Horowitz should raid their private law offices and their homes.

Then -- and only then -- fire Mueller and his henchmen for abusing the authority of the special counsel.

What a government we now have. The FBI covered up the real high crimes and misdemeanors by Hillary, Huma Abedin, and the rest while pursuing Fake Crimes concocted by Democratic Party operatives.

Sadly, this unconstitutional spectacle is only the latest attempt by the Democratic Party to invalidate the last election and overthrow the president.

If you vote for any Democrat from senator down to county surveyor this year, you are condoning this un-American activity.

  1. I am consoled by this thought: Mueller has just stepped into President Trump’s trap. When President Trump said “ask my lawyer”, the trap was laid. It is now sprung…and we will see Mueller get his comeuppance.

    1. I believe the left knows they have nothing and so are goading Trump into firing Mueller. The don't want to have to disband the Special Counsel and say that.
      Trump is smarter than they are and usually 5 steps ahead.

    2. Are you consoled by the fact that the raid was ordered and executed by Trump appointee Geoffrey Berman and his Republican filled staff (Berman was referred to Trump by Trump appointee Jeff Sessions and even made a contribution to Trump's campaign), on a reference by (you got it) Trump appointee Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein?
      Just wondering?

    5. I'll write slow and in English Anon so you can understand my point. First, Mueller did not request or authorize the raid on Cohen which means 99.9 percent of you Trumpers and Surbots got your facts wrong (again) and are suffering butthurt for no good reason. Mueller merely passed along information not related to his investigation to a bunch of Trump appointees who ordered (legally) the seizure of Cohen's assets. Even Trump's No. 1 apologist (after Surber), Chris Christie, a former federal prosecutor said there was nothing illegal about the seizure. So once again, you Trumpers are getting all worked up over a false assertion. But please keep it going, my stocks in Preparation H and Depends is soaring thanks to you.

    Not only is your comment very perceptive but, it is also food for thought. I sure wish that Don's keen assessment of this illegal act by Mueller and your comment could somehow find it's way to somebody who has trump's ear. Thanks to you both.

  7. Mr Surber - salient points all (as is your wont) however I must take serious issue with one item: would you please cease & desist referring to the “Democratic” Party. It is the “Democrat” Party & they are anything but democratic! It has morphed into a quasi-fascist party over the years.

    I see all kinds of talking heads make this mistake. Drives me NUTS!!!

    Thank You Sir.

  8. The IG of the Justice Dept. has none of the powers he would need to do ANY of the things you wrote about, and the president cannot give those powers to him. I'd say Mueller's "investigation" is now trolling for an over-reaction by Trump so he can claim obstruction of justice. The legal wedgie Mueller has applied to Trump's undershorts is bound to be uncomfortable. Too bad Trump didn't fire Sessions way back when Sessions recused himself. Sessions has the authority and power to bring Mueller's investigation to a close, but it's too late too little for that. You don't strike when the iron is cold.

    In any event, I would guess the voluntary sit-down Trump said he might have with Mueller (and was allegedly practicing for) is now off the table indefinitely. LOL.

    1. Right. The fence sitters will react the same way they did when Starr went off the reservation in the Clinton situation, and impeachment proceedings were held.

  14. The move by Mueller to set up the referral to the DoJ has the fingerprints all over it of Andrew Weissmann, who is the head of Mueller's investigation team. He's a guy you don't fool with: he's ruthless and unethical.

    I'm betting the objective here is to connect Trump to the porn "actress" by alleging he and his lawyer conspired to pay her off in a criminal act of bank fraud. The charge of criminal conspiracy opens the door to all manner of legal maneuvering by prosecutors, including providing a legal basis for raiding the office of Trump's attorney. Bottom line: I'm guessing Trump is now (or soon will be) the subject of a full-out criminal investigation for the conspiracy of bank fraud. The primary aim of Mueller's gambit may be political rather than criminal, but that won't make a difference in the impact it has on Trump's presidency.

Might as well get fitted for that orange jumpsuit to match his orange spay tan. NY AG is ready for the handoff. No Nixon style pardons. This crook is getting nailed.

  21. Sadly, it seems that, at this point, voting for any Democrat is voting for a traitor. How sad that one political party has decayed into treason. That's not ruling out some Republicans haven't resorted to treason as well. I know that patriotism isn't dead, but our Congress is, to say the least, somewhat personally challenged to do what is right for our country. God preserve our Republic. - Elric

  22. Trump was absolutely berserk tonight - totally out of control, threatening everyone who works for him. What comes next could be all out war in Syria because of the third False Flag gassing of a hospital. Clinton employed diversion when the Monica Lewinsky scandal raised its ugly head, so 4 days of bombing to punish Saddam ensued. People died.

    Trump obviously interacted with Russian oligarchs and mobsters in illegal rent-seeking activities such as money laundering and scamming real estate buyers and his campaign staff assisted interactions with the Russians to help Trump win.

    As for illegal activities on the part of Mueller, that is a opinion by a a non-lawyer. Ken White at Popehat is a talented lawyer and here is what he thinks.

    But Trumpsters will continue to believe Trump's lies. Real conservatives are absolutely flabbergasted by the single-mindedness.

  23. If this all turns out to be "just about sex", regardless of how the prostitute was paid the Democrats are doing to Trump exactly what they were complaining about when Bill Clinton was being pursued by Ken Starr. Bank fraud? Try conspiracy. Try perjury. This will come to nothing, and the Dems will be the ones to suffer. It's like they have borrowed from the Republicans the petard that they were hoist upon, thinking that it will work better this time.
