Desperate Trump Signals He May Make A Move Against The Mueller Probe

Trump Mueller

Even though voters gave him a sharp rebuke that cost his party control of the House on Tuesday, President Donald Trump appears to think that nothing has changed in Washington and he can continue to do as he pleases without any repercussions, including threatening the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Wednesday morning, Trump sent out two tweets, the first of which had him claiming “success” in the midterm election:

Then, some three hours later, the president posted what sounds like a warning that he may be on the verge of trying to end the probe being conducted into the 2016 election by Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

But if Trump is indeed operating under the assumption that there won’t be any pushback should he try and scuttle the Mueller probe, he might want to consider a report from Politico which suggests that any move against Mueller would trigger even bigger problems for the president:

“Democrats are even prepping a break-glass scenario in case there’s a Nixon-era Saturday Night Massacre during which Trump fires his current DOJ leadership and tries to shutter the Mueller probe in the process. If that happens, senior Democratic officials say Mueller would likely get an immediate summons to Capitol Hill for nationally televised testimony about his findings.”

Public hearings with Mueller as the star witness would be catastrophic for Trump. And they might all but guarantee that the public would call for the president’s removal from office via impeachment.

Twitter also lit up with reminders for Trump that his life is about to be turned upside down as Congressional investigations by numerous House committees begin just as soon as the new Congress takes office in January:

While it’s certainly possible that Trump will make a move against Mueller, he does so at his own peril.
