Mueller should investigate leakers on his team

June 15, 2017

The big story overnight is that special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice in firing former FBI Director James Comey. This despite the fact that several top intelligence officials and even Comey himself have admitted under oath that Trump did nothing to obstruct the investigation of the “Russian collusion” story for which no evidence has ever been unearthed, and that as President, Trump has the legal authority to fire the FBI Director at any time for any reason, including that he didn’t like how an investigation is going. So why would Mueller be wasting taxpayer money investigating Trump for something he hasn’t been accused of and that he has the power to do anyway? Shouldn’t Mueller be busy explaining why he shouldn’t step down himself for his obvious conflicts of interest due to his newly-exposed deep personal ties to his own top witness, Comey?

Well, there could be a simple explanation. The story came from the Washington Post, which cited unnamed sources close to the investigation. If that’s true, then the sources are leaking information about a confidential federal investigation, which is a federal crime, and Mueller should immediately help root them out so that they can be arrested and prosecuted if he wants his investigation to maintain even a shred of credibility. If it’s not true, then it will join an ever-growing list of anti-Trump WaPo stories based on anonymous sources that made big headlines but later turned out to be a giant pile of used diapers. So maybe the prudent thing to do would be to wait until the claim is verified by a more reputable source than WaPo, like Mueller himself or the National Enquirer, or possibly a Magic 8-Ball.

    Mike, I love you and Sarah, your amazing, intelligent daughter. I really have a suggestion for Trump to win the non Fox-watching Americans, who truly don't have the time or attention span to understand the TRUTH. We are in debt. Americans respond to simple sound bites. David Ramsey encourages Americans to pull in their belts and become DEBT FREE. As you no doubt know, the participants yell "WE'RE DEBT FREEEEEEE!!!!" once they accomplish this challenging task. What about a slew of commercials when appropriate, showing couples briefly interviewed by Dave and how they feel now that they are debt free. Then Dave can turn to Americans in general, saying we have a 20 trillion dollar debt. What can we do to be debt free? (List the things, including a brief explanation as to how the Dems lied with ObamaCare, giving too many a freebee that we can't afford. Show some quick facts...then have Dave say if we do these things, we can eventually shout "AMERICA IS DEBT FREEEEE!" Advertisers can create the abbreviated version. But those four words need to be pounded into Americans. We need to think of it as a game that we win with certain sacrifices. Make it a patriotic TV promotion. Most of us don't know what is truth and what is not, but Ramsey has a credibility in the country. Just a thought..... LOVE YOU! -Marian Jacoby

    I have felt for years that the New York Times and Washington Post are being paid off for running so many made up stories and receiving help from the Democrats. The democrats are a bunch of thieves taking money from the lobbyists and other groups. They are certainly a group of spoiled brats feeding on the taxpayers. The government has stolen our social security and was so to replace it ha ha. Now we have some Republicans joining the mess. They have us by the throat.
