Robert Mueller is about to cross a red line that could be a fatal mistake
Robert Mueller is rummaging through every aspect of Donald Trump’s life to scrounge up evidence he can use to recommend impeachment.
But there is one line Trump has warned the special counsel not to cross.
Now Mueller is heading for a showdown as he has done the one thing Trump warned him not to do.
Trump had said digging into his business dealings outside of the election investigation was a red line.
Mueller crossed it.
The New York Times is reporting that Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization for any documents and materials pertaining to Russia.
The New York Times reports:
“The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. It is the first known instance of the special counsel demanding documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president.
The breadth of the subpoena was not clear, nor was it clear why Mr. Mueller issued it instead of simply asking for the documents from the company, an umbrella organization that oversees Mr. Trump’s business ventures. In the subpoena, delivered in recent weeks, Mr. Mueller ordered the Trump Organization to hand over all documents related to Russia and other topics he is investigating, the people said.
The subpoena is the latest indication that the investigation, which Mr. Trump’s lawyers once regularly assured him would be completed by now, will drag on for at least several more months. Word of the subpoena comes as Mr. Mueller appears to be broadening his investigation to examine the role foreign money may have played in funding Mr. Trump’s political activities. In recent weeks, Mr. Mueller’s investigators have questioned witnesses, including an adviser to the United Arab Emirates, about the flow of Emirati money into the United States…
… The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.”
This move clearly indicated Mueller is on a fishing expedition.
He’s running down every angle to try and pin something – anything – on the President.
Trump warned Mueller that this was dangerous territory.
Now Trump supporters want the President to follow through and fire Mueller.
