As the ongoing investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaign appears to be nearing its conclusion, a growing number of pundits and Democrats are now coming to the realization that the probe will not likely yield the results they had hoped for.
Now, Democrats such as Congressman Adam Schiff, who has enjoyed the media spotlight for the duration of Trump’s presidency almost entirely due to his continued touting of the probe, are increasingly hostile towards the man at its helm, special counsel Robert Mueller.
During a recent interview, Schiff indicated his disapproval of Mueller’s investigation tactics, which he implied weren’t good enough.
While the ongoing investigation has received virtually nonstop media coverage, the press has shied away from the probe in recent months, leaving many pundits speculating that the media and Democrats’ desired results of impeaching President Trump will be dashed.
On the cusp of what will surely be a disappointing report for the radical left from Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s office on alleged “Russian collusion,” Democrats are beginning to turn on Mueller.
“What we are interested in is, does the president have business dealings with Russia such that it compromises the United States?” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on “Meet the Press” Sunday “[I]f the special counsel hasn’t subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, he can’t be doing much of a money laundering investigation.”
The investigation into President Donald J. Trump’s non-existent “collusion” with Russia has been underway for 18 months. Apparently 18 months of work resulting in zero evidence of wrongdoing does not sit well with Schiff, who is certain that Trump has committed crimes. He’s just not sure which crimes. In fact, finding no evidence of wrongdoing, in Schiff’s eyes, actually proves that Mueller is not “doing much of a money laundering investigation.” The House Intelligence Committee member wants Mueller to keep digging into Trump.
But that is not how the justice system is supposed to operate in the United States. Despite whether the radical left thinks Trump should be thrown in jail, in America, we investigate crimes, not people. The scope of the investigation is already broader than what should be acceptable under the law, and still no wrongdoing has been found, other than process crimes stemming from the investigation itself.
This is behavior of totalitarians, not those who care about due process and rule of law. But then, we already knew that Democrats do not care about those things.
