Robert Mueller’s obstruction of justice probe is bigger than we realized
Washington Post/ MSN ^ | May 30. 2018 | Aaron Blake

President Trump's fixation on “no collusion” has long belied this reality of the Russia investigation: The obstruction of justice half of the probe appears significantly more troublesome for him personally.

It's also likely to be much bigger than we realized.

That's the big, reinforcing takeaway from the New York Times's scoop Tuesday night that Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to un-recuse himself in the Russia probe. It's merely the latest clear example of Trump trying to control or otherwise sway the people who could be in charge of his own fate. And it underlines the fact that he had very few boundaries in doing so.

I know that was probably a typo, but perhaps Freudian as well...

The author was referring to Trump when he typed these words. He could just as easily have been writing about Mueller.

I'm sure he is as oblivious to the irony as he is to the hypocrisy.

More ridiculous crap from the Mueller fabrication mill.

The President asking the AG to do his job and take charge of an out of control subordinate abusing his power is not “obstruction”, it’s the Chief Executive doing what he’s supposed to do.

Gowdy said that Trump is not a target of Muellers investigation, so how does this square?

Ratface Mueller Investigating a coverup of a nonexistent “crime” when the only crimes were perpetrated by the Clintons and their scum allies in the CIA and FBI. Witness the stinking, surpassing attempts of the Deep State worldwide to retain control in the face of opposition: Tommy Robinson jailed without trial in the UK with a shut down of press coverage when he dared cover the trial of some filthy pedophiles who enslaved British Christian girls for sex at the age of 12! Witness the EU installed “president” of Italy overriding the majority of Italian voters to install a PM they didn’t vote for and thereby maintain the mass flow of illegal immigration across the Mediterranean. Witness the idiot Bush family contriving against Trump when they would have had nothing in politics but for the Reagan conservatives.

Mueller is playing word games. Not a target if the collusion investigation.

The rate of disinformation production by the MSM is proportional to the proximity to release of the OIG report and inversely proportional to provable facts.
