It’s a fishing expedition!
That’s how conservatives should view the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which is in the process of trying to ensnare former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort with tactics like a pre-dawn, no-knock raid on his house in Virginia on July 26. While it’s unknown if that raid turned up anything incriminating, what is known is that Manafort was under surveillance by the FBI from at least 2014 — more than three years ago — without being charged with a crime up until now.
Robert Mueller’s mandate is to investigate potential collusion by the Russians in Trump’s 2016 campaign. But has his inquiry so far turned up anything at all about Russians? We’ve only heard about Republican figures so far in this business — about Manafort, former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and maybe Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner. Thus far, this whole business seems like a witch hunt designed to entrap lesser figures around Trump and to get them to “turn” on him and testify about something larger. But what if there is nothing larger?
Has that ever mattered to the Democrats, or are they just trying to obstruct the workings of this administration with fear, uncertainty and doubt until they can get back into power?
