The Mueller Noose ….

Mueller vs. Trump

Don’t you get the feeling that Mueller and team are tightening the noose on things and this is getting tight for the administration?

We think the W.H. is feeling the heat and knows things are coming to a head. Thus the Guilani hire, and Rudy is out cleaning up some ends. His story on Stormy and payment is a clear attempt to take the issue out of the campaign, and away from finance laws, to a personal one. Personal payments are one thing, breaking finance laws is another. So what sounded like a Rudy mistake was deliberate. He wants to change the conversation.

The hiring of an ex Clinton impeachment lawyer is step two. By all accounts Emmet Flood is an experienced and capable attorney to handle this. He worked for President George W. Bush, too.

So Trump has Flood and Guilani out there now to challenge Mueller. This investigation has gone on the whole presidency, and the job of these two is to begin pressuring for an end. Until now Mueller seems to be in no rush and his team continues to go down new paths to seek information. We hear they have not even ruled out collusion yet, much less all this other stuff.

It looks like to us Mueller will be around for a long time. He hasn’t even begun his trial yet.

Contrast this intense investigation with the kid gloves that Hillary’s emails, bleach bit, smashing phones and negligence with classified documents was handled. It just astonishes us.

Both should have been serious.

Meanwhile

Meanwhile, while the MSM goes all in on Stormy and her details they missed a huge story yesterday.
Did you know that North Korea has agreed to release the three American hostages they have? It was apparently a Trump demand for the conference.
The prisoners (or hostages to some) have been moved from a horrific prison to a hotel pending the summit and release.

Kind of a big story don’t you think? One the MSM should have covered?

Other News

Did you see Facebook hired a former conservative senator (Jon Kyl) to examine bias there? A good move.

A big meeting in China today that deserves coverage. Treasury Secretary Steven Munchin is there to promote Trump’s “America First” trade agenda. For his part, China’s Xi Jinping faces a challenge.  He is trying to advance  China’s economy and avert a trade war with the U.S..
Keep close watch. Mr. Xi has indicated he wants to avoid a damaging trade fight. But anything less than stout resistance against perceived American bullying will be damaging to him.
