Robert Mueller just went there.
He’s expanded his investigation once again.
And this time Trump will be furious when he finds out that Mueller crossed a red line.
Mueller is now probing alleged foreign donations to Trump’s inauguration committee.
This is the latest example of Mueller engaging in a wide ranging witch hunt that has strayed far beyond his original mandate of election interference.
Now the special counsel is digging into events that took place months after the election.
ABC News reports:
“Those interviewed included longtime Trump friend and confidant Thomas Barrack, who oversaw the fundraising effort, as well as individuals familiar with the massive inaugural fund, according to sources with direct knowledge.
Barrack, a real estate investor, has long been described as a Trump “whisperer” whose close friendship with the president landed him a prime appearance during the GOP convention the night Trump accepted his party’s nomination.
The billionaire runs a fund with hundreds of millions in real estate and private equity holdings in the Middle East. Barrack oversaw the largest inaugural fundraising effort in U.S. history, bringing in $107 million – more than double what President Barack Obama raised for his first swearing-in festivities.
According to a source who has sat with the Mueller team for interviews in recent weeks, the special counsel is examining donors who have either business or personal connections in Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. Several donors with those ties contributed large sums to the non-profit fundraising entity – gifts that topped out at $1 million dollars, according to public records.”
This is out of control.
Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar have nothing to do with Russian election interference or collusion.
Mueller is casting his nets far and wide because his investigation has been a bust.
And the Trump administration is starting to get fed up.
Vice President Mike Pence spoke for millions of Americans when he said it’s time for Mueller to wrap things up.
Do you agree?
