Robert Mueller has his sights set on President Trump.
Critics believe he is straying far out of legal bounds to build a case to impeach Trump.
And now he just handed out one subpoena that makes it clear what he has planned for the President.
Mueller subpoenaed former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon to appear before his grand jury.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Former White House senior advisor Steve Bannon has been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to appear before a federal grand jury as part of the Russia investigation.
The New York Times broke the news while Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, is testifying before the House Intelligence Committee.
According to The Times, Bannon was subpoenaed last week after the publication of the White House tell-all, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
The book, written by Michael Wolff, quoted Bannon as saying that Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016 was “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”
“They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV,” Bannon is quoted as saying in the book.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad sh*t, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” he said.”
Mueller could also be eying Bannon’s testimony because it has been reported that he believed firing James Comey was a massive mistake.
The collusion angle is dead so Mueller could be moving to trying to conjure up an obstruction case against the President.
Such a case would be a legal long shot.
The President has the authority to fire any Executive Branch employee he wishes.
But this is a political fight.
And Mueller’s purpose is not to deliver justice, but to hand the swamp grounds to impeach Trump.
