Robert Mueller thought he was on easy street.
He was running his rigged witch hunt against Donald Trump with no obstacles in sight.
But then everything changed when Mueller got this nasty surprise.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned and President Trump replaced him with chief of staff Matt Whitaker.
Deep State agents and journalists were terrified.
Whitaker blasted Mueller on TV and in print.
He suggested choking off the funding for the investigation as a way to hold Mueller accountable.
Whitaker also authored a CNN op-ed where he declared that Mueller looking into Trump Organization business deals that had nothing to do with the 2016 election was close to a red line that could lead his to his firing.
Whitaker wrote on CNN.com:
I’ve prosecuted several financial crimes at the federal level and I’ve also defended plenty in my private practice. From this unique vantage point, I can understand how a motivated prosecutor, in a broad investigation into the financial affairs of high-profile individuals, can become overzealous toward the targets of such probes — with calamitous results. While no one is above the law, in situations such as this, any seasoned prosecutor must use discretion both judiciously and expertly.
It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel.
If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family — and by extension, to the country.
Many conservatives celebrated this news.
Whitaker’s appointment could push Mueller to wrap his hoax investigation instead of dragging it on in hopes of dragging the investigation into the 2020 election cycle to try and hurt Trump’s re-election chances.
