The Robert Mueller investigation just won’t go away.
And you have no idea how bad it almost got.
That’s because Robert Mueller was about to do something to Trump that would leave you red with rage.
Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff is out with a sequel to his 2017 book and it contains a shocking allegation.
Wolff claims that prosecutors drew up a three-count indictment against Trump for obstruction of justice but Robert Mueller tabled the idea of charging the President.
The Daily Caller reports:
Wolff claims he obtained the documents from “sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.”
If true, it would be the strongest evidence so far that Mueller seriously considered charging Trump with obstruction of justice. Prosecutors ultimately deferred a decision on the obstruction question to Attorney General William Barr, who declined to pursue a case against Trump.
But there’s a major problem with Wolff’s allegation.
“The documents that you have described do not exist,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a rare on-the-record statement.
There is ample reason to doubt Wolff’s account.
In Fire and Fury, he falsely claimed Trump was having an affair with then-U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
That was a bald-faced lie.
As were other anecdotes in his book.
But the Fake News Media treated Wolff like a hero – Hollywood even greenlit a mini-series based on the book – because his book “rang true.”
What that meant was even though Wolff’s work was full of holes, it confirmed the Fake News Media’s worst thoughts about Trump.
However, now that Mueller has denied Wolff’s account that he intended to charge the President, it is unlikely Wolff will get nearly as much attention for his second book – especially after his credibility has been called into question on multiple occasions.
