Robert Mueller is no friend to President Donald Trump.
But that doesn’t mean that he will be overly helpful to Democrats.
Democrats just realized that after being forced to admit what we always knew about Robert Mueller.
Robert Mueller’s investigation is extremely one-sided.
It is Donald Trump vs. his enemies in a legal battle over the future of the United States government.
If Trump wins, it at least appears as though he will keep control over the federal government.
His polling numbers are much stronger than they were before he defeated Hillary Clinton anyway, and his approval within the Republican Party is at all-time historic highs at this point in his presidency.
But if he loses, all of that could come crashing down.
If Robert Mueller can provide compelling enough evidence that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia it is bad news for Trump supporters.
It doesn’t matter if Trump actually colluded with Russia; it matters if Mueller can convince the public he did.
But regardless of whether that happens or not, one thing is clear, the investigation will not put the controversy involving the 2016 election behind us.
Former Federal Prosecutor Joseph Moreno explained this in an opinion article at The Hill.
Moreno is not someone with partisan ties; he has sided for and against the Trump administration throughout the Russia collusion investigation.
He points out the fact that the conclusion of the investigation will likely make no sides happy in the end.
The anti-Trump left is hoping that Mueller provides some smoking gun proving a massive conspiracy between all facets of the Trump government that brings down Trump and everyone close to him.
Trump supporters are hoping that Mueller provides zero evidence of any wrongdoing from any party.
In reality, Moreno believes that something in the middle will come out, and that it will be unlikely that Trump will be indicted on any front.
Without an indictment, the only front of punishment for Trump will be impeachment, which will be virtually impossible without a Democrat takeover during the upcoming midterm elections.
Any Republican voting to impeach Trump would be committing political suicide.
In order for any Republican, outside of a lame duck situation, to consider voting to impeach Trump it would take a very high level of evidence that he did anything wrong.
And unless Mueller provides some sort of smoking gun, that will be unlikely to happen.
Moreno also explains that the real battle to impeach Trump will take place in the public debate.
Public opinion would need to be turned against Trump before any real talk of impeachment could occur.
That would mean that Republicans would need to turn on President Trump.
Right now that doesn’t seem likely to happen..
Nearly 90 percent of Republicans currently approve of President Trump.
At the 500-day point in the Presidency only one Republican president has held a higher approval rating, with that being George W. Bush in the wake of 9/11.
Impeachment seems less likely by the day, and even Democrats are being forced to realize this.
Do you think Democrats have any chance at impeaching President Trump?
