President Trump is fed up with Robert Mueller.
The special counsel’s witch hunt has dragged on for months with no end in sight.
Now it’s all over for Mueller after Trump made this big announcement.
Trump has decided to take on a more confrontational posture with the special counsel.
The President – while still cooperating with the investigation – attacked Mueller by name on twitter for the first time.
And his latest move could be his most aggressive.
Trump has brought on former U.S. Attorney – and one-time special counsel – Joseph diGenova on his legal team.
DiGenova has been an aggressive critic of Mueller and has asserted that high level officials within the FBI and Justice Department are using the Russia investigation to frame the President.
The Daily Caller reports:
“President Donald Trump has reportedly hired Joe diGenova, former United States attorney for the District of Columbia, to serve on his personal legal team.
According to The New York Times, diGenova will not serve in a “lead” capacity on Trump’s team. When asked about the potential new role by The Daily Caller, he responded simply, “no comment.”
DiGenova has frequently stated that the Russia probe was orchestrated by Obama-era FBI and DOJ officials, a line of reasoning which the president himself pushed over the weekend.”
Some anti-Trump members of the media took Trump’s tweets about the Mueller probe as evidence the President was laying the groundwork to firing the special counsel.
The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!

But the hiring of diGenova does not suggest that is the case.
Instead, it shows Trump learned from Bill Clinton’s battle with Ken Starr and that the best defense is a good offense.
Trump wants aggressive lawyers who will fight the special counsel investigation in the court of public opinion.
Mueller has a guided missile pointed at the Presidency.
His mission is not to find the truth and report the facts.
Mueller is on a crusade to take down Trump by any means necessary – even if it means inventing crimes or rewriting laws on his own.
Trump is right to fight back.
While his supporters would like him to fire Mueller and end this farce of an investigation, setting up a take-no-prisoners legal team is Trump’s next best option.
