Special counsel Robert Mueller has put all his cards on the table.
He has revealed the end game for his witch hunt.
And he is counting on these four questions to impeach the President.
Mueller is trying to prove to Trump’s lawyers that his interview with Trump will not be a “perjury trap.”
So his office previewed the four main lines of inquiry Mueller will pursue.
They pertained to Trump’s involvement in a statement responding to the story about Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016, what led up to that meeting, and the circumstances surrounding the firing of James Comey and Michael Flynn.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Special counsel Robert Mueller thus far hashed out four main topics he hopes to ask President Donald Trump about when they meet to discuss the Russian investigation, according to a CNN Wednesday report.
Investigators want to ask Trump about his role crafting a statement abroad Air Force One that miscast Donald Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, the circumstances surrounding that meeting, and the firing of FBI Director James Comey and national security adviser Michael Flynn, the report noted. The findings are based on information from two anonymous sources. But the bulk of the topics surround the ousting of Comey and Flynn.
Trump’s legal team — made up of attorney John Dowd and White House special counsel Ty Cobb — is discussing with Mueller a potential interview with the president potentially to include Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ involvement in Comey’s firing as well as t he President’s knowledge of Flynn’s phone calls with the Russian ambassador.”
Notably absent from this list is any questions about collusion with Russia.
That angle has been dropped entirely.
Mueller is asking about these four topics because his goal is to build a case that Trump obstructed justice.
That is the silver bullet Mueller and his allies in the establishment believe will finally rid them of Donald Trump.
But it is well known why Trump fired Comey.
Comey told the President in private three times that he was not under criminal investigation.
But in his March 20th testimony before Congress, he left that issue open.
The Daily Caller also reports:
“The Wall Street Journal reports suggest Comey was ousted because he would not publicly state there were no links between the Trump administration and Russia. There was growing frustration among Trump’s associates that the former FBI director would not tamp down questions about the president’s alleged connection to Russia.
He refused to “say those three little words: ‘There’s no ties,’” a source told WSJ on May 9, 2017, about Trump’s decision to fire Comey without any forewarning. He was appointed in 2013 and had not yet served six years of what should have been a 10-year term. Media outlets spent months thereafter speculating Comey was ousted because he refused to go easy on Flynn at Trump’s request.
Trump was upset about what he viewed as the former director’s willingness to hog the media spotlight, a White House source also said and questioned whether Comey could be independent while keeping such a high profile. Another White House aide described the former FBI director as a show horse.”
Likewise, Flynn’s calls with the Russian ambassador were perfectly normal and legal.
And for whatever the media wants to say about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, every participant has testified that it was about Russian adoptions.
In addition, crafting a press statement – even if it is misleading – is not a crime.
Mueller is desperate and looking for angle to sink President Trump.
He has settled on obstruction of justice.
