The Deep State’s war against Donald Trump is reaching a fever pitch.
Trump’s never been in more danger.
Now they’ve launched their end game which they believe will end in impeachment.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is their ace in the hole.
His probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia has expanded into areas far afield from its initial scope.
Mueller has filled his staff with partisan Democrats – including lawyers who contributed the maximum donations possible to Hillary Clinton’s campaign – to investigate Trump and his team.
The Special Counsel is also close friends with James Comey and the two have been described as “brothers in arms.”
The deck looks stacked against Trump.
Now the investigation will drag on long enough to play a role in the midterm elections.
“A former senior Obama-era Justice Department official said the complexity of the case in front of Mueller could take considerable time because of international financial and intelligence information that won’t be easy to track down. But the source, who has worked with Mueller, said the former FBI director is well known for pushing staff to work overtime.
“If he has one flaw or virtue it’s impatience. He moves people very hard and moves them very quickly,” the former DOJ official said. “The team will be sleep-deprived and sweating bullets as he drives them to wrap it up.”
Any public disclosures on the Russia probe will be prime fodder for both Democrats and Republicans heading into the midterms. “It’s going to be hanging over every single congressional candidate,” said Bradley Moss, a Washington-based national security attorney. “Do you believe the president obstructed justice? Do you believe the president should be impeached?”
If Democrats win back Congress there is a good chance they will go forward with impeachment.
And there is precedence for politically motivated special counsels to damage Republicans in elections.
When George H.W. Bush was running for re-election against Bill Clinton, Iran-Contra Special Counsel Lawrence Walsh indicted former Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger and released a statement that indicated that then-Vice President Bush had been in the loop on the scandal.
The announcement stalled Bush’s momentum in the polls and helped elect Clinton.
Republicans fear a repeat of that scenario.
And some Trump advisors worry Mueller will be more than happy to provide the ammunition even if it is based on no evidence.

The Deep State will not give up.
Their Russia story is nothing more than fake news and a hoax.
But they have parlayed it into a serious investigation that could hand the Democrats control of Congress.
And that could lead to impeachment of Trump.
