After Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in the “Russian Collusion” affair for no good reason, it fell to Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to name a special counsel. Rosenstein wrote a memo dated 5/17/17 to name Robert Mueller, and state the mandate.

Three items were listed.

One was to investigate possible collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. The other two items essentially handed Mueller carte blanche.

He can look anywhere and investigate anyone he wants to – and he has the power to prosecute any crimes he may stumble across in the process of his investigation.

We’re talking about the Deep State here.

The fact that this mandate is so wide open may very mean that Rosenstein simply was assuming that Mueller would take it to mean – Trump has to go. Mueller seems to have interpreted it that way.

Now, Republicans are warning Trump – Let Mueller do his job.

Rosenstein’s original mandate memo

But what if Rosenstein and Mueller have done the Deep State equivalent of the Vulcan Mild Meld, and Mueller understands exactly what he is expected to do. That is, save the status quo, and the Washington way of life so that the Establishment will be safely back in control before long.

If that’s not what Rosenstein intended, then why the open-ended mandate?

A larger question is why Republicans are joining Democrats like Adam Schiff and piling on? Schiff hates Trump, is a left-winger, operates not on logic but on a burning desire to return his party to power, and generally is willing to say anything to undermine Trump.

Republicans, who have seen trump turn the Obama morass into a booming economy, have no such excuse. As Trump, obviously sick and tired of being dogged by Mueller, was tweeting about Mueller and calling the investigation a “WITCH HUNT” (in all caps), members of his own party were telling him to back off.

Soon-to-be-retired Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, who has become the top Republican trump hater, reacted to the Trump tweets on CNN’s State of the Union:

“I don’t know what the designs are on Mueller, but it seems to be building toward that [firing Mueller], and I just hope it doesn’t go there, because it can’t. We can’t in Congress accept that. So I would expect to see considerable pushback in the next couple of days urgent the President not to go there.”

Trey Gowdy reacted to a statement from Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, urging Mueller to “bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey.” Gowdy went on FOX News Sunday to say:

“I think the President’s attorney, frankly, does him a disservice when he frames the investigation that way. If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it.”

Meanwhile, Ashlee Strong, a spokeswoman for Speaker Paul Ryan said:

“As the Speaker has always said, Mr. Mueller and his team should be able to do their job.”

Flake is practically a clone of Adam Schiff – but Gowdy and Ryan should know better.

The problem is that outside the idea of getting Trump impeached, removed, thrown in prison, or all of the above, we really don’t know what “Mueller’s job” is supposed to be.

We appear to have moved past the idea of Russian Collusion.

If Mueller has something on trump along those lines – he hasn’t bothered to leak it – and to this point, the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN have gotten leak after leak. Mueller often seems to get his word on the street when the headline favor Trump, and that usually changes the morning headlines in big-city dailies and created panels on CNN.

If collusion is not going to get Trump for Mueller, what about Obstruction of Justice?

Perhaps the “cover-up” will be worse than the “crime.” If you’re following carefully, you’ll ask “what crime?” at this point. We don’t know. As in the Scooter Libby case, there doesn’t seem to be an original crime committed by the Trump campaign.

Then, what is Mueller’s job if he can’t get Trump for a crime, or for covering up a crime he didn’t commit?

It would appear to be going far into the past to find some crime buried within Trump’s vast business dealings.

That’s what he did with Richard Gates and Paul Manafort, and, as Andrew McCarthy writes, these indictments seem to violate DOJ policy. If the idea is to get Trump removed, then anything will do.

If there is some “Whitewater” in Trump’s past, Mueller is determined to find it – as he did with Manafort. Note that in Whitewater, the Democrats rallied around the Clintons — and that Republican are not and likely will not really around Trump when Mueller find something.

Mueller’s job intersects with what some Republicans want. Trump removed.

The sad part about this is that the nation’s economy is humming, and Trump is likely headed toward a reelection victory against an exceptionally weak slate of Democrats. Mueller’s job appears to be to stop that from ever happening. When Republicans tell Trump to “let Mueller do his job,” they are essentially telling him to sit quietly and allow Mueller to take him out.

That isn’t the Democrat way or the Clinton way — but it is apparently the Republican way.
