The Russian lie has been proven so, time to fire all the hilda beast and come what may.
Report: Mueller Teaming Up with Trump Critic NY AG Eric Schneiderman, Who Was On Hillary’s Campaign Leadership Council
It looks like the ever-expanding fishing expedition that is the Special Counsel’s ‘Russia Probe’ just expanded again.
Politico is reporting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is coordinating his investigation with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly working with New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on his investigation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Politico reports that Mueller and the NY AG’s office have communicated regularly in recent weeks and shared evidence, though indictments are not immediately forthcoming. Schneiderman’s team is also said to be investigating transactions related to Trump businesses and may share its findings with Mueller.
Wait, wasn’t this supposed to be about probing whether there was collusion with Russia as to the election?
Now, it’s become, let’s see if we can catch Manafort or someone else doing something and squeeze him to say something against Trump.
Mueller joining his efforts with a state attorney general may be part of a strategy to mitigate against the president’s pardon power. Though the Constitution invests Trump with the power to pardon federal crimes, he cannot grant relief from prosecution for state or local crimes. Working with Schneiderman may ensure a state official is prepared to bring a case against Trump associates in the event the president pardons former business or campaign hands for federal crimes.
But hello, more, conflicts?
Schneiderman is not only a huge critic who has tried to sue Trump over everything from the travel ban to health care reform, he also was on Hillary Clinton’s campaign ‘leadership council.’
When both the Clinton Foundation and the Trump Foundation had filing issues, Schneiderman went after the Trump Foundation and not the Clinton Foundation.
So now the problem is not just Mueller people who donated to Hillary working on the case, but someone who was actively involved in campaign activities for her.
This will add more fuel to the fire of people who believe this is all a political witch hunt.
Most investigations start with a crime, this started with no declared crime but simply the hope to find one even if it has nothing to do with Russia or collusion.
