So now The New York Times tell us that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice.
This should come as no surprise. Back in May, Jan Helfeld explained how Trump got played by the Democrats and the Deep State.
Trump is way in over his head. He is probably the greatest street hustler ever but the D.C. game is a different game. It is going to be tough to turn things around but it is possible
The first thing he needs to do
is hire attorney Alan Dershowitz. Dershowitz has stated many times on various talk shows that Trump has not obstructed justice.
As Lew Rockwell has said:
I Can’t Stand DershowitzTrump needs Dershowitz to protect him from the legal attacks. No one can do it better,
Neither could Burt Blumert. But Burt also noted that if he were ever in serious legal trouble, he’d want Dershowitz for his lawyer. See this, for example.
But there is more Trump should do.
Roger Stone tweets:
Roger is close but not quite there.Mueller will indict @realDonaldTrump despite no case. POTUS should order DOJ to indict Rice,Jarrett and Obama on NSA spying.#checkmate— Roger Stone (@RogerJStoneJr) June 15, 2017
At this point, Trump can't fire Mueller. But here is what he can do. Get Attorney General Sessions to name a Special Counsel to investigate Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett. The Special Counsel should be a bulldog that is in Trump's camp. A special prosecutor, as Trump is learning, can go anywhere---that would be fun when it is Rice and Jarrett in the crossfires. That should cause Democrats to think twice about playing the Special Counsel game.
But it shouldn't stop there, Trump should have Sessions name a bulldog special counsel to investigate James Comey. He is an admitted leaker. How many other leaks has he made, especially when he was Director of the FBI?
He admitted under testimony that he plotted the leak about his notes on Trump to force a special counsel, a special counsel who turns out is his buddy. This sounds to me like it could be an attempt to obstruct the office of the President. Perhaps an attempt at a Deep State coup. If Trump is going to be investigated, Trump should investigate the Deep State, an investigation of Coney gets him there,
What gets interesting is that if during this investigation of a potential Deep State coup it becomes clear there was communication back and forth between Mueller and Comey, Mueller would have to remove himself from being Special Counsel of his investigation until the Deep State Special Counsel clears him (hee, hee).
Finally, Trump should hire me as an outside public relations consultant. This country would really rock.
