Palmer Report

Donald Trump’s allies in Congress make desperate panic move as Robert Mueller closes in on him

If you’re looking for a sign of just how thoroughly Special Counsel Robert Mueller is closing in on Donald Trump, you can start with the fact that Mueller spent all day interviewing Trump’s former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Friday. But if you really want confirmation of how close Mueller is getting, take a look at the manner in which Trump’s Republican allies in Congress are suddenly hitting the panic button in pronounced fashion.

Nineteen Republicans in the House and Senate have signed onto legislation which would force Mueller to essentially conduct his Trump-Russia investigation in public (link). This is, of course, a completely insane notion. As prosecutors are building a complex case involving dozens of subjects, witnesses and potential targets, various aspects of the case are kept secret for good reason. In fact Mueller has been keeping certain details hidden from Republicans in Congress so they can’t sabotage him by publicly leaking those details.

This legislation has virtually no chance of succeeding, as it would require 51 votes in the Senate and 218 votes in the House, yet it only appears to have 19 votes between them. Nonetheless, it’s a clear attempt on the part of Trump’s Republican allies – notorious charlatans Bob Goodlatte and Steve King among them – at taking one last desperate shot at preventing Mueller from being able to take down Trump. Moreover, these Republicans are giving away a lot by hitting the panic button at this particular time.

This is the clearest signal yet that Donald Trump’s allies now fear the Trump-Russia investigation is rapidly reaching the point at which there’s no turning back, and Trump’s eventual ouster will be all but guaranteed. It’s not a coincidence that these nineteen Republicans have signed onto this desperate legislation just as Priebus has begun meeting with Robert Mueller in a manner which suggests Priebus has flipped on Trump.
