Trump Lashes Out At Russia Probe Again And Gets Slammed On Twitter

trump russia probe

President Donald Trump bizarrely lashed out at the Russia probe again on Twitter Wednesday morning and promptly got his ass handed to him.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s questions for Trump, which were leaked on Monday, clearly indicate that Mueller is investigating collusion and obstruction of justice. Trump, of course, denies that he committed either crime.

On Wednesday, he did so again by calling the investigation a “hoax” and the obstruction of justice a “trap” before using upcoming negotiations with other countries to presumably suggest that the investigation is getting in the way.

Trump then quoted former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova to claim that Mueller’s questions violate Trump’s Article II powers in the Constitution.

And then he promoted a book by a Fox News contributor.

Trump second tweet was of particular interest.

It should be pointed out that Trump once hired DiGenova to join his legal team. And Trump pardoned convicted perjurer Scooter Libby, who was a client of DiGenova’s wife Victoria Toensing, whom Trump also hired to join his legal team.

Trump eventually rescinded the offers due to conflicts of interest.

It took another former U.S. Attorney, Renato Mariotti, to smack down DiGenova’s claim.

Indeed, firing the very people who are investigating Trump’s ties to Russia would carry serious legal implications.

After all, when former President Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox it led to his downfall. Of course, that was back when Republicans actually gave a damn about the rule of law and American values.

The part of Article II Trump should be most concerned with is Section IV, which reads:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

If Mueller has enough evidence to charge Trump with a crime, Congress must do their duty.
