Delving Deeper into the Trump Strategy

Donald Trump had been trying to end the Mueller investigation since the day it began.

When AG Barr declared there was no collusion and no obstruction, they thought that would finally be the end of it. The Mueller Report was the definitive response. They celebrated and called for apologies from those that disagreed with them.

But then, people read the Mueller Report.

It was not as definitive as Trump and Barr wanted.

The Congress wanted to talk to witnesses.

But Trump wanted the investigation to end. He repeated over and over that there was no collusion and no obstruction. Didn't the people hear what his new Attorney General said? This was supposed to be over.

Then, he started attacking Mueller once again. He started talking about the "witch hunt" and saying that they investigated for two years and that was enough.

After reading the Mueller report, Congress decided they would subpoena Don McGahn and Robert Mueller as the first witnesses. Trump exploded!

He would not obey any subpoenas from the Congress! After all, they were very partisan. He said he would take it to the Supreme Court. He ordered his staff and former staff to ignore any subpoenas they got from Congress. He said he was going to sue Rep. Elijah Cummings.

The calls for impeachment arose in the House and even Senator Elizabeth Warren said it was time to impeach. It was about principle, not politics, she said.

But on closer inspection, it appears that Donald Trump wants to put everything into the Courts. He believes if the Democrats were to impeach him, the Republicans would defend him in the Senate. He thinks that would only make him stronger.

However, if the Democrats take everything to Court, they can delay action up to and beyond the next election. That is his strategy. Delay and delay. He believes that is the secret to him winning the next election.

1. In the meantime he will be able to claim his innocence without anything to dispute it.

 

Today his team is coming out that Mueller has looked at his taxes and found nothing wrong because there was nothing in the report about it. tRump stated as he was getting on the helicopter that he believed Mueller looked at his taxes, he wouldn't see why not. Then his lawyers told CNN later, that they "believed" Mueller looked at tRump's taxes.

Now you know they would know whether or not Mueller looked into tRump's finances. They are putting these rumors out that can't be disproved that Mueller "did" so it can be spread around that since there's nothing in the report about tRump's finances, there must not be anything illegal in his finances. Those are some sneaky bastards...

3. You are right.

He is really focusing on his tax returns today?

But I doubt that Mueller has told him that he looked at his tax forms? He is just making shit up.

I wish Congress could get Mueller to testify sooner rather than later.

Yes, they are some sneaky bastards...

5. Yep, both he and his lawyers stated that Mueller looked at his taxes...

 

at least they "thought" he did. Now you know damn well they would know if Mueller looked or not.


Spreading stuff that can't be proven...

2. It also is the story of his life.

In about 4,000 law suits over forty years, Trump has survived by using the courts for the very same purposes. Delay, obfuscate, punish.......through the courts. He welcomes the fight because it also allows him to claim victimization.

When and where will he EVER face accountability?
