Democrats and their anti-Trump allies are desperately clinging to hope that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress this week will give them the opportunity to impeach President Donald Trump.
Mueller had one trick up his sleeve to impeach Trump, but it’s now more than obvious that his his ace in the hole is a total dud.
And Mueller just suffered the most humiliating defeat of his life.
Mueller’s two-year long investigation began because corrupt officials in the Obama administration created a conspiracy theory that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
After Mueller found no evidence of any collusion, his team of left-wing lawyers were forced to find something else that Democrats could use to begin impeachment.
As his “Plan B,” Mueller then referred Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney, to prosecutors in the Southern District of New York on financial and campaign finance crimes.
After months of threats and squeezing him, Cohen admitted to making hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal in 2016 after they claimed to have had affairs with Trump nearly a decade ago.
This was the moment Democrats thought they won.
Democrats cheered because after Cohen admitted to violating campaign finance laws, they thought Trump would be indicted.
But their “Plan B” crashed and burned and made Mueller look like a total fool.
Last week, a federal judge confirmed federal prosecutors in New York City ended their investigation into Trump campaign finance violations and that no charges will be brought against the president.
Here’s more from The Daily Caller:
The end of the investigation indicates that no additional Trump Organization executives — a group that includes Donald Trump Jr. — will be charged in the investigation, which was led by attorneys in U.S. attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York (SDNY).
CNN reported earlier in July that prosecutors were winding down their investigation and were planning not to charge anyone else in the investigation.
Pauley’s order Wednesday confirmed the reporting.
“The Government now represents that it has concluded the aspects of its investigation that justified the continued sealing of the portions of the Materials relating to Cohen’s campaign finance violations,” said Pauley, adding that “weighty public ramifications” of the activities described in the materials related to the campaign finance investigation warrants public disclosure.
After more than two years of investigating and spending just shy of $40 million from American taxpayers, Mueller and Democrats failed spectacularly in their quest to indict Trump.
Mueller’s probe ended with no charges against Trump.
Now, the SDNY’s case into alleged campaign finance violations ended with no charges against the president.
And when Mueller testifies before Congress on Wednesday, Republicans have already made it clear they have a trick up their sleeve for the former special counsel.
