The Russian Investigation continued to cause a stir and create controversy. In recent days there were issues related to the FBI and now another Dossier had surfaced.
Republicans weren’t impressed by the dossier and didn’t trust the person who wrote it either. Cody Shearer wrote the memo and was known to be close to the Clintons back in the 90s. To them this smelled like bad news, that couldn’t be trusted.
Another person on the radar was Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. He had said that Trump was a threat to the U.S constitution if he became President back in 2016.
Pruitt had now recanted and said he no longer agreed with what he had said.
The anticipation of a Trump and Mueller meeting still lingered. Chris Christie doesn’t believe that Trump should do the interview.
“I don’t think the President of the United States — unless there are credible allegations, which I don’t believe there are — should be sitting across from the Special Counsel. The Presidency is different. I don’t think they should do that,” Christie said.
He made these remarks while speaking to ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“Robert Mueller is not someone to be trifled with,” Christie said. “What I’ve said all along is that in an investigation like this, there’s … nothing you can do to make it shorter. There are lots of things you can do to make it longer.”
Preet Bharara who is now a CNN senior legal analyst responded to Christie’s statement.
He tweeted “Reminder that @GovChristie is a former U.S. Attorney. If he were in charge of such an investigation, there is no universe in which he would not seek a Trump interview.”
“I believe that Donald Trump in the White House will be more abusive to the Constitution (than then-President Barack Obama), and that’s saying a lot,” Pruitt said in February 2016.
Since making that statement Pruitt made a 180 degree turn.
He had said that Trump would take “unapologetic steps to use executive power to confront Congress in a way that is truly unconstitutional.”
Such a drastic change won’t go unnoticed and would only left any sensible person to wonder what caused such a change of heart.
Even now many politicians and others wanted Trump impeached for what they considered unconstitutional actions.
Yet the proof was necessary for such an act and Trump still had his Republican colleagues in his corner, well the majority.
If Trump agreed to the meeting with Mueller it could seal the deal for him either way. It could either prove him innocent of any collusion or find him guilty of perjury.
