It appeared there was a question on many minds regarding President Trump’s approach of the Russian probe.
Some people felt that Trump was using his authority to interfere with the investigation. Other felt that there was nothing amiss and agreed with the President it was a witch hunt.
It was claimed that Trump’s lawyers sought to intercede on his behalf by blocking a subpoena that could possibly come his way.
There was much rumor about this so called subpoena but none was forth coming, at least not presently.
Meanwhile Trump accused the DOJ and Robert Mueller of leaking information to the media.
“There was No Collusion with Russia (except by the Democrats). When will this very expensive Witch Hunt Hoax ever end? So bad for our Country. Is the Special Counsel/Justice Department leaking my lawyers letters to the Fake News Media? Should be looking at Dems corruption instead?” Trump wrote on twitter.
The letter mentioned the President holding the authority to end the inquiry. It mentioned a part of the Constitution that claimed this to be a fact.
It said the President “if he wished, [to] terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon,” the letter read.
The President had been vocal about what he considered a witch hunt, but said he wasn’t looking to fire Mueller or interfere directly.
He however pushed for the DOJ to investigate all matters relating to what he considered an interest in the matter.
Push To Protect
Trump’s lawyers were certainly pulling out all the stops to protect the President. They believed there was no reason for the President to meet with Mueller as he had all the Intel he needed.
“We are reminded of our duty to protect the president and his office,” the lawyers wrote.
Rudy Giuliani who was Trump top lawyer said that Trump was telling the truth.
He claimed that investigators “have a false version of it, we believe, so you’re trapped.” He added “that becomes not just a prosecutable offense, but an impeachable offense.”
“We cannot emphasize enough that regardless of the fact that the executive privilege clearly applies to his senior staff, in the interest of complete transparency, the President has allowed — in fact, has directed — the voluntary production of clearly protected documents,” his lawyers wrote.
It was true that a lot of time had passed the inquiry began, but did that mean that there was nothing to investigate?
The question remained, was there something that Trump was hiding or was it all just a witch hunt with another agenda in mind?
