Earlier this week, President Trump had another tweet tantrum. He suggested that Attorney General Jeff Sessions end the Mueller investigation. If he did so, it would create such an uproar that collusion with Russia would be a hot topic in the 2020 election.
It is now time for the investigation to either come up with something substantial or end. It was formed to determine whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. It was clear from the beginning that this was a political witch hunt. It was staffed almost entirely by partisan Democrats including the infamous Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. They haven’t found a scintilla of evidence except for the Steele dossier, a document created as part of the Clinton campaign.
It has gone far afield to justify its existence. There have been a number of charges, none of them related to Russian collusion. Their showpiece is the Paul Manafort trial. They are desperate for a conviction. Part of their strategy was to prejudice the jury by showing evidence of his lavish lifestyle. Fortunately, the judge wouldn’t allow it.
Rather than talking about shutting it down, President Trump would be better served if he ignored it and let it slowly sink into obscurity.
