Former AG Eric Holder Issues Severe Warning About Trump’s Mueller Smear Attempts

President Donald Trump is the worst kind of coward. Following numerous attempts to quell the investigation into Russian collusion with his campaign, he is now seeking to find any legal grounds to put a stop to the inquiry.

Trump has his lawyers running ragged trying to find ways to limit or in any way undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s efforts. Essentially, they believe they may have a legal leg to stand on because of the president’s ability to pardon people regardless of findings and claims that Mueller has conflicts of interest. President Donald Trump has been allegedly asking aides, lawyers and anyone around him who will listen, whether or not he has the power to pardon his staff, family members and himself depending on the findings of the investigation. Almost certainly, Trump is trying to figure out whether or not he has the capacity to pardon his son, Donald Trump Jr. and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner for their roles in the meeting about “adoption” with unregistered Kremlin operative, Natalia Veselnikskaya.

Trump is allegedly even more unstable as a function of the probe and is stressing about the legal questions he, his family and aides may have to answer, as well as the insight into his finances that may occur. Mueller will have the opportunity to view several years of Donald’s tax returns — and America knows how hard he has worked to keep those pesky things hidden.

Another avenue that President Trump is considering to kibosh or undermine the investigation, is through his appointment of a new director for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to replace James Comey. Trump has butted heads with essentially every American intelligence agency since his inauguration, primarily because of his propensity to demean their capabilities. His nominee for director, Christopher Wray told the Senate Judiciary Committee a few weeks ago that he doesn’t believe the Russia investigation is a “witch hunt” yet various sources are claiming that Trump is absolutely certain Wray would step in and be a shield between him and Mueller.

There is further speculation — as another piece of evidence of his desperation — that Trump is considering firing Mueller and replacing him with what he considers a more favorable option. But based on the tremendous controversy that has generated in discussions, unless Trump wants to see the kinds of protests he faced when the election results first were reported, or at his inauguration, he really ought to bypass that strategy.

Americans on Twitter are already making plans and getting organized, however, in case Trump does go ahead with that course of action. Among these Americans is former Attorney General, Eric Holder, who did not mince words when reflecting on the news above:

‘There is NO basis to question the integrity of Mueller or those serving with him in the special counsel’s office. And no conflicts either’

‘Trump cannot define or constrain Mueller investigation. If he tries to do so this creates issues of constitutional and criminal dimension.’

‘To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned. Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.’

Even more concerning in all of this is the fact that the spokesperson for the Trump legal team, Mark Corallo, resigned on Thursday and refused to provide any comment on why.
