Robert Mueller has been hot on the president’s trail for quite some time now, leading many people to say that the Russia investigation is going nowhere, and Mueller has nothing on the president himself. Experts, however, disagree, and now, it’s been revealed that new evidence has been found at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster. That evidence will not affect the Russia investigation, however.
According to the New York Daily News:
“Anibal Romero, a Newark attorney who represents several undocumented immigrants who used to work at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, said Friday he recently met with investigators from the state attorney general’s office and handed over fraudulent green cards and Social Security numbers that management at the club allegedly procured and gave his clients, Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz.”
The attorney only contacted Mueller regarding the evidence because he was worried that Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department wouldn’t take him seriously since they were the ones doing all the anti-immigrant work.
He said this:
“I wasn’t sure, one, if they’d take me seriously and, two, if this could backfire on my clients.”
Mueller’s team let Romero know that the case was not in Mueller’s jurisdiction because it was separate from the Russia investigation also happening right now. However, just a few weeks later, the FBI called Romero back. Romero says this about that phone call:
“He said to me that he had received a referral from Robert Mueller’s office and that he already knew the specifics and that he wanted to meet with me in person.”
The NY Daily News report continues:
“Romero then met with two agents at a federal office in Branchburg, N.J., and outlined the same evidence he had already given the AG prosecutors. The agents said they would “coordinate” with the AG’s office, according to Romero.”
“Romero said he’s stayed in touch with the FBI and the attorney general’s office but declined to confirm whether either of the agencies have formally opened investigations.”
Romero says, “I’m confident that federal and state authorities will conduct a complete and thorough investigation.”
