Trump Can’t Catch a Break! Mueller Passes Impeachment Ball to Congress to Spite 45th President!
By excluding Trump's impeachment, he declared impeachment to Congress and to all of American democracy. That's the way the anti-Trump-leaning CNN says goodbye to the now-former Special Counsel Mueller. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi openly told Congress to finish off the 45th President of the US.
Valentin Bogdanov with the details.
Donald Trump's first reaction to the now-former Special Counsel Mueller's only speech in two years was grateful. The US President even tweeted the words «thank you.» After reflecting for about a day, the master of the White House realized that there's basically nothing he could thank the retiree for.
Donald Trump, President of USA: «Look, Robert Mueller wasn't supposed to be appointed Special Counsel. He was dreaming of a job at the FBI but didn't get it. The next day, he got appointed Special Counsel. So you tell the man, 'Sorry, you're not getting this job.' And then, the same person gets to decide your fate. It doesn't work this way».
Mueller returned the favor. After his investigation disproved the accusations of Trump's collusion with Moscow, he made an ambiguous statement that gave hope to the Democrats.
Robert Mueller, former Special Counsel: «If we were sure that the President hadn't committed a crime, we would've said it».
These words of the Special Counsel, who refused to answer questions from journalists and even promised not to run for Congress, were treated by Trump's opponents as his political testament, something like «I'll be back.» However, Congress doesn't want to wait for Trump's first and possibly second term to end. The chair of the Judiciary Committee of the lower chamber mentioned impeachment again at the emergency press conference. 24 rivals of Trump from the ranks of the Democrats are ready for action. Hillary Clinton would love to be one of them if not for the results of the last elections.
Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State: «There may not be tanks on our streets. But make no mistake, we're witnessing an assault on our laws and the foundations of democracy. The current administration refuses to condemn a foreign nation for the attempt to interfere in our democracy».
Nobody has treated Russia harsher than Trump does. Replying to his former rival's reproach, the US president made a statement on the same lawn. Even if Mueller had left a time bomb in the White House, it won't detonate on its own.
«Our expectation was that Mueller becomes the person who finally stabs the anti-hero. Instead, he stepped down. If the Democrats want to do something, if they want to impeach the President, they'll have to do it on their own».
But doing that is virtually impossible. Even if the lower chamber of Congress, which is controlled by Trump's opponents, manages to initiate the procedure of his early dismissal, the Senate will eventually have the last say anyway. Two-thirds of senators need to approve it to impeach Trump. And finding 20 turncoats in the ranks of their opponents will be an impossible task for the Democrats.
