Republican Judiciary chairman: Trump should let Mueller do his job

Source: The Hill

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is urging President Trump to not interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation after Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was charged on Monday.

"The president should let the special counsel do his job," Grassley, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Spokesmen for Grassley didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Manafort has been charged with 12 counts including conspiracy against the United States, according to the special counsel's office. Manafort’s former business partner and protegé, Rick Gates, who was ousted from the pro-Trump group America First Policies in April, has also been charged.

2. Hey Grassley

Several months ago, you were working on a bill to block Trump from being able to fire Mueller. Or, to have him moved to being an independent special prosecutor if he was fired. How's that going?

11. True.

 

That won't happen until his base deserts him. I'm not holding my breath (and btw, haven't we seen well enough that the pukes put party over country--and justice, and checks and balances--every time?).

6. He's a goner the day he signs the huge tax cuts for billionaires bill.

Bye bye Drumpf! That's why I so want Mueller to also have the good on Pence. Pence is complicit and a racist, misogynistic, hypocritical liar who would be worse domestically than Drumpf.

8. Hey Chuck and your side kick Nunes, remember this

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/22/us/politics/russia-investigation-congress-intelligence-committees-gowdy.html



Take your pick................there Grassley and Nunes, now what are you going to do, they got one person to flip, do you think Manafort and this Gates character are waiting for a pardon, have you read the indictments------------conspiracy against the UNITED STATES-------------------that sounds like TREASON and James Clapper just said it with Chris Jansen .

And as a side note of some importance Chuck, do you and your senate leader(s) remember confirming one Wilbur Ross----------let that sink in, he ran the Bank of Cyprus and so did the Russians ------------Chuck

9. Grassley may be guessing that tRump might now be angry enough to fire Mueller,

After all, Drumpf is the dumbest POTUS in modern American history, and he may think he can stop the investigation by firing Mueller
No more Mueller = no more investigation......No more investigation = no more indictments.
(or so he may think)

10. When you have Chuck Grassley AND Trey Gowdy saying the same thing

about Trump leaving Mueller alone that says volumes in my opinion. They both carry a lot of weight. But frankly, unless we hear it from Ryan and Turtle, then I don't think what anyone says matters.
