Title: Special Prosecutor For Trump/Russia Investigation Is A Disaster

The Trump Administration may never recover from the decision of Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein to cave into Democratic pressure and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the totally fictitious “scandal” of Trump’s relationship with Putin.

The prosecutor, hired to investigate something that never happened, will not report Trump’s innocence. Special prosecutors never do. They justify their own existence, importance, budget, and staff by finding something to prosecute. Usually the “crime” they end up going after is one that his own investigation has created.

Remember the Valerie Plame affair? After years of work the special prosecutor found that no crime had occurred. The person who leaked her link to the CIA was authorized to do so. With no crime to come up with, Patrick Fitzgerald, the prosecutor, indicted poor Scooter Libby, an aide to VP Dick Cheney, for perjury, a crime that would never have taken place had there been no investigation.

That’s how special prosecutors work.

In the meantime, they hobble the president, drain away his political credibility, separate him from his supporters, and paralyze his administration. No legislator is willing to lend his support for fear of what the prosecutor might find. Each one will run for cover rather than work with Trump to get something done.

In appointing a prosecutor, Rosenstein has killed this Administration’s ability to function. No health care overhaul. No tax cuts. No government reform. All while we await the results of a nothing investigation into a nothing scandal.

And did Mr. Rosenstein get vested with this power to destroy? The Democrats sidelined Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General for doing his job as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and meeting with the Russian ambassador. He was forced to recuse himself when he said he knew of no instance of a Trump campaign official or aide meeting with the Russians. Of course, Sessions was no campaign aide but a Senator doing his job.

Mueller is a fair man and perhaps he will resist the temptation to look under rocks that aren’t there in search of scandal that never happened. Let us pray.

All true. The Administration may never recover. The Republicans have already been sticking the knife in Trump's back.

'When you strike at a king, you must kill him.'

I wouldn't want a politically wounded trump with nothing to lose as my enemy.

Probably wishful thinking but i can dream.

They're not going to succeed in taking him down. They very well may unleash a civil war by trying too hard though.

Not looking good!

Sadly given Trump's mouth anything claimed he said sounds believable.

This!

He'll still have the full power of the Presidency, with little to restrain him.

He's all hat and no cattle. He won't fight. He's brought a megaphone to a gunfight.

Just the constitution.

But fidelity to the constitution seems to be optional these days for politicians.

Which is why the professional criminal class we call politicians are doing it. Trump is a threat to their apple carts.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
