The Department of Justice (DOJ ) is madder than a dirty cop who’s been forced to do the perp walk about Special Counsel Robert Mueller refusing to share his opening statement with the DOJ before he testifies before Congress about his findings concerning Russia’s meddling in the 2016 Presidential Election.
The DOJ wrote to Mueller, “The testimony must remain within the boundaries of your public report because matters within the scope of your investigation were covered by executive privilege.”
Inquiring minds want to know why the DOJ would use their time to tell a man who’s been in public service longer than Millennials have been living that he needs to respect “executive privilege.”
Stop and think about that for a moment. Why would the DOJ tell Mueller to keep his mouth shut when Mueller, himself, said he couldn’t charge the current occupant of the White House with a crime because he is the president of the United States? “…a present president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. That is unconstitutional,” is what Special Counsel Robert Mueller told everybody during his press conference about two months ago.
Now, if a man like that doesn’t believe he has the power to charge
the current president with a crime or to tell us about a crime the current
president may have committed that he would have charge an American citizen
with and told us about, then what makes the DOJ think that man would all of
a sudden tell us, the American people, about something that specifically
ties the current president to a crime link to Russia’s meddling in our election system when he wouldn’t tell it to the American people before?
