Early this morning, president Trump tweeted the following statement to his army of red hats:
The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people, horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our Nation and don’t care how many lives the ruin. These are Angry People, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller, who worked for Obama for 8 years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A TOTAL WITCH HUNT LIKE NO OTHER IN AMERICAN HISTORY!
The substance of Trump's tweet is not worth going into detail given he provides no corroborating evidence for his accusations, and is clearly lying about a) there being "no evidence" of collusion (there is much), and b) Bob Mueller "working" for Obama for eight years (he served as FBI director for eight years under Bush, and four under Obama).
However, the fact that the GOP just blocked a bill to protect the probe in the Senate and Trump is still attacking Mueller on social media at all hours of the day is proof that the investigation is in mortal danger of being suppressed.
Senator Cory Booker took to twitter today to outline very simply why the Mueller probe must be protected at all cost:
The fact that this is even up for debate is a testament to how utterly corrupt Trump's effect on Washington has been. No other president in history would survive a scandal like this, and the GOP's complicity in aiding and abetting clear obstruction of justice is tantamount to an act of treason.
As Booker points out, the Mueller probe has already uncovered a huge criminal conspiracy involving people directly connected to Donald Trump. To not protect it would be a gross abdication of responsibility on Congress's behalf, and a clear indication that the GOP is no longer interested in the rule of law.
