According to the mainstream media and the team behind Robert Mueller’s investigation, President Trump should be very worried.
Of course, much of this has to do with the sensationalism inherent in the media, as they compete with one another in ever-more brazen attempts at capturing viewers to show commercials to. Every little nuance of Mueller’s filings are seen as some sort of “get him” gospel, aimed at nullifying the will of the American people in 2016 and delegitimizing Donald Trump’s presidency.
That’s why the left is having a heyday with news that Mueller will be “very busy” this week.
Senior appellate litigator Michael Dreeben told a federal judge on Tuesday that he and his co-counsel “face the press of other work” and would like a deadline extension this week in response to a request to unseal court documents in Paul Manafort’s now-wrapped criminal case.
Dreeben is working with Adam Jed, a more junior appellate lawyer on Mueller’s team, to respond to the request from The Washington Post. The newspaper first approached the federal court in Washington on March 7 asking for the unsealing of Manafort documents related to his breach of plea proceedings. Its request came the same day Manafort learned his first of two prison sentences, which together totaled about 7.5 years.
The request comes at a time in which some of Mueller’s subordinates are finding themselves no longer involved in the Special Counsel’s investigation, while others, like Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, anticipate maintain a position near and dear to Mueller for longer than originally expected.
The President has continued to characterize Mueller’s investigation as a “witch hunt” whose impetus was a “hoax”.
Concerns over the timing of the Mueller report being purposefully released as near as possible to the 2020 election have been proffered a time or two, with democrats obviously being capable and willing to allow for such a dirty trick to be played.
