Republican lawmakers believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is going in for the kill on the Russian investigations.

Republicans with close links to the White House increasingly believe that special counsel Robert Mueller is “going for the kill” in his investigation into links between President Donald Trump and Russia, according to a report from Axios Tuesday. 

Members of the GOP are said to have come to that stark conclusion based on Mueller’s hiring of lawyers experienced in dealing with money laundering crimes and the Mafia, as well as the intensity of his pursuit of both witnesses and evidence.

Trump has previously warned that investigation of his financial dealings is a red line that Mueller should not cross. But that is thought to be exactly what Mueller is doing, including looking into a proposal made during the 2016 campaign to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

I actually think that when Trump identified his finances as being the "red line" that Mueller then know exactly where he should focus.

Trump is like a child suddenly volunteering that if there are any cookies missing from the cookie jar that he certainly has no idea where they might have gone.

As for the contention that Mueller is "going the kill," if accurate that suggests that he is looking for a conviction of some kind, or to gather enough evidence to put impeachment on the table.

Oh, and he is still gathering evidence.

The Trump campaign has begun handing over documents to Bob Mueller as his investigators probe potential interference by Russia in the 2016 election. 

A team of attorneys at Jones Day, the firm representing the Trump campaign, is finding the documents that relate to Mueller’s queries of the campaign, sources have told The Daily Beast. And John Dowd, an attorney representing the president, said that the campaign is in “total cooperation” with Mueller on the matter. 

I actually doubt that the campaign is totally cooperating as I think they have a lot to hide, but we will see exactly what their information reveals.

Speaking of cooperation there are still a few who are openly resisting that.

President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, retired Gen. Michael Flynn, has refused a new request to appear as a witness before the Senate intelligence committee, a congressional source tells CNN. 

Flynn first declined to comply with a Senate subpoena in May, asserting his Fifth Amendment rights. More recently, the committee has reiterated its request and Flynn has declined again, the source said. 

The Senate intelligence committee has sought testimony from Flynn as part of its investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, as well as whether Trump associates had any involvement. Flynn resigned from the White House in February amid controversy over his communications with the Russian ambassador to the US.

Now it could be that Flynn is pulling a Manafort and making the House subpoena his testimony to demonstrate that he is not a snitch, or it could be that, as has been reported by others, he has already made a deal with Muelller and does not want to participate in every Russia investigation out there.

We shall see.

    This won't work. I think wives don't have to testify against their husbands unless she finds out about his vagina grabbing days.

      She is way beyond that djt pussy grabbing spectacle. She seemed very comfortable and happy at the table with putin earlier this year. She may seek power vs penis or pussy. Small town communist girl. Mueller may want to talk about her modeling days and immigration papers.

    Muellar has plenty to go after. I am not sure if anyone connected to the Trumps is clean.

    A Hollywood investment company is asking an appeals court to reopen a fraud lawsuit against U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, claiming he helped swindle the investors out of millions of dollars as part of a Ponzi-like scheme 2015.
    RKA Film Financing claims Mnuchin and other senior leaders at Relativity Media misled it into investing $81million into Relativity's financially troubled movie funding division.

    Donald Trump will have access to the Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden's documents, but what the public can know and see will be abridged.

    Gadfree, but I'd love to see him take out that big 'whatever' taking up space in the White House.

    Impeachment is the only answer!

    OT Trump just spoke saying a lot of conflicting things. He stated people are not talking about DACA much. Hello Trump there were two record Hurricanes that were riveting. Shut up as if people forgot about DACA. Next, Trump is now saying tax rates be reduced for middle class not the wealthiest. He misspoke speaking of lowering corporate tax rate to 15% saying reduce people's tax rate to less than that.

    How will infrastructure and storm damage be paid for reducing tax revenue and the possibility of war with North Korea?

    As I recall, Flynn asked for immunity for his testimony and his offer was refused. In the end, Flynn is going to be in a lot of trouble with the military for his activities - and he knows it.

  11. You'd think by now he has more than enough.

    How many Ts does he have to cross?
