Possible Mueller Path


For John, BLUFWell, here is a plan.  The issue is in the assumptions.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




From The Hill, by Ms Rebecca Savransky, 10 April 2018.

Here is the lede plus five:

Attorney Alan Dershowitz said he thinks special counsel Robert Mueller's goal is to produce a report in the hopes that Congress moves to impeach President Trump.

"I think that's the plan," Dershowitz told Fox News's Sean Hannity, when asked about Mueller's ultimate endgame.

Dershowitz added that he doesn't believe Trump should "plead the fifth."

"If he pleads the fifth, Mueller gives him immunity and then he has to testify and immunity doesn't cover impeachment," Dershowitz said.

Mueller is investigating Russian election interference and possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Dershowitz's comments come after the FBI on Monday raided the office of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

If this is the direction the Special Counsel investigation is going it is surely going to set a new, higher, standard with regard to political campaigns.  There will be no more hiding of information from the public.  We will expect to know about all peccadillos. 

I guess no more President Bill Clintons.

Or maybe our standards will change.

  Will it be going too far to ask if any of the prosecutors have strayed from the straight and narrow if they go after Mr Trump or his Lawyer for trying to hid previous dalliances.
