'This Is an Illegal Hoax': Trump Calls for End to Mueller Investigation After Cohen Pleads Guilty

WASHINGTON - After his former attorney pleaded guilty to lying in hopes of covering up potential Russian ties, President Donald Trump ended his Thursday lashing out at the special counsel investigation and calling for its demise.

In a pair of tweets after landing in Argentina for the G20 summit, the president called the two-year investigation a "total witch hunt" and accused special counsel Robert Mueller of ignoring crimes committed by the "other side."

"This is an illegal hoax that should be ended immediately," the president said on Twitter late Thursday. "Mueller refuses to look at the real crimes on the other side. Where is the IG REPORT?"

It's far from the first time the president has attacked Mueller and his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, but as time has gone on, Mueller's investigation has inched closer to the president and his closest advisers. '

3. Perhaps.

I can not say for sure.

I have no way of knowing the leverage value, or how it can be used as leverage legislatively, or what timing would be best.

If it were me, I might be inclined to see that comey got his public hearing including a subpoena, then release it all right after he enters the building...though I can't say whether that would be the wisest move.

4. If this nation had an honest press none of this would be happening. ...

A honest press would point out the differences in how the investigations into Hillary’s email were handled and Mueller’s investigation of Trump and his associates.

A fair media might also point out that if Cohen lied to Congress so did Hillary. Why does Cohen get in deep shit for doing so and Hillary walk away scot-free.






The main stream media in our nation is largely responsible for the corruption in our government as it is not serving as the watchdog it is supposed to be. It has allowed itself to become the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party and therefore is as useless as tits on a boar hog.

6. The reason the First Amendment grants freedom to the press is for it to serve...

as the watchdog for our society. The media’s responsibility is to loudly sound an alarm when it notices malfeasance and corruption in our government. Unfortunately while the main stream media does just that with Republicans and conservatives it is a lap dog for Democrats and liberals.

7. 1A gives them the right to act as partisan hacks.

Just like it gives the KKK and BLM the right to spew their BS.

But it still beats the hell out of not having the 1A.

8. The Second Amendment prohibits the government from infringing on the citizens right...

to own a firearm. Owning a firearm involves a great deal of responsibility and if you appreciate the fact that you can own a firearm in this nation you should to your best not to misuse your weapon.

The first amendment allows the media a great deal of freedom but a responsible media journalist would realize the importance of reporting facts accurately and at least a few outlets would be trustworthy. Unfortunately in today’s world I can’t name one source of news that I can fully trust.

I fear quality journalism is basically extinct in this nation at this time.

9. Trump can't tell the truth.

And 68% of Americans know it.
