Republican strategist Rick Wilson, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, is claiming that Trump is well aware he’s about to get demolished by special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe — and his frantic tweets attacking Mueller are the only weapon he believes that he has left to defend himself.
Wilson told The Daily Beast about how the House GOP for the last two years has helped Trump escape any semblance of accountability, while attacking the FBI for investigating whether Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election:
“Playtime is over and Donald doesn’t like it,” Wilson quips.
Wilson goes on to speculate that Robert Mueller has known for a long time that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was lying to him – but Mueller chose to wait until Donald Trump had turned in his written answers to his questions about Russian collusion before he made his findings public.
“It now appears that Robert Mueller carefully timed his withdrawal of Manafort’s plea agreement to line up with the president finally turning in his homework,” Wilson writes. “Mueller is careful, methodical, and strategic. His silences are important, disciplined, and consequential.”
Wilson says that “pain — political, economic, and legal pain—is coming to Donald Trump, and he’s earned every bit of it.”
Whatever happens, keep on eye on Trump’s Twitter account. It’s literally watching a Presidency unravel in real time.
