Mueller Blindsides Trump with 3 New Prosecutors, Worst Case Scenario For Trump


Lawyers responsible for bringing down Richard Nixon, Enron and the mafia are lining up for a shot to prosecute Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice or other crimes related to his treatment of the Russia scandal. Special investigator and former FBI Director Robert Mueller is assembling a prosecution team that should make Donald Trump and his team very, very nervous.

Mueller’s picks thus far are three former colleagues from his last position at the Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr law firm: Aaron Zebley, who also was Mueller’s FBI chief of staff; Jeannie Rhee, a former DOJ attorney; and Quarles, who got his start in Washington some four decades ago as an assistant Watergate prosecutor.

Politico explains:
But Mueller’s biggest hire to date was [Andrew] Weissmann, who is taking a leave from his current post leading the Justice Department’s criminal fraud section. The two men have a long history together at the FBI, where Weissmann served as both the bureau’s general counsel from 2011 to 2013 and as Mueller’s special counsel in 2005.

Weissmann’s prosecution record includes overseeing the investigations into more than 30 people while running the Enron Task Force, including CEOs Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling. And while working in the U.S. attorney’s office in the eastern district of New York, he tried more than 25 cases involving members of the Genovese, Colombo and Gambino crime families.’

Again, this should make Trump very, very nervous. These are very serious lawyers that have specialized in bringing down corrupt businessmen, politicians and companies. Sounds like a perfect storm in the works to bring this clown show crashing down.

GQ Magazine puts it this way:

Imagine being a president and a corrupt businessman who potentially is at the head of an immense conspiracy. Your life is full of paranoia. You don’t know whom to trust. The people around you are constantly trying to manipulate you. You’re out of your depth in most meetings. The media won’t stop talking about the scandal you’re at the center of, but you hope against hope that you’ll wake up tomorrow and it’ll just go away.

And then you find out the guys who are investigating you are people who have literally brought down presidents and corrupt businessmen. That’s the situation our president finds himself in now. And if we’ve learned anything from the past two years of Donald Trump’s political career, it’s that there’s nothing this guy handles worse than pressure. I have no doubt that we’re only days away from a Twitter rant about how these guys are losers who should be deported for being FAKE NEWS or something equally stupid.

This is a worst case scenario line up from Trump. I hope he’s ready, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
