It seems pretty obvious to me that every moment Trump doesn’t strike first against Mueller is a moment wasted. It seems from a politically strategic standpoint it would be best for Trump if he struck first and struck first hard. I would fire Mueller as quickly as humanly possible, then pardon everyone involved in what happened and then hunker down for the next two months. I don’t understand why Trump would wait until either Mueller strikes first or the House officially flips.
It just doesn’t make any sense.
So maybe something’s going on that I don’t know about. Maybe, there’s a lot going on that I don’t know about. But I will be shocked if this “phony war” between Trump and Mueller lasts until January. It makes a lot more sense for Trump to strike Muller now during the holidays than wait until people might have their fully attention focused on Trump in January.
I honestly don’t know what is going to happen at this point.
