Bob Mueller to Donald Trump: Go F*ck Yourself
As you all know, yesterday Donald Trump warned Bob Mueller about investigating his personal finances, and suggested that there’s a red line there. He seemed to threaten Mueller by suggesting that he could be fired for doing so.
🚨 Bloomberg: Mueller expands Russia investigation to include Trump's business transactions https://t.co/sbJM1eRUgF— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) July 20, 2017
Bloomberg is digging into a lot of transactions that have roused a lot of suspicion, and seems to be looking exactly where Rachel Maddow pointed us to a few months ago in a report that’s been largely forgotten:
FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.
The follow-the-money trail here was actually set in place by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who — you guessed it — was fired earlier this year.
I don’t know if any of those transactions will prove collusion, but they’re shady as hell, and they certainly could prove financial illegalities beyond the scope of the Russian investigation, which is exactly why Trump probably warned Mueller against it.
Is that going to get Mueller fired? If so, it might finally force the Republican party into action.
