Trump fights impeachment talk ahead of looming Mueller report
No one even knows when it will come out, but Robert Mueller’s top secret probe into possible collusion between Donald Trump and Russia has Washington on edge -- and the president mounting preemptive attacks against impeachment.
“How do you impeach a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history, especially when he has done nothing wrong,” Trump asked Wednesday in a stream of tweets laying out the case for his innocence.
Urgent predictions that Mueller’s report is just about to drop have come out all year, only to be proven wrong, leaving the country grasping for clues. Every passing week with no news raises the tension. Will the special counsel’s nearly two-year investigation exonerate Trump?
Or will it link him to a Kremlin influence operation in what would be one of the biggest political scandals in US history? Trump is far from the only one biting his nails. National Public Radio made waves last week with a report about elderly people near death’s door fighting to hang on so that they too can see what Mueller uncovers.
