Trump has been at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, since Friday August the 3rd, where it seems he is vacationing, or is he?
GOP Senator Lindsey Graham revealed late yesterday some disturbing but not entirely surprising news about what Trump has been up to while at his New Jersey Club. Graham claims that Trump brought up his desire to end special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election “numerous times” over the weekend.
Graham specifically stated that Trump mentioned ending Mueller’s probe at least “20 times,” while Graham golfed with Trump in New Jersey on Sunday and had dinner with Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law.
Keep in mind that Graham was only with Trump for some golf on Sunday. This means that Trump is obsessing about ending Mueller’s probe endlessly at his club in jersey. What’s worse however, is that another report from this morning, proves that Trump is not just obsessing over ending the probe, he is planning it.
The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Trump has been meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein nearly threes times every week and claims they have a “great” relationship. “We have great relationship. Make sure you tell them that.” Trump said to the WSJ.
Trump literally called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Russia investigation last week, but he obviously forget that Sessions recused himself from the probe and that Rosenstein oversees the probe.
Trump trying to get close to Rosenstein and meeting with him often, reeks of an attempt by Trump to persuade Rosenstein to do his bidding. Trump has been reported numerous times as believing he can influence people by just talking to them in person, like he claimed with Kim Jong Un.
Trump’s ranting about ending the probe all weekend and him getting closer to Rosenstein, is strong and disturbing evidence of him looking to actually end the probe. He is probably trying to get close to Rosenstein to pressure him to end the probe. He is claiming he has a great relationship with Rosenstein, almost certainly a lie, in order to try and make it seem less controversial when he fires Rosenstein so he can replace him with someone who will end the probe.
