Trump spent his morning pulling himself into a new delusion based on completely false logic and misleading information, so he can justify ending Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Trump started by re-posting some misleading information about an FBI agent Mueller removed from his investigation recently. The Right and Trump are claiming that the “political” text messages that this FBI agent was fired for, “bashed Trump & praising Hillary during the 2016 campaign.”
But they are making the messages seem far worse than what they were. The text messages were literally just some jokes. Jokes can be interpreted at trial, so Mueller is playing it safe and ensuring that the FBI agent that sent them is no longer part of the investigation. The most with this misleading interpretation of the texts that Trump re-posted can be seen below.
But now Trump is trying to use this misleading information to build a case to end Mueller’s investigation entirely. That’s what he was doing all this morning, as seen in the posts below. Trump went straight into attacking the FBI and said it will be brought back to “greatness.”
“After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.” Trump posted.
When Trump says bring it back to greatness, that means he wants to fire Mueller and end the Russia investigation. He then labeled this fired FBI agent as “anti-Trump” without any evidence that proves this FBI agent was anything but impartial. A couple of jokes about Trump in a text message is close to zero evidence that this agent was anti-Trump.
“Report: “ANTI-TRUMP FBI AGENT LED CLINTON EMAIL PROBE” Now it all starts to make sense!” Trump posted. This is nothing less than a delusion. There is no evidence the FBI agent was anti-Trump and therefore nothing “makes sense” like Trump is claiming.
Trump feels he has no choice but to end this investigation because it just charged Flynn and Flynn will be cooperating with Mueller. He know has to create a delusion he can use to justify firing Mueller.
