Donald Trump may be out of the country, but the Russia investigation is boiling hot after White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller was interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
CNN reported that Mueller asked Miller about the Comey firing, “The interview brings the special counsel investigation into President Donald Trump’s inner circle in the White House. Miller is the highest-level aide still working at the White House known to have talked to investigators. Miller’s role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey was among the topics discussed during the interview as part of the probe into possible obstruction of justice, according to one of the sources.”
Mueller has interviewed former press secretary Sean Spicer, former chief of staff Reince Priebus, and now a member of Trump’s inner circle. Mueller also has the original draft of the letter firing Comey, and other documents related to the Comey firing.
It is clear that the Special Counsel is locking in on potentially charging Trump with obstruction of justice. The White House continues to claim that the Russia investigation is winding down, but judging from who Mueller and his team are talking to, things are still heating up.
In Trump’s case, it is impossible to say if the cover-up is worse than the crime, but it could very well end up being the cover-up that gets him impeached. Mueller doesn’t seem to be anywhere near finished with this investigation, and the fact that it has reached so deeply into the White House suggests that Donald Trump is heading for a world of hurt.
Mueller is going to get to the facts. and it is the truth that may eventually doom Trump.
