Nicolle Wallace reported that a White House source told her that Trump is having a meltdown over the Mueller investigation and that his mental state is at its worst point in years.
The source close to the president tells me today that the president’s state of mind is the worst it’s been since the campaign. And that among the west wing staff, there is a near universal sense of foreboding. New reporting from “The New York Times” offers a likely explanation. Three straight days of meetings with his lawyers in the Russia investigation. The reason to draft answers to questions suppose posed by the special counsel Robert Mueller.
Those long days of meetings on Mueller may have been behind this outburst, “The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess. They’ve found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our nation. And don’t care how many lives they ruin. These are angry people, including the highly conflicted Bob Mueller who worked for Obama for eight years. They won’t even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side. A total witch hunt like no other in American history.” Well, someone is going nuts.
Mueller was given the green light today to go after some indicted Russians. Even with Trump’s hand-picked attorney general in place, the Mueller investigation is moving forward. Democrats will soon be running the House which means that soon Donald Trump will be up against an investigation that he can’t game, control, or manipulate.
The Trump meltdown is a sure signal that more indictments are coming, and it also proves that the president slowly realizes that he is trapped with nowhere left to hide.
