Donald Trump has been using Robert Mueller’s silence to his benefit over the past two years, but the special counsel is in the final stages of preparing to testify before Congress – and that’s something that should scare the hell out of the criminal president.

Once Mueller testifies and he’s asked a question, “Mr. Mueller, is this obstruction of justice, not that the president can be charged?” and now you have an animate human object saying yes, that is a very definitive other side to the story. Right now, Trump has just been producing the show himself. Once there’s a human, a credible human, saying those words, it lands in a very different place for memoriam.
Mueller’s testimony will be a game-changer
Outside of the tinfoil hat-wearing minority of the country that still supports this corrupt and unfit president, Mueller is a respected and credible figure, even among Republican voters.
Once he – not attorney general William Barr or a 400-page document – is on the record explaining that there was clear evidence that Trump obstructed justice, it will be a game-changer.
It will, as Donny Deutsch said on Monday, end Trump’s two-year run of controlling the narrative surrounding Mueller’s investigation.
Once a man with Robert Mueller’s stature and credibility publicly crushes the lies being spewed by Trump and his attorney general, the house of cards will start crashing down.
