After over a year, Robert Mueller is desperate to find something to prove that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
But so far he’s found nothing.
And Trump’s lawyer knows this, and he did something crazy to call his bluff.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is the perfect lawyer for President Donald Trump.
He’s tough, he’s fearless, and he knows how to win; just like Trump.
So when he was tapped to take over Trump’s legal defense against Robert Mueller’s witch hunt, he didn’t skip a beat. He immediately began taking shots and Mueller, challenging his entire investigation.
And after just a handful of months on the president’s legal team, the former New York City mayor has changed the game.
He has forced Mueller into a corner where his investigation has made virtually no movement. Not only that, but a historically low amount of Americans trust Mueller, with just over 30 percent approving of him in a recent poll.
So while Mueller’s investigation used to be a big deal for Trump, it isn’t so much anymore.
Not only do the American people not approve of the investigation, but it has become clear that Mueller himself doesn’t have anything on President Trump.
That’s why Rudy Giuliani is calling is bluff, stating “It’s like a guy playing poker. [Mueller is] bluffing, and he’s only got a pair of twos.”
This statement comes in response to the long-winded series of evidence showing that Mueller doesn’t actually have any evidence against President Trump.
In fact, he doesn’t have any evidence that anybody close to Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Since beginning his investigation, Mueller had a few key moments during the lead-up to the 2016 election that he used to make the public perceive wrongdoing. But all of those moments were exposed as nothing after the slightest scrutiny.
Most notable was the Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer.
That meeting was played up for weeks, with every mainstream news station talking about it as if it was the end of the world. But upon closer inspection, nothing illegal or even unethical occurred in that meeting.
In fact, as stated by Donald Trump Jr., the meeting was a boring waste of time.
Despite all that, the media played it up, but only for as long as they could get away with playing it up.
After a few weeks, everybody realized that the meeting was at best a boring waste of time, and at worst a setup in order to create circumstantial evidence of Trump colluding with Russia.
But regardless, it wasn’t the smoking gun many were hoping it would serve to be.
Since the Trump Tower meeting lost its weight in the media, Mueller has been using more nefarious methods to try to make it seem as though Trump colluded with Russia.
Within his special counsel investigation, Mueller has been pursuing charges on former Trump campaign officials that have nothing to do with Russia collusion.
Those charges seem to be a way for Mueller to give the media fodder to connect Trump to his investigation without having any evidence. And those charges are about as solid of proof you can get that Mueller has nothing on Trump and that his tough-guy persona in the media is all a façade.
