If his past is anything like his present, Robert Mueller may very well make up evidence to try to jump start his failed investigation. Mueller in the past, as FBI director went to all lengths to get indictments against people regardless if they were guilty or not. Known as a unethical person, Mueller will surely stop at nothing to get Trump somehow. Let’s face it, Mueller is establishment; Trump is an outsider. People like Rod Rosenstein, many Democrats as well as Republicans cannot stand the idea of an outsider in the oval office. Look how far “singing ” John Mc Cain went to get anybody but Trump elected. Not always playing with a full deck, Mc Cain leaked information on Trump while he was running for president. As an outsider, Trump is smart enough not to be on any side. Like Charles Krautheimer said recently, ” Trump is not a Republican nor a Democrat, he is a pragmatic”. As long as the economy stays strong, Trump will have a lot of public support. A North Korea negotiation will bode very well for the president, but in the end, it is always the economy.
Mueller has the support in Washington to go after Trump, but what can really squash this the public’s anger over this witch hunt that has lasted over a year. The public can turn on Washington and will if they continue to see the dirty tricks that they use to get evidence, coherse witnesses and use there typical extortion tactics. The FBI looks bad, real bad. With the outing of Comey, Mc Cabe and many others, the public is starting to see them for who they are, a bunch of thugs who are used to getting there own way. Roger Stone thinks he may get indicted, but for what? Circumstance is not a crime, his association to Trump makes it a crime? Guilt by association? It is absurd what Mueller is doing, that he gets paid for this. He was very weak as FBI director, he looks even weaker now. It is high time this old relic packs up and goes home.
Roger Stone ‘prepared’ for Mueller indictment

WASHINGTON — Roger Stone, a longtime Republican operative and ally of President Donald Trump, said Sunday he is “prepared” to be indicted as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation if that’s where the probe leads.
“I am prepared should that be the case,” Stone said on “Meet The Press” after being asked if he was ready for a possible indictment. “But I think it just demonstrates, again, this was supposed to be about Russian collusion, and it appears to be an effort to silence or punish the president’s supporters and his advocates.”
Stone reiterated that he felt Mueller’s team has found “no evidence whatsoever of Russian collusion,” so he speculated that they may work to connect him to other crimes instead.
“It is not inconceivable now that Mr. Mueller and his team may seek to conjure up some extraneous crime pertaining to my business, or maybe not even pertaining to the 2016 election,” Stone said. “I would chalk this up to an effort to silence me.”

Mueller’s team has not yet drawn any public conclusions or filed any charges related to whether there was coordination between associates of the Trump campaign and Russian attempts to try to interfere with the 2016 election.
Stone also added that neither he nor his lawyer have been contacted yet by the special counsel’s office, and he’s unsure whether they consider him “an interesting person or a person of interest.”
Associates of Stone’s have been subpoenaed by Mueller’s team, however. Stone said Sunday that eight of his either current or former associates have been “terrorized” by the investigation.
Stone on Sunday continued to deny any involvement with Russia or Wikileaks, the site that released Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s hacked emails throughout the 2016 campaign — topics that the president also hammered on in a series of tweets Sunday morning.
Stone said he “had no advance notice of the content, source, or the exact disclosure time of the Wikileaks disclosures,” similar to language that he has used before, and he said that his tweets like the one predicting Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will deliver “a devastating expose of Hillary” were based on public statements from Assange that were accessible to anyone.
Following Stone’s interview, Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, alleged that Stone has not been forthcoming.
“Roger Stone is known for a lot of things, candor isn’t really one of them,” Schiff said during an interview on “Meet The Press.” “Either his testimony before our committee was untrue, our his public statements are untrue. Both cannot be fact because they’re inconsistent with each other. We were never allowed to find out which was the case in our committee.”
The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee closed its investigation into Russian attempts to interfere with the 2016 election in April, but the Senate Intelligence Committee and Special Counsel Robert Mueller still continue to move forward with their investigations.
