For the 3rd consecutive day there is a bombshell report coming out of Washington DC, and yet again it could prove to be perilous for the embattled President of the United States. Donald J. Trump.
After months of calls for an independent prosecutor to investigate Russian Meddling in the American election, and the very obvious ties between the Trump administration and the Kremlin, the Justice Department has relented, and appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller to oversee the Federal investigation into a scandal that could rock the US institution of government to it’s core.
The announcement is a surprise, even after it had been revealed that Trump declassified highly sensitive information to the Russian Federation in the Oval Office, and the revelation of the Former FBI director James Comey’s memos that implicate Trump in a conspiracy to obstruct the investigation into his administration.
.@wolfblitzer: I understand you know Mueller. What do you think?

Congressional Republicans, and the Justice Department had deflected the growing cries for special counsel, even with impeachment proceedings now possible.
Attorney general Jeff Sessions is under the microscope, plenty of observers are curious about his role in the Comey firing, and the Trump train wreck over the last 72 hours gave him no choice but to accept the inevitable.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the appointment after rejecting the need for such as recently as yesterday.
The reverberations of this incredible development will be felt all over Washington, on both sides of the fence.
Some experts are making the argument that the President is already ripe for an indictment for obstructing an active investigation.
The Comey memos, the interview with Lester Holt, the odd firing of James Comey, and the confusing fallout afterwards, it won’t be very difficult to convict the President with an objective independent investigation.
Former director Mueller is also the former head of the FBI, it’s doubtful he appreciates the manner in which Comey was dismissed, or the affront to democracy that has taken place over the last year.
This was the right decision for America, and all eyes will be focused on prosecutor Muller to ensure that the White House is not attempting to influence him, or intimidate him in anyway.
This appointment could be the beginning of the end for the President, it’s a sign that his perceived control over the investigation was but an illusion.
I would advise everyone to get your popcorn ready.
