When President Donald Trump lashed out against Robert Mueller by name earlier this month, the president’s supporters sprang into action — treating the chief Russia investigator to political campaign-style opposition research.

Within hours, the Drudge Report featured a story blaming Mueller, the special counsel leading the Justice Department’s Russia probe, for the FBI’s clumsy investigation into the 2001 anthrax attacks when Mueller ran the bureau. The independent pro-Trump journalist Sara Carter posted a story charging that Mueller, as a federal prosecutor in Boston in the mid-1980s, had covered up the FBI’s dealings with the Mafia informant Whitey Bulger. Carter was soon discussing her findings in prime time with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Meanwhile, Trump supporters on Twitter circulated video of testimony Mueller gave to Congress ahead of the 2003 Iraq War in which he endorsed the view, later proved false, that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.

To some, the barrage looked coordinated among pro-Trump allies and media outlets, a concerted effort to tarnish Mueller’s reputation as part of a political strategy to undermine, or even eventually fire, the Russia investigator.

“It looks like the beginnings of a campaign,” a source familiar with Trump’s legal strategy said. “It looks like they are trying to seed the ground. Ultimately, if the president determines he wants to fire Mueller, he’s going to want to make sure there’s ample public record that he can fall back on.”

While Trump has long publicly denounced the Russia probe, and Mueller has been the target of criticism since he first began his work, both Democratic and Republicans observers say the latest wave of personal attacks on Mueller seem more barbed — and personal — than ever.

Even as they accuse the Justice Department and FBI of anti-Trump bias and unethical tactics, Trump’s conservative allies seem increasingly determined to undermine the personal credibility of Mueller, whom a new CNN poll shows has far more public support for his handling of the Russia probe, at 48 percent, than does the president, at 32 percent.

Trump's supporters sure are stubborn. Can't believe that a third of Americans are that fucking stupid. So many Rugian's and Forwyn's. Hopefully the opiod epidemic wipes them out.

-Lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump of all people because of their harmful identity politics and establishment corruption
-Doubled down on said identity politics and cracked down on non-estsblishment institutions after the election
-Thinks Trump voters are the stubborn ones

Also, I'm not doing anything to attack Mueller, mostly because I long ago wrote off the investigation as a nothing burger. So there.

A nothing burger that has turned up legitimate evidence of wrongdoing within the administration?

Sure, I guess, if you redefine nothing as something.

Manafort and other top lieutenants are basically convicted of treason and it's still a nothingburger to cuckservatives.

Fucking retards don't need evidence. They have each other in a band of alt-right ignorance.

"It involves 12 counts, per Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel's office: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration Act statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts."

Conspiracy against the US isn't treason. You may be half white and half mexican but you're a full-on fucking retard.

Treason is a very specific crime in US law and its the only criminal law in our constitution. Which incidentally, also requires an automatic application of the death penalty. So lets be careful about throwing around treason accusations

While Dukhat is dumb for saying "basically convicted of treason," in any sense of non-legal terms, it's treason.

petty dictator child Trump going after Amazon again (and w/ lies, go figure) because Amazon owner also runs Washington Post which runs articles that don't kiss his ass...


"I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election. Unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state & local governments, use our Postal System as their Delivery Boy (causing tremendous loss to the U.S.), and are putting many thousands of retailers out of business!"


-they do pay sales tax except on the 3rd party sellers

-they do pay the postal service (duh)... and packages are one of the areas where USPS profits...

this man is a constant liar and a menace


and proof it's just a vendetta, Trump tweets linking hatred of WaPo & Amazon

"
Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?

The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad.....

It's hard to read the Failing New York Times or the Amazon Washington Post because every story/opinion, even if should be positive, is bad!

A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!

The @washingtonpost, which loses a fortune, is owned by @JeffBezos for purposes of keeping taxes down at his no profit company, @amazon.

The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!

So many stories about me in the @washingtonpost are Fake News. They are as bad as ratings challenged @CNN. Lobbyist for Amazon and taxes?

If @amazon ever had to pay fair taxes, its stock would crash and it would crumble like a paper bag. The @washingtonpost scam is saving it!

The @washingtonpost loses money (a deduction) and gives owner @JeffBezos power to screw public on low taxation of @Amazon! Big tax shelter

The @washingtonpost, which is the lobbyist (power) for not imposing taxes on #Amazon, today did a nasty cartoon attacking @tedcruz kids. Bad

w/ first complaint Dec 2015, so he's lying about that too... before that just telling people to buy books on Amazon

almost all of those tweets around Dec 7 2015 & Jul 22 2017, so almost certainly a WaPo article he hated around those two dates

this 'man' must be stopped

Let's be real, this was some dangerously reckless and politicized editorialization.

Trump ends covert CIA program to arm anti-Assad rebels in Syria, a move sought by Moscow

do you support the President using his power for personal vendettas?

this is like his Macy's assault as candidate (& they weren't even critical of him, just embarrassed to be associated with him as they should be)

The Twitterman is extremely jealous of Bezos because he made his money on his own and didn't have a daddy handing him $million bucks when he turned 21. Yet Bezos is now considered to be the wealthiest American in history. $110 billion and climbing.
Penis envy to the max.

I actually agree that Amazon is a reckless entity that has grown mostly by evading tax laws. I bouht most of my stuff from their early on because they had the same prices but no tax, making them cheaper.

And despite having market cap that now exceeds wal-mart and has for a while, they pay way less tax.

Amazon is one of the largest net job destroyers in the economy and yet pays little taxes which are needed to pay to help retrain and transition the workers it displaces.


That being said, Trump is a fucking idiot and doesn't care about any real economic reasoning. He just hates Bezos for his left-wing politics.
