Hillary Clinton urges Democrats to keep investigatory pressure on Trump

Word is, the Robert Mueller-led special counsel investigation into Russian interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 election is nearing conclusion, but it increasingly looks like Mueller will come up empty on finding any sort of indictable or impeachable offenses that could be used to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Perhaps with that likelihood in mind, failed Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton recently suggested that, should Mueller fail to deliver the goods against Trump, the Democrat-led House of Representatives should pick up where he left off and continue the perpetual investigations into the president.

If Mueller won’t do it, Democrats will

Politico reported that Clinton’s remarks came during a podcast interview with¬† journalist Tina Brown, during which she encouraged Democrats in Congress to “connect the dots” between Trump and Russia.

“There is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress in particular, to be doing more with it,” said Clinton, in reference to supposedly ample public evidence of wrongdoing by the president.

“And I’m pleased that under Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots,” she added.

Congressional hearings to inform the public

Clinton referenced her brief time spent as an attorney for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate scandal investigation against then-President Richard Nixon and suggested that congressional hearings at that time were crucial to informing the public of what happened and what was uncovered.

Likewise, Clinton believed that congressional hearings now would help the public get past the legalese of the Mueller investigation’s indictments — none of which had anything to do with Trump himself — or the final report that is expected in the near future.

In her mind, it would seem, the general public isn’t quite bright enough to understand what has been and will be issued publicly by the Mueller probe and needs the Democrats to filter it down into smaller and more easily digestible soundbites.

That, or she realizes that Mueller’s report won’t be the presidential takedown the left has assumed it would be for the past two years and is therefore encouraging her fellow Democrats to keep the pressure on the president in an effort to prevent him from ever claiming full exoneration.

Democrats happy to oblige

The Daily Wire noted that congressional Democrats seem only too happy to oblige Clinton, as they increasingly appear to be of the same mindset she is with regard to the impending conclusion of the Mueller investigation.

Indeed, House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff has repeatedly announced that there is ample evidence of wrongdoing by Trump that he intends to expose through a multitude of committee investigations and hearings, and he is most certainly not alone in that respect, as several other Democrat committee chairs in the House have issued similar statements.

In the end, despite having pinned their every hope on Mueller for the past two years, the Democrats now stand poised to ignore and disown Mueller once his report is released — provided it doesn’t lead to the impeachment of Trump — and will continue to harass the president with investigations and hearings and subpoenas designed to hamper his administration and ultimately force him from office, one way or another.
