Trump team seeks to control, block Muellerís Russia investigation

And it keeps getting worse.

Quote:
Some of President Trumpís lawyers are exploring ways to limit or undercut special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís Russia investigation, building a case against what they allege are his conflicts of interest and discussing the presidentís authority to grant pardons, according to people familiar with the effort.

Trump has asked his advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe, according to one of those people. A second person said Trumpís lawyers have been discussing the presidentís pardoning powers among themselves.
You really need to read this whole story.

But if he is so innocent, why the extraordinary measures to undermine the investigation ?

Exactly my question. Trump talks about firing Mueller. Trump talks about being disappointed in Sessions because he recused himself. Trump fired Comey. Trump's closest inner cirlce has meeting after meeting with Russians. Trump meets with Putin without an American translator and neglects to tell the public.
Two of Trump's staff have been paid by Russians. Russians attacked our voting process....so they attacked our country.

AND Trump does not want an investigation. Why?

It does seem to almost every person I speak with in real life that Trump is doing everything possible to erase the checks and balances of our government's protection.

It's pretty obvious that Trump isn't interested in checks and balances. It's not what he's accustomed to. His life has been defined by being the BOSS--making quick turns, impetuous decisions--instant changes. Trump feels frustrated and confined by laws, congress, checks and balances, negotiation (which he is obviously NOT GOOD AT although he RAN on his ability to cut a good deal) and the lack of adoration from the American people.

Trump overestimated his ability, his intelligence and his experience. He doesn't LIKE being president because he's constricted. His statements bear this out when he tweets about "this is hard" "this is complicated". Well, DUH, DONNY. Anyone who thinks to be a sitting president is easy is not only naive but stupid.

If anyone can find a crime to investigate and if they can tie it to trump, then they have to charge the DNC , Hillary, and the network news media and the post office all of which blatantly colluded on behalf of Hillary's campaign.

Until Trump was elected there was no check and obviously no balance to restrain the Washington establishment.
