In today’s issue: The FBI raid on Paul Manafort’s residence in the ongoing investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller of alleged Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia — for which no evidence has been presented — raised questions for Savage.
“So, we follow the soap opera of Manafort now. They raid his house. It’s like a Mafia case. Gangbusters. There it was,” he said.
“Mueller breaks into his house with a search warrant and seizes records of Manafort: Campaign manager! He didn’t murder anybody! This was not an Islamic murderer who just blew up a building or shot people at work.”
They don’t even break into their house after people are dead. And they broke into Manafort’s house.
Unbelievable to me what a witch hunt (it is). It’s like the Soviet Union now.
And you know what’s troublesome about it? Here’s the biggest part of it, is that Mueller has a sterling record as a Marine combat man — a man who fought at the Marines in combat and won medals. He’s the real good stuff. He’s the right stuff.
What is wrong with him?
So, Mueller’s out to flip someone, if he hasn’t already, and turn him into a cooperating witness. But in what crime?
This is just like the bust of the families in New York. Yeah, you read about this … back in 2011.
“An informant in the case used secretly recorded conversations with Andrew ‘Andy’ ‘Mush’ Russo, who is charged with committing the 1993 murder of underboss Joseph Scopo, during the Colombo family’s bloody internal war. … Howard Santos became a cooperating witness in ’09 after Santos was busted with several of the Gambino associates for the electronics heist” — What did he steal? Like a tape recorder? — “and wore a recording device during meetings with his gangland friends, a court filing said.”
So, they try to use the same tactics on Trump.
They’re treating it like — I’m sorry to tell you, it’s a bigger case than, let us say, the Islamists amongst us waiting to blow up a kindergarten.
This is such a misdirect of federal funds and effort. It’s beyond comprehension how this could be going on in front of our eyes.
My position is quite clear. If there was a crime, disclose it, charge him. If not, close this guy down. Shut it down, already, it’s enough.
How long can he stay in business?
How much money has Mueller spent on this investigation?
It just shows you how incompetent the Trump communications team is.
… I have to say this. The Trump communications team is the worst in the history of the presidency. I have never seen more incompetence in my life.
Why are they not telling you every day how much money Mueller is spending and running a clock on it to turn the tide against him?
