Russia’s alleged role in the US midterm elections of 2016, often declassified by the US President, Donald Trump, as a witch hunt is coming back to haunt him. The special counsel’s final attempt is where the President thought it would end, but the number of investigators has multiplied significantly in recent times.
The move has thus made the President worried and even more uncertain about his coming tomorrow. House Democrats, armed with subpoena power, on Wednesday, announced a much deeper plan to uproot the Russian, Saudi Arabian, and some other alleged ties of Trump. Adding insult to injury, they announced looking into his personal probes that dig deeper into his global business record of the real estate, where he earned millions.
Trump time and again, has called on that no one should stick their nose into his family’s or even personal finances, with an exception to the case of Russia.
So, when Trump took the center stage to deliver his State of the Union speech he offered his insight into how frustrated he was with the ongoing probes.
“If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” the President said. “It just doesn’t work that way.”
The President is stuck and as the Democrats launch more probes, Robert Mueller’s case starts to look stronger than ever. House Intelligence Chairman, Adam Schiff also announced on Wednesday that he would expand his scope beyond Russia to look into Trump’s business interests.
Schiff, who has already portrayed himself as the greatest antagonist in Trump’s life, made the announcement after the CNN reported that prosecutors wanted to interview Trump Organization executives.
The prosecutors called for the interview after they opened at least two investigations into Trump-related entities. This included possible campaign finance violations related to hush payments made by his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen.
From personal to professional allegations, Trump’s world of lies started exposing in front of the world. Most Presidents in the US history spoke only of the things they deemed mandatory, unlike Trump who wants to have its say on almost every other issue. Therefore, even if Robert Mueller gives him the pass, his earlier claims, and other investigators won’t let him live easily.
The President, when asked about Schiff’s announcement said: “He’s just a political hack trying to build a name for himself,” he told the reporters, adding that Schiff had no “reason to do that.” Further expressing anguish with complaints on Twitter early Thursday morning, he claimed “unlimited presidential harassment.”
The President never in his wildest dreams imagined that speaking of the investigations in his State of the Union Speech would intimidate the Democrats. The comments, however, exposed the real fear that lives deep down inside him.
