“The documents that you’ve described do not exist.”
Remember when everyone on the left gushed over Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury about President Donald Trump’s White House even after he admitted it has parts that are not true?
Well, Wolff wrote another book called Siege: Trump Under Fire, which The Guardian obtained. Wolff claimed Special Counsel Robert Mueller “drew up an indictment of Trump that named three counts of obstruction of justice.”
Mueller’s spokesman immediately shot down Wolff’s claims.
The Guardian wrote that the indictment section is one of the most central and exciting parts of the book. The author said the publication read the documents as well.
From The Guardian:
Wolff writes that the draft indictment he examines says Trump’s attempts to obstruct justice “began on the seventh day of his administration, tracing the line of obstruction from National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s lies to the FBI about his contacts with Russian representative[s], to the president’s efforts to have [FBI director] James Comey protect Flynn, to Comey’s firing, to the president’s efforts to interfere with the special counsel’s investigation, to his attempt to cover up his son and son-in-law’s meeting with Russian governmental agents, to his moves to interfere with Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe’s testimony …”
The draft indictment, Wolff writes, also spelled out what Mueller considered to be the overriding theme of Trump’s presidency: the “extraordinary lengths” taken “to protect himself from legal scrutiny and accountability, and to undermine the official panels investigating his actions”.
According to Wolff, Mueller endured tortured deliberations over whether to charge the president, and even more tortured deliberations over the president’s power to dismiss him or his boss, the then deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein. Mueller ultimately demurred, Wolff writes, but his team’s work gave rise to as many as 13 other investigations that led to cooperating witness plea deals from Michael Cohen, David Pecker of American Media and Trump Organization accountant Allen Weisselberg.
“The Jews always flip,” was Trump’s comment on those deals, according to Wolff.
One problem. Mueller’s spokesman Peter Carr said: “The documents that you’ve described do not exist.”
Did Wolff hand over fake documents to The Guardian? Did The Guardian lie about reading the documents?
I can dream that the left and #NeverTrump people will brush aside Wolff and his newest fiction book, but I doubt it. They cried and whined after Mueller’s report showed no collusion between Trump and Russia. They hated the fact that Mueller remained quiet on whether Trump should have obstruction charges thrown at him. Quite a few Democrats have not dropped impeachment talks no matter how many times Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tries to stop them.DONATE
