Trump Responds To Appointment Of Special Counsel

Tyler Durden's picture

President Trump has just issued the following statement in response to the news that former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been appointed as Special Counsel in an investigation looking into his campaign's alleged collusion with Russia intended to throw the 2016 campaign.  Taken at face value, it seems to confirm what the administration has said several times, namely that, like many of us, the White House is eager to proceed with, and conclude, an investigation as quickly as possible. 

"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.  I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.  In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issue that matter most to the future of our country."


Per our earlier post, in an effort to avoid any conflicts, the Department of Justice has confirmed that the White House was only informed of Acting Attorney General Rosenstein's decision to appoint a Special Counsel in the Russia probe after the order was already signed.

Of course, we're all waiting with bated breath to see whether Trump will offer any other, less-scripted thoughts via Twitter.

Trump should be less talk and more action. He kinda took a break after the first 100 days. WTF.

Now he lets media play him like a violin.

He should move away from them, or...

Trump should have Chuck Norris as a press secretary.

That would get him back to work and keep MSM in check.

A Trump counter attack would be to loudly and immediatly push into action an investigation of Hell-ary and the corrupt Clinton machine.  This would take attention from the theatrics of the Russian investigation.  Come on Mr. Trump.  It is quickly reaching the point where you can ask of yourself "What have I got to lose"?

"I will never stop fighting for the people of this country."
"I'm a nationalist and a globalist."

Pick one.

Mycroft Holmes IV's picture

Trump's old school - when he says globalist, he means be active in trade and keep the peace.

We can't isolate ourselves; we need to have bilateral agreements in place that make sure other countries don't leech off our wealth (as our middle class dies and our formerly great industrial cities atrophe).

We also can't let other countries pose threats to global peace (like we have it right now...).

That doesn't mean we should be invading other countries because they buck the petrodollar (Iraq & Libya) or toppling governments through insurection to gain access to key energy channels (Ukraine, Syria, Egypt).

What is going on now is surreal. History will look back at this time as the precipice before a major "happening".

I just hope millions or billions of people don't die.

israel is still involved?  i'm going to go with a yes there.

but unlike president trump, i do not "look forward to this matter concluding quickly", especially now that i have learned, from cnn so you know it's not fake news, that the official position of the fbi is that they never had possession of seth rich's computer:

"But a law enforcement official told CNN that the FBI never had possession of Rich's laptop and did not conduct a forensic analysis of its contents."

never?  fucking never?  they are investigating the (russian hacking) of the dnc and they fucking never looked at the computer of the only dnc staffer murdered soon after the theft, however done, and who was the rage of the internet for quite some time?  fucking never, not even yesterday?  he could have been a russian spy.  and they are the elite domestic investigatory arm of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth?


that fbi investigation into the dnc email theft is starting to look a lot like the warren report and those two on 9-11.

Facts are irreelevant now, the NWO has Trump in its crosshairs.  Comey should be indicted for his unauthorized release of confidential information dealing with his meeting with Trump.  Do that right now, Trump.

Bay of Pigs's picture

Agreed. Just saw the headlines of the WSJ, NYT and WaPo at the grocery store and all them were boldly stating as fact that Trump was guilty of sharing classified material. Never mind they have no source or actual proof to print this as accurate and honest news.

NidStyles's picture

Never mind that it's only classified until Trump says otherwise...

only after Kushner & sugar tits sign off on it

jeff montanye's picture

is it starting to look like the deep state doesn't want to talk about the russian hacking of the dnc emails but would rather discuss trump spilling the secret beans to lavrov or threatening comey with his hope of an obstruction of justice?

should someone, i don't know, an explorer boy scout troop or maybe the league of women voters, take custody of seth rich's computer and see what if anything is on it that may clarify the matter?

does it smell of bleach bit?

has it been wiped, like with a cloth?

Judging by the amount of phlegm & spittle being ejected by the Alinsky press corps thats exactly what it is.

Seth Rich had a laptop? Used to correspond with Wikileaks you say? His laptop is still with the DC cops in my opinion, despite the red herrings of indeterminate hues being flung far & wide. 

No way would Hillary let that get away to the feds, it was all done they say.

Koba the Dread's picture

Seth Rich was killed on the street. In Obamaland, where he was killed, there would be no need to go to his home and impound his computer. No need; no deed!

But perhaps I'm missing something here. Has there been any news about his computer? Did some official entity, FBI, DC police, anyone official, impound his computer? I'd rather doubt it. . .in Obamaland.

Question is why hasn't someone made Herculean efforts in Trumpistan to find the computer?

nmewn's picture

Well according to the PI (hired or paid by Butowsky) is saying one of his contacts inside his former place of employment (the DC police dept) has seen it in police custody as evidence. The upper brass of DC are now saying they don't have it. The FBI is saying they don't have it either.

However...there would multiple detectives & cops who went inside Seth's apartment to tag & bag evidence as they began their murder investigation who would know the truth for sure.

Now, if a bunch of DC cops & detectives start being found dead in the coming weeks & months it will kinda answer the question of its existence even if its never actually found ;-)

Cynicles II's picture

True. The president can, at will, declassify whatever he pleases.

Clinteastwood's picture

You have become so conditioned by the corruption of the Oblamo administration, you forgot that the president doesn't have the constitutional power to indict--it's the responsibility of the attorney general (if you're Holder or Lowrenta, you just call up Oblamo and ask him what you should do).

Mr Pink's picture

Tylers need to stop tweeting their stories or at least wait 15 minutes. They are ringing the dinner bell for Shareblue faggots to hijack the threads

Trump Derangement Syndrome has gone full retard. The media and the Democratic-party is going completely bat shit crazy tonight.

tmosley's picture

Yes, and they will pay for it. Total loss of credibility.

knukles's picture

This shit goes on much more and nothing is found, there'll be one hell of a lot of documentation for Conspiracy to Overthrow.
I'm sure there's somebody at the DoJ would pursue this with relish.  Makes no diff, dem or repub (anyhow) as somebody's gonna have one awesome reputation after the dust settles
Think of some high profile people found guilty of overthrow and pedophilia.

Jayda1850's picture

Hahahaha! Seriously T Mos? You actually think Trump has credibility left?

The battlefield is littered with walking dead. 

nmewn's picture

They were found dead, electrocuted in fact, on the Vermont power grid, hacked by Russian prostitutes peeing on them...LMMFAO!!!

jeff montanye's picture

it's been going around.

but really.  how is the fbi going to defend their decision to not examine seth rich's computer, ever?  

he was murdered July 10, 2016 for god's sake, in a decent neighborhood with nothing stolen.  wikileaks published the dnc emails on July 22, 2016, not two weeks later.  he was the only dnc staffer murdered that whole summer i believe.  

(now don't confabulate john ashe with any of this.  he died way back on june 26, 2016 and was going to testify against hillary clinton in an entirely different case.")

as noted, seth rich could have been a russian spy, a mole as it were.  of course i haven't been trained in criminal investigation so maybe i'm overly suspicious of others.




nmewn's picture

I'm reminded of Gareth Williams (MI6) who, after having hacked into Clinton .doc's, was found dead, stuffed into a locked tote bag, in his bath tub, in his locked apartment, with the keys to the locked bag...under the bag. Just gotta say (now, theres some black humor involved here so the squeamish should avert their eyes) thats one helluva Clinton-Houdini trick that didn't quite work to the benefit of Scotland Yard.

(No wink)

tmosley's picture

He's not the only constantly pushing a narrative devoid of facts. The fact that you can't see that leads me to believe you are either suffering from cognitive dissonance or TDS, if not both.

Or you're just a paid shill. Hard to say.

No need to wait.

Donald, start after the Clintons NOW.

jeff montanye's picture

if i were hillary clinton and i had had something to do with seth rich's death, or know anything damning about it, i would be careful of what i ate, men with umbrellas, windows, unexpected gifts, mexican prostitutes, open cars, small planes.

she knows the drill.


Jayda1850's picture

You have betrayed the people and the issues that matter most to them by your constant flip flops and have made a mockery of your own presidency.

Juggernaut x2's picture

If Trump would have at least paid lip service to fulfilling his campaign promises he wouldn't have lost so much of his base- GS appointments, praise of Israel,  Syria attack, etc.

If you're talking Hell-ery it will be a few more than 100 kg.

what with the medical apparatus and prosthetics in her lingerie.

mueller may be an inspired choice.  under him, the fbi, famously, found or was given the passport of one of the "arab hijackers" at the smoking ruin of the wtc.  the fbi also found a headscarf in pennsylvania.  from incinerated airplanes.

couldn't find a zionist in the whole operation though.

let's hear why they are still not curious about the murder of seth rich on july 10, 2016.  not like shawn lucas or john ashe that summer; they were accidents.  coincidences.  could happen to anyone.

by the way, notice that back then it was a left wing conspiracy nut job thing.  bernie was still a threat.

now it's a right wing conspiracy nut job thing.
