    Default Erick Erickson: Mueller returns and Republicans should rejoice

    The Department of Justice has asked former FBI Director Robert Mueller to come out of retirement and run an independent investigation of Russia’s efforts in our 2016 election. Republicans should rejoice. Mueller is a consummate professional who has a great reputation on both sides of the aisle. But there are other reasons the GOP should be thankful.


    First, that the Deputy Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein, asked Mueller to come back suggests the Department of Justice and White House are paying attention to growing concerns.

    Second, it shows the Department of Justice is willing and able to act independently of the White House to affect justice.

    Most importantly, however, it allows some breathing room between scandals. Now, the White House can say they cannot discuss the matter because of the Mueller investigation. Likewise, they can claim that any leaks must be false because Mueller would never leak. They can dismiss a large part of the story out of hand.

    All that makes the appointment of Robert Mueller a no brainer, but there is something more important going on as well. The odds are that the Department of Justice would not launch this sort of investigation if they did not already have an inkling of there being no real issues with the president. If they were really concerned about the president, they would keep this in house where they could exercise greater damage control.

    Democrats have been railing on about the president, convinced he worked in collaboration with the Russians to steal the election. There is no evidence of this, but Democrats cannot acknowledge what a terrible candidate Hillary Clinton really was. So they bitterly cling to Russia, which is the Democrats’ version of birtherism.

    Most likely, there will be no evidence that Donald Trump plotted with the Russians to steal the election. After two years of Democrats claiming otherwise, this will be another cry wolf moment. And that moment will come during the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats will not be able to assail the credibility of Robert Mueller. When he says the president did not do anything wrong, they will have nothing left.

    That will open a path for Republicans to sow seeds of doubt about the rest of the Democrats’ message just as the Democrats begin melting down in rage against Mueller. They will be unable to do anything.

    Instead of fretting, Republicans should be reassured by the Mueller appointment. The Department of Justice has just blown up a Democrat talking point that Jeff Sessions and those beneath him on the DOJ organizational chart were too partisan to ever do anything like this. And once Mueller gives the president a pass, the rest of the Democrat arguments will collapse, too. Maybe then they’ll finally come to terms with how bad a candidate Hillary Clinton really was.

    Right or wrong, Trump is done. There's absolutely no way he's going to be able to keep his thumbs in his ass instead of on his twitter account. The guy is his own worst enemy with his impatient and the special counsel process is a slow and deliberate one.

    How do you pop off with this kind of BS and expect it to hold water?
    You don't have the slightest idea what all this rhetoric you and your cult of misfits are doing, is doing nothing but making Trump dig his heals in deeper. All this crap is going to come back and destroy people like you Jo. You just can't understand that.
    This kind of destructive behavior by the left never lasts. You may win some battles as history shows, but you never win the wars.
    You might want to keep that in mind.

    Skeeter, he doesn't get it. None of them do and they never will. That hat is on way too tight. People like this think they hold the only key to the dungeon.
    Jo, The presidency is a position, not the man. That's a little hint for you. We understand this. You don't!
    Weather Trump stays or goes, isn't the issue. We hold this admin in full body for the next 4 to 8 years. This administration is just one chamber.
    These knuckle dragging idiot you call your party, are deep sixing yourselves. You'll pull a few down with you which is to be expected but as a party, you guys are finished. You did this to yourselves and you deserve it.

    This is starting to sound like face book. We are capable of more civilized discussion on this forum.

    These liberal don't give a damn about their policies. They just want to see blood. It's a sport to them.
    Watch the interviews of these people. Most of them don't even know why they are making such a ruckus.
    Some of them have a legit complaint but even those can be explained and enlightened to the other alternatives.
    The ones like Jo just follow the herd and hopes that someone in the front row knows what the hell they are doing. Then you have the brain dead that are just along for the ride and to hang out hoping they can set a car on fire or smash a window out. Maybe even see some blood letting. They get off on it but other than that, they are clueless and it's so obvious in all those thousands of street interviews. When I watch them, I am literally speechless that people can be so air headed.

    It's too bad they have the right to vote based on age rather than sense. I honestly beleive we need to make changes in the right to vote.
