Trump’s White House Just Responded To Special Prosecutor Mueller’s Grand Jury

Following today’s bombshell revelation, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury as part of his investigation into the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia, the White House needed to respond and quickly.

In a statement to the White House press pool, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House “wasn’t aware that Mr. Mueller had started using a new grand jury” and quoted Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, saying that “grand jury matters are typically secret.”

“The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly,” Cobb claimed. “The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller.”

Cobb’s assertion contradicts numerous reports that President Trump has mused about firing Mueller and publicly stated that an investigation of his personal finances would be a “red line” that could cost Mueller his job.

Following the contradictory statement, Sanders closed by reiterating the president’s claims that, “Former FBI Director Jim Comey said three times the President is not under investigation and we have no reason to believe that has changed.”

Of course, Comey’s firing itself likely constitutes obstruction of justice, and evidence of Trump’s crimes continues to pile up daily. There is no longer any question that Trump is under criminal investigation and the continued denial, at the very least, prolongs the inevitable, and more than likely, will make his fall harder.

The only questions remaining are when, and who among his enablers will continue to stand at his side on this sinking ship of his own making.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
