Letter: Pelosi should charge ahead on impeachment

How would you like to be charged with a crime where the prosecutor has no evidence? Then, you discover the prosecutor personally hates you because you fired a best friend and wouldn’t give you that friend’s job. Enter Bob Mueller.

I wonder if James Comey understands just how good a friend he has in Bob Mueller. Mueller goes on national TV and lies under the veiled auspice of “I couldn’t attempt to charge President Donald Trump because of DOJ guidelines.” The truth is he couldn’t indict Trump due to Article II of the Constitution, which gives the president unlimited power to fire anyone who works under his command at any time and for anything.

Ugly tie? You’re fired. It’s that simple.

Vindication was only half of why Mueller may have been trying to knife Trump in the back with a parting shot. Mueller’s other motive is to muddy the waters concerning Attorney General William Barr’s and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigations into Comey’s activity concerning the Steele dossier and the prelude to a FISA warrant signed by Comey, which was the genesis for the Mueller hoax.

Mueller now hopes that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will run with his veiled lies to an impeachment.

Personally, I hope Pelosi will complete the split within the House Democratic ranks and charge ahead with impeachment. A recent Harvard-Harris pole found that 65% of Americans want no impeachment, 60% believe there was no obstruction and 58% want to move on from “Mueller.” Furthermore, 55% want Barr to find out how this witch hunt started and 61% want a special counsel to investigate Comey and his fellow crooks.

Come on, Pelosi, start impeachment with 2020 around the corner.
