By Exercising Uncharacteristic Restraint, Is Trump Just Keeping His Powder Dry?
Recall, if you will, about a month ago, after the House Republicans were denied documents related to the Russian collusion investigation for many months by the FBI, and finally demanded these classified documents, or “all hell would break loose”.
Well, the documents never showed up and hell has not come forth. So why didn’t the Republicans follow through with their threat and launch their scorched earth attack on the FBI as they promised to do? And further, why doesn’t President Trump, as Commander in Chief, simply de-classify all of the documents the House Republicans want to see and let the chips fall where they may? All of the documents formerly made public have worked to the detriment of the FBI for its crooked, unprofessional and even criminal procedures used to entrap, imprison or just impeach President Trump, and people in the know believe that the FBI is only keeping the remaining documents private because of the horrible things they would expose about the collusion between the Obama administration and the FBI to keep Trump from ever becoming president.
If Trump were to declassify the documents that the FBI refuses to release or un-redact, and if these documents did indeed show collusion between the sitting administration and the FBI, then Mueller and his investigation would be at an end and Trump would be able to brag about another victory/accomplishment for his administration: a major defeat of a symbol of the deep-state swamp. So why doesn’t Trump simply order the FBI to release the documents?
Donald Trump has learned the tricks of the political trade better than many may have thought, and he very likely knows exactly what dirt the documents contain. I believe that he is waiting for Mueller to release collusion charges against him or his family, at which time he’ll lower the boom on the filthy liberals and their pretentious nonsense. The president will use revelations he knows are in the documents to upset any case brought against him and then direct those facts against the Obama administration and their cohorts – including the FBI and the Department of Justice.
It’s very likely he’s just keeping his powder dry and waiting to “see what happens” as he likes to say.
