Judicial Watch: Mueller Is Doing All He Can To Destroy Trump 2020

Commenting on the apparently never-ending Russia "collusion" investigation, Judicial Watch's Chris Farrell said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is "doing everything he can" to "destroy any possibility of Trump 2020," to "make sure it's a one-term presidency."

Farrell also said that Trump's legal team needs to push back hard against Mueller and legally "challenge" every motion he makes. As for the seeming invisibility of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in regard to Mueller's legal overreach,  Farrell said he could not explain it and does not understand it. 

"There's a very grave challenge here," said Farrell on the May 2 edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight. "Mueller is doing everything he can in a political, quasi-legal way to destroy any possibility of Trump 2020. They know he's in office now, they know he’s got a little over two years left, and they will do everything they possibly can to make sure it's a one-term presidency."

"That's the objective," said Farrell, the director of Investigations & Research at Judicial Watch

"I think the current moves to have a very aggressive posture to push back on Mr. Mueller is the only way to go because trying to play nice is a losing hand," Farrell added. 

Host Lou Dobbs said it was frustrating and not fair to the American people for President Trump to "have to deal with a super-authority [Special Counsel Mueller] that is a cancer on this constitutional Republic."

"It's ridiculous," said Dobbs, and the president's legal team needs to "get into court and challenge the constitutionality of this and do it now, and do it every damned day until you find a judge in a court that is responsive to the interest of the nation."

Farrell agreed, adding that "legally everything under the sun has to be challenged. Mueller needs to be told figuratively and literally drop dead in court but also in Rudy Giuliani's own inimitable style."

Dobbs later said he resented the Congress "that has been cowardly and passive in its responsibilities and oversight" of the Justice Department and the FBI."

Except for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Davin Nunes, said Dobbs, "it's very hard to find anyone leading a committee or in any leadership role who's shown any sense of responsibility for the acts that we're all witnessing now and the forces that are arrayed against this president."

Concluding, Farrell said, "And to put the cherry on top, there's Attorney General Jeff Sessions. What is going on with Mr. Sessions? I cannot explain it. I do not understand it."
