GOP faces midterm disaster as Mueller, Rosenstein, Cohen bombshells explode

BY BRENT BUDOWSKY, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 05/02/18 01:30 PM EDT 41 THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY CONTRIBUTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND NOT THE VIEW OF THE HILL

Brent Budowsky was an aide to former U.S. Sen. Lloyd Bentsen (D-Texas) and former Rep. Bill Alexander (D-Ark.), who was chief deputy majority whip of the U.S. House of Representatives. He holds an LLM in international financial law from the London School of Economics.

Recent bombshell news involving special counsel Robert Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the National Enquire create dire and potentially catastrophic prospects for Republicans in the midterm elections.

Nixonian coverups of Russian crimes against America by some Republicans in Congress, and Nixonian attacks by some Republicans in Congress against American law enforcement — including investigations defending America against said Russian crimes — would be political suicide for the GOP. It might mobilize the Trump base, but it would hyper-mobilize the far larger number of Americans who are appalled by the ever-increasing number of swampland scandals.

If Donald Trump or House Republicans precipitate an epic showdown with Mueller, the widely respected Mueller will win in a landslide over the highly unpopular Trump in the high court of public opinion. What’s more, the legally impeccable Mueller will win a legal triumph over what is left of the Trump defense team in the high court of justice.

The first bombshell story, from The New York Times, considers a long list of questions that special counsel Mueller reportedly wants to ask President Trump about obstruction of justice and potential collusion of Trump associates with Russians for the purpose of electing Trump in 2016. The Mueller questions suggest intense focus on what I call the collusion meeting at Trump Tower, at which highest-level Trump associates accepted an invitation from Russian agents for the purpose — explicitly stated in the request for the meeting — of giving the Trump campaign political dirt against Hillary Clinton, obtained by Russia through illegal means.

A second Mueller bombshell, reported Wednesday in The Washington Post, suggested that in a tense meeting in March, Mueller warned lawyers for Trump that if the president refused to be interviewed voluntarily, the special counsel could seek a subpoena to force him to testify before the grand jury — something most legal experts believe Mueller would be granted.
