This was discussed by Dan Abrams on GMA today.  Apparently Mueller has stated he CAN subpoena Trump.  The question is, obviously, will he?

If he DOES and Trump refuses the subpoeana, you then have a legitimate constitutional crisis like we've never seen.  Two branches of government openly at war.

Bad for the country all the way around.

Mueller may avoid a subpoena just to avoid that situation entirely.

True, and at least for now it’s just posturing. I think Mueller really wants to sit down with trump though. To me from Muellers mindset, this is far bigger than trump.

Pleading the 5th or ignoring a subpoena is grounds for impeachment imo. I think they'll subpoena him, he'll take it to court, it will go through the courts faster than typical but it will still be 8-10 months b4 it's settled.

Cobb will now be replaced by Emmet Flood, who served as counsel for Clinton during impeachment proceedings in 1996. Flood also was the lead lawyer at the White House Counsel’s Office during former President George W. Bush’s second term. Flood is a partner at Williams & Connolly-- the law firm also represents Hillary Clinton, and did so during the FBI's investigation into her private email server.

In December, the administration allowed the sale of anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. Supporters of the administration held up the sale as evidence that Trump could not have colluded with Russia — here he was, arming Russia’s enemy. “The year that began with the narrative of Trump-Russia collusion is ending with an unexpected plot twist — the Trump administration is confronting and cracking down on Russia,” reported Fox News. The Wall Street Journal editorial page mocked“people who say President Trump colluded with Mr. Putin to win the election and wants to appease him now.” Skeptics merely saw the sale as evidence that the foreign policy bureaucracy operated at some distance from Trump’s whims.

Today’s New York Times suggests a darker interpretation altogether. In response to the missile sale, Ukrainian officials have frozen out the Mueller investigation. Ukraine’s government had previously cooperated eagerly to expose the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia — providing, among other importance evidence, ledgers detailing payments to Paul Manafort by the Russian-backed Ukrainian party he had advised.

Now Ukraine is withholding cooperation from Mueller, and Ukrainian officials are not even hiding the fact that they’re doing so because of the missile sale. “In every possible way, we will avoid irritating the top American officials,” one Ukrainian lawmaker says. “We shouldn’t spoil relations with the administration.”

It is of course possible that Ukraine reached this decision on its own, completely independent of any suggestion from Washington. It is far more likely that somebody in the administration proposed a quid pro quo, and Ukraine quite rationally decided it would rather have weapons to defend itself against the next Russian aggression than participate in an investigation that the president of the United States regards as a mortal threat.

The latter possibility cannot be assumed as fact, of course. But it is striking that when the missile sale came up in December, almost nobody even considered the possibility that it might be used as a bribe to shut down Ukrainian cooperation with Mueller.

Emmett Flood is a win for Trump, though.

The president just added an impeachment lawyer to his legal team. That alone is pretty noteworthy.

 

I don't know how the orange buffoon will spin it, but at this point you've got to be pretty dense if you think an impeachment isn't fait accompli.

#WITCHHUNT!!!
