The arduous struggle to bring President Trump and his treasonous cronies to justice has finally made some significant progress.
The Department of Justice has appointed former FBI Director Robert Meuller to lead the investigation into the efforts by the Russian Federation to tilt the November 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump and the Trump campaign team’s potentially treasonous collusion with said Russian agents.

Robert Meuller was nominated FBI Director by President Bush in 2001 and performed his job so admirably that President Obama asked him to extend his term by another two years before being replaced by James Comey in 2013. He has since been engaged as a visiting professor at Stanford University, where he teaches cybersecurity.
Attorney General Sessions and the Justice Department has finally accepted that there is too much evidence implicating the Trump administration and too much public controversy over the investigation for the scandal to be swept under the rug, and from where it stands now, Mueller appears to be an excellent choice for the job.
Having known him for years, I believe special counsel Mueller is a very good thing. He is one of the best — independent and no-nonsense. https://t.co/nMQo6aHalM

Mueller has been charged with investigating:
“any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation. If the special counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the special counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.”
Mueller now faces the monumental task of investigating a White House which will do everything in its power to sabotage his efforts with the resources of a compromised Justice Department run by the President’s lapdog; but by the end of all this, the American people might finally have some answers and justice might finally be served.
