A long list of Donald Trump supporters – from Ann Coulter to Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones – have been quick to dismiss Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation as a waste of taxpayers’ money—insisting that Mueller is searching for wrongdoing that never occurred.
But conservative journalist Matt K. Lewis in his latest article for the Daily Beast – stresses that fellow conservatives should not take Mueller’s investigation lightly.
Republicans – Lewis cautions – are ‘going to feel squeezed’ as Mueller wraps up his probe—and ‘conservatives are going to be put in a lot of difficult situations these next few weeks or months’.
Lewis (author of the 2016 book “Too Dumb to Fail: How the GOP Went from the Party of Reagan to the Party of Trump”) opens his article by asserting that ‘things are speeding up in Robert Mueller’s universe’ and he cites some recent examples: journalist/author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi (who he describes as a ‘Roger Stone confidant’) has refused Mueller’s plea deal and is facing perjury charges and ‘former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about Trump’s business dealings with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign’.
‘Things as they say – are coming to a head’ Lewis writes.
And conservatives – Lewis advises ‘should be ready to accept the very real possibility that serious misdemeanors were committed and lies told’.
