An honest Democrat savages Deep State, Mueller probe

Today's read of the day comes from a Democrat who has broken with the corruptocrats leading his party to ruin.

Mark Penn was Bill Clinton's pollster and adviser during his presidency, including during his impeachment.  He is also a passionate critic of the Deep State's attempts to unseat or at minimum delegitimize Donald Trump as president.  In his latest column for the Hill, Penn lays out with passion the stakes for all Americans.

Here is a sample:

The "deep state" is in a deep state of desperation.  With little time left before the Justice Department inspector general's report becomes public, and with special counsel Robert Mueller having failed to bring down Donald Trump after a year of trying, they know a reckoning is coming.

At this point, there is little doubt that the highest echelons of the FBI and the Justice Department broke their own rules to end the Hillary Clinton "matter," but we can expect the inspector general to document what was done or, more pointedly, not done.  It is hard to see how a year-long investigation of this won't come down hard on former FBI Director James Comey and perhaps even former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who definitely wasn't playing mahjong in a secret "no aides allowed" meeting with former President Clinton on a Phoenix airport tarmac. ...

Flush with 16 prosecutors, including a former lawyer for the Clinton Foundation, and an undisclosed budget, the Mueller investigation has been a scorched-earth effort to investigate the entirety of the Trump campaign, Trump business dealings, the entire administration and now, if it was not Russia, maybe it's some other country.

The president's earlier legal team was naive in believing that, when Mueller found nothing, he would just end it.  Instead, the less investigators found, the more determined and expansive they became.  This president and his team now are on a better road to put appropriate limits on all this.

This process must now be stopped, preferably long before a vote in the Senate.  Rather than a fair, limited and impartial investigation, the Mueller investigation became a partisan, open-ended inquisition that, by its precedent, is a threat to all those who ever want to participate in a national campaign or an administration again.

Like Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen, and a few other Democrat sages, Mark Penn sees the dead end the party he has worked for most of his adult life is hurtling toward.
