Mueller’s investigation of Trump is going too far (opinion) – CNN

Case of stopped clock right twice a day? This from CNN:

(CNN)Last month, when President Donald Trump was asked by The New York Times if special counsel Robert Mueller would be crossing a line if he started investigating the finances of Trump and his family, the President said, “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”

The President is absolutely correct. Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing.

Former federal prosecutor whom CNN gives time, space too periodically, has his say, more of which here.

Mueller Investigation — Impeachment Could Be Where Grand Jury Leads | National Review

The end game:

These columns have lamented the Justice Department’s assignment of a prosecutor to investigate the president without specifying a crime or the factual basis for a criminal investigation.

We’ve also observed that no indictable crime is required to trigger impeachment proceedings. Neither, we now note, is a provable crime a prerequisite for the issuance of a grand-jury report.

Thus, the question arises: Is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s impaneling of a new grand jury in Washington step one in the impeachment of President Donald Trump?

Fair question, that. McCarthy expatiates.
