The looming clash between President Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller may be coming soon as efforts to nullify the choice of 63 million voters are coming to a head.
Mueller’s recent deal with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen sets the stage for an unprecedented onslaught upon the presidency with a new Democrat majority in the House and the media clamoring for action.
Trump continues to antagonize Mueller, most recently in a series of tweets and retweets in which he called out the special counsel’s “conflicts of interest” and blasted the “terrible Gang of Angry Democrats” that comprise the deep state dirty cop’s hit team of legal assassins.
If things are already hot between Trump and Mueller, they may soon be about to go nuclear if a report that the president’s children Don Jr. and Ivanka are now on the hit list.

Via Yahoo News, “Mueller eyes Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower Moscow”:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump’s efforts to build a skyscraper in Moscow has led him to ask questions about the role two of the president’s children played in attempting to secure a Russian real estate deal, sources tell Yahoo News.
Mueller’s interest in the Trump family real estate company’s plans for a skyscraper in Russia was confirmed on Thursday when Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the proposed deal. In charging documents, Mueller said Cohen falsely claimed that the effort to build a Trump Tower Moscow “ended in January 2016” in an attempt to “minimize” links between Trump and the project and to “give the false impression” the effort ended before the Republican primaries in 2016. Yahoo News first reported in May that congressional investigators had obtained text messages and emails showing Cohen’s work on Trump Tower Moscow continued for longer than he admitted under oath.
But Cohen wasn’t the only person at the Trump Organization who was pursuing deals to build a skyscraper in the Russian capital. Multiple sources have confirmed to Yahoo News that the president’s elder daughter, Ivanka, who is now a top White House adviser, and his eldest son, Don Jr., were also working to make Trump Tower Moscow a reality. The sources said those efforts were independent of Cohen’s work on the project. One of the sources said Ivanka was also involved in Cohen’s efforts. And a separate source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo News that Mueller has asked questions about Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower Moscow.
Would it be wild speculation to suggest that Cohen’s pact with the devil was based on his willingness to finger Trump’s kids?
Neither Mueller’s office nor Don Jr. and Ivanka commented on the story.
Another sign that things are about to get really ugly?
It’s now no longer necessary for the Democrat-Deep State-Media axis of evil to conceal the true intent of Mueller’s mission:
Trump emerges as a central subject of special counsel's investigation in documents revealed this week https://t.co/dOmAfvW0xZ

According to the Washington Post, “‘Individual 1’: Trump emerges as a central subject of Mueller probe”:
In two major developments this week, President Trump has been labeled in the parlance of criminal investigations as a major subject of interest, complete with an opaque legal code name: “Individual 1.”
New evidence from two separate fronts of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation casts fresh doubts on Trump’s version of key events involving Russia, signaling potential political and legal peril for the president. Investigators have now publicly cast Trump as a central figure of their probe into whether Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.
Together, the documents show investigators have evidence that Trump was in close contact with his lieutenants as they made outreach to both Russia and WikiLeaks — and that they tried to conceal the extent of their activities.
On Thursday, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he insisted that Trump was not pursuing plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow after January 2016, casting Trump’s repeated claims that he had no business interests in Russia in a new light. A draft special counsel document revealed Tuesday also indicates that prosecutors are closely scrutinizing Trump’s interactions with a longtime adviser, Roger Stone, as Stone was allegedly seeking information about WikiLeaks’ plans to release hacked Democratic emails.
Legal experts said it’s still unclear how much peril the president might face as a result of the new evidence Mueller has gathered about the Moscow project and WikiLeaks, but his prominence in the prosecutors’ papers puts the president in an awkward starring role.
it isn’t difficult to imagine Mueller as a matador waving the red cape. He had better hope that the president isn’t holding a trump card that will end up with him being the one who ends up getting the horns.
