Lordy, lordy Mr. President. That Russian probe doesn't sound like "fake news" now that indictments are starting to come down

America's Twitter-In-Chief claims the Russian probe is "fake news" but has gone silent on the matter now that federal indictments are coming down.

(NATIONAL) -- America's scatological, attention and truth-challenged President, Donald Trump, true to form has been whining and moaning and telling everybody in America for months that the Mueller probe into Russia's meddling in our political process is "fake news" and a "witch hunt" and there's nothing there.
That's the kind of fearful, stupid thing people say when they want to distract you from the serious business at hand because that business could end with his rear end in a ringer and the rear ends of many of those around him, present and past, up a creek with no paddle.
Secondly, it's the only dance number Trump knows when he's in the wrong on something, which is most of the time.
Congressman Denny Heck labeled that dance number "Trump's 3-D Movie: Deception, Deflection, Distraction," back in July during an interview on one of the cable news shows.
Trump is a one-trick pony with those three D's.
Anyone with an ounce of brains knows that if Trump wasn't scared to death of the Mueller probe he'd welcome it. He would say, "Damn straight pardner, let's get to the bottom of those commie bastards who dared try to interfere in the election process of the greatest nation on earth and let the chips fall where they may!"
Trump is a frightened little man
The reason Trump doesn't say that is because he's scared spit-less of how many people close to him or were close to him will be indicted and who they'll sing to and what they will say to cut deals with prosecutors for a shorter prison term.
And what if they sing in such a manner he, our esteemed Twitter-in-Chief Captain Hairspray gets charged with a felony or two or three or impeached or both?
Trump's scared all right, damned scared.
The other reason this clueless, incompetent, nasty-tempered, tee-vee watching President engages in such talk is that he knows that all of his extremist and white supremacist pals who helped put him office will buy that nonsense and that's all he cares about because Trump never had any intention of being the President of all Americans, just those who think like...well...like David Duke, won of Trump's ardent supporters.
So what do you say now Mr. President, now that the cat's out of the bag thanks to CNN (boy do you hate those reporters, huh?) that a federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the Russian investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, "according to sources briefed on the matter."
You think Robert Mueller's playing games with "fake news" in getting indictments in this case Mr. President? If so, then you're dumber than most Americans think you are.
CNN reported the charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge but that "plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are."
So you think the feds taking people into custody is fake news now Mr. President?
How curious it is that Trump has been mouthing off for months about what fake news the Russian probe is but when CNN asked the White House for a comment on their story all they got was "the White House...had no comment, a senior administration official said Saturday morning."
Well, well. Cat must have got somebody's tongue in the White House. One wonders why Trump's people didn't issue a press release calling Mueller's indictment fake news.
Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and now it's beginning to look like he's ready to start reeling in some possible skank-bag Russkie enablers or conspirators or traitors to the US or all three.
Here's how CNN described the action on Friday:
"On Friday, top lawyers who are helping to lead the Mueller probe, including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the court room at the DC federal court where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the Russia investigation.
Reporters present saw a flurry of activity at the grand jury room, but officials made no announcements.
Shortly after President Donald Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey, Rosenstein (Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation) appointed Mueller as special counsel.
Mueller took the reins of a federal investigation that Comey first opened in July 2016 in the middle of the presidential campaign.
Mueller is authorized to investigate "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation," according to Rosenstein's order.
The special counsel's investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as obstruction of justice by the President, who might have tried to impede the investigation. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russia."
Well, well Mr. President. It's pretty evident why you're scared to death over this probe. But you just keep on telling yourself and the world it's all just fake news.
That will be very helpful to you. Just like all the other lies, untruths and half-truths you spew out of that Twitter account like the village idiot.
Then again, perhaps its time you quit that President gig and go back to "reality TV," where people buy that patented Trump goofball narcissist act and don't ask hard questions.
