Harmeet Dhillon Appears on ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’ To Discuss Trump, Mueller
According to Dhillon:
This is a good compromise. It’s much better in the sense that lawyers can help with this and control what information is given and help make sure that it doesn’t stray off point. I think this is a really good development and moving closer towards closure here.
That is the problem with the whole special counsel situation. I don’t think it’s constitutional. Really you have a situation where the DOJ is supposed to be controlling it and as we know, Rod Rosenstein has shown no interest in doing that. In terms of damage control and limiting the impact to the presidency, this is the best way to go.
In terms of the content and where it could go, it looks like special counsel has been on a fishing expedition for some time. Giving the leakyness of the situation, nothing has leaked out. The president has been transparent all along. That bodes well for there being nothing to wrap up. But in terms of the timing, the special counsel does adhere to the special rules of the DOJ. A report like this is not supposed to be released within 60 days of the election. I would expect the report to possibly be delayed until after the November election which would be appropriate. What we don’t want to see is a second round of questions. This isn’t a one-time deal where some questions are done and never answered.
There’s a school of thought that Republicans are putting up with it to show the world how absurd these people are. But I think they do that every day any way. I would agree with you that a firmer hand is needed here. I think what’s missing from this discussion is the fact that the American bar association notoriously a liberal organization that dinged Robert Bork has given him a well-qualified. With that the Democrats are only able to focus on the outside of the room nonsense and not on the merits of the situation. It looks bad for them.
