Giuliani made up the claim Mueller would be done by Sept 1

Team Trump manages the difficult task of being nasty and vicious while simultaneously being comically bumbling and incompetent. Their “strategy” apparently is to try to win their legal battles on Twitter and social media rather than in the courts. Good luck with that. Especially when your head lawyer hasn’t practiced law in years and appears to be getting senile. And is going up against the guy who put John Gotti in prison.

Giuliani said yesterday the meeting was about what the Mueller investigations Justice could share with Congress and not about Trump being investigated. (Yes, I know believing anything Giuliani says can be dicey but still.)

Rod Rosenstein essentially deflated Trump’s attack by requesting the Justice Inspector General investigate. That’s what IGs do. And Republican Senator Jeff Flake basically just told Trump not to go further on this.

Even Republicans are saying that odious sleazebag Roger Stone is about to get indicted and there are rumblings other big name indictments are coming too.

And it’s only Tuesday!

A source close to the probe told Reuters the deadline “entirely made-up” and “another apparent effort to pressure the special counsel to hasten the end of his work.”

“He’ll wrap it up when he thinks he’s turned over every rock, and when that is will depend on how cooperative witnesses, persons of interest and maybe even some targets are, if any of those emerge, and on what new evidence he finds, not on some arbitrary, first-of-the-month deadline one of the president’s attorneys cooks up,” said the source
