Trump to steal spotlight from Mueller testimony with plans of his own

Trump and Mueller

There may be a very strategic method behind the madness of the scheduling of President Donald Trump’s campaign run for the 2020 election. The Trump campaign announced on Tuesday that the president will be holding a campaign rally on the same day that former special counsel Robert Mueller testifies before two US House committees about his investigation into Russian election meddling.

President Trump’s “Keep America Great Rally” will be held in Greenville, NC, on July 17. And it will be earlier in that day that Mueller will testify in an open session before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees about his investigation. This probe found no collusion between Trump and the Russians but it also did not absolve Trump of trying to obstruct the subsequent investigation.

“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy,” Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the Judiciary Committee wrote in a past statement.

At a May press conference, Mueller said he would stick to the findings of the report if asked to testify before Congress.

The president formally kicked off his campaign for a second term last month at a highly emotional rally in Orlando, Florida. This rally in North Carolina is sure to have the same intensity, especially with what will be on the front burner politically with Mueller. 

What do you think about the time of this scheduled rally? How hard do you think Trump will hit on the Mueller issue and his testimony before the Washington committees? Do you believe that Mueller will actually go beyond his findings revealed in the report on his investigation? 

We look forward to seeing your thoughts on this convergence. Please leave your comments in the section just below this article.
