Yep, the Republican Party sees how bad a situation this is becoming and is reminding the idiot in the WH there is a rule of law in our country. Mueller's investigation is going where the evidence leads and that's how this process works. I know a bunch of right wing Trumpettes in here are following their idioit in chief's lead, demanding an end to the investigation, but tell me how long Starr investigated Clinton and produced fewer indictments?
...
That alone says this investigation is finding some pretty suspicious leads that could end up with even more indictments.

Their words are one thing. We'll judge them by their actions.

drump is “champing at the bit” so he can yell, “You’re fired!” . He wants to walk in the room, all grand, and play his part from a tv show. This is not a president. This is a nightmare of a very bad actor at the end of his role. Sheesh. He thinks hiring more lawyers is going to protect him.

I can't wait for him to sit down with Mueller. I am thinking of starting a wagering pool on how long or how many questions it takes before Trump commits perjury.

The pervert's recent conduct fits nicely into the pattern of behavior of a foreign agent who knows that he is about to be busted.

I know right wing idiot trolls like Pack are calling for an end to the investigation, but when reminded of the Starr investigation of Clinton that produced fewer indictments in its entire time than Mueller has done in the first year they call it a diversion. It is not and is used as a frame of reference about how long investigations like this can take. If there is nothing to hide, then Trump should not be worried about letting it run its course.

Even Benghazi Gowdy points out about Trump that innocent people should act innocent.

Notice, though, that most of the GOP voices call for Triump to lay off Mueller aren't running for reelection. Gowdy, Corker, Hatch, Flake.
