The Deep State coup against President Donald Trump entered a new and more worrisome phase as reports indicate that Robert Mueller has now impaneled a grand jury.
Let’s face it, the fix was in from the minute that Rod Rosenstein appointed a rogue former FBI Director who was one of James Comey’s best friends and gave him an open-ended mandate to dig for dirt on Trump.
At this point, the POTUS is surrounded by enemies, someone is transcripts of classified diplomatic conversations with foreign leaders to the Washington Post and H.R. McMaster has restored the top secret security clearance to Susan Rice who was involved in unmasking Trump team members for political means.
Mueller impaneling a grand jury is a sign the Russia inquiry is ramping up and will likely continue for monthshttps://t.co/VCl448Dz7k

The grim news for Trump as reported by The Wall Street Journal “Special Counsel Robert Mueller Impanels Washington Grand Jury in Russia Probe”:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase, according to people familiar with the matter.
The grand jury, which began its work in recent weeks, is a sign that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry is ramping up and that it will likely continue for months. Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or associates colluded with the Kremlin as part of that effort.
A spokesman for Mr. Mueller, Joshua Stueve, declined to comment. Moscow has denied seeking to influence the election, and Mr. Trump has vigorously disputed allegations of collusion. The president has called Mr. Mueller’s inquiry a “witch hunt.”
Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, said he wasn’t aware that Mr. Mueller had started using a new grand jury. “Grand jury matters are typically secret,” Mr. Cobb said.
Mr. Cobb’s deceased relative may have been one hell of a baseball player but he has to know that the “secret” grand jury will soon be leaking to the media like a sieve.
Trump essentially fucked himself when he moved to get rid of Michael Flynn, a man who had the ability to fend off the Deep State by virtue of his time running military intelligence. It’s all been downhill from there and it’s getting harder to be optimistic that Trump is going to survive this. He also made the catastrophic mistake of not firing Mueller immediately once it became clear that his appointment was the result of a leak of possibly classified information by James Comey to the New York Times.
The President is rapidly running out of cards to play and if he has an ace in the hole, now is the time to use it.
The scent of blood is now in the air in the great Washington swamp and the creatures that live within are shrieking in a form of primal longing for the coming day that Trump’s head is chopped off and put on a pike by a rogue special counsel who is going to disenfranchise 63 million American voters.
The Deep State is now moving to checkmate.
