By observing the recent actions of both Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Donald Trump, we can see which one of them is confident about the future, and which one is desperately trying anything to distract from the truth. It seems that Trump is willing to sabotage the economy he once loved to brag about, in order to change the subject from Trump-Russia conspiracy against the United States. Through court filings and opinions of legal experts, it can be observed that Mueller is treating this investigation like a mafia crime family takedown.
While we know Trump hates to read, and none of this will be mentioned on Fox News, Trump would be even more terrified if he was aware of the way Mueller took down mob boss John Gotti and the Gambino crime family in the 1990s. If anyone is going to flip Paul Manafort, or other criminals of that ilk, it’s certainly Mueller, who flipped Gotti’s underboss Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano. Mueller ended up with a 60-count indictment against 23 defendants, while using asset forfeiture to go after $20 million from the defendants. Knowing Trump cares most about money and loyalty, it will cause him great anguish when he learns that Mueller and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman are going after Trump’s ill-gotten proceeds due to those he trusted flipping on him.
It must drive Trump crazy to know that Michael Flynn, the man Trump obstructed justice for by asking James Comey to end his investigation, would turn on him and help ensure Trump dies in prison. The punishment for the only crime Flynn pleaded guilty to, which carries a maximum of five years in prison, is basically a slap on the wrist in exchange for help taking down Trump.
Until Robert Mueller came along, Gotti was often referred to as “Teflon Don” for his ability to avoid serious convictions despite his life in crime. Much similar to that, donald Trump’s life of crime had previously never been impeded, and some have even called him “Teflon Donald.” Perhaps while Trump is spending the rest of his life in prison, with no money to count due to asset forfeiture, he’ll take up reading and someday realize the many similarities between himself and the other crime family taken down by Robert Mueller.
