When Don bullied Jeff

The Post reports Mueller is looking at Trump’s campaign to bully Sessions into resigning last July…

…according to people familiar with the matter who said that a key area of interest for the inquiry is whether those efforts were part of a months-long pattern of attempted obstruction of justice.

That’s certainly what they looked like out here in civilian world, but maybe they were just Trump’s mischievous sense of fun.

In recent months, Mueller’s team has questioned witnesses in detail about Trump’s private comments and state of mind in late July and early August of last year, around the time he issued a series of tweets belittling his “beleaguered” attorney general, these people said. The thrust of the questions was to determine whether the president’s goal was to oust Sessions in order to pick a replacement who would exercise control over the investigation into possible coordination between Russia and Trump associates during the 2016 election, these people said.

Well, good. I want to see Trump brought down with a bang, like the bang when a heavy statue hits the pavement and breaks into 14 pieces. I’m very vindictive about it. Judge me if you like.
