Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is well known for his calm demeanor and insightful, brilliant mind.
Now, he is speaking about the probe into the (fictitious) Russian involvement in the U.S. presidential election, and has an interesting take on things.
Carson told Fox News Radio that he would prefer giving special counsel investigator Robert Mueller the opportunity to investigate, because “he’s not gonna find anything anyway.”
The investigation into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in an effort to “steal” the U.S. election from Hillary Clinton has been on going, and Dr. Carson asserted his belief that “there’s nothing to find” while likening the lengthy investigation to a “rabbit hole.”
Carson speculated that the investigation’s real purpose is to impede the Trump administration from accomplishing their goals, and described it as “frustrating.”
While the liberals and NeoCon “Never Trumper” faux conservatives continue to seek the impeachment of President Trump, the American people are growing increasingly weary of their relentless efforts.
As always, Dr. Carson provided a unique and interesting point of view on the wasteful and unnecessary investigation that has dragged on endlessly.
From The Hill
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson says special counsel Robert Mueller should be given a “chance” to conduct a fair investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“I would give him the chance to see if he could do that because if there’s nothing there – he’s not gonna find anything anyway,” Carson told Fox News Radio in an interview Friday.
“That has been the case now for nearly a year – there’s nothing to find, that’s why they keep going down these empty rabbit holes. That will continue to be the case because there’s nothing there,” Carson added.
The Cabinet official called the investigation “frustrating,” saying it was impeding the Trump administration’s productivity.
“It’s frustrating because it keeps us from getting to the things that need to be done, and I’m not sure that that isn’t the real reason for it,” he said.
Carson’s comments come as speculation mounts that Trump could attempt to fire Mueller, along with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller to lead the Russia investigation last month.
The president appeared to lash out at Rosenstein in a tweet Friday lamenting a “witch hunt,” saying he was under investigation for firing of FBI Director James Comey last month “by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!”
