Several years from now, historians may look back on July 21, 2017, at 10:31 PM. That is when Bloomberg released the story "Mueller Expands Probe to Trump Business Transactions."

The tables have turned

What once started as an investigation of the 2016 #Presidential Election, has now shifted to the private sale of a house in Florida that some Russian guy bought nine years ago during the Bush administration. "I think that's a violation. Look, this is about Russia," Trump told the New York Times recently.

Per The Daily Caller, it was only a few days ago the POTUS told the New York Times that it would be inappropriate for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to look into his family's finances, unless relative to the Russian election interference.

And that is exactly what the registered Republican is planning to do.

Mueller has recently brought in a minimum of seven Democratic donors, if not more, to join his investigative team. Trump has adamantly stated that he feels such hiring practices are "ridiculous." The President elaborated to Fox News, "I can say that the people that have been hired are all #Hillary Clinton supporters. Some of them worked for Hillary Clinton. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous, f you want to know the truth, from that standpoint." At one point, Trump wanted to fire Mueller.

Tucker Carlson reacts

This investigation could clearly be an instant threat to the Trump administration, but not in the way you'd expect. When you have a persistent prosecutor with an infinite time limit and budget, be sure that he can 'prove' almost anything he desires.

On #Tucker Carlson tonight, Tucker had this to say: "Russia is a sketchy place. Virtually any financial transaction in that country could be construed as criminal by an American prosecutor out for blood. Ever bought a pack of cigarettes in Moscow? An independent prosecutor could probably nail you for money laundering. I actually think if I had dinner in Russia last year I could be arrested."

Tucker goes on to say that it's very sad for voters. Just hours after they elected Trump they were told the results weren't legitimate or even real. When evidence of Russian involvement failed to surface, we were urged to conduct an investigation just to be certain. We owed it to society.

Now questions of collusion and Russian hacking look like "irrelevant foot notes" at this point, Tucker explained on his Fox News primetime show. Continuing, "Now investigators are trying to figure out why Trump once sold a Manhattan apartment to a Russian buyer. There's got to be something there! Citizens aren't really in control of their own government. People who were never elected are."
