Elder Patriot- President Trump knows he now has the goods on the fraudulent Mueller investigation, and those who supported it. Yesterday, during an interview with the NY Post, the president indicated he has every intention of using that damning evidence as leverage over his political opponents in order to advance his MAGA agenda.
(New York Post) […] “If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that.”
“Some things maybe the public shouldn’t see because they are so bad,” Trump said, making clear it wasn’t damaging to him, but to others. “Maybe it’s better that the public not see what’s been going on with this country.”
For two years the special counsel investigation hung over the President Trump’s head like the Sword of Damocles. Special Counsel Robert Mueller had been tasked with bringing the president down – or chasing him from office – in much the same way Joseph Stalin deployed Lavrentiy Beria to destroy his political enemies.
Mueller has failed to make his case, miserably.
Like a rising phoenix, President Trump has emerged from the ashes of Mueller’s failed investigation stronger than ever and armed with massive evidence of Deep State wrongdoing ordered by former President Obama, for the benefit of Hillary Clinton, and ardently defended by Democrats and Rhinos.
Trump can declassify all of these damning documents or he can hold it over his enemies necks like the sword of Damocles.
Trump has opted to maintain the secrecy around those documents and to leverage the contents of those documents to force the Democrat House to support his agenda.
Sundance, at the Conservative Treehouse, explains how Trump uses leverage:
Leverage is the primary filter here; and it’s not just leverage against domestic political enemies.
President Trump has fifty years of business skills in various predatory and adversarial financial deals. Leverage, or the ability to force an opponent to take an action that benefits your position, is the most valuable weapon in deals; business or politics the same is true.
This type of leverage is extremely valuable and it’s not just against Democrats, Obama and the Never Trump alliance (ie. Sea Island group). President Trump is in a fight against multiple enemies from all sides, across all aisles and political alignments. The declassification leverage is like an atomic hammer that strikes everyone in a 360° blast radius.
And it is not limited to domestic adversaries. This leverage has a geopolitical value.
By owning his political enemies through this leverage, Trump intends to force them into supporting his MAGA agenda. If they play along, they win on multiple fronts – they retain the power and prestige of their political office, and they will be credited with actually being a participant in solving America’s problems.
If they don’t support Trump’s MAGA agenda they will suffer disgrace, the end of their political careers, and possible criminal charges.
Essentially, Trump has turned the tables on the Deep State that for decades used blackmail and extortion to populate the swamp with weak-kneed and easily corrupted members of Congress.
