Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson argued the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign’s ties to Russia was “risky,” there was some upside.
During his opening monologue, Carlson said the push for impeachment might be set back because Congress could not try Trump for impeachment if he were under investigation by special counsel.
“There is at least one upside, though — maybe Democrats will finally stop posturing, if only for a second,” Carlson said. “They called for an independent investigation and they got one courtesy of an administration they repeated accused of being fascist. For the record, by the way, Mussolini never would have appointed a special counsel. So what is their play now going forward?”
“Trump really can’t be impeached at this stage,” he continued. “How could the president go on trial in Congress before the investigation is even complete?” he continued. “Someone better tell Maxine Waters that her dream has just died — unless of course, and this could happen, that Robert Mueller is himself part of the conspiracy. Another agent of the Kremlin working at the highest levels of our government to undermine democracy from within. Could it be that Vladimir Putin controls every single involved in this — from the investigator to the investigated. Is the conspiracy that deep? Now if that question seems insane to you, you have not been paying attention to the other news channel or Congress lately.”
