Crossing the red line

Crossing the red line

Bobby Three Sticks has finally done it. Word broke this morning that he has subpoenaed Donald Trump's records from Deutsche Bank.

Remember, Trump has said that looking into his financial dealings was a "red line" which Mueller had better not cross. But like every threat Trump issues, it's an empty one.

What does this mean? Well, it may just puncture Trump's delusions that he's not a target of the special counsel's investigation. One normally doesn't pour through the financials of someone not under scrutiny. Trump's lawyer Ty Cobb may be in for a tongue lashing over his promising Trump that it would all be wrapped up by January. It may very well be, but not to a conclusion of Trump's liking.

Ever since Michael Flynn flipped, things have been moving at lightning speed. By putting Trump's financials in his cross-hairs, Mueller is letting him know that yes, he is the focus of the investigation. One can only imagine what a man with some form of dementia must be feeling as he sees the walls closing in. On paper he's the most powerful man in the world; in reality, he's a weak, frightened old man who is seeing his world crumble around him, and it's all of his own doing.

Come this way for the E-ticket ride.
