It may seem that special counsel Robert Mueller did President Trump a favor when he publicly contradicted a BuzzFeed story claiming Trump directed his former attorney to perjure himself. But Mark Levin says hold the presses — Mueller wasn’t being altrustic.
Levin believes the media has missed a darker side to Mueller’s statement. He holds it was a tactical maneuver to protect himself while inflicting the most damage on Trump.
“They sat there all day long while this false reporting was going on, while the president was being smeared, while the reporters, so-called, and their friendly Democrats on Capitol Hill were saying this is an impeachable offense,” the “Life, Liberty & Levin” host said.
