“I’m de Wuller-de-Wust, an’ you’re de one I’m after!”

Uttered in a spooky, moaning, apparently disembodied voice, these were the words Br’er Rabbit repeatedly used in one of the Uncle Remus stories to scare the bejeebers out of Br’er Fox and other critters – who all acted like cowardly fools in response. These days, Donald Trump is acting as if he thinks special counsel Robert Mueller is the scary will-o’-the-wisp (in African lore, a sort of marsh-demon); and Trump is looking foolish in response.

Except that maybe Trump, unlike Br’er Fox, has good reason to be worried. Maybe Mueller is after him. Maybe he has Trump cornered. Maybe Trump’s only good option is to evacuate, lickety-split, down the road. And maybe he should do so sooner, rather than later, because otherwise the will-o’the-wisp will turn Trump’s whole manor inside out and leave Trump and Trumpland as hollow husks quivering in the passing wind.

(Please, no politically correct complaints that the Uncle Remus stories are racist; these stories, attributed to illiterate blacks, show a genius and insight into human nature every bit as rich and admirable as those of Aesop.)

Personally, I see Mueller as far more like a honey badger than a will-o’the-wisp. He’ll hunt Trump down and won’t let go.

A little background is in order. For two decades, in two Democratic presidencies and two Republican ones, I’ve had the Department of Justice (DoJ) wired (figuratively speaking). I reported information related to the Clinton scandals that nobody else did. I reported inside scoops, pro and con, on various DoJ matters under Bush. I repeatedly helped expose key shenanigans within the Obama DoJ. It doesn’t matter who is at the top; I get information from below.

Through my sources, I also know how to read the signs. And the signs point toward trouble for Trump. Moreover, Trump knows that he’s the one Mueller’s after…..
