MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said the odds of special counsel Robert Mueller indicting President Donald Trump are “next to zero,” Tuesday on “Morning Joe.”
“A good source — really good source told me a few days ago and I wonder if you’ve been picking this up too because I talked about the possible indictment of the president, that Bob Mueller at the end of the day, is a conservative with a small c,” Scarborough said. “He is not going to indict anybody if he can’t bring that indictment home and he is not. He’s going to do everything he can do to make sure he doesn’t break china in America’s constitutional republic.”
“The possibility of him actually indicting the president is next to zero, because that’s not who Bob Mueller is,” he added.
Scarborough compared Mueller to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, saying the special counsel will leave it up to the voters to decide how to handle the Russia probe. Much like Roberts did with an Obamacare case.
“It’s much more likely if he builds a case to the president. He’ll build that case and then like John Roberts and Obamacare will say, it’s not my job to do the voter’s job. We’re going to uphold Obamacare and they can do their job in the voting booths,” Scarborough concluded. “Here Mueller is thinking, it’s not my job to indict the president and kick him out of office. That’s Congress’ job.”
