Late night ABC host Jimmy Kimmel was downright gleeful at the news that special counsel Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas for documents form Trump's business with regards to Russia involvement in his 2016 presidential campaign, saying the prosecutor has finally crossed the president's "red line."
"According to the ‘failing’ New York Times, special prosecutor Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organization, the president’s company, demanding that they hand over any documents related to business they may have done with Russia,” Kimmel relayed to his audience.
“Surprising, Trump hasn’t tweeted about the subpoena yet, probably because he doesn’t know how to spell the word ‘subpoena,' but there are rumors that he may try to fire Robert Mueller, the guy who’s investigating him,” he quipped. “That would have to be it, right? At that point we are just going to have to wait until he goes to Mar-a-Lago and then lock him in it forever.”
“Trump claimed Mueller looking into his personal finances would be a red line that he wouldn’t allow to be crossed, and now it’s presumably being crossed," Kimmel smirked, before invoking memories of Nixon's Watergate downfall. "Why do I feel like this ends with Melania in a trench coat handing Robert Mueller a package of files in an underground parking lot somewhere?”
