Comment: At this point it would seem the democrats have finally gotten what they wanted, a partisan witch-hunt that is bringing the Trump Presidency to a halt. The democrats do not care if the American people are finally given relief from their party’s feckless Muslim president who worked overtime to bring the U.S. to its knees.
Sadley, the ignorant and under-educated hail the democrats and their former fifth columnist as heroes. Unfortunately for those buffoons, should the democrats organic destruction of our republic succeed, they will, along with the rest of us, be victims of a tyranny they so unflinchingly supported….WFM
Trump should demand Mueller quit as special counsel
By Gregg Jarret, Fox News, June 15, 2017
The Washington Post is reporting that Robert Mueller is now investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice, examining not only the president’s alleged statement to Comey in their February meeting, but also the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
If true, this development makes the argument even more compelling that Mueller cannot serve as special counsel. He has an egregious conflict of interest.
The special counsel statute specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the investigation or prosecution.” The language is mandatory. He “shall” disqualify himself. Comey is substantially involved in the case. Indeed, he is the central witness.
The two men and former colleagues have long been friends, allies and partners. Agents have quipped that they were joined at the hip while at the Department of Justice and the FBI. They have a mentor-protégé relationship. The likelihood of prejudice and favoritism is glaring and severe.
So, it is incomprehensible that the man who is a close friend of the starwitness against the president… will now determine whether the president committed a prosecutable crime in his dealings with Mueller’s good friend. Mueller cannot possibly be fair in judging the credibility of his friend versus the man who fired him.
Is the special counsel now motivated to retaliate against the president for ending Comey’s career at the FBI? Will he be tempted to conjure criminality where none actually exist?
Even worse, are Mueller and Comey now “colluding” by acting as co-special prosecutors to bring down the president? By meeting in advance of the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, did they plan Comey’s testimony to depict Trump in the most incriminating light? These are legitimate questions that invite serious concerns.
