Since the probe into whether or not President Trump and his team colluded with the Russians to win the election has proven baseless, investigators are “branching out.”
That’s a euphemism for a political “witch hunt.”
The latest hot topic? Did the President seek to obstruct justice by firing FBI director James Comey, who was investigating “Russia collusion?”
Enter former FBI chief Robert Mueller as special counsel for this “Alice in Wonderland” probe built and fueled by “anonymous sources.”
Mueller is a personal friend and mentor to James Comey, which makes it mandatory that he recuse himself as special counsel.
The Code of Federal Regulations states:
No DOJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution, or who would be directly affected by the outcome. A personal relationship means a close and substantial connection of the type normally viewed as likely to induce partiality.
According to the law, recusal is mandatory.
But the law goes out the window when it comes to partisan politics.
Isn’t it time to just stop wasting tax payer dollars on a do-nothing partisan probe?
Not if you’re the “Deep State” and want to delegitimize the Trump presidency.
The hunt for something, anything “that went wrong,” is proof that this is nothing more than obstructing the President’s agenda:
- It matters little that “Russia collusion” is just the losing rallying cry for Democrats looking for any excuse as to why Hillary Clinton lost the election.
- It matters little that on three separate occasions, Comey said Trump was NOT under investigation.
- It matters little that America’s spy chiefs have testified before Congress that no evidence of any collusion could be found.
- It matters little that this probe, weaving its way from one committee to another, has gone on for almost a year.
- It matters little that the President can hire and fire anybody who answers to him.
But what escapes Trump detractors is that James Comey is the one who should be investigated for any obstruction of justice.
Jay Sekulow of the American Center of Law & Justice said it well.
“He wrote his notes on a government notebook, in his government car, put it in his government computer and into his government desk.”
It was an illegal leak.
Watch this 8-minute video on Sekulow laying out the investigation.
Will this be a fair investigation?
Hardly. Let me give you three reasons why it won’t be.
- Reason No. 1: Corrupt conflict of interest. Mueller is a former FBI chief and close friend and mentor to Comey.
- Reason No. 2: Corrupt unfair leaks. It continues the witch hunt as the Deep State heightens its assault to delegitimize Trump’s Presidency.
- Reason No. 3: Corrupt stacked deck: It should trouble all of us – Democrats, Independents and Republicans — that Mueller is assembling a team of lawyers with loyalty to the Democrats in general, and the Clintons (one actually defended the Clinton Foundation), in particular.
It’s been reported that of Department of Justice personnel who made political donations, a whopping 97 percent gave to Democrats.
Mueller’s “team” of investigators is no different:
- Anthony Weismann is a prosecutor who’s given a lot of money to Barack Obama and the Democrats.
- Aaron Zebley represented Justin Cooper, a Hillary aide and one of two people with access to Clinton’s clandestine and illegal email server. Cooper helped set it up.
- Perhaps the most questionable addition is Jeannie Rhee, who worked for then Attorney General Eric Holder. She gave $16,000 to the Democrats in the last nine years AND represented Hillary in the lawsuit over her emails. Rhee also defended the Clinton Foundation in a racketeering lawsuit!
This is an impartial investigation?
It smacks more of a partisan, Democratic hit squad.
The appointments raise questions about the team’s objectives and impartiality.
What if a Democrat was being investigated and the special counsel loaded his team with all GOP donors? The screaming from the left would be deafening.
What do you think?
