Reports surfaced this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is outfitting his team with some of the top lawyers in the country, a move that would be expected of someone who has a monumental investigation ahead of him – an investigation that must be independent of the Justice Department in as many ways as possible. However, the particular people that Mueller has chosen to surround himself with has drawn questions about Mueller’s ability to stay objective.
In an interview with Fox News Sunday, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich – who once praised Mueller as the right choice to lead the investigation – said the new hires raised a number of red flags.
“They’re setting up to go after Trump,” he said. “This is going to be a witch hunt.”
One of Mueller’s hires is Jeannie Rhee, who has a history of donating to and working for Democrat Party causes. Rhee, in fact, worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation and even argued to a federal judge that Bill and Hillary should not have to answer questions about the operations of the global scam they call a charity. Rhee donated the maximum individual amounts to the Clinton campaign in 2015 and 2016, leaving little doubt about where her political loyalties lie.
Other hires – Andrew Weismann, James Quarrels, and Michael Dreeben – also have histories of donating to Democrat politicians.
And then there’s Mueller himself, who has been described as James Comey’s “brother-in-arms.” We’re supposed to believe that he’s going to be impartial in this investigation? No way. He is only in the position because the DOJ appointed him special counsel…after Trump fired his best bud Comey. And Comey himself testified that he leaked his memos to the New York Times in the hopes that a special counsel would be appointed. How can the lead investigator follow the facts when he is so clearly swamped in personal and political conflicts of interest?
If the mainstream media would do its damn job instead of carrying water for the Democratic Party, the American people would see this for the transparent sham of an investigation that it is. Or maybe they wouldn’t. People are going to see what they want to see. Unfortunately, that’s going to give the Democrats the opportunity they need to keep this sideshow circus going for months – even years – on end. And in the meantime, Trump’s agenda – the agenda the people voted for and want to see implemented – will be frozen.
History will regard what the Democrats are doing as an unprecedented black mark on democracy.
