Let’s put our heads together and ask what the consequences of terminating Mueller would be.
1. Mueller is a close personal friend of fired FBI Director (leaker) James Comey. With Mueller on the job, it’s impossible to believe that an aggressive investigation into Comey is possible. Comey damn well needs to be investigated, however.
2. Trump will be compared to Nixon. The firestorm of outrage from Democrats and the media will be yuuuuuuuge. Many RINOs will join in–people like John McCain and Lindsay Graham. Firing Mueller would make it even less likely that Trump’s agenda will go forward as his enemies harp on his Nixonian qualities (or whatever drivel they can make up about Trump = Nixon.)
3. An investigation into the Clintons, Obama, Loretta Lynch, and other Obama administration officials would be more likely with Mueller gone. Comey admitted Clinton broke the law, but ended the investigation. Comey admitted that Trump is not under investigation, but continued the investigation in spite of it. Odd. And what about the murder of DNC operative Seth Rich?
4. Mueller has been staffing up with Democrats out to get Trump. It’s clear that he intends his investigation to last for at least four years and probably eight. The leaks of falsehoods that would probably be coming out of Team Mueller in the future can be nipped in the bud.
5. There are smart legal experts who will take the possibility of Mueller’s termination and give us a clearer picture of what it means over the next 24 hours.
Mueller is a Deep State plant whose mission it is to destroy the Trump presidency. He was FBI Director when the 9/11 attacks occurred and he led the FBI to the politically correct conclusions.
WASHINGTON — A friend of the president says Donald Trump is considering “terminating” special counsel Robert Mueller.
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy tells Judy Woodruff of “PBS NewsHour”: “I think he’s considering perhaps terminating the special counsel. I think he’s weighing that option.”
The White House did not immediately respond to questions about Ruddy’s claims.
Under current Justice Department regulations, such a firing would have to be done by Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ deputy, Rod Rosenstein, not the president– though those regulations could theoretically be set aside.
Mueller is leading the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and potential ties between Moscow and Trump’s presidential campaign. Sessions has recused himself from the investigation.
In the interest of fairness, I point out that The Conservative Treehouse favored the Mueller appointment.
Newt Gingrich has come out with the opinion that Mueller will not conduct a fair investigation. Read more at Salon.
