Not so long ago, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was overseeing a bizarre, conspiratorial investigation into the democratic theory that President Trump was a Russian double agent.
At least that’s the impression we got from the wild conspiracy theories and absurdist remarks being made by a number of progressive pundits, following in the footsteps of disparaged and disappointed former First Lady Hillary Clinton. The entire, unfathomable farce continued to evolve for some time, spreading its bizarre tentacles into the media, the DNC, Wikileaks, and more.
Today, very few outside of Mueller’s staff could tell you exactly what the Special Counsel is actually investigating. Paul Manafort has been charged, but in response to actions that occurred long before his time with the Trump campaign. Many believe that democratic powerhouses the Podesta brothers could be next, demonstrating the extremely wide net that Mueller has cast on his fishing expedition.
Given that we’ve seen absolutely zero pieces of evidence that the President could be working hand in hand with the Kremlin, as the left proposes, Americans are growing tired of Mueller’s antics and have begun publicly asking the former FBI Director to recuse himself. Now, members of Congress are jumping on board with that sentiment, drafting legislation to remove Mueller altogether.
“A group of conservative Republican lawmakers introduced a resolution on Friday calling for Robert Mueller to recuse himself as the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 US election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign team colluded with Moscow.
“Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Louie Gohmert of Texas say Mueller should step down because he was the FBI director in 2010 when US government agencies approved the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian energy company, to a Russian nuclear-energy firm. The deal required approval because Uranium One had mining operations in the US.
“Gaetz says the issue is that Mueller’s FBI had found evidence of criminal activity that may have been relevant to the deal but did not bring any charges, and that Mueller therefore should recuse himself from the current investigation.
“‘These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised,’ Gaetz said in a statement. ‘He must step down immediately.'”
Mueller’s ties to several precious administrations have come under fire during his time as Special Counsel of an investigation that seems nowhere closer to proving any Presidential wrongdoing…even after all this time.
Concurrently, new revelations regarding Hillary Clinton’s not-so-subtle takeover of the supposedly impartial DNC during the 2016 election is fomenting calls for an intervention by the Department of Justice; not only from the American people, but from the President himself who today tweeted a plea to the DOJ to make an example of the democratic diva.
