As w are hopefully dwindling into the late stages of Robert Mueller’s bizarre investigation into a number of liberal fairy tales, times are getting tough for the Special Counsel.
Mueller has been at the receiving end of a heap of Presidential criticism in recent months, and enduring all of the collateral complaining that comes with that distinction. Of course, this was to be expected; his entire reason for being anywhere near Washington D.C. is predicated on a lie uttered by the cacophonous charlatan known as Hillary Clinton when it became all too apparent that she would be losing the 2016 election.
And so Mueller toils away in whatever conference center he’s holed up in, with his team of anti-Trump lawyers and stewards, dropping nonsense process charges on the fringes of Trump’s inner circle…all the while being openly mocked by the legal community surrounding him.
Just this week a federal judge openly lambasted Mueller and team for their incredibly blatant bias.
A federal judge on Friday criticized the criminal case brought against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, asserting that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team wanted to bring down the president, according to reports.
During a tense hearing for Manafort, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III rebuked Mueller’s team. He questioned whether Mueller was overstepping his prosecutorial power to look into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Ellis said, Reuters reported.
He continued: “It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants.”
Trending: Science is Settled
Now, other legal experts and political pundits are jumping on the anti-Mueller train, very succinctly chopping the Special Counsel off at the knees, figuratively speaking.
Former Reagan Justice department attorney and radio talk show host Mark Levin argued this week that previous Justice Department legal opinion memos make it unequivocally clear that a sitting president cannot be indicted for a crime.
And, just to be clear…
The conclusion in both was instances was the same: “Grand juries and prosecutors cannot supplant Congress. The only way to remove a sitting president is through the impeachment process, not through the indictment process.”
“This is not me, this is the Department of Justice speaking,” Levin told host Sean Hannity, while holding up a copy of one of the DOJ legal opinion memos. “Special prosecutors cannot supplant Congress.”
The conservative commentator said Trump’s legal team should use the memos to directly question Mueller as to why he thinks he can threaten to subpoena the president.
This isn’t the sort of examination that Mueller and his team were hoping to hear, but the American people sure are thrilled with Levin’s conclusion.
