Any firing in relationship to Robert Mueller’s position as Special Counsel should be the concern of the Department of Justice and the Congress. They should determine whether Mueller should remain as Special Counsel because of the many conflicts that exist with the appointment. Any concerns should point to Mueller recusing or extricating himself from the investigation, and at this point, President Trump should not be part of the exit process. Mueller should have never been appointed in the first place and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should not have recused himself from the original investigations.
Conflicts involving Mueller’s assignment begin with his long friendship and association with former FBI Director James Comey, which immediately created a conflict of interest and clash with laws that govern such investigations. Mueller has also hired a number of high-powered lawyers and Democrats, no Republicans as of this time, to help in handling the investigation, one of them being a Clinton Foundation operative. Mueller is far removed from being independent and has proven so as a Democrat donor and Comey crony. It is difficult to say whether he will add any level of truth to the investigation.
Additionally, Mueller’s appointment as special counsel is subject to the special counsel statute which says that no one can be appointed if there isn’t a legitimate criminal inquiry. No underlying crime has been committed. The law (28 CFR 600.7) clearly states that even the appearance of a conflict is enough for disqualification, which entails competing interests or loyalties, both of which have been proven to be true concerning Mueller.
Perhaps President Trump should fire Mueller, but that action would only serve to cause a firestorm on the left and allow Trump to be further accused and manipulated by the left, so he is obviously wary of taking the bait that would further trap him. President Trump would be better off turning the tables on the left through prosecutions of the corruption and criminal activities of the Obama administration. This would certainly be a way to turn away from the phony investigation and go after the real perpetrators of hate.
Though this never ending investigation only serves to impede the forward movement of government, Trump continues leading on with his agenda, and he has challenged the validity of the investigation and the charges that he obstructed justice by firing Comey. He suggested that it was just the latest attempts by the left to damage the presidency. As Trump recently said, “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story.”
Now it seems that those close to the investigation have divulged that Robert Mueller is presently interviewing intelligence officials to see whether Trump tried to influence or impede the Russian investigation of Michael Flynn.
Other issues of concern still resonate with Comey as he was at one time thought to be competent enough to handle any suspicious matters concerning Hillary Clinton and the infamous meeting of her husband and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. It appears that Comey was more than willing to take orders from Lynch regarding any investigations of Hillary Clinton, but decides to create deflection with a mere suggestion or wish from President Trump concerning General Flynn.
At this point, if a firing is going to occur, it should be left to another body. Trump will simply watch and wait as the investigation unravels, more false claims are brought out by Mueller and his investigators, or another counsel is brought in to muddy the waters and further stonewall progress. The country is suffering because of the whole debacle and the wrong people are being investigated and until it is squarely proven that there was no collusion on the part of Trump or those close to him, the witch hunt will continue and defending the indefensible will rule the day.
