There are serious concerns on Capitol Hill this week that Robert Mueller may be overstepping the purported scope of his investigation into election tampering by the Russian government, and Rudy Giuliani is having none of it.
The leftist media has been all over the story as well, shoring up support for the investigation through semantically-savvy reporting by the likes of Jon Oliver, who has been one of the America’s leading opponents of the Trump administration from the get-go, not ever giving the President a chance to succeed before signaling to his multitude of millennial followers that the man is evil incarnate and should be removed from office.
His latest tirade against the leader of the free world was even predicated on the idea that the rest of the media has been reading the Mueller appointment incorrectly. That’s right folks, we’ve skipped over the last several months’ worth of actual investigation, and we’re now redefining what we think Mueller is supposed to be doing. That’s how desperate the left is becoming.
Now, in the face of a report by the Investigator General that has caused serious doubts about the efficacy of the FBI to surface, part of the President’s legal team is calling for the Mueller farce to be suspended, at least until We The People can be convinced that the corruption and collusion within the agency is handled properly.
Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, called Thursday for the suspension of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in light of the release of a watchdog report that criticized key figures in the Hillary Clinton email probe.Trending:
Giuliani, who appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity,” said the U.S. Department of Justice should dismiss all those in the “phony Trump investigation” and bring in FBI agents from the New York office to probe former FBI Director James Comey, special counsel Lisa Page and FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok.
“I believe that (Deputy Attorney General) Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions have a chance to redeem themselves and that chance comes about tomorrow,” he said. “It doesn’t go beyond tomorrow.”
Trump has been warned by both Republicans and Democrats about potential ramifications for firing Mueller or Rosenstein. Politico reported that Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in April that the firings would likely lead to calls for a Trump impeachment.
The nearly 600-page report, which was compiled by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, was released Thursday and was critical of Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation. The report did not second-guess Comey’s conclusion that Clinton should not have been prosecuted.
After all, once all of this political grandstanding is done and over with, this is our nation. It doesn’t belong to the Trump’s, Giuliani’s, Obama’s, Clinton’s, or Mueller’s of the world. It belongs to us, and if we say that the Mueller investigation has no merit, who are our public servants to argue with that?
