SWAMP: Mueller Now Investigating Trump’s Firing of James Comey

Shut it down.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey and other actions he has taken as President because, Russia.

Mueller asked the White House for documents relating to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey as well as the firing of former NatSec Advisor General Flynn, reported the New York Times.

Mueller is also seeking records on a May meeting President Trump had in the Oval Office with Russian government officials where Trump reportedly called Comey a ‘nutjob’ and said firing the FBI Director relieved “great pressure” on him.

WHO CARES.

In the last few weeks, Mueller sent the White House a document detailing THIRTEEN different areas that his team of 17 liberal hack lawyers want more information on. Per the New York Times:

In recent weeks, Mr. Mueller’s office sent a document to the White House that detailed 13 different areas that investigators want more information about. Since then, administration lawyers have been scouring White House emails and asking officials whether they have other documents or notes that may pertain to Mr. Mueller’s requests.

Mueller also requested documents on Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya.

So Hillary Clinton can meet with Ukrainian government officials to gather dirt on Trump’s camp, mishandle classified information and use her position as Secretary of State to peddle influence and power through the Clinton Foundation and there is no Special Counsel investigating her. Amazing.

Ty Cobb, an attorney for Trump told the New York Times, “We can’t comment on any specific requests being made or our conversations with the special counsel.’’

FOX News analyst Gregg Jarrett previously stated: Mueller is Hopelessly Conflicted in Violating the Law, President Should DEMAND He Resign.

If true, this development makes the argument even more compelling that Mueller cannot serve as special counsel. He has an egregious conflict of interest.

The special counsel statute specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the investigation or prosecution.” The language is mandatory. He “shall” disqualify himself. Comey is substantially involved in the case. Indeed, he is the central witness.

The two men and former colleagues have long been friends, allies and partners. Agents have quipped that they were joined at the hip while at the Department of Justice and the FBI. They have a mentor-protégé relationship. The likelihood of prejudice and favoritism is glaring and severe.

So, it is incomprehensible that the man who is a close friend of the star witness against the president… will now determine whether the president committed a prosecutable crime in his dealings with Mueller’s good friend.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Special Counsel Robert Mueller just hired another Obama-Hillary crony to investigate President Trump.

This is the 17th lawyer to join the pack of wolves investigating Trump.

Greg Andres was the 16th lawyer to be added to Mueller’s team. He worked under Eric ‘Fast N’ Furious’ Holder from 2010 to 2012. No bias here though. This is a completely fair investigation as Paul Ryan says.

Here is a look at the 15 other attorneys who will investigate Trump.

    — Worked under Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein in Maryland.
  • Zainab Ahmad, a top national security prosecutor on detail from U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.
  • Michael Dreeben, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General, described by former colleagues as one of the brightest criminal law experts of the past two generations.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton has repeatedly called for the Mueller investigation to be shut down as it is unsupervised and unconstitutional.

Trump is an innocent man and he is being investigated by almost 20 left-wing lawyers for a crime that has yet to be named.
