Biased Probe of allegations against President Trump colluding with Russia.
It is a witch hunt, but the plus side is that this biased probe is turning up things on the Left that they would like to keep hidden. A twist of Fate, poetic justice or just Karma? Mueller’s investigation always has been about removing Trump from office.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is under fire.
His investigative team is a hotbed of anti-Trump hatred.
Now the next shoe is about to drop and it’s devastating news.
When word broke that Mueller was forced to reassign FBI agent Peter Strzok because he fired off anti-Trump text messages, concerned Americans wondered why Mueller concealed this information for months.
Sara Carter – the investigative journalist who broke the story that Strzok oversaw the Bureau’s interview with Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn – claimed there are even more members of Mueller’s team that share anti-Trump hatred.
As days go on, the Mueller probe is being exposed as nothing more than a partisan fishing expedition for members of the swamp to try and take out Trump.
Mueller – the dictionary definition of a swamp creature – has strayed far from his original mandate.
Mueller’s friendship with Comey is the Original Sin of the tainted Special Counsel inquisition.
On May 17, 2017, Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel, after the firing of FBI Director James Comey amid accusations by Comey, leaked to the NY Times, that Comey had resisted Trump’s desire to “let go” of the investigation of Michael Flynn:
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
It later emerged that the leak came from Comey himself, by providing at least one memo Comey prepared at and then purloined from the FBI, to a Columbia University law professor for the purpose of leaking to the Times. Comey admitted that he leaked the memo to create a public uproar to create public pressure for a Special Counsel:
COMEY: I asked — the president tweeted on Friday after I got fired that I better hope there’s not tapes. I woke up in the middle of the night on Monday night because it didn’t dawn on me originally, that there might be corroboration for our conversation. There might a tape. My judgment was, I need to get that out into the public square. I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. Didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons. I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. I asked a close friend to do it.
Comey got his wish, and Mueller was appointed.
But Mueller’s appointment was tainted from the start because he had a longtime close friendship with Comey. I wrote that this friendship should have been a disqualifies since Comey was a key potential witness.
On June 11, 2017, I wrote that Robert Mueller should step aside: Friends shouldn’t be investigating friends:
Whether they were just close professional friends, or consider themselves personally friendly, the fact is that they are not at arms length. This relationship, at least as reported, appears to be much more than the routine interactions you might expect two law enforcement officers to have had in the regular course of business.
Something doesn’t seem right here. Comey manipulated the system into getting his friend appointed Special Counsel, and now that friend will be investigating matters in which Comey is a key witness. More than that, Comey’s own actions in leaking government property raise legal issues as to whether Comey himself violated the law.
Even assuming Mueller is able to separate his past with Comey from his present investigation, that relationship damages the whole purpose of having a Special Counsel who is completely independent in fact and appearance.
In a truly independent investigation, friends shouldn’t be investigating friends. Mueller should step aside to remove the taint on the Special Counsel investigation created by friend and witness James Comey.
In the past couple of weeks there have been several developments that cast doubt on whether the Special Counsel investigation has morphed beyond it’s mandate, which was supposed to be Russian interference in the election. With the guilty plea of Michael Flynn to one count of lying about late December 2016 conversations with the Russians, it is clear that Mueller is probing the post-election transition. Which raises the question, Why is Robert Mueller even investigating the presidential transition?
Andy McCarthy makes a persuasive case that Mueller’s investigation always has been about removing Trump from office by providing the fodder for impeachment. It Is Now an Obstruction Investigation – Which means that it’s an impeachment investigation:
The smoke is clearing from an explosive Mueller investigation weekend of charges, chattering, and tweets. Before the next aftershock, it might be helpful to make three points about where things stand. In ascending order of importance, they are:
1.) There is a great deal of misinformation in the commentariat about how prosecutors build cases.
2.) For all practical purposes, the collusion probe is over. While the “counterintelligence” cover will continue to be exploited so that no jurisdictional limits are placed on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, this is now an obstruction investigation.
3.) That means it is, as it has always been, an impeachment investigation.
