BREAKING: Mueller Asked to Resign

If Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks has anything to do with it, special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation may be coming to an abrupt end.

According to Fox News, Franks said Monday that Mueller must resign from his position as special counsel due to his close friendship with former FBI Director James Comey, whose firing this spring by President Donald Trump was the chief impetus for Mueller’s appointment by the Department of Justice.

“Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties,” Franks said in a statement, according to The Daily Caller.

Mueller’s relationship with Comey wasn’t the only reason Franks had issues with the special counsel’s investigation, either. Franks, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Mueller’s decision to pack the investigative team with individuals who had donated to the Democrats and/or Hillary Clinton indicated Mueller wasn’t conducting a neutral probe.

“Already, this investigation has become suspect — reports have revealed at least four members of Mueller’s team on the Russia probe donated to support Hillary Clinton for president, as President Trump pointed out. These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality,” Franks said.

    By law the Special Counsel was only authorized to investigate the issue of Russian collusion. When that hoax cratered the SC office is supposed to be disbanded but Mueller then embarked on a “fishing expedition” for anything he could get on Trump. Then he loaded up the team with so many conflicts-of-interest that he should already be disbarred. The rule of law has been abandoned in this country.

    If Mueller had any Ethics, Morality, or a decent mother, he never would have accepted the position. So don’t expect honesty NOW.

      We need to start looking at the mother. It’s proven fact that infants develop strong immune systems and sense of self worth when the mother physically holds and comforts her offspring.
      If Climate Change is our responsibility, then the burdensome cost of health care, physical and mental, is the responsibility of Mothers.
      Your comment inspired this “insight”.

      Also, he wouldn’t have organized the 9/11 coverup – but he did – so we knew exactly what kind of person he is.

    I’d ask for Mueller to be hung – crimes of 9/11…..

    But that’s just me

      And me too!. Exactly right.

    • Stop Bush and Clinton says:

      I’d prefer putting him to good use for the rest of his natural life – e.g. forcing him to clean public toilets or pick up dog poop from parks (with all income generated to be distributed to his victims).
