As time goes by President Trump is learning who his friends are and so are the American people. Undoubtedly there are more, but nineteen of them have acted in his interest and that of America in attempting to rein in the rogue “investigation of everything based upon evidence of nothing,” the Mueller Russia witch hunt.
On Friday, nineteen members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to the chairmen of both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees asking for hearings into the Mueller probe. They cited its lack of oversight, ever-expanding scope and conflicts of interest as just some of the serious problems that justify such an action.
The letter, sent to Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), seeks congressional hearings to keep special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of ravenous anti-Trump, political hack lawyers accountable. Some might argue to make them accountable or remind them of and restricting them to their supposed mission would be a more accurate, albeit less politically friendly way of putting it. They wrote:
“Every nominee for nominee for United States Attorney must be confirmed by the Senate, a process that brings to the forefront any conflicts of interest, potential biases, or questionable past conduct. However, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller lll and his team of lawyers, who are arguably just as empowered – if not more so – than any United States Attorney, have afforded Congress and the public no such opportunity.
This team has sweeping authority and an open-ended mission, yet they are allowed to operate largely in secret, selected by and ultimately accountable to only one person: Mr. Mueller himself. With numerous reports emerging almost every day on possible conflicts of interest and allegations of political bias, it would be in the interest of both the public and the Special Counsel team to speak to the American people through their elected representatives in Congress.
Accordingly, we respectfully request that one or both of the Judiciary Committees immediately convene a public and open hearing or series of hearings to bring Mr. Mueller and his team out of the shadows and into the public square. While we agree that specific questions about the ongoing investigation cannot and should not be addressed in such a hearing, we strongly believe the American people deserve information and accountability regarding the potential expenses incurred by Mr. Mueller and the selection of his Special Counsel team. – They are, after all, paying for it.
We are confident that you will take this request into serious consideration.”
Rep Brian Babin (TX), who initiated the letter, was joined by fellow Republican signatories Rep Jody Hice (GA), Rep Bob Gibbs (OH), Rep Doug LaMalfa (CA), Rep Ralph Norman (SC), Rep Bill Flores (TX), Rep Bill Posey (FL), Rep Randy Weber (TX), Rep Kay Granger (TX), Rep Trent Franks (AZ), Rep Andy Harris (MD), Rep Alex Mooney (WV), Rep Steve King (IA), Rep Duncan Hunter (CA), Rep Scott DesJarlais (TN), Rep Joe Wilson (SC), Rep Neal Dunn, (FL), Rep Ralph Abraham (LA), and Rep Dave Brat (VA).
While Congressional hearings are notoriously ineffective and lacking in substance, they can set a tone and are often reflective of the mood of the governing body. The arrogant impunity with which this witch hunt has been engaged, from the Sessions recusal to the Rosenstein appointment of the criminal good old boys clique’s operative, Mueller, to the unbridled stampede towards something, anything before the American people can intervene, this has been a clear effort to topple or at a minimum divert this President from his mission to restore our government to the American people.
The letter may not result in hearings, it may only put Mueller and his band of empowered thugs on notice that if they succeed in taking action outside of their contorted mandate, they will likely be challenged and not have the support of Congress.
They likely do not have the support of the true Representatives, the non-sellouts in Congress already. The problem is, there’s a lot of them who are establishment tools, bought and paid for, in addition to the Democrats, who will go along with anything that keeps President Trump from fulfilling his mandate.
That, along with deep state operatives inside the DOJ, the feckless Jeff Sessions at Attorney General and the treasonous rat Rod Rosenstein at Deputy Attorney General, are what has kept Mueller in power and untouchable to this point.
It’s time for all of that to change and this letter may help to force action in that direction.
