There are a few honorable men left in Congress who have the courage to do what should be automatic and support their President. One of them is Republican Rep Brian Babin of Texas. Babin is circulating a letter among his colleagues seeking support for his request that special counsel Robert Mueller appear publicly in one or more congressional hearings.
Among issues that may be addressed are the many conflicts of interest of Mueller in the “investigation” as well as his methods of selecting his Inquisitors, who somehow just happened to be overwhelmingly anti-Trump, pro Clinton and politically active.
Babin’s letter was sent to every congressman on Thursday and invites them to cosign a letter that he will send to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.
He wrote, “Every nominee for United States Attorney must be confirmed by the Senate, a process that brings to the forefront any concerns regarding the nominee’s ability to hold their position in a decent and impartial manner. However, as Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team of lawyers investigate our very own president, we as a nation wait in the dark with very little information about those given this great authority.”
He wrote, there are “serious concerns” as to his selection of attorneys who have a bias towards Democrats that is demonstrated by their having donated “generously” to Democrats and even to Hillary Clinton.” He added, “In addition, this investigation has the potential to drag on for months, or even years, and cost millions in taxpayer dollars.”
Babin says it is his objective to have either or both of the judiciary committees “bring Mr. Mueller and his team out of the shadows” to answer questions about the “potential expenses incurred by Mr. Mueller, the scope of his investigation and the selection of his special council team.”
Unfortunately, no congressmen have yet signed onto the letter, which Babin will hold open for support until September 6th. Maybe their constituents can let them know it’s important to them during the August recess.
Babin spokesman Jimmy Milstead said, “We don’t see why there shouldn’t be very strong support.” In an honest Congress representing the people there would be overwhelming support. We’ll see just how honest this congress wants to pretend it is and perhaps gather some insight into who they’re representing by the names of those who sign up.

The first question asked of Mueller is upon what basis he is excluding himself from the statutory requirement that he remove himself based upon his personal relationship with the central figure, James Comey. At that point it should be game over. If it’s not, he’s building the case to force his removal with every question that follows.
