A member of the House Judiciary Committee has had enough of the willful blindness of the left and the complicit and cowardly enablers in the mainstream establishment and on the right have displayed when it comes to the illegal activities of nothing-special special counsel Robert Mueller. Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) has issued a statement demanding things change.
Rep Franks is calling on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign from his position, one that he never should have accepted in the first place, considering his close personal relationship with James Comey. Clearly it wasn’t dumb luck that led Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to select Comey’s buddy so there is cause to investigate that relationship as well.
Rep Franks points out that the law government the special counsel prohibits him from serving if he has a “conflict of interest,” which includes “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution.” Comey is a central witness in the witch hunt and there is a long history of friendship between him and Mueller.
Franks cited a Fox News report from May which portrayed Mueller and Comey as “longtime allies.” Mueller was the FBI Director when Comey was the Deputy Attorney General in 2003. Franks said in a statement, “Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties.”
If Mueller were interested in maintaining integrity he’d never have taken the appointment in the first place. He’s going to have to be forced into possessing integrity and he’s going to ignore those concerns for as long as he is able to get away with it.
Franks said, “Those who worked under them have attested he and Jim Comey possess a close friendship, and they have delivered on-the-record statements effusing praise of one another. No one knows Mr. Mueller’s true intentions, but neither can anyone dispute that he now clearly appears to be a partisan arbiter of justice.”
He added, “Accordingly, the law is also explicitly clear: he must step down based on this conflict of interest.”
It’s clear to everyone except the crooked Democrats running the witch hunt, Rep Franks. They’re not listening, you’re going to have to grab them by the ears and get right in their face. Start with Bobble Head Adam Schiff, and hold on tight.
