The Russia investigation has entered a new phase.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s decisions are raising red flags.
And the probe has taken a frightening turn that exposes Trump and his team to serious legal jeopardy.
It’s becoming clearer every day Mueller’s investigation is hopelessly biased against Trump and doesn’t exist to find facts, but to find guilt.
He’s stocking his team of investigators with rabidly partisan Democrats – including two who financially contributed to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign.
Four top lawyers hired by Mueller have contributed tens of thousands of dollars over the years to the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates, including former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump’s 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.
One of the hires, Jeannie Rhee, also worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation and helped persuade a federal judge to block a conservative activist’s attempts to force Bill and Hillary Clinton to answer questions under oath about operations of the family-run charity.
Campaign-finance reports show that Rhee gave Clinton the maximum contributions of $2,700 in 2015 and again last year to support her presidential campaign. She also donated $2,300 to Obama in 2008 and $2,500 in 2011. While still at the Justice Department, she gave $250 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp.
Rhee also has contributed to a trio of Democratic senators: Mark Udall of New Mexico, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.
James Quarles, who worked on the Watergate investigation as a young prosecutor, has an even longer history of supporting Democratic politicians. He gave $1,300 to Obama in 2007 and $2,300 in 2008. He also gave $2,700 to Clinton last year…
… Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department lawyer who now is at Jenner & Block, contributed $2,300 to Obama in 2008 and $2,000 to the DNC Services Corp. in 2006. Weissmann served as chief of the Justice Department’s criminal fraud section and worked on the Enron fraud case.
A fourth lawyer on Mueller’s staff, Michael Dreeben, donated $1,000 to Clinton 2006 and $250 to Obama in both 2007 and 2008. He was deputy solicitor general and has appeared many times before the Supreme Court.”
Newt Gingrich first raised these objections on Twitter.
Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring.check fec reports. Time to rethink.

Mueller’s objectivity has been called into question.
He is close friends with former FBI Director Jim Comey.
Comey testified that he arranged the leak of a memo describing an encounter with Trump so a special counsel would be appointed.
He manipulated events that ended up with a close friend of his investigating a President whom Comey called a liar and clearly harbors ill feelings toward.
That, piled on top of Mueller’s decision to hire hard charging partisan Democrats to investigate Trump, has fatally compromised the investigation.
It’s exactly what Donald Trump said it was – a witch hunt.
