Despite virtually zero evidence being presented, Robert Mueller’s anti-Trump Russia investigation continues to dredge on.
It has been rumored for months that Trump has been close to firing him.
And one newly revealed Democrat connection could be enough to destroy every bit of Mueller’s credibility, and take down his entire investigation.
Republican Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) created an uproar when he attacked Robert Mueller Democrat donors that are on his team helping investigate the so-called connected between Donald Trump and Russia.
Democrats immediately scrambled trying to deflect and prove the investigation is unbiased.
But the facts don’t lie.
And as it turns out the majority of the lawyers on Robert Mueller’s team have donated over $65,000 in total to national Democrat candidates and organizations.
Only one of Mueller’s lawyers has donated to Republicans, but he is also a major donor to Democrat causes.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“The Mueller probe has been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election since May 2017, including whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied allegations of collusion and has even referred to the Russia investigation as a “taxpayer funded charade.”
Republicans like Duffy have voiced more measured concerns about the Mueller team’s ability to be impartial.
“Do I believe there’s any evidence of Russia collusion between Donald Trump campaign and Russia? No. But should he be concerned? Yes. When you bring in Democrat donors, Hillary Clinton donors, into the Bob Mueller investigation, yeah, you should be concerned,” Duffy said on Fox Business. “So, I hope that Mueller does this the right way, but we should all be concerned based on the people who are inside helping Mueller run the investigation.”
Duffy has made similar statements over the past year about the potential bias of “Democrat donors” on the probe.”Atto
Rep. Duffy, and many other concerned Americans contend that it is virtually impossible for the investigation to be fair when the majority of the lawyers investigating the claims financially supported President Trump’s opponent.
Having Democrat donors on the legal team investigating the President is a huge conflict of interest.
And some of the conflicts of interest go even further.
Attorney Jeannie Rhee donated the maximum of $2,700 in 2015 and 2016 to Hillary Clinton.
Rhee also represented the Clinton foundation in 2015 to protect Hillary Clinton, who was at the center of a racketeering lawsuit related to her tenure as Secretary of State.
DOJ Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann has donated thousands of dollars to the Democratic National Committee, and was in attendance of Hillary Clinton’s election night party.
He also sent a letter to then-Attorney General Sally Yates, thanking her for refusing to enforce Trump’s controversial, but legal, travel ban.
When asked about these conflicts of interest, the Special Counsel’s office cited the Civil Service Reform Act, which prohibits using some personal political affiliations into account when hiring and taking other personal actions with regards to career attorneys.
I wonder if that same argument would be used if the cards were reversed, and it was a legal team of Republican donors investigating Hillary Clinton.
Do you think the Russia investigation into President Trump has been fair and unbiased?
