Special Counsel Robert Mueller is officially on the radar of every single conservative in America… or so you would think. After his investigation into the allegations that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election turned into a full on “witch hunt” (as President Trump has stated), how could anyone defend the guy? Well, four Republican senators have just jumped ship and abandoned the Republican Party, Donald Trump, & The US Constitution, all to defend Mueller’s above the law witch hunt.
It has been more than a year since Mueller began his investigation into Trump, and exactly zero evidence of Trump colluding with Russia (whatever that even means, as ‘collusion’ is not even a crime) has been found or at least presented to the public. President Trump has even been told that he is not the subject of the investigation, and Mueller has been forced to stoop so low as to raid Trump’s personal lawyer’s office for things that have nothing to do with collusion at all. Mueller is clearly trying to take down President Trump any way he can. There is no way around it. It has become evident.
It would seem obvious that Congressional Republicans would uphold and defend the Constitution. You would think that they would be familiar with what the Constitution says. The Constitution allows Trump the right to fire Mueller. They should know that much. Clearly these four Republicans don’t care about the Constitution, as they have just voted to protect Mueller from Trump. Passing such a bill would essentially put Mueller above the President of The United States, basically making him ‘King’ of America, unaccountable to the Executive.
BizPac Review reported that four Republican Senators sided with 10 Democrat senators to ensure that the proposal succeeds. Known anti-Trump Arizona Senator Jeff Flake was in on it along with GOP South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley.
With a 14-7 vote in favor, the measure passed. Dissensions came from GOP senators after the mainstream media hyped up the possibility of President Trump firing Mueller. President Trump has only ever stated, “We’ll see what happens” in reference to the possibility of firing Mueller.
Americanewsdaily.org reports, “The seven Republicans who voted against the bill are: Sens. Orrin Hatch (Utah), Mike Lee (Utah), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Ben Sasse (Neb.), Ted Cruz (Texas) and John Kennedy (La.). The bill is sponsored by Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., Cory Booker, D-N.J., Graham and Tillis, and would codify Department of Justice regulations that say only a senior DOJ official can fire Mueller or another special counsel, according to The Hill.”
Why doesn’t it surprise me that Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake are behind this?
It is so unlikely that Trump will fire Mueller in the first place. It’s just another headache that he doesn’t need to deal with.
From Fox News:
It would be unconstitutional for Congress to prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
I’m not saying that firing Mueller would be a wise move politically, nor am I urging the president to do so. That’s another issue.
But under the Constitution, it is beyond the power of Congress to limit or impose conditions on any president’s authority to remove a political appointee within the Justice Department or any other department in the executive branch.
It doesn’t matter if you feel that Trump is the best President ever or if you feel that he is the worst President ever, he still has the right to fire Mueller, according to the Constitution.
Mueller has gone far beyond the scope of the Trump/Russia investigation. He has begun to arbitrarily target people who align themselves with Trump. Graham, Flake, Tillis, and all the rest of the anti-Trump scum in Washington are set on enforcing their agenda, no matter if they have to subvert the Constitution to do so or not.
