DOJ Appoints Special Counsel Former FBI Director Robert Mueller for Russia Probe
ISN’T THIS AMAZING, SOMETHING YOU NEVER SAW DEMOCRATS DUE UNDER OBAMA EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS SCANDAL AFTER SCANDAL AFTER SCANDAL …
After a death by a thousand Democrat, MSM and anti-Trump cuts, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as the special counsel to investigate the allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and so-called rumors of collusion with the Trump campaign. Mueller is considered an impartial and fair choice as he was appointed FBI Director by President George W. Bush in 2001 and served an extra two years past his ten year term during the Obama administration. Rosenstein said in a statement, that his decision to go forth with an Independent counsel was not that there was a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted, but because of the unique circumstances and the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command. Hmm, something you never heard the politicized DOJ say under Obama.
The United States Department of Justice has announced that a special counsel has been appointed to investigate Russian interference into last year’s presidential election and links or coordination with the campaign of President Donald Trump.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was assigned by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and related matters.”
In a statement, Rosenstein said, “My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”
“I accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability,” said Mueller in a statement.
Mueller will have 60 days to put together a budget for resources to conduct the investigation and that budget must be approved by Rosenstein. Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously recused himself from all matters related to the presidential campaign.
“Special Counsel Mueller will have all appropriate resources to conduct a thorough and complete investigation, and I am confident that he will follow the facts, apply the law and reach a just result,” said Rosenstein in the statement.
Just curious, will this mean the the LEFT will stop their Trump witch hunt now that they got what they wanted in an independent counsel? Not a chance. But what will Democrats and the LEFT do when the investigation turns up nothing? And say right before an election?

The Democrats may have what they were clamoring for in order to play their resistance game to hamper the Trump administration. However, this position has a wide latitude and it may provide a lot of information on the Democrats too.
Be careful what you ask for as it may reveal things about you as well.
It’s all ridiculous nonsense because the Democrats lost the election, it doesn’t change the results of the election. They lost the Presidency, the Senate and Congress. Now we need a special budget to pursue this merry-go-round and waste unnecessary monies. What we care about are all the previous issues that matter and are suppose to be under investigation during the obama administration. We want answers and results not a nonsense distraction that’s been given attention and a means to delay what should be underway or even resolved.
It’s no longer a Democratic party, it’s now known to be the Demoncratic party. The party of Demons and evil who’s leaders are vile, criminal, destructive and dangerous to our survival as a country. They shouldn’t be recognized or accepted anymore as part of our society that can hold any political offices, there are no seats for you in the House. We’ll make sure of that in 2018. The party needs to be destroyed.
