Trump attacks Mueller ‘witch hunt’ as WH source calls investigation ‘out of control’
Trump also accused Mueller’s investigators of being “the most biased group of people [with] the biggest conflicts of interest” and said Attorney General Jeff Sessions “made a terrible mistake for the country” when he recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation last year.
A source close to the White House told Fox News’ John Roberts that the raid showed that the Mueller investigation “is out of control” and was a “demonstration of bad faith” on the part of the special counsel.
“What in the name of God is Mueller doing?” the source told Roberts. “He wants to take down the President.”
This guy Mueller is one step closer to getting his ass hand to him by the President. Raiding the offices of Trump’s lawyer goes beyond the pale. In 18 months Mueller hasn’t uncovered squat. On the other hand he has wasted upwards of $20,000,000 dollars looking for a crime to fit the bill.
In February, Fox News reported that most of the 17 confirmed attorneys on Mueller’s team were registered Democrats or made Democratic political donations.
A source close to the Trump legal team told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge that the raid on Cohen was “aggressive” and designed to “squeeze the president.” The source, who has knowledge of talks between Mueller and the president’s legal team, added that the raid “puts a fork in” the prospect of Trump agreeing to be interviewed by the special counsel.
Still, the existence of a referral from Mueller’s office to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney suggests that the matter isn’t related to Russia.
Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller is required to consult with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate. Rosenstein then would determine whether to allow Mueller to proceed or to assign the matter to another U.S. attorney or another part of the Justice Department.
Inside the FBI are hundreds of Hillary-Obama-Democrat operatives, they are guilty of committing the most egregious of all crimes; sedition – an inside coup d’etat. Peter Strozk and Lisa Page coordinated with Comey and McCabe to use a fake dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton to get an illegal FISA warrant to tap the Trump Tower. This swamp is deep and it must be drained. Fire Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller. Give Sessions his walking papers; bring in Chris Christie to shoot the fish in the barrel.
