TGR: Special Council Mueller is on a roll. He’s doing what he can to discredit the Trump administration, and claim the Russians were directly involved with the Trump campaign. There is zero proof this ever happened.
News broke this week that Mueller might have illegally been pointed to his position. If this is true, then there could be something BIG brewing in the Trump admin.
Former Trump Foreign Policy Advisor George Papadopoulos Pled Guilty making him the first to be beheaded by Mueller
A former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government.
In court records unsealed on Monday, the FBI said George Papadopoulos “falsely described his interactions with a certain foreign contact who discussed ‘dirt’ related to emails” concerning Hillary Clinton.
In addition, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.
Paul Manafort is next. This isn’t good news for the Trump Administration, but we can only hope, and pray things work out in the end, and we re-elect President Trump in 2020.
Law Professor Douglas Kmiec of Pepperdine University School of Law claims Mueller might have been appointed ILLEGALLY! This would be HUGE for the Trump administration. Kmiec,
worked under both Ronald Reagan, and George Bush. His argument is an interesting one. Kmiec has a few valid points that could prove Mueller isn’t even fit for the job he represents.
1) Mueller has no oversight
Kmiec contends that Mueller is not being properly supervised because of the “flimsy” way in which he was appointed. After all, Comey said during Congressional testimony that he had leaked a memo about Trump trying to squash the investigation in order to get a special counsel appointment. On top of that, he says, it doesn’t appear Mueller has any direct supervision. Sessions recused himself, and under the same theory, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has effectively recused himself because of his involvement in the process by writing a memo to Trump recommending James Comey be fired. So who exactly is Mueller accountable to? If he doesn’t have a boss, then the Constitution requires that he be confirmed by the Senate like all other executive appointees.
2) President’s presumption of guilt
There is also an issue of a presumption of guilt. Most legal experts agree that a sitting president cannot be indicted. The manner by which the special prosecutor was appointed skirts awfully close to an indictment, in the eyes of the law, Kmiec contends.
The special counsel has not formally indicted Trump. But given Comey’s hair-trigger assumption that Trump was up to no good, and the way the special counsel process defines the president as a wrongdoer before any wrong is established, the investigation itself is arguably equivalent to an unconstitutional indictment.
3) There appears to be little “specific and credible” information to open an investigation in the first place
This one requires a little backstory. In 1988, the U.S. Supreme Court took up a case in which Assistant Attorney General Ted Olson challenged the constitutionality of Independent Counsel Act. Ultimately, the court found it did not conflict with the separation of powers. However, the law expired in 1999, and the new regulations have never faced rigorous legal scrutiny, and if they did, they probably wouldn’t meet constitutional muster.
“Under the expired law, independent counsels were appointed by a special three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, but only after the attorney general conducted a preliminary investigation based on ‘specific and credible’ information about alleged wrongdoing by the president,” Kmiec wrote. Kmiec contends that none of these careful steps exist in the current regulations, and “there are no signs that in the wake of Sessions’ recusal, a constitutionally sufficient process triggered the Mueller appointment.”
The fact is this, Robert Muller is out for blood. He has the establishment behind him 110%, and they’re out to bring down President Trump.
Trump is nothing more than a HUGE brick wall in the way of their globalist agenda. Recent comments from former President George W. Bush proved the name of the game is to bring down Trump.
