GOP Congressman says Special Counsel Mueller Must “Resign” because of “Conflict of Interests”

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) is a no-nonsense conservative from the West and he can always be counted on to call things like he sees them.

The current evidence for Franks’ clear thinking was his recent observation that special counsel Robert Mueller is duty-bound to resign his post as special counsel due to conflicts of interest.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Here’s what Franks said to the Daily Caller:

“Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties. Those who worked under them have attested he and Jim Comey possess a close friendship, and they have delivered on-the-record statements effusing praise of one another. No one knows Mr. Mueller’s true intentions, but neither can anyone dispute that he now clearly appears to be a partisan arbiter of justice. Accordingly, the law is also explicitly clear: he must step down based on this conflict of interest.”

Franks knows what he’s talking about. He’s a long time member of the House Judiciary committee and he understands that federal law demands that any investigator with a conflict of interest in a case they’re investigating must resign. Federal law defines a conflict of interest as, “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution.” Robert Mueller just happens to be an old friend of former FBI Director James Comey, and Comey happens to be central to Mueller’s current investigation.

Mueller was Comey’s predecessor from 2001-2013 and, as reported by Fox News, has a well-documented close relationship with Comey. Other outlets including CNN have documented Comey and Mueller’s long-running history. Comey once called Mueller “one of the finest people I’ve ever met.” An AP report on Comey and Mueller said they “served closely alongside each other in the Bush administration Justice Department” and “have spoken warmly of each other,” although it is disputed that the two are close friends.

Not only that, but Franks has reason to believe that Mueller’s investigation is getting… politically partisan.

“Already, this investigation has become suspect – reports have revealed at least four members of Mueller’s team on the Russia probe donated to support Hillary Clinton for President, as President Trump pointed out. These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality. Until Mueller resigns, he will be in clear violation of the law, a reality that fundamentally undermines his role as Special Counsel and attending ability to execute the law.”

Franks is right, many of the team members Mueller has brought in to deal with the investigation into Russia have deep political ties on the left which makes them immediately suspect in any investigation that could undermine the Trump administration. If half the nation can’t trust the people assigned to the investigation, how can the investigation ever successfully be resolved?

It can’t.

The time has come for special counsel Mueller to resign his post and turn the reins of the investigation over to someone with fewer conflicts of interest and no political axe to grind.
