White House is doing a "War Dance" over [among other things] Mueller's appointment of partisan anti-Trump assistants


Has the time come for Trump to dump Special Counsel Mueller ???


Since the appointment of Mueller was engineered by a long-time associate, former FBI Director Comey,  according to Comey's own testimony  ---  the appointment is now suspect  ---  and since Comey also is a likely witness to various matters in the investigation, Mueller's continuing as a "prosecutor" does appear to violate DOJ rules and guidelines


Records indicate that several of the Mueller-selected Special Counsel assistants are partisan anti-Trump donors




According to the "Gateway Pundit"  a well-know and heavily followed  internet website  ---  "Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to President Trump and the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign, took to Twitter Tuesday night to call out Special Counsel Robert Mueller for hiring lawyers who gave heavily to Democrats and opposed Trump’s candidacy, writing,  “FEC report: Mueller’s team includes big Democrat donors. Some maxed out, none wanted Trump to be POTUS.”  Mueller was appointed to investigate alleged, so far unproven, ties between the Trump campaign and Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election...."   (See  "WAR? Kellyanne Conway Calls Out Special Counsel Mueller for Hiring Anti-Trump, Democrat Donors"  by Kristin Taylor, 6/14/17,  The Gateway Pundit   [http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/06/war-kellyanne-conway-calls-special-counsel-mueller-hiring-anti-trump-democrat-donors/]).

The Kristin Taylor-Gateway Pundit article also note that   "....  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a Republican firebrand, was first to call out Mueller for his hires with a tweet early Monday morning. Gingrich had previously supported Mueller’s appointment but told Sean Hannity Tuesday night he changed his mind after fired FBI Director James Comey said he tried to orchestrate the hiring of a special counsel by leaking confidential memos to the press which resulted in the appointment of longtime Comey friend Mueller. Gingrich wrote, 'Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring.check fec reports. Time to rethink.'...”

Others have observed that former FBI Director Comey's testimony and his history with Mueller clearly showed a significant closeness between someone that is now intertwined as an actor in the case and the prosecutor  ---  that fact in itself violates DOJ rules and guidelines.

EARLIER REPORTS HAD IT THAT TRUMP WAS CONSIDERING SACKING MUELLER  ---  AND THE WHITE HOUSE WAS VERY SLOW WALKING IT BACK

There have been  many reports that presidential "friend" Chris Ruddy was telling everybody that President Trump was considering firing DOJ Special Counsel  Robert Mueller after a visit to the White House ( See e.g.,  "Trump's friend Christopher Ruddy says President considering firing Mueller"  by By Saba Hamedy, Jim Acosta and Kevin Liptak, 6/13/17,  CNN/  Politics   [http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/12/politics/ruddy-robert-mueller-white-house/index.html]).

THE LOOK OF A WHITE HOUSE WAR DANCE

With the recent disclosures about the questionable staffing decisions by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and with the even more recent remarks by White House insider  Kellyanne Conway;  it looks like presidential advisers are becoming increasingly and more openly critical of Mueller.  All of the goings-on of the last week at the White House are increasingly taking on the look of a "war dance" in advance of a formal presidential move against the Special Counsel.

IT'S TIME FOR TRUMP TO DUMP MUELLER  ---  AND IN THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT,   COMPLETELY DEEP-SIX ANY FURTHER NOTIONS OF A "SPECIAL COUNSEL"  FOR RUSSIA OR ANY OTHER PURPOSE

In spite of Congressional testimony to the contrary. as reported in the Washington Post  (See  “”Jeff Sessions testifies: Refuses to say whether he spoke to Trump about Comey’s handling of Russia investigation”  by       ---  “.... Earlier Tuesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appeared before lawmakers on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He responded to questions regarding comments Monday from Christopher Ruddy, the chief executive of Newsmax Media and a friend of Trump, that the president might fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Mueller was recently appointed to lead the investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 election....   Rosenstein said that if the president ordered him to fire Mueller, he would comply only if the request was 'lawful and appropriate.'...    Rosenstein, who has been on the job for six weeks, said only he could fire Mueller and only if he found good cause to do so. He described Mueller as operating independently from the Justice Department in his investigation...."  ---  there is clearly "good cause" to dismiss  this dour-faced clown Mueller.

We come here to talk about John Q's terrible palm card where he forgot to capitalize City Hall. We come here to talk about Bob Capano, the only cat in this race who will be on the ballot in November no matter what !!!!

UPDATE: THE "TRUMP NEEDS TO RID HIMSELF OF MUELLER AND ANY NOTIONS OF A SPECIAL COUNSEL ASAP" EDITION

LATEST NEWS ABOUT WHAT COMEY'S "SPECIAL COUNSEL" MUELLER IS DOING AND PLANNING IS AN IMMEDIATE THREAT TO TRUMP AND THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION --- IT IS ALSO THE BIGGEST THREAT TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AS A WHOLE IN MY LIFETIME

FIRE MUELLER --- CIRCLE THE WAGONS --- CRY HAVOC --- AND UNLEASH THE DOGS OF WAR AGAINST THE DEEP STATE AND ALL OF ITS SUPPORTERS, INCLUDING ANY AND ALL REPUBLICRATS

AMERICA MADE TRUMP PRESIDENT IN PART TO "DRAIN THE SWAMP" --- THIS IS WHAT DRAINING THE SWAMP LOOKS LIKE

Any questions ???

I remember Nixon firing Archibald Cox like it was yesterday. What never got out was Cox was a Kennedy family attorney. Does Mueller have an agenda?

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 6:39 PM"

"DOES MUELLER HAVE AN AGENDA ?" --- DOES A BEAR DO MOST OF HIS BUSINESS IN THE WOODS ?

LOOK AT MUELLER'S STAFFING DECISIONS..... LOOK AT HIS PERSONAL PEDIGREE.....

Part of the "DEEP STATE" involves >>> the cult of the prosecutor..... Anything, including a coup d'etat, can be disguised as a prosecution..... "Special Prosecutor" Mueller fits the mold of the long-serving impeccable pubic prosecutor. In his current gig, he only has to marshal enough evidence to >>> MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THERE ARE PROBABLE INDICTABLE OFFENSES <<< by the President and/or key members if the President's inner circle and/or family.

Mueller has been a nominal "Republican" and has been at or near the top of the U.S. governing establishment for a very, very long time, either as a prosecutor, a prosecutorial administrator, or the nation's top criminal investigator, almost all of it for Democrats and/or Bush-type Republicans (his instincts and actions during the "W" administration show that he is a GHW-Bush-type, and not a "W"-Bush-type).

A tip-off on Mueller's appointment to his current job is the quick acceptance and praise of the choice by U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, and the moral support given to Mueller by the likes of Preet Bharara.

As for the types of lawyers in his "Special Counsel" stable --- not only are there lots of hard core Democrats, there are lots of cut-throat prosecutors --- some with notorious appellate histories after spectacular trial successes.

Gingrich has this one right >>> Mueller hasn't been put there to clear President Trump of anything.....

You ask, "Does Mueller have an agenda ?" No, he looks like a big bear among some trees getting ready to squat and take a.....

Gale,
For a libertarian you seem to be unfazed by deputy AG Rosensteins warning to press about publishing false news. Not often you see Libertarianism and Fascism joining forces.

RESPONSE: THE "I'M NOT WOUND-UP AT ALL" EDITION

TWIMC

MUELLER IS A PROSECUTOR SENT OUT THERE TO DEFEND SOMEBODY OR SOMETHING --- AND IT SURE AIN'T PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND IT SURE AIN'T THE CONSTITUTION OF THESE UNITED STATES.....

SO FAR, IF DONALD TRUMP HAS SUCCEEDED IN ANYTHING IT IS THREATENING THE "DEEP STATE" --- YOU KNOW, THOSE WONDERFUL "CAREER PROFESSIONALS" THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BEYOND PUBLIC SCRUTINY, AND ANY REAL INQUIRY AND RESPONSIBILITY TO ANYBODY ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE

MUELLER HAS GREAT CREDENTIALS, BUT HE ALWAYS WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A "DEEP STATE" GUY

As for Rosenstein and the Libertarian-Fascist thing..... I am complex and sometimes I am unfazed because of my complexity.

Yes, complex; and sometimes pompous.

UPDATE: THE "WHY ISN'T 13 A LUCKY NUMBER" EDITION

CNN REPORT HAS IT THAT SPEC COUNSEL ROB MUELLER HAS ALREADY HIRED THIRTEEN (13), COUNT 'EM 13, LAWYERS --- AND THAT HE WANTS TO HIRE MORE FOR HIS TEAM

DOESN'T THIS SPENDTHRIFT NEED SOME CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT ???

Even if this guy has an "unlimited budget" --- at this rate, he will exceed it.

What we need now is a Congressional Investigation of Mueller.
