Robert Mueller flanks DOJ

Timothy Birdnow

The "Russian Collusion" investigation by Robert Mueller is turning into a Constitutional quagmire. Fox Business reports:

"In May, Rosenstein penned a memo criticizing then-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the investigation in Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. That memo was then cited by the Trump administration for reasoning behind Comey’s firing later that month.

To further complicate the investigation, Rosenstein’s position places him as the overseer of the Justice Department’s investigation into the Trump team’s alleged ties to Russia after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

"We’re faced with a constitutional mess over at the Justice Department, where Rosenstein is being interviewed by the guy he’s supposed to be supervising in theory,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told FOX Business’ Lou Dobbs on "Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

If Sessions refuses to "un-recuse” himself from the investigation, President Donald Trump should exercise his authority under the Constitution to remove Mueller from the special counselor, he said.

Earlier this week, CNN reported that U.S. investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort under special court orders, both before and after the November presidential election."

End excerpt.

Rosenstein is now in a position where HE cannot fire Mueller, thus essentially neutralizing him. I wonder if this wasn't Mueller's plan in investigating Rosenstein all along. Trump would face catastrophic political fallout if he sacked Mueller and with Sessions out it falls to a man who is now under investigation. That's a cute little trick there.

Jeff Sessions should appoint a prosecutor to investigate the prosecutor - as part of an investigation into Comey and collusion with Hillary. In warfare if you don't have overwhelming numbers you do not launch a direct assault but rather you flank - which is what Mueller is trying to do here. It's time Sessions and Trump flank Mr. Mueller and his army of Democratic operatives, and to do that he should be put under the microscope himself.

When will the Republicans learn how to do this stuff? You can understand why Trump isn't doing it, but Sessions should know to make this move. The longer they let Mueller run wild the worse it will be.
