Special Counsel Robert Mueller Filling Staff With Democrat Donors

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate potential Russkie conspiracies involving the Trump campaign, is packing his staff to the brim with Democratic donors.

From The Hill:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) questioned early Monday special counsel Robert Mueller's ability to remain fair and impartial in his investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election. 

"Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring.check [Federal Election Commission] reports. Time to rethink," Gingrich tweeted about Mueller, a former director of the FBI. 

Gingrich, an informal adviser to the president, also voiced his concerns about Mueller on Sunday. He accused former FBI Director James Comey of manipulating the Russia probe in order to effectuate the appointment of a special counsel, and he called on Congress to dismiss the special counsel altogether.  

"I think Congress should now intervene and they should abolish the independent counsel, because Comey makes so clear that it's the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the FBI director leaking to The New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation. It's very sick," Gingrich told radio host John Catsimatidis."It's very clear that Comey hates Trump," he added.

[...]At least four members of Mueller's special counsel team have donated to Democratic presidential campaigns and organizations. 

Justice Department Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben donated in 2008 to a political action committee for then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama as well as a PAC for Hillary Clinton in 2006.

Jeannie Rhee, who previously served as a deputy assistant attorney general and now works as a partner in the investigations practice at WilmerHale, donated to the Democratic National Committee as well as campaign PACs Obama in 2008 and 2011, and Clinton's campaign in 2015 and 2016.

James Quarles, who worked as an assistant special prosecutor on the Watergate Special Prosecution Force and who also works as an attorney at WilmerHale, has a long record of donating to Democratic groups starting in 1987 for the PAC Dukakis for President. In 2016, he donated to Clinton's PAC Hillary for America.

And Andrew Weissman, who oversees fraud cases at the Justice Department, donated six times to PACs for Obama's presidential campaign as well as the DNC in 2006.
Why not appoint Maxine Waters while you're at it?

As I noted before, Rod Rosenstein stabbed Trump in the back by appointing this special counsel, which now has an unlimited amount of time and taxpayer money to manufacture a case out of nothing.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who has plenty of experience manufacturing cases out of nothing and oversaw the massive expansion of domestic spying on Americans post-Patriot Act, can now dig into Trump and his associates' entire histories, then prosecute them, if he so pleases, for not returning a book to the library 30 years ago.

What we're witnessing here is a deep state coup and it appears most of the crooked Republican establishment is happily going along with it.
