More and more calls are coming for Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller to resign his post.  Many of those calls are citing significant conflicts of interest and surprisingly some of those calls for resignation are not just coming from supporters of President Donald Trump.

The most recent call comes from Freedom Caucus member and a member of the Judiciary Committee – Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ).  He cites Mueller’s close relationship with fired former FBI Director James Comey and labels him as “a partisan arbiter of justice.”

Mueller, a former FBI director himself, was tasked in May with continuing the bureau’s investigation into supposed Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.  This investigation has been deemed a witch hunt by many on both sides of the aisle as months and months of investigation have turned up literally nothing.  The probe includes an investigation into President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and supposed inappropriate contacts with Russian officials.

The FBI says there is no evidence the Russians affected the outcome. The office of the Director of National Intelligence — which governs all 17 U.S. spy agencies — says there is no evidence. Department of Homeland Security says there is no evidence. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch says there is no evidence. Even Obama admits there is no evidence that Russian hacking cost the Democrats the election. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, not exactly known for being friendly toward Trump or other Republicans, was especially adamant in his rejection of the claims.


In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Franks states –

“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. 

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.” 

In addition to his close relationship with Comey, Franks also cited the histories of the lawyers who Mueller has assembled on his team to assist him in his “investigation” as yet another reason why Mueller must resign. He has also stacked his team with attorneys that have given significant donations to the Democratic National Committee.  One of which even did work for the Clinton Foundation.
With each passing day, it’s looking increasingly like the only people qualified to serve on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigative team are lawyers who have either directly worked for and/or contributed to the campaigns of Barack Obama and/or Hillary Clinton.
The three attorneys were recruited from the Washington, D.C., law firm of WilmerHale to assist Mueller’s probe of Russia’s interference in the presidential election and potential collusion with Trump’s political campaign. Mueller worked at WilmerHale after retiring as director of the FBI. The biggest donor among the lawyers was James Quarles, who donated more than $30,000 to Democratic candidates and causes while in private practice, the records show. A second lawyer, Andrew Weissmann, gave Barack Obama’s campaign for president $2,300 in 2008, also while he was at a private law firm. Lawyer Jeannie Rhee donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton and $7,300 to President Obama. Both of those donations were made while she was in private practice. But in 2004, when she was a Justice Department lawyer, she donated $250 to the Democratic National Committee, according to records compiled by In a story headlined “Swamp Fights Back,” Breitbart News reported that in 2004 Rhee also did legal work for the Clinton Foundation. Most federal prosecutors do not donate money to politicians while in government service as a matter of course because it shows bias.
Mueller’s latest hire is Greg Andres, a former DOJ attorney who was appointed during the Obama administration and served under Attorney General Eric Holder. He is the 16th attorney to be added to the team and was most recently working as a white-collar criminal defense lawyer with New York law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell.
He also happens to be married to Ronnie Abrams, a U.S. district judge in Manhattan nominated to the bench in 2011 by Democratic President Barack Obama. A search of federal election records shows that Andres has donated at least a total of $3700 to federal Democratic candidates, including $2700 to New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in March 2017.
Yet, here we are still investigating the Trump administration for so-called Russian ties when existing it seems a host of Washington officials is “in bed” with the Russians.  Project much?
