The tables are turning against Mueller – his personal connections are revealed more and more every day. As that happens, Republicans are beginning to ask that he resign.
He is Comey’s predecessor from 2001-2013. As Fox News reported, he has a quite close relationship with Comey. CNN has documented their long-running history. Comey referred to Mueller as one of the finest people he has ever met. According to one AP report on Comey and Mueller, they “served closely alongside each other in the Bush administration Justice Department” and “have spoken warmly of each other”.
Comey admitted that he orchestrated the leaking of memos written by him before being fired for the purpose of getting a special counsel appointed. The special counsel turned out to be Robert Mueller.
“This investigation has become suspect up to now. According to some reports, at least four members of Mueller’s team on the Russia probe donated to support Hillary Clinton for President. These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality. Mueller has to resign, or he will be in clear violation of the law. That would fundamentally undermine him being a Special Counsel and attending his ability to execute the law.”
The president Trump is so frustrated with the Russia investigation, that he allegedly has considered firing Mueller. In an interview form two months ago, Trump stated that Mueller was “such good friends with Comey, which is bothersome.”
