Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been on the record stating that he planned to step down from his Department of Justice post once the Mueller investigation was resolved. Rosenstein, who has overseen and defended the Mueller witch hunt, recently announced that he would leave the DOJ once Pres. Donald J. Trump’s U.S. Attorney General nominee William Barr was confirmed by the Senate.
Barr is expected to take the reins as the country’s top DOJ official following a party-line vote in the Senate by the end of January. With Rosenstein no longer overseeing the Special Counsel who has gone out of his way to target Trump associates for things unrelated to so-called “Russian Collusion” or interference in the 2016 elections, Washington insiders strongly believe the Mueller hoax will promptly wind down, one way or another.
The politically-motivated Russia probe cost taxpayers upwards of $25.2 million through September of 2018, and the final quarter of last year will likely bring the total waste of revenue to $30 million and counting. To date, Mueller and his team of Democrats have yet to charge a single person with collusion, and those who are the subject of social media and other influence peddling are living in Russia far from a U.S. courtroom.
Without a Russian or Americans who colluded, Mueller has targeted former Trump campaign associates over allegations of things that occurred years before the sitting president launched his 2016 bid. The biased, fake news media has used the Mueller hoax as a tool to insinuate Trump did not fairly and thoroughly defeat their candidate, Hillary Clinton. Nothing could be further from the truth.
With Barr taking over the DOJ and overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the conventional wisdom is that it will quickly be consummated and put to bed. Barr has been a long-standing critic of the investigation which has exceeded its Russia mandate in areas that duplicate potential crimes handed by agencies such as the IRS, FBI and regional attorney generals. The presumed incoming attorney general has stated that the Mueller witch hunt was “fatally misconceived.”
“As I understand it, his theory is premised on a novel and legally insurmountable reading of the law,” Barr wrote. “Moreover, in my view, if credited by the Justice Department, it would have grave consequences far beyond the immediate confines of this case and would do lasting damage to the Presidency and the administration of law within the Executive Branch.”
Barr has also gone on the record stating that Special Counsel Mueller has acted in a “grossly irresponsible” fashion that could have “potentially disastrous implications.”
“Mueller should not be permitted to demand the President submit to interrogation about alleged obstruction,” Barr reported stated.
The incoming A.G. has previous experience, having served under President George W. Bush and was working in private practice when he made these and the following critical statements about the runaway Mueller probe:
“I know you will agree, that if a DOJ investigation is going to take down a democratically-elected President, it is imperative to the health of our system and to our national cohesion that any claim of wrongdoing is solidly based on evidence of a real crime — not a debatable one,” Barr stated. “It is time to travel well-worn paths; not to veer into novel, unsettled or contested areas of law; and not to indulge the fancies by overly-zealous prosecutors.”
In recent weeks, Trump Administration lawyers led by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani have emphatically stated that the president has indulged Mueller and his angry Democrats long enough. The White House has provided sufficient and voluntary answers to the Special Counsel, and it is time to bring this farce to a conclusion. The White House has also increased its legal team by as many as 17 new attorneys to defend the expected onslaught of Democrat-led House investigations designed to bog down the Trump Administration from further implementing its America First policies.
Although Barr has expressed that he has no plans to interfere with the Mueller witch hunt once he is confirmed, his criticisms coupled with Rosenstein’s exit and the White House cutting off discussions all point to a swift end to a massive waste of taxpayer dollars.
