The recent public resignation speech by Special Counsel Robert Mueller sent the Washington Swamp into an uproar of partisan finger-pointing. Despite Mueller’s subtle use of language that he sides with anti-Trump forces, the career Washington insider was forced to admit he found no Russian collusion by President Donald Trump or his campaign officials during the 2016 election. However, his ambiguous parting words have both sides of the aisle in a fervor.
Esteemed constitutional law expert and Fox News contributor Alan Dershowitz took Mueller to task for grossly exceeding his investigative mandate and playing politics in his speech. Mueller stated that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.” But the former special counsel had already stated that Department of Justice regulations and the U.S. Constitution prohibit bringing charges against any sitting president. The legal check and balance on the president rests with Congress’ impeachment powers.
“He went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump. By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings,” Dershowitz stated.
“Until today, I have defended Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan. I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached,” Dershowitz continued. “But I have now changed my mind. By putting his thumb, indeed his elbow, on the scale of justice in favor of impeachment based on obstruction of justice, Mueller has revealed his partisan bias. He also has distorted the critical role of a prosecutor in our justice system.”
The role of the justice department is to investigate and bring a charge only in the event sufficient evidence is uncovered. The Mueller report did not find any evidence of wrongdoing by the Trump Campaign. If Mueller and his “12 Angry Democrats” had found evidence of a crime, it would have been detailed in the report for Congress to begin an impeachment trial. His subtly biased insinuations prove the Russia probe was nothing but a “witch hunt” all along.
“I think Mueller is a true never-Trumper,” the president said. “I helped me get elected. Russia had nothing to do with it at all.”
Radical Democrats have pounced on the nuances of Mueller’s words to stoke impeachment hearings.
“Although Department of Justice policy prevented the Special Counsel from bringing criminal charges against the President, the Special Counsel has clearly demonstrated that President Trump is lying about the Special Counsel’s findings, lying about the testimony of key witnesses in the Special Counsel’s report, and is lying in saying that the Special Counsel found no obstruction and no collusion,” House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said. “Given that Special Counsel Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the president, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump — and we will do so. No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.”
Although Rep. Nadler praised Mueller for his exit statement, the special counsel had thumbed his nose directly at the Democrat who threatened to subpoena his testimony. Nadler ranks among the most extreme anti-Trump opposition forces in the U.S. House, right alongside Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the roundly discredited California Rep. Adam Schiff. In terms of Trump Derangement Syndrome, they have widely been recognized as an unholy trio of liberal insanity.
Inflaming liberal tempers even more, the president has assumed a position of power since the Mueller report was released. He and those in the White House inner circle have literally dared Democrats to attempt impeachment.
“Game on, baby. As a supporter of Donald Trump, they want to bring impeachment proceedings? Let’s go. The sooner the better,” former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reportedly said. “Because the American people don’t want this president to be impeached, the Senate will never remove this president from office based upon the facts that we have right now, so if they want to exercise such awful partisanship, remember what happened to the Republicans when we did that to Bill Clinton.”
