Now that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller (James Comey good friend) has impaneled a Grand Jury giving him the power of the government with search warrants and subpoenas, it is time to look at the tainted witch hunt team Mueller has assembled.
Dreeben is a Dem donor meaning he is a Trump hater:
A fourth lawyer on Mueller’s staff, Michael Dreeben, donated $1,000 to Clinton 2006 and $250 to Obama in both 2007 and 2008. (Robert Mueller Stocks Staff with Democrat Donors; By Brendan Kirby; Lifezette.com; Update 6/13/17 10:30 AM)
Dreeben donated $1,000 dollars to Hillary Clinton’s Senate political action committee (PAC), Friends of Hillary, while she ran for public office in New York. Dreeben did so while he served as the deputy solicitor general at the Justice Department. (SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TEAM IS FULL OF HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS; By BRIAN ANDERSON; DownTrend.com; 6/12/17)

… Rhee represented Hillary Clinton in a 2015 lawsuit that sought access to her private emails. She also represented the Clinton Foundation in a 2015 racketeering lawsuit.
… She maxed out her donations both in 2015 and 2016 to Clinton’s presidential campaign, giving a total of $5,400. (Meet the all-star team of lawyers Robert Mueller has assembled for the Trump-Russia investigation; By Michelle Mark and Madeleine Sheehan Perkins; Business Insider; 8/1/17 8:31 PM)
One of the hires, Jeannie Rhee, also worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation and helped persuade a federal judge to block a conservative activist’s attempts to force Bill and Hillary Clinton to answer questions under oath about operations of the family-run charity.
Campaign-finance reports show that Rhee gave Clinton the maximum contributions of $2,700 in 2015 and again last year to support her presidential campaign. She also donated $2,300 to Obama in 2008 and $2,500 in 2011. While still at the Justice Department, she gave $250 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp.

According to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, Quarles had made significant donations to Democratic candidates, including former President Barack Obama and Clinton. Most recently, in October 2016, Quarles donated $2,700 to Clinton’s presidential campaign. Quarles also donated over $7,000 to Obama over the last decade. Quarles did, however, donate $2,500 to former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, in 2015. (Mueller probe: Meet the lawyers who gave $$ to Hillary, now investigating team Trump; By Brooke Singman; Fox News; 7/24/17)
Starting in 1987, Quarles donated to Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis’s presidential PAC, Dukakis for President. Since then, he has also contributed in 1999 to Sen. Al Gore’s run for the presidency, then-Sen. John Kerry’s (D-Mass.) presidential bid in 2005, Obama’s presidential PAC in 2008 and 2012, and Clinton’s presidential pac Hillary for America in 2016.

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.
Andres, 50, also has another connection to the Democratic Party as his wife, Ronnie Abrams, is a federal judge that was nominated by President Barack Obama in 2011. (Mueller Hires Yet Another Democratic Donor; By Alex Pfeiffer; Daily Caller; 8/1/17 7:36 PM)
Goldstein contributed a combined $3,300 to Obama’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012. (Mueller probe: Meet the lawyers who gave $$ to Hillary, now investigating team Trump; By Brooke Singman; Fox News; 7/24/17)
During his [i.e. Goldstein] time in the Manhattan attorney’s office, Goldstein served under Bharara, who up until March served as the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan. Bharara was controversially fired by the Trump administration, along with 46 other Obama-era U.S. attorneys, earlier this year.

In an attempt at fair and balanced, there are others on the Mueller legal team that have donated to the Dems but only to the tune of hundreds rather than thousands of dollars. I can’t believe any Dem will do a fair investigation into a Trump/Russia collusion crime any more than I can believe a Conservative (yet not necessarily a RINO GOP) would do a fair investigation of either Russian collusion with Trump or the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Conservatives would look for Trump exoneration or Crooked Clinton conviction evidence. I know my view is skewed, but it is my opinion to connect the Crooked Clintons/Obama and their minions to crimes more than there will ever be credible evidence against the Trump organization.
The hugest problem of a conflict of interest is in Special Prosecutor Mueller himself due to a close friendship to Comey. This is the kind of friendship that convinces me Mueller will do all in his power to make sure former FBI buddy Comey is not snared in any legal violations EVEN if Mueller has to fabricate evidence against President Trump.
Check out these thoughts from Abe Hamilton:
“I think the president has sound grounds to disqualify Mueller for a host of reasons,” says Hamilton,” the least of which is his personal relationship with James Comey.”
There is no doubt, adds Hamilton, that at the center of the ongoing investigation is Comey himself.
“Brothers in arms: The long friendship between Mueller and Comey,” reads the headline of a May story at the liberal Washington Post.
Meanwhile, fact-checking website Snopes insists the claim they are “best friends” is “mostly false” despite quotes from a former assistant FBI director who said they are close and suggested a conflict of interest is obvious.
The law codifying the special counsel would require Mueller to recuse himself, Hamilton advises, because his friendship with Comey “would likely induce partiality.”
“At a minimum,” Hamilton tells OneNewsNow, “the president has the legal grounds to remove him based on that alone.”
Beyond that relationship, he further points out, is a conflict of interest with Rod Rosenstein, who hired Mueller. (Attorney: Oh, yeah, Mueller definitely has a conflict; By Chad Groening; One News Now; 8/2/17)
Mueller was involved in Crooked Hillary’s (then Secretary of State) Russia/American-Uranium collusion:
A top national attorney in consultation with U.S. attorneys confirmed to Big League Politics that special counsel Robert Mueller and members of his team can be formally disbarred for waging the “Russia” case against President Donald Trump. Mueller and his associates have glaring conflicts of interest in the case concerning Trump.
Mueller’s team is tainted not only by partisan political donations and activities, but by direct relationships with former clients like Hillary Clinton, who is integrally involved in most of the possible evidence in this case. These conflicts clearly violate American Bar Association guidelines.
Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians in selling them our uranium. Clinton handpicked Mueller to give a sample of uranium to the Russians, and Mueller subsequently flew to Moscow, according to publicly available documents. (CONFIRMED: Mueller Team Can Be Disbarred For Clinton Conflicts In Trump Case; By Patrick Howley; Big League Politics; 7/23/17 5:07 am EST)
Those on the Mueller witch hunt legal team that have Dem Party agenda connections and/or connection to the Crooked Clintons have a huge conflict of interest according Big League Politics:
The American Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Standards for the Prosecution Function make clear that Mueller’s team is in violation of standards, according to the top national attorney. Here are the relevant sections (emphasis added):
“A prosecutor should not use other improper considerations, such as partisan or political or personal considerations, in exercising prosecutorial discretion. A prosecutor should strive to eliminate implicit biases, and act to mitigate any improper bias or prejudice when credibly informed that it exists within the scope of the prosecutor’s authority.
(b) A prosecutor’s office should be proactive in efforts to detect, investigate, and eliminate improper biases, with particular attention to historically persistent biases like race, in all of its work. A prosecutor’s office should regularly assess the potential for biased or unfairly disparate impacts of its policies on communities within the prosecutor’s jurisdiction, and eliminate those impacts that cannot be properly justified.”
“Standard 3-1.7 Conflicts of Interest
(a) The prosecutor should know and abide by the ethical rules regarding conflicts of interest that apply in the jurisdiction, and be sensitive to facts that may raise conflict issues. When a conflict requiring recusal exists and is non-waivable, or informed consent has not been obtained, the prosecutor should recuse from further participation in the matter. The office should not go forward until a non-conflicted prosecutor, or an adequate waiver, is in place…”
“(c) The prosecutor should not participate in a matter in which the prosecutor previously participated, personally and substantially, as a non-prosecutor, unless the appropriate government office, and when necessary a former client, gives informed consent confirmed in writing.
(d) The prosecutor should not be involved in the prosecution of a former client. A prosecutor who has formerly represented a client should not use information obtained from that representation to the disadvantage of the former client.”
“(f) The prosecutor should not permit the prosecutor’s professional judgment or obligations to be affected by the prosecutor’s personal, political, financial, professional, business, property, or other interests or relationships. A prosecutor should not allow interests in personal advancement or aggrandizement to affect judgments regarding what is in the best interests of justice in any case.”
“g) The prosecutor should disclose to appropriate supervisory personnel any facts or interests that could reasonably be viewed as raising a potential conflict of interest. If it is determined that the prosecutor should nevertheless continue to act in the matter, the prosecutor and supervisors should consider whether any disclosure to a court or defense counsel should be made, and make such disclosure if appropriate.”
“(j) The prosecutor should promptly report to a supervisor all but the most obviously frivolous misconduct allegations made, publicly or privately, against the prosecutor. If a supervisor or judge initially determines that an allegation is serious enough to warrant official investigation, reasonable measures, including possible recusal, should be instituted to ensure that the prosecution function is fairly and effectively carried out. A mere allegation of misconduct is not a sufficient basis for prosecutorial recusal, and should not deter a prosecutor from attending to the prosecutor’s duties.” (Ibid.)
AND how can American voters ignore the conflict of interest between Mueller and Comey:
Former FBI Director Jim Comey “closely coordinated” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller before his planned testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his interactions with President Trump.
Fox News reported a source close to Comey said the former FBI director consulted with Mueller about how to approach Thursday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. (Comey ‘closely coordinated’ with Mueller on Trump testimony: Report; By Josh Siegel; Washington Examiner; 6/7/17 5:05 PM)
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Comey/Mueller collusion:
Rep. Louie Gohmert on Tuesday said the only collusion that should be investigated is between the “dirty” James Comey and Robert Mueller, who “conspired to violate the law” in order to “blackmail” the president.
“This thing stinks to high heaven,” Gohmert said. “Comey is dirty, Mueller is dirty.”
“Comey testified he ran things by Mueller before he testified, also ran things by other people in the Justice Department when he did the memo. There is so much collusion in the Justice Department.”
Further, there was obviously no obstruction of justice or Comey would have acted long before he was fired. Instead, Gohmert believes Comey’s testimony last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee further proves collusion.
“If (Comey) and the others at the Justice Department with whom he colluded had felt like there had been an obstruction of justice, then they conspired to violate the law by together holding that back so they could blackmail (Trump) later,” Gohmert said. (Rep. Gohmert: ‘Dirty’ Comey, Mueller Colluded to ‘Blackmail’ Trump; By Mark Swanson; Newsmax; 6/13/17 01:13 PM)
I realize the Dems will go ballistic if Mueller is fired. BUT you can expect the Trump base who elected him President will go medieval if some kind of loose change is tossed at Trump that is absolutely irrelevant to a Trump campaign colluding with Russia.
The lesser of two evils: Fire Mueller!
Then shut the Dems up by prosecuting real crimes like Crooked Hillary, her minions, Deep State Obama anti-government treason and Obama’s minions.
