A Fair Investigation?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 14, 2017

         THE SO-CALLED “INDEPENDENT COUNSEL” LOOKING INTO RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN LAST YEAR’S ELECTION MAY NOT BE SO INDEPENDENT AFTER ALL.

         FORMER SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH HAS CHALLENGED THE FAIRNESS OF THE INVESTIGATION BECAUSE OF THE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS ROBERT MUELLER HAS HIRED.

         GINGRICH APPEARED ON LAURA INGRAHAM’S RADIO PROGRAM AFTER WHICH DETAILS WERE PUBLISHED ON HER WEBSITE. FOUR TOP LAWYERS HIRED BY MUELLER HAVE CONTRIBUTED TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES, INCLUDING BARACK OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON.

         ONE OF THOSE HIRED BY MUELLER, JEANNIE RHEE, ALSO WORKED AS A LAWYER FOR THE CLINTON FOUNDATION AND HELPED PERSUADE A FEDERAL JUDGE TO BLOCK AN ATTEMPT BY A CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST TO FORCE BILL AND HILLARY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS UNDER OATH ABOUT THEIR FAMILY CHARITY.

         PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN FIRE MUELLER, BUT THAT COULD TURN INTO A POLITICAL DISASTER. STILL, THIS INVESTIGATION COULD BE TAINTED GIVEN SOME OF THE PEOPLE MUELLER IS HIRING. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
