The mainstream media can’t stop gushing over Robert S. Mueller III for “sacrificially” leaving his prestigious $3.4 million partner job at a top law firm in order to take the lowly public servant position of investigating the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump worked with the Kremlin to seize the 2016 election. But as it turns out, a closer look at Mueller’s actions and who he’s hiring to help him fulfill his duties as special counsel suggest that he’s actually working on behalf of the Obamas and the Clintons to oust the current president and pave the way for a Trump defeat in 2020.
Pretty much the entire investigative team that Mueller has put together so far has direct financial ties either to Barack Obama or to Hillary Clinton. Mueller’s most recent hire, former Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney Greg Andres, is a perfect example of this. Andres worked in the White House during the Obama regime and served directly under former Attorney General Eric Holder, who is on the record as having lied under oath before the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee regarding the alleged improper confiscation of phone records.
The 16th lawyer that Mueller has hired thus far, Andres served at the DOJ between 2010 and 2012 and presided over the criminal division, where he oversaw the fraud unit and helped manage the program responsible for going after illegal foreign bribery. One of the specific cases that Andres oversaw was the prosecution of Texas financier Robert Allen Stanford, who was reportedly convicted in 2012 of operating an $8 billion Ponzi scheme. Interestingly enough, Andres is also married to Ronnie Abrams, a U.S. district judge in Manhattan who was nominated to the bench in 2011 by none other than Barack Obama.
Andres isn’t the only one, though. Mueller has hired several others with connections to Obama and Clinton, including Michael Dreeben, the DOJ’s deputy solicitor general. Dreeben reportedly donated $1,000 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate political action committee (PAC), known as “Friends of Hillary,” while she ran for public office in New York state. Another is Jeannie Rhee, who reportedly donated at least $5,400 to the Friends of Hillary PAC.
Oh, but there’s more. A man by the name of Andrew Weissman, the most senior lawyer on Mueller’s special counsel team, is currently occupying the top position within the DOJ’s fraud unit. Weissman served as the FBI’s general counsel and then-assistant director to Mueller at the time when Mueller was FBI director. Before he worked at either the FBI or the DOJ, Weissman donated on six separate occasions to PACs for Obama, totaling $4,700.
Or how about James Quarles, a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, who has donated more than 12 times to Democratic Party PACs since the late 1980s? Yeah, he’s on Mueller’s team, too – a who’s who of Democratic Party insiders who are just chomping at the bit to see the President impeached on some phony, drummed-up charge.
“Already, this investigation has become suspect,” stated Representative Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, about the need for Mueller to resign immediately due to these heinous conflicts of interest. “Reports have revealed at least four members of Mueller’s team on the Russia probe donated to support Hillary Clinton for President, as President Trump pointed out. These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality.”
“Until Mueller resigns, he will be in clear violation of the law, a reality that fundamentally undermines his role as Special Counsel and attending ability to execute the law.”
