See if you notice a "tell" here:
House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) is calling on Robert Mueller, special counsel for the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation, to resign.
Franks claims Mueller is violating a law governing the special counsel that prohibits him from serving if he has a “conflict of interest,” which includes “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution.”
Franks cited a Fox News report from May that cast Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey as “longtime allies.” Mueller served as the FBI Director when Comey was the Deputy Attorney General in 2003. The Russia investigation has expanded to include possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia and the president’s decision to fire the FBI director.
“Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties,” Franks said in a statement.Did you catch the Fox "News" reference, that fount from which all evil political mischief flows -- "a Fox News report from May..."? That particular stupidity has been out there since May, so why the sudden elevation of it into a demand that Mueller resign? Was it perhaps this bat- shit signal from the shitgbbon just a few days ago:
It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2017
=Pant=pant= arf arf!= Good guard doggy, Trent!
Sensing the closing prosecutorial noose around Rump's fat neck, a wall of treasonous, dead- ender co- conspirators is beginning to form around the shitgibbon in the House and Senate. Not surprisingly, it includes Rep. Trent "Beans And" Franks (Teabag - AZ). Franks is one of the most dangerous loons in the House (and, that's a statement right there), having opined that African Americans were better off under slavery, proposing bills that foster Islamophobia, and being a virulent opponent of a woman's right to choose. Now he's part of an emerging cabal of ultra- rightists determined to "protect" the un-indicted co-conspirator and risk obstructing justice rather than uphold the rule of law. Party before country!
UPDATE: We are also now hearing that (allegedly!) the shitgibbon wanted to push Fox's malicious, fabricated conspiracy story about Democratic staffer Seth Rich's murder last summer. They needed a distraction and a diversion from the emerging Trump-Russia scandal, of course. So, working hand in hand, they created this hurtful, monstrous conspiracy tale, because no road is ever too low for this sociopathic shitheel or his enablers.
