Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream Media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!
According to USNews.com,
President Donald Trump declared Thursday that he didn’t fire FBI Director James Comey over the Russia investigation, despite previously citing that as the reason. His lawyer, meanwhile, blasted federal investigators as “a lynching mob” the Trump team will “knock the heck out of” in the end.
The president has said at least twice that Comey’s firing in May 2017 was related to the FBI’s investigation into whether Trump’s campaign associates coordinated with Russia in an effort to sway the 2016 election. And his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News earlier this month that Trump fired Comey because the FBI director wouldn’t publicly state that he “wasn’t a target” of the Russia investigation.
Trump’s attempt to revise his public statements on Comey’s firing came as Giuliani drew criticism for comparing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to a “lynching mob.”
So, exactly how much has this “lunching mob cost American Taxpayers?
Bloomberg.com reports that
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election has cost more than $16 million during its first year, according to the Justice Department.
The department on Thursday released the latest spending tally, compiled by Mueller’s office, showing that $10 million was spent from Oct. 1 to March 31. Mueller’s direct spending during the time period was about $4.5 million.
The rest reflects spending by Justice Department components in support of his investigation, which includes whether President Donald Trump or anyone close to him colluded with Russians. The department said the components would have incurred those expenses even if the special counsel didn’t exist — an indication of how embedded investigative activities are within the department.
The Justice Department previously reported that about $6.7 million was spent from the time Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017 to the end of September.
Personnel and Travel
The majority of funds spent by Mueller in the latest period — about $2.7 million — went for personnel, with the rest going to travel, office space and contracting services, the Justice Department said.
The Justice Department has budgeted $10 million for Mueller to spend in fiscal 2019, which begins on Oct. 1. Trump has seized on that figure in tweets attacking the investigation.
About Mueller’s personnel…
Sixteen members of Mueller’s Investigative Team were Democrat Donors. But, 13…16…what’s a few more Democrats in Mueller’s lynch mob, anyway?
Mueller and his cadre of Liberal SS Troops have made it their mission to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically called “an investigation”.
The more that Mueller and his troops insist that they are non-biased, the more information comes forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.
They are proving themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.
Several members of Mueller’s Team worked for the same Law Firm, WilmerHale, a huge Donor to the Democratic Party.
Anyone who has ever worked for the Law Firm of WilmerHale has donated to the Democratic Party…including Special Counsel Robert Mueller!
Courtesy of OpenSecrets.org, here is a history of WilmerHale’s Political Donations from 1990-2018.
If you look at the Total Percentage of Political Contributions made by the Law Firm that Robert Mueller and several of his “investigators” worked for, you will notice that over the last 28 years, Wilmer Hale has donated approximately 8.5 million dollars to individual political candidates with 66% of those funds going to Democrats and only 31% going to Republicans.
Now. let’s get down to the number crunching….
Check out WilmerHale’s political donations for the 2016 Election Cycle. They gave $1,484,082 in total contributions. 76% of that total went to Democrats, including I am sure, a sizable chunk to the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton. Only 21% of their Political Donations for the year of 2016 went to Republican Candidates.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a partner at Hale and Dorr LLP, an affiliate of WilmerHale, from 1993-1995. In 1994, that Law Firm gave a Total of $64,525 in Political Donations to Individual Candidates. $40,550 went to Democrats. $23,975 went to Republicans. The percentages broke down to 63% and 37%, respectively.
Robert Mueller was hired at WilmerHale in March of 2014 and stayed there until he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.
That means that he was a contributor through his Law Firm to two Election Cycles, the 2014 Midterm Elections and the 2016 Presidential Election.
For over one year now, we have been hearing from the Democratic Leadership as to how Special Counsel Mueller’s integrity is above reproach. I do not personally know the man, so I have no first-hand knowledge of whether it is or not.
However, is it just me…or does it appear to be a gross Conflict of Interest for the Special Counsel and several members of his staff, who are conducting an exhaustive, no boundaries investigation searching for possible malfeasance of the part of a sitting Republican President and his staff, to have been members of a Law Firm with a very long and lucrative history of heavy donations to the Democratic Party?
With no evidence of collusion with the Russians on the part of Donald J. Trump having been found and assurances from Mueller that Trump is NOT his target, then what, at this point, is the purpose of the Special Counsel’s Ongoing Investigation?
The only logical conclusion that can be made is that Mueller and his Investigative Team are performing a service not unlike the service that David Axlerod performed for Barack Hussein Obama when he ran for the Senate in Illinois. Mueller and his team are digging up whatever dirt that they can find, using whatever means necessary, including going way out of their jurisdiction, is order to damage and possibly end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.
That being said, it is time for Trump to get a new Attorney General and for that Attorney General to pull the plug out of the wall from Special Counsel Mueller’s Money Machine.
The IG Report is due out on June 5th.
There will be some actual investigating of government officials that will need to be taken care of after it is released.
And, Mueller and team won’t be able to do it.
After all…they contributed to them.
