  • Meet Special Counsel Mueller's Investigative Team

    Interesting group with a very high level of experience prosecuting.

    Well, let's see.

    Only one of his team is a registered Republican...

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018...epublican.html

    The majority are political hacks that worked for Obama and Hillary Clinton, often donating thousands to their campaigns (10 of 17 known to have).
    One, Rhee, worked to bury Clinton Foundation scandals along with some of Hillary's e-mail scandal

    Reading their bio's, it's a who's who of Trump haters for the most part. Many are individuals that would gleefully embellish evidence to pin it on Trump.

    The witch hunt continues and now we know the primary actors.

      First problem, you're using Fox News as a reference.

      Second problem you're labeling people you don't know, all of whom have an excellent record of public service, politically which is abhorrent. People who have sworn to serve the Constitution and have demonstrated that trait in the past tend to continue to do so no matter which political party is in power.

      Third, you are attempting to determine a person's loyalty and service by his or her political party. That is abhorrent and completely illogical.

      That merely shows that you think political affiliation is more important than competence, expertise, and loyalty to the nation and the Constitution.

      Who is now the 'political hack'?

        Why is that a problem? You regularly cite CNN a proven source of fake and even made up news.

        Actually, I bothered to read their bios since they all have many choices on line to read from. Everything I cited was accurate. Actually, about a third of them have records of being weasels or being more than willing to defend weasels. Rhee is an excellent example. She defended the Clinton Foundation. She defended Clinton's e-mail scandal. She donated heavily to the Democrats, Hillary, and even the Clinton Foundation. She's a weasel and she defended weasels.
        She's hardly the only one either.

        Third, you are attempting to determine a person's loyalty and service by his or her political party. That is abhorrent and completely illogical.


        No, I'm implying there's a conflict of interest when someone is investigating politicians of the opposite party to the one they themselves are in and that they donated, and in some cases heavily, to the opposition party and were even active in it. It also doesn't look good that many took cases and other legal work that might show a bias against the parties they are now investigating. Your statement is nothing more than an ad hominem.

        That merely shows that you think political affiliation is more important than competence, expertise, and loyalty to the nation and the Constitution.

        You are. This is more proof of it. Why? You chose to refute my statements with ad hominems and red herrings rather than facts.

          Does the list include those booted or forced to resign because of explicit bias?
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            Well...

            There's Andrew Weissmann. His track record is one of pushing the boundaries of legality to get convictions, many of which get later overturned due to his tactics.

            http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-n...216-story.html

            http://www.businessinsider.com/who-i...on-fbi-2017-12

            He also sent an email to acting attorney general Sally Yates complimenting her refusal to implement the Trump executive order stopping immigration from eight countries.

            He was one of the first Mueller hired.

            There was Lisa Page. She got dropped after the FBI Strrzok e-mail scandal broke as she was exchanging e-mails with him regularly.

            Jeannie Rhee defended the Clinton Foundation on racketeering charges among other paid work for that organization. Given the known qualities of the Steele dossier and how it came to be paid for she should be fired.

            Just the fact that virtually all (13 of 17 by most accounts) are to one degree or another hardcore supporters of the Democrat party, Democrats, and haters of Trump should give anyone pause as to the integrity of the investigation. Throw in pit bulls willing to bend or ignore the law like Weissmann, and you have a very jaundiced group of lawyers on Mueller's team.

                How many of them were on the staff of somebody fired by Trump?
                No axe to grind there!

                  Only a couple... Most quit when Trump came into office and started working at private sector law firms. Almost all of them were in the DoJ during the Obama administration too.

                        You used CNN to start this thread and now you are using Vox to support the thread.

                        You might want to look up Vox.

                          If it looks like corruption, talks like corruption, smells like corruption then it must be the Trump White House.

                          Where was all the BS talk of coup during Ken Starrs investigation?

                            Do you rate his lies as positive?

                            Do you rate his calling Rosie positive?

                            Do you rate is lack of visits to the troops as positive?

                            If you like dirty air again I guess you think his gutting the EPA as positive.

                            and, and, and.
