As Robert Mueller’s never-ending political witch-hunt stretches into yet another month, the mainstream media is holding its breath over the special counsel’s office interest in speaking with the President; completely ignoring the fact the Commander-in-Chief was simply exercising his executive authority when he fired James Comey.
The Washington Post is reporting that Robert Mueller hopes to speak with the President and “is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.”
The “revelation” ignores the fact that both acts -firing the National Security Advisor and the FBI Director- are well within the President’s executive authority and have little to do with the special counsel’s initial probe into allegations the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.
“How can that be?” asked Fox News contributor Victoria Toensing. “Flynn had nothing to do with the special counsel’s probe. And firing the head of the FBI does not thwart what all the people under him are doing. So what is the alleged illegality here that could possibly ‘hamper’ or obstruct the investigation?”
“By agreeing to be interviewed by Mueller, Mr. President, you are agreeing to be questioned about exercising your executive authority in areas having nothing to do with any illegality or even collusion,” she added.

BIAS ALERT: Mueller's No. 2 SECRETLY SLAMMED Trump's Travel Ban
A senior-level prosecutor now serving as a Deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-Trump investigation found himself in hot-water on Tuesday, following reports he praised acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she publicly defied President Trump’s travel ban last January, reports Fox News.
The correspondence, obtained by government watch-dog agency Judicial Watch, shows that Andrew Weissmann emailed Yates in late January with the subject line, “I am so proud.”
“And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” the email continued.
Sally Yates was publicly fired by President Trump after she refused to enforce his executive order regarding immigration and refugees from specific countries around the world.
The news follows another revelation that a senior investigator inside the special counsel’s office was demoted earlier this year for his “anti-Trump bias;” being relocated to the Human Resources Department at the FBI after his “unprofessional” text exchanges were reviewed by Mueller’s team.
“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?” he asked.
Mueller's Attorney VISITED CLINTONS on Election Night
A senior attorney on special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team has even more connections to the Clinton campaign than previously thought; attending Hillary’s election night soiree in New York City along with other senior aides, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Andrew Weissmann, described by the New York Times as Mueller’s “pit-bull,” allegedly attended the Clinton Campaign’s supposed victory party last November.
“Mr. Weissmann also attended Hillary Clinton’s election-night party at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, according to people familiar with his attendance,” writes the Journal.
Earlier this week, government watchdog agency Judicial Watch released an email exchange between the attorney and acting Attorney General Sally Yates, praising her decision to rebuke President Trump’s initial travel ban.
“I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” he wrote in late January.
Weissmann’s anti-Trump bias, along with other senior officials scattered throughout the special counsel’s office, raises serious ethical and legal questions over Mueller’s probe into Russia-Trump collusion in the 2016 election.
On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal urged Robert Mueller to step-down from his position, citing a host of conflicts of interest and the recent revelations regarding anti-Trump political bias throughout the investigation.
