The bombshell of anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok has put the spotlight on Special Investigator Robert Mueller’s conduct regarding the “Russia” investigation.
Mueller’s investigations may be labeled as “irredeemably compromised” in the near future.
From The Daily Caller:
The revelation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller kept secret that a top FBI investigator overseeing the Russia investigation exchanged anti-Trump text messages with an FBI attorney has fueled questions about Mueller’s credibility and his ability to oversee an impartial investigation.
Peter Strzok, the anti-Trump agent, is reported to be the official who first signed the FBI’s Russia investigation into existence and interviewed Michael Flynn. Strzok was also reportedly the one who softened former FBI Director James Comey’s language referring to Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
In an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told the Daily Caller co-founder that “both [the Clinton and Russia] investigations in my view have been irredeemably compromised.”
“The Clinton investigation needs to be reopened and the Mueller investigation needs to be shut down until we figure out how badly it’s been politicized,” Fitton said.
The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board said the Strzok news “reinforces our doubts about Mr. Mueller’s ability to conduct a fair and credible probe of the FBI’s considerable part in the Russia-Trump drama” in a column for Tuesday’s paper.
The editors noted Mueller’s close friendship with Comey, as well as his “reluctance to cooperate with” congressional oversight of the Russia investigation.
