In the appointment of a Special Counsel into the Russian
Interference of the 2016 election, it appears that
Robert Mueller may present several legal conflicts of interest.



WASHINGTON — Robert Mueller, the newly appointed special counsel to investigate Russia’s influence in the 2016 election, potentially carries conflicts of interest with him into the investigation.

Prior to his appointment, Mueller had worked at Wilmer Hale, a law firm with clients that include former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. Each of these individuals potentially could be witnesses or deemed important subjects within Mueller’s probe.


Then there is the potential conflict of his relationship
with James Comey.


On the other hand, Fox News anchor and former defense attorney Gregg Jarrett points to another possible conflict of interest Mueller may have: his past working relationship with former FBI director Jim Comey — the man President Trump fired just two weeks ago. dailycaller.com...



Who appointed him? How was this overlooked?
The conflict of interest was obvious with Comey,
now it looks as if it is on all sides.

Accepted by a majority of all sides of Congress
Worked in both the Bush and Obama administrations



By appointing Mr. Mueller, a former federal prosecutor with an unblemished reputation, Mr. Rosenstein could alleviate uncertainty about the government’s ability to investigate the questions surrounding the Trump campaign and the Russians.

If we go back far enough, we are all related by blood. This man has had thousands of clients and worked with thousands of people. I doubt it matter in the investigation. No one lives in a bubble. No one has absolutely 0 potential conflict of interest.

That's what they all said. Right now there are
left leaning outlets popping up with really
skewed headlines. I avoided those. Lol!
