Congress can get rid of Mueller any time it pleases. So can Trump but he won't do it because of optics, why should an innocent man fire his accuser when Congress can do it.
Its not so simple because they would have to create a law for themselves to do it that goes over DOJ ....catch 22

Oh look, the swamp doesn't want to be drained. Surprising. Perhaps they'll recommend cloning Devin Nunez and having him be the special counsel.

Nunes would be better than stickman Schiff.
At least he won't be reading Russian comic books.

Nope,


Trump or Congress can still block Robert Mueller. I know. I wrote the rules.



Congress, Trump and the Justice Department still have the power to stymie (or even terminate) Mueller’s inquiry.


From the guy who wrote the special-counsel rules.


In fact, the special-counsel regulations under which Mueller was appointed were written precisely to address a situation like this one. I would know; I wrote them, in 1999.

Your certainly entitled to your opinion.
Even if it is unfounded.



The accusation surrounding U1 are unfounded.


Are they?

U1 may not have had an export license, but RSB Logistic Services did.

Well we knew this was coming. It seems Mueller has taken 6 months and spent millions to come up with little. Should he have an unlimited scope of investigation? Unlimited resources?


Come up with little? He's just got his first indictments against two of the most corrupt creatures to ever swim in the swamp and there's a very high likelihood that some other lobbyists will be joining them soon.

Now partisan hacks are trying to cut him off at the knees a week later?

Nothing suspect about that timing at all.

Compromised smokescreen man Mueller will be out soon, then a real special counsel, maybe even one that is currently serving that has been Senate confirmed....hint hint would have powers equal to the Attorney General not subordinate powers like Mueller...can be appointed to look into dun dun duuun...Hillary, Obama, Trump, everybody and see who comes out smelling like roses.

Your side is squirming as the screws are getting slowly turned. The Left should have let Trump alone, he was willing to give Hillary a pass, they are bringing this on themselves.

If she goes down, she doesn't seem the type to have any qualms taking everyone down with her just for spite and vengeance.

Well if optics didn't matter then yea but ....MSM would go nuts if Trump fired a guy who was investigating Trump and you could say the same thing about Sessions . The conflict of interests and maintaining ethics is something Muller should have shown . For Trump and Sessions to stoop to that level might bring into question their Integrity ... If Congress can do it then they can have at it ... But I think that only means that they have to step outside the constitution to do it .

Anyone else find it odd how all of a sudden the Trump support squad around here are all on board with the mueller investigation because Tony Podesta might be in trouble because his lobbying firmed worked for Manafort?

Trump's not firing anyone, Congress can when it is able to show Mueller is compromised with conflicts of interest. He was head of FBI during Uranium One when the FBI found evidence of illegal Russian activity but withheld it from Congress so the deal could go through.

Funny that the swamp funk leads to Podesta Inc & uranium. And Russia!

I say let Mueller stay, he will eff up his own deep state teammates without even meaning to.

The chaos and collapse is epic.

Mueller KNOWS where the bodies are buried but he doesn't know which ones are coming back to life to get him.

He's perpetually stuck and has lost his way between the dems that will kill him and his family and Trump who will kill his career.

Mueller's been a dirty dog for anyone who would buy him from the beginning and he sees the end is near. No pity.

Muller is innocent until proven guilty so firing him for something that has not gone to trial even if the facts look bad has no weight because if it did then Trump would have been gone long ago ...catch 22

Congress decides. They can vote after evidence of Mueller's conflicts of interest are brought before them out of committee. If they vote he goes, he goes, simple as that.

So by "draining the swamp" Trump actually meant hiring them all into his administration and then firing them one by one? I thought he said he was going to get the "best people" to start off with?

This administration is a complete and utter joke.


There is definitely some very incompetent things Trump has done by hiring and appointing well known double agents to run different things. And it does boggle the mind.

So let's get this all straight. The Clinton Foundation took donations (98% of which came from a guy who was never part of Uranium One mind you and 99% of them coming before the Rosatom proposed the acquisition), Clinton was 1 out of 9 votes and neither attending the CFIUS meetings herself nor actually cast the vote, the entire DOJ sprung into action to suppress an ongoing FBI case in which indictments weren't obtained until YEARS later and then they all just bided their time for a couple years before allowing some uranium to be exported to Canada on an export license under which uranium was already being exported to Canada?

That about sums it up?

So in effect, back in 2007, a guy who didn't stand to profit from the deal dumped $130+ million into the CF to buy 1/9th of the votes needed to approve the Rosatom/Uranium One deal from a person who wouldn't become SoS for two years, so that years after that (5 years down the road), they could export uranium to Canada (and 1/4 of that to Europe/Asia), netting the guy who dumped the money absolutely... nothing?

What was in it for Giustra? What would have been in it for Mueller or anyone in the FBI or DOJ?

You know what though? I'm all for investigation Uranium One and everything that goes with it.

No need for Mueller to resign. It's a bunch of bull# borne of out-of-control hyperpartisan speculation owing to unsubstantiated, vague claims made through a GOP hatchetwoman lawyer whose partner and husband has a history of outlandish statements that aren't proven true.

and say what ? that he should have recused himself ? I agree but wouldn't that meant that they would have to know the whole story to his investigation before making that call ? catch 22

Nope, if he has a conflict of interest the body of his work under that conflict of interest is useless.
