Well Mueller isn't going anywhere by the looks of it. We've seen anger from Trump and his supporters mounted at various people, including his very own in the Whitehouse, Rosenstein and Sessions, for refusing to take action against Mueller. Is this judge next I wonder?


A federal district judge who was appointed by President Donald Trump has upheld Robert Mueller's appointment and constitutional authority in the special counsel's case against Russian social media propagandists.

Judge Dabney Friedrich, who serves at the trial-court level in DC federal court, said Concord Management and Consulting could not have its case tossed on constitutional grounds. The Russian company accused of backing a social media effort to sway voters against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed Mueller didn't have power to bring the case because he was not appointment by the President and confirmed by Congress. Mueller was appointed under the authority of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has broad power as the acting head of the Justice Department for the 2016 election probe.

It's kind of hard to argue against the legitimacy of an investigation citing a bias of some kind when the person heading the investigation is a Republican (Mueller), appointed by people in the current Administration (Rosenstein), given free reign to continue his investigation unopposed by people in the Administration (Sessions), backed by various people in the party of the President (Gowdy etc.). It's any wonder why people are getting uptight about Mueller anyway?

So far Mueller hasn't targeted the president directly and others seem to taking on the burn from the investigation. A year and a half in, Trump still assumes the office of the president. If people are so very sure Trump isn't responsible for the Russian attacks..... so I say let the investigation proceed and finish.

Further from the judge:


"The appointment does not violate core separation-of-powers principles. Nor has the Special Counsel exceeded his authority under the appointment order by investigating and prosecuting Concord," Friedrich wrote in an opinion published Monday morning. She was one of the first judges Trump placed into a federal court position.



Friedrich cited opinions by three other federal judges -- Amy Berman Jackson, who oversees Paul Manafort's criminal foreign lobbying case; T.S. Ellis, who oversees Manafort's financial fraud case; and DC District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell -- to back up her decision.

I can't give you a flag🏁 up top so here's one. Half my functions on this site are not operable. Sorry.
Just know you have one more than your flag count says from here on out.

I've said from the beginning that they should just let the investigation proceed at its own pace and conclude when everything that can be learned has been learned.

Neither of your Links work, but always remember, POTUS can just FIRE him, but as such, is doing things as outlined by his peoples.

It's no water off our backs and let him chase the carrot 😏

Except that's what is happening already.

The POTUS simply wants it done and gone as it's a clout in all things he does 😏

Fools and ignorants hijack important talking points for a pointless investigation and spam the airwaves with this BS.

Like I said, it doesn't hurt to try to kill it, but if it runs its course, f# it 😌

When all is said and done, I'll look back at ya'lls post and laugh 🤤

I'd say this one quote from your story pretty much sums it up.


special counsel's case against Russian social media propagandists.


So his case has now simply become a fight against Russian trolls....he must be so proud!

LOL....watch out dumb americans....those Russian social media propagandists are gonna gitcha!

His "authority" is vested in the position of Special Counsel. That's a no-brainer.

What's not in his authority is witch-hunting to take down a duly elected President, by any means necessary.


But if Mueller is working with Trump/Rosenstein/Sessions/Huber, then this judge's ruling is part of plan.


Poor Dims.

Bull he doesn't want it done. He wants it gone. Two entirely different things.

You go ahead and make your plans for laughing at me.

His presidency is a complete failure to me regardless of any outcome.

Exactly.

Mueller's scope is that which is under scrutiny. Investigate Russian social media propagandists all you want... indict Russian companies and individuals that will never show up in court all you want.

The scope is narrow, that's all that is being confirmed here.

He has the power to make it gone, yet hasn't....that SHOULD tell you something.

Exactly....just seems folks want to spin what is said to fit a narrative.

I do find these threads hilarious.

everyone wants it done except the handful of people left that think a magic bullet will be found and he will be impeached in time to save the mid-terms for the democrats... or the DNC itself since it helps cover the fact they don't actually have a platform to try and convince the independents to vote for them.

Someone should tell Trump, and Congress to go home.

Judicial hacktavists have everything covered.

We don't need those checks and balancess anyway.

...and it's because of this corrupt perspective of yours that will gurantee me those plans for "laughter", as you are just proving what the residents of ATS have known for some time about your posting.

You don't give a crap at all, you're just here to push the leftist MO as indicated by your post. Glad we can clear that up 😐

And I suppose you also believe there was no political bias in Strzok's text messages? Also let's not forget that Trump has been registered as both a Democrat and Republican at different points in time, so I'm not sure why political affiliation is assumed to be a pretense for dismissing an argument of political bias on behalf of the counsel.

He can and most likely will, considering Strozk was just fired, leading more evidence of a bias investigation.

Infact, regardless if Trump appointed this judge doesn't change the fact that Trump will still do what he wants.

It's a bit tricky to manuever around corruption, as you can see.

Anything Trump does that deals with Mueller and Democrats will seize on it immediately and all we will see (continue to see) is left wing media throwing a fit while Democrats accuse Trump of obstruction while trying to make it more than it is for the midterms.

Trump is not the subject of an investigation... he is the subject of a coup.


As for the constitutionality of Muellers appointment that is a scotus issue.

Yay, let's waste more time and taxpayer money for a partisan witch hunt.

Instead of our Government fixing actual problems they are making them where none existed.
