Months ago critics of special counsel Robert Mueller pointed out that as he was assembling his legal team while ramping up his probe of alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton — which we now know is completely bogus — he appeared to be putting together a hit squad of Democrat-leaning lawyers.
“Four top lawyers hired by Mueller have contributed tens of thousands of dollars over the years to the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates, including former President Barack Obama and President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton,” Lifezette reported in June.
As further noted by The National Sentinel, one of those attorneys is Jeannie Rhee. She has worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation and actually helped persuade a federal judge to block a conservative activist’s attempts to require the former first couple to respond under oath to questions under oath surrounding their family-operated charity. (Related: Now DEMS have a ‘Russia problem.’)
Also, “Rhee donated the maximum individual amount of $2,700 to Clinton in 2015 and 2016. In addition, she gave Obama 2,300 in 2008 and $2,500 in 2011,” the site reported. “While still working for the Justice Department, she donated $250 to the Democratic National Committee Services Corp.”
Rhee has also given to other Democrats, including Sens. Mark Udall of New Mexico, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.
Now, as exclusively reported by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on her program Tuesday, Rhee also worked in the Obama Justice Department as a deputy assistant attorney general in the office of legal counsel, which provided legal advice to the Obama White House.
Moreover, Rhee served as the personal attorney of Obama’s deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodes.
Adding more fuel to the bias fire, Ingraham noted that Rhee also worked in private practice with Andrew Weissmann, another Mueller team member who received deserved criticism this past week after it was discovered that he sent demonstrably partisan email to a former top Justice Department official. He praised outgoing Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enforce Trump’s first travel ban.
“I’m so proud and in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respect,” he wrote. Trump fired Yates after she refused to do her job.
Rhee becomes the third member of the Mueller team to demonstrate “brazen partisanship” towards the party opposed to the president, behind FBI counterterrorism investigator Peter Strzok (who has since been demoted off the investigation) and Weissmann, who also has a history of donating to Democrats, including then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008, during his first campaign for president, when he wrote a check for $2,300.
“There is no way these people are going to be fair to Trump – a fact not lost on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal advisor to the president,” The National Sentinel noted.
“What Mueller did was hire a pedigree team of obvious partisans,” she said. “They should all step aside, including Bob Mueller.”
She’s not the first to call for Mueller to step down, especially as more is learned about Strzok — who exchanged anti-Trump, pro-Clinton emails with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whom he was also having an extramarital affair with.
“Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring. check fec reports. Time to rethink,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., tweeted in June, using the acronym for the Federal Election Commission, which tracks political donations.
In November, House Republicans introduced a resolution calling on Mueller to step down after it’s become obvious he’s a deep state operative who is so overwhelmingly compromised it’s hard to imagine we’re watching real life and not a Hollywood political thriller.
“Mueller’s got to go… Congressional pressure is growing by the hour,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said. “Mueller was not a spectator to the transactions” regarding the Uranium One scandal and other events “that now give us grave concern,” he added.
Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, writing at network affiliate site News Target, added that it is “time to ARREST Robert Mueller, James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Peter Strzok and the rest of the lawless gang trying to overthrow America.”
