The Republican Congress has been largely silent when it comes to defending President Trump against a vicious hate campaign by the opposition forces.
The Democrats, former Obama regime officials and their winged monkeys in the media have gotten away with a scurrilous, evidence-free, neo-McCarthyite campaign of slime and innuendo that Trump associates colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary.
Congressional tribunals have been convened, illegal leaks of classified information have been all but condoned and Democrats have been whipping their street rabble into a murderous frenzy.
Worst of all, a special counsel has been appointed largely due to a leak of classified information by shady former FBI Director James Comey. All of this happened with no pushback from the cowardly GOP Congress led by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan who are happy to share power with Democrats.
Until now. For the first time, a Republican Congressman is taking the side of the President by calling for the resignation of rogue special counsel Robert Mueller and his mandate to find an impeachable offense against Trump – even if it exceeds the scope of his original investigation.

The Washington Examiner is reporting “House Freedom Caucus member calls for Mueller resignation”:
Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., is calling for the resignation of Robert Mueller, the special counsel for the Russia investigation, and says Mueller has a conflict of interest because he’s close friends with former FBI Director James Comey.
Franks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus who sits on the Judiciary Committee, said another major problem is that members of Mueller’s team donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign last year.
“Bob Mueller is in clear violation of federal code and must resign to maintain the integrity of the investigation into alleged Russian ties,” Franks said. “Those who worked under them have attested he and Jim Comey possess a close friendship, and they have delivered on-the-record statements effusing praise of one another.”
“No one knows Mr. Mueller’s true intentions, but neither can anyone dispute that he now clearly appears to be a partisan arbiter of justice. Accordingly, the law is also explicitly clear: he must step down based on this conflict of interest,” Franks said.
“Already, this investigation has become suspect – reports have revealed at least four members of Mueller’s team on the Russia probe donated to support Hillary Clinton for President, as President Trump pointed out. These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality,” Franks said. “Until Mueller resigns, he will be in clear violation of the law, a reality that fundamentally undermines his role as Special Counsel and attending ability to execute the law.”
Congressman Franks is precisely correct on this. Mueller and Comey are longtime friends and it was Comey who engineered the leaking of his memos of Trump’s conversations with him to the New York Times.
The degree to which the entire media and key members of Congress are behind “Bob” or “Bobby” Mueller’s fishing expedition shows that the conclusion has already been established and that the only thing that Mueller and his partisan team are to do is to comb through all of Trump’s records to find the “evidence” to support his removal from office.
The entire thing has been a sham from the get go and since Trump has now painted himself into a corner where he can’t get rid of Mueller without being crucified by Congress.
Representative Franks is absolutely right, Mueller should resign immediately.
