[Ed. – The far-left view of a travesty]
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s pronouncement Tuesday that the Justice Department must do “what’s required by the rule of law” and must remain insulated from politics should not have been necessary. There was a time, not very long ago, when the necessity of a Justice Department free from political influence was not a controversial position. Unfortunately, things have changed and, today, law enforcement is under attack.
Americans have heard the President dismiss the work of career public servants as “an attack on our country in a true sense.” The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been tarred as “embarrassment[s] to our country.”
These are just a couple of the comments that have justifiably raised suspicion that the President may soon attempt to remove Robert Mueller from his role as special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, speculation only further fueled by Wednesday’s reporting suggesting Mueller could soon subpoena the President. Firing Mueller would be a grave mistake, and Americans of all political stripes must stand together to do everything possible to prevent it from happening. The stakes are real, and the potential consequences would be far-reaching.
