President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton called Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation ‘out of control’ and argued that it should be shut down.
Fitton joined “America’s News HQ” this afternoon to explain after Mueller’s latest hire of Andrew Goldstein, a former prosecutor who worked under Preet Bharara in New York.
Fitton questioned who is overseeing Mueller’s day-to-day conduct, pointing to the 12 hires he has made for his legal team.
He noted that several of the lawyers donated to Democrats and it seems that the team is “searching for a crime.”
“I don’t understand what this investigation is about,” he said, adding that there are constitutional questions that must be answered.
Fitton: “…You know my count is 14, 15 lawyers to have working on this one investigation to investigate to investigate what? An employment dispute between Comey and the President?
I don’t understand what this investigation is about. You have the conflicts caused by Comey leaking records to get Mueller appointed, you have Constitutional concerns about the way the office operates.”
Fitton pointed out that the counsel is being stacked with Democrat donors, as TGP has previously reported.
Fitton asked, “Are there any Trump donors on the team?”
There is no day to day supervision of these appointments; there is no Constitutional officer supervising. Who is watching the watchers?
