Manning: Mueller should be fired, politically weaponized FBI and Justice Dept. is ‘un-American’

Dec. 5, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and to end his investigation:

“Several extremely troubling revelations have become known in recent weeks about the orchestrated attempt to take down President Donald Trump before he ever took office.

Lee Smith at the Federalist alleges that Fusion GPS has been paying reporters to publish political attack pieces based on manufactured sources to delegitimize the Trump campaign and then the official transition after he won the election in late 2016. This sheds new light on the climate in the media prior to the publication of the original story that then-President Elect Donald Trump had been briefed by the FBI on the Fusion GPS-Christopher Steele dossier alleging Trump-Russia collusion, which then became the basis for reporting on it. Laura Jarret and Evan Perez CNN revealed that it was an FBI counterintelligence official, Peter Strzok, who edited an exoneration into what was supposed to be the final report on the Clinton email investigation well in advance of Hillary Clinton’s interview with the FBI that, as Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reports, he was leading. The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross also reports that Strzok was the same agent who questioned Cheryl Mills on the private Clinton email server, who along with other Clinton aides was later granted immunity. Sara Carter at reports that Strzok was also the same agent who questioned former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn about his conversations with multiple ambassadors, a meeting which was set up by Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe under false pretenses as a routine discussion of security procedures at the White House. Couple all this with the fact that, as reported by the Washington Post’s Adam Entous, Devlin Barrett and Rosalind Heldermant, the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign via law firm Perkins Coie paid for the Fusion GPS-Christopher Steele dossier that originated the unsubstantiated allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to hack the DNC and put the emails on Wikileaks, which then became one of the bases for the FBI witch hunt, including in obtaining FISA court warrants. The FBI under former Director James Comey even reportedly offered to pay Steele to continue this work.

“It is anti-American to have a politically weaponized FBI and Justice Department. The evidence now available indicates that higher-ups at the FBI would pursue any measure in their attempts not only to prop up Hillary Clinton, but to take down President Trump at any cost. Since the entire Mueller investigation is the fruit of this poisonous tree, the only course Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein can pursue must be to fire Mueller and end this political coup in order to restore the rule of law.”
