Mueller probe distraction a threat to national security

April 10, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement warning that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has become a threat to national security:

“Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s desperate FBI raid on the home and office of President Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, is a trivial distraction in dangerous times. The simple fact that Mueller’s investigation has devolved into chasing decade-old allegations of an aging porn star points to the end of Mueller’s relevance. The Attorney General should immediately fire Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Mueller for abusing President Trump’s constitutional rights.

“Today, the President is dealing with talks to denuclearize North Korea, the Syrian chemical weapons attack, trade issues with China and potential Russian encroachments into Ukraine. The distraction that Mueller’s headline-seeking antics create over trivial matters are no longer in U.S. national security interests. We need President Trump fully focused on the real problems facing our nation. It’s time for Jeff Sessions to swat the gnat that is Mueller and put the Special Counsel investigation to rest. Our nation’s security demands it.”
