The two FBI investigators had a long-concealed amorous relationship characterized by an overriding antipathy for Donald Trump and a desire to ensure that he was not elected president or, barring that, did not prove a successful president.
The former deputy director of the FBI should never have been assigned to the Clinton email scandal and should have had no further assignments into anything tangential to charges of Russian-Trump collusion.
Rosenstein never should have been allowed to appoint the special counsel Robert Mueller.
At least four of the Mueller team worked as lawyers at the Washington law firm of WilmerHale. Robert Mueller should never have recruited so many of his former associates.
Weissmann should never have been appointed to the Mueller team.
He may be the most conflicted of all government attorneys associated with past and present investigations.
He was Mueller’s chief of staff while Mueller was FBI director, and yet another former partner at WilmerHale.
It might be one thing to have one member of a team investigating Trump who had represented an employee or foundation of the Clintons, but quite another with two incidents.
A special counsel investigation is by nature an object of singular scrutiny. Fairly and not, it is constantly subject to charges of partisanship, and government pressure.
