Special Counsel Mueller and his ‘conflicted staff’ must be removed…
Larry Klayman, a former prosecutor of the U.S. Department of Justice, founder of Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, filed a complaint before the Office of Professional Responsibility on September 11, and Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), seeking an investigation and the eventual removal and prosecution of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Klayman sites Mueller’s and his staff’s – which are Democrat/Clinton political campaign donors and supporters in large part – conflicts of interest, and having illegally leaked grand jury information to harm President Trump, his family and former and present colleagues.
Freedom Watch reports:
Klayman had this to say upon filing this compelling and hard-hitting complaint, before his alma mater:
“The Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) and Inspector General (IG) are charged with investigating and remedying unethical and illegal behavior by the Special Counsel and other DOJ lawyers and staff. Special Counsel, Mueller derives his office and powers from the DOJ, as he was appointed, strangely, by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“As our Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and his Deputy Rosenstein, have failed and apparently refuse to properly police the illegal grand jury leaks and conflicts of interest of Special Counsel Mueller — putting their own personal, political and professional interests before all else — the job falls upon Freedom Watch and OPR and the IG to represent the interests of the American people for truth and justice.
“If OPR and the IG themselves fail to take action, Freedom Watch will file a court complaint to force them to take appropriate action.
“The OPR and IG complaint, embedded visually below, speaks for itself. I urge you to carefully review this complaint to understand the egregious, unethical and illegal actions of this politically partisan Special Counsel. For this Special Counsel Mueller must be removed, along with his conflicted staff, and then referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for criminal prosecution.”
Rarely in our memory has such a shocking river of leaks been so great in quantity, so flagrant and brazen, and so extensive and continuous. The purpose of the rules against leaks of information obtained during criminal investigations includes the fear of deterring cooperation of witnesses with investigators upon seeing that their “confidential” discussions with DoJ personnel are splashed upon the pages of The Washington Post or The New York Times and other anti-Trump “friendly media.”
And of course these leaks pollute the jury pool directly compromising the integrity of the legal process and depriving potential defendants of due process and unfairly smears those who may be found in the end to be blameless, yet smeared by the leaks.
While it is often difficult by nature to know prior to an investigation who is responsible for leaks, a pattern of a persistent torrent of leaks, considering their nature, makes it clear that the majority of these leaks are coming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his staff, most of whom are suffering from serious conflicts of interest.
The nature as well as the quantity of these leaks makes it clear that they are coming from the DoJ and/or FBI , and his legal staff, which are technically under the direction and control and authority of DoJ as well, egregiously under Special Counsel Mueller’s direction.
No DoJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with any person [James Comey] or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution, or who would be directly affected by the outcome. 28 CFR 45.2
What Mueller’s staff is focused on and even what they are thinking are being regularly reported in the news media. The news media knows exactly what Special Counsel Mueller and his compromised staff is doing on a daily basis.
