Pelosi Calls on Justice Department to Stop Trump White House from Obstructing Special Counsel Mueller’s Investigation, Announces Plans to Introduce Measure Demanding Waiver


http://www.democraticleader.gov/newsroom/52017/

Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement following a news report that the White House may use ethics rules to try to avoid the full scrutiny of the Trump-Russia federal investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

“News reports indicate that the Trump White House is seeking to use the Code of Federal Regulations to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, impugn his credibility and limit the scope of the probe.

“House Democrats call upon Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to fend off attempts to thwart the federal investigation and issue the appropriate waiver now. He should do so today.

“Next week, House Democrats will introduce legislation making clear that Director Mueller’s independence is without question and calling upon the Department of Justice to issue the appropriate waiver immediately.

“These ethics rules were designed to prevent conflicts of interest, not to allow the White House or the President to avoid the full scrutiny of a special counsel or to impugn the credibility of a distinguished public servant.”

4. Trump impugning someone's credibility?.

I can't wrap my mind around how that could be accomplished, will trump hand in his argument in crayon or poster paint?, what will happen when the dog eats his homework?.

An excuse note from jarvanka?.

5. An Independent Counsel may be necessary.

Pelosi is on the right track with her message to Deputy AG Rosenstein, but the fact she has to say this shows that der Hauptdrumpfubergropenfuhrer's administration plans to stonewall and derail every which way they can.

I hope that Pelosi and all Americans are ready to call for a fully Independent Counsel.

k&r,

12. Well, good luck with that.

Rosenstein IS part of the effort to limit the scope of the Special Counsel.

The kill the investigation entirely, actually.
