FINALLY! Nineteen GOP Congressmen Call For Hearings on Mueller to “Bring His Team Out of the Shadows”

Nineteen GOP Congressmen signed a letter which was sent Friday calling for Congressional hearings on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to keep him and his seventeen liberal hack lawyers accountable.

The letter sent to House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley opens up by pointing out that every U.S. Attorney has to be confirmed by the Senate. This process brings forward any conflicts of interest, bias or questionable past conduct. Mueller and his team arguably have more power yet have not gone through any such process.

“This team has sweeping authority and an open-ended mission, yet they are allowed to operate largely in secret, selected by and ultimately accountable to only one person: Mr. Mueller himself. With numerous reports emerging almost everyday on possible conflicts of interest and allegations of political bias, it would be in the interest of both the public and the Special Counsel team to speak to the American people through their elected representatives in Congress.”

“Accordingly, we respectfully request that one of both of the Judiciary Committees immediately convene a public and open hearing or series of hearings to bring Mr. Mueller and his team out of the shadows and into the public square.”

FOX News analyst and attorney, Gregg Jarrett also said many times that Mueller is hopelessly conflicted in violating the law; President Trump should DEMAND he resign.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Special Counsel Robert Mueller added his 16th and 17th radical left-wing lawyers to his team in early August and mid September, respectively, as he continues to investigate Trump’s personal finances under the guise of a ‘Russia probe’.

Kyle Freeny, the 17th lawyer to be hired specializes in money laundering and was present as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort testified in front of a grand jury at federal court in Washington.

Greg Andres is the 16th lawyer to be added to Mueller’s team. He worked under Eric ‘Fast N’ Furious’ Holder from 2010 to 2012. No bias here though. This is a completely fair investigation as Paul Ryan says.

Here is a look at the 15 other attorneys who will investigate Trump.

    • Rush Atkinson, an attorney on detail from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section at the Department of Justice

    — Weissmann donated $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, $2,000 to the DNC in 2006 and at least $2,300 to the Clinton campaign in 2007.
  • Aaron Zebley, a former partner at WilmerHale who has previously served with Mueller at the FBI and has served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.
    — Worked with Robert Mueller at the WilmerHale firm.

These other Mueller attorneys have less conspicuous political leanings:

    — Worked under Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein in Maryland.
  • Zainab Ahmad, a top national security prosecutor on detail from U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.
  • Michael Dreeben, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General, described by former colleagues as one of the brightest criminal law experts of the past two generations.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton has repeatedly called for the Mueller investigation to be shut down as it is unsupervised and unconstitutional.

Why did the Republicans wait so long to finally call for oversight on this obvious witch hunt??
