Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe is completely off the rails.
He’s arresting people for alleged crimes that have nothing to do with the 2016 election.
He’s seizing documents from President Donald Trump’s family business and personal attorney.
Mueller is even trying to get records on a payment allegedly made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
What does that have to do with Russia?
How on Earth is Mueller getting away with all of this nonsense?
Mueller practically has a “mole” planted in the Justice Department, doing his bidding for him and signing off on his every move.
It’s Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Rosenstein was put in charge of matters related to the Russia probe after President Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.
It was Rosenstein who appointed Mueller, who has turned out to be a partisan hack, and hired a team of Democratic operatives.
It was also Rosenstein who helped initiate potentially illegal spying on Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election.
And, of course, it was Rosenstein who approved Monday's FBI raid on Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen… which turned up documents and records that NOTHING to do with Russia.
Rosenstein's approval of Monday’s raid enraged Trump… and even rekindled discussions on whether Trump should fire Rosenstein.
Who could blame him?
Cohen was already cooperating with Mueller, and had already turned over thousands of documents related to the Russia investigation (which was the intended scope of Mueller’s probe).
Yet Rosenstein still allowed the raid, which was a blatant attempt to embarrass Cohen and Trump.
Now others are joining Trump’s calls for Rosenstein to be removed from his position… or at the very least, for him to recuse himself.
Constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz told Fox News that Rosenstein must be recused for authorizing the FBI raid on Cohen’s offices.
“If I were a lawyer for Donald Trump, and I am not, I am just saying what I would say about anybody, I would be making a motion in front of a judge,” he explained. “First I’d make it in the Justice Department, to recuse Rosenstein. Then I’d make it in front of a judge. You cannot be a prosecutor and you cannot be a witness in the same case.”
Dershowitz, a self-described ‘lifelong member of the American Civil Liberties Union’ said the most disturbing aspect of the Cohen raid was that the ACLU “went out of its way to justify and defend the raid on the lawyer’s office.”
According to Breitbart, the ACLU published an article celebrating the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s personal lawyer as a victory for the rule of law… not a violation of attorney-client privilege and the president’s constitutional rights.
A victory? Even in the legal world it was considered ‘unjustified.’
"The raid itself was, from everything I can see, unjustified… You use a raid on a lawyer's office as a last resort," Dershowitz added, stating that a judge or a monitor of some kind should have been present to decide which information could be seized.
Under Rosenstein’s watch, Mueller has completely undermined the legal process, and has extended his probe well beyond its initial scope.
It’s finally time for Trump to fire Rosenstein – before things get even more out of hand.
