WSJ Editorial Board Calls for Robert Mueller to Step Down After FBI Agentís Anti-Trump Texts
breitbart ^ | ADAM SHAW

Posted on 12/07/2017 8:25:38 AM PST by davikkm

The Wall Street Journal increased the pressure on embattled FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Tuesday with a scathing op-ed from its editorial board, calling on Mueller to resign over the controversy surrounding a lead investigator’s anti-Trump texts. The New York Times and the Washington Post reported over the weekend that Mueller dismissed FBI agent Peter Strzok over anti-Trump texts he sent to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an extramarital affair.

Since then, outlets have reported that Strzok was involved in the interview of former national security Michael Flynn, who was charged last week for lying to the FBI. Strzok was also involved in the Hillary Clinton email probe, where he reportedly interviewed two top Clinton aides and was later behind the change of language Comey used to describe her behavior — changing the language from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

The Journal’s editorial board argued Tuesday that the scandal is reason for Mueller to stand down, noting that Mueller and the Justice Department had kept the information from investigators in the House, and refused to allow Strzok to be interviewed.

Mueller, Comey and Strzok are now the crookedest cops in America. Their collective stain upon the FBI is permanent.

There is no justice in America when the corrupt “political class” is allowed to break the laws as they please.

That tactic won’t work. We should demand he step down because he ignored sexual harassment reports from agents under his supervision. He created and maintained a hostile work environment. That is the mechanism that is currently the hot topic and has the best chance of working.

Correct. After 8 years of the Obama Regime, the FBI is but one agency infested with Hillary sycophants who would lie, steal, cheat (and screw) their way to topple Trump.

A whole bunch of Powerful People in Government conspire to engage in a Coup De’tat and either remove or severely diminish a duly elected President of the United States, and when their actions become known the WSJ thinks they should just Resign??

What’s wrong with 12 feet of rope??

I agree. Then the b!tch could send her lap dog Sessions home and take over the DOJ.

Probably more because of their story about Mueller going after some Trump financials that he hadn’t done yet - that fake news bit really made them mad because if Mueller had been “doing his job right” he would be knee deep in Trump financials......

This is when a SHTF scenario would be most welcome.

No more wringing our hands over the ruling class getting away with EVERYTHING Scott free. They would be dealt with wild Wild West style. Swinging from a post. The ruling class would be devestated because there are some of us out here who are sick of it to a point that will make them rue the day they even thought of screwing the tax payers of this country.

Congressional (and most government) committees are about as useful as teats on a boar. Their sole purpose seems to be as a signal to donors to direct funds (bribes) toward the right elected jerk. CongressCritter Blowhard is on the Energy Committee and I have energy interests, so I donate to Blowhard’s campaign.

I was yelling at Jordan to go get him! If he’s not careful Wray will find himself in contempt of congress. It would seem — Hiding the paper work is obstruction of justice!
