Skip to comments.[Vanity] Can We Defund the Special Counsel?

Can we defund the Special Counsel? My wife is thinking that with the end of the budget year, perhaps Congress should simply put in DOJ's budget that no money can be used for the Special Counsel's office or activities.
I like the idea. Can we do that?
Better to defund the don and fbi and make everyone reinferview for their jobs
If the GOP was to do anything at all, it would increase Mueller’s funding and expand his scope.
The blank check my be straight from Congress.
It won’t happen with the composition of this Congress. They can’t even agree to defund Planned Parenthood.
Trump is better off firing Sessions and backfilling the position under the Vacancies Act. The ideal situation is for Sessions to unrecuse himself and fire Mueller, but the AG has no balls or is otherwise compromised.
” I like the idea. Can we do that?”
Can the Congress do it? Yes it can. Would the President be able to sign it, most likely not, because it would be seen as a naked attempt to shut down an investigation on his activities.
Not with the Congress we currently have.
Too many Bush League Republicans that want to get rid of Trump as much as the Democrats.
If we could do that we could defund Planned Parenthood and fund the wall.
We can’t until we elect better Senators and Congressmen.
Just because you can doesn't mean you should. It's blowing up on its own anyway.
I really, really think we ought to defund the special prosecutors office completely.
And use the money, for building a wall on our southern border.
I’m sure there are a (lot) of people who agree with this.
ha ha ha Now THAT is funny.
Not necessary. All you need is an AG and the whole team can be gone tomorrow.
Except most republicans are anti Trump. You can tell by the deafening silence from them. They defended obama more than they are Trump.
They would probably get a grant from Soros to cover the shortfall.
Won’t work. Mueller will just set up a GoFundMe page just like Strzok and the libtards will shower him with money. Probably more than they get now.
THE ENTIRE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO BE DEFUNDED AT THIS TIME.
Next year, maybe. The current gang of RINOs can’t even defund Planned Abortionhood.
Mueller should be put on trial for treason and imprisoned.
You know, I can’t think of one valid reason to oppose your statement in any form. Which means, I agree.
EVERYTHING hinges on the midterms.
If Pubs hold the house, Mueller’s investigation shuts down.
There will no longer be any chance of impeachment.
Also, the Republicans will all hop on the Trump train and POTUS agenda will start moving.
He will have shown that he is the defacto king of the GOP.
No one will dare oppose him
One stroke of the Tweet and their career will be over.
If we lose the House,
Lord have mercy on us.
It’s going to be 2 years of impeachment hearing after hearing.
