Commenting on the ongoing probe into alleged collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is "irredeemably tainted and compromised," and stressed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to get back in the game and "take back control of this Justice Department from the Mueller-Rosenstein team."
Rod Rosenstein is the deputy attorney general of the United States. He wrote the memorandum in 2017recommending that FBI Director James Comey be fired, which trigged the special counsel investigation. Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel.
On the June 22 edition of Lou Dobbs Tonight, Tom Fitton said, "The facts are there to call into question the Mueller investigation. … It’s up to Congress, the Justice Department and the FBI to get on the ball and understand the Mueller’s investigation is irredeemably tainted and compromised, and in the least needs to be paused till we figure out just how much corruption is endemic there."
"We shouldn't wait two more years for another IG [Inspector General] report to tell us what’s rather obvious, that the Mueller investigation is biased and compromised,” he said.
Fitton also stressed the importance of Attorney General Jeff Session getting back in the game. “Right now, as far as I'm concerned, Robert Mueller is running the Justice Department with respect to everything related to Russia and congressional oversight. Jeff Sessions has to come back in and start running things.”
“Jeff Sessions should come back in, un-recuse himself, which he should've done a long time ago and take back control of this Justice Department from the Mueller-Rosenstein team,” said Fitton.
