I once saw a clip of someone saying that it will be very difficult finding anyone as qualified as Mueller. I find that hard to believe.
There are a large number of highly skilled prosecutors in this country. Is it possible that Mueller is not conflicted but incompetent?
Anyone that hires federal agents stupid enough to use their work phones to trash politicians in text lacks basic competence. His hires are – too arrogant or dumb to not completely trash his investigation. Not to get off subject but FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a Barak Obama holdover, appeared to have known about FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his decision making to go after President Trump and save Hillary Clinton’s campaign and said nothing. His head should roll too.
The credibility of the investigation has been raked over the coals the past few weeks. The number of partisan and biased people he hired for his team just makes it all look like a sham, and Strzok is the icing on the cake. He alone by himself is enough to make it look bad, but he is one of many.

When asked if Mueller has a conflict of interest “as the former head of the FBI and a friend of James Comey,” 54 percent responded that the “relationship” between the two amounts to a conflict of interest, including 70 percent of Republicans, 53 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats.
Comey succeeded Mueller as FBI director and the two have been described as “brothers in arms” for their working relationship, which dates back to the early 2000s, although the extent of their personal relationship is unclear.
Comey and Mueller were among the senior law enforcement officials who threatened to resign over a Bush-era domestic surveillance program, an episode that culminated with Comey rushing to the hospital bed of then-Attorney General John Ashcroft to beat White House officials who were on their way there.
“The special counsel has serious perception issues as a clear majority now see him as having a conflict of interest,” said Mark Penn, co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey.
DC is like a recycling center. There are so many other federal prosecutors who could’ve been chosen for this assignment. Maybe they would’ve been smart enough to hire people who weren’t so politically biased.
Which is another thing that irritates me about Mueller that makes me think even his investigation is a sham and witch hunt? He said he would follow the leads and prosecute whatever crimes he finds. I see no indication of him following the trail that leads to Democrats.

Tell you what sickens me is how the Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein goes before Congress and talks in circles and avoids to answer straightforward questions and Congress lets him get away with it just like Lois Lerner.
The whole idea of a special prosecutor is to avoid the appearance of bias, but the special prosecutor is plagued with credibility and image problems. The public isn’t going to trust the results any more than we trusted the results of the Hillary email scandal which was swept under the rug by the former administration.
