Top 10 Reasons Why the Mueller Investigation is Unconstitutional (June Update)

by Jim Hoft June 5, 2018

Legal scholar, author and radio host, Mark Levin was on Sean Hannity’s show on FOX News last night. He stated what we at TGP detailed some time ago – the Mueller investigation is unconstitutional.

Levin stated – The defect here is not that every Special Counsel’s appointment is unconstitutional. Every Special Counsel’s appointment is not unconstitutional. This Special Counsel’s appointment is unconstitutional. Because the Deputy Attorney General Mr. Rosenstein hasn’t educated himself against the appointment’s clause. He does not have the power to substitute his will for the President and the Senate.

The Mueller investigation is criminal and corrupt and above all unconstitutional. We agree with Levin and provided a list of 10 reasons in April describing why the Mueller investigation is unconstitutional. (Levin’s argument is in item #2 below)

Here is our list –

1.Rosenstein’s special counsel order identifies collusion as the crime but no such crime exists in US Law.

2. Mueller’s investigation exceeds the scope of special counsel law which requires the scope of a special counsel to be specific. Rosenstein created the special counsel with a scope that is so broad it is not supported by this law.

3. Mueller accepted the special counsel position with known conflicts of interest.

4. Rosenstein and Mueller’s entire team have known conflicts of interest.

5. The Investigation exceeds the scope of Jeff Sessions’ recusal of only 2016 campaign related matters. Mueller’s scope is much broader.

6. Rosenstein’s original authorization to Mueller extended to “Russia government collusion” in 2016 campaign only. By pressing charges against Manafort for 2006 actions, Mueller’s scope is much broader.

7. Rosenstein does not have authorization over tax crimes. Only the Assistant Attorney General in charge of Tax Division can authorize indictments of tax crimes.

8. Rosenstein’s letter tells Mueller only to look to Rosenstein for clarification of Mueller’s authorization. Rosenstein is not the Attorney General of the United States, and could not monopolize supervision of Mueller for matters that did not relate to Sessions’ recusal.

9. By Rosenstein issuing his expanded authorization to Mueller in secret, Rosenstein created a secret inquisitor, unelected and un-appointed by elected officials, with all the powers of the federal criminal law enforcement, but none of the democratic checks and balances.

10. The special counsel law requires that the Attorney General create the special counsel when a criminal investigation is warranted. There was no reason for Rosenstein to create the special counsel that could not have been addressed with other means, if necessary...

Because President Trump had committed no crimes, there was no reason to create the special counsel in the first place. Some may argue this and say Rosenstein had every right to create the special counsel but now we know that Rosenstein created the special counsel and appointed former FBI Head Robert Mueller to lead the investigation because they wanted unlimited resources to investigate the President and to remove him from power by any means possible.

For political reasons President Trump is not shutting down the unconstitutional and corrupt Mueller investigation at this time but AG Jeff Sessions has every right and even the duty to rein in on it or shut it down.

One thing to remember about Sessions’ recusal: Sessions only recused himself from “any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States.” This recusal letter limits the scope of Sessions’ recusal to the 2016 campaigns; it does not authorize Sessions’ recusal for anything beyond that. Constitutionally, Sessions has a “duty to direct and supervise litigation” conducted by the Department of Justice. Ethically, professionally, and legally, Sessions cannot ignore his supervisory obligations for cases that are not related to the “campaigns for President.”

For the above reasons, we are still in a constitutional crisis. If AG Sessions will not uphold the law per his duties per the constitution, then Sessions should go! America cannot stand with an AG that does not uphold his duties and obligations and who allows this unconstitutional witch hunt to continue!

1.Rosenstein’s special counsel order identifies collusion as the crime but no such crime exists in US Law.
((quoting from The New Yorker, https://www.newyorker.com/news/dail...t-of-justice-thinks-that-collusion-is-a-crime))

. . .Mueller’s subsequent actions give a hint of his own interpretation of the subject. In February, he obtained an indictment of thirteen Russian citizens and three Russian entities for using social media to help Trump win the election. The key charge in the case, which is called conspiracy to defraud the United States, is spelled out this way in the indictment:

Defendants, together with others known and unknown to the Grand Jury, knowingly and intentionally conspired to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of State in administering federal requirements for disclosure of foreign involvement in certain domestic activities.​

This case, of course, only deals with Russian defendants. But if Mueller were able to prove that Americans worked with the Russians in this kind of endeavor—that is, if he can prove that Americans colluded with the Russians—then he could bring a similar charge against them. . .

seriously?

you seem to have left out the part where Mueller said that neither the GOP nor the Dems were helped but rather the Russians gave grief to both parties

maybe if Mueller has something other than dems on his staff fake news would have to stop spouting their lies

maybe try reading or listening to actual news instead of fake news

yes

I actually said that.

the Russians were unbiased in their meddling and helped no one do anything

the New Yorker has some funny cartoons from time to time.

when you have crass comments and absolutely filthy names being called by these people against even Trump's daughter, you have to think abit and realize what is really going on. the hatred is without parallel. they live for the double standard...do as I say not as I do

It's not as though the op's source is unbiased and accurate. Just providing the counterargument to a spurious claim.

well you call it spurious but the country is divided on that

what I said about Mueller's dem team and disgusting name calling by tv personalities on the left, is not spurious

and neither is the fact that when Mueller first came out with his 'news', he also stated that the Russians gave equal time to both parties with regards to interfering on social media

I would agree with the sentiment that it seems many dems cannot get over the fact that Hillary did not win

people need to remember that some actual collusion went on with Hillary and Bernie...she basically undercut him and bounced him out of the running

so easily forgotten it seems

If Mueller had any sense he would shut down his farcical nonsense which, has already cost close to 20 million dollars. He should be asked to pay that back out of his own pocket.
