All the News That Fits The Agenda: CNN cut away from Senate testimony on possible bias and conflicts of interest by special counsel Robert Mueller, just as Lindsay Graham started asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about Mueller hiring three attorneys (actually four) who had donated to Democratic presidential candidates. One was even a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation. Her job: stonewalling Freedom of Information Act requests on info about Hillary’s private email server, which I still suspect was the entire reason she had a private email server in the first place.

Mueller is under increasing pressure to step down for two reasons: first, it’s not clear what he’s even investigating, considering high officials have already admitted they’ve found no evidence of any Russian collusion or obstruction of justice. Second, Mueller not only has a very close relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, who would be one of his top witnesses, but Comey has admitted leaking his notes of a conversation with the President to the New York Times to spur the appointment of a special counsel, who just happens to be his old colleague, mentor and friend of 15 years. Mueller even helped Comey vet his written statement to the Senate.

Legal experts have pointed out that this could mean possible violations of several federal laws including 28 CFR 45.2, "Disqualification arising from personal or political relationship;" and 28 USC Section 528, which requires the disqualification of any DOJ officer from an investigation if his or her participation “may result in a personal, financial, or political conflict of interest, or the appearance thereof.” A lot of pundits and Republicans are cautioning President Trump not to fire Mueller, but it’s now apparent that anything he produces will be tainted by the suspicion of bias toward Comey and against Trump (ironic, considering he’s supposed to be investigating “collusion.”) In light of that, Mr. Mueller should do the right thing and fire himself.

    The most perverse way of distorting the news is by what they choose to NOT report--and choose to report over and over ad nauseum.

    Thank you for all you do. The sooner we have a true independent council, and/or drop this foolish agenda the better. They have not found anything in a year on something that was created from a lie. And after today, it is time for all the lies to stop before anything else happens, or God forbid another person is hurt or even killed!

    Under every rock there seems to be a corrupt Democrat. How did the swamp get so slimy with these critters?

    Thank you for keeping me informed on such important events. The MSM is not to be believed.

    Mr. Huckabee, It is as you say, all news that fits the agenda. A considerable amount of time has been spent trying to discredit this administration. If the same effort had been spent on the former one, people would be in jail, out of office or in the best case scenario, never even allowed to run. When the news cuts away for possible bias and/or conflict of interest it tells me, and should tell everyone, that that news agency is no longer interested in presenting real news but is trying to further an agenda by a party or parties involved in the news. The presentation of sensational news stories that "just happen to occur" when things are not going well for party with the agenda is suspicious at best. Thank you for keeping on top of things.
