>> Special Counsel Robert Mueller is seen by Democrats as one of their greatest hopes to unseat President Trump.
If Mueller even hints that Trump colluded with Russia or in some way violated the law in firing James Comey, you can bet impeachment will be right around the corner.
>> And congressional leaders are so certain Mueller will find something that they’ve threatened to impeach Trump anyway if he even thinks about firing the special counsel.
>> But now Dems have a BIG problem, because Mueller himself might be in violation of federal law by continuing to head this witch hunt.
>> From The Daily Caller:
>>>> Republican Arizona Rep. Trent Franks says that Robert Mueller is in “clear violation” of federal law prohibiting a special counsel from having a conflict of interest and therefore must immediately resign as special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation.
>>>> Mueller’s reported friendship with former FBI director James Comey presents a clear conflict of interest, according to Franks, who is a senior member on the House Judiciary Committee. Federal law defines a conflict of interest as: “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution.”
Rep. Franks: Special Counsel Mueller Must Resign, He’s in ‘Clear Violation of Federal Code’

(CNSNews.com) — Because of his “long, close relationship” with former FBI Director James Comey, the Special Counsel for Russia Investigation Robert Mueller apparently is in violation of federal law concerning “conflict of interest,” and he must resign, said House Representative Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who serves on the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee.
In an Aug. 1 statement, Rep. Franks cited federal law (28 CFR 600.7), which apparently “prohibits Mueller from serving if he has a ‘conflict of interest.'” Even if there is an “appearance of a conflict,” it qualifies as a violation. The Code of Federal Regulations defines a conflict of interest as the following: “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution” (28 CFR 45.2).
