GOP snakes Lindsey Graham and Thom Tillis from North Carolina will join with Democrats to introduce a bill to protect Dirty Cop Robert Mueller.
This is why Republicans will lose in a landslide in November.
They can’t keep attacking the president and defending crooked cops and expect voters to turn out to support them.
And, of course, they will blame President Trump for their losses.
The Hill reported:
A group of bipartisan senators is introducing new legislation to limit President Trump’s ability to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) will introduce the legislation, the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, on Wednesday.
The legislation would let Mueller, or any other special counsel, receive an “expedited judicial review” within 10 days of being fired to determine if it was for a “good cause.” If it was determined it wasn’t, he would be reinstated.
It would also codify regulations that only a senior Justice Department official can fire a special counsel and that they must provide the reason in writing.
“We need to ensure not only that special counsel Mueller can complete his work without interference, but that special counsels in future investigations can, too,” Coons said.
Tillis added that the “compromise bipartisan bill helps ensure that special counsels — present or future — have the independence they need to conduct fair and impartial investigations.”
They cannot write law that supercedes the Constitution. He has the authority as Chief Executive, to fire and appoint as he sees fit, those who oversee the agencies that fall under his authority,.
Article 1 Section 2.
They can pass it all they want, POTUS has VETO powers and I'm sure this won't get passed his desk. We really need to rid ourselves of these establishment TRAITORS in our party. FUCK'EM!!
Please tell me how? How can they introduce a bill to protect this guy??? I want to know?????
nice if they took this kind of time to undo ohitlercare or protect the border w/the WALL wouldn' t it
time they all are FIRED
I asked this for a reason, How can they introduce a bill to protect this guy? I have sent this to the network team, so far we have not found any legislation to where they can present a bill to Congress to protect criminal activity.
If they was to do this, it would spark a resistance against this system right here and now!!!
Sens. Graham, Tillis, Booker and Coons, all traitors, are stupid and Mueller agrees. Mueller is trying to get Trump to fire him and these ignorant fools are helping Trump by making it impossible. He (Mueller) thinks he can save face if the investigation is ended this way.
save face he has little to show for his scam of an investigation into what
what is the statute Trump broke? what is being investigated? manafort for money laundering seriously don't be insulting
these clowns need to go we need to fire them all
Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe targeting President Trump has cost the American taxpayer $7 million in five months, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
And, if the media reports are any indication, there’s no end in sight.
So, who have Mueller and his people ensnared so far? Michael Flynn, the former national security advisor, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. This is hardly a surprise; given Flynn’s lobbying for Turkey and undisclosed relationship with Russia, he probably could have gotten worse.
Paul Manafort and his business partner were charged for financial misdeeds that happened before Manafort became Trump’s campaign manager (and Manafort, whom Trump fired relatively quickly, only got the position because the GOP establishment wanted “adult supervision” once it became clear Trump would win the nomination).
Then there was George Papadopoulos, a weird, minor volunteer staffer who lied about his relations with a shifty, self-aggrandizing professor who claimed to have Kremlin connections.
Seven million dollars for that. Money well spent, you say? You probably do, if you’re a liberal.
If you’ve ever had your car broken into, however, you might want to think again.
If you don’t see the connection, let me explain with a little help from the Rand Corporation.
In 2016, the non-profit policy think-tank released a study called “First Estimates of Judicial Costs of Specific Crimes, from Homicide to Theft.” It revealed what it cost to prosecute certain crimes in our judicial system.
“When considering the costs of crime, policymakers and the general public typically think about the tens of thousands of dollars spent annually to house a single prisoner,” the report reads.
“The outlays in judicial and legal services have received far less attention, depriving taxpayers of a broader picture of the dollar impact of major crimes and potential savings from crime reduction measures, according to researchers.”
So, how much does prosecuting these crimes cost?
“Researchers found that every reported homicide, for example, cost the judicial system $22,000 to $44,000. In other categories the costs were estimated at $2,000 to $5,000 for a rape or other sexual assault, $600 to $1,300 for a robbery, $800 to $2,100 for an aggravated assault, $200 to $600 for a burglary, $300 to $600 for larceny/theft, and $200 to $400 for a motor vehicle theft.”
At the low end, that means five months of Mueller’s fishing expedition could have prosecuted 35,000 burglars or car thieves, over 11,000 robbers, 8,750 individuals who allegedly committed aggravated assault, 3,500 alleged rapists, or 318 murderers.
The median judicial cost of larceny/theft is $455. That means 15,000 criminals that could be prosecuted with the money we’ve spent on trying to tie Trump to Russia.
Instead, that $7 million has netted four individuals, two of whom are charged with things that had nothing to do with the Trump campaign, one whose alleged misdeeds led to his firing almost as soon as he was hired, and one minor staffer who lied about contact with a weird academic who claimed he could make meetings happen with the Russians that never materialized.
Dad has been looking into Mueller and one other, there is something missing, no one is so clean that is involved in this Democratic System. Its like be for real, all the scandals posted all over the net and on the news, and the FBI is basically still under the Democratic Control.
So, Trump has not or will not be able to keep his promise.
Shameful of these RINO so called republicans!! They are all Anti-Christian and Jewish People / Anti-USA Capitalism and Constitution!!
