No col­lu­sion; end in­ves­ti­ga­tion

Four­teen State At­tor­neys Gen­eral re­quested U.S. Act­ing At­tor­ney Gen­eral Mathew Whi­taker to re­cuse him­self from over­see­ing Spe­cial Coun­sel Robert Mueller’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Re­cusal shouldn’t and most likely will not hap­pen for good and proper rea­sons.

Mueller’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion has gone nowhere. It has pro­duced zero ev­i­dence af­ter more than 18 months and mil­lions of tax­pay­ers’ dol­lars. There is no ev­i­dent col­lu­sion shown be­tween the Trump cam­paign and Rus­sia’s Vladimir Putin to in­flu­ence the 2016 elec­tion.

The AG’s let­ter to Whi­taker stated, “Your re­cusal is nec­es­sary to main­tain pub­lic trust in the in­tegrity of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion ...”

Wasn’t the pub­lic’s trust in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion’s in­tegrity de­stroyed by Mueller him­self, a long time ago, when at the out­set, he ap­pointed a bi­ased team of noth­ing but par­ti­san anti-Trump in­ves­ti­ga­tors?

With not one iota of ev­i­dence un­cov­ered af­ter all of this time and waste of tax dol­lars, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is seen as hav­ing gone nowhere, with no prospects for the fu­ture.

Con­sider that Mueller’s ap­point­ment was based on false and prob­a­bly il­le­gal doc­u­men­ta­tion, namely the scur­rilous Steele af­fi­davit. Now is the time the in­ves­ti­ga­tion needs to be shut down, hav­ing failed to pro­duce any cred­i­ble ev­i­dence. It is ob­vi­ous that there was no col­lu­sion.

How­ever, there is clear and cred­i­ble ev­i­dence of wrong do­ing and col­lu­sion be­tween the Jus­tice Depart­ment, the FBI, the Clin­ton cam­paign and the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion in the 2016 cam­paign. Paul G. Lit­tle­field
