Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is not just uncovering crimes committed by the Trump campaign but ensuring that foreign involvement in our democracy is identified and punished, infers Simon Tisdall of The Guardian. Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos and Paul Manafort, all of whom worked for Trump, have been indicted. The president has now resorted to undermining the investigation in the media. Conservative outlets have attacked Mueller, trying to hurt his credibility. All Americans should hope that this investigation may come to an end and reveal the full truth of Russia’s election meddling.
There is a lot of evidence that suggests that the Mueller investigation involves many agents that are biased against the president and have ties to Hillary Clinton, argues James S. Robbins of USA Today. Peter Strzok was removed from the team because he exchanged anti-Trump texts with another investigator. Mueller’s team tried to downplay this, even hiding it from congressional inquiries. Nine members of the investigation have donated to Democratic political campaigns, including those of Hillary Clinton and Obama. The Mueller probe seems to have involved biased agents that should not have been on such a crucial investigation.
