The key to Levin’s argument is the capacity in which Mueller was hired and the authority (unlimited at this point) he has, that makes his appointment different from other special counsels. Mueller is acting in the capacity and authority of a US Attorney or “principled officer” as Levin explains. Those with this sort of power under the Appointment Clause (Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the Constitution) have to go through a Senate confirmation process just like any other officer appointed.
AG Rosenstein (that’s right AG, because Jeff Sessions is not really running the DOJ) wrote the memo recommending Comey’s termination and then appointed his and Comey’s friend, Bob Mueller, to investigate Pres Trump over claims of collusion, NOT A CRIME, and obstruction of justice. Since then Mueller has expanded his investigation to more or less go after anyone for anything. To this day those who have been indicted are over issues of perjury, tax evasion and other matters unrelated to the election let alone working with the Russians. Furthermore for a special counsel to be appointed a crime has to have been committed where the SC’s mission would be defined, scope and power is limited, whereas Mueller’s is unlimited.
There was no crime, again collusion isn’t a crime, those who think otherwise produce the statute saying so. The Pres has not obstructed justice by firing Comey because the DOJ is under the Executive Branch where POTUS can hire and fire people for any reason.. as Comey himself pointed out!
This entire witch must be shut down. A federal criminal investigation should be launched against all parties involved who initiated this soft coup from Rosenstein to Mueller, John Brennan, Sally Yates, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, Loretta Lynch to name a few and most definitely barrack hussein benito milhous obama!
