The best thing about the Russia investigation so far is this: in an attempt to dig up dirt on Trump, all the FBI has found is crimes that the Democrats have committed. It’s not going so well for the libs.
But of all those crimes, no one expected that one of them would lead back to Mueller himself.
Naturally, if you’ve been implicated in a crime, and are later put in charge of investigating crimes related to that first crime…you can’t be expected to be impartial.

The Daily Caller reports:
Three Republican congressmen introduced a resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller to recuse himself from the probe into Russia’s interference in the election.
Mueller found evidence of criminal activity while he was acting FBI director that could have been relevant to the deal but did not bring any charges, and Mueller should therefore recuse himself from the current investigation.
“These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised,” Gaetz said. “He must step down immediately.”
Conservative Republicans demand Mueller recuse himself over uranium deal. Good first step. Shut it down. https://t.co/jevJLgAD1B

The crimes that Mueller discovered, mind you, weren’t miniscule. In fact, they were the stuff of spy novels.
The FBI had gathered extensive evidence that the Kremlin compromised employees within an American uranium trucking firm in an effort to expand Russian access to U.S. uranium.
This was, too, before the deal was approved. And we already know about the other two troubling aspects of the deal – one, that Hillary was receiving millions in Russian payouts through the Clinton Foundation; and two, that Bill was receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from Russia as a public speaker.
Money to one Clinton, money to another Clinton, and spies in a uranium trucking company…all before Russia buys a huge chunk of American uranium. Connecting these dots isn’t rocket science.
And Mueller connected them. And yet, he’s still investigating Donald Trump. If he wants to keep his integrity intact, he needs to step down.
Otherwise, Congress might make the decision for him.
