KOMMONSENTSJANE – WHERE HAS KEN STARR BEEN FOR EIGHT YEARS WITH OBAMA LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

This is unbelievable – to think we have Mueller who is investigating the President under false pretenses and we have Republican Collins spouting off that they may need to pass a law to protect Mueller.  What is going on with those people – have they lost their minds?  I have not seen Collins say one word for eight years about Obama and all of the lies he told the American people; and, in fact went right along with Obama.

Mueller should be investigating Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, Obama, Comey, and the DOJ/FBI for the real investigation with all of them colluding with Russia where  you do have the proof.

GOP divided over protecting Mueller.

Grounds for impeachment if Trump lied about trying to fire Mueller – Ken Starr

II Donald Trump lied to the American people when he called reports he tried to fire Robert Mueller “fake news”, that would be grounds for impeachment, the independent counsel who investigated the Clinton White House said on Sunday.

Ken Starr, who used Bill Clinton’s false statements about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky as grounds for impeachment, told ABC’s This Week: “Lying to the American people is a serious issue that has to be explored. I take lying to the American people very, very seriously, so absolutely.”

Starr said: “That is something Bob Mueller should look at.”

Mueller, the special counsel, is investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, including alleged collusion between Russian officials and Trump aides, and numerous instances of possible obstruction of justice by the president.

The New York Times and others reported this week that in June 2016, Trump ordered White House counsel Donald McGahn to fire Mueller. McGahn reportedly said he would resign rather than carry our the order, which he said would have a devastating effect on Trump’s presidency.

Trump publicly dismissed the Times report, calling it “fake news”. Since June, the president has repeatedly denied publicly that he was considering firing Mueller. White House officials have also repeatedly claimed the president has not discussed firing him.

Kellyanne Conway told ABC in August: “He’s not discussed firing Bob Mueller.” Trump’s chief counsel, John Dowd, told USA Today the same month: “That’s never been on the table, never. It’s a manifestation of the media.”

Trump told reporters at the same time: “I haven’t given it any thought.” He added: “Well, I’ve been reading about it from you people. You say, ‘Oh, I’m going to dismiss him.’ No, I’m not dismissing anybody.”

Some Republicans said on Sunday that reports Trump had to be talked down from firing Mueller were a serious concern and should prompt congressional action.

Attempting to fire Mueller would mean “the end of [Trump’s] presidency,” the South Carolina senator Lindsay Graham, a sponsor of potential legislation, said on ABC.

“It’s pretty clear to me that everybody in the White House knows that it’d be the end of President Trump’s presidency if he fired Mr Mueller,” Graham said.

Graham also said: “I see no evidence that President Trump wants to fire Mr Mueller now.”

Susan Collins told CNN’s State of the Union it “probably wouldn’t hurt” for Congress to pass a law protecting Mueller.

Other senior party figures downplayed the reports. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy sought to highlight concerns on the right about alleged political bias among law enforcement officials and agencies investigating Russia and the president’s aides.

He told NBC’s Meet the Press: “I don’t think there’s a need for legislation right now to protect Mueller.”

Asked if there was “a red line the president could cross with you” regarding the special counsel, McCarthy said the question was unfair.

“The president and his team have fully cooperated,” he said. “You’re making hypotheticals.”

McCarthy did not directly answer questions about whether he was concerned about reports Trump had wanted to fire Mueller in June. He had confidence in Mueller, he said, but had “questions about others within the FBI and [Department of Justice]”.

Asked if he believed there was some kind of “deep state that’s out to get the president”, as some on the right claim, McCarthy said he had never believed that but said some recent reports about the FBI would “give anybody doubt”.

“You’re painting a conspiracy,” host Chuck Todd said.

“I think the public has the right to know,” McCarthy answered.

Collins, a leading Republican moderate, told CNN: “It probably wouldn’t hurt for us to pass one of those bills [to protect Mueller from being fired].

“There are some constitutional issues with those bills. but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to put that extra safeguards in place given the latest stories.”

Collins said she had confidence in deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russia investigation after Jeff Sessions recused himself because of his failure to disclose his own contacts with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller after Trump fired FBI director James Comey last May. He has reportedly been the focus of Trump’s ire in recent days.

(All of these people – including Rosenstein, are all lying bastards.)

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short appeared on Fox News Sunday. Asked if Trump would sign a bill that would make it more difficult or even impossible for Mueller to be fired, he said: “I don’t know, hypothetically.”

Trump insisted this week he was “looking forward” to being interviewed soon by Mueller.

Why would you be interviewed by Mueller – who is a liar?
