For John, BLUF: This is NOT about Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but about the Department of Justice, or "Main Justice". Nothing to see here; just move along.
They want a probe into “obvious conflicts of interest” in the Department of Justice.
From The Huffington Post, By Ms Willa Frej, 12 December 2017.
Here are two key paragraphs:
″The Department of Justice and FBI cannot ignore the multiple problems that have been created by these obvious conflicts of interests,” Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s lawyers, told Axios on Monday night after the Fox report. “These new revelations require the appointment of a special counsel to investigate.”So, is the Department of Justice living up to its English Motto.
. . .
Nevertheless, the president’s legal team said they trust Mueller and want to “get to the finish line” with him. They said they plan to fully cooperate with Mueller’s investigation, confident that Trump will be cleared of wrongdoing.
Not everyone things so. There is a concern about a Conan the Barbarian desire on the part of the people in Main Justice to win, whatever it takes. A view that if you weren't inherently a criminal you would never have come to our attention, so we have to deal with you for being the criminal you are.
