Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed the first charges in his investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election. The nature of the charges are sealed and arrests may take place as soon as Monday.
As the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election rolls on, new pressure is building on Robert Mueller to resign.
Republican Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) believes Mueller’s resignation is long over due. Even Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), who in the past has been bearish on backing the Special Counsel’s resignation, says he supports it if the evidence exists.
Calls for Mueller’s resignation stem from his friendship with FBI head James Comey, which Franks says is a clear conflict of interest.
FOX News reports:
“If the facts that you just laid out are true, then somebody with Bob Mueller’s integrity will step aside and should — if in fact those facts, as you laid them out, are true,” Gov. Christie told “Fox & Friends,” in relation to reports of conflicts of interest.
Calls for Mueller resign don’t only stem from “conflicts of interest,” but due to his alleged role in the Clinton-Uranium One deal.
