I think one of the worst things anyone can do for this American Republic is abuse their power. Overreach. And for their own partisan interests? Gross.
According to The Hill:
It appears, based on who Robert Mueller has surrounding him that he is more interested in digging up dirt and prying into Trump’s life–and those around him. Not on preserving justice and the law.
Much has been written about the prosecutorial prowess of Robert Mueller’s team assembled to investigate allegations of Russia’s involvement in the Trump campaign. Little has been said of the danger of prosecutorial overreach and the true history of Mueller’s lead prosecutor.
What was supposed to have been a search for Russia’s cyberspace intrusions into our electoral politics has morphed into a malevolent mission targeting friends, family and colleagues of the president. The Mueller investigation has become an all-out assault to find crimes to pin on them — and it won’t matter if there are no crimes to be found. This team can make some.
Many Americans despise President Trump and anyone associated with him. Yet turning our system of justice into a political weapon is a danger we must guard against.
Indeed! Because what happens when someone is in power who uses said power for evil as opposed to good?
Our Founding Fathers knew that expanding the power of the federal government only spelled danger for the future of our republic.
You make one office more powerful, or give one person greater power in a particular situation, and you will never get it back.
Then, whoever enters in later will benefit and may not have the best interests of those he “serves” in mind.
But we can see what Mueller is doing. He appointed his longtime friend, Andrew Weissman:
He is not just a “tough” prosecutor. Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted “victories” for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law.
Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.
Next, Weissmann creatively criminalized a business transaction between Merrill Lynch and Enron. Four Merrill executives went to prison for as long as a year. Weissmann’s team made sure they did not even get bail pending their appeals, even though the charges Weissmann concocted, like those against Andersen, were literally unprecedented.
Weissmann’s prosecution devastated the lives and families of the Merrill executives, causing enormous defense costs, unimaginable stress and torturous prison time. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the mass of the case.
Weissmann quietly resigned from the Enron Task Force just as the judge in the Enron Broadband prosecution began excoriating Weissmann’s team and the press began catching on to Weissmann’s modus operandi.
Weissman comprises the worst nightmares of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams.
This is not someone who is interested in justice. He is interested in serving his own personal, partisan interests — to the detriment of the American republic.
Justice is not being served — the liberal agenda is.
Wouldn’t you say?
