I don’t know why those who find themselves targets of the Mueller investigation keep trying to get courts to throw out the charges on the grounds that his appointment as Special Counsel was illegal. They’ve lost every attempt so far and they’re going to continue to lose. The latest is a judge who was appointed by Trump himself.
District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich rejected an attempt to have special counsel Robert Mueller removed from the Russia investigation.
Attorneys for Russian oligarch-owned Concord Management and Consulting LLC, which has been indicted by Mueller, recently argued in court that the special counsel’s appointment is unconstitutional because he was not appointed by the president or attorney general.But in a 41-page ruling released on Monday, Dabney rejected the defendant’s argument.
Dabney was appointed by Trump, who will no doubt be attacking him on Twitter soon. He only hires the very best! Their arguments are just crap. The appointment of Mueller was completely legal and in line with DOJ guidelines. They can keep wasting their time making the same argument over and over and getting smacked down by every judge they try it with, but that’s all they’re doing is wasting time.
