Move along. Nothing to see here, folks.
On May 19, FOX News’ Gregg Jarrett wrote an opinion piece for FOX News entitled “Why Robert Mueller Should Resign as Special Counsel” in the “Russian interference with America’s election” investigation. In short, Jarrett said the following:
Robert Mueller has a serious conflict of interest that should disqualify him from serving as special counsel.
He has had a long and close relationship with someone who will surely become a pivotal witness –James Comey.
No one doubts Mueller’s sterling credentials. That is not the issue. He is eminently qualified. The problem arises in his duty to fairly and objectively evaluate the evidence he gathers.
That makes the news released today that former FBI Director James Comey, who was recently fired by President Trump, even more strange and suspicious.
Comey will be meeting to “consult with” Mueller, in secret, ahead of his testimony.
NEW: James Comey will consult with special counsel Robert Mueller before testifying at Senate Intel Committee, aide confirms to @AliABCNews.

Something stinks to high heaven, and it’s not rotten eggs.
What do you think about this news that Mueller and Comey will “consult in private” prior to Comey’s testimony?
