Trump accuses Democrats of collusion with Russia

Conservatives are unhappy with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe investigating the Trump administration and looking the other way despite allegations against the Hillary Clinton campaign. They say there are Democrats who worked with the Clinton campaign should be charged with election interference but aren’t.

President Donald Trump made his position clear in a string of tweets Thursday.

Conservatives are pointing Mueller to Christopher Steele, a British ex-spy who compiled and imported a dossier intending to prevent then-candidate Trump from winning the presidency. The dossier, which reportedly used Russian intelligence, spread among Washington elites. Mueller, displaying what conservatives call selective prosecution, has not charged Steele with interfering in the 2016 election.

According to The Washington Times, Steele’s stated his intention to destroy then-candidate Trump to Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr. He also compiled a database of the names of people working for the Trump campaign using intelligence that came from Russia.

Despite the allegations against Steele, Mueller in a brief wrote that none of Steele’s actions “remotely compares to [a] systematic, deceptive effort to interfere in our democracy.”

When the Justice Department appointed Mueller in 2017, they specified his role to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” The investigation into the Clinton campaign is noticeably missing from his job description.

Perhaps the reason Mueller is selectively prosecuting Trump associates and turning a blind eye to Clinton’s is because his team is composed of lawyers who supported Clinton in the general election. That’s certainly the way conservatives view the facts when everything is laid out on the table.

    His mission statement was to investigate trump and all his crooked friends,just look at the indictments so far!
    He was NOT ordered by the justice department to investigate H. Clinton there have been too many investigations into her in the last few years that went nowhere and came up empty handed!
    If there were no law breaking on trumps team then how did they get all the indictments?
    Those are not just up to Mueller,he has to present evidence to judges in order to get an indictment!
