NJ Star-Ledger: the campaign to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reached a shrill and desperate phase, as some believe it is more important to protect Donald Trump's interests than to establish how and why an adversarial government influenced a presidential election.

The goal is to dismiss any findings damaging to the president as political bias; to invent corruption in the highest echelons of law enforcement, notably in the FBI; and to preempt any discovery of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia with distractions.

Much of it is a whingeing chorus of victimhood, slithering from a Twitter account, which invariably overlooks pertinent facts.

So as 2018 begins and the second year of Mueller's investigation unfolds, we need to acknowledge a baseline of immutable truths, and review what we have learned from the man Republicans recently considered the most scrupulous public servant in government.

First, he has secured two guilty pleas. Both Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos lied to the FBI about contact with Russians, with Flynn asking Sergey Kislyak during the transition to eschew any sanctions-related escalation. If the subsequent lie to the FBI about that conversation was ordered by Trump (as NBC reported), Trump also may be in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from conducting foreign policy.

Second, Mueller indicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates for laundering tens of millions from a foreign adversary while they were also running a U.S. presidential campaign. That will never cease to amaze.

The investigation is biased if you look at the members of Mueller's team. Peter Strzok, Lisa Page (both since fired) as this is part of their text message exchange about Trump:  Both agents were open about their resentment for the then-candidate, swapping praise of Clinton and insults of Trump in a text string that casts an even longer shadow over Mueller’s investigation. “Omg, [Trump’s] an idiot,” Strzok says in agreement with Page, who had much stronger words for the president (too profane to repeat). “God, Trump is a loathsome human,” Page replies at one point. “Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” she tells Strzok, months before both were called on to dig deeper into any role Russia might have played in the election.

Another Mueller deputy is Jeannie Rhee, the former personal attorney of Ben Rhodes, the Obama deputy national security adviser. She also provided legal counsel to the Clinton Foundation and was also a generous donor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

In yet another disturbing case, another person on Mueller’s legal team, Aaron Zebley, turns out to have been until 2015 the lawyer for Justin Cooper. Who is Cooper? Oh, just the IT staffer who set up Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized server at her home. After Hillary Clinton’s email scandal broke out, Zebley was identified as the person who smashed Clinton’s BlackBerries with a hammer in fear they would be subpoenaed.

But the most disturbing case yet is that of Bruce Ohr, who was until recently the fourth-ranking Justice Department official. Ohr has been demoted, now that’s it’s been learned he had unauthorized contacts with Fusion GPS [where his wife worked], the dirt-digging outfit responsible for the Clinton-funded, anti-Trump “dossier.”

DOJ investigations must not be tainted by individuals imposing their own political prejudices, and to make sure those opinions do not influence their actions. Obviously that did not happen in this case.

two agents didn't influence an entire investigation. The majority of the NY FBI office were anti-Clinton during her investigation. All the top people in the Mueller investigation are Republican and have contributed to Republican candidates. Some text messages between 2 agents in a relationship mean nothing, especially since they also texted derogatory things about Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, etc. The FBI is and has always been a conservative institution. Just because someone (gasp) has political views, it doesn't mean they can't act fairly. On top of that, Mueller removed Sztrok from the investigation. You're grasping at straws here, and with good reason. Mueller is closing in.

I already stated Strzok  and page were removed, but you conveniently ignored the rest of the DEMOCRATIC investigators on the team all Hillary supporters, or former employees of hers.  Also six of Mueller’s team of 15 lawyers were Hillary supporters. The team should be made up of neither Dems or Repubs, but Independents, Libertarians, etc.

And no I am not grasping at straws as I am not a Trump fan as I wanted Jindahl, not that Democrat turned Republican Trump. And the investigation has turned away, for the time being, from Russian collusion to obstruction as that is what the 2 who have been charged have been indicted with.

Facts are not partisan.  Mueller has been in law enforcement his entire adult life and will make a list and check it twice.  Trump has been a con man his entire life and only ran for president to improve his brand, not to actually get elected, because he knew that the stuff a private citizen can sweep under the rug will be there for all to see if he got elected.

In the end, all the times Trump acted as money-launderer for the Russians will be revealed, and then Trump will go down in flames to make Nixon's demise look like an anemic sparkler.

Just because he is in LE does not mean he is not biased. He left the FBI 4 years ago, an agency he USED to lead. He is close pals with Comey a person that Trump fired. And if you think neither of these will not influence his decisions than I have some swamp land for sale.

Of course Trump is a con-man he is a CEO of corporation isn't he? There are not to many CEO's that are not con-men/women.

Your pre-emptive attack on the findings of Trump's guilt have been noted.  Shoot all the messengers you want but the truth will prevail.
