President Trump’s team wants to add another shell to the Russian-doll of the election meddling probe by appointing a second special counsel to investigate investigators.
Jay Sekulow, part of Trump’s legal team, told Axios Tuesday that connections of a demoted Justice Department official mandated a new layer of oversight.
His statement comes after a Fox News report that Bruce Ohr, demoted last week for meetings with research firm Fusion GPS, is married to someone paid by the company for work last year.
“The Department of Justice and FBI cannot ignore the multiple problems that have been created by these obvious conflicts of interests. These new revelations require the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate,” Sekulow said.

…this is a general all-purpose message, and should not be seen as targeting any individual I am responding to…
Stop talking about it and start doing it.
You always say you’ll never tell the enemy what you’re going to do or when. Why would you let (if it’s worse case scenario) an enemy embedded in your government dig in their defenses, and prepare plans and counter-measures?
Well its about f*cking time And I would put one Rudolph Giuliani on the case.
Does the Special Counsel have to be an American Citizen ?
We’ve finally got a fighter on our side.
This guy is far better than I thought he would be, and I thought he would be pretty good.
Bet election ever!
Watching the Left including the GOPe melt down…, priceless.
Implement the same procedures on the FBI that are implemented on a company suspected of defrauding the Federal government.
Actually… I think that this IS Trumps stealth strategy…..Mueller cannot afford to have Trump rummaging through his stuff……so I see it as a knife to throat overture to Mueller to wrap this up.
Probe Russia investigators?
They are saintly, wonderful, brilliant, intelligent, merciful, without fault, and so noble as to be worthy of a title as such in violation of the Constitution written by those old and selfish white men.
Get Me Roger Stone!
This Mueller investigation staffed by the gang that couldn’t shoot straight has all the markings of a Dr Seuss fable.
“…And I would put one Rudolph Giuliani on the case….”
Damn good idea. It is sooooooo overdue.
Or Chris Christie. Let him contribute *something*.
I have long maintained that Trump may be famed as a negotiator but that was often when he had little to bargain with. He has more leverage than he has ever dreamed of now. We don’t want another Obama politicizing everything but hopefully Trump’s handbag fights with the press and everyone else are sleight of hand while he twists arms in the Deep State. If you’ve ever dealt with federal bureaucrats you know this may be a hard slog but here is the silver lining: most federal bureaucrats are qualified to do nothing else which means they can not earn a living anywhere else which means they fear being cast out of the nest. Hopefully Trump is aware of their desperation and uses it to his advantage.
That’s a great question. However, I encourage it. If Mueller is running a smear operation, then expose it. If not, then this will show that his operation is doing what needs to be done.
Who would pick this new Special Counsel? Jeff Sessions? Rod Rosenstein?
