Top Mueller investigator's Democratic ties raise new bias questions

Yet another member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigative team is facing questions over potential bias after it emerged that she used to represent ex-Obama aide Ben Rhodes and the Clinton Foundation.

Jeannie Rhee is a former partner at WilmerHale—the high-profile law firm where Mueller worked prior to taking on the special counsel role. She is one of at least three attorneys who followed Mueller from WilmerHale.

At the firm, Rhee focused on representing people in government investigations, including white-collar criminal probes and criminal and civil fraud matters.

But this week, details of Rhee’s client relationships emerged, revealing that she represented Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

Rhee's connection to Rhodes was first revealed on Fox News by Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, where the primetime host cited it as more evidence that Mueller’s team is biased.

Incredible! And no one should be surprised that we find Mueller's activist Democratic team to be full of people having worked for Obama and Clinton, having defended them, having deflected, and even corrupted investigations. Now, they get to try a knock-out coup against Trump. Wow.

All should be fired, from Mueller on down. And a special counsel should be appointed to specifically investigate the investigation team.

And, get this, Rhee's "husband", Christopher Scalafani, took her last name when they got married! He, too, has past with Holder and Durbin.

Did everyone think these connections would not come out?!

I have heard all the arguments that Jeff Feckless really has Mueller secretly working for him and Trump, and that this is all one great big ruse to trap the guilty in DC.

That theory is becoming less plausible by the hour.

“Bias” seems like way too mild a term for this level of corruption.

Who let these leftist, marxists get into positions of power under Trump. Someone is giving Trump really bad advice. Who is it?

Tucker just mentioned another lawyer is tainted - Aaron Zebley.

But seriously, questions were raised here on FR & elsewhere from the very beginning about ALL these lawyers, so what is the surprise? All of a sudden, this is BREAKING NEWS? We’ve known from the start these lawyers had ties to Crooked Hillary.

No, it appears they all are. Has Mueller no shame, does he think this is legit, transparent, and fair?

The Mueller investigation is fatally tainted with bias and corruption. He should just shut it down completely at this point because there is now no way he can produce anything that would lead to a legitimate prosecution.

If he doesn’t then we know for sure that he’s part of the bias and corruption as well.

Mueller thought it would be over with in six months and it didn’t matter who he chose for his group. Trump was guilty and it was a slam dunk.

Agreed. If he doesn’t, someone needs to wake up Sessions so he and Rosenstein can fire Mueller and his team.

No, his mission is to make sure the matters that matter look like they don’t matter.

Don’t be hasty... looks like whoever it is put all the bad eggs in one basket, and that seldom ends well for the eggs.
