Mueller a partisan problem but Trump better be ready

Lady of JusticeA longtime conservative activist says President Donald Trump must have a firm game plan in place if he wants to fight Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

After last week's Senate testimony by former FBI Director James Comey, some conservatives are suggesting it's time for President Trump to pull the plug on Mueller's investigation of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

For one thing, they say, Comey admitted that memos he wrote about a series of tense meetings with Trump went to a law professor friend at Columbia University, whom was used to funnel the memos to the press. 

Comey also testified that he thought press coverage "might prompt the appointment of a special counsel."

Add to that reports that Mueller has hired several Democrats to work on what Trump is calling a "witch hunt," including an individual tied to the Clinton Foundation.

Richard Viguerie, chairman of Conservative HQ, says it appears that Trump is in Mueller's political cross-hairs and deserves to weigh firing Mueller.

"So I think maybe a change has to be made," says Viguerie, whose political activism stretches back to the 1970s'. "But it needs to be made well thought out with a firmly in place game plan."

There's no good outcome for President Trump or the Republican Party if this investigation is allowed to move forward, the veteran Republican predicts.

"When you hire this many hotshot young attorneys," he says, "they're going to want some scalps."

They will also want to point to successes, he adds, so some people will "pay a price" and careers will be ruined in an effort that's not worth the cost.
