Hugh Hewitt: Our Depleted Judiciary

U.S. Senate

It has been rumored in Washington that President Trump may fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Although this is possible, it would be ill advised on the part of the president. If he and his staff are indeed innocent and have not colluded with the Russians (and there is no evidence to date that they have), then this will be over.

If, on the other hand, the president chooses to fire Mueller, he should expect his administration to undergo extraordinary stresses and his momentum to vanish over night.

Republicans have enough problems on their hands. There are 20 vacancies on the circuit court of appeals and over 100 vacancies on the lower courts for which there has not been a nomination put forward yet. This is unacceptable. It’s a failure of governance.

Republicans don’t need another Saturday Night Massacre 2.0 and firing Robert Mueller would be just that. The Trump administration should instead focus on putting forward originalist nominees for the depleted judiciary.

Hugh Hewitt: Wait Upon The Facts

U.S. Senate

Former FBI director Robert Mueller enjoys deep and wide respect inside and outside of the Beltway, among Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.

Of course: Now he’s Special Counsel with unique independence in addition to his formal authority that comes from the Department of Justice’s regulations.

For purposes of the investigation into Russia’s attack on our elections in 2016, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the Acting Attorney General and technically Mueller’s supervisor. But it’s almost impossible to imagine circumstances in which Mr. Rosenstein would attempt to guide or influence Mr. Mueller.

Both men are long serving public servants and career prosecutors. Both deserve the respect they have earned and Mueller especially needs time to get his investigation staffed and grounded.

When it’s all over Mueller will have an overwhelming presumption of integrity on his side whether his findings hurt Republicans or Democrats.

Pundits especially should be very leery of rushing to judgment about anything connected to the Russia investigation.  Wait upon the facts and Mr Mueller.

Wait upon the facts.
