First a definition via Wikipedia (the bold print is mine):
The Star Chamber (Latin: Camera stellata) was an English court of lawwhich sat at the royal Palace of Westminster, from the late 15th century to the mid-17th century (c. 1641), and was composed of Privy Councillors and common-law judges, to supplement the judicial activities of the common-law and equity courts in civil and criminal matters. The Star Chamber was originally established to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against socially and politically prominent people so powerful that ordinary courts would probably hesitate to convict them of their crimes. However, it became synonymous with social and political oppression through the arbitrary use and abuse of the power it wielded.
This leads us straight to Robert Mueller.
I cannot call what he is doing an investigation anymore. It is a Star Chamber, pure and simple.
And here, via James Rosen and Jake Gibson’s article at Fox News, is the latest example of why:
A senior Justice Department official was demoted this week amid an ongoing investigation into his contacts with the opposition research firm responsible for the anti-Trump “dossier,” the department confirmed to Fox News.
Until Wednesday morning, Bruce G. Ohr held two titles at DOJ: associate deputy attorney general, a post that placed him four doors down from his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein; and director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), a program described by the department as “the centerpiece of the attorney general’s drug strategy.”
Ohr will retain his OCDETF title but has been stripped of his higher post and ousted from his office on the fourth floor of “Main Justice.”
It was not enough that the basis for this investigation is an unverified BS “dossier” that was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
It was not enough that Robert Mueller is a personal friend of disgruntled, out-for-revenge James Comey.
It was not enough that he stacked his deck with anti-Trump staffers, including several who specifically contributed to the Clinton campaign.
It was not enough that FBI investigator Peter Strzok turns out to be so anti-Trump – they have found overtly partisan emails passing between him and his extra-marital love interest, Lisa Page (also involved with the investigation) that even Mueller couldn’t take it and fired him – AFTER months on the job and WITHOUT telling anyone why for four months.
(Strzok also was the one who changed the accusation against Hillary Clinton’s email usage from “grossly negligent” – which is actionable in a court of law – to “extremely careless”, which is not. Nice free pass, pete.)
It was not enough that Mueller staffer Andrew Weissmann enthusiastically praised acting Attorney General, Obama-appointed Sally Yates, when she refused a direct order to enforce the travel ban.
Nope, none of that was enough. Now we have Ohr as well.
And how many more to come?
Enough is enough. And this is five times more than enough already.
Oh, one other thing: have you noticed that every time we hear about one of these outrages, Rod Rosenstein seems to be right in the thick of it?
The sooner President Trump gives this Democrat mole the heave-ho, the better off he will be.
