“The deep state spear”

Newt Gingrich is getting in on the act too, NPR points out.

There has been an effort on the right to try to undermine Mueller to de-legitimize his potential findings…:

I find that shocking. I keep being shocked by these people. I suppose it’s naïve, but I can’t help it.

… even though some of the same people just a month earlier had been praising the former FBI director for his esteem:

Why Newt, you hypocritical piece of crap you.

Mueller’s investigative team has expanded in recent weeks. The National Law Journal reported on June 9 that Mueller has brought Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben onto the team on a part-time basis. Reporter Tony Mauro noted the addition of Dreeben may signal that “Mueller may be seeking advice on complex areas of criminal law, including what constitutes obstruction of justice.” At the end of May, the chief of the Justice Department’s Fraud Section, Andrew Weissman, also joined the team, NPR’s Carrie Johnson reported at the time.

Justice Department policy is that a sitting president cannot be indicted by a grand jury, the Post also reported Wednesday. Any findings by the department’s investigation would be referred to Congress, where lawmakers would determine whether to impeach the president.

If he doesn’t resign first.
