WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Thom Tillis (RINO-NC) continues to raise eyebrows with his incessant and inexplicable push to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from the virtually non-existent threat of being fired by President Trump. Beyond being inane, the legislation Tillis and others are pushing is likely unconstitutional, and The Great One, Mark Levin attempted to educate the lawmakers on that fact last week.
“Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee who voted to advance an unconstitutional bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller were dead wrong.
First, Levin pointed out the absurd claim that firing Mueller would be an impeachable obstruction of the Russia investigation.
“If Trump did fire Mueller, which I don’t think he should, how would that stop the Russia investigation?” Levin asked. “Somebody else would pick up the cudgel and continue to investigate Russia.”
Levin said the Republicans who voted for the bill were “apparently illiterate when it comes to the Constitution.”
“The Senate, the House of Representatives, together Congress, has no power to stop a president of the United States from firing a special counsel. None. No power whatsoever,” Levin said. “It’s called separation of powers.”
“What the Senate Judiciary Committee did today is absolutely appalling. It’s grotesque!””
The Senate Judiciary Committee, of course, passed the Mueller protection bill last week. A few competing bills, one filed by Tillis, had all but died until the proud RINO helped wrangle all the bills together into one giant cluster of unnecessary and unconstitutional text.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had previously asserted that he would not bring the bill to the floor for a vote, so one wonders just why these senators on the committee found it necessary to go through the motions anyway.
Could it be that Tillis and others are merely taking the hits for something the Swamp leadership really does want? That would be consistent with Tillis’ brown nosing of the Establishment since he move to D.C. in 2014.
As the Mueller investigation drags on with no evidence of anything close to Russia collusion surfacing, Republicans should be letting it fizzle out like the sham that it is instead of breathing new life into at every turn and pushing the farce that they care about integrity.
