Ted Cruz: ‘Very Troubling’ That Mueller Has ‘Partisan Democrats’ On His Team
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said on Fox News Monday that it is “very troubling” for special counsel Robert Mueller to have partisan Democrats working on the Russia probe.
“There’s multiple ongoing investigations in both houses of Congress. And, you know, my view, I share the concern a lot of people have, that the Department of Justice, the special counsel, should not become a partisan fishing expedition.”
“I think it’s very troubling that Bob Mueller has appointed a number of lawyers to his team who are partisan Democrats, who [have] repeatedly been Democratic donors. In my view, the Department of Justice and the FBI, they should be beyond reproach.”
“They have a long bipartisan tradition of staying out of politics, and when you see partisan texts back and forth, when you see partisan Democratic donors integral in the investigation, that that raises very serious questions about fairness and impartiality, and I’m concerned about it and I know millions of Americans are, too.”
