CNN Contributor Shocks — I Don’t Want Politicians Telling The FBI What To Do
A longtime critic of President Trump, Mudd may have surprised CNN viewers that tune in for Trump animus when he said: “I don’t believe they have a duty to do this.”
Mudd then cautioned against what he sees as the irresponsible political weaponizaton of the Department of Justice. “Be careful of politicians to say who should or should not investigate,” he said, adding ” We have politicians once again saying we want to use our department of justice, Democrats have one view and Republicans have another to re-open an investigation that we initiate. I know this is a sensitive case but I would be cautious about allowing politicians to direct the department of justice and the FBI about what to investigate and what not. I don’t want politicians telling the FBI what to do.”
Those eager to hear Mudd make his predictable critique of Donald Trump were not disappointed when he finished by calling out Commander in Chief. “The right answer in a mature world would be the Executive Branch — the man that leads that branch –the president of the United States might go to the department of justice and say can’t we conduct a fair conversation with three people related to the situation behind closed doors, and keep it a closed-door investigation and come up with an answer in several weeks.”
But that’s not going to happen.
