codifying existing regulations and providing a process for judicial review if a special counsel is removed.” He lists the existing reasons a special counsel can be dismissed but then he adds something new. The new is where the devil gets in the details. “It allows the special counsel to challenge his or her removal before a panel of three federal judges.” They can immediately reinstate the special counsel if they want to (Three federal judges–do you think they will be from the 9nth district in San Francisco?)
Any way, following is my response:
Thank you for answering my letter. I still think your Special Counsel Integrity Act is unconstitutional as Rep. Chaffez suggests. It also implies that this president is morally inferior to you and needs to be reined in. Also, it smacks of the evil coup de d’etat against my president which I take personally as one of the 2,339,603 North Carolinians who voted for him as compared to the 1,413,269 North Carolinians who voted for you.
But this note is to ask a question about the codification which includes “conflict of interest” as a reason for dismissal. Mueller’s close association with his principal witness Comey, some say violates federal law as a conflict of interest--choosing so many Democrat supporting attorneys who have conflicts of interests–having his grand jury judge, a close friend and former colleague of Loretta Lynch–would you call these conflicts of interest? If so, then he is gone even before you get your misguided law into effect.
