Fitton: Judicial Watch Sues for Documents on Mueller’s Abusive Raid on Trump’s Lawyers
JULY 09, 2018
In April, Special Counsel Mueller and the DOJ crossed yet another bridge too far, when Mueller recommended, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved, a raid on President Trump’s then-personal attorney’s home and office.
At the time of the raid, I tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of @RealDonaldTrump-Russia collusion.”
Judicial Watch began an investigation that has resulted in another JW “Mueller oversight project” lawsuit.
On its face, the raid on then-President Trump’s lawyer seemed abusive and out of line. It is not surprising that the Mueller Special Counsel and the Justice Department would ignore FOIA law and refuse to respond to Judicial Watch’s basic requests for information about this extraordinary raid.
