According to Constitutional expert and conservative pundit Mark Levin, the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump Campaign is not only a huge waste of taxpayer dollars, it is also unconstitutional.
The “Life, Liberty & Levin” host said on Fox News’ “Hannity” that new revelations about Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump’s alleged Russian collusion render the probe unconstitutional.
Levin said a new “special status” given to several of Robert Mueller’s prosecutors into the probe which involves former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, may be invalidating the entire investigation.
Levin said the attorneys in the case before an Alexandria, Va. federal judge are simultaneously considered “Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys.”
He added, therefore, their direct supervisor — Robert Mueller — should be lawfully considered a “roving” U.S. Attorney.
Levin says the Constitution designates the president of the United States as the person who must nominate all “principal officers” — including U.S. attorneys as well as cabinet members.
But, Robert Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and as anyone working as a U.S. attorney should be by law, was not confirmed by the Senate.
Levin said, therefore this “violates the Constitution [via] the Appointments Clause” in Article II.
“Rosenstein usurped the authority of the president of the United States to nominate whoever he wants as a prosecutor,” Levin said.
“Mr Mueller is serving unconstitutionally in violation of the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution because of the way Rod Rosenstein appointed him.”
Levin also asked that every defendant in the Mueller investigation and all attorneys for those subpoenaed or affected to immediately raise the issue of the Appointments Clause in court.
“The breadth of his investigation is so massive, so broad [that] four of his own people get dual appointments [as assistant U.S. attorneys],” he added.
