Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, joined Fox and Friends on Monday to talk about the controversy surrounding Robert Mueller hiring Hillary Clinton donors for his team.
Many Americans do not know Special Counsel Mueller is hiring people who gave huge sums of money to Hillary Clinton’s campaign for his investigation team into the Trump administration. That conflict of interest can’t be swept under a rug and Conway spoke to that issue below.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office has started to reveal the makeup of its investigative team. A spokesman said Monday they’ve hired 13 attorneys, with more in the pipeline. To date, the office has confirmed six names – more could be confirmed in the coming days.
So far, this includes Andrew Weissmann, chief of the DOJ criminal division’s fraud section who also donated $2,300 to Barack Obama in 2008; James Quarles, a Watergate assistant special prosecutor who has donated thousands to Obama, Hillary Clinton and New York Sen. Chuck Schumer; and Jeannie Rhee, deputy assistant AG in the Office of Legal Counsel who has likewise donated thousands to Obama and Clinton.
The donor background has fueled complaints from Trump allies like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich that the probe is not independent. Trump himself has started calling the investigation an all-caps “WITCH HUNT.”
Asked about the concerns on Monday, Conway echoed them. “And so if we’re going to talk about transparency and accountability and who all the players are here, I think it’s relevant that people know that Mr. Mueller’s team includes folks who gave significant amounts of money” to Democrats, she said.
Mueller is giving new meaning to the words “conflict of interest” not only by his longtime relationship with Comey, but by the hit squad of Hillary Dem donors he’s hiring. Who does he think he’s fooling? Impossible to have an unbiased investigation with the team he’s building, don’t you agree?
