No Registered Republican Lawyers on Mueller’s Team

While Mueller Himself is Republican, no registered Republican lawyers are working for him.

The fact that none of the people working for him are registered Republican lawyers, means that the deep state isn’t even trying to make the pretence of an impartial investigation. Most of them are Democrats. Some of them—a much smaller number—are officially unaffiliated. Furthermore, they have donated a great deal more to the Democrats that the Republicans.

The Daily Caller reports, “EXCLUSIVE: Not A Single Lawyer Known To Work For Mueller Is A Republican.

None of the 16 publicly-confirmed lawyers on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team are registered Republicans, The Daily Caller News Foundation has found.

Voter registration records indicate that 13 of the attorneys are Democrats and three have no party affiliation. […]

One of the lawyers, Zainab Ahmad, appears to have registered as a Republican at the age of 18, but has since changed her registration status to unaffiliated.

There is a 17th lawyer on the Russia probe, but this person’s identity and political affiliation remain unknown.

The special counsel’s office has previously disclosed that nine of the 16 lawyers have made a total of $62,000 in donations to Democrats, with one of those nine lawyers having also donated $2,750 to Republican candidates.

However, that analysis only looked at donations found in Federal Elections Commission records. TheDCNF has uncovered two additional Democratic donors by searching for all donations – regardless of party – recorded in campaign finance databases at the state level.

Adam Jed, an appellate lawyer for the Justice Department, made two donations in 2017 – $1,000 to a Democratic candidate for Wisconsin attorney general and $100 to a Democratic candidate for Baltimore state’s attorney. Another DOJ lawyer, Aaron Zelinsky, donated $100 in 2014 to the Branford Democratic Town Committee in Connecticut and $100 to a Democratic state lawmaker in 2016.

That makes 11 lawyers on the Mueller team who have donated to Democratic campaigns.

No wonder many think the Mueller investigation is a witch hunt.
