President Donald Trump and his allies have set their sights on attacking special counsel Robert Mueller in an attempt to paint Mueller as an anti-Trump partisan.
When Mueller, a former FBI director, was first appointed to the role by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, conservatives cheered the decision, saying he would conduct a fair investigation into alleged Russian election interference or go after Trump’s enemies.
“Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down,” former House Speaker and Trump ally Newt Gingrich tweeted on May 17.
Conservative commentator and author of “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome” Ann Coulter tweeted that same day, “People who have most to worry about with appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller: Hillary, Loretta Lynch, John Podesta, Bill Clinton…”
Fast forward a few weeks and Mueller has become an enemy of the White House.
