The Washington Post is reporting that Robert Mueller is now investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice, examining not only the president’s alleged statement to Comey in their February meeting, but also the firing of FBI Director James Comey. 

If true, this development makes the argument even more compelling that Mueller cannot serve as special counsel.  He has an egregious conflict of interest.   

The special counsel statute specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the investigation or prosecution.”  The language is mandatory.  He “shall” disqualify himself.  Comey is substantially involved in the case.  Indeed, he is the central witness.

The two men and former colleagues have long been friends, allies and partners.  Agents have quipped that they were joined at the hip while at the Department of Justice and the FBI.  They have a mentor-protégé relationship.  The likelihood of prejudice and favoritism is glaring and severe.

So, it is incomprehensible that the man who is a close friend of the star witness against the president… will now determine whether the president committed a prosecutable crime in his dealings with Mueller’s good friend.  Mueller cannot possibly be fair in judging the credibility of his friend versus the man who fired him.
