From the first days Special Counsel Robert Mueller began to assemble his investigative team to try to get to the bottom of that ever-elusive, Democrat-driven Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative, reports about political bias among his staff began to emerge. When details about former team member Peter Strzok’s overt antipathy for Trump hit the headlines, allegations of bias among the intelligence community ratcheted up.
A new study by The Daily Caller throws more fuel on the fire of the anti-Trump bias allegations. TheDC looked into the political affiliations among those tasked with supposedly giving us a fair investigation about the Russia allegations — and found nothing close to bipartisan balance.
An examination of the voter registration records of the 16 publicly confirmed lawyers on Mueller’s team found that 13 of them are registered Democrats. Not a single one is a registered Republican. Three have no party affiliation.
TheDC notes that one of the currently unaffiliated attorneys, Zainab Ahmad, was once registered as a Republican, but that was back at age 18. As for the political affiliation of the still unidentified 17th attorney on the team, who knows, but the percentages aren’t stacked in the GOP’s favor.
While previous reports revealed that 9 of the known 16 had donated over $60,000 to Democrats, TheDC’s study found that in fact 11 have made donations, some of which were not in FEC records. Previous reports found that one of the nine who donated to Democrats also donated a few thousand to Republicans.
While his team is overwhelmingly Democratic, Mueller himself is a registered Republican.
