Mueller’s witch hunt has been a colossal waste of time and money. Yet it persists because of the inaction of Jeff Sessions. But now that he is out of the picture this could be the end of the Mueller probe. Well, it should be unless people like Jeff Flake have their way.

Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake tried to bring forth a bill to protect the Mueller Investigation, essentially protecting Mueller’s job and prolonging the Trump witch hunt.

“With the firing of the attorney general … the president now has this investigation in his sights and we all know it,” Flake said from the Senate floor.”

He added that Trump had accused Mueller of a witch hunt “without basis or fact.”

“How such an investigation can be the cause of controversy is beyond me. …[And] presidents do not get to determine what gets investigated and what and who does not,” Flake said.

Flake’s attempt at protecting Mueller was thwarted by Mitch McConnell who stepped up and denied his request to bring legislation forward to the Senate. But Flake is not taking no for an answer and is now making ultimatums. Flake claims that if his legislation is not heard then he will vote against future judicial nominations by Trump.

“I have informed the majority leader I will not vote to advance any of the 21 judicial nominees pending in the Judiciary Committee or vote to confirm the 32 judges awaiting confirmation on the Senate floor until … [the bill] is brought to the full Senate for a vote,” Flake said from the Senate floor.

Flake’s bill would make it harder to fire a special counsel like Mueller. More and more you have to wonder whose side Flake is on. Flake would make things more difficult on the Senate Judiciary committee but would need another Republican to join him if he wanted to have any power in Senate decisions.
