The Russian Hoax

Chapter 11
Summary

This chapter looks at how Robert Mueller was appointed illegitimately. He was elected to take on the role of Special Counsel. Moreover, he did not qualify for the task since there were conflicts of interest that would affect his ability to carry out his work effectively. Due to his appointment, it showed that the considerations for justice were viewed to be irrelevant, and were not looked at in the case of state appointments. Mueller had been a fair leader and performer, but the role of a Special Counsel was improper for him.

Analysis

It is true that Robert Mueller was a performing individual who was known for being fair and impartial. However, through the act of being selected as Special Counsel, the considerations of justice were not respected since he was only to be elected when the Department of Justice was unable of perform its duties. Mueller even asked for investigations on crimes; yet, this was in violation of the regulations of Special Counsels, which did not permit the Department of Justice to appoint a Special Counsel to help in determining the basis of a criminal investigation.
