Except that Trump didn't start out with a special investigator. Mueller was appointed in May, 8 days after firing Comey... the same day it became public that a grand jury had issued subpoenas to associates of former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and 7 days after Trump hosted a private oval office meeting with the Russian ambassador and revealed highly classified intelligence about the Islamic State and American counterterrorism plans. I'm sure Trump is regretting a lot of his decisions at this point.
Mueller is guilty of a huge conflict of interest because he was director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation when former President Barack Obama’s administration approved an agreement allowing a Russian company to buy a Canadian company that owned 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies. Mueller should be fired and investigated for his role in the Uranium One deal along with the Clinton crime syndicate.
Mueller is also likely to be investigated for his apparent collusion with Comey on the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s emails.
