Farah's Remarkably Self-Unaware Rant About Mueller Probe
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah writes in his April 10 column:

When Donald Trump became president, I feared for the safety and security of him and his family.

With all the hatred drummed up against Trump personally and his ideas, I thought his life could be in danger. I still do.

One thing I never saw coming was Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a law unto himself, who apparently will go to any length to destroy a duly elected president.

The self-unawareness here is astounding. Has he forgotten that he spent eight years going to just about every length -- including publishing lies -- to try and destroy the duly elected President Obama? Did he never consider that his eight-year campaign of hate against Obama may have put Obama's life in danger? Did he hope it would?

Farah then goes on to rant about the expanding scope of Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump:

What does Stormy Daniels have to do with Mueller’s mandate of investigating Russian collusion? Is Stormy Daniels a Russian agent? Was she a Russian agent eight years before the 2016 campaign, the last time she alleges any relationship with Donald Trump?

The case of Stormy Daniels, of course, is a civil matter. It’s not a criminal case – or even a potential criminal case, except for the possibility of charging Cohen with an illegal contribution to his client’s campaign. She had no connection with the campaign except to have signed a sworn affidavit denying any relationship with Donald Trump.

This investigation has become a circus – a very dangerous circus, one that treads heavily on the foundation of U.S. law and legal tradition.

Funny, we don't recall Farah ever complaining about independent counsel Kenneth Starr's mandate expanding far beyond the Whitewater investigation. Indeed, Farah compained that Starr didn't take down the Clintons, despite that greatly expanded mandate, on anything more serious than fudging the truth about having an affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Oh, and the whole "Is Stormy Daniels a Russian agent?" thing just makes Farah sound even more like a paranoid conspiracy-monger.
