The official Trump War Room tweeted a video showing that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller claimed he did not know his top staffer Jeannie Rhee had deep ties to Hillary Clinton before he hired her.

Many who watched the video found Mueller’s apparent lack of vetting of his own staff (or playing dumb) disgraceful.
Total shitshow. Mueller is the top cop investigating Russian collusion, and he doesn’t even investigate the conflicts of interest of his investigators?

Rep. Armstrong was not the only Republican to grill Mueller on the extreme left-wing bias of his probe staff. Rep. Louis Gohmert asked Mueller “You hired a bunch of people who did not like the President. Now, let me ask you, when did you first learn of Peter Strzok’s animus towards Donald Trump?”
