Fox & Friends Host Calls For End To Mueller Probe

Raw Story reports:

A co-host on President Donald Trump’s favorite morning news show said on Thursday morning that it’s time to wind down special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade declared on Thursday that “six months is enough” time for Mueller to fully investigate the complex web of financial ties that potentially connect Trump and key members of his campaign staff with Russian oligarchs.

To reinforce his point, he brought on Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who floated a proposal this week that would cut off funds for Mueller’s investigation after six months.

    Mueller teaming up with NY AG Schneiderman really scares the shit out of them. GOOD

        • billbear1961

          Don’t give up, bkmn!

    • aagold76 .

      I think the main reason for it was because of pardon possibilities- Trump can’t pardon people under a state investigation- just Federal. Mueller saw it coming and protected the investigation.

      • popebuck1

        I continue to be impressed with Mueller. Clearly this ain’t his first time at the rodeo.

      • pete

        there’s a new wrinkle i heard last night. can’t try twice is a consideration which is why NY may go first.

      • Nowhereman

        That and the fact that a lot of the state investigation was already in progress. I think they decided that the Manafort portion was “ripe” enough on its own to pursue it on the state side. At any rate, it’s got them scurrying like cockroaches looking for a dark place to hide. I just hope it takes out a big chunk of the GOP congress as well.

    • Nowhereman

      A lot of it will be completely out of congress’s reach, and immune to a presidential veto. HA HA!

    • wmforr

      I don’t think Governor Cuomo will be in a pardoning mood. Because they all, I am sure, are guilty of crimes in New York State, including Don Jr., Jared, Ivanka, and most of all the Orange Slime. Melania I will let off for ignorance, as well as future gay designer Baron.

      • bkmn

        A public refusal to pardon them would probably give Cuomo the boost in approval ratings in NYC that he would like. I fully expect the people with money that helped Blimpo get elected will be throwing their support behind whoever the GOP nominee for NY gov will be

  • fastlanestranger

    Fox and Fiends

  • Tawreos

    Of course, a TV host and a congressman are the best people to decide how long an investigation should continue for. I am sure they said the same thing about the Benghazi and email investigations that were so successful.

    • billbear1961

      And went on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on . . .

      • Snarkaholic

        This is the probe that never ends
        And it drags on and on and on and on and on and on my friends…

    • Todd20036

      Beat me to it. Also Vince Foster, Lewinsky, etc.

      Funny how fishing expeditions are ok against democrats, but an actual investigation where laws have been broken, and lies unearthed warrant no further review if it’s a republican.

      • kirby7771

        We don’t know what Meulller has uncovered yet, so it’s best not to speculate. But if one was to speculate….treason, tax evasion, perjury…..if one was to speculate. Which I would never do.

    • Joseph Miceli

      Exactly what I was going to post with one caveat: before posting I went through this Congressman’s record. He seems to be a very principled man with an exemplary service record. He’s just dead wrong about … well…everything. It is a real shame we can’t get him on our side. Sadly, I’m sure he hates gays as much as the next Republitard.

      • lattebud

        A principled man is ripe for blackmail for his indiscretions.

        • Joseph Miceli

          Shit, that’s about 4/5ths of government right there. There rest is corrupt and I’m being optimistic.

  • billbear1961

    fucking evil idiots

  • grada3784

    Four years or so wasn’t enough to investigate Benghazi, but it’s enough to investigate Trump and his Russia connection?

    Why am I not surprised that this would come from Fox?

  • AmeriCanadian

    Congressional Republicans spent $7m on 33 separate hearings over four years investigating Benghazi. Why the double standard?????

    • Bad Tom

      Republicans can do anything, and not be held accountable.
      Democrats can no nothing at all, and be accused of everything.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Serious question: Are republican brains wired in such a way to prevent them from perceiving hypocrisy? Give this test to any child that has yet to form a political bias and they’d see it every time.

        • Tawreos

          They see it, but they have trained their base not to so they can safely ignore it.

        • The_Wretched

          And a damaged sense of humor. It’s a offshoot of ‘victim mentality’. They are trained to be assholes and to perceive hurting as attacks on them. It’s complicated but think of christian ‘doubt’. They train that if you feel doubt that it means you know god is real.

        • FAEN

          Well the NYT conducted a study a few years ago and found Cluster Fox watchers knew less about the news than people who didn’t watch news at all. That should tell you something about their brains.

          • Nowhereman

            Yes–and the people who were most informed were those who got their news from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Amazing.

          • Kenster999

            And there was a study in 2008 (I think) where voters were asked questions about what policies they supported. The majority of those questioned supported traditional Democrat positions — but they thought that their Republican leaders were the ones who supported those positions.

          • FAEN


          • wmforr

            And people who watched John Stuart and Bill Maher knew much more!

            Oops! Sorry, Nowhereman, didn’t see your remark.

        • Xuuths

          When you’re desperate to cling to power, regardless of the impact on anyone, why be surprised that you end up hurting others and breaking laws?

        • Daveed_WOW

          They know exactly what they are doing. The explanation is simple: they are evil, as are the people who vote for them.

        • Librarykid

          It has nothing to do with brain wiring. It is just as my mother would say, just pure cussed meanness. They have an agenda and that is all that matters to them and all that they will see and hear must further their agenda which is nothing but a justification for their selfishness, as bambinoitaliano posted some time back.

        • Bad Tom

          I think it’s brain training.

          Brains of all kinds, but humans especially, show a large degree of plasticity. People normally speak of this regarding regaining function after a stroke or accident.

          But arguably this plasticity’s biggest effect is how it can condition people’s perceptions. This includes one’s self-perception, and the perceptions of others.

          Last century, advertisers learned to manipulate perception for commercial gain. Coupled with the invention of mass media, this has become a very real kind of black magic.
          “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” — Arthur C. Clarke
          The manipulation of perception for political gain has been codified since at least Machiavelli’s The Prince was published in 1532.

      • Steverino

        Projection is like that.

      • jonfromcalifornia

        Exactly. They can lie about Iraq, start a war, waste billions and get away with it. Imagine if a Democrat did that. There’d be no end to the investigations. This is why I can’t stand the gutless Democrats for letting the Republicans get away with everything without any consequences. Pres. Obama tried to mollify Republicans into voting for his health care bill based on a Republican plan and what did he get for it? There should NO dealing with Republicans unless it is done with a baseball bat. It’s why spineless Democrats are in this situation right now with judges, with voting rights, etc.

    • For one reason — because the Republicans know that Democratic Party control of the House of Representatives after the 2018 Midterms will basically be guaranteed by a Mueller indictment of Trump and Russian blackmailed cosa nostra. And once the Democrats control Congress, they will stop the coverup of the Russian interference in the 2016 election and buyout of the Republican Party. They will do anything to protect their own corrupt asses.

    • JCF
  • Pohaku

    The Dems should respond with ” that is what collaborators to traitors would do” That should shut them up fast. Start throwing the T word around. The Repubs do it all the time.

    • Xuuths

      Or, “That sounds like accessory to obstruction of justice.”

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    I won’t be surprised to learn that Fox and Friends hosts are on Putin’s payroll as well.

    • Frostbite

      #1 American news show in Russia! Putin watches it every day!

      • billbear1961

        And laughs his head off.

    • Bad Tom

      Mueller should add them to his list.

    • The_Wretched

      I’d like to see their balance sheets, actually. The payouts for harassment must make a large percent of the budget. I’ve always wondered how much all of them together hurt the bottom line.

    • Goodboy
    • They don’t have to be. They are screwing over the American public with a rotten tax code and corrupt public finances as it is. Remember the great recession and the Wall Street Bailout after the average American saw their retirement 401k’s, their real estate values, and their salaries stagnant at the expense of the top .1% sucking up the growth in economic growth in the past 15 years? Unless you can pay hardball like Peter Thiel you have been screwed over — the modern economy pays workers just enough to survive and grasp anger straws for a shrinking “pot of gold” as the super rich get richer (damn am I turning into a bitter hard lefty but how can one not after feeling like a gerbil spinning a wheel in a cage in our “competitive” rigged economy?).

      • wmforr

        And “it’s all Obama’s fault!”

  • Joe in PA
  • Bad Tom

    If Fox and Friends want the Mueller probe shut down, then the probe MUST GO ON.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I bet this is the first time in six months Fox & Friends has mentioned Mueller and the Russia investigation.

    • netman extraordinaire

      It’s interesting you say that. On that panel of disgruntled Trump voters they showed on MSNBC the other night, they were asked if they knew who Robert Mueller is. The majority of them had no idea who he is.

  • dr tod

    How come the Russian investigation that Rachel reports gets lost in translation to Fox news? Parallel universes?

    • Stogiebear

      Google has not yet perfected their English to Traitor translation software.

  • shellback

    Let’s explore the possible reasons for this train of thought:
    1) They’re both NAZIS.
    2) They’re both involved in some heavy-duty russian shit.

    Would you like to add to the list?

    • another_steve

      3) Red meat for Fox’s deplorable audience.

  • Rex

    Shut it down – it’s getting real.

    • another_steve

      They’re following the money and getting close.

      Remember that from Watergate – “follow the money”?


    They’re scared. It’s beyond a fishing expedition. This is killing off a deadly shark.

    • Joe in PA

      Ahhh, memories…I used to have such a crush on this one when I was but a wee one. 🙂

  • Ken M Let’s compare a little, shall we? Bill Clinton vs Donald Trump, investigations.

  • djcoastermark

    And yet, faux is still yammering about buttered emails and bengayzis.

  • ceeenbee

    Curious. The. Republicans, with the encouragement of faux news, have spent tens of millions of dollars and years and years and years investigating HRC. Even now, after her electorate college defeat to the shitgibbon, they continue to call for more investigations. Yet, they think six months half-assedly investigating the shitgibbon for money laundering , collusion and treason is enough.

    I don’t think so. I don’t think we are nearly done. I don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface.

  • vorpal 😼

    But of course, five years still isn’t enough for Benghaaaaaazi.

    • JCF

      Twenty-four years isn’t enough for the Clintons’ MURDER of Vince Foster!!1!1!!!!

  • chrise17

    And that of course is why the Benghazi probes were tied up after 6 months and never referred to again…

  • OdieDenCO

    and how many months (years) did congress spend investigating Hillary?

    • AmeriCanadian

      How long has she been involved in politics?

  • greenmanTN

    Keep dancing, snowflake, and maybe no one will notice you’re lying through your teeth.

  • j.martindale

    In your wet dreams.

  • Mike Rasor

    So Killmeade also believes that we’ve had enough time to investigate Benghazi and Hillary’s emails. Right?

  • Not happening, asshole.

    And why is it that all these jerks have those same, lifeless rat eyes?

    • Adam King

      Same drugz?

  • Lars Littlefield

    Well, they’re 110% correct. The GOP has more important things to investigate such as Hillary’s Benghazi connection surreptitious e-mails from Mars. And thus Russia rumor needs to be abandoned at all cost.

    • Adam King

      They never did get to the bottom of Hillary’s babyraping pizza scheme.

      • Lars Littlefield

        They simply need to have the contents of the pepperoni teated in a lab. All will be revealed.

  • billbear1961

    That racist dictator, who is tearing this country apart (and that is only starting!), must be DRIVEN from office by massive and relentless protests before he totally undermines the rule of law by continuing to repeatedly obstruct JUSTICE!!

    This is bloody obvious, and it’s time the decent people of this country, who still form the majority, faced up to it!!

    And it’s time the Democratic party faced up to it, found a SPINE, and did its DUTY to the Republic, to the Constitution and the rule of LAW by organizing those protests–NOW!!

    • Publius

      As a Spaniard, your use of the word “dictator” made me chuckle. Donald Trump is a shitty president, a dangerous president. But to call him a dictator is an insult to the masses of people who have experienced actual losses of political freedoms as a result of dictatorships.

      • Karl Dubhe

        It should have been modified with the term ‘wannabe’, at that point it would have been very accurate.

        He hath the desire, but not the ability. I hope and trust.

        • Publius

          Yeah I can get behind that. Trump is clearly bothered by those pesky separation of powers.

      • billbear1961

        He’s undermining the rule of law, obstructing justice, and, with the pardon of concentration camp commandant Arpaio, encouraging racists in law enforcement to violate citizens’ civil rights. He has given aid and comfort to violent racists who terrorized Charlottesville, where one of the NAZIS murdered a counter-protester and wounded 19 others. He goes around the country ranting and raving in his HATE rallies.

        Now, he may be a baby of a dictator at the moment, taking small steps, feeling his way, testing the waters, but if people don’t stand up to him soon–and what prominent elected voice do you hear defying him forcefully 24/7?– and call him what he is, things are going to get WORSE.

        Do you prefer we wait until this fledgling dictator is a full-blown Franco, Mussolini or Hitler before we face up to what’s happening right in front of our eyes??

        • Lauchlan Bernard-Christopher M

          Well the putsch may be about to start , on Monday he signs an order allowing police access to surplus military hardware. Now you may think the odd tin helmet or army style boots but bayonets , grenade launchers , armored and tactical vehicles – seriously ?

        • Publius

          Donald Trump will never be an actual dictator. It doesn’t polish anyone’s anti-Trump credentials when they decide to deliberately misuse that word.

          Again, your use of that word is an insult to so many who have seen it with their own eyes, who have felt it, been imprisoned by it, and who belong to families with generations shaved off because of it. America has no dictator.

          • billbear1961

            I’m done justifying my use of the word to you. If you don’t accept it, FINE.

            He will never be a full-fledged dictator?

            You have FAR more faith in the people of this country and their representatives than I do.

            I am amazed and sickened at how far down the road this country has ALREADY gone towards fascism.

            I’d suggest you OPEN your eyes.

          • Publius

            Yeah this is why people are irritated by Americans. Ignorance. An American would sooner tell someone whose family and compatriots were decimated by a real fascist dictatorship to “open” their eyes, than to realize that most Americans have no idea what that word means. There are no mini-dictatorships, there are no almost-dictatorships. There are dictatorships, and they’re really fucking real and tangible.

            Donald Trump might want to be a dictator, but it’s not going to happen. He’s not even close, and he never will be. I understand that opponents of Donald Trump are eager to brandish their anti-Trump badges, and one way they do it is by exaggerating things like this. But it’s unhelpful and, like I said, insulting to victims of actual, not pretend, dictatorships.

        • charemor

    Six months? Mueller was appointed special counsel in May. Unless Fox is totalling Mueller’s time and something else, which would be an interesting Freudian slip. More likely though that Fox News employees can’t do basic math.

      And the congressman was saying two years if you include Comey. Last I heard, the Comey investigation started July of last year, that’s 14 months at best.

    So let’s get the this right:

    6 months is too long to bother with actual treason…

    …but years of going after Clinton on made up, provably false charges is….not long enough.

    Yup, that’s conservative/GOP “logic” for you.

  • Justandra

    Spend the same amount of time they spent investigating benghazi and repealing the aca.

  • Jay Silversmith

    6 months?? you dikspittle…it only started in May. What are YOU using – the Aztec short calendar stone?

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Yeah, we should totally shut down. I mean six months is long enough. It’s not like, for example, the investigation into Nixon took over a year to complete.

  • Nowhereman

    Yeah, but it’s OK to drag out the “investigation” of Hillary’s emails for another few election cycles or until she passes away. Well, even then.

  • Mike C

    “hindering the ability for us to conduct the American people’s business” I mean, why the hell would you start now?

  • We need this investigation to continue, at least as long as Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi which was at least 4 years, if I remember correctly. Sept 11, 2012. STFU!

  • Girlgoon

    Did they stop investigating the Clintons yet, how long did that go on ?!

    • They won’t stop investigating the Clintons, ever. Thirty years or more into the future, TLC or History channel will do an “in-depth” investigation on them and Benghazi.

      • Tor

        But he got a blow job!!!

        • Yes, and they are jealous. That he got a blow job from a young, fairly good looking woman. How dare he get head, when they didn’t get any!!!

  • Richard

    This is all the more reason Americans should support Robert Mueller’s investigation. You have to ask, what is the motive for them wanting to shut it down?

  • countervail

    Nope. We get the the combined total of the Benghazi investigation and the Clinton email investigation at least! That’s like 3-4 years, right?

  • Richard B

    Brian Kilmeade is a imbecile and is unqualified to determine how long a investigation into Donald Trump’s Russia relationship should take.

  • Six months is enough? After the YEARS spent attempting to pin anything on HRC? Fuck that noise, keep up the digging Muller, you’ll finally get to the bottom of the pit and can begin to arrest folks.

  • Halou

    Six months? Probably referring to the nonsense the Republicans did to Democrat president Jimmy Carter. They had a special prosecutor pore through every last page and letter of documentation relating to the peanut farm the president’s family owned only to find out that members of the president’s family worked there. Wow! Giving up after six months only because there was literally nothing left for them to look at, they had done it all.

    Trump, however, has decades of covered up corruption and illicit acts each of which have their own often separate paper trails, not to mention the countless co-conspirators both American and foreign which make the whole thing that much bigger.

  • Halou

    Mueller is way ahead of these idiots. He is already collaborating with state attorneys general. If he gets booted out then the investigation will be handed over to the states. The party of “states’ rights” is going to live it, surely?

    While there is debate on whether Trump can pardon himself or his co-conspirators for federal offenses because such a thing has never been considered much less tested in court, there is no doubt at all over whether or not he can issue a pardon for state offenses. The answer is just no, he can’t do it.

  • david fairfield
