Who you gonna believe: the Daily Caller, founded by Tucker Carlson, or CNN’s Chris Cuomo? Because one or the other has things seriously wrong when it comes to the political affiliations of the lawyers on Robert Mueller’s investigative team.
On CNN this morning, Cuomo claimed:
“Mueller’s team has some type of breakdown of Democrat and Republican. It’s about 50/50.”
But a study conducted by the Daily Caller News Foundation came to a strikingly different conclusion. As the headline of the article reporting on the study reads, “Not A Single Lawyer Known To Work For Mueller Is A Republican.”
“None of the 16 lawyers known to work for special counsel Robert Mueller are registered Republicans.There are 13 registered Democrats on the investigation and three lawyers with no party affiliation. Campaign finance records reveal that 11 lawyers are Democratic donors.”
Those are the facts as reported by the Daily Caller. If Cuomo and CNN have “alternative facts,” they should lay them out.
Note: Cuomo’s claim came in response to President Trump’s statement that the members of Mueller’s team are “Democrats all, or just about all.” Judging by the Daily Caller study, looks like Trump has it about right.
