I want to talk about the curious restrictions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Keep in mind the language of Mr. Mueller’s assignment, as articulated on May 17 by Rod Rosenstein: To investigate:

“any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from that investigation.”

The new subjects of Mueller’s inquiry are not only remote from that recent but apparently forgotten assignment, but they begin to sketch the outline of a lawyer who is stocking up on matters of inquiry for a long-haul investigation.

Notice what isn't there.

There's no mention of the Obama Administration trying to sieze control of the 2016 election from the states by making elections "critical infrastructure."

Or how Obama Administration tried hacking voting machines in Indiana.

Or how the Obama Administration colluded with the Clinton campaign to lock out all other possible Democrat candidates.

Or how Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to meet secretly with former President Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix to "discuss our grandchildren."

Or Hillary Clinton's
many, many Russian connections.

One might speculate that Robert Mueller's real mandate is to protect the institutions of government from someone like Trump.

But only perhaps if one were a paranoid libertarian.
