We can count Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton among the many who are disappointed with Robert Mueller and suspicious of him.

“I don’t know what reputation he had that deserved any credence until now, but it’s no longer there,” Fitton told Lou Dobbs of Fox Business Wednesday night. “He’s really destroyed whatever reputation he had with this political attack on the president, turning the rule of law on its head, suggesting the president is guilty and, because he can’t prove otherwise, we should conclude that he should be impeached.”

Fitton called it an “abuse of power” and that Attorney General William Barr has been “too deferential” to Mueller, saying he should have “shut down” the “report before it was even written.”

“It’s been abuse piled on top of abuse targeting President Trump,” Fitton said. “And this Mr. Mueller, he needs to be investigated as well. The office of professional responsibility should be asking, ‘Why did this Justice Department prosecutor come out and suggest wrongdoing by an innocent person without any foundation?’ Because there is no foundation. If there was a foundation, there would have been indictments or requests for an indictment while highlighting that. Outrageous.”

Dobbs pointed out the curious timing of the op-ed in the Washington Post by James Comey that was published the day before. “Is it a coincidence that James Comey, the dirty cop, wrote an op-ed that was published just a day ahead of the Mueller remarks today?—doesn’t that strike you as odd, coincidental, perhaps?”

Comey and Mueller ware “two peas in a pod when it comes to attacking” President Trump, Fitton said.

“And this relationship between James Comey and Robert Mueller, many years in its duration,” Dobbs interjected. “But do you suppose it persisted even as the special counsel and the fired former FBI director, could they have possibly been colluding? Should there be an investigation of that collusion? Because there are too many coincidences, it seems to me.”

Fitton said that he has “asked for documents about that collusion,” adding he thought it was “curious” that Mueller allowed Comey to testify even though he was part of the obstruction investigation. Fitton also said he thought it was curious that Mueller was “disinterested” in the “anti-Trump hatred” in the Russia probe.

“It is curious,” Dobbs replied. “And after today, there are more questions about the witch hunt, as the president first characterized it which I think is an apt description of what this turned out to be.”

In another segment, Dobb spoke with Eric Trump about Mueller. Trump said, “I think he did a travesty to his country. It shouldn’t take two and a half years to come up with no collusion, no obstruction. He said today I stand by everything I said in the report. Albeit he didn’t just come out and say, guys, after two and a half years, there was no collusion and there was no obstruction.

“All the Democrats can do is put on these clown shows on the side, and it’s a shame, because it hurts this country. It’s a travesty. We’re doing so well. When are people going to start cheerleading for America versus just being obstructionists? That’s what these guys are doing.”

“And it’s stunning,” said Dobbs, “the only initiative announced by the Democrats in this period has been the AOC New Green Deal.”

“Yeah, which is going to cost, what? … $91 trillion?” said Trump. It’s going to bankrupt our nation.

“Lou, these guys have no message, they have no leadership. They’re old ideas. They have no charisma. Look at the people running, right? There’s 50 people running. No charisma. Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York, right? He can’t break 0%. I mean, he can’t break 0%.”
