TUCKER CARLSON: Nobody controls Robert Mueller. Mueller can send armed men to your home to roust you from bed at gunpoint just because he feels like it and there's nothing you or anyone else can do about it. Mueller has an unlimited budget and no timetable. He doesn't have to answer questions. He can do whatever he wants whenever he wants to whomever he wants. He cannot be fired.
Mueller is the single most powerful person in America and yet nobody voted for him. He is a living rebuke to the principles of our democratic system. At the same time, our leaders tell us we need Robert Mueller, an all-powerful unelected prosecutor accountable to no one to protect us from threats to, brace yourself here, democracy. Nobody in Washington catches the irony in any of this. Mueller himself is a threat to our democracy, the most powerful man elected by nobody. Our media don't ask questions about any of this or even acknowledge that it is a question. They have chosen sides.
