It is quite possible he did not know each agents political leanings. No one where I work knows my political leanings.

He could have chosen staff that are politically neutral, he didn't.

One of Mueller's was a prosecutor named Weissman despite the fact his Enron and Arthur Anderson convictions had been largely overturned on appeal. But hey, he supported Sally Yates when she defied Trump so that was enough for Mueller.

Then its gross negligence on Mueller's part for not researching...

...but I don't think it's gross negligence...I think having nine of his 16 lawyers donating to the Democrat party (and many of them to Hillary specifically) against one Republican donor (and it wasn't even for a presidential election) is by design...

...You don't come up with that much of a skew by "accident"...

Apparently, it's too hard to have "no political contributions" as part of his final decision on who gets to be on the team...

It's not even legal for my boss to ask me my political leanings.

as it should be. and elementary teachers definitely should be banned from telling students their voting record or leanings. they used to do this as a matter of propriety but no more.
