Magnificent Bastard Vietnam Veteran Attacked For Doing Job?

"Republicans step up attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller"

Why are Republicans going after another Vietnam War hero? Why are they attacking a man they praised for his integrity?

Looks like they'd simply rather ignore the facts and attack whomever goes against this POTUS, when they should be screaming to get to the bottom of what happened to the integrity of this nation.

This is the guy they are attacking.


A 'Magnificent Bastard' Is Investigating Russian Meddling in the US

Mueller would earn the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry in his time in Vietnam. The citation for his Bronze Star said that during an attack on his rifle platoon, "2nd Lt. Mueller fearlessly moved from one position to another, directing the accurate counterfire of his men and shouting words of encouragement to them." 
During the firefight on Dec. 11, 1968, Mueller "personally led a fire team across the fire-swept terrain to recover a mortally wounded Marine who had fallen in a position forward of the friendly lines," the citation said.

One has it that there was a tough fight on a Pacific Island but word got back to the ships that 2/4 had broken through enemy lines. Somebody on the ships said "Oh, you magnificent bastards" and the name stuck. 
Another has it that there was a change of command ceremony for 2/4 and a couple of Marines bumped into each other during the pass in review, precipitating a mass brawl on the parade field. 
The new commander was delighted and called them a bunch of "Magnificent Bastards." In 1964, Lt. Col. J.R. "Bull" Fisher added "Magnificent Bastards" to 2/4's insignia.

Had this President been a Democrat, they would have been screaming for this investigation with this man taking the lead. Oh, wait, they already wanted him for the job!
