Independence and Objectivity Are Basic Tenets of Any Investigation or Audit – The Mueller Witch Hunt Includes Neither! Shut It Down!

Auditors, attorneys, criminal investigators and inspectors all know that for a case, audit or investigation to be proper, it must be performed by individuals who are both independent and objective. The Mueller witch hunt is neither and therefore flawed from the start!

Any professional in any field related to audits or investigations or legal cases knows that the tenets of independence and objectivity are paramount to ensuring that an audit, investigation or legal case is performed properly. Some fields mandate these principals and in the absence of independence or objectivity, those involved can lose their licenses and/or even be jailed.

Objectivity is defined as professional or business judgement not being swayed because of bias, conflict of interest or the undue influence of others’.

Independence generally is defined as being made up of two elements: ‘Independence of mind’ and ‘independence of appearance’. The former is still defined to include integrity, objectivity and skepticism. The latter is defined as being free from ‘facts and circumstances’ that would lead a reasonable and informed third party to conclude that integrity, objectivity or skepticism was compromised.

These definitions may vary slightly by profession but they are generally consistent. Lack of either can lead to corporate financials being misstated, investigations being botched and mistrials. These are serious tenets and even the novice auditor knows that if there is even the slightest appearance of a breach in either, the auditor must recuse himself or be liable for serious legal consequences.

All professionals are aware of these facts and all professionals know the serious nature of when they are infringed upon in any of the aforementioned activities.

The Mueller witch hunt not only lacks the appearance of independence and objectivity but it lacks “independence of mind” – meaning it lacks integrity, objectivity and skepticism and is clearly corrupt and compromised.
