Special counsel Robert Mueller has hired multiple donors who gave to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to join his team investigating President Donald Trump.

Federal records show that three attorneys who Mueller hired have made political donations, mostly to Democrats, CNN reports. Two of them gave the maximum contribution to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, while another donated to former President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Trump's supporters have begun casting doubt on the impartiality of Mueller and his team. Prominent Trump backer Newt Gingrich tweeted Monday that Mueller was unlikely to be fair.

Former President Bill Clinton's White House adviser Dick Morris said that hiring Democratic donors was a "huge mistake" by Mueller. Some of the president's critics, however, are saying the concerns about Mueller and his team are a distraction.
