Mueller is a disaster

The Mueller investigation is a catastrophe that reflects everything that is wrong with Washington, the FBI, and federal prosecutors. If power corrupts then all three are absolutely corrupted.

Robert Mueller himself is incompetent and an ethical disaster.

He assembled a partisan crew of Clintonians who are tied to the laughably implausible "Russian Dossier" with its tall tales from Kremlin officials of urinating hookers and the like.

The investigation itself is a crime syndicate headed by a lifer federal prosecutor whose incompetence as FBI director cost taxpayers $5.8 million to settle with the man Mueller relentlessly hounded as the falsely accused anthrax mailer.



In this investigation, Mueller is supposed to find some collusion between the Russian government and Trump's election victory.

Instead he has assembled a team of Clinton supporters who plan to leave no stone unturned in trying to impeach President Trump.

The Deep State seeks to reverse the outcome of the 2016 election.

So far Mueller has charged Paul Manafort and a colleague with money laundering involving rugs that has nothing to do with the 2016 campaign.

Also, Mueller hounded retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn about lying to the FBI about some small matter after Trump was installed as president.

Mueller is investigating nothing related to the cockamamie conspiracy theory that Putin and Trump allied to hack the election last year.

We know this because Mueller has manipulated the press in classic FBI fashion with a string of leaks. None of his leaking of details now concerns the Russian Dossier.

The FBI manipulation of the press goes back to Hoover.

When Nixon passed over Mark Felt as Hoover's successor, Felt leaked Watergate, which turned a third-rate burglary into an impeachable offense by concentrating on how the White House tried to CYA. The cry became the Cover Up Is Worse than the Crime.

It was a classic coup de deep state.

The FBI made Richard Jewell's life holy heck when it looked for a scapegoat for the 1996 Olympics bombing. It pushed the cockamamie idea that Jewell planted the bomb so he could look the hero by discovering it.

The actual bomber was Eric Robert Rudolph, a domestic terrorist who blew up abortion clinics.

Now Mueller's Nightmare Team of partisans has almost unlimited and unchecked power as it seeks to subvert the Constitution. The real crime is that Clinton's opposition research team -- Fusion GPS -- which came up with the Russian Dossier -- is connected to Mueller's investigation.

From Fox News:
A senior Justice Department official demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the anti-Trump “dossier” had even closer ties to Fusion GPS, the firm responsible for the incendiary document, than have been disclosed, Fox News has confirmed: The official’s wife worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.
Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.
Fusion GPS's Russian Dossier came from Kremlin officials. So the people who were working with the Russian government were the Democrats, including the spouse of Mueller's ace investigator.

Conflict of interest does not begin to describe the evil behind this.

But what else would one expect from Mueller but abuse of power?

He became FBI director a week before 9/11. Shortly thereafter came the anthrax mailing. He took charge of the investigation personally.

From the Atlantic in 2010:
Agents were compelled to consider any and all means of investigation. One such avenue involved Don Foster, a professor of English at Vassar College and a self-styled literary detective, who had achieved modest celebrity by examining punctuation and other linguistic fingerprints to identify Joe Klein, who was then a Newsweek columnist, as the author of the anonymously written 1996 political novel, Primary Colors. Foster had since consulted with the FBI on investigations of the Unabomber and Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park bombing, among other cases. Now he was asked to analyze the anthrax letters for insights as to who may have mailed them. Foster would detail his efforts two years later in a 9,500-word article for Vanity Fair.
Surveying the publicly available evidence, as well as documents sent to him by the FBI, Foster surmised that the killer was an American posing as an Islamic jihadist. Only a limited number of American scientists would have had a working knowledge of anthrax. One of those scientists, Foster concluded, was a man named Steven Hatfill, a medical doctor who had once worked at the Army’s elite Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), which had stocks of anthrax.
On the day al-Qaeda struck the World Trade Center and the Pentagon with hijacked jetliners, Hatfill was recovering from nasal surgery in his apartment outside the gates of Fort Detrick, Maryland, where USAMRIID is housed. We’re at war, he remembers thinking as he watched the news that day—but he had no idea that it was a war in which he himself would soon become collateral damage, as the FBI came to regard him as a homegrown bioterrorist, likely responsible for some of the most unsettling multiple murders in recent American history. His story provides a cautionary tale about how federal authorities, fueled by the general panic over terrorism, embraced conjecture and coincidence as evidence, and blindly pursued one suspect while the real anthrax killer roamed free for more than six years. Hatfill’s experience is also the wrenching saga of how an American citizen who saw himself as a patriot came to be vilified and presumed guilty, as his country turned against him.
For seven long years, Mueller's FBI hounded the poor man, leaking stuff it never should have.

In the end, they had the wrong man.

Taxpayers gave Hatfill $5.8 million.

President Bush 43 did not fire Mueller, who stayed on the job another five years.

He should have been prosecuted.

After all, the Cover Up Is Worse than the Crime.

Maybe President Trump later will investigate Mueller and the rest who abuse their power.

And then, maybe Trump will lead a reform of the federal government that will curb the power of the FBI and the U.S. attorneys.

But for now, let us toast marshmallows and watch as the Mueller Investigation collapses on its own dead weight.

Mueller and his team have discredited themselves.

Democrats have moved on. They now pin their impeachment dream to three women crying "sexual harassment" against Trump from 40 years ago.

The first was "Trump the Press," which covered his nomination.

The second was "Trump the Establishment," which covered his election.

  1. ANOTHER great post, Big D. And let us not forget who was Mueller's mentor and butt boy: James Comey. Yes, Virginia, there IS a Deep State. And yes, you should be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

  2. Things will surely get worse as the deep State - Mueller, Comey, and Rosenstein in particular - tries to distract from their treasonous dealings in the Uranium One scandal. I wonder if Mr. Strzok's fingerprints are all over that, too.

    1. The fight is on, and President Trump and his team are winning. Each and every day.

      Notice how we haven't heard anything from General Kelley since the cowboy hat lady started her crap. I'd guess the General is the one pulling it all together.

  3. The slow trickle of disastrous news about Meuller and his cronies is hopefully a plan. Catch more of these treasonous felons. Our is the latest. Strzok before him. We’d never heard of either before last week. Now they are stuck in it like quicksand.

    I hope the hammer comes down soon. But if more snakes need to be rounded up first, I’ll be patient.

  4. Forty years ago?

    What, the Democrats can’t dig up some antebellum cousin of Jefferson Davis to claim Trump harassed her?

  5. I do hope Mueller's digging gets him deeper and deeper into that hole to to the point of collapse.

  6. This is blowing up, made worse with the coming testimony by Mr. Campbell on U1, along with the FBI internal investigation and the cleansing going on in the IC.

    The left had to meet with George Soros and Nancy Pelosi a few weeks ago to come up with a plan. So far what they've put in motion is to have surrogate mother Valarie Jarett separate Obama from his marijuana and video games to go out to undermine President Trump around the world and in Alabama. Then the 'let's get Trump on sexual harassment and impeach him' started with Chris Matthews saying that the Democrats were "too pure", and 4 paid off and discredited accusers showed up on Megan Kelly's program Monday - which no one watches or believes. Then this afternoon 58 Democratic Congressional women demand President Trump investigated.

    The Dems are beyond desperate. They are truly pathetic. They know they need to stop President Trump before prosperity becomes a reality to American citizens, and the corrupt Deep State is reformed with the average American seeing how totally corrupt, power-hungry, and anti-American the Democratic party is.

    1. No need to.....

      The left / Dems / MSM are are panicking and doing themselves in. Just watch as they turn on one another and call each other out. It always happens like this. Yesterday, Democratic suck-up pseudo-CIA Director Michael Morell said the IC was too harsh on Trump in the 2016 campaign. Morell? Said that? Today Gillibrand, Warren and Palmieri are pulling each others hair. LOL

      The handwriting is on the wall. The rats are trying to find a dry, dark place to hide.

      Get the popcorn and watch. This is far more entertaining then the NFL has ever been!

  10. I can just hear the conversation now...

    Mueller: Don't give up on me! I know I can get him! Just give me more time!

    Obama: Sorry. You had your chance. We're going with the Franken Gambit now.

    Mueller: But that's not working any better than the Russia story! You couldn't even stop Roy Moore- What makes you think you're going to get Trump?

    Obama: No, it's a good plan- just as good as all my others...

  11. Nellie Ohr. It gets worse. She's ex-CIA, was paid by Fusion GPS, and just after meeting with Christopher Steele applied for a HAM radio license. That's one sure way to avoid the NSA surveillance. She was the CIA Russia "expert" - prolly more of a spurt than an expert - surely an expert could write something more believable than the Golden Showers stuff. Funny, she doesn't look like a playa.

    I remember dropping that link here re Mueller when he was first put into power at the DOJ - and all these establishment types were giving him laurels he neither earned nor deserved. The thing that saved Hatfill was that the strain of anthrax used in the attack could not be obtained in the US. Sure seems like an obvious thing for the FBI to check. I think it was willful CYA from the beginning.

    … and in fact… is still. Maybe he's not there to 'find' evidence, but to destroy it.

  12. Trump - ever the master of the linguistic kill shot - should immediately label Mueller “Gestapo Mueller” & spread it far & wide.

    It helps that there was a real “ Gestapo Mueller” who also lives in infamy.

  13. Don, what's your opinion of Rosenstein appointing a Special Prosecutor?

    To my mind, to have appointed a Special Prosecutor in circumstances where the evidence of a Russian conspiracy was dubious, sleight, or nonexistent, is as big a scandal as Mueller's partisan investigation.

    To my mind, Rosenstein's actions are comparable to those of Mark Felt, the last Acting Director of the FBI who sought (and in Felt's case succeeded) to take down a sitting President.
