I repeatedly told readers Mueller is incompetent. He is what passes in Washington for competence because he has had his ticket punched despite a lack of success.
He is the Hillary of prosecutors.
Today's story by ABC News -- "Michael Cohen pleads guilty to lying to Congress in new deal with Mueller in Trump-Russia probe" -- confirms the idiocy of the special counsel.
Any cross examination would boil down to one question, "Mister Cohen, have you ever lied under oath?"
Juries can (and should) ignore anything a man who lies under oath says under oath.
But journalists are ecstatic. They think someone has nailed the target of their hate these past two years.
The ABC News list of bylines on its story was headed by Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos, who is the biggest Bigfoot at ABC.
ABC News reported, "Cohen’s earlier plea deal with federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York implicated President Trump in campaign finance felonies. Since then, Cohen has spent more than 70 hours in interviews with Mueller's team. The questioning has focused on contacts with Russians by Trump associates during the campaign, Trump’s business ties to Russia, obstruction of justice and talk of possible pardons, sources familiar with the discussions have told ABC News."
Identifying former Clinton appointee Kendall Coffey only as a former federal prosecutor, ABC News quoted him as saying, "The potential significance of Cohen’s cooperation is immense."
His potential insignificance is equally immense.
Mueller looks like Efrem Zimbalist Jr. but performs like Pee Wee Herman.
Let me go over this again. As FBI director, Mueller personally headed the investigation of the post-9/11 anthrax attack, which killed five people. For 5 1/2 years, he pursued the wrong man. The FBI harassed the man. The case was never solved. Taxpayers paid $5.8 million to settle a lawsuit by the victim.
It is sad that we give men like Mueller so much power.
Bush 43 failed to fire Mueller.
President Trump sized Mueller up and realized he is a fool, which is why he never hired him and has never fired him.
