Brilliant – Justice Department Appoints Robert Mueller To Investigate 2016 Russian Election Interference…

Brilliant move.

…”Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it”….

Tremors tonight in the Deep Swamp. The deep cleaning machine just got fired up.  Watch how quiet and tenuously supportive the Democrats and their Left-Wing media cohorts are with this announcement.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to justice to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The appointment of a special counsel is excellent because it means Mueller has wide latitude to look into all of the 2016 Russian Conspiracy narratives the political opposition to Donald Trump has postulated.

Deputy AG Rosenstein did the appointing because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the ‘muh Russia conspiracy’, collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials. The results here will be splendid for the Trump administration because there is no ‘there’ there in the collusion narrative. The White House approved of Rosenstein’s decision.

This opens up an independent investigative path of: ♦The DNC leaking (Seth Rich), and ♦The impetus of the “Russian Dossier“, and ♦The Obama White House “surveillance and leaking” (Susan Rice/Evelyn Farkas), all the way to ♦John Podesta, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the Obama White House.

Remember, FBI Director James Comey specifically stated (March 20th) that he intentionally withheld notification of congress for the FBI counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016 and was premised on the ‘vast russian conspiracy theory‘.

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice only needed to confirm one aspect of the intelligence unmasking story for all of the dots to connect. She made that confirmation within two minutes of her interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

From the MSNBC transcript, emphasis mine:

Susan Rice @00:51 – …”Let me explain how this works. I was a National Security Adviser, my job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and CIA Director.; and every morning, to enable us to do that, we receive – from the intelligence community – a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for uson a daily basis– to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world.”

Note, right there. STOP. No need to go any further. There it is – Susan Rice is describing the Presidents’ Daily Briefing, aka the “PDB”. She continues:

“I received those reports, as did other officials, and there were occasions when I would receive a report in which, uh, a ‘U.S Person’ was referred to. Name, uh, not provided, just ‘U.S. Person’.

And sometimes in that context, in order to understand the importance in the report – and assess it’s significance, it was necessary to find out or request, who that U.S. official was.”

This is the important detail. Susan Rice was requesting unmasking of U.S. person’s names, which she moments later describes as “U.S. official[s]”, to understand the context and importance for the intelligence being given within the Presidents’ Daily Brief.

Under President Obama’s communication and intelligence directives, the Presidential Daily Briefing was widely shared with dozens of administration persons in various agencies.

From a Washington Post story explaining the PDB and Obama’s use therein. (again, emphasis mine):

(Washington Post) […] It’s the president’s book. And indeed, it is tailored to each president’s individual needs. CIA officers in 1961 designed what was initially known as the President’s Intelligence Checklist specifically for John F. Kennedy’s tastes, using punchy words and phrases while avoiding clunky bureaucratic language and annoying classification markings. That checklist evolved into the President’s Daily Brief in late 1964 , as the agency reformatted and retitled the book of secrets to appeal to Lyndon Johnson’s preferences. While the name has stuck, the content and format have continued to evolve. President Obama receives his in digital form and reads it on a tablet .

But while through most of its history the document has been marked “For the President’s Eyes Only,” the PDB has never gone to the president alone. The most restricted dissemination was in the early 1970s, when the book went only to President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who was dual-hatted as national security adviser and secretary of state.

In other administrations, the circle of readers has also included the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along with additional White House staffers. By 2013, Obama’s PDB was making its way to more than 30 recipients, including the president’s top strategic communications aide and speechwriter, and deputy secretaries of national security departments. (link)

The post article was written December 26th 2016, after the election – and was presumably written due to post-election media reports the intelligence community had concerns over sharing information with President-elect Trump; this was the preferred, and false, anti-Trump narrative for a few weeks. I digress.

The important aspect two fold: #1) the PDB is electronic viewable by POTUS Obama on his iPad; and #2) how many people were getting the PDB information 30+, against the backdrop of Rice’s admitted unmasking of names within the raw intelligence for PDB user comprehension.

There you can see that “more than 30 recipients” would be privy to the unmasked information within the PDB as an outcome of the protocols instituted by the White House and President Obama’s National Security Advising team.

From Rice’s MSNBC interview the departments of “State (John Kerry et al) and Defense (Ash Carter et al)”, along with CIA (Director John Brennan), NSA (Director Mike Rogers) and ODNI James Clapper, all participated.

As such, and as outlined by the Washington Post on distribution, deputies within Defense and State, along with “other national security departments” would have access to the unmasked PDB information.

Here’s where you realize within those “more than 30 recipients” you find people like Secretary Hillary Clinton, Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy and various high level officials in the Office of the Secretary and its Executive Secretariat (S/ES) past and present. This is also where the Deputy Secretaries of Defense like Dr. Evelyn Farkas come into play. All of these officials would be accessing, or at least have access to, the President’s Daily Brief, and the unmasked intelligence within it.

When you recognize how widely the Obama administration disseminated the PDB you begin to realize how easy it was for any foreign entity, including the Russians, to have access to the EXACT SAME daily intelligence brief as President Obama and his National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

An additional character within this wide-dissemination construct would be John Podesta. Remember, after Hillary Clinton stepped down from Secretary of State, she inserted, with Obama’s approval, John Podesta within the White House Senior Advisory staff to keep a communications line open with direct information. (As pictured below) Podesta remained in that position throughout 2013, 2014 and into 2015.

President Barack Obama, with Secretary of State John Kerry, participates in a secure video teleconference with Embassy Baghdad and Consulates General Erbil and Basrah, at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., Oct. 24, 2014.

Having a known entity like John Podesta with access to the PDB and the unmasked intelligence therein, puts the appropriate highlight on the risk carried by Russian hacking into Podesta’s electronic communications, stored data and email correspondence.

Is it any surprise Russian, or any foreign intelligence group, would then be making attempts to enter the unsecured private email accounts of Secretary Hillary Clinton and her top level staff?

And John Podesta is only one of numerous people who would have access to this PDB information. All of which would potentially be at risk of being read daily by enterprising hackers, or various spies, who would glean a gobsmacking level of information by actually reading the same unmasked intelligence as the President of the United States.

Oh, the angles are almost limitless.

Not only would President Obama and his entire NSC team be gathering operational political intelligence on their political adversaries to include President-Elect Donald Trump and his transition team, but they would also be gathering intelligence and unmasking it on other U.S. Officials…..

…..That same unmasked and widespread surveillance, under the auspices of intelligence gathering, was then shared with dozens of administration officials -beyond the likes of the National Security Council, Asst. Defense Secretary Farkas and politicos like John Podesta- which means it was more than likely reviewed, via hacking etc., by our most critical national enemies.

Follow that trail to where it leads and you’ll likely discover the real story that encompasses the motive to create the ‘vast Russian conspiracy‘.

It only took Susan Rice two minutes on MSNBC to highlight the entire motive.

Another March 2nd MSNBC interview takes a new context:

“I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.”

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to the Hill. … That’s why you had the leaking”.

[Link to Farkas MSNBC Interview and Transcript]

if they found out HOW we knew … that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence “,

Indeed they would Dr. Farkas. Indeed they would.

      Excellent point. The mere firing of an incompetent can be twisted into obstruction of justice by an inventive, grasping special counsel. I remember in other special counsel investigations that even making public statements denying culpability was argued to be somehow improper and possibly illegal. The situation is fraught with danger simply due to the nature of the beast. Anyone in this situation would be well served to retain counsel well versed in such matters. There are, as we see, traps being laid at every turn. Being innocent isn’t enough to successfully navigate a situation like this.

    Sundance…the posture is worse than you likely imagine. So how classified information gets spread around without too much detail is if I am on Red Team A and involved in operations and running sources and have the same clearance as my buddy on Red Team B in another province of the country and my other buddy just rotated back home and is in DC area or wherever…as long as we all have the same clearances, I can email/forward say my source notes, intelligence summaries, graphic intelligence summaries (GRINTSUM), to those buddies of my mine along with a wink, wink don’t share this with anyone else.

    Do they have the clearance to view it? Yes. Should they be viewing it? Depends if they’ve been read on to the same program though unlikely as they are either in a different province with different objectives and my other buddy is now back home and working from a SCIF there but likely does not “need to know” about our operations anymore.

    Now compound this with my buddies who have their own close buddies and next thing you know the “Intel” meant for a certain operation is now spread to easily a hundred people or more and should have stayed on the FOB and with approx 10-12 people who needed to know only.

    THIS is how PDBs and other like Intel get spread throughout the community and also how Trump has massive leaks coming from my community who do not like him. There is nothing stopping an analyst with a TS/SCI clearance from copying and pasting portions of briefs or entire reports and sending them via classified email to a “buddy”. This is how HRC and Huma transferred intelligence I’m 99 percent sure.

    So last week, I was going through a license check on the highway, had everybody lined up. When I pulled up to the police officer, I greeted him, he acknowledged the same and asked to see my license and registration. He looked it over, and I told him I appreciated his service and we support the police. He thanked me, handed me my papers back and I drove on my way.

    Since I hadn’t done anything wrong, I never had any worries about being arrested…. As a matter of fact, I was glad to see them out there, because I know there’s intoxicated drivers driving around making my life and other people’s lives worse. Hopefully they caught some of those.

      Huh?

      The more correct analogy would be it’s more like your neighbor (Hillary/DNC/Swampers) who beats and abuses their children calls social services on you (one who has never mistreated your children). The social services team comes in, takes your children puts them in foster care, investigates every crevice of your life, and finally after months/years of bureaucratic red tape they conclude you did nothing wrong (if you are lucky and get a fair hearing) but your name will forever be in their system.

      And the original child abusing neighbor is never investigated, let alone charged with anything.

      Good analogy. If Trump had anything to hide he would resist appointing a SC tooth and nail. Explains why Obozo never appointed any SC. Obozo had plenty to hide and the MSM was more then happy to ignore them all. The benefit of the SC is it shuts the Dems up and makes them wonder what else he will find. There are still smart people left in the Dem party. Behind all the hysteria the smart ones know the Trump-Russia monologue only gets them so far but has the huge potential to boomerang badly back on them. Rarely in politics does one side dominate the momentum all the time.

        Why does appointing an SC shut the Dems up? It just gives them a justification for continuing to set their hair on fire because Trump is under investigation and there has to be something there or an SC wouldn’t have been appointed. Also, why should we assume that the WaPo and NYT are going to stop pushing a new fake narrative everyday? If there have been leaks from the IC, why would they stop when they smell blood? And if there were no leaks, the WaPo and NYT will just keep making them up.

        Reagan lost most of his second term to one of the witch hunts It kept going and going and even continued up to GHWB’s election in 1988 when they were threatening to indict Casper Weinberger.

        I hope Sundance is correct about all of this and we can put these stupid Russian idiocies to rest and maybe get after some of the actual criminals on the Dem side. This will also make it very hard for Trump to make any progress with Putin.

            This also serves other purposes:
            1)All issues relating to this that come to DOJ can be referred to Mueller–freeing up the rest of the DOJ to pursue other issues—drugs, crime, immigration,voting issues, pedos etc.
            yet oversight and control remains in the DOJ
            2) This special council can pursue criminal charges (like leaking and unmasking etc.)
            3)It can utilize data already collected by the FBI instead of starting from scratch
            4) It MAY eventually water down the congressional oversight investigations (who will want to openly talk to congress—if this committee can come back and grab them for criminality?)
            5) Mueller is not a camera hog–but more discrete–less feeding frenzy for the press.

    I disagree with Sundance, I don’t see how this new special counsel is going to investigate the leaks or the unlawful unmasking of citizens. I think this is a definite pass for Obama, Rice and Hillary.
    The focus of this special counsel is to investigate the extent of Russian interference in our 2016 election and possible collusion. I believe that he will stay in that lane on diverging to discover possible campaign finance violations by Trump or someone connected to him taking money from a Russian entity, which is not unusual in Washington DC, all those lobbyist and politicians on both side take money from Russia. I don’t read anything in that memo about unmasking or leaks.
    I think Mueller is a stand up guy but he was a Bush/Obama guy and he is going to have to hire people, which certainly the Clinton or Obama people will get in there (they have worked with him before and people tend to hire people they know) and they will steer this independent counsel away from Obama and Clinton and on Team Trump.
    My only hope is Jeff Session is conducting an investigation into the unmasking and leaks and he makes someone pay.

    I still don’t understand what evidence there is that Russia hacked the DNC server or phished Podestra. Outsourcing the actual intel investigation to CrowdStrike. How can their be collusion if Russia didn’t do the hack?

      The complete russian narrative is predicated on the assumption that Russia hacked the DNC for Trump political gain. That narrative is shown to be fiction when you take into account that Seth Rich was the leaker of DNC emails to wikileaks.

      That is the avenue of investigation that will show partisan collusion to put Hillary Clinton on the pedestal as the Dems candidate, while fully burying Sanders.

      If the SC inbestigation leads tjat way, away from the russians and to the Clinton campaign, Clinton’s own statement about “…all of us are going to be swinging from nooses…” (paraphrased) has much more weight behind it.

      This is the reason the Dems are so quiet about this at the moment. They were sure PDJT was going to disallow a special prosecutor. Now their doom may be waiting.

      Seems to me now that he can do all the things I was so upset that Sessions could not do because of his recusal. I looked at the scope in his appointment and it is broad. He can do these things without political spin attached by the left. Looks like he has authority to prosecute and investigate anyone at all without political baggage. He will have a grand jury I think. He can subpoena the Pee Pee Papers and even Obama and Hillary. He can get the DNC server if CrowdStrike has not ‘lost’ it. He can go after the Clinton IT techs. Once the investigation shows Trump is in the clear it will turn to the democrats of the Obama administration. All of their false claims are open now for real investigation I think. Anyone who mouthed off might be called to the grand jury. Nothing is going to go the way the MSM hopes it will. Obama himself is in jeopardy now. if Sessions or the Trump DOJ had gone after Obama it would have been easy to play the good cop bad cop scheme. The SC can do it. There is so much evidence laying around out in the open it is the Yellow Brick Road. He can grab the Weiner computer and Seth Rich computer. All of the scheme is now out of the MSM and Congress Kangaroo Court and instigation and it to the hands of a legal procedure clearly laid out in law. It will deprive the democrats of their fake investigation. Leakers of information now will face severe criminal penalties. When it sinks in on the leftists just how vulnerable they are it is going to be epic. Our good president can now forge ahead with the MAGA agenda he got elected on and the Swamp will self destruct. I don’t think he has ‘prosecutorial discretion’ on these crimes. Trying now to find out. If he does not, and is bound to follow the evidence it will be follow the leader for plea bargains and a classic small fry leading up to the Big Fish. This is a safe harbor for those who want to come forward. That might be the most important fear factor of the leftists when it sinks in.

    Mueller may cause problems for Flynn and Manafort but Trump already got rid of them and is protected.

    Unless you think Trump personally coordinated with the Russian government on the release of the Podesta/DNC e-mails, he is safe. And the democrats lost the rallying cry that was energizing their base.

    This appointment simply means that this matter will drag on for years, leaking damaging information weekly, giving the Dems fundraising opportunities. The purpose is to derail Trump. I think it may have already done that. Remember, the process is the punishment.

    I don’t trust anyone who is or was part of the DC, District of Criminals, establishment, which Mueller is one of. At this point, with the so-called Comey “memo”, it seems quite obvious that the Deep State is going to create, invent or do whatever is necessary to come up with the evidence to destroy Trump. They have no other choice. It’s him or them, and the them will bring down almost our entire government if the truth is ever exposed. Someone already posted a video with Comey admitting on May 3rd that no one ever coerced or even asked him to stop investigating anything. Now three weeks later he is saying the exact opposite. Most of the American people will not get the truth because they don’t make time to find it, and are just willing to be led around like sheep. It’s the path of least resistance after all.

  26. Got to disagree with most of the conservatives on this one. They are all trying to put a smiley face on it, and I think it’s a disaster. Rod Rosenstein’s idea of a job description for the special prosecutor focuses on the Russia collusion accusation which has been discredited everyplace. It mentions NOTHING else…nothing about Clinton and Russia, nothing about emails.

    The only way to explain that in my mind is as Tom Fitton and Byron York did…this is awful. Any hope that the special prosecutor will also look at those concerns is pure, 100% hope.

    That said, if Trump keeps appointing establishment types to key positions, then he can expect establishment results to follow. He investigated Clinton at Whitewater and found nothing. Hmmmm….

    It just boggles the mind.

    DNC IT EMPLOYEE SETH RICH MURDER MYSTERY SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY SPECIAL COUNSEL

    The controversy swirling around the Trump Presidency is rooted in accusations that Trump colluded with the Russians to sway the election. Foremost were the charges that the Russians hacked the DNC computers and provided information to Wikileaks that was detrimental to HRC on Trumps behalf.

    With the revelation that slain DNC IT employee Seth Rich had contacts with Wikileaks it is a now imperative that his actions should be included in the Russian meddling investigation.

    SETH RICH was the young IT Guy who worked for the DNC who was murdered on July 10th 2016 walking home after a night out. It appears that Mr. Rich NOT a RUSSIAN hack of the DNC Computer system was responsible for most of the documents that were provided to Wikileaks. Below please find the supporting evidence to support this conclusion.

    1) Mr. Rich’s Wallet & Cell Phone were still on his body when he was found. Mr. Rich was an ardent supporter of Bernie Sanders

    2) Mr. Rich was killed shortly after an outside IT Firm hired by the DNC to do a Forensic Audit of their IT System completed their work.

    3) A Forensic Audit by the FBI of Mr. Rich’s found over 40K DNC E-Mails on his Computer. Mr. Rich as an IT help desk person should NOT have had them on his computer.

    4) Mr. Riche’ s Computer is NOW unable to be located the FBI and D.C. Metro Police dispute who had final Custody.

    5) The Body Camera from the D.C. Metro Police who responded to the incident is now unable to be located.

    6) Mr. Rich lived for two hours after he reached the hospital yet we have no indication he was questioned and what he did or did not say to the D.C. Metro Police.

    7) Mr. Rich has been identified as having been in contact with the deceased CO- Founder of Wiki leaks via e-mail and phone

    8) Mr. Rich has been identified as the former British Ambassador from Kyrgrzstan as the individual he met in Rick Creek Park and received a data stick containing the e-mails that Wiki Leaks released.

    9) The spokesperson blasting reports of links to Wikileaks is a known democratic operative

    10) The FBI was denied access to the DNC computers in the original hacking investigation.

    • That was not mentioned in the special prosecutor’s appointment. Emails weren’t mentioned. Clinton Foundation wasn’t mentioned. Podesta, Clinton, etc….none of it even mentioned.

      It will not be looked at. Otherwise, it would have been mentioned. This is pure, unadulterated Trump take down.

      I’m concerned too. Special Prosecutors do what they want. And since if you’re like me, you think there’s no there there, no crime to investigate. Isn’t a SP called in only when a crime has definitely occurred? There’s no crime here!

      So what’s he going to investigate? How many years is he going to be at it? The last SP I recall was that Fitzgerald monster who sent a totally innocent man to prison (Scooter Libby). And he did that KNOWING Libby didn’t do what he was accused of (it was that slug Armitage all the time).

      I don’t know, Sundance. I just don’t know. I sure want you to be right.

        There was no crime in the ‘outing’ of Valerie Plame as a CIA Agent either. The SP KNEW who had divulged the information – Richard Armitage, State Department. They still dug and dug for three years, and Scooter Libby who had committed no crime, finally received several years in the Graybar Hotel, all expenses paid, and the permanent title ‘felon’.

    I think that within a few months we will know if Mueller is honest. There will be leaks no matter how hard they try to contain them. If we hear that Meuller is actually looking into who leaked the DNC emails (Seth Rich seems a likely suspect at this point), that’s a good thing. If, on the other hand, he merely accepts the DC/MSM line that the Russians were somehow involved and starts from that premise, his appointment will be a disaster.

    In order to prove that someone colluded with Russia, someone needs to PROVE that Russia was involved in the first place. Takes two to tango. What has always been missing is the proof of the premise. In my view, at MOST Russia planted some fake stories here and there (not unusual, to be expected) during the campaign. I do not believe they had anything whatsoever to do with the DNC situation, the sine qua non of the “collusion” meme, thus no “collusion” even possible on that front.

    Today President Trump referred to this investigation as “the biggest witchhunt of a politician in American history”, noting that a special counsel was never appointed despite HRC’s numerous illegal acts, and the scandals rife in the Obama administration. McCain was thrilled, on the other hand, lauding Mueller while STILL insisting on congressional investigations, full speed ahead.

    I’m with President Trump on this. It’s a witchhunt, and we’ll see if Mueller has the fortitude and honesty to actually get to the bottom of what happened rather than allowing himself to be used as a tool of the dems and the McCain-style never-Trumpers. First logical step would be to look into the Seth Rich matter. We’ll see soon.

    I’m with Sherlock. It’s a witchhunt. But what’s missing completely from the Trump side is any sign of a coherent rebuttal strategy to these endless, daily attacks. The rope-a-dope response is failing. And I have to admit, I’m tired of Trump’s tweets. They don’t add any value.

    In the business world, I like to think that a man’s word is his bond. This is Trump’s world. But now he’s in Washington, where just about everyone around him is a liar, prevaricator, thief, looter and swamp boat owner. He and his advisors need to adopt a counter-strategy. Trump’s in the news all the time, but it seems to me the Democrats are controlling the narrative.

    Trump has got to start punching back–and I don’t mean take to tweeting. I want power punches, knockout blows. Why should he wait for anyone to exonerate him? If the Dems can manage, they’ll keep these slow slow slow investigations going on for three years. Trump is president. He is not without power. I’m beginning to think he should declassify all relevant material on these bogus investigations and send it out to the press and blogs. Outleak the leakers.

Every time I think it is a slam dunk, and the corrupt officials in D.C. will go to jail, they double down on the Trump narrative of the day. They act like winners and continue to expose Republicans for being part of the uniparty. The swamp seems to get deeper with each passing day.

    Sundance’s theory, along with many here who accept it at face value, is encouraging and hopefully accurate. However, this could also backfire and people need to be aware of that. The Special Prosecutor can look into anything and essentially for as long as they want. He could pursue rabbit trails against Trump instead of, as talked about by Sundance, pursuing what the Democrats have done. We can’t forget that he worked for George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He may very well have UniParty loyalties. This could be a very bad thing, too, depending on what his true motivations are.

      It seems to me that the only people hurt by the investigations are Republicans. The Democrats seem to escape any culpability for their criminal behavior. They hold show trials that make the electorate think they are doing something to curb the corruption with no indictments, no guilty verdicts, and no jail time. Trey Gowdy and the Benghazi hearing is a glaring example. I hope that I am wrong.

    I’d bet if you followed Mueller’s story (A BLUEBLOOD BROOKLINE MA LAWYER) you’ll find he’s a hillary/obama guy all the way – and that does not bode well for Donald Trump

    Trump’s strategy reminds me of Manstein’s backhand blow. He’s luring them into a pocket where the cannot maneuver. Even his tweet is about making them believe he is afraid so that they will advance into the pocket he has created for them. Once they do, the jaws of the trap will snap shut and he will cut the head of the spearhead off. He’s waiting because he’s trying to shake out as many turncoats as he can so he can get them all in one fell swoop. Even the tweet last night is part of the strategy. At least it has all the earmarks of it.

    Judicial Watch is publishing some very bad things about Mueller. He appears to be yet another muslim apologist.

    “The records obtained as part of Judicial Watch’s lawsuit show that Mueller, who served 12 years as FBI chief, met with the Islamic organizations on February 8, 2012 to hear their demands. Shortly later the director assured the Muslim groups that he had ordered the removal of presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices nationwide. The purge was part of a broader Islamist operation designed to influence the opinions and actions of persons, institutions, governments and the public at-large. The records obtained by Judicial Watch also show similar incidents of Islamic influence operations at the Departments of Justice and State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Obama White House.”

    Independent Counsel is not legal in this issue. Get your law straight. The Special Counsel law – can’t be used for a Foreign Counterintelligence issue (Tony Shaffer tweet): Russia=foreign.

    Secondly; immaturity assumes Mueller was put in place to find truth. Mueller is in place to FIND something to prosecute Trump with. Mueller has been given authority to prosecute Trump. Did you miss that?

    Do you assume the devious appointment of Mueller, behind the mask of “Independent Counsel” will be honest? Why don’t you assume he will not be honest? What then? When this applauded “independent Counsel” accuses Trump through convoluted interpretation of the classified information you won’t be allowed to read? What then, as we listen to legal-speak for impeachment? Disbelief that the savior who appears to be honest and “independent” is neither? Obama will be behind the selection of Mueller; Obama never gets his hands dirty; he uses others to do the dirty work.
    Mueller, the clever devious business man-Counselor has enriched himself by two successful high dollar business transactions with the Russian Govt. recently.
