Dowd Nails It – Former Trump Attorney Outlines Insufferable Behavior of Mueller and Rosenstein in Perpetrating Political Russia Hoax…

ABC conducted an extremely interesting interview with former Trump Attorney John Dowd that the media outlet will likely keep far away from their mainstream broadcast and print reporting.

The interview is exceptionally interesting because Dowd outlines how incredibly false all prior reporting has been surrounding the Mueller investigation and the background of the contacts and discussions between Trump’s legal team, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein.

Additionally, within the interview itself, when you stand back and absorb the details of what he discusses, you can clearly see why there came a point when the Trump legal team needed to shift strategies and accept that Mueller and Rosenstein had allowed the politics of the ‘investigation’ to shape their direction. It’s quite a remarkable conversation.

The entire transcript is HERE.  I would strongly suggest listening to the podcast. I’m pulling some excerpts.

Dowd immediately says he doesn’t think the Mueller report will highlight anything regarding the President.  The basis for this belief is what CTH has already outlined here regarding William Barr {Go Deep}.

“There’s nothin’ here.” The idea that you would take that information and make it public, you know, violates the whole concept of the grand jury. What’s the grand jury for? To protect the innocent.

Dowd is then asked about his opinion of Robert Mueller, and the approach to the investigation, who Dowd knows very well and has worked with in the past:

PHILLIPS: Do you respect what Mueller is doing? I know you know Mueller well.

DOWD: Well, I respected it in the beginning. And I started out. And I– it’s my s– my style is I always trust the other side, until I didn’t. In my opinion, on March 5th [2018], we were done. He had everything. He said he had everything. He told me that no one had lied. He told me they had every document we asked for. He told me that it was nothing more. He told me that the president was not a target. That is, he did not have any exposure, that he was a witness subject, which is perfectly normal for someone’s conduct you’re looking at, but they don’t have exposure.

What people don’t understand about the president, and I think the same would be w– with you, is y– you have too much information in your life. When you go back and talk about f– Flynn or Comey, those events, while magnified in the media, are nothin’, not compared to the threat of the Soviet Union, the threat of the– China, dealing with Japan, dealing with Korea. I mean, the amount of information that he intakes every day, gets prepared for, is staggering. And in my questioning him or talking to him, he questioned w– you know, first question, easy. Second question, easy. Third question, he wasn’t sure. And he doesn’t like being unsure. So he’ll guess. There’s your trap, right there. It’s not whether he lies or not. Everybody wants to get into this, you know– this integrity business. It’s not a matter of integrity. It’s overload.

Dowd clearly states that by March 5th, 2018 (ten months after Mueller started in May 2017) Robert Mueller had all the central facts about President Trump that surrounded the accusations and claims.  And Mueller did not have anything to indicate President Trump had engaged in anything as claimed by the media; and told the Trump legal team exactly that.

VLASTO: But what do you think Mueller’s been doing’, then? That was March that you left, right, March of last year, 2018. What do you– why– what do you think has taken Mueller so long?

DOWD: I don’t know. All I can tell you is what I do know. And I know a lot. Because as people have found out, we communicate on this side of the fence. Matter of fact, we’ve got, probably, better intelligence than they do. You know– without questioning anybody’s good faith, ’cause there are some very good people over there– it– it’s been– it’s been a waste of time. And it’s been petty. And it’s been bureaucratic. And you don’t need to do that. When you’re dealing at this level, when you’re dealing at this level, you’re playing’ the World Series, okay? And you don’t– you don’t– you don’t get down with the petty stuff here.

In essence Dowd is saying that Mueller and Rosenstein decided the entire fiasco was so politically charged, so elevated by media and political drum-beating, they needed to shape the investigative paths based on political values and not simple reviews of lawfulness.

And with that inflection point; within the acceptance that this wasn’t going to be a legal matter based on evidence or lack thereof; the Trump legal approach needed to shift from legal concern/defense to political concern/defense.   That’s why there were changes within the Trump legal team.

VLASTO: Well, you must know [William] Barr rather well, I assume–

DOWD: I– you know, I don’t know, I know of him. And I left– I had left the department, when he was attorney general. But he was a great attorney general. He did a terrific job. And I am so pleased that he’s gonna be back. ‘Cause he knows the place from top to bottom. And he’s very bright. And he’s gonna– he’s gonna call it right down the middle and do a good job.

PHILLIPS: That’s quite the opposite from what you’ve said about– the leadership of the Justice Department. I mean, you have just lambasted, (LAUGH) you know, everybody else previously. So you’re seeing a shift here.

DOWD: Well, look. I you know, I tried to deal with Rosenstein. Early on, we wrote a letter to Mueller, saying, “Look. Comey’s the accuser in this phony investigation. We think there are other issues in– regarding his conduct, as to the origin of this whole business.” Turns out, not only was I right, but Comey admitted there were no facts to investigate the president at all. There was no collusion. So—I, and then, so– Bob said he wasn’t looking’ at it. So I wrote to Rosenstein. He blew me off. That’s not leadership. That’s not accountability. This is a very serious– I mean, we were very serious. And we did it in writing. We did it politely. We did it confidentially. And he just blew us off. So I lost all respect for Rod Rosenstein. And Sessions, I don’t know what he was doing. I’m not sure Sessions knows what he was doing’.

Again Dowd outlining the problem created by Rosenstein and faced by Mueller; there is nothing to investigate because there is no Russian collusion/conspiracy to begin with.  Rosenstein goes silent toward the original Trump legal team because essentially Rosenstein knows he did a big stupid by opening the investigation in the first place.

Mueller and Rosenstein are/were stuck in a political conundrum, under the auspices of an investigation that was fraudulently based from the outset.  Extraction from their self-created situation is only possible by exploiting a political escape route.

DOWD: […] I know what the case is. There is no case. And my job is to sorta bring that home. And we did the very best we could to bring it home. I think it is coming’ home. And I think it’s coming’ home in the same shape. And you know, and then, you know, there are people in the press, who say, “Well, he must have s– surprise.” He didn’t have– I know exactly what he [Mueller] has. I know exactly what every witness said, what every document said. It’s– I know exactly what he asked. And I know what– I know what– you know, what the –what the conclusion or the result is. So–

PHILLIPS: What does he have? What’s the result? What’s the conclusion?

DOWD: Decline [to prosecute]. There’s no basis. There’s no exposure. It’s been a terrible waste of time.

What’s worse is let’s get on the other side of this, how it all happened. This is one of the greatest frauds this country’s ever seen. And I’m just shocked that Bob Mueller didn’t call it that way and say, “I’m being used.” I would’ve done that. If I were in his shoes in this thing, I’d have gone to the– I’d have gone to Sessions and Rosenstein and said, “Look. This is nonsense. We are being used by a cabal in the F.B.I. to get even.”

This is awful. I mean, the corruption — at the top of the F.B.I. is staggering. And that’s how this all happened. And by the way, look at what the F.B.I. witnesses have said. “I know w– I know about no collusion.” I mean, Comey knew nothing about collusion.  So what are we doing then?

VLASTO: How do you think history will look at the Mueller investigation ten years from now, 20 years from now?

DOWD: Not well.

PHILLIPS: Robert Mueller. How will he go down in history?

DOWD: I don’t know. He’s gonna have to decide that.

PHILLIPS: Donald J. Trump.

DOWD: Full plate. A man with, a man with a– with a big heart who means well, but has, you know, had all kinds of challenges. But he– but he– you know, I’m in his corner. You know why I’m in his corner? ‘Cause he’s the boss. He governs this country.

FUBAR Summary:  •Rosenstein buckled under political and media pressure to create the Mueller special counsel.  •AFTER the FBI originating corruption began to surface (June/July 2017) Mueller saw the ruse and understood where the investigation would be forced to head… and asked Rosenstein for the “scope memo“, in part because the investigative trail was obviously going to circle back to the FBI origination…. and that had to be avoided (politically self damaging for both Rosenstein and former FBI Director Mueller’s institution).  •Addtionally, the same corrupt people who created the 2016 spygate fiasco were also comrades of Mueller (FBI) and Rosenstein (DOJ). •As a direct outcome, the Mueller/Rosenstein self-preservation approach, which included the preservation of the institutions, then became the primary focus of the investigation…. which included the need for charges against someone, anyone, including Russians (they never anticipated showing up to defend themselves, ie concord) to cloud the political fiasco they were both caught up in…. which further spurred the self-fulfilling prophecy of Mueller -originally fraudulent- investigation becoming the necessary cover as described below:

♦(1) Create an investigation – Just by creating the investigation it is then used as a shield by any corrupt FBI/DOJ official who would find himself/herself under downstream congressional investigation.  Former officials being deposed/questioned by IG Horowitz or Congress could then say they are unable to answer those questions due to the ongoing special counsel investigation.  In this way Mueller provides cover for ideologically aligned deep state officials; and preserves institutional appearances.

♦(2)  Use the investigation to keep any and all inquiry focused away from the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity that took place in 2015, 2016, 2017.  Keep the media narrative looking somewhere, anywhere, other than directly at the epicenter of the issues. In this way, Mueller provides distraction and creates talking points against the Trump administration that benefit his self-preserving intent.

♦(3) Use the investigation to suck-up, absorb, any damaging investigative material that might surface as a result of tangentially related inquiry.  Example: control the exposure of evidence against classified leak participants like SSCI Director of Security, James Wolfe; and/or block IG Horowitz from seeing material related to the FISA abuse scandal and “spygate”.  In this way Mueller provides cover for the institutions, the administrative state, and the accepted standard system within DC.

It wasn’t by original intent, but rather a specific outcome of bureaucratic bullshit, that Mueller and Rosenstein ended up creating a bubble that made those objectives of the Mueller investigation become the primary consideration.  And in all of these insufferable and convoluted objectives the Mueller special counsel has been stunningly effective.

That insufferable pile of crap covered in media noise is exactly why Rosenstein will exit the DOJ side-by-side with Robert Mueller.

FUBAR !!

Again, I strongly urge people to listen to the interview. It starts around 08:00 of the podcast below:

.

[…] … This is one of the greatest frauds this country’s ever seen. And I’m just shocked that Bob Mueller didn’t call it that way and say, “I’m being used.” I would’ve done that. If I were in his shoes in this thing, I’d have gone to the– I’d have gone to Sessions and Rosenstein and said, “Look. This is nonsense. We are being used by a cabal in the F.B.I. to get even.”….

But he couldn’t.

You know why?

Because Mueller views the FBI as an institution that is part of his personal legacy.

And the corrupt FBI cabal headed by Comey, McCabe and Baker, knew that.

That’s ultimately also Mueller’s “higher loyalty”.

  1. Mueller was picked far in advance to the the “insurance policy” against Trump, as we reported in May of last year:

    Meet the Strzok-Page “Insurance Policy”
    https://chaletbooks.com/chaletreports/?p=1184

    In fact, we believe planning for Mueller to step into the fray may have begun as early as 22 March 2016, et seq. when Mueller called to arrange a meeting at the White House, as detailed in a timeline in this article:

    CIA Crimes: How John Brennan Weaponized the CIA and FBI, and Conspired with Russia and Harry Reid to Frame Trump—PART B
    https://chaletbooks.com/chaletreports/?p=1443

    We have faced all the expected phenomena that Gandhi outlined: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

    Our research and analysis has subsequently proved out to be true, and continues to prove out to be true as more facts surface.

      Sidney Powell commented last night on CTH that Mueller was part of Clinton’s abuse of her own emails as SOS. If that is the case, Mueller is that part of the deep state, criminally running our government, while Hillary was SOS. So, read the tea leaves.

          HRC is an expert at running out the clock, as in Uranium One and Benghazi. Eventually she bumps up against the statue of limitations and she always has enough complicit embeds to make sure she goes unscathed.

          There is no stomach for indicting, prosecuting, trying and sentencing any of this bunch. The Awan Brothers just got a pass and other than a handful of others that got fired, there’s no accountability. People like Lisa Page suffered some embarrassment but in 5 years very few will remember her name.

          It’s good to hear somebody like Dowd speak some truth but even diehard’s like Gregg Jarrett are resigning themselves to ‘nothing will be done’.

          If William Barr lets all this die and no one is held accountable and property punished, the rule of law is dead. The DOJ under Obama began the downward spiral, Sessions stood watch as it went down further. If Barr does nothing, the DOJ will be seen only as a bunch of weaponized, jack-booted enforcers in business strictly to aid the Democrat Party. And settle any scores the Dem’s may want carried out.

          If Wray doesn’t step down so a non partisan, highly ethical law enforcement professional can take over at the FBI, if the Comey style of corrupt leadership its allowed to continue, the FBI is forever tarnished, as well. Americans have lost faith and trust now, it will get worse if a major shakeup doesn’t occur during the Trump Administration.

            Let’s keep pushing. The public story keeps getting clearer and more accurate to our understanding. As we saw during the most recent rally, Trump is becoming ever more specific and pointed in his comments. Remember, the place we are at with the fake Russia collusion/coup is with very little Trump input other than tweets. But those tweets and information releases are getting us closer.

            As soon as Barr applies some pressure, and I think he will, the whole thing may fall apart. I think at a minimum, the FBI and DOJ will see major changes. Whether people get the executions they deserve or any jail time remains to be seen.

          He’s already in too deep. In my politically naive days I saw a “puff piece” on Mueller in Catholic New York, after his appointment to the FBI. I caught him in a tiny white lie, I believe it was a literary reference. I can’t recall the details at this point, but it begged the question – why should a man with such power and influence choose to lie abut something so inconsequential outside a classroom or book club? It suggested a deep rooted sense of inadequacy or – also related – a need for “disguise.”

        Very brave of Mr. Dowd to speak out. Will his comments earn him a late night frog march in PJ’s and bare feet out to the curb, manhandled by Wray’s (Obama’s) well armed, well trained citizen military-style force ? After all, he knows Donald Trump and once represented him. That’s enough apparently to face prison time.

        God willing and if the crick don’t rise, Mueller’s scam will quietly wind down into nothing. It’s incalculable what President Trump and his family have suffered, all because the vindictive, hateful Hillary got beat. For what she has wrought, the Clinton Foundation ought to be forced to pay for The Wall.

        Now we’ll wait and see what the Southern District of New York has in store. Andy McCarthy and others claim the fun isn’t quite over just yet. Let’s hope he and all the other legal ‘experts’ are wrong.

I thought at the time it was incriminating info on Mr. & Mrs. Wiener were keeping on the Clintons. Ha! If only! Now we know. Hey AG to be Barr, look into that, would ja?

        The FBI needs a reason to get a warrant and go back and look at that particular piece of evidence – thoroughly this time! Reopening the Hillary email investigation would suffice. Who knows what else they might find.

      They were in trouble. They sat on the laptop for nearly one month. In that time, maybe someone actually makes de-duplication software to speed up review of Weiner emails. Instead, the thing blows up in public DAYS BEFORE the election. Sure, they scrambled. It looks like they sabotaged the Old Bat when McCabe was told by someone (Brennan? Either directly or via Strzok?) to sit on the laptop and do nothing.

        What’s interesting is the petty attacks seem to be targeting Infowars Alex Jones. Hillary has a nutty hatred for infowars. Wouldn’t be surprised if Mueller works for her. Barr also handled the Clintons under the code name Robert Johnson. The book Compromised is interesting. I could see Barr going after the Clintons now that Bush Sr passed away. But I could see Barr letting her go because the Clintons know too much.

        Not only Mueller winding down, but all the committees wrapping up as well. They know it’s done. As the latest member on the Burr committee just said on FNC… “It’s over.”

        So, now RR has to run out of the picture. Sure can’t be there once Barr is there and can see WTH was going on.

        What I wonder is how much Barr is willing to do to those like Comey, RR and then on to the real culprits.. Brennan, Yates, Rice etc? Seems to me you can’t go down that road unless you want to know the whole truth and expose it. Will he have to stomach to expose the coup? I’m skeptical how you separate them.

      There appears to be more information in this interview than the ABC interview has. Dowd explains his feelings and conclusions to Kilmeade about this “counterintelligence” investigation – Dowd’s comments on that are priceless.

      Dowd confirms what Sundance – and the President – has been saying all along – Mueller is not a good guy at all.

      One other tidbit – Dowd still talks with the Pres and the Pres’s legal team, and has a great deal of respect and affection for Pres Trump.
      Dowd did not leave b/c of the President, Dowd left b/c Mueller LIED to Dowd.

          Starfcker has an important point. I suspected on the day Mueller was appointed he was supposed to take down the President. Everyone knows Muelker historically is brought in to frame someone. As Ray McGovern stated “Mueller is a deep state Thug”.

          I too think to some extent Dowd is pretending to be naive and not to know it was a coup. He doth protest too much. Also this counter intelligence tactic had been used before- in the president candidate Larouche takedown that Mueller led and involved the Brits. In our case PTrump was elected where Larouch was ruined. Dowd should have known this. Don’t forget Hannity tried to sell us on Comey was a good guy then again on Mueller is a good guy. The latter sales job didn’t work for long. We’re getting an even hard sell job on William Barr.

          At best Barr might clean this up as a limited hangout- hang low level bad guys to cover the bigger ones. It’s weird the president, lawyers, congress, and senate could do nothing. The lack of forcing oversight on the scope letter is bizarre- it like they all want to pretend not to know.

          Counter intelligence invoked on Larouche resulted in him not having constitutional rights. PTrump’s “counter intelligence” also involves wacky justice circumventing the constitution.

          Recall this quote: Sen Daniel K Inouye (HI) in 1987‼️”There exists a shadowy Government w/its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, & the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks+balances+free from the law itself”

          If there isn’t a big roundup of all of them for indictments- we know this is just a limit hangout type cleanup. If Mueller and Hillary are protected – then we know the deep state is alive and well. The United States is likely entering into some new form of governance – post constitutional.

    With all the names of those involved and all of them having corresponded through Hillary’s server, it is a very interesting hypothesis that :

    “Hillary Clinton’s home server was the spark that started the whole show, if anyone was let near the truth they were all at risk, so the great cover-up began.”

Trump sees this as well, which is why he personally started a year ago calling it the “Mueller Witch Hunt”. Trump’s far too clever to attack a seated prosecutor personally, unless he knew he was standing on firm ground legally and electorally.

    When Trump moved Dowd aside and brought in Giuliani a year ago, it was obvious Trump had recognized this was all moving fully to a political arena, and he was bringing in political horsepower to do the job. Horses for courses, as they say. Dowd just confirmed all this, in spades.

    I believe the “deal” has been struck. I believe it’s good short term and bad long term.

    Mueller, et al, will slowly fade into the distance without any “report”. If there are no findings of criminality or collusion with a foreign government, then the “rules” say the Grand Jury will be shut down, no report will be issued and no innocent person will be defamed. (This does not, of course, prevent “leaks” which will be continually used to undermine our President and his agenda). These leaks will be largely manufactured and the MSM will run with them for years.

    On the other side of the “deal”, the Swamp level will be lowered a bit but no big named players will face exposure and justice. This will all just “go away”. No Institutions will be restructured. Business as usual with a few wrists slapped.

    The good news is PDJT will be able to continue his work on making and keeping America great.

    The bad news is, because there will be no deserved prosecution of the seditionists who undermined an election, orchestrated a soft coup on a sitting President, and profited mightedly for selling America out, it is guaranteed to happen again.

    This is all Sessions’ fault from beginning to end. He allowed the Obama DOJ to continue by his total incompetence. I say “total” because Sessions knows more about the law in his little finger than I do in my whole body, yet I, your humble servant, knew more about what was going on at the time than he did.

    And furthermore, he allowed himself to be completely snookered by Obama’s people at DOJ. He is blind to this. If I can see it clearly and could at the time, then he is totally incompetent as a leader, as I said.

    I agree with most of what is written in this article, except the above. I believe it was the original intent of appointing Mueller to create a deliberate distraction from all of the official intel community illegality.

    They thought Hillary was a shoe-in. Heck, everyone did. As a consequence, they were willing to do illegal things as quid pro quos for rewards once she inevitably acceded to the presidency: cover up for Hillary in her email probe; look the other way as the Clinton Foundation took foreign government money despite a written agreement not to do so; not investigate the Rosatom nuclear scandal; wiretap Trump via Carter Page and the two-hop rule; spy on (and illegally unmask) other conservative politicians; and probably dozens of other things we’ll never find out about.

    The day after the election, they all collectively said ‘oh I(@#I#, what do we do now?’ That was the genesis of the Russia collusion investigation; that was the genesis of Mueller; that is the moment this preconceived effort started. It is the original intent of the Mueller probe to provide camouflage for all of the other misdeeds. They’ve known it was a farce forever. It was never anything more.
