Mueller “Team” Does Not Want Special Counsel to Testify…

Can you imagine the questions:

Q: Mr. Mueller, did you go to Oval Office on May 16, 2017, because you wanted to apply for the job of FBI Director?
A: No.
Q: Mr. Mueller, was the mysterious cell phone you left behind in the oval office that day actually yours?
A: No.

And then, as Rod Rosenstein takes a hard and uncomfortable swallow, the Weissmann constructed house-of-cards starts to collapse….

(CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reluctance to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The special counsel’s team has conveyed the notion that Mueller does not want to appear political after staying behind the scenes for two years and not speaking as he conducted his investigation into President Donald Trump.

[…] Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, suggested at Tuesday’s hearing, a meeting where former White House counsel Don McGahn did not appear after being subpoenaed, that Democrats appear to have a lack of urgency in scheduling Mueller’s testimony.

[…] Justice officials are generally supportive of how the team is proceeding with negotiations. As Attorney General Bill Barr told The Wall Street Journal last week: “It’s Bob’s call whether he wants to testify.”

Special counsel spokesman Peter Carr and the Justice Department declined to comment on the current status of negotiations. (read more)

With a larger portion of the U.S. electorate now beginning to realize there never was a Trump Russia-Collusion-Conspiracy case to begin with; and with people now realizing almost all of Mueller investigative time was spent gathering evidence for an ‘obstruction case’; and with new revelations from Andrew McCabe, John Dowd and Mueller officials overlayed on the previous Strzok/Page texts; we can now clearly reconcile a previous issue:

..The May 16, 2017, Mueller meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office.

There has been a great deal of flawed interpretation of the May 16th meeting between President Trump, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller. Some people even claimed that meeting showed Mueller and Rosenstein working to the benefit of President Trump. However, if you overlay all the information there is considerable evidence that interview was for the purpose of Mueller determining if he could achieve an ‘obstruction’ goal. Here’s how…

FBI Director James Comey was fired on Tuesday May 9th, 2017.

According to his own admissions (NBC and CBS), Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe immediately began a criminal ‘obstruction’ investigation the next day, Wednesday May 10th; and he immediately enlisted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

These McCabe statements line up with with text message conversations between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok – (same dates 5/9 and 5/10):

(text message link)

It now appears that important redaction is “POTUS” or “TRUMP”. [Yes, this is evidence that some unknown DOJ officials redacted information from these texts that would have pointed directly to the intents of the DOJ and FBI. WARNING: Don’t get hung on it.]

The next day, Thursday May 11th, 2017, Andrew McCabe testifies to congress. With the Comey firing fresh in the headlines, Senator Marco Rubio asked McCabe: “has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation?”

McCabe responded: “So there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. Quite simply put, sir, you cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution.”

However, again referencing his own admissions, on Friday May 12th McCabe met with DAG Rod Rosenstein to discuss the issues, referencing the criminal ‘obstruction’ case McCabe had opened just two days before. According to McCabe:

… “[Rosenstein] asked for my thoughts about whether we needed a special counsel to oversee the Russia case. I said I thought it would help the investigation’s credibility. Later that day, I went to see Rosenstein again. This is the gist of what I said: I feel strongly that the investigation would be best served by having a special counsel.” (link)

Recap: Tuesday-Comey fired; Wednesday-McCabe starts criminal ‘obstruction’ case; Thursday-McCabe testifies to congress “no effort to impede”; Friday-McCabe and Rosenstein discuss Special Counsel.

After the weekend, Monday May 15th, McCabe states he and Rosenstein conferred again about the Special Counsel approach. McCabe: “I brought the matter up with him again after the weekend.”

Now, overlaying the hindsight we did not know in 2018, to include the John Dowd interview and McCabe admissions, a very clear picture emerges.

Amid the controversial Rosenstein “wear a wire” conversation, supported by the testimony of Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe and FBI counsel James Baker, it now appears like ly the team agreed on a covert operation where Rosenstein takes Mueller into the oval office while the FBI listened-in through the device (cell phone) they gave to Mueller.

[Side-Note: I suspect the reason why McCabe included the out-of-place reference to the forgotten Mueller phone in his 2018 book was to fire a warning shot at DAG Rosenstein; telling him: don’t try to distance yourself, or pin blame, there are records etc.]

On Tuesday May 16th, 2017, Rod Rosenstein takes Robert Mueller to the White House to talk with the target of the ‘obstruction’ criminal investigation, under the ruse of bringing Mueller in for a meeting about becoming FBI Director.

Who else did Rosenstein bring to Trump for an FBI Director interview? No-one.  This meeting with Robert Mueller appears as advanced reconnaissance.

The next day, Wednesday May 17th, 2017, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe go to brief the congressional “Gang-of-Eight”: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, ¹Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Richard Burr and Mark Warner.

… […] “On the afternoon of May 17, Rosenstein and I sat at the end of a long conference table in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol. We were there to brief the so-called Gang of Eight—the majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Rosenstein had, I knew, made a decision to appoint a special counsel in the Russia case.”

[…] “After reminding the committee of how the investigation began, I told them of additional steps we had taken. Then Rod took over and announced that he had appointed a special counsel to pursue the Russia investigation, and that the special counsel was Robert Mueller.” (link)

Immediately following this May 17, 2017, Go8 briefing, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein notified the public of the special counsel appointment.

According to President Trump’s Attorney John Dowd, the White House was stunned by the decision. [Link] Coincidentally, AG Jeff Sessions was in the oval office for unrelated business when White House counsel Don McGahn came in and informed the group. Jeff Sessions immediately offered his resignation, and Sessions’ chief-of-staff Jody Hunt went back to the Main Justice office to ask Rosenstein what the hell was going on.

Now, with hindsight and full understanding of exactly what the purposes and intents were for Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to bring Robert Mueller to the White House, revisit this video from June 2017:

.

The DOJ (Rosenstein) and FBI (McCabe) activity in coordination with the Robert Mueller team was always about the obstruction case from day one; heck, from even before Robert Mueller was appointed.

The totality of all primary effort has always been to protect the ruse of the Russia investigation by throwing out nonsense Russian indictments and keeping Manafort, Flynn and Papadopoulos (the original spygate targets) under control…. while the focus was on building the obstruction case against President Trump.

It could not be any more clear.

[Link]

The objective remains all about controlling the “narrative”.

This investigative ‘small group’ are the people inside Main Justice (DOJ) and FBI headquarters who redacted the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages; removed messages and communication antithetical to their goals; kept key documents and information away from congress; stalled any effort to expose the unlawful aspects of “SpyGate’ and the fraudulent foundation behind the Carter Page FISA application; and undermined any adverse discoveries in the leak investigations (James Wolfe) writ large.

There’s a reason why the discussions about thousands of Andrew McCabe text messages has been dropped.

There’s a reason why Chairman Lindsey Graham doesn’t want Robert Mueller to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

There’s a reason why Jerry Nadler and the House Judiciary committee would rather focus on accusations against AG Bill Barr as opposed to questioning Robert Mueller.

This corrupt DOJ and FBI investigative small group didn’t change when Mueller arrived, in May 2017, they just retooled the focus of their earlier effort based on new leadership and new objectives. Those who created the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy case of 2016, evolved into creating the Trump obstructing justice case of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Everything Mueller and Rosenstein were doing in late 2017 and throughout 2018 was intended to drag-out the Russia conspiracy narrative as long as possible, even though there was no actual Trump-Russia investigation taking place.

It was always the “obstruction” investigation that could lead to the desired result by Mueller’s team of taking down President Trump through evidence that would help Pelosi and Nadler achieve impeachment . The “obstruction case” was the entirety of the case they were trying to make from May 2017 through to March 2019; and continues today.

[¹] Now we know why House Speaker Paul Ryan moved to sideline Devin Nunes under the cloud of an ethics investigation.

      It is even less likely Weissman will pop up his head in forum where opponents can ask questions than it is for Mueller to do so. The questions Weissman would get asked are even more problematic for the Democrats- he was in the DoJ when this shitfest got started, and was surely one of the ring leaders.

      I think the Democrats wanted Barr to prevent Mueller from testifying, and I think it shocked them when Barr made it clear that it was up to Mueller and his team. Once Barr did that, you suddenly had the Democrats trying to make it look like they want Mueller to testify, but looking around to find someone to blame when he doesn’t. It looks like they now want to blame Mueller himself.

        Yes, ONE of the problems with Dem approach is they really DON’T understand the concept that;

        No battle plan survives first contact with the enemy!”
        Because you CAN NOT know, for sure what the enemies responce will be, so you need to be prepared to ADAPT.

        PLAN was; Barr refuses to release Mueller report, and they can allege coverup, i.e. “Obstruction”
        Barr refuses to allow Mueller to testify,
        And they allege “Obstruction”

        All the way back to “Mueller” team does such outrageous things as raiding his lawyer, stone arrest, etc. in order to “trigger” DJT into firing Mueller,….
        To justify OBSTRUCTION.

        AND,..WHY do they need OBSTRUCTION so BADLY? Cause its the ONLY way Mitch can instruct Repubs in Senate (and McCarthy in House) to vote to Impeach and convict.

        And they ain’t THERE! Oh, and by the way, “obstructing” a congressional investigation is NOT “Obstructing Justice”; since Legislative branch can not prosecute, convict or exact punishment, there is no “Justice” to obstruct.

        We ARE seeing absolute panic and desperation on the part of the Uniparty. It is palpable and obvious.

        Also, interesting to note PDJT has PROBABLY NOT seen the documents he is about to order redacted.

        In November 2002, the FBI implemented a special FISA Unit with a unit chief and six staffers and installed an automated tracking system that connects field offices, headquarters, the National Security Law Branch and the Office of Intelligence, allowing participants to track the process during each stage.

        Starting March 1, 2003, the FBI required field offices to confirm they’ve verified the accuracy of facts presented to the court through the case agent, the field office’s Chief Division Counsel and the Special Agent in Charge.

        All of this information was provided to Congress in 2003. The FBI director at the time also ordered that any issue as to whether a FISA application was factually sufficient was to be brought to his attention. Personally.

        Who was the director of the FBI when all of this careful work was done?

        Robert Mueller.

        Yes, I’ve long thought that a twin purpose of dragging out the Mueller investigation was to remove evidence of the criminal conspiracy that was run out of the FBI/DOJ/CIA. Not only was it necessary to keep up the appearance of Trump bad, FBI/DOJ/CIA good for the purpose of the resistance movement (Dems in Congress, legacy media, and sheeple who could be marshaled for shows on the nightly news), but at some point in time there would be an investigation of the investigators. In order to keep independents from turning in lockstep against those who were trying to effect a coup of the duly elected President, it is necessary to prevent discovery of the lengths that these scum went to.

        Scrubbing evidence is also very important for protecting the legacy of the Community Organizer in Chief. How would it look in the lens of history to find out that the first black president ran the most corrupt administration in the history of this country?

    Hillary smiles, sips on her wine, reads her bank balance and then laughs so heard so splits her pants suit! Look at all the people that tried so hard to work for her benefit and theirs. Meanwhile Obama sits down with Valerie, both laughing at how easy it is to establish foundations to gather monies and to hide them, plotting their game plan for Michelle in 2020.

    No heads have rolled, all the main players have their escape routes planned, marked and provisioned for survival.

    Will heads roll? Can you show me when and where they did? Nancy just killed her shot at getting an infrastructure bill passed prior to 2020 to help the Dems, her base wants blood and only impeachment will do, as she slowly works her way to that position. Chuck lags behind her knowing his words and snide remarks are all that is left of his power.

    But no heads have rolled, millions of our dollars have been spent and those major players still have their freedoms and funds for those lovely country club nights and parties.

    We, the little people are still the suckers!

        If you accept the Sundance premise, that the whole purpose was to create a case for Obstruction, as a predicate for impeachment (or forced resignation to avoid impeachment), ask yourself;

        WHO would NEED such a predicate?

        NOT the Democrats, who were willing to impeach DJT for no reason, BEFORE the inaugeration!

        NO, the WHOLE REASON for the quest for Obstruction, was to give Republicons, in the House and Senate ‘political cover’ to vote for Impeachment (in the House) and Conviction in the Senate.

        Pelosi’s dilemma is, THEY AIN’T THERE!
        McConnell would LOVE to order his members to vote for impeachment, but HE CAN’T. They have not ‘made their case’ in the ‘court of public opinion’, and has been said MANY times, Impeachment is a POLITICAL process, not a legal one.

        For Repubs to vote to impeach, without evidence, would EXPOSE them as being what they are, and they are trying hard NOT to be exposed.

        The Uniparty has fallen into a trap of their own making.

If he does, it would appear the evidence is so overwhelming that it cannot result in anything but full exposure of a real-life coup attempt. But there are many shades of gray. He could half-ass it.

            With that said this doesn’t explain the revised Mueller scope memo, which doesn’t seem to work in favor of an innocuous explanation for Rosenstein’s involvement. But there is a strong odor in my mind of manipulation of Rosenstein.

        You’re missing my point. We all know this was garbage. But most of our knowledge didn’t come until well after Mueller was appointed. We didn’t learn about the Carter Page FISA and George Papadopoulos’ set-up until after Devin Nunes was cleared of the ethics violation and his report came out.

        The timeline of events and of our knowledge of things is critical. The fact is that when the Special Counsel was appointed all we knew of at the time was the media frenzy and Trump proclaiming his innocence. That’s it. Rosenstein had access to fraudulent evidence but he very likely didn’t know of its forgery at that point.

  23. I think that the small group, if they had any doubt before were absolutely convinced once they received Kavalec’s email, that the Steele story was crap and that there was a very real risk hat it would blow up in their face if they weren’t able to “lock in POTUS in a chargeable way on.” At that point the Russia Story was kept on life support long enough to transition to that point (realizing that there was never any collusion).

    I also believe that knowledge (that Steele was FOS) was why the FBI fired him on Nov 1, 2016, NOT the leaking to media in and of itself, alone. (I haven’t been able to find it, but I seem to remember a video clip of Comey, maybe testifying to Congress, being asked if the FBI had paid Steele, and Comey badly mangled the answer—badly enough that he came off a though he was hiding something—saying something to the effect that he didn’t know, would look into it, and would surely put a stop to it.

    If the above is true, does it not also defeat the DOJ/FBI argument that they were seriously concerned about Trump-Russia espionage, and therefore had no choice but to investigate it? Does it not now become certain (with the conversion of collusion—full stop—to obstruction) that their objection was not to protect the Country, but rather to bring down the President?

    – The Director of the Secret service (Obama’s Main agent) retired and was replaced by a non secret service director—very unusual

    I will say this, there was way too much chatter for an incoming Don Jr. indictment for months, Rosenstein had to have prevented that indictment! Rod was definitely turned by Trump at some point. Rodentstein can best be explained as a fence strateler. Rod played parts for the coup team AND the anti-coup team! It’s mind bending.

    I would explain Rod like this, he is a front runner, and a chameleon, and a “survivor” as Comey said, all at the same time. Rod Rosenstein is what the end result of 30 + years in D.C. look like, and it ain’t pretty.

      “Bongino said that Mifsud could actually have worked (being paid) by Steele’s company.”

      I believe Dan made that connection (Mifsud with Steele and Fusion GPS) because Congressman Nunes dropped a big fat hint to that effect at the end of a very recent interview… Wouldn’t that be big?

        Yes, imagine if Mifsud was actually working for or with Steele and Fusion GPS. Can opposition research entrap people?

        This scenario makes sense when you see pictures of him and Alexander Downer together. And it all happened in London.

        What a mess! These people are worse than Chinese spies.

    I don’t see Mueller testifying or not testifying as important. We have his results: no collusion, no obstruction. No matter how biased/corrupted the internals of his SC investigation may have been, it doesn’t matter now looking forward. Mueller is ‘Schnee von Gestern’, yesterdays now dirty snow.

    What DOES matter is that whoever at the CIA and whoever else from the IC was involved in faking a Russia collusion predicate for CrossFire Hurricane, and whoever at FBI abused FISA for the resulting ‘insurance policy’ all be brought to (hopefully severe) justice. I think Barr has tasked Horowitz and Durham to make it so, so that this never happens again.

    At this point, except to some TDS Congresspeople, anything Mueller is a side show to a wild 3 ring circus—Spygate, the I word (to paraphrase PDJT today), southern border mess.

      It is important to hear it from the horse’s mouth. I don’t think it is going to change the course of Barr’s quest, or PDJT’s re-election, but I want the whole world to watch him squirm (even if not visible) and realize what us & our president has gone through. We (the faithful that stood) need to regain our credibility /reputation /honor.

        It is important because the Republicans could ask him the questions that kick off this very post by Sundance… and many more questions just like it. But are they smart enough to know what questions to ask? And willing to ask them if they are?

        If Mueller was ever going to testify (a big ‘if’), I’m guessing there would be a CTH post with “suggestions” for the top 25 most damaging questions to ask… You know… As a public service.

        Dems pulling the old eye wink. We are negotiating with Mueller. Their not lying they are negotiating to not have Mueller appear. I bet an agreement for written questions but only demcrates allowed to ask and review the questions. They will use trump only providing written answers to mueller as bases they did this with mueller.

    What actually transpired is very clear to all who care to be honest and objective. A group of traitors tried to defeat PDJT and elect Hillary. When that failed, they tried to keep PDJT from being inaugurated. When that failed, they tried to smear him so badly that he would resign. When that failed, they used the Mueller probe to hamstring PDJT and tip the scales in the 2018 House election to guarantee perpetual harassment. They are batting close to zero. The only thing left is the House embarrassing themselves trying to keep the “obstruction” charge alive.

    There is enough evidence to indict and jail dozens of “big players”.

    Sounds good for the good guys. Right?

    Not so fast.

    The key is 2020. And the key to success for the Dems is election fraud. They are masters at it. They can’t win an honest national election.

    Because it’s not a national vote issue. It’s carefully targeted fraud designed to tip key states to insure an electoral victory. And I have no reason to believe Republicans are up to the task of preventing this.

    While I dream of key swampers being indicted and going to jail, I would trade that for an honest 2020 election. I hope CTH stays on this issue and points out the fraud that has occurred and the techniques the fraudsters employ.

    And I hope PDJT has a state specific defense plan under development to keep the swampers from stealing the election, like they stole the House in 2018.

    If we lose in 2020, most of the progress PDJT has made will be quickly reversed.

      harleyd,
      As you say, “Not so fast”!
      In my opinion, you are RIGHT, but you are WRONG.
      “I have no reason to believe the Republicans are up to the task of preventing this (election fraud).

      The Republicans are FULLY engaged in perpetrating election fraud, and so habe NO interest in preventing it.

      Evidence is there, for those willing to see.
      For 30 something years, there was a consent degree which prevented the Republican party from engaging in many ‘standard’ practices to insure ballot integrity, such as challenging voters, etc.

      BUT, that decree finally expired, when the Judge who had issued it retired. And yet, RNC did NOTHING in 2018, which they could have done since the decree wasn’t in effect for 2018 midterms.

      In Az. Senate race the primary was between Dr. Kelly Ward, who was MAGA before the escalator ride, and McSally, who is RINO.

      SO, the local Republican party put up Sheriff Arpio, to run in the primary.
      I didn’t see him campaign AT ALL, but ‘name recognition’ was enough to ‘split’ the MAGA vote, so McSally was the,Republican candidate in the general.
      Both Kelly Ward and Arpio voters stayed home, hence Kirsten Synema, an avowed Socialist, won.
      There MAY have been some BALLOT fraud, to push her over the top, but the main ELECTION fraud is NOT ballot fraud.

      It is manipulation of the primary process; Uniparty= ONE party, masquerading as TWO.

      Giving voters the choice of the lesser of two weavils, and whether the winner has a (D) or an (R) after their name, they really are BOTH (U).

      SEE how it works?

    And this means Comey, Rosenstein, Mcabe, were in on a plot together which would see their friend Comey fired. Comey, was fired because of Rosenstein’s letter, written with Comey’s consent. The letter was written to set Trump up. They knew he would fire Comey, and open the doors to a Special Council, and possible obstruction by goading him daily in the national press, and media.

    (CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed their anal glands in fear of his testifying publicly in front of the Neidermeyernadler Star Chamber, according to sources who fabricated the investigation.
    The special counsel’s team is convinced that Mueller does not want to appear ignorant after sleeping behind the scenes for two years and not engaged while his lead dog Weismann concocted the investigation into President Donald Trump. Comrade Schiff expressed disappointment and still seeks photos of “naked Trump” for his personal collection.

      This point in the above article – is very interesting…
      (as witnesses they are using their public platforms to ‘corroborate their stories’.) Hmmm fascinating when we consider all things….

      “In just the past week, we’ve seen a rush to comment by the former directors of national intelligence and the CIA. The FBI’s former general counsel has chimed in publicly and, of course, fired FBI Director Comey has been on a media offensive, practicing character assassination as a strategy with Barr among those in his crosshairs.

      Each appears to be anxious about his own role in handling the controversial Steele dossier from the Trump-Russia investigation, and so there is some elbowing under the basket to get optimum positioning. And who can blame them? The attorney general has stated that he is going to focus particularly on the dossier’s exploitation, and specifically on the actions of the leadership of those agencies.

      Interestingly, this establishes these leaders as principal witnesses in Durham’s inquiry. In essence they are using their easy access to public media platforms to coordinate and communicate their stories among themselves.

      Ordinarily, this type of witness activity is troubling, if not borderline obstructive when done privately. In this case, Durham may be licking his chops as a prosecutor since a certain element of finger-pointing among the principals has emerged.”

    There is no way Rosenstein and McCabe would have done this …. basically launch an all out war against their boss, the President …. if the Republican members of the Gof8 had objected. Clearly they did not object, or perhaps even encouraged Rosenstein in his action. They must have promised to prevent Trump from firing the lot of them for insubordination.

      Ding, ding, ding.
      And you know who is ESPECIALLY vulnerable?
      SPEAKER RYAN. ….Why? Because he is a Constitutional officer, meaning he is third in line of succesion. Hence TREASON.
      And yes, while technically I.C. just informs gang of 8, in practice there is NO WAY they could proceed, WITHOUT getting a clear signal from Ryan and McConnell to proceed.

      IMHO, it was around that time that McConnell and Ryan said “get PDJT to obstruct! We can have our Republican caucuses vote for impeachment, if we can make,a case for OBSTRUCTION.

      And FIRING was actually the GOAL. Because FIRING these miscreants could then be painted as “Obstruction”.

      Firing is not the dreaded thing in D.C. that it is in private sector, outside D.C.
      Look how many jumped at the chance.
      Sally Yates, Comey, being fired by “Trump” is seen as a badge of honor, and with D.C. connections a job in a ‘think tank’, or ‘lobbying firm’ or teaching at a University is virtually guaranteed.

      Its a BIG club, and WE, the PEOPLE, Ain’t in it!
