One Mueller-Investigation Coincidence Too Many
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/12/2017 5:02:04 AM

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

#1, thanks for the tip. Good read, as is the VDH column. A wordsmith of the highest degree, VDH is one who has been doing patriotic heavy lifting for years.

All I had to do was google it and the twitter feed opened right up. Who knew?

Always a master of understatement and academic tolerance, VDH, once again drives home his ideas with surgical precision and zero emotion.

I´m glad his long didactic career did not move him to the dark side. He almost captures the flavor of Twain or Will Rogers in his extra-soft method of doing the assassin´s nasty work.

Great fun to read and a great lesson in maintenance of Credibility.

Starr´s inquiry was not expanded by Starr - it was expanded by Janet ´Butch´ Reno. She gave him the Monica Lewinsky investigation as an add on. Herr Mueller and his Gestapo crew are self expanding.

The term "public service" or "public servant" are like finger nails on the chalk board to me. These people are paid better than those in the private sector and in some cases become quite rich and powerful and serve only themselves and coworkers. I suggest the terms be discarded as being inaccurate.

What has been exposed here is a full blown political coup in the making. There it is folks, all spelled out for ya. Once a coup is exposed, what then? The only difference between these guys and a military coup is these guys don´t wear uniforms and they don´t have uniformed armed vicious thug platoons doing their dirty deeds against the elected "El Presidente". They use Armani suited lawyers and lying opposition politicians and a lock step sycophantic media to do their dirty work.

Just another run of the mill piece of work from VDH which of course means brilliant and a must read.

The article closes with its most powerful line regarding Mueller’s legacy:

“Indeed, his legacy may not be that he welcomed in known pro-Clinton, anti-Trump attorneys to investigate the Trump 2016 campaign where there was little likelihood of criminality, but that he ignored the most egregious case of government wrongdoing in the last half-century.”

I love this bit:

Former FBI director James Comey (now reduced to ankle-biting the president on Twitter with Wikipedia-like quotes) stated under oath that he had deliberately leaked his own confidential notes about conversations with President Trump, hoping to prompt appointment of a special investigator to investigate a president — whom he said, also under oath, that he was not investigating.

Agree.. great article! It´s time. Sessions can demand all documents requested by the Congress be turned over. If he can´t do, then Trump needs to do it.

He isn´t asking for them to hide anything, so how can the Dems squeal about it?

One thing the FBI needs to remember is that Congress is a co -equal branch of government They are oversight of the FBI.. they decide what to pay for and who ask for accountability. Show them the documents!! Today! They have been stonewalling for months all the while commanding a false narrative! And they will continue into 2018 and make it a partisan election issue when it is not. There were crimes committed in 2016!

BTW.. notice how nothing is ever found anymore that reflects poorly on Trump? Why they are back to the women issue again.

Almost daily now, the corrupt Democrat Coupsters of this ludicrous "investigation" take massive dumps in their own petards - for everyone to see and, we can safely assume, just as PDT has hoped to play it. Getting the facts past the corrupt Democrat Coupsters of the Enemedia is not as impossible as it was before, thanks to presidential tweets and certain New Media soldiers.

But if their stealth coup is collapsing, question is whether The Resistance will feel it has to resort to brute force... and whether the DOJ will (as it is its solemn duty to do) prosecute these oh so gentlemanly criminals...?

With all the conflicts of interest, how cold anyone with even half a brain think this is a fair and even-handed investigation?

Mueller is as dirty as the day is long. Dirty! Dirty! Dirty! Someone with his experience should know better than to assemble an investigative team with so many conflicts of interest -- unless he really doesn´t care about the truth and is politically motivated.

They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature.

No VDH, constitutionally mandated institutions DO WORK. It´s the unconstitutional ones like Mueller´s investigations mandated by feckless, spineless cowards in Congress (one who is now, wait for it, the freaking attorney general) that don´t.

Indeed, the only remaining trajectory by which Mueller and his investigators can escape with their reputations intact is to dismiss those staff attorneys who have exhibited clear anti-Trump political sympathies, reboot the investigation, and then focus on what now seems the most likely criminal conduct: Russian and Clinton-campaign collusion in the creation of the anti-Trump Fusion GPS dossier and later possible U.S. government participation in the dissemination of it.

Right, and that will happen just after the space shuttle lands safely in my driveway AND I win Powerball five times in a row without ever buying a ticket.

Here´s the question I have, a mere nave from fly-over Bible clutching, gun toting country; what in the living Billy s***ing hell will it take for a LEADER to stop the current coup, Mueller being one element, that is openly, flagrantly with middle finger flipped to impeach Trump? And BTW VDH, I love you San Joaquin Valley brother but the goal of the Mueller investigation is to get Trump impeached, period, so that the deep state can regain power, period.

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair.

Monday morning, after bragging about what fighters they were in forcing the federal government into shutdown mode over their demands for amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to America as children, Senate Democrats meekly gave in and voted for a short-term federal budget deal. And the left wing of the Democrat Party is not happy about it. The predicate of the “compromise” Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced was that Schumer would be guaranteed a vote on a “clean” bill giving congressional authorization to the Obama administration’s DACA, the program protecting the children of illegal immigrants from deportation, by Feb. 8 in return for

What a coincidence. Months after Bob Costas publicly said football “destroys people’s brains,” NBC mysteriously left the legendary broadcaster off of its Super Bowl broadcast team. Costas will be replaced by Dan Patrick, who will serve as the host of NBC’s Super Bowl LII pregame show alongside co-host Liam McHugh. The duo will be joined by “Football Night in America” analysts Tony Dungy, Rodney Harrison, Mike Florio and Chris Simms, the network announced in a press release Monday.

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum.

Donald Trump’s relationship with John Kelly, his chief of staff, fraught from the beginning, may finally have gone past the point of no return. Two prominent Republicans in frequent contact with the White House told me that Trump has discussed choosing Kelly’s successor in recent days, asking a close friend what he thought about David Urban, a veteran Washington lobbyist and political operative who helped engineer Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania. Ivanka is also playing a central role in the search, quietly field-testing ideas with people. “Ivanka is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly,”

Virtually all of the credibility of the so-called Steele dossier — and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and investigations it spawned — hinges on Christopher Steele’s vaunted reputation as a former British intelligence agent who spied on Moscow and still maintains a network of sources inside the Kremlin. But now we are finding out from newly released transcripts that he never even set foot inside Russia to compile his dossier, and that he relied instead on an ex-journalist-turned-p.r. consultant to do much of his investigating there. In fact, this non-intelligence figure may be his main “Russian source” of information.

Schumer´s shutdown reveals: Democrats

Donald Trump was inaugurated one year ago after promising to make America great again. Throughout the campaign everyone knew what he believed, though it was not clear what his opponents stood for. The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty. When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process. Now they’ve come off the sidelines to actively sabotage the government established to serve the American people. Their stated reason for doing so is even more astounding than the act itself.

Choose any measurement, and the result is the same: Democrats are headed for a major victory in the November midterms. The generic ballot tells us voters prefer Democrats to Republicans by a 10-point average. The president’s approval ratings, a historically useful guide to his party’s midterm hopes? The lowest at this point of any in recorded history. Recent special elections? Democrats took a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama for the first time in 30 years and a Wisconsin state Senate seat that had stayed Republican for 17 years. The average swing to Democrats in the four special elections so far:

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey
