Revealed: Robert Mueller’s FBI
Repeatedly Abused Prosecutorial Discretion

The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/19/2018 11:22:13 AM

Journalist Mike Allen of Axios recently said that one word described Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and that word was “unafraid.” The context for his remarks on Fox News’ “Special Report” was that Mueller had just spun off to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York a bit of his limitless investigation into President Donald J. Trump. Allen’s comment was like so many others from media and pundit types since the special counsel was launched. If there’s one word to describe the media’s relationship to Mueller, it’s “unquestioning.” Pundits and politicians have said, repeatedly, that he is

This is an excellent article! I just love Mollie Hemingway. She is a wonderful, honest reporter, a rare breed in this day and age. She also has such a calming presence. I only watch Bret Baier when she is on because the others on the panel most of the time are now flaming leftists, like Mike Allen named in the article. She outlines the very questionable behavior of Mueller over the years that many have completely ignored.

Contd. FTA: "As aggressive as Mueller can be about pursuing the wrong man, he showed surprising leniency and laxity when it came to the case of Samuel “Sandy” Berger, a Clinton White House national security adviser. In the run-up to testifying before the 9/11 Commission that sought to examine the failures that led to those terrorist attacks, Berger visited the National Archives to review classified documents with his notes on them."

I had no memory of Mueller being the one who was so easy on that filthy Berger.  The corruption and failings of Mueller are many. It´s sickening that he is touted as being so upstanding, honorable, etc. when he is anything but that. Trey Gowdy should read this article and become more enlightened and quit defending the corrupt Mueller.  I sure wish there were more reporters like Mollie. Imagine how different things would be.

Thank you Mollie for mentioning that they withheld evidence in the Bundy trial as well. It seems many people have forgotten or never knew that these ranchers were falsely imprisoned for two years and that the FBI knew they shouldn´t have been.

This is essential background information we should all know. I suppose that makes it a must read in my view.

I couldn´t help but wonder, as I read example after example, why then did we hear so many stirring endorsements of this man of integrity?

It turns out that this jackazz has his handprints all over cases that have infuriated me for years, in particular the ho hum nothing to see hear treatment of Sandy the Stuffed Shorts Berger. Secondly the completely inexcusable pursuit of Scooter Libby when we without question knew that he was being investigated for something he did not do in the hopes of finding an excuse to nail him for something. Go do your own man on the street experiment and after wading through the throngs of people who never heard of him the rest will recall he outed Valarie Plame which of course is completely false.
Does that scenario seem vaguely familiar?

Mollie Hemingway is an excellent (very rare!) journalist who does not indulge in half measures. Thus her articles tend to be longer than those from some popular sites that merely skim the surface.

For a good informational (historical) dive into Mueller’s checkered past, you couldn’t do better than this. Highly recommend this read...

Great article...but it fails to mention Mooler was the FBI director responsible for minimizing and outlawing any truthful information about Moozlimbs/Islam in FBI and law enforcement training. In fact, some good people were fired due to his restrictions. Heis largely responsible for & complicit in the spread of the Mooslimb non-Sisterhood throughout the U.S. Government.

Often, when Mueller is mentioned by the msm, it is with a descriptor indicating his pure as the driven snow excellent reputation, honesty, etc. The way the deep state/globalists/uniparty whatever you wish to call them, works, is to put a lie out there, the press accepts it without question, and then the press repeats it over and over until it becomes embedded in the national memory, e.g Scooter Libby outed Valerie Plame, Valerie Plame was a covert CIA agent (in fact when outed by Armitage, Plame had been working for years at a desk job at Langley. She probably had a govt. sticker/pass on her car.) But by repeating the lie over and over, the Left got America to accept it.

I live near Fort Dietrick, where the anthrax case became focused, and I followed it pretty closely. Steven Hatfill´s case was the subject of a lot of media, not just local. It seemed clear that he was not involved pretty early on, but the FBI hounded him for years and I´m glad he got some money out of his tribulations. The other man, Bruce Ivins, who by all accounts was somewhat unstable, committed suicide after being hounded like Hatfill. I never concluded whether he was guilty or not from media accounts, but from what Mollie and others say now, scientists disagreed that the strain of anthrax Ivins worked with was the same one used in the attacks on legislators in Washington. I didn´t connect Mueller with that horribly handled case until recently, but I consider that case alone to have merited his firing.

At the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the carry-on bag bulged with $1 million in cash from a welfare rip-off scheme. The loot was headed for Somalia, some of it to regions controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group, and this shipment was part of $100 million sent over the past year alone. This scheme was not uncovered by the New York Times, CNN, “Frontline” or any “investigative” journalist in the old-line establishment media.

WASHINGTON — Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark. Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an

Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox that Mueller´s investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president´s team. That has forced Trump´s legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel -- a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday.

Just how lazy is the Senate? If you need just one metric to measure this, consider the following: The Senate has had just one amendment vote this entire year. Many outside observers chalk the Senate’s glacial pace and lack of debate up to polarization and gridlock. But a closer observation reveals that gridlock has little to do with it. Rather, laziness does. I’ve spent the better part of the last year writing about ways in which the Republican Senate wastes time: working 2.5 days a week, engaging in endless quorum calls, and allowing the Democrats to run roughshod over the

Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

More than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago, according to data released by the California Department of Public Health. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30, the report said. Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, while men account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases.

SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a controversial but compromise head tax on large businesses to pay for programs for the homeless. The tax would raise about $48 million a year – less than the original proposal of $75 million but more than the $40 million that Mayor Jenny Durkan had proposed. Durkan says she will sign the bill. Amazon, downtown´s economic giant, immediately blasted the proposal and what it said was a hostile approach to larger businesses that "forces us to question our growth here."
