“A great choice for special counsel.”- Senator John McCain.
“Exactly the right kind of individual to serve as a special counsel in the Russia investigation.”- Senator Chuck Schumer.
“Somebody we all trust.”- Republican Rep. Darrell Issa.
“A good first step.”- Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
“I welcome his role at Department of Justice.”- Rep. Paul Ryan.
“Mueller is a great selection. Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted.”- Rep. Jason Chaffetz.
These are some of the effusive praises heaped at the feet of former FBI Director turned liberal Grand Inquisitor Robert Mueller.
Thanks to the devious duplicity of another FBI Director and friend of Mueller, James Comey, the highly lauded special counsel has been esconched by both parties in the reprised role of Watergate SC John A Doar.
Doug Ross @ Journal, however, reminds us that Mueller is far, far, far from an unbiased and competent pick to investigate the fake Russian scandal and all its tenuous links.
What causes Ross to have misgivings? Do you remember the 2001 anthrax attack on Capitol Hill? If not, Ross does.
“’In 2004,’ retired Foreign Service officer and intelligence analyst Kenneth J. Dillon tells Accuracy in Media (AIM), ‘the FBI learned that the anthrax mailer was an al-Qaeda operative. Under White House pressure, Mueller suppressed this finding and continued to hunt for a domestic suspect. When scientist Bruce Ivins committed suicide in 2008, Mueller blamed him for the mailings, then lied to a Senate committee about it.’”
Ivins was found innocent post-mortem, so Mueller took down another innocent scientist by the name of Dr. Steven Hatfill, forcing him out of two prestigious jobs and ruining his career in the process.
“At one point, the FBI claimed to have fished a piece of Hatfill’s lab equipment, supposedly an anthrax weapons device, out of a pond. The FBI spent $250,000 to drain the pond but found no evidence of anthrax in it. The device was a minnow bucket.”
The entire Russian investigation is an empty minnow bucket, but that just seems to make Mueller even more dangerous.
