Robert Mueller's silence has become
a problem

Original Article

Posted By: zephyrgirl, 5/28/2019 10:09:34 AM

Turns out, Robert Mueller is camera-shy. Since being named special counsel in the Russia investigation two years ago, Mueller has out-Garboed Garbo in his ability to maintain a public silence. Mostly, this has been a good thing — it is easier to take a prosecutor seriously when he or she avoids grandstanding on cable news and instead sticks to the work of taking down the bad guys. Mueller's ability to keep his lips zipped was especially striking in contrast with President Trump, whose constant commentary on the investigation sometimes provided his critics with fresh ammunition.

Comments:

Mueller doesn't want to be publicly questioned by Republicans about when he knew there was no collusion, and why his staff was all rabid partisan democrats.

Mueller was watching when the Worm Turned. He knows who the FBI director was when AG Holder kicked the whole political surveillance thing off.

Mueller was FBI director until 2013. The massive, illegal misuse of the NSA database for political spying began under his term as FBI director. Now that this is starting to be known, he is in great legal jeopardy himself and is laying low. I hope he gets nailed in the upcoming exposure of this huge, criminal cabal in FBI, DoJ, CIA and Dept of State.

I would be silent too if I spent two years and $34 million on a crime that I knew did not exist and knew of another crime that I deliberately ignored. Like a mouse in daylight. Every top official of the FBI had to know what was going on and eventually all will be fingered. The resulting finger pointing will be very informative and we will see Comey cry before it's all over.

Mueller isn't stupid. He has been given a role to play in a coup, and he knows its not working. He's not talking because he knows whatever he says can be used against him. He is covering his own rear end.

Herr Mueller and his Swamp Gestapo did their dirty work in private. The last thing they want is sunshine shown upon them. And guess what, those Democrat star chamber committees still have Republican members and they will be loaded for bear if and when Herr Mueller descends off his cloud and deigns to appear, probably in white, flowing robes, before Congress.

"An appearance before Congress would become a political spectacle." No, it would be a circus. It already is. Muller said there was no collusion with Russian by ANY American. How difficult is that to parse? As to obstruction, Trump gave Mueller's team unrestricted access to the people in the WH that they wanted to speak with and gave the orders to cooperate fully. There was NOTHING Mueller wanted from Trump's people that he didn't get except for speaking to Trump himself. By the time Mueller wanted to do that, it was CLEAR no crime had been committed so why should Trump speak with Mueller? The whole possibility of obstruction seems to come from Trump's attitude that the investigation was a witch hunt and Trump's frustration with it. As it turns out, it WAS a witch hunt! Mueller and his staff were EXTREME partisans and were involved in illegal spying that lead up to the Russian collusion coup attempt. As noted, Mueller was head of the FBI when the spying started in 2012. He was horribly compromised and should have recused himself from the prosecutor job. Barr and Rosenstein reviewed and summarized Mueller's obstruction notes and found NO obstruction. The unredacted report does NOT dispute that. Mueller told Barr that his summary was NOT inaccurate, in essence, CORRECT. Mueller may have wanted his report to create a bit of a stench for Trump, a foul, spoiled rotten nothingburger but Barr correctly cut him off. THAT is what the dems want; a vicious, nasty public spectacle that is ultimately empty of purpose except for the theatrical value. My guess is that Mueller knows exactly how much trouble he is about to be in and Barr has made it clear that what goes around comes around. Make pissy trouble for Trump over nothing and Mueller may find himself paying an enormous price when his own misdeeds are brought to light. Within a couple months, I suspect Mueller will be wishing that everyone would just forget all about him.

It has been made pretty clear that Andrew Weissman headed up the Special Counsel’s team, and that he and/or the team chose Mueller to be its “leader”. Sidney Powell has already publicly stated that, her having known Andrew Weissman and his style for years, the “Mueller Report” was written by Weissman. Perhaps this is the reason Mueller is afraid to be interviewed publicly the the committee(s). If the work product was Weissman’s, he would not be able to adequately respond to questions about it.

This article is a load! Let Mueller appear in an open hearing so he can be grilled by Republicans. If he won't do that, then the creep should fade away and not be heard from again. Maybe he will be indicted by Barr. Wouldn't that be justice?

Thanks to the visibility of and interest around AG Barr, mueller has been publicly exposed as the corrupt stooge he has been for many years. I have read the only reason he is not in jail for the whitey bulger fiasco is another crooked AG pulled strings to get him a pass by limiting the scope of the investigation. Is this AG Barr's second chance? I am still waiting for all those white hatted fbi rank and file types hannity keeps imagining to come out of the woodwork.

Today's CTH shows that this actually started in 2010, so Mueller was neck deep in this mess, and he needs to be fitted for an orange jumpsuit.

It was a significant day for criminal justice reform in Colorado as Governor Jared Polis signed several new bills into law Tuesday. That legislation will help convicts apply for jobs and college, vote, and even earn a scholarship. Second Chance Center in Aurora hosted the signing event. “We’re a re-entry hub. We’re here to support men and women going home after incarceration,” said Second Chance Founder and Executive Director, Hassan Latif. “We try to ease the transition challenges, and try to work on the kinds of things we think feed into the behavior patterns that cause people to run into problems with judicial systems.”

Robert Mueller’s 11 AM statement to the media today stuck to what was in his report (which he said “speaks for itself”), but selectively highlighted and sequenced points intended to damage President Trump, providing obvious bait for impeachment proceedings. . Here is one example: …if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime. It is not the job of prosecutors to state that a suspect “clearly did not commit a crime,”

It is tempting for normal people to ignore our president when he starts ranting about treason and corruption at the FBI. I understand the temptation.

In normal times, that’s healthy. But not now, when the president is a liar who doesn’t care what damage he does to vital institutions. We must call out his lies that the FBI was corrupt and committed treason, that we spied on the Trump campaign and tried to defeat Donald Trump.

The New York Times has made waves with a new report on sightings by U.S. Navy aviators of unidentified flying objects between 2014 and 2015. But the UFO issue, which follows a similar 2017 story, is far more interesting than the reporters let on. The U.S. government does not know what these UFOs actually are. The report focuses on witnesses of so-called "Tic Tacs," but other shapes and sizes of UFOs have also been credibly recorded by the U.S., British, Chinese, Russian, and other governments for the past 65 years. But what are these strange things? Most informed individuals I have talked to believe that the Tic Tac-like UFOs are unmanned vehicles
