Mueller Democrat Conspiracy
Mueller is a long-term personal friend of Comey. If Mueller is such a straight arrow (as say the press and the people behind the appointment, including AG Sessions), why is he hanging with a crook? The Hillary indictment-exoneration is only one item in the crook Comey’s history. Trump is screwed …….count on it…..as the prosecutor goes fishing. Remember, Ken Star’s special prosecutor mission was to investigate the Clinton’s old Whitewater land dealings years before in AR……. and the case ended up about intern blow jobs in the Oval Office and the semen-stained blue dress and perjury.
Once again, James Comey and Robert Mueller — two respected FBI veterans — have found themselves sharing the same high-profile headlines.
The two men’s working relationship can be traced back to at least December of 2003, when Comey joined Mueller in Washington after he became John Ashcroft’s deputy attorney general, according to a 2013 Washingtonian article about the two men’s long0standing relationship.
“He and Mueller spent many hours together, developing a close partnership — and watching together the disarray in the government over how to respond to the unfolding war on terror,” Washingtonian notes. “They shared a horror at the poor quality information infiltrating the upper reaches of government.”
The article goes on to point to personal similarities as well as professional. Both men were educated at Virginia universities — Mueller at the University of Virginia, Comey at William & Mary.
“Just years apart in the 1990s, they both gave up their top-tier private law firm jobs to return to the trenches of prosecuting criminals — Mueller as a junior prosecutor in Washington, DC, and Comey in Richmond, Virginia,” Washingtonian reports. “Both men were rising stars mentored and guided by Eric Holder in the 1990s during Holder’s time in the Justice Department under the Clinton administration.”
Their relationship was made stronger during an incident in 2004. At the time, the Los Angeles Times reported, Comey, Mueller and a number of other law enforcement officials were on the verge of resigning in opposition to a Bush administration plan to reauthorize a domestic surveillance program that was launched after the terror attacks of 9/11. President Bush eventually agreed to modify the secret program after both men jointly intervened — an experience that is suspected to have drawn them even closer.
This week — amid allegations that President Trump pressured Comey to drop a probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn — the ousted FBI director’s associates have praised his truthfulness and credibility.
It’s a quality that many Republicans and Democrats believe Comey shares with Mueller, his predecessor.
“Regardless of your chosen career, you are only as good as your word,” Mueller told William & Mary’s graduating class in 2013. “You can be smart, aggressive, articulate, and indeed persuasive. But if you are not honest, your reputation will suffer. And once lost, a good reputation can never, ever be regained.”
Sen. John McCain, a Republican from Arizona, called Robert Mueller “a great choice for special counsel.” Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a Democrat from New York, called him “exactly the right kind of individual to serve as a special counsel in the Russia investigation.”
The initial reactions from many members of Congress were full of praise for the former FBI director.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), while offering cautions on Mueller’s ability to conduct an independent investigation, called him “someone with a history of expertise and experience with the guts and backbone to stand up and speak out against any kind of political influence.”
Rep. Peter J. Roskam (R-Ill.) called him “a man of the utmost integrity.”
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) called Mueller “somebody we all trust.”
“There’s not anybody with as much credibility internally or whose integrity is as unimpeachable as Bob Mueller,” said Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
There were a few members who were less openly enthused.
“I’m fine with it,” said Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas), who was among those who had resisted an independent prosecutor.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the generally pro-Trump House Freedom Caucus, called it “a prudent move, and it certainly means that the administration is taking it seriously.”
But he suggested Mueller “comes with more credibility on the Democrat side than on the Republican side,” a remark he said was based on “sworn testimony that he’s given here on Capitol Hill since I’ve been here.”
