While I keep hearing praise from the left (and RINO lefties like McCain) for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, I have to wonder if they know history.
To be sure, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is Comey’s BFF. He is hiring Clinton connected investigators faster than Hillary using BleachBit on a server. His law firm worked with the Left-wing Civis Analytics as recently as 2014-2015. Mueller also bent over backwards to please radical Islamist groups and played a significant role in removing the words “radical Islam” from FBI training manuals.
Now even lefties are starting to worry as history reveals itself. Back in 2006, the Justice Department found evidence that Mueller, then the FBI Director, falsified testimony about the bureau’s surveillance on an anti-war protest in 2002. Specifically, the DoJ discovered that Mueller improperly opened and expanded investigations into certain Left-wing groups.
However, everyone seems to have totally forgotten about the Coleen Rowley Memo. Under Mueller’s leadership at the FBI, the agency ignored warnings from the field before Sept. 11. F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller stamped ”classified” on the memo to him from Minneapolis agent and Counsel Coleen Rowley. Time, at the time, had the following cover story – “The Bombshell Memo: How the FBI Blew the Case”
Some of the revelations:
Last summer, the Phoenix field office, on the trail of a couple of radical Islamists, recommended strongly that F.B.I. headquarters examine flight schools around the nation for potential terrorists; the Washington bureaucrats did nothing.
Soon after, Minneapolis agents took action to jail another radical, Zacarias Moussaoui, a French citizen now accused as ”the 20th hijacker,” for overstaying his visa. The agents asked F.B.I. headquarters for permission to examine his laptop computer. Permission was denied, despite reports from French intelligence relayed from our Paris embassy of his involvement with international terrorists. Not until after Sept. 11 did we learn it contained the phone number of Mohamed Atta’s roommate.
Agent Rowley asserted, ‘‘Discovery of other terrorist pilots prior to September 11th may have limited the attacks and resulting loss of life” and ”your statements demonstrate a rush to judgment to protect the F.B.I. at all costs.”
Mueller would seem to be an odd pick for special counsel, unless of course you want to make sure the investigation does not turn up any Clinton / Russia / FBI cover-up.
