By Ben Barrack

Special Counsel Bob Mueller looks like a trapped animal. In particular, Mueller’s team is looking into Russian collusion with the Donald Trump presidential campaign. However, the overarching mandate is Russian interference in the election, generally.

While there is evidence linking Russians to the election, it does not point to collusion with the Trump campaign. It points to the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and FBI leadership, with DOJ leadership knowledge. As a result, Mueller’s team is blowing smoke, not following it. Mueller could indict several individuals who supported Hillary, yet he could still remain true to the investigation’s charter.

So far, Mueller has indicted four individuals – Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos. Manafort and Gates were charged with crimes unrelated to the 2016 election and at a time well before doing any work for Trump. Flynn and Papadopoulos were charged with lying to federal agents. These are procedural crimes that had nothing to do with the election and are often the result of traps set by interrogators.

Mueller should Indict The REAL Criminals

When Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein issued the order that appointed Mueller, the heading mentioned neither the campaigns of Trump or Clinton. Most noteworthy is that it specified only Russian interference in the election. In section b., subsection i, it does mention the Trump campaign. However in subsection ii, Rosenstein clearly states that “any matters” are on the table if they come out of the investigation.

What has arisen from Mueller’s investigation is evidence of a conspiracy to exonerate Hillary from prosecution in 2016 and to frame Trump if he won the election. Most of all, it was forces loyal to the Clinton campaign that colluded with Russians to do just that.

Here is what we Know

In April of 2016, the law firm Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS then hired ex-British intelligence official Christopher Steele to do the legwork. Steele reached out to his Russian contacts and allegedly paid cash for intelligence.

What Steele eventually produced was libelous but not illegal. The now infamous dossier was referred to by then FBI Director James Comey as “salacious and unverified”. Nonetheless, the contents of the dossier were reported after Trump’s victory and BuzzFeed published it.

Excerpt of ‘Salacious’ and libelous Dossier

This is where the illegal part comes in.

When Trump was President-elect, the FBI was able to secure FISA warrants to conduct surveillance on communications between Russians and members of Trump’s campaign. As a result, Flynn’s conversations with a Russian diplomat were recorded. Someone unmasked Flynn’s name and leaked it to the press.

Especially relevant is that someone committed a felony by leaking Flynn’s name. At the Republican National Convention, Flynn led the crowd in chants of ‘Lock Her Up’. If there was anyone in the Clinton campaign’s crosshairs, Flynn was a top candidate:

Despite the dossier being salacious and unsubstantiated, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) believes the FBI used it as the basis for a FISA warrant. Earlier this month, Jordan presented that very hunch to FBI Director Christopher Wray:

As a result, there are several individuals who should qualify as persons of interest in Mueller’s investigation. Many or all of these figures very well may be indictable. Let’s have a look at them.

The INDICTABLES

Peter Strzok – Reassigned

Strzok (L) and Page (R)

In 2016, Strzok was the Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division at the FBI. He is the agent that interviewed Flynn in January of this year. That interview is the basis for the indictment against Flynn. During the presidential campaign, Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page exchanged text messages that showed hatred for Trump and a strong pro-Hillary Clinton bias.

One text in particular seems to indicate that Strzok and Page were conspirators – along with Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe – in a plot to undermine the Trump presidency should he get elected. In the exchange, Strzok refers to McCabe and an ‘insurance policy’ to stop Trump. The text is from August of 2016:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s [Andrew McCabe] office—that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40… “

Strzok’s defenders at the FBI explained that ‘insurance policy’ was nothing more than a reference to the Russia investigation. This would pose a serious problem for Strzok if he used the dossier to apply for a FISA warrant. It would make him a co-conspirator with the Russians to influence the election, as Fusion GPS financed the dossier through Steele and the Russians.

Lisa Page – Reassigned

Page was Strzok’s mistress and co-worker during the time in question. Based on the texts released to the public, Page had to have known what Strzok was doing. She either aided Strzok in the conspiracy or she is a fact witness relative to the details of the conspiracy. We know she was in McCabe’s office when the subject was being discussed. Mueller should give Page immunity, contingent on her giving up Strzok or other larger fish.

Andrew McCabe – Resigning

Andrew McCabe and his wife Jill – COMPROMISED by hundreds of thousands of dollars from Clinton ally MacAuliffe.

At the time of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server, McCabe was the Deputy Director of the FBI. He did not recuse himself from that investigation despite his wife receiving nearly $500k in campaign contributions from Virginia Governor Terry MacAuliffe’s PAC and more than $200k from the Virginia Democratic Party. MacAuliffe is an extremely loyal and close personal friend of the Clintons.

That alone lends itself to the perception that McCabe owed loyalty to the Clintons not just in relation to her server but also in regard to her campaign. That leads us to the August 2016 meeting in McCabe’s office at which both Strzok and Page were present. At that time, McCabe’s loyalty to the Clintons should have been a concern. Mueller should want to know what McCabe, Strzok and Page discussed in that meeting. Who else was there?

Unfortunately, McCabe’s testimony has not been open to the public. However, soon after back-to-back closed door meetings with Congressional committees, McCabe made it known that he will be retiring next year. If he did nothing wrong, why would that be necessary?

If Page takes a plea deal to implicate Strzok, Strzok may need a plea deal to implicate McCabe.

Jill McCabe

While Jill McCabe can’t be expected or required to testify against her husband, she too is a fact witness. What did she know about the source of the money given to her campaign by MacAuliffe? Were there any strings attached? Did anyone from MacAuliffe’s team reach out to her? Jill could be given a deal in which her husband is protected from prosecution if she gives up bigger fish.

Bill Priestap

Priestap (L) and his wife Sabina (R)

This person is perhaps the most important, yet least recognizable name when it comes to figures in the Russia investigation. In essence, Priestap was Strzok’s direct boss.

In March of this year, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) asked the right questions for the first three minutes of her exchange with then FBI Director James Comey. At that House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) hearing, Stefanik was trying to get Comey to explain why Congress had not been briefed on the investigation into Russian interference.

The investigation started in July of 2016 but the FBI didn’t brief HPSCI until March. Stefanik got Comey to admit that these briefings should take place quarterly. Comey also said Congress wasn’t briefed because of the ‘sensitive nature’ of the investigation.

When asked whose call this was, Comey pointed to Priestap, without naming him:

The problem for Comey there is his reason for not briefing Congress. The sensitive nature of an investigation is no excuse to exclude Congress; it’s a reason to include them. As a result, the sources and methods the FBI used to initiate the investigation should be called more into question.

Priestap should be made to explain why he hid the details of a now extremely questionable investigation from Congress. He should not be permitted to point to the sensitive nature of the investigation.

At the time, Comey was Priestap’s boss. Did Priestap authorize the FISA applications Jordan asked Wray about? Did Comey know about them or did Preistap act alone? Comey deferred to Priestap when it came to notifying senior Congressional leadership.

An immunity deal with Strzok is possible here if – and only if – it leads to crimes committed by Priestap or others higher up than himself.

Sabina Menschel

Menschel is Priestap’s wife. Though not necessarily a key figure, she very well might be a fact witness. Since 2015, Menschel has been the CEO of K Street lobbying firm, Nardello and Co. However, her bio shows that after graduating from Harvard Business School, Menschel worked with “senior management” at the FBI to “strengthen… intelligence gathering capabilities”.

Image from Menschel’s Bio at Nardello

Coincidentally or not, this could be relevant when applied to the details of the Russia investigation.

Furthermore, Menschel has donated to multiple Democrat candidates, including to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign..

Congress should treat Menschel as a fact witness. At a minimum, it should depose her.

Bruce Ohr – Demoted

Ohr’s office was once four doors down the hall from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. It isn’t anymore because Ohr was demoted.

Why?

HPSCI obtained information that Ohr met with Steele in 2016. Furthermore, Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr worked for the very same firm – Fusion GPS – that contracted Steele to compile the salacious dossier on Trump.

Bruce – formerly associate deputy attorney general – also met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson after the election. This would have been the time that individuals like Strzok would have wanted to cash in on the ‘insurance policy’.

Ohr’s connections with Steele and Simpson would seem to implicate Rosenstein.

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Rosenstein confessed to knowing if the FBI paid Fusion GPS for the discredited dossier. Was Ohr the intermediary between DOJ and the FBI? If so, what did Rosenstein know and when?

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Rosenstein did not want to answer questions. First, Jordan grilled him (though he could have required Rosenstein to answer more questions at the beginning)…

Then, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) asked Rosenstein if he knew whether the FBI paid for the dossier. Rosenstein admitted to knowing the answer:

Was Ohr a rogue employee? Did Rosenstein look the other way? How well did Rosenstein run his office? Did he know what Ohr was up to or was he a co-conspirator?

If Ohr was the DOJ’s liaison to the FBI leadership that paid for the dossier, Rosenstein was either part of it or could be indicted for gross negligence. Rosenstein admitted to knowing if the FBI paid for the dossier. If the answer was “no”, there was no harm in him saying so. If the answer was “yes”, it could mean the FBI violated election laws. It also means that Ohr was involved.

Nellie Ohr

Bruce and Nellie Ohr

The wife of Bruce Ohr, Nellie worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election. HPSCI discovered this after it subpoenaed the bank records of Fusion GPS. Earlier this month, Simpson signed a declaration (affidavit) for HPSCI in which he admitted Nellie was an “official expert in Russian matters” and helped in the effort to show collusion between Russia and Trump.

[CLICK ON IMAGE TO SEE GLENN SIMPSON’S ENTIRE DECLARATION]

According to CNN, Nellie also speaks “fluent Russian”.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross pointed out that Nellie and Bruce also worked together at the DOJ. Did Rosenstein know this? If so, when? If not, why not?

HPSCI investigators should depose Nellie Ohr about her work for Fusion GPS and everything that work entailed. Did anyone at DOJ know that she worked at Fusion GPS? If so, does that include Rosenstein. This is especially relevant because Rosenstein appointed Mueller in the first place.

If Rosenstein was aware of what either Bruce or Nellie Ohr was doing, he should have recused himself from naming a special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.

At a minimum, Nellie should be deposed and given immunity if – and only if – she gives up larger fish.

Jim Baker, FBI General Counsel – Reassigned

Ex-FBI General Counsel Jim Baker

New FBI Director Wray comes across as someone with loyalties to his Bureau’s previous leadership. His testimony before Congress demonstrated that clearly. That is what makes his decision to re-assign FBI General Counsel Jim Baker intriguing. That decision indicates that the pressure from the evidence obtained by Congressional Republicans is forcing Wray to give up some chess pieces.

Comey appointed Baker to his post in 2014 and expressed his displeasure at Wray’s decision via twitter:

As a sidenote, Comey’s twitter feed is a psychological exercise in cognitive dissonance.

In recent months, Circa News reported that Baker was under investigation by the DOJ for leaking classified information to the media.

The timing of Baker’s “Reassignment” is suspicious. Just days earlier, McCabe delivered testimony behind closed doors, to two Congressional Committees.

If Baker is the source of classified leaks, Mueller’s team should consider granting him immunity if, and only if, he gives up larger fish.

Glenn Simpson

Jacoby (L) and her husband Simpson (R)

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson is as close to ground zero in this conspiracy as anyone, save for Steele. However, like anyone in the eye of a hurricane, he could be safe from legal jeopardy. Simpson is a dirt-digger for hire. His job is often to make political opponents of his clients look like criminals, thugs and monsters. His firm attempted to do this to Trump by connecting him to Bill Clinton’s pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein.

What we know is that Fusion GPS was hired by the law firm Perkins Coie, which was retained by Hillary and the DNC, to connect Trump to Russia. Doing that may be sleezy but it’s not necessarily illegal.

Simpson’s value may very well be in what and who he knows. Giving up the Ohrs was a good start but Simpson likely has more detail to provide. Congress should compel him to provide it with depositions and subpoenas.

If Simpson can help prove the FBI used his document to obtain a FISA warrant, he should reveal that information. Otherwise, Simpson should be found in contempt.

Mary Jacoby

Jacoby is the spouse of Simpson. She has also co-authored articles with her husband for the Wall Street Journal. Furthermore, Tablet reported that Jacoby published an extremely informative Facebook post that has since been taken down. According to the alleged screenshots, seen by Tablet, Jacoby boasted in June of 2017:

“It’s come to my attention that some people still don’t realize what Glenn’s role was in exposing Putin’s control of Donald Trump… Let’s be clear. Glenn conducted the investigation. Glenn hired Chris Steele. Chris Steele worked for Glenn.”

Of course, we now know that Nellie Ohr worked for Simpson too. Her ability to speak Russian speaks volumes. To this point, Jacoby and Simpson represent no fewer than three married couples tied directly to this scandal. Strzok and Page represent an adulteress one.

A criminal conspiracy made up of married couples can benefit those conspirators. In criminal cases, prosecutors cannot compel spouses to testify against one another. Known as Marital Privilege, all communications between spouses during the marriage are off limits to prosecutors.

Were these arrangements in the calculus of the conspirators?

Prosecutors may have a difficult time in depositions with Jacoby but she could still be a helpful witness relative to the larger conspiracy to frame Trump. For example, she could talk about her direct dealings with Nellie Ohr and/or Steele.

The information she voluntarily posted on Facebook is very instructive and would fall under marital privilege had Jacoby not made it public.

Sally A. Moyer

Like Page, Moyer is an FBI attorney. HPSCI chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, recently sent a letter to Deputy AG Rosenstein. In it, he asks Rosenstein to make several FBI officials available for interviews with his committee.

We do not know the reason for Nunes’ interest in speaking with Moyer but it could have something to do with why the DOJ has been stonewalling the release of subpoenaed documents. In the letter, Nunes implied the DOJ lied about the existence of those documents.

Moyer appears to have been with the FBI for 14 years and there is not much information available. However, there is a reason Nunes wants to speak with her.

Greg Brower

Brower (R) often accompanies FBI officials to hearings

Chairman Nunes also included Brower in his list of people at the FBI he wants to interview. Brower may not have a lot of name recognition but if watch FBI officials testify before Congress, you likely would have seen him. He is the FBI’s liaison to Congress. As such, he has the FBI’s interests at heart but is their guy to communicate with Congress.

As with Moyer, Nunes’ interest in Brower is unknown – especially since Brower’s job is to communicate with Congress – but the HPSCI chairman made it clear he isn’t just frustrated with the DOJ’s stonewalling. Especially relevant is his assertion that he was lied to about the existence of the documents.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cited Brower for sexual discrimination. In it, the commission determined Brower to be ‘hostile’ to a female prosecutor in the 2008-09 time frame.

In February of this year, Comey appointed Brower to his current post. Did Comey know about the discrimination case? Did Brower withhold it? In any event, Brower’s loyalties to Comey could be strong.

That said, he likely has many of the answers to Nunes’ questions. As special counsel, Mueller should be probing as well.

Bruce Ohr, Strzok, Page, and Baker are the other individuals Nunes wants to interview.

Christopher Steele

Ex-MI6 Agent Christopher Steele

As a former British MI6 agent, Steele’s role in this conspiracy is both central and enigmatic. If you follow the money, it flowed from Hillary and the DNC, to Perkins Coie (Marc Elias), to Fusion GPS, then on to Steele, who allegedly used that money to purchase information from the Russians. Steele used that information to compile the infamous Trump dossier.

This is what makes Jacoby’s Facebook post so potentially relevant. If true, Simpson’s wife moved the conspiracy further upstream toward the Clintons.

Steele may or may not know anything about such a nefarious plot. Intelligence agents often operate on a ‘need to know basis’ for these kinds of reasons.

Hence, Simpson would have been much more central to the conspiracy. He too may have been on a ‘need to know basis’ but needed to know much more if he also had Nellie Ohr working for him.

Perhaps most noteworthy is the fact that Bruce Ohr not only met with Simpson but was working four doors down the hall from Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller as special counsel.

Even Hillary had to admit to using Fusion GPS for opposition research on Trump. She begrudgingly did this but that isn’t the crime. The crimes revolve around Democrats and bureaucrats using the dossier as an intelligence document to frame Trump.

This is where the claim of opposition research takes a dramatic turn in conspiracy to affect an election and then frame the president-elect when Hillary didn’t win.

That scenario is chock full of crimes.

Available evidence suggests that while Steele is a key figure, Simpson may be the central one in this investigation.

David Kramer

David Kramer, via McCain Institute

A senior fellow at the McCain Institute, Kramer is a close associate of U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ). He also traveled to London to meet with Steele – at McCain’s request – in November of 2016, shortly after the election. Kramer then brought the dossier back with him and gave it to McCain, who then gave it to the FBI, which already had possession of it.

Kramer was interviewed earlier this month by HPSCI and told the committee he knew the identities of Steele’s Russian sources; he would not reveal them. That prompted the committee to subpoena Kramer, who is expected to testify early next year.

A look at Kramer’s bio on the McCain Institute website reveals a man with expertise in Russian studies:

Prior to moving to Washington, he was a Lecturer in Russian Studies at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. and a teaching fellow at Harvard University. He also served as an analyst for the Christian Science Monitor Network during the collapse of the Soviet Union. A native of Massachusetts, Kramer received his master’s in Soviet studies from Harvard University and his bachelor’s degree in Soviet studies and political science from Tufts University.

McCain’s role in or knowledge of Kramer’s actions is noteworthy. It’s also shrouded in mystery because he’s not talking about it.

In addition, the Senator’s declining health seemed to coincide with the unraveling conspiracy. Earlier this year, McCain was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Later, he was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot, due to an achilles injury. Especially curious is that some time later, McCain was seen wearing the boot on his other foot. Pressed to respond, McCain’s reason for the switch was less than convincing.

McCain had injury to right achilles but switched walking boot.

Sally Yates – Fired

Yates with former boss Eric Holder, shortly after Trump fired her.

After the departure of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates became Acting Attorney General. Based on testimony Yates gave to a Senate Judiciary subcommittee early this year, she very much could be part of the conspiracy to frame Trump.

Soon after Trump’s inauguration, Yates accompanied a “senior member of the National Security Division” (presumably Strzok’s boss, Bill Priestap) to meet with the White House counsel to discuss a “sensitive” matter involving new National Security Advisor Flynn. The problem for Yates is how the details about Flynn were obtained. The intelligence community (IC) unmasked Flynn’s name while surveilling the Trump campaign, authorized by a FISA warrant. Someone then feloniously leaked Flynn’s name to the media.

If the FISA Court (Federal International Surveillance Act) granted the IC warrants based on “opposition research” disguised as a dossier, Yates’ testimony indicates she knew about it. At a minimum, she briefed White House counsel’s office based on illegally obtained information.

Here is an excerpt:

“We began our meeting (1/26/17) telling him that there had been press accounts of statements from the vice president and others that related conduct that Mr. Flynn had been involved in that we knew not to be the truth.”

Yates declined to answer the obvious follow-up question. How did she obtain that information? She admitted to knowing but could not answer because the information was classified. This knowledge could make Yates a co-conspirator.

Watch Yates admit to potential crimes:

Flynn was interviewed by Strzok on January 24, 2017. Mueller’s team indicted Flynn based on alleged lies he told to Strzok in that interview.

Just four days after meeting with the White House counsel, Yates refused to implement Trump’s order on a travel ban. Trump fired her that day.

Andrew Weissmann

Special Counsel Mueller’s lead investigator is Andrew Weissmann, who has exhibited extreme pro-Hillary and Democrat bias. He sent an email to Yates on the day Trump fired her. In the email – obtained by Judicial Watch – Weissman said he was “in awe” of Yates for her insubordination.

Email from Weissmann to Yates on the day she was fired.

In addition to Weissmann being a donor to Democratic candidates, he also attended Hillary Clinton’s election night ‘victory’ party.

At a minimum, Weissmann has a screaming conflict of interest relative to the Mueller investigation.

Since 2015, Weissmann has led the DOJ’s criminal fraud division. As a prominent figure with the DOJ, did Weissmann know any of the details about the dossier’s creation?

Eric Schneiderman

New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has mad no secret of his contempt for Trump. POLITICO reported earlier this year that Schneiderman is working with the Mueller team. With this partnership, Mueller is demonstrating even more bias in an investigation that should be anything but.

Jeannie Rhee

Another member for Mueller’s team is Jeannie Rhee, who is also beset with conflicts of interest. Rhee represented Obama advisor Ben Rhodes during the investigation conducted but the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Rhee also represented the Clinton Foundation as well as Hillary Clinton personally during the email investigation.

Zebley (L), Weissman (C) and Rhee (R)

Before working for Mueller on the Russian investigation, Rhee worked for Deputy FBI Director McCabe. This would be the same McCabe who Strzok implicated in the conspiracy to frame Trump with “an insurance policy”. Rhee’s presence on the Mueller team looks more like that of someone defending the real criminals.

Aaron Zebley

Zebley is an attorney on Mueller’s team who represented Clinton IT specialist Justin Cooper, who implicated Hillary’s aide Huma Abedin in lying to federal officials. In fact, it was Strzok to whom Huma lied, when she said she did not learn of Hillary’s email server until after she left the State Department in 2013.

In Congressional testimony last year, Cooper said that Abedin instructed him to build the server.

Most noteworthy here is that prosecutors did not charge Abedin with lying to Strzok. They did charge Flynn for doing so. In addition, thanks to emails obtained by Judicial Watch, we now know that Strzok allowed Huma to walk after finding classified emails on her now criminal husband’s laptop. This reality implicates Strzok and Comey for obstruction of justice. In this regard, Mueller’s team is acting more like defense attorneys for Abedin, Strzok and Comey than it is, investigators.

Worth noting is that Zebley knows all of this and is clearly not the unbiased investigator Mueller would have us believe. He too is acting like a defense attorney, not an investigator.

James Comey – Fired

Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey Trump last year. Trump did so for two main reasons. First, he did not like Comey’s handling of the Russia investigation. Second, he did not like how Comey handled the investigation into Hillary’s email server.

Soon thereafter, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. Rosenstein’s action – especially in light of what we’ve come to know about his proximity to Ohr – was defensive in nature. With Comey out of the picture, Mueller essentially assumed his successor’s role at the FBI role to protect secrets. That is apparent now.

The role of Fusion GPS is coming clearer as well. As long as the dossier it produced was not used by the FBI, it was just opposition research. If and when the FBI – with DOJ help – used that dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Americans, individuals involved committed very serious crimes.

That is what makes this testimony from Comey last year very informative. In it, he admits to nothing more than knowing the name “Fusion GPS” and then declines to answer very specific questions he knows the answers to. Recent history demonstrates why he didn’t answer those questions; those answers implicated the FBI. If Comey were to answer those questions, it would point to a conspiracy between the Democrats and the Russians to frame Trump:

Here is the audio of the exchange between Comey and Graham:

Rod Rosenstein

When Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any and all matters related to the Russia investigation, those with far more reason to do so, did not. Deputy AG Rosenstein is one such individual. We now know that a key figure in the conspiracy – Bruce Ohr – had an office four doors down from Rosenstein at the DOJ.

That makes Rosenstein a witness, which means he has no business appointing a special prosecutor, especially one who highlights Rosenstein’s bias.

Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller smacks of Rosenstein having similar interests to Mueller and Comey.

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) grilled Rosenstein about why special counsels are in existence. In particular, Gowdy pointed to perceived conflicts of interest. Without naming them, Gowdy referred to Weissmann’s fawning email to Yates and referred to Yates as a “fact witness”.  At this point, Rosenstein didn’t just appoint a special counsel with a conflict. Rosenstein himself has several, which only makes his decision to appoint Mueller – and the many members of his team – more suspect.

While Gowdy may have been better served by making Rosenstein answer more questions, everything Gowdy highlighted was a direct reflection on Rosenstein. That reflection revealed an extremely biased and conflicted team, that included Rosenstein because he created it.

At the end, Gowdy gives Rosenstein a chance to speak. Rosenstein defended Mueller by saying that Strzok was sent packing after Mueller learned of the texts. What Rosenstein does not address is Strzok’s role in exonerating Hillary before the election. Again, this is a poor reflection on Rosenstein:

Robert Mueller

Mueller: Face of evil (via Doug Ross)

Mueller has no business leading this investigation. His team alone proves that. He is also a close personal friend to Comey. In short, he was a mentor to Comey.

That said, Mueller’s involvement in the Russia investigation is not about protecting his friends; it’s about protecting himself.

Mueller is a marine and Vietnam veteran. That’s not at all where he lost his honor. He lost it thanks to politics.

One week prior to 9/11, he was named FBI Director. In 2003, Mueller played a major role in shutting down Operation Green Quest, a dragnet designed to target domestic financiers of Islamic terrorism (Muslim Brotherhood). Unfortunately for Mueller, George W. Bush owed favors to one of the Brotherhood’s most influential figures in the U.S. – Talat Othman.

From then on, Mueller was dirty and became dirtier under the Obama administration.

Mueller in Damage Control Mode

Evidence suggests that the FBI Mueller once led paid Fusion GPS to present a salacious document that the FBI could use to illegally obtain warrants to spy on Americans that worked from the wrong campaign.

Mueller’s team looks like a group that is in damage control mode.

As for Mueller himself, he has a vested interest in not allowing his role in the Uranium One scandal to come to light.

That scandal implicates the highest Obama administration officials, to include Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, Timothy Geithner and others.

When the administration sold 20% of America’s uranium to the Russians, Mueller was a mule. That makes him no less guilty of treason.

His only defense is the Nuremberg defense; he was just following orders.

Unfortunately for Mueller, Operation Green Quest and Uranium One are the two bookends to his political career he appears to be desperately trying to extricate himself from.

That strategy is unraveling before his eyes.
