The Patriot Post® · Growing Stench of Politics Rising From Team Mueller
An all-too-familiar stench of politicization is now strongly wafting from Robert Mueller’s investigation, which is looking more and more like a swamp creature than a corruption fighter. Even as there continues to be a total lack of evidence supporting the Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy, on which the creation of Mueller’s special counsel hinged, there is a growing pile of evidence suggesting that the investigation itself is compromised; that it is rife with Obama-Clinton deep state corruption.
For starters, six of Mueller’s team of 15 lawyers were Hillary Clinton donors. While that’s not illegal, it does little to alleviate concerns over the possibility of the investigation being a designed partisan hit job. Second, and what is proving to be most concerning, are the incestuous connections between Mueller team members and Obama/Clinton.
So who are these Mueller team members who are potentially compromised?
Andrew Weissman is a veteran prosecutor who was found to have praised Sally Yates, an Obama holdover at the Justice Department, for her refusal to enforce Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban executive order. Weissman emailed Yates, “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respect.” Sounds impartial, no?
How about Aaron Zebley, who had a long working relationship with Mueller and was known as his “right hand” man when Mueller headed the FBI. In 2015, Zebley represented Justin Cooper, Clinton’s IT staffer who helped set up the former secretary of state’s secret home server, and participated in the smashing of Hillary’s Blackberry devices to avoid them being subpoenaed.
Then there is the too-hot-to-trot pair Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, both no longer on the Mueller team, who were engaged in an extramarital affair. The pair shared a vast number of texts in 2016 that are currently being reviewed by Justice Department. The content of those texts show both were highly critical of and opposed to Trump while they favored Hillary, with texts such as “F Trump” and “Hillary should win 100,000,000 – 0.”
But there’s more to these two. Both Strzok and Page were key players in the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton email scandal. Strzok was responsible for the significant language change that softened the implications against Clinton from criminal “grossly negligent” to the less prosecutable “extremely careless.” Strzok was the agent who oversaw the FBI’s interviews of Mike Flynn, who has subsequently pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. And Strzok was also a key figure in the FBI’s handling of the fake Clinton/DNC-funded anti-Trump “dossier” created by Fusion GPS.
Speaking of Fusion GPS, it is now being reported that Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official who was recently demoted from a senior position, is married to a woman who worked for Fusion GPS through last fall. Her online published works shows that she has written extensively on Russia-related topics, and Fusion GPS has confirmed her hiring to investigate Trump.
There are just too many convenient connections here for one to naively conclude that the Mueller team is engaged in an impartial and unbiased investigation. Rather, this is a witch-hunt looking for any means possible for taking down the target.
