Former special counsel and witch hunt extraordinaire, Robert Mueller, lied under oath during his pathetic day of testimony this summer before two House committees when he said he was not pursuing the FBI director’s position to replace James Comey on the day he visited President Trump at the White House.
Numerous administration officials have said that Mueller was indeed pursuing the open position as the director of the FBI. They told Fox News that there are government documents that prove he was interviewing for the position.
The dirty little secret is James Comey was there to block any attempt by the FBI to investigate all of the corruption and spying the Obama administration did on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton. Comey had been fired, and the deep state panicked, so they had Rod Rosenstein, the then Deputy Attorney General, and de facto Attorney General since the utterly worthless Jeff Sessions had recused himself, escort Mueller through the White House to interview with Trump for Comey’s job.
That interview happened on May 16, 2017. Trump didn’t hire Mueller, because he didn’t want someone from the Bush era, he wanted someone new. So, the very next day, on May 17, 2017, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as the special counsel to investigate the Trump-Russia collusion hoax perpetrated by Democrats to cover up the monumental amount of corruption that took place during the election.
Mueller was supposed to take over Comey’s job to block any investigations into the spying by the Obama administration, and when Trump didn’t hire him, Rosenstein appointed Mueller to investigate the same man who 24 hours earlier shot him down for a job. Can you say conflict of interest?
“The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions,” then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in an email to Mueller on May 12, 2017. “The boss” was Jeff Sessions, who had recused himself from the Russia probe, so this means that the president would not have known either.
From Fox News:
A source close to Rosenstein confirmed to Fox News that he had confidential conversations with Mueller about whether he would be willing to serve in the event he needed to appoint a special counsel. These conversations began on May 12, 2017, prior to Mueller’s meeting with the president on May 16, 2017, the source acknowledged.
At the time of the now-famous May 16, 2017 meeting, James Comey had been fired as FBI Director just days before and — unbeknownst to the president — Mueller would end up being named special counsel the very next day to oversee the Trump-Russia probe.
The president has repeatedly claimed that Mueller – who served as FBI Director under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama – met with him about returning to lead the Justice Department. The president has pointed to this to argue it was a conflict for Mueller to become special counsel, saying he opted against hiring Mueller as FBI Director.
But Mueller, in his July congressional testimony, denied the claim, saying he believed he was giving “input” to the president about the position.
“My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller said on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.”
John Dowd, one of the president’s attorneys while the probe was going on, came down on Mueller for meeting with Trump the way he did on May 16, 2017. Dowd said it was “most dishonorable conduct I have ever witnessed.” He added, “Capt. Robert Mueller, USMC, sits in front of his commander-in-chief being interviewed for FBI director knowing he is going to investigate the president and never says a word.”
The president has also said that there were “numerous witnesses” to the meeting.
“It has been reported that Robert Mueller is saying that he did not apply and interview for the job of FBI Director (and get turned down) the day before he was wrongfully appointed Special Counsel” Trump tweeted the day of Mueller’s Capitol Hill testimony. “Hope he doesn’t say that under oath in that we have numerous witnesses to the interview, including the Vice President of the United States!”
It was reported earlier this month that Mueller went back to the WilmerHale law firm, after ending his work as special counsel. Interestingly, one of WilmerHale’s biggest clients is China, and the law firm has bragged about the incredibly lucrative trade deals they secured for the communist country (at the expense of US trade).
The law firm brought Mueller on as a partner after he left government service, and they paid him an annual salary of $3 million a year. There was a candidate in 2016 who kept saying if elected he would renegotiate trade deals with China to make them more fair to the United States. That gave Robert Mueller 3 million reasons to take down Donald Trump. I’m just saying…
