Swerving out of his lane, 73-year-old Special Counsel former FBI Director Robert Mueller has gone rogue, deviating from his mandate to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election and alleged Trump campaign collusion. Mueller’s found no evidence of so-called collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, compelling his team of 18 experienced federal prosecutors and litigators to go after extraneous crimes related to anyone remotely related to the Trump campaign. Indicting Oct. 30 67-year-old Trump’s former Chairman Paul Manafort for “conspiracy,” money laundering and tax evasion” for alleged crimes committed 10 years before the Trump campaign, speaks volumes about the extreme political bias against the Trump campaign. Investigating over a year, former FBI Director James Comey found no evidence of collusion, relying on Hillary’s paid opposition research.
Indicting Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates for potentially shady consulting deals with former Kremlin-backed Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovich, shows that Mueller has nothing of substance on Russian collusion. Democrats, led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Co-Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, rely heavily on Hillary’s bogus paid opposition research, insisting Trump coordinated with Russia to win the 2016 campaign. Trump’s rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, could not explain how, if Russia helped Trump, she got nearly 3 million more popular votes. Hillary, the Democratic Party and mainstream press wants the public to believe that Russia only targeted Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida, the so-called battleground states where Trump pulled off his unexpected 2016 election victory.
No one other that partisan hacks could believe the Russian meddling, knowing Hillary won nearly 3 million more popular votes. Yet all the investigative committees in Congress, including the Senate Judiciary, Intelligence Committees and Foreign Relations Committees and House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, used as evidence of Trump’s Russian collusion Hillary’s paid opposition research AKA the “dossier.” Paid by Hillary’s legal firm to Fusion-GPS, the dossier was designed to discredit Trump once Democrats knew he was the GOP’s nominee. Former Hillary Chairman John D. Podesta, a victim of alleged Russia email hacks, handed the dossier to Sen. John McCain (R-Az.), one of Trump’s biggest Congressional critics. McCain, in turn, gave the dossier to Comey in July 2016. Comey used the fake document to justify warrants in the Federal Intelligence Surveillaance Act [FISA] Court.
Before Comey got his mitts on the dossier, former President Barack Obama Justice Department used the “dossier” to wiretap Trump campaign officials, including so-called “incidental” collection. Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice admitted Sept. 13 to the House Intelligence Committee that she unmasked Trump campaign officials, looking into routine conversations with former Russian Amb. Sergey Kislyak. Rice didn’t admit that she was authorized to seek wiretaps in the FISA court by former Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch, all designed to discredit the Trump campaign. By the time the Oct. 19, 2016 debate rolled around in Las Vegas, Hillary was accusing Trump of being a “Putin puppet.” Comey and now Mueller hasn’t investigated the illegal use of the FISA Court wiretapping for political purposes. Nor has anyone asked the question whether or not Obama was behind the wiretaps.
Mueller’s gone rogue investigating whether or not former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn was paid by Turkish President Recep Ergogan to abduct exiled Turkish cleric Fetullah Gullen. Erdogan insists Gullen was behind the July 15, 2016 failed Istanbul coup. Erdogan rejects as “ludicrous” that he paid Flynn $15 million or any bounty to abduct Gullen to Turkey because Immigration Customs Enforcement [ICE] officials saw no probable cause for Gullen’s extradition. “All allegations that Turkey would resort to means external to the rule of law for his extradition are utterly false, ludicrous and groundless,” said Turkey’s Washington embassy. Reports of Mueller dragging Flynn into the Gullen allegations show how far Mueller has gone again to seek indictments. Flynn’s dealings in Turkey, whether legal or not, have nothing to do with the Special Counsel’s mandate.
Mueller’s focus on whether or not Flynn was paid by the Turkish government to abduct Gullen proves that Mueller has gone rogue when his mandate covers Russian meddling and alleged Trump collusion in the 2016 election. Whether or not Manafort violated U.S. laws related to foreign consulting is anyone’s guess. Accusing Flynn of participating in a plot to abduct Gullen goes over the top. Instead of going by the facts, Mueller’s chosen, like Comey, to rely on the bogus “dossier” and other highly speculative evidence. Whether Flynn’s consulting group had business dealing with Ankara doesn’t mean he was Erdogan’s paid hit-man. Calling on Mueller to resign Oct. 30, the Wall Street Journal saw enough with the Manafort indictment. Watching Mueller deviate from his mandate to investigate Russian meddling and alleged Trump collusion shows he’s gone rogue.
