Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. What if Mueller Was “Used” from the Start?

 

Yesterday was a sad day for Robert Mueller. Many have already focused on his inept and befuddled performance in front of the House Committees. After reflecting on the two meetings, I have an even more tragic and disgraceful theory of what we watched.

They used Mueller from the very beginning.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome Judge T.S. Ellis reminding Special Counsel Bob Mueller that he does not have “unfettered power” in his investigation and that he shouldn’t use his position to compel testimony towards a desired end in his probe. They also also shake their heads as liberals […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Gowdy on Mueller: Let the Man Do His Job!

 

Trey Gowdy is one Congressman whom I greatly admire. He was the 7th Circuit Solicitor and led an office of 25 attorneys and 65 employees before joining Congress. He has been at the forefront of the Congressional investigations and doesn’t mince words when he gives his opinion.

So when people have repeatedly attacked Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his work, Trey Gowdy supports him and suggests we let him do his job. As a result, I ask, why there is so much turmoil around the situation, so much gnashing of teeth? So, I investigated, and I think I know why people are so upset. And frankly, I think Trey Gowdy has the right idea.

I’ve wondered exactly what goes through Mueller’s mind these days. If Rush Limbaugh is right then Mueller is really going after Trump to damage him financially. I’ve always assumed that his goal is to stay in position as long as he can — certainly he wants to do as much damage as is possible for […]

David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are amused by the media frothing over President Trump allegedly trying to have Special Counsel Robert Mueller fired seven months ago, while largely overlooking the fact that Mueller wasn’t fired. They also discuss President Trump’s major concessions on amnesty in his his immigration legislation […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see many liberals suddenly coming to the realization that Bill Clinton’s behavior towards women was inexcusable and his accusers were treated badly when they came forward during his presidency, but they also note that this epiphany comes when Democrats want the […]

I think that it’s time to acknowledge that the Russia (it wasn’t really a hack but maybe there was influence on election which isn’t actually illegal unless there was corruption which no one has found but we are still looking) investigation needs to return to normal operation instead of the special counsel. I like the […]

Fire and Ice Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump couldn’t be more different, yet they have much in common. Both ran for the nomination of parties in which they are not real members. Both men recognized better than 20 competitors the brazen corruption of elites in Washington DC, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the coastal metropoles that […]

Prometheus Americus Watching Trump, a political neophyte, exhorting the forgotten with stolen memories from a golden age, unschooled in the Machiavellian DC art of dissembling, tweeting all night while the failing world sleeps, taking on all comers foreign and domestic with no hesitation, an angry reptile now caged by the God of establishment, tail swirling […]

A Glaring Conflict Mueller – a long legacy as an FBI man. Friendly and popular with everyone in the Bureau and DOJ. Colleague, friend, cheerleader, and mentor to his protege, James Comey. Is now in charge of investigating matters that directly involve decisions and conceivably illegal behavior by DOJ, FBI, and James Comey – institutions […]
