Special counsel Robert Mueller can’t seem to outrun his past.
We’ve previously reported on the former FBI director’s checkered history within the bureau. While he was overseeing the FBI, he had his hand in multiple shady dealings that involved the Kremlin.
For example, evidence was allegedly hidden by Mueller in 2010 which proved that Russian officials were trying to bribe their way into growing their atomic energy business in the United States.
Mueller received reports that Russian officials were donating large sums of money to the Clinton Foundation in order to win Hillary’s favor and purchase our uranium, but Hillary was never punished.
This doesn’t seem like the best man to be running an investigation into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia, yet here we are.
Now it’s being reported that Mueller’s connection with Russia doesn’t end with helping Hillary get rich. He also used his ties with Russia to call in a massive favor.
From The Hill:
[T]here’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.
In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.
A lawyer representing Deripaska said the billionaire spent approximately $25 million to assemble a private team that worked with his Iranian business contacts to try to rescue Levinson before then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton killed the deal for unknown reasons.
Former federal prosecutor David McGee, who represents Levinson’s family, stated that Levinson was very close to being released, and Hillary was set to give a statement “pointing the finger away from Iran.” Instead, she failed to make the agreed-upon statement, and the deal fell through.
Unfortunately, Levinson was never found. He is presumed dead, likely killed as a political prisoner in Iran.
Despite the mission’s failure, Deripaska’s involvement with the case begs an obvious question; what did Muller promise Deripaska in exchange for this multi-million dollar favor?
This evidence is a bombshell, proving that Mueller has the means, motive and opportunity to obstruct the Russia investigation. By focusing his attention on Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, he is merely trying to distract the public from his own collusion.
This story is proof our intelligence agencies don’t know what to do next. They’re stalling in an attempt to buy time before the midterms.
Those running the show are using Trump to advance their own agenda and will blame him for any public backlash. Democracy is being replaced by hypocrisy, and Mueller should be fired immediately.
