Breaking! Former FBI Director Mueller Appointed Special Counsel Of Russia Probe

ROBERT MUELLER. NAMED SPECIAL PROSECUTOR BY DOJ.

The swamp is draining President Donald Trump. He’s bloodied from a thousand cuts of the Deep State’s sword. Today he has been sliced and diced again, as Rod Rosenstein, Acting Attorney General, appointed a special counsel, aka special prosecutor, to lead the investigation into the affairs of Trump.

While ongoing FBI, media, and Congressional investigations have yielded no evidence of wrongdoing by Trump or any of his associates, today’s news will likely further cripple the already mortally wounded Trump administration.

This news should be seen as just another step in the soft coup that is intended to overthrow the lawfully elected president, an outsider with no Washington ties or supporters.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

The Department of Justice has announced the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.

Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the decision to appoint Mueller, the Justice Department told reporters Wednesday. It isn’t clear if Trump had a role in the decision, Bloomberg reported.

The appointment of Mueller, who oversaw the FBI during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, comes at a time when the White House is reeling from Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and allegations that Trump asked Comey in February to end his probe of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

While it’s often difficult to predict how politicians will react, the appointment of Muller should ease some of the tensions and gridlock in Washington DC as it should be seen as an overture to Democrats who have been demanding just this from the DOJ.

Additionally, since the Trump administration would likely not have conceded to this appointment if it had something material to hide, it will be perceived as validating, at least initially, Trump’s claims that he has not colluded with Russia, although the risk of a potential surprise announcement by the Special Counsel will linger as a cloud over the White House – and markets – for months to come.

Here’s Rosenstein’s letter. Click to enlarge it.

Mueller, 72, was appointed FBI Director by President George W. Bush in 2001 and served until 2013, when Comey took over. The DOJ has confirmed he will resign from his private law firm to avoid any conflicts of interest. In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, as the U.S. was ramping up security, he joined then-Deputy Attorney General Comey in threatening to resign if the White House overruled a Justice Department opinion that domestic wiretapping without a warrant was unconstitutional.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously recused himself from any involvement in the Russia investigation due to is role as a prominent campaign adviser and surrogate.

Mueller’s appointment aims to quell the wave of criticism that President Donald Trump and his administration have faced since Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week in the middle of the FBI’s intensifying investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials. That criticism swelled on Tuesday evening as excerpts of a memo Comey wrote in February surfaced, in which Comey writes Trump asked him to drop the FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

As Bloomberg adds, unlike Comey, who Trump charged was a “showboat” and a “grandstander,” Mueller typically shied away from making comments to reporters and routinely refused to discuss ongoing investigations. He also won wide praise as FBI director from Democrats and Republicans in Congress, an attribute that may help steady concerns about the handling of the Russia probe.

While both Obama and Hillary Clinton were clearly implicated in numerous crimes during the Obama years, no independent investigations of those two Washington insiders ever took place.

The contrast is staggering. The implications for freedom and democracy are enormous. Whatever this country is now, it is no longer the country established by the Founding Fathers.

    • Mueller is probably as corrupt as the rest of them. Trump thought he could negotiate his way to getting the establishment to support him. I’ll compare him to the “Nigger” that moves into a formerly all white neighbor populated by Klansmen. That poor Nigger just isn’t going to win over his neighbors.

      • “Trump thought he could negotiate his way to getting the establishment to support him.”

        I bet that creep PRIEBUS talked him into that delusion. As soon as Trump hooked up w/Priebus, everything began changing.

        If Trump was “using” Priebus to make sure he got elected, fine, that worked. But he should have cut the string ASAP thereafter.

        Maybe Pence helped dupe Trump into that line of thinking as well. I’ve seen comments that what the Deep State wants is to get Pence as President.

  1. It sounds like a lost cause on the surface but, as always, Mitchell is tweeting that this is another case of Trump “calling their bluff.” I don’t really understand the dynamics yet.

    Here’s a copy of the ORDER by Rosenstein mentioned in your graphic. Note the SPECIFIC things in paragraphs (b)(i)(ii)(iii) that Mueller will be “investigating.” One person tweeted that they think it “…Seems the investigation is actually going to be into Comey’s testimony to Congress.” I don’t know, it sounds like it extends far enough to cover most anything. What say ye?

    • And did a HARDCOPY of the supposed “Comey Memo” ever show up yet? Last I heard, some unnamed FBI dude merely “read part of it” to someone at NYT, I’m guessing over the phone. So the whole thing could be another big hoax.

      Cernovich had tweeted Tues./Wed. that Comey taking notes was a “…CYA thing, the oldest trick in the book,” or words to that effect.

      • Jlangdale on Twitter believes that the Comey memos were posted to Google Documents. You may want to follow him. He’s usually wrong, but his stuff is still thought provoking and intelligent.

      • Thanks for the J Langdale tip. I can see that he likes to analyze things. I do like that.

        I hadn’t heard the Comey Memo(s) were on Google Docs. All the Congress Critters asking for copies should go have a look online. 🙂

  2. MSM creates “truth” along with the political lackeys to back them up:

    “The Assembly has witnessed over the last weeks how historical truth is established; once an allegation has been repeated a few times, it is no longer an allegation, it is an established fact, even if no evidence has been brought out in order to support it.”

    –UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold, killed in a suspicious plane crash in 1961.

    • Sounds like Alinsky #11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”

      Or

      If you push a lie hard enough, it becomes a fact.

  3. 1-minute clip by Roger Stone, from after Rosenstein appointed “special counsel” (not “special prosecutor”) Mueller. Stone says this is a GOOD THING for two reasons:

    1_It will put an end to the incessant months-long speculation re Russia interfering in Trump Campaign, etc.

    2_Trump obviously does not fear such a “special counsel” investigation.

    Stone has been begging for MONTHS & MONTHS via his twitter feed, that he would LOVE to be interrogated by Congress re such leaks, as he himself has also been blamed for being a part of it. His attitude has been all along, BRING IT ON, BRING IT ON, I’M WAITING, I’M READY.

  4. Hope not, but the way they are already acting… as if all their brains at the same time were flipped by a switch…

    When Ryan&McConnell smell enough blood the entire GOP Establishment will turn on the President like a pack of wolves.

  5. I thought Kucinich was a Libertarian. Either way, good that he can think for himself & see the obvious…

  6. New thought, I wonder if Trump & Comey planned this together at their 2/14 meeting, in order to squeeze out leakers?

  7. The Newt aproves, of course…
