Big Time Liars

Mueller lowers the bar

Whiteman by Robert Crumb

Whiteman by Robert Crumb

By lowering the bar and charging former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI, Mueller set the ridiculous standard that even the appearance of false testimony is felonious behavior.

If that’s the case, then the Department of Justice (DOJ) will have to charge former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe with perjury or related offenses for McCabe’s lies went far beyond the relatively innocent “lie” by Michael Flynn.

A report from the Office of the Inspector General indicates that McCabe lied at least four times to federal investigators.

Former FBI Director James Comey also lied, by Mueller’s standard, to Congress when he testified that he had not written his report on the Hillary Clinton email scandal before interviewing Clinton. Comey should also be prosecuted for exposing classified documents. He claims that he disclosed only unclassified portions of government documents—this is wrong as, in his case, the entire document is classified. Either Comey doesn’t know the law, or he just doesn’t care.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan both lied under oath to Congress on matters related to surveillance.

Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin flat-out lied by any standard when they told FBI investigators they had no idea that their then-boss, Hillary Clinton, was using an illegal private email server. Both had communicated with Clinton about it.

Mueller is said to be investigating whether Trump obstructed justice by Trump’s requesting that Comey go easy on Flynn.

If so, then the DOJ will have to look at Comey himself and DOJ officials who obstructed a federal court. On at least four occasions, they were not honest about the deeply flawed Christopher Steele dossier being the source of information used in applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Comey also has said that he predicted the nature of the Clinton email investigation on his assumptions about her chances of winning the presidency—another investigatory abuse.

After more than a year on the job, the Mueller team is reportedly is still looking into the possibility of election-cycle collusion with Russia by Trump officials. Yes, Mueller caught and convicted a bunch of Russians who interfered with the election, but they are far away and safe in Russia.

The path on Trump’s official colluding with the Russians, will lead Mueller’s DOJ counterparts to at the Clinton campaign, which paid opposition researcher Steele, a British subject, for dirt on Trump that was produced through collusion with Russian sources. For those who have not read the dossier, take a look. The dossier is not only relatively boring, it is a childish document, not even at the High School level in content. Not a very impressive even though Comey’s FBI used it to get a warrant from the FISA Court. And, by the way, according to Professor Alan Dershowitz, there is “no statute on the books against colluding with a foreign nation.” So Mueller does need real lies or even laws to convict his victims.

Mueller is also said to be investigating whether Trump or his advisers broke laws concerning the release of confidential government information.

If so, the DOJ may also have to indict Comey. He confessed to passing along confidential FBI memos to a friend for the expressed purpose of leaking their contents to the press.

High-ranking Obama administration officials may also be indicted, given that they requested the “unmasking” of American citizens whose communications were intercepted during the surveillance of foreign parties and then leaked the names of those citizens to the press. Mueller’s team apparently has assumed that Michael Cohen’s status as Trump’s personal attorney offers no protections under normal attorney-client privilege protocols.

If that is true, the DOJ will have to investigate why the FBI allowed Clinton aide Mills to pose as Clinton’s attorney and thereby be shielded from providing testimony on what she knew about the email scandal involving her “client.” Investigators have swarmed Cohen’s offices and residence, supposedly in fear that he might destroy pertinent records.
The FBI should probably then reopen the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, given that Clinton destroyed more than 30,000 emails, as well as computer hard drives that were requested by federal investigators.

Mueller has searched far and wide for wrongdoing but so far has found virtually nothing. Meanwhile, there is plenty of other wrongdoing already found, but no one seems to be looking at it.
Flynn, Cohen and other Trump aides are considered small enough fry to go after. Clinton, Comey, McCabe and others seem to the FBI big enough to leave alone.

No one thought Hillary Clinton would blow the election. Top Obama officials at the FBI, DOJ, intelligence agencies and National Security Council believed in 2015-16 that they could ignore laws with impunity since a protective Clinton administration would soon be in power. Politics have infected these investigations. Trump was obviously a threat to the Swamp, and FBI and DOJ lawbreakers were seen as custodians of the Swamp, the lobbyists, the power-brokers and the like.

The more Mueller searches (for what is his idea lawbreaking), the more he inadvertently underscores that all lawbreakers must be subject to the same standard of justice.
Ironically, Mueller’s investigation has reminded America that it is past time to call Comey, McCabe, James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan to account. Rod Rosenstein should not escape comment as he has allowed Mueller to go far beyond the original scope of his investigation to such unrelated matters as Stormy Daniels.

It looks like, a reckoning is near.
