Posted on 11/11/2017 10:23:11 AM PST by mojito
In July 2016, the Obama administration announced its decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for felony mishandling of classified information and destruction of government files. In the aftermath, I observed that there is a very aggressive way that the Justice Department and the FBI go about their business when they are trying to make a case one profoundly different from the way they went about the Clinton emails investigation. There, they tried not to make the case.
That observation bears repeating today, as we watch Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation of any possible Trump-campaign collusion in Russias alleged interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. Mueller is a former FBI director and top Justice Department prosecutor. To say he is going about the collusion caper aggressively would be an understatement. The earth is being scorched by the stunningly large team he has assembled, which includes 16 other prosecutors (among them, Democratic party donors and activists) along with dozens of investigators (mostly from the FBI and IRS).
At the end of October, Mueller announced the first charges in the case. In the intensive commentary that followed, another investigative development attracted almost no attention. But in terms of Muellers seriousness of purpose, it speaks just as loudly as the George Papadopoulos guilty plea and the indictment of Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. Mueller succeeded in convincing a federal judge to force an attorney for Manafort and Gates to provide grand-jury testimony against them.

I know some here think Mueller is a secret good guy. I continue to have my doubts.

Sick and dismally depraved our government has been for the past decades.
Trey Gowdy thinks he is great and honorable.
...on so many levels.
“Read the whole thing - there’s a lot here.”
Yes, there sure is. It recaps the whole thing with lots of detail that has been forgotten.
For instance it references this:
“Hillary couldnt be proven guilty without proving the president guilty as well.”
“Obama not only engaged in the same type of misconduct Clinton did; he engaged in it with Clinton.”
Needs to be repeated:
“Hillary couldnt be proven guilty without proving Obama guilty as well.”
They engaged in the same conduct......together.
