William Taylor Joins Robert Mueller on the Ash Heap of the Deep State's Altar
Town Hall ^ | 11/15/2019 | William Marshall

Posted on 11/15/2019 10:08:39 AM PST by Signalman

This week we witnessed yet another august civil servant, Ambassador William Taylor, immolate a hard-earned reputation over a 50-plus year career on the altar of the Deep State.

Both Ambassador Taylor and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller began their public service careers as nobly as any American can - in the uniform of our country’s Armed Forces. Ambassador Taylor, a graduate of West Point and Mr. Mueller, a graduate of Princeton and Marine Corps Officer Candidate School, would lead men in combat as young officers on the battlefields of Vietnam. They would both be awarded Bronze Stars for their valorous deeds and Mr. Mueller a Purple Heart for injuries sustained in combat.

Following military service, they would go on to pursue careers in government, Mr. Mueller taking a legal path and Mr. Taylor primarily a diplomatic one, each reaching lofty heights in their respective fields.

But something happened on the way to the Deep State country club. They were enlisted by a desperate establishment suffering paroxysms in the face of a Trump administration determined to expose its massive corruption. Messrs. Taylor and Mueller were asked to man the ramparts anew, this time to defend an ossified, decrepit system of cronyism, pay-for-play, and sketchy family-enriching relationships between foreign governments and elite Americans politicians. Oh, the humanity!

In the case of Mr. Mueller, of course, he was to lead (ostensibly) a James Comey-engineered Special Counsel investigation that was to explore alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, as well as purported “obstruction” by President Trump to thwart inquiries into his supposed nefarious activities in what amounted to a fishing expedition. Or a witch hunt, to use the president’s preferred term.

Those who roped Mr. Mueller, about whom a halo of impeccable integrity had been cast, into this role had such high hopes. They were sure that his team of crack Trump-hating, Hillary Clinton-loving legal beagles would find something that could be used to destroy Trump and his odious presidency.

Alas for the Deep State, such was not to be. In a Thud Heard Round the World, Mueller’s investigative report landed like a telephone book on the Deep State’s stoop, and with a comparable amount of excitement contained within. They found nothing. No Russian-Trump collusion and no obstruction (though deftly trying to leave the door open on that score with spurious claims that it was up to Congress to determine whether obstruction occurred.) The wailing and gnashing of Adam Schiff’s teeth were audible for miles.

But not ones to give up the USS Destroy Trump ship, the Democrats in Congress demanded that Mueller appear before them on July 24 to testify as to his team’s findings. In a sad display of mental decline, and clearly demonstrating little grasp of the findings of the investigative team that he putatively led, Mueller revealed that he could not have located shoes in a shoebox.

As I wrote in these pages back in June, that was because Andrew Weissmann, Mueller’s long-time legal henchman and poster child of prosecutorial misconduct, in former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell’s terms, really ran the show.

The smell of Taylor’s burning short hairs is wafting across the country.

His career is finished.

The way Taylor was sorta grinning when Jordan was going over him, I think he could smell the smoke.

Yes...unfortunately, a propos there is a lot going on behind the scenes we don’t know about. Not all of it bad. If I didn’t know better, I would think pencil neck is a super secret double agent trying to out the deep state. If any republican tried to do it, no way would they have as much success!

I would feel sorry for Taylor and Mueller sacrificing their careers if they didn’t know any better. These men are old and they should be wise, but as anyone can see from a fumbling old fool like Jimmy Carter, age does not make you wise.

Doing something 50 years ago just means you did something good back THEN. It says nothing about who you are today.
John Glenn was a Hero in the cockpit, later in life he became a POS. John McCain was a crappy pilot, kept in because of influence, then shot down. His sick brain created ISIS, and he stayed in DC instead of spending the last year with his family...a POS move.

Mueller and Taylor are both POS.

The cult of the holy veteran somehow covers any democrat who serves ever. The rest of their lives they are somehow magically transformed into a super patriot who can never be wrong, treacherous, a liar, or a traitor.
This holy cult status does not cover any conservative.

You're absolutely right, what someone did when they are in their youth and before they were exposed to the corrosive Deep State siren song is on par with the "youthful indiscretion" phrase democrats toss around when one of theirs is exposed for having done something unacceptable or illegal when they were young.

It only applies to the democrat and republican Deep State pawns, though, never to someone who isn't on their payroll.

Saw the videos. If he weren’t dead, Fred Gwynne could play Taylor in the movie.
