Skip to comments.If Mueller Wasn’t in Charge, Who Was? A rundown of the possibilities and why they matter
Posted on 07/29/2019 8:31:26 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Special Counsel Robert Mueller had a bad day last week. The build-up to his congressional testimony rivaled that of Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capones vault. Endless fanfare and hype, but both Mueller and the vault were empty, devoid of treasure, or any smoking gun.
At one level, Mueller is a sad figure, a doddering old man, looking foolish on an international stage, after being praised for two years for his legal acumen and integrity.
Was his performance genuine or contrived? Was he trying to salvage his reputation as a card-carrying deep-state elitist by playing a sympathetic old man being badgered by nasty Republicans? Did Democrats throw him under the bus in their unending quest to nullify the 2016 election, regardless of the personal toll on him and his family?
Its clear he was not in charge of his own investigation. He not only didnt write the report, which bears his name, but its uncertain if he even read it. If he did, he was certainly unfamiliar with the basics of the investigation. Anyone who listens to conservative talk radio or watches any of the Fox News opinion shows knew far more about the Mueller Report than its namesake.
Mueller seems to know only what he read in the New York Times or Washington Post, or watched on CNN, understanding little more about the investigation than the average low-information Democrat voter.
Most readers of American Thinker know what Fusion GPS is and the role it played in the Russian collusion hoax. Or who some of the key players are including Christopher Steele, Glenn Simpson and Natalia Veselnitskaya. The former FBI director did not and could only say, Im not familiar with that.
If Robert Mueller wasnt in charge of the Mueller investigation, who was?

Of course this was a Weismann team from DOJ Main with full involvement of Obama players and all the crooked leftists in DOJ / FBI and throughout the Deep State.
Weismann is the Minister of Death in these things for the last 25 years.
we know this to be true because we stumbled over some of their text messages; Lord only knows what else was going on that we didn't accidentally find out about.
The author uses far too many words and side issues to get to the point. Something I find happens too often on American Thinker. That’s too bad, because they also do have some much better writers.
“what else was going on that we didn’t accidentally find out about”
And Mueller comically made the assertion that all his attorney’s were unbiased and he didn’t look at their political affiliation. Why not? The DoJ rules AND the Special Counsel law says they have to be unbiased - for precisely the reason we’re upset about it.
He’s not a blithering idiot. He knew damn good and well who they were and what they were about - it’s impossible to come up with a group of people that biased under random selection from within the DoJ. Basically Weissman got free reign to put together an assassination team.
True, but they very kindly identified themselves for the American people so when they go to jail for defrauding the government for $40 million.
“The author uses far too many words and side issues to get to the point.”
Nice to know Im not the only one who gets irritated with writers’ fluffy padding.
I was curious as to who the author pinned, but not interested enough to give the article a hit. I was waiting for someone else to post it on this thread.
They’re paid by the word, or so it seems. Also, if I took the time to read every article that’s posted, especially when titles like this beg for a quick answer, I’d be reading the equivalent of War and Peace every day :)
You would think that the author is paid, “by the word.”
But, if your complaint is only about “too many words” etc.,
you miss the point. You miss the forest, for the trees.
That is “Too bad.”
Drag that sorry bastard Vieseman before the Senate committee. Nadler is a joke.
No, I get the author’s point. They just took (wasted) too many words, too many sentences, too many paragraphs getting there.
In the gestapo accent of Mark Levin, Andrew Weissman!!!!!!!!!
look at the beak on that SOB!
Muller appears to be near that day when his middle age children take his car keys away from him.
“No need to read the article when I can answer the question; Andrew Weissmann was in charge.”
Yepper, u know, the guy who put INNOCENT guys in jail by hiding EXCULPATORY evidence.. Their convictions were overturned (Why does this guy still practice law)but not before two of them DIED in prison!!
Ol’ Will was right...First we kill all the lawyers !
This thread can now be closed. That is the correct answer.
AT authors aren’t paid. Labor of love.
Articles are longer pieces. Blog pieces are shorter.
Part of writing is telling a story. Some write more. Read VDH for example.
If you want short and concise, stick to Twitter.
And another thing particular to Free Republic, the excerpt.
So by the time the bot computes the allowed words, not one has anything to do with the actual title.
The meat is in 6 or 7 paragraphs, and never gets posted.
When its the WSJ behind a paywall, for example, clicking the link without having a subscription is worthless.
