Robert Mueller Breaks His Silence and Chimes in on Stone's Sentence Being Commuted
Townhall ^ | 07/12/2020 | Beth Baumann

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Saturday penned an OpEd in the Washington Post, slamming President Donald Trump's decision to commute Roger Stone's sentence. According to Mueller, even though Stone's sentence has been commuted, he "remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."

Mueller has repeatedly said his report speaks for itself, calling it his "testimony." It's why he refused to comment any further, until this opinion piece. Even during his testimony in front of Congress, Mueller remained rather tight-lipped to avoid straying away from the report's conclusions.

"The work of the special counsel’s office — its report, indictments, guilty pleas and convictions — should speak for itself. But I feel compelled to respond both to broad claims that our investigation was illegitimate and our motives were improper, and to specific claims that Roger Stone was a victim of our office," Mueller wrote. "The Russia investigation was of paramount importance. Stone was prosecuted and convicted because he committed federal crimes. He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."

According to Mueller, there was a reason that the special counsel's probe was focused on Stone.

"Stone became a central figure in our investigation for two key reasons: He communicated in 2016 with individuals known to us to be Russian intelligence officers, and he claimed advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ release of emails stolen by those Russian intelligence officers," he said.

The special counsel defended the work of his office, saying Stone was charged and convicted based on "facts" and "the rule of law."

"We made every decision in Stone’s case, as in all our cases, based solely on the facts and the law and in accordance with the rule of law," he wrote. "The women and men who conducted these investigations and prosecutions acted with the highest integrity. Claims to the contrary are false."

Stone, a political operative and former aide to President Trump, was sentenced to 40 months in prison, in part, for lying to Congress. He lied to the House Intelligence Committee about his attempt to obtain WikiLeaks' emails from Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

Mueller needs to STFU, be put in the day room, given his Xanax and watch “Matlock’’ reruns all day.

I’d bet that Mueller didn’t “write” anything.

‘The special counsel defended the work of his office, saying Stone was charged and convicted based on “facts” and “the rule of law.”’

Selectively enforcement of the rule of law is not justice. That’s why commuting his sentence is just.

The Seditionist had his henchman Weissman write this.

It’s nothing but vile trash from a gang of conspirators who use public money to further their own political bent by imprisoning their opposition.

Mueller does not have the mental capacity to “pen” anything. Suspect he does not remember who Stone is or why Weissman filed charges against him.

Unbelievable, Mueller’s dementia was very obvious during the Congressional hearings and this guy is making obnoxious statements about President Trump. Mueller never wrote one word about the investigation, it was all completed by other writers. To this day, Mueller has on idea what he is talking about since his dementia is growing rapidly and he is hanging on in the DOJ lining his pockets.

Wait a minute. I thought he had become a dementia-laden halfwit during his days of “testifying”. Joe needs to take whatever Mueller is taking. It’s some kind of wonder drug!

You made your play Mueller - you perp walked Stone and made a public stasi show trial and played your cards.

The case was insipid, politically motivated and politically tried on gotcha actions.

And Trump played his Trump card.

PS you’re going to lose Flynn too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s bizarre how the media requires treason and failure on a resume before they will endorse/publish what you write.

Robert Mueller was a disgrace and a traitor for his incompetence and attempt to overthrow the duly elected president of the US; let’s see what he has to say about the president now.

Brennan loves Muslims more than he loves Americans - get him to write for us! Word on the street is that his is a traitor - we gotta get him a platform to reach as many Americans as possible.

Aside from being a traitor to her country, Lisa Page is an unprofessional, amoral laughingstock and worked to undermine the president until she was fired. Another traitor? We can never have to much in the media. HIRE HER!
