USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Robert Mueller’s Democrat investigators likely acquired NRA tax filings in expanding witch hunt,” Gateway Pundit reports. He’s commenting on an assessment by “legal experts” published by McClatchy that “it would be routine for Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators, who are looking at the NRA’s funding as part of a broader inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections, to secretly gain access to the NRA’s tax returns from the Internal Revenue Service.”
That would be a surprise no one, at least to those who have kept an eye on Mueller’s decisions over the years. What’s clear is that the self-proclaimed “Republican” is a creature of what is now being called the “Deep State.” His regard for the Constitution, and particularly for the Second Amendment, seems to be that they are inconveniences to be disregarded or obstacles to be gotten around.
“Does that only apply to a U.S. citizen that’s overseas, or does that apply to a U.S. citizen that’s here?” Rep. Kevin Yoder asked then FBI Director Mueller about an order from Attorney General Eric holder authorizing the assassination of Americans fighting on the side of “terrorists.”
“I’d have to go back, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller replied. Watch for yourself.
Think about that and what it means about any orders he – or those working for him whose careers depend on carrying them out – would not obey. It makes it fair to ask if the so-called “Deep State” succeeds in its coup against the duly-elected president and if patriots refuse to accept that, does Mueller think assassinating them would be Constitutional? And do his supporters think his hedging was in any way excusable?
Also seemingly not an issue (at least with the media): As head of the FBI, Mueller was a key Obama administration player during Operation Fast and Furious. The Bush appointee was asked to stay on beyond his 10-year term just as things were starting to heat up on investigations by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Significantly, Mueller made it clear he did not approve of the Heller decision, telling the media the Supreme Court ruling “may harm efforts to deter violent crime in communities and college campuses.”
Apparently believing himself more qualified than the Founders to determine what is “necessary to the security of a free State,” Mueller instead endorsed so-called “gun-free” campuses and asserted “I tend to believe weapons harm people and more often than not they harm the people carrying them.”
But not, of course, if they are in the hands of the “Only Ones” approved by “monopoly of violence” beneficiaries like himself. Mueller offers nothing to substantiate his absurd bias, because it’s not founded in reality.
When you think about the power Mueller has commanded and now holds, that’s unacceptable.
And it’s no surprise his “brother in arms” James Comey, is coming out against the right to keep and bear arms. Does anyone really believe trying to drag NRA into the “collusion” conspiracy theory is simply a coincidence?
