Who Wrote the Mueller Report?

Opinion

Mueller Report Road Kill
Mueller Report Road Kill

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The biggest conclusion I reached after watching Robert Mueller in front of Congress was that he clearly did not have a detailed knowledge of the report issued in his name.

He failed to answer nearly 200 questions.

He frequently was not familiar with citations from his own report.

On several key points, he contradicted his own report and his own letters to Attorney General Barr.

When he said he never asked his team their political views I believe him.

It also signals that the most charitable conclusion you could reach was that Mueller had come of age in an era of professional responsibility and did not realize he now lived in an era of harsh, even vicious, partisanship.

My first reaction to his assertion that he did not ask the political opinions of his staff was that it was laughable that he could randomly assemble a hard line anti-Trump group of Democratic prosecutors without a single pro-Trump Republican lawyer in the room.

However, the more I watched him, the more I came to the conclusion that he had been a figurehead. The tough, younger Trump-hating Democrats had networked with each other and assembled a legal team dedicated to destroying Trump and protecting the Clintons.

Seen from this perspective, it is a tribute to President Trump that despite their best efforts these deeply hostile prosecutors simply could not find any evidence of serious wrongdoing.

They could write innuendo — and huff and puff — but in the end the Trump wall of obeying the law withstood the best these smart, tough, widely-experienced Democratic prosecutors could do.

Wednesday’s stunningly inadequate performance by a widely respected career civil servant (my own tweet on his appointment had been entirely positive and it was only while watching the team he assembled that I grew hostile to his project) raises its own new questions.

If Mueller has been as out of touch with his report over the last two years as he was yesterday, then who was driving the team and who was writing the report?

It is clear Mueller does not know the details of his own report or of the two years of investigations behind the report.

  • Who then does know all those details?
  • Who masterminded putting Paul Manafort in solitary confinement for months?
  • Who made the decision to not look into the Steele Dossier, the company that paid for it, or the links to the Clinton campaign?

After yesterday’s disastrous performance by the so-called leader of the Mueller investigation and report, the attorney general should ask for a thorough internal review of how that system worked, who made the decisions, and how internally hostile to the president they were.

There was no Mueller Report. There was a report signed by Mueller, but it was really someone else’s work. This was the biggest lesson from Wednesday’s hearings.

Wild Bill could be correct, Mueller just played stupid to get out of the conversations without implicating himself. He has a lot to hide in his career as a swamp creature. Weisemann has destroyed many people and he sure tried this time. For anyone who thinks, like the democrat candidates for president, that Trump is not the smartest in the room this should affect your thoughts. I do not like what he did to the 2A but he has been a straight shooter with the other challenges he has undertaken. It would be nice if he gave us something beyond… Read more »

Nothing surprising here folks. Lifer bureaucrat figurehead sucking at the taxpayer teat, meanwhile more lifer bureaucrats assemble a 500 page, $25 million dollar report that exposes nothing. Man do I love filing my income taxes to have it fund this BS.

Mueller, it is now clear, was a fraud. He was picked not because of his acumen, but because of a reputation long established behind which he could hide, while the investigation took place under the control of Andrew Weissman – one of the most unscrupulous attorneys in the country. Mueller was simply a figurehead, confused and senile, presented as a smokescreen to hide the treasonous coup attempt being engineered by the Clinton team selected by Weissman – like Woodrow Wilson after the stroke, while his wife ran the White House unbeknownst to the public. The evidence is the absurd fabrication… Read more »

Good read and so true. With respect to treason, these scumbags who orchestrated this political coup too should receive their style of due process – if we are unable via evidence to indict and convict them, surely we can label them traitors anyway since we cannot exonerate them!

NOBODY is Above the LAW, Lets INVESTIGATE The 4 W’s, Who, What. When, Where, of the Steele Dossier. Mueller knew Nothing about Fusion GPS / Glenn Simpson, SO someone in His Department made sure that wasn’t brought out. I HOPE that the AG will find out what Transpired.

Everything amiss in this country can be laid at the feet of lawyers if the examination is taken back far enough.

, Trump should have said, We are going to have a special vote so the American people can decide to spend 25 to 40 million dollars on a stupid investigation or fund a lottery to make 25-40 American citizens into new millionaire, tax free, next month!

“It also signals that the most charitable conclusion you could reach was that Mueller had come of age in an era of professional responsibility and did not realize he now lived in an era of harsh, even vicious, partisanship.” Mueller should have been in prison long ago for his part in shielding Whitey Bulger by leaving 3 innocent men in prison for decades for murders Bulger committed. Mueller, by his actions, made himself an accessory after the fact in those murders. One of those men died in prison. Had it not been for John Durham, currently working on exposing the… Read more »

Muller was there in name only. I don’t think he was ever over anything. His mind is going, anyone could see that. Hell I don’t even think he knew where he was at times. They programmed him with a couple words so he wouldn’t say anything off program

@Montana, I think that Muller thought he was going to get paid millions just for signing his signature. Mueller cleverly formed a partisan team of vicious lawyers, each with a history of statement trapping. Mueller’s mind was keen when he formed that team. The near forty million dollar cost went to these seventeen lawyers, their staffs, their paralegals, and their investigators. Each got paid more than they normally would, and lots of that money has gone and will go to the DNC. Mueller’s mind was keen then. Mueller got away with telling individual Congressmen that he wasn’t going to answer… Read more »
