No Crimes? They’ll ‘Make Some’: Attorney Warns Mueller Probe About ‘Reversing Results of 2016 Election’
Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Sidney Powell believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey are guilty of prosecutorial improprieties.
While discussing former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara’s motive behind prosecuting millionaire Las Vegas gambler Billy Walters, Powell says he, akin to, Comey and Mueller, convict people for sport.
They will make sure “whatever needs to be done to get that conviction,” gets done, says Powell.
Powell told reporter Jerome Corsi:
“Because Billy Walters was a famous and hugely successful sports gambler,” Powell answered. “Because he was a multi-million-dollar investor who owned a $17 million-dollar private jet. Because Preet Bharara had suffered a series of appeals court set-backs and he valued bagging Billy Walters so he could have a new trophy to put on his wall.”[…]“Many top federal law enforcement officials including James Comey – and it appears Robert Mueller as well – are willing to engage in illegal acts to win convictions,” she stressed. “They convince themselves or believe that someone is guilty of something, and then the end of obtaining any kind of conviction justifies whatever needs to be done to get that conviction.”
She continued: “Bharara, Comey, and Mueller – all three are far too political and have great powers of rationalization. Some have called them ‘Dirty Cops.’”
In an op-ed for The Hill, Powell warns Mueller’s choice in team members suggest the Special Counsel is motivated by glory, rather than justice. Even more troubling Mueller’s “long-time friend and former counsel,” Andrew Weissmann, a key member of Mueller’s team, may be seeking to nullify the results of the 2016 presidential election.
What was supposed to have been a search for Russia’s cyberspace intrusions into our electoral politics has morphed into a malevolent mission targeting friends, family and colleagues of the president. The Mueller investigation has become an all-out assault to find crimes to pin on them — and it won’t matter if there are no crimes to be found. This team can make some.[…]
Yet Mueller tapped a different sort of prosecutor to lead his investigation — his long-time friend and former counsel, Andrew Weissmann. He is not just a “tough” prosecutor. Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted “victories” for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law.[…]
Manafort, a Trump associate, is simply a small step in Weissmann’s quest to impugn this presidency or to reverse the results of the 2016 election. Never mind that months of investigation by multiple entities have produced no evidence of “collusion.” Mueller’s rare, predawn raid of Manafort’s home — a fearsome treat usually reserved for mobsters and drug dealers — is textbook Weissmann terrorism. And of course, the details were leaked — another illegal tactic.
Despite what the mainstream media reports, Mueller is far from possessing a clean record.
Below is just a sample of the controversies and scandals involving Mueller when he was FBI Director between 2001-2013.
Major Scandals During Mueller’s FBI Years:
As the nation’s top cop, then-FBI Director Mueller had massive resources to investigate crimes, as well as the ability to arrest suspects and recommend prosecution of the offenders. The following is an abbreviated list of major scandals and likely crimes that Mueller did not meaningfully investigate as FBI Director—no arrests, no consequences:
Falsification of Iraq War intelligence (2003): information providing the sole justification for a war that caused the death and dismemberment of thousands of American soldiers was later found to be fabricated, false, or overstated at the time it was presented to the public. Mueller not only failed to investigate and arrest any of the perpetrators of this deception—he actively participated in the plot:
Vanishing Currency (2003): the US sent $12,000,000,000 in $100 bills to the Iraq War combat theater, which mostly went unaccounted for once it entered the country
NSA Warrantless Surveillance (2001-2013): illegal collection of domestic phone records and internet communications that were sent or received by US citizens, in violation of Fourth Amendment protections against warrantless search and seizure, followed by potential perjury committed by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who denied the practices under oath; the 2013 Snowden revelations proved that the 2004 story about Comey and Mueller stopping illegal surveillance practices meant absolutely nothing in reality
