The metastasizing scandal over Hillary’s Uranium One deal coupled with the revelation of the FBI’s role in the paid hit job on Trump by Hillary’s campaign is blowing up like a spectacular 4th of July fireworks show.
And it’s just getting started. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal called on FBI independent prosecutor Robert Mueller to resign his post after it became obvious that his role as FBI Director, while the uranium deal went down, was beyond the pale.
Mueller essentially presided over the whitewashing of the whole escapade.
To make matters worse, it’s now clear the FBI under Mueller’s protege James Comey was complicit in paying for Russia intel on Donald Trump even before there was ever an investigation.
It’s an inside job that stinks to high heaven and Mueller’s knee-deep in it.
Stick a fork in him.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Two mostly unrelated stories have hit over the past week that are extracting a lot of collateral damage from both the FBI and the Justice Department.
The first, broken by The Hill, was the revelation that there was widespread corruption involved in the whole Uranium One deal, that deal okayed by Hillary Clinton that gave Russia rights to most uranium mined in the US and the Clinton Foundation some tens of millions of dollars. In the end, the Justice Department did not follow all the leads that led to Bill Clinton, to the Clinton Foundation, and to Hillary Clinton. And it soft-pedaled the announcement of the indictments and final resolution. It did not communicate with Congress about the case and it locked its key witness up tight with a non-disclosure agreement that might as well have been authored by Harvey Weinstein for some starlet. The head of the FBI during nearly all of this investigation was Robert Mueller. Rod Rosenstein, now Deputy Attorney General, was the US Attorney for Maryland and oversaw both the prosecution and the Cone of Silence that was slapped on the case.
The second story is that the FBI used a dossier developed by a foreign national as grounds for FISA warrants on both Carter Page and Paul Manafort. Nothing wrong with using oppo for this so long as the FBI was able to independently corroborate the facts. According to former CIA director Mike Morrell;
“We have reports that the freelance spy who put together some of the information in the dossier was paying Russians for their information and used intermediaries. Former acting CIA director and Hillary Clinton campaign surrogate Michael Morrell said this was discrediting:
“‘Then I asked myself, why did these guys provide this information, what was their motivation? And I subsequently learned that he paid them. That the intermediaries paid the sources and the intermediaries got the money from Chris. And that kind of worries me a little bit because if you’re paying somebody, particularly former [Russian Federal Security Service] officers, they are going to tell you truth and innuendo and rumor, and they’re going to call you up and say, ‘Hey, let’s have another meeting, I have more information for you,’ because they want to get paid some more,’ Morrell said.
