GOHMERT: ‘He lacks the judgment and credibility to lead the prosecution of anyone…’
(John Wynne, Liberty Headlines) Special Counsel Robert Mueller has a track record of ill repute, alleges a scathing 48-page report written by Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert.
The report, “Robert Mueller: Unmasked” is a brutal takedown of Mueller’s unsavory professional career and should leave no doubt that he is the last person who should be leading the investigation of the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.
“Robert Mueller has a long and sordid history of illicitly targeting innocent people that is a stain upon the legacy of American jurisprudence,” Gohmert, a Republican, begins in his report. “He lacks the judgment and credibility to lead the prosecution of anyone.”
Based on his findings, the congressman believes that Mueller is someone who targets individuals for prosecution and will resort to any measure to bring them down.
And unlike some Republicans who tell the media that Mueller’s reputation is above reproach, Gohmert believes the exact opposite, saying Republicans who defend Mueller actually want Trump removed from office, or are ignorant of Mueller’s professional history.
The report starts with a detailed history of Mueller’s notorious handling of the Whitey Bulger case, a mobster whom the FBI protected.
Gohmert alleges that instead of going after Bulger, Mueller framed innocent people while leaking information to the media to disparage his targets.
“Anyone imprisoned has to have committed a specific crime for which they are found guilty,” Gohmert writes. “Not in Mueller’s world. He has the reverse list of Santa Claus; and if you are on his list, you get punished even if you are framed.”
“He never apologizes when the truth is learned, no matter how wrong or potentially criminal or malicious the prosecution was. In his book, you deserve what you get even if you did not commit the crime for which he helped put you away.”
Gohmert then proceeds to the case of Congressman Curt Weldon, who alleged the FBI had prior knowledge about 9/11 and could have prevented the attacks.
Mueller, then FBI Director, did not admit the FBI made errors or refute the accusations.
Instead, the FBI raided the home of Weldon’s daughter weeks before Election Day.
With rumors abuzz that Weldon too was under investigation, the congressman lost re-election.
The raid destroyed Weldon’s political career … and nothing ever came of it.
“The early morning raid by Mueller’s FBI with all the media outside, obviously alerted by the FBI, had achieved its goal of colluding to abuse the federal justice system to silence Curt Weldon by ending his political career,” Gohmert concludes.
“People say those kinds of things just don’t happen in America. They certainly seemed to when Mueller was in charge of the FBI and they certainly seem to while he is Special Counsel, as well.”
The report speculates that Mueller was placed in charge of the Russian collusion investigation because he could be relied on to use “extra-legal actions” to take out the political enemies of the Deep State.
In addition, Gohmert notes that President Barack Obama “begged” Mueller to stay on as FBI Director for two more years than the 10-year term allowed by the law … a deal that Congress approved.
The congressman highlights many more troubling incidents concerning Mueller, including even more framing of political opponents and changing hiring practices at the FBI to create a bureaucracy packed with yes-men who could be more easily controlled.
Even Mueller’s acceptance of the Special Counsel position was unethical, Gohmert states, because he had numerous conflicts of interests, and even the appearance of a conflict of interest in such a position is disallowed by the law.
Gohmert notes that Mueller’s successor as FBI Director, James Comey, was a close friend and confidante of Mueller.
Comey, of course, was fired by President Trump.
And that’s not all.
Gohmert goes on to describe Mueller’s role with then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein in the investigation of Russia’s effort to obtain uranium from the United States.
“Rosenstein and Mueller’s failure to warn against or stop the sale reeks of its own form of collusion, cooperation, or capitulation in what some consider a treasonous sale,” Gohmert writes.
He further speculates that the Russian collusion investigation itself may be an attempt by Mueller and Rosenstein to protect themselves.
In addition, Gohmert describes how Mueller hired “extremely biased attorneys” who worked tirelessly to prevent President Trump from being elected to serve on the investigation.
The bottom line: Robert Mueller should never have been appointed Special Counsel, and has to go.
“If you want answers, and you CAN handle the truth, join me in demanding those answers from ‘Special Counsel’ Robert Mueller, along with his resignation,” the report concludes. “If he were to resign, it could well be the only truly moral, ethical, and decent action Mueller has undertaken in this entire investigation.”
