The best laid plans of mice and …… rats. The Democrats are out for blood and the Republicans are out to lunch. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert S. Mueller III, a former F.B.I. director, as special counsel on Wednesday to oversee the bogus investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.
As early as December 2015 Hillary Clinton campaign head John Podesta discussed Trump’s “bromance with Putin.” Podesta should be deposed first before he can get his story straight with the people who should have the most to worry about: Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, and Bill Clinton.

According to NBC news, one senior FBI official has said that leakers are killing our investigation. And that’s where the investigation should go. Unmasking the leaks.
Despite the overwhelming number of scandals under President Obama – Hillary email scandal, Benghazi, IRS targeting, Hillary’s uranium deals with Russia, Obama never appointed a special counsel And here we have a special counsel chasing chimeras – there is no crime. Just like the Dems did to President Bush with special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. No crime there either.
While many express confidence in ex-FBI chief Mueller, the FBI under Meuller colluded with Obama’s IRS/DOJ to try to jail Obama’s political opponents.
“Given Obama gang’s years long abuses of FBI counterintelligence powers, Mueller will now be investigating himself.” – Thomas Fitton of Judicial Watch
Russian President Vladimir Putin says his country is willing to give the US records of President Trump’s talks with Foreign Minister Lavrov.
President Trump is right when he tweeted: “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”
THE SPECIAL COUNSEL MISTAKE
ROSENSTEIN BENDS TO POLITICAL PRESSURE, AND HERE WE GO AGAIN.
Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2017 7:28 p.m. ET
Democrats and their media allies finally got their man. After weeks of political pressure, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein blinked late Wednesday and announced that he has named a special counsel to investigate Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election. These expeditions rarely end well for anyone, and Democrats are hoping this one will bedevil the Trump Administration for the next four years.
“My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted,” said Mr. Rosenstein, which is nice but irrelevant. With Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused from the Russia probe, Mr. Rosenstein appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller III, who will now have unlimited time and resources to investigate more or less anything and anyone he wants.
While the decision will provide some short-term political relief, not least for Mr. Rosenstein, it also opens up years of political risk to the Trump Administration with no guarantee that the public will end up with any better understanding of what really happened.
The problem with special counsels, as we’ve learned time and again, is that they are by definition all but politically unaccountable. While technically Mr. Rosenstein could fire Mr. Mueller if he goes too far, the manner of his appointment and the subject he’s investigating make him de facto untouchable even if he becomes an abusive Javert like Patrick Fitzgerald during the George W. Bush Administration.
What the country really needs is a full accounting of how the Russians tried to influence the election and whether any Americans assisted them. That is fundamentally a counterintelligence investigation, but Mr. Mueller will be under pressure to bring criminal indictments of some kind to justify his existence. He’ll also no doubt bring on young attorneys who will savor the opportunity to make their reputation on such a high-profile investigation.
Mr. Mueller has experience in counterintelligence and at 72 years old has nothing to prove. But he is also a long-time Washington player close to the FBI whose director was recently fired, and he is highly attuned to the political winds. As they say in Washington, lawyer up.
