At a 2018 university graduation, eight former Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSAs) and FBI agents (Formers) celebrated with their various family graduates. They also gathered to revive friendships and relive past professional experiences. However, they all bemoaned present-day Department of Justice (DOJ) actions and questioned the integrity of present-day senior DOJ attorneys and FBI agents.
These Formers were Cold-War warriors, terrorist hunters, Mafia prosecutors, and just plain crime fighters. Integrity was their code and that of all their fellow lawyers and agents.
They are not impressed by the band of brigands Special Counsel Robert Mueller has recruited.
The Formers are appalled by the group of flawed and ethically-challenged lawyers and agents Mueller has gathered to investigate alleged “collusion” between the Trump election campaign and Russia. They question Mueller’s claim to end his investigation by September 2018.
The consensus of these Formers is that Mueller was chosen as Special Counsel by Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Ron Rosenstein because of a close personal and professional friendship. Rosenstein is in such a position because Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian collusion investigation.
The Formers noted Mueller was appointed the day after his interview to be FBI Director, again. The two old friends, Mueller and Rosenstein, knew the interview at the White House did not go well. Appointment of Mueller as Special Counsel served several purposes, Mueller was able to save face, Rosenstein controls and supervises the investigation, and it impairs Trump’s legislative agenda.
Strangely, Rosenstein authored the letter firing Comey as FBI director because Comey had usurped DOJ‘s decision-making jurisdiction in the Hillary Clinton investigation.
The Formers agreed that the credible evidence was substantial that Rosenstein, Mueller, and the Mueller “team” were all interrelated and friends over the past years. The Formers knew from decades of experience there is a large number of anti-Trumpers within the Department of Justice — Obama carryovers.
Even so, Mueller picked attorneys who had a provable bias and favor for Democrats — working for Democrats and contributing to Clinton or Obama or Democrats. Many of the Mueller lawyers had political and professional problems that reflected upon their objectivity and competency.
A question surfaces, why has Mueller failed to “interview” the Cambridge professor — the FBI puppet master of the Trump campaign wannabees like — Carter Page, George Papadopolous, and others?
Mueller himself had professional problems as acting U.S. Attorney in Boston in 1986-87. The newsmedia gave Mueller passes on his past prosecutorial foibles when he was appointed Director of the FBI by President Obama.
Andrew Weissmann, now Mueller’s deputy, was his counsel at the FBI. Weissmann is an attorney with a flawed professional career. He was rebuked by a U.S. District Judge. He even had his Arthur Andersen convictions reversed by the U. S. Supreme Court, 9-0.
Weissmann’s conviction of Enron persons was overturned by the 5th U. S. Court of Appeals.
Weissmann had a soiled reputation when Mueller hired him.
Mueller’s choice of Peter Strzok to be the lead investigation FBI agent was short-lived as was his choice of agent/lawyer Lisa Page short-lived — both documented Trump-haters.
Mueller team FBI agent Brock W. Domin has only been an FBI agent since 2015. Hardly a seasoned and experienced investigator. Prior to the FBI, Domin worked in Hollywood for The Weinstein Company — the infamous Harvey Weinstein’s company.
Domin signed an affidavit in the Manafort case (U.S. v. Paul Manafort, U.S.D.C, D.C., Crim. No. 17-201-1 (ABJ)). This affidavit asserts no actual personal knowledge of any collusion by Trump campaign with Russia, merely that agent Domin cites exhibits of apparent little consequence to prove something of no import.
As ex-Federal prosecutors would say, a clogging pleading. Also, it is an indication Mueller has no credible “collusion” nor obstruction evidence.
The rest of the Mueller FBI team appears to be a hodge-podge of agents of uncertain expertise and experience. Their conduct, as noted by the Formers, is contrary to the previous impeccable FBI conduct.
The Formers also discussed how politics permeated the DOJ and the federal government during the Obama years. The present intertwining of Rod Rosenstein, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Samantha Power, Loretta Lynch, John Kerry, Susan Rice, Leslie Caldwell, Kathryn Ruemmler, Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, David Archey, Brock Domin, Andrew McCabe, Terry McAuliffe, and others out “to get Trump” is part of the deep ideological cabal that is Washington.
This cabal is a web of interlocking actions, supports, favors, appointments, ideologies, hatreds, and politics that bind these named persons and others determined to negate the vote of American people and denigrate America. Several of the Formers suggested also intertwined is the agent-provocateur — George Soros.
The Formers agreed the vast majority of DOJ employees of all ranks, political views, and beliefs disavow the present actions of the Obama people and Trump-haters.
