Who is Robert Mueller?

Who is Robert Mueller?

Unlike Cadet Bone Spurs, Mueller served in Viet Nam in the 3rd Marine Division. He received A Bronze Star with a V for rescuing a wounded Marine under fire in 1968. Later he was wounded in action and then returned to combat duty. He was decorated twice with the Navy and Marine Corp Commendation Medal with a V.

He was US Attorney for Northern California, and then Asst. US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. Mueller served as the senior litigator in the homicide section of the DC US Attorney’s Office.

He was appointed as Deputy Attorney General of the United States by President George W Bush in 2001, and later that year, was appointed by Bush as Director of the FBI. Mueller served as FBI Director for 12 years.

In 2016, Mueller was awarded the Thayer Award, which is given to one person per year by the US Military Academy at West Point.

In 2017, Mueller was awarded the Baker Award for excellence in the intelligence and national security activities of the United States government by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance.

People don’t generally plead guilty to federal felonies if they are innocent of all charges. And they certainly do not plead and then cooperate with investigators if they in fact, have no knowledge or participation in any alleged illegal activities. They generally plead to one charge and cooperate with investigators in order to avoid more and greater and even more serious charges.

Rick Gates: Conspiracy and making false statements
Michael Flynn: Making false statements
George Papadopoulos: Making false statements
Richard Pinedo: Identity theft
Alex van der Zwaan: Making false statements

Manafort is facing 23 charges that we know of, 5 from the Washington DC Grand Jury and 18 from the Alexandria, Virginia Grand Jury

18 Russian Nationals and three Russian companies have been charged with federal crimes by the DC Grand Jury so far.

In all his career there’s never been any allegation of either favoritism, nor insanity, nor stupidity, nor political bias against Mueller.

Is Julian Assange openly working with Russia?

I saw an allegation today that “Assange is openly working with Russia.”

How is Assange openly working with Russia? It isn’t open if it is happening. And how is he going to manage a covert and undetectable channel of communications when GCHQ is on him like flies on a shitwagon?

The FBI or *cough* US Homeland Security I could see letting something get by them. If you read the nytimes article today about the alleged DNC email hacks you can see FBI knew the server was compromised, talked to a low level contractor on the phone who thought they were just trolls and did pretty much nothing. I’ll bet dollars to donuts it was an ip based phone system using SIP and the dumbass FBI thought that was a good enough and secure way to convey this urgent information when all they had to do was walk a half a mile.

But GCHQ I don’t expect to see that. I don’t see how Assange has a covert channel of communications. Now perhaps they just let him go and watch. But also this ignores the dead drop system by which documents are submitted and vetted and pre-distributed by wikileaks. It is pretty clever and would really want an inside person to break it. Ideally a bunch of inside people because stuff gets split up among multiple people until enough folks have it to form a deadman if the material for publication is intercepted. Point being nobody and certainly not Assange ever sees, talks to, or meets or even exchanges email with the leaker. It is done by good old anonymous physical mail and dead drops. And nothing of that is going to go to Assange in his modern day Elba. Classic tradecraft.

It is true that Assange appeared a number of times on RT. But I had the impression there was little love lost there. That doesn’t prove that Russia was directly sending material to Assange. I don’t see how they could maintain a covert channel of communications in Assange’s current situation and that just is not how Wikileaks works.

It is kind of pathetic that wikileaks tradecraft is so much better than the counterintelligence at FBI. What the hell are we paying for?
