Which was the point of my off topic note at the end. The general public should have an unfiltered look at these SC's and be allowed to double check their work without the bias of media.



Good point, I do agree.

They should also be vetted ahead of time to avoid
appointing one that has conflicts of interest.

That isnt how it is supposed to work.


I think it's fair to say that just about EVERYTHING they are doing up there in the Capitol is not how it's supposed to work.

This is happening now. I am watching this, Jim Jordan is on the
floor and this is explosive stuff.

I'll update if possible....



Good...

Huber has been on the job since last November and all we know so far is that he is NOT investigating the FISA issue...Just a week or two ago he was charged by Sessions to take a look at it...

This committee has been on Sessions for months and months to appoint a special prosecutor over the FISA deal and he has ignored them...

The DOJ and FBI have proven they are unwilling to investigate themselves or the Democrat Party...Sandbagging by Sessions shows that he too is unwilling to get involved...We have no idea how wide and deep this corruption goes...Our only hope is a special prosecutor to clean out this swamp...

This is calling for a 2nd Special Counsel to investigate
the FISA warrant ....




Maybe they should consult with Cohen and Hannity to be sure it will be carried out in an unbiased fashion first.

Why the hell does he have the option, or think he has the option?? Congress has asked for it, Congrress is (supposed to be) We the People, which is the foundation of their power, so he needs to give them what they are asking. This is infuriating!

Here's a pretty good look at Mueller and it's not even exhaustive:

Mueller's History of Cover-Ups


Mueller’s talents were noticed early in his career at the Justice Department. As a U.S. Attorney in Boston during the mid-80s, he helped falsely convict four men for murders they didn’t commit in order to protect a powerful FBI informant—mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.” According to the Boston Globe, “Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset.”

Mueller was then appointed as chief investigator of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 in Scotland. The account Mueller produced was a flimsy story that accused a Libyan named Megrahi of coordinating placement of a suitcase bomb that allegedly traveled unaccompanied through several airports to find its way to the doomed flight. Despite Mueller’s persistent defense of this unbelievable tale, Megrahi was released from prison in 2009 and died three years later in Libya.

With the Pan Am 103 case, Mueller was covering up facts related to some of the of victims of the bombing—a group of U.S. intelligence specialists led by Major Charles McKee of the Defense Intelligence Agency. McKee had gone to Beirut to find and rescue hostages and, while there, learned about CIA involvement in a drug smuggling operation run through an agency project called COREA. As TIME magazine reported, the likely explanation for the bombing, supported by independent intelligence experts, was that U.S. operatives “targeted Flight 103 in order to kill the hostage-rescue team.” This would prevent disclosure of what McKee’s team had learned. That theory was also supported by the fact that the CIA showed up immediately at the scene of the crash, took McKee’s briefcase, and returned it empty.

Mueller’s diversions led to his leadership of the Criminal Division at the U.S. Department of Justice, putting him in charge of investigations regarding BCCI. When Mueller started in that role, members of Congress and the media were already critical of the government’s approach to the BCCI affair. Mueller came into the picture telling the Washington Post that there was an “appearance of, one, foot-dragging; two, perhaps a cover-up.” Later he denied the cover-up claim and the suggestion that the CIA may have collaborated with BCCI operatives.

But again, Mueller was simply brought in to accomplish the cover-up. The facts were that BCCI was used by the CIA to operate outside of the rule of law through funding of terrorists and other criminal operatives. The bank network was at the root of some of the greatest crimes against the public in the last 50 years, including the Savings & Loan scandal, the Iran-Contra affair, and the creation of the al-Qaeda terrorist network.

Mueller was instrumental in obstructing the BCCI investigation led by Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. During this time, Justice Department prosecutors were instructed not to cooperate with Morgenthau. Describing Mueller’s obstruction of Morgenthau, the Wall Street Journal reported that, “documents were withheld, and attempts were made to block other federal agencies from cooperating.”

Describing Mueller’s role in the BCCI cover-up more clearly, reporter Chris Floyd wrote:

“When a few prosecutors finally began targeting BCCI’s operations in the late Eighties, President George Herbert Walker Bush boldly moved in with a federal probe directed by Justice Department investigator Robert Mueller. The U.S. Senate later found that the probe had been unaccountably ‘botched’–witnesses went missing, CIA records got ‘lost,’… Lower-ranking prosecutors told of heavy pressure from on high to ‘lay off.’ Most of the big BCCI players went unpunished or, like [Khalib bin] Mahfouz, got off with wrist-slap fines and sanctions. Mueller, of course, wound up as head of the FBI, appointed to the post in July 2001–by George W. Bush.”


It would make the basis for a great thread if anyone wanted to run with it.

Officials at the FBI have withheld the memos from Congress and allowed tightly limited access to redacted versions. They claim the memos are classified because the contents include conversations between the president and the FBI director.

So then if the fbi is now claiming the memos are classified why is comey and his pal he gave the memos to walking around free? Is it not a crime to distribute classified info to civillians?

Not that I am aware of yet. I think there
would need to be more republicans involved
in the process.

As far as I am aware, Congress can appoint
a special counsel, yet I do not know the
threshold of votes it would require.
