Robert Mueller has finished his report.

The subject of his assigned enquiry was really difficult. It was made more difficult by sustained criticism by the president. “Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people,” Trump growled on Twitter five months ago, lap-dog media and an army of cut and paste bloggers repeated it.

Now that the report has ( apparently ) turned out well for the president, Trump has, today, said that Mueller acted honorably. I guess that gives permission for right wing media to stop trashing Mueller.

The criticism made against this cop’s cop was unfair. It was unfair because there is nothing in Mueller’s lifetime of service that indicates bias. It was unfair because he strove to do a fair and complete report. It was also unfair because he couldn’t respond to the criticism.

Thank you, Robert Mueller.

I hope that we see the report soon. I’m sure that there are things of significant interest that we don’t know yet.

  1. I’ll try and put myself into Phantom’s mindset, so here goes – Just because there was no evidence of Russian collusion doesn’t mean that there was no evidence of Russian collusion

  2. Well said Phantom.

    The report should be published in full, but given that Trump refuses to release his tax returns I wouldn’t bet on it. If it is the “full and total exhoneration” that he claims it will be difficult for him to explain its non-publication, and hiding behind others such as the Attorney General will fool no-one.

  3. Allan

    Pete is still getting his story straight in between asking all of Trump’s critics to cut open their veins.

    Can you say – do you think that Mueller did a fair investigation?

  4. Can you say – do you think that Mueller did a fair investigation?

    Not possible – the wrong country was investigated. Now, if there had been an inquiry into Israeli/jewish collusion, what would the outcome have been?

    https://www.rt.com/news/454711-trump-signs-golan-heights/

    US President Donald Trump has signed a declaration recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, seized from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War.

    In a joint press conference with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, Trump hailed the “powerful” relationship between the US and Israel, while Netanyahu called the signing “historic justice” and a “diplomatic victory.”

  5. If anyone was exonerated it was Mueller. He performed a focused and necessary investigation.

  6. He performed a focused and necessary investigation.

    There was nothing – so why was it ‘necessary’?

  7. Israel has annexed the Golan Heights with Trump’s approval. This could well be a dry run for it to annex the entire West Bank area, again with Trump’s approval. This must be what Trump meant by his peace plan.

  8. Allan – your Russian masters conspired to effect the outcome of our election, it was both appropriate and reasonable for our law enforcement to investigate the extent of that. Now go jerk off to your Putin poster.

  9. Robert Mueller seems to have done an excellent job. Good point about having to take inappropriate criticism and not being able to respond.

    When as much of the report as possible is released there will probably be much on Russian interference in our politics. It is important to note that and take whatever actions necessary to halt such Russian interference.

  10. Allan@Aberdeen,

    I’ll try and put myself into Phantom’s mindset, so here goes – Just because there was no evidence of Russian collusion doesn’t mean that there was no evidence of Russian collusion

    It is truly priceless Allan, that given what you’ve considered evidence over the years, you could actually type that with a straight face.
    Your total lack of self awareness is staggering.

  11. Mueller destroyed multiple lives of innocent people with this investigation and with the Whitey Bulger case along with several others.

    Mueller was in charge of the FBI when Obama first weaponized it. He’s no Cops cop.

    The only thing that’s going to save him from the shit storm that’s coming is the fact that he was the Special Prosecutor.

    Good Post Phantom

  12. Avenatti crashed and burned very quickly.

    Former client Stormy Daniels speaks of future revelations that she will be making, which will be interesting,

  13. “I’m sure that there are things of significant interest that we don’t know yet.”

    To be more precise, you “hope”.

    Trump shouldn’t have criticised Mueller openly but look at what he was facing, a politically motivated investigation, based on Clinton lies, pushed by the DNC for one reason only and packed with Democrat and Clinton supporting lawyers.

  14. Let me cut you off right there.

    There is zero evidence that Mueller ( a straight arrow, a registered Republican ) conducted a politically motivated investigation, or that Mueller was asked to conduct the investigation by Mr. Rosenstein ( another registered Republican ) for any political reason.

    Zero.

  15. Mueller had nothing to do with the Whitey Bulger situation.

    Don’t ask me, ask the federal judge who presided over the case where wrongfully incarcerated men were freed

    I was the federal judge who presided over a successful lawsuit brought against the government by two of those men and the families of the other two, who had died in prison. Based on the voluminous evidence submitted in the trial, and having written a 105-page decision awarding them $101.8 million, I can say without equivocation that Mr. Mueller, who worked in the United States attorney’s office in Boston from 1982 to 1988, including a brief stint as the acting head of the office, had no involvement in that case. He was never even mentioned.

    Nancy Gertner retired federal judge, lecturer at Harvard.

    Dershowitz has lost his fastball, and his reputation by aiding and abetting a Hannity / Limbaugh campaign of lies against Mueller. These slanders against Mueller are Exhibit A of disinformation and Fake News.

    Zero.

    It was all based on falsified FISA warrants that were politically motivated.

  17. The Boston Globe noted Robert Mueller’s connection with the Whitey Bulger case in an article entitled, “One Lingering Question for FBI Director Robert Mueller.” The Globe said this:

    “[Mike] Albano [former Parole Board Member who was threatened by two F.B.I. agents for considering parole for the men imprisoned for a crime they did not commit] was appalled that, later that same year, Mueller was appointed FBI director, because it was Mueller, first as an assistant US attorney then as the acting U.S. attorney in Boston, who wrote letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies. Of course, 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 put people in prison for crimes they did not commit:

    “Mueller was the head of the Criminal Division as Assistant U.S. Attorney, then as Acting U.S. Attorney. I could not find any explanation online by Mueller as to why he insisted on keeping the defendants in prison that FBI agents—in the pocket of Whitey Bulger—had framed for a murder they did not commit. Make no mistake: these were not honorable people he had incarcerated. But it was part of a pattern that eventually became quite clear that Mueller was more concerned with convicting and putting people in jail he disliked, even if they were innocent of the charges, than he was with ferreting out the truth,” Gohmert said.

  18. The judge appears to completely refute the Boston Globe article.

    What is the date of the Globe article?

  19. Phantom – Patrick is peddling a Hannity-Limbaugh tall tale which was completely refuted by the presiding Federal Judge. With his proclaimed vast and diverse reading I’m suprised he missed it.

  20. Hannity and Limbaugh are disinformation merchants who traffic in this stuff – Seth Rich, Uranium One, all that. No one should expect anything else from them.

    It’s Dershowitz’s involvement in this that surprises me. The old Dershowitz would have known better than to say something so easily disproved.

  21. ok tall tales….. once again anyone who disagrees with the Bubble Brothers is a Liar….

    Mueller is a political cop always has been. The Lawyers he brought into the special investigation were all political one was the Atty for the Clinton Foundation and the main investigator he used put 1000s of people out of work and people in jail for years that he framed and were let out with their sentences overturned.

    The Mueller investigation was part of a coup to overturn a fairly elected President and the second half of the Hillary coverup. Either Mueller was involved or your boyscout is the dumbest cop to ever have a badge.

    None of you want to face the truth.

    Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton covered up her crimes and tried to rig a Presidential election. They’ve been caught.

    The coup attempt after the election loss exposed the crimes of Obama and Clinton while not finding a damn thing on Trump.

    Over the next two years we are going to see a lot of these people prosecuted.

    Barack Obama destroyed the credibility of the Federal Government. He weaponized the IRS/FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA all for political means. In the process of doing so high level members of all those agencies committed crimes.

    It is now time to prosecute them.

  22. In other words you can’t back up your repeating the false claims by Hannity et AL about Mueller.

  23. If reports are critical of ” evil Democrats ” they are automatically believed.

    No further research is necessary.

    Mahons – there was always nothing, and whenever I asked what the prima facie evidence was, the ‘evidence’ was that people like me were asking for evidence!! So, once again…….

    Mahons, on March 25th, 2019 at 11:35 PM Said:

    If anyone was exonerated it was Mueller. He performed a focused and necessary investigation.

    given that there was nothing before and nothing after the investigation, why was the investigation necessary?

  25. I have all the research and so do all of you because I’ve posted it here for the past two years.

    This all goes back to Clinton Bribery and her commision of Espionage to hide it. They were greedy and got caught. Obama covered it up and the entire upper management of the Justice Department committed crimes to achieve the cover up.

    Then when she lost the election they had to cover their crimes and they doubled down.

    Now they need to go to jail.

    I find it both offensive and telling that what they did doesn’t anger you as it does me. They tried framing a President…… they abused the Patriot Act for political reasons to spy on American Citizens and a political candidate… those were the exact thing the FISA court was supposed to be designed to prevent, not accomodate.

    but the Bubble Brothers are just fine with that…. you ought to be ashamed.

  26. In other words, you can’t back up repeating the Hannity claim which was rebutted by the Federal Judge who presided over the case.

  27. Well if Hannity and Rush say its true it’s obvious that it’s true.

    They don’t call El Rushbo ” America’s Newsman ” for nothing.

  28. Patrick

    Whatever happens will be a “win win” for you won’t it ?

    If top Dems are prosecuted you will say that vindicates your views. If they don’t get prosecuted you will say that it is only due to political/judicial corruption and the failure to charge them vindicates your views 😉

  29. Colm my name is not Alan I’m no conspiracy freak.

    I want to see the Law applied equally, and I believe it will be.

    That’s true and ad somebody doesn’t believe in any conspiracies, I think I’m in a position to judge. Patrick, yes you are a conspiracy freak. 😀

  34. Patrick believes that Bill Clinton bombed a suspected Al Queda site to divert attention from the Lewinsky scandal.

    No one in the military or the CIA thought this, but Rush Limbaugh and Idi Amin thought it was so, and so did Patrick.

    That is the ultimate conspiracy theory, right up there with anything that Allan ever said.

  35. No that’s an opinion not a conspiracy. Only one person knows why Bill Clinton blew up an aspirin factory when a stained dress appeared on the scene and that’s Clinton himself.

    It may have been just a coincidence. You believe whatever the Clinton line is on ALL their crimes….. you believe in the vast rightwing conspiracy.

  36. I may have a totally different view than you Phantom, but to call me a conspiracy freak is a stretch.

    You view Trump as a crook yet he has never been arrested. With the standard you’re using that makes YOU a conspiracy freak.

  37. AFAIK The only public figures who said that were Idi Amin and US right wing screamers like Rush

    It the US bombed a place for no reason there would have been dissent from serious and sober voices – there was none of that.

  38. I may have a totally different view than you Phantom, but to call me a conspiracy freak is a stretch

    Guys, I’ve really no wish to become involved in this dogfight but is this now the American Right’s stock response when called out on questionable claims? ‘It’s my opinion?’ I read Patty use a similar defence recently when probed on the now infamous Puerto Rican aid video.

    What is a conspiracy theory but a singular view propagated to the gullible masses?

    In the words of American senator / ambassador / Presidential advisor Daniel Patrick Moynihan: everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts

  39. Paul McMahon,

    In the words of American senator / ambassador / Presidential advisor Daniel Patrick Moynihan: everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts

    Well said Paul. I totally agree.

    These ridiculous conspiracy theories distract us from the real evil that’s going on in the world.

  40. actually Paul yes……

    After 8yrs of Obama followed by the last two years of TDS yeah, “It’s my opinion” has to be the default answer or a 300 comment thread of left and right going back and forth and pretty much saying “you’re a Liar… No you are”.

    I put out my analysis and opinions and try to convince where I can. Then we wait and see who is right.

    I said all a long let Mueller investigate, I said repeatedly if he is found to have done something I’ll hand out the Pitchforks and Torches.

    Where is that on the otherside?

    I want the LAWS to be followed. In the arena of ideas the left loose every time, but if the rule of law is not upheld and democrat politicians or any politician is above the law we all lose.

    Trump was vindicated because he was framed. Now those behind the framing must be punished, and over the next two years they will be.

    The facts decide in the end and the facts of the past two years of me saying this whole thing was a fraud I won.

    but that’s just my opinion.

  41. Fox News was villifying Mueller last night

    Rudy Giuliani, to his everlasting discredit, said that he didn’t think that Mueller acted honorably.

  42. “The facts decide in the end and the facts of the past two years of me saying this whole thing was a fraud I won.”

    No you didn’t. There was Russian interference in the election to help Trump win. That is a fact. There were links between some in the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. That is a fact. What was in question was whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign (and its candidate) and Russia. That is what the investigation was. That it turns out that there was no collusion between the campaign and Russia is not a vindication of the idea that it was a fraud.

    Reasonable questions were asked of the Trump campaign.

  43. There was collusion, the only question is was it illegal.

    Trump openly asked the Russians to disclose Hillary’s emails. What’s that?

  44. As I said, I’ve no dog in this fight. I’d be of the opinion that Clinton bombed a suspected Al Queda site because it was a suspected Al Queda site.

    If you look around the internet you’ll see that the Clinton bombing / Lewinsky opinion has all the hallmarks of a conspiracy theory.

  45. Trump openly asked the Russians to disclose Hillary’s emails. What’s that?

    sarcasm

  46. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was true. Leaders often do something foreign policy decisive when they are in a difficult period domestically. Look at Bibi’s decision to bomb Gaza this week. It has absolutely nothing to do with the tight election in Israel. Maggie in the Falklands.

    Now in all three cases they had reasonable reason for doing so (the intelligence community said it was an Al-Qaeda site, Hamas recently chucked a rocket at Israel, and the Argentine invasion a month before hand). But it did also help distract from their domestic woes.

    Again should a man of your age and condition be rolling on the floor? You could break a hip.

    Also what in my comment is in anyway “deranged” or even funny?

  52. Now you’re all starting to sound like Ken Foley Dem skr of the hse…. “the fact that there is no evidence is why we have to investigate”…..

    The Trump collusion is right there with daddy Bush flying in a blackbird to Iran right before Reagan was elected….. you guys gotta stop drinking.

  55. “Now you’re all starting to sound like Ken Foley Dem skr of the hse…. “the fact that there is no evidence is why we have to investigate”…..”

    There was evidence. The Russian involvement in the election, and the links between certain individuals of the Trump campaign to Russia. That is evidence. So that evidence raised the question of was there a formal, illegal, link between the Trump campaign and Russia. That is what the investigation aimed to find out.

    That the investigation found no evidence of a formal, illegal, link between the Trump campaign and Russia does not mean that the decision to ask the question in the first place was illegitimate.

  56. 675 days, 30 million dollars, 2800 subpoenas, and over 500 witnesses no connection was found but you still believe it….

    That the investigation found no evidence of a formal, illegal, link between the Trump campaign and Russia does not mean that the decision to ask the question in the first place was illegitimate.

    when the evidence presented to the FISA court was fake it does…..

  57. “when the evidence presented to the FISA court was fake it does…..”

    No evidence to suggest that the evidence presented to the FISA court was fake. You keep saying it is but have offered no evidence, whatsoever, to suggest that Steele made up his dossier.

  58. “675 days, 30 million dollars, 2800 subpoenas, and over 500 witnesses no connection was found but you still believe it….”

    I don’t. Can you not read? “That the investigation found no evidence of a formal, illegal, link between the Trump campaign and Russia”. “That it turns out that there was no collusion between the campaign and Russia is not a vindication of the idea that it was a fraud.”

    Both statements accepted the fact that there is no evidence of collusion.

  59. Yeah and he “did not have sex with that woman” that was a vast rightwing conspiracy also….

    No it wasn’t. It was slick Willy being economical with the truth.

    ‘Pizzagate’ for example however, was.

  60. The Republicans condemned Clinton for trying to bomb Al Queda

    And some here are still doing that

    Funny world ain’t it

  61. Both statements accepted the fact that there is no evidence of collusion.

    good….. now you can accept the fact that the dossier was fake or not, you can accept the fact that all the FISA court evidence was fake or not, it’s up to you.

    The fact that we know the dossier was used for fisa and that Paige testified under oath that 3 pieces of the other evidence presented were from stories leaked by James Comey is evidence that the entire thing is fruit from the poisonous tree.

    Give it time. 2yrs of saying there was no there there with collusion I was proven right. I will be on this also if what evidence that is already in the public arena is continued to be backed up more and more with each release of documents…. we’ll see.

  62. ” now you can accept the fact that the dossier was fake or not, you can accept the fact that all the FISA court evidence was fake or not, it’s up to you.”

    There is no evidence to suggest that the dossier was fake. And there is no evidence to suggest that the evidence used for the FISA warrants were fake.

  64. Paul…. this is when you default to “It’s my opinion”.

    There is no evidence to suggest that the dossier was fake. And there is no evidence to suggest that the evidence used for the FISA warrants were fake.

    I posted the facts that Steele testified under oath the dossier was not verified, and Lisa Paige testified under oath that 3 other pieces of evidence were faked….. yet that’s the response I get from Seamus…..

    Well It’s my opinion and time will tell.

  65. Not verified. You need to learn what words mean. Not verified does not mean fake. It means not verified. Something that is true but not verified is still not verified. And leaked does not mean faked. Leaked means leaked. So that it came from an unverified dossier and leaked news stories does not mean it was faked.

  66. Paul…. this is when you default to “It’s my opinion”

    Or when questioned on an absolutely unverified video about Puerto Rican aid or Monica’s Missiles?

    I refer back to Moynihan’s quote Pat.

  67. Not verified disqualifies it from being used in a FISA court…… They used it and testified that it was verified.

    They falsified court documents to the court that was designed to prevent the patriot act from being misused.

    When you sign off on a FISA warrant you are testifying that the evidence is 100% accurate. Yates, Comey, McCabe, and Rosenstein signed those evidence submissions for FISA warrants. They each committed a Felony.

  68. “Not verified disqualifies it from being used in a FISA court”

    No it doesn’t. They informed the judge that a source (unnamed but Christopher Steele) had been hired by a US person (unnamed but the Clinton campaign) to conduct research regarding Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. It states that Steele had been paid to do so by that person (unnamed but the Clinton campaign). It at no point in time says that Steele’s findings had been verified. It states that “Source #1’s [Christopher Steele] reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings and the FBI assesses Source #1 to be reliable”.

    That information needs to be verified ie that Steele had been used in previous cases and had been found to be reliable. That is what needs to be verified.

  69. nope you’re wrong sorry… that’s just not how it works.

    Seamus, give it time. At some point in the next year the FISA info will be released and we will find out who is reading this situation correctly.

  70. “nope you’re wrong sorry… that’s just not how it works.”

    A Note on FISA “Verification”

    It does not mean that every tip provided by a source has been independently corroborated. Rather, “verification” refers to the process laid out in the so-called “Woods procedures,” which require Justice Department officials to verify that representations made in a submission to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court match the information in the FBI’s investigative files. If the application relies upon a source for some claim, does the documentation in the case file support that the source actually said what the application presents the source as saying? In this case, then, “verification” would not mean the FBI had necessarily tracked down Steele’s own sources to corroborate his reporting. Rather, it would require that someone “verify” that when the application summarized what Steele had told the FBI, it did so accurately.

  71. Take off the ‘drunk’ adjective Pat and you could be describing your President?

  72. Trump supposedly has never had a drink.

    He might have been far more human if he had a jar of Guinness or a glass of chianti once in a while.

    Moynihan was a fat womanizing drunk…..

    Churchill and General Grant were rumored to have had whiskey a time or two. Didn’t hurt their effectiveness that much.

    Better a drunk Churchill than a sober Trumpy.

  73. Moynihan, who died in 2003, famously said that people are entitled to their own opinions but not to their own facts. He also liked to quote the maxim that “it’s not ignorance that hurts so much as knowing all those things that ain’t so.” Which can only make you wonder how much he, as that rare commingling of politician and public intellectual, would be wincing at the categorical claims coming from Congress and the White House nowadays.

    Moynihan distinguished himself because he derived his policy positions from research, rather than by cherry-picking statistics to justify those policies. That’s how he propelled himself to the forefront of issues like auto safety and climate change, as well as the question of the durability of the Soviet Union. He championed equal rights and recognition for women, including his wife, Liz, whom he valued as an equal partner in a male dominated town.

    Appalled by a British official who minimized the late-1960s famine in Biafra by noting that the malnutrition rate was only five or 10 percentage points above normal, Moynihan invoked the horrific 19th-century famine in Ireland and wrote: “I really did feel I was talking to Sir Charles Trevelyan 122 years ago, assuming all was well in Connaught, that the new potato crop was coming along nicely, and that in any event the Irish always were a bit disorganized.”

    John Brennan has a lot to answer for—going before the American public for months, cloaked with CIA authority and openly suggesting he’s got secret info, and repeatedly turning in performances like this.

    Sorry that doesn’t flush….. The FBI/DOJ/WH were informed that by Ohr that the information in the Dossier was unverifiable, and the source submitter had been fired as a source for the Justice Dept due to his lack of credibility. All testified about under oath in front of Congress by Ohr.

    So your saying evidence is verified even when the administration was told it was not verifiable and the source COULD NOT BE TRUSTED.

    It was fake Seamus from a discredited source at least that was what Ohr told The FBI/DOJ/WH, and testified so under oath…..

    I’m glad you and “your source” will never sit on a Jury on any case I’m involved in.

  76. “So your saying evidence is verified even when the administration was told it was not verifiable and the source COULD NOT BE TRUSTED.”

    Because that is not what they are being asked to verify. They are not being asked to verify Steele’s information about Trump. They are being asked to verify the FBI’s information about Steele. That is what the verification aspect of the FISA warrant requires.

  77. I’m sure that there are things of significant interest that we don’t know yet.

    The Mueller probe may not be over just yet. Judge Andrew Napolitano said there positively “some” proof of Trump-Russia conspiracy and obstruction of justice in the 700 page report.

    “In the 700 page summary of the 2 million pages of raw evidence there is undoubtedly some evidence of a conspiracy and some evidence of obstruction of justice,” he told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto Opens a New Window. . “Just not enough evidence.”

    An interesting comment from a perhaps unexpected source.

    We don’t know what we don’t know.

    Reports of exoneration may be greatly exaggerated.

  78. They are being asked to verify the FBI’s information about Steele. That is what the verification aspect of the FISA warrant requires.

    Before they went to the very first FISA judge Steele had been fired as an unreliable source and a leaker Seamus….. so your telling me what? What did they verify?

    That he had been fired….?

    They falsified evidence.

    I see Phantom is still grasping lol
