Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to oversee the investigation into Russia influence in the 2016 U.S. election, who’s now looking at President Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice charges, is leaking information to the Washington Post.
How else to describe a recent story that ran in the Post that was filled with information only Mueller would know?
Look at this, from the blog Lame Cherry:
“[From the Post}: ‘The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.
“‘The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.’
“The above is information which would only be known by Mueller’s investigators and Mueller himself. The details in exactly who Mueller is interrogating and that the investigation has now due to James Comey’s influence expanded to, investigating the President.
No one would know those details except Mueller’s staff.
“The Post detailed that 5 people briefed on the requests in Mueller’s group and LEAKING AGAIN to the press in a criminal investigation.
“That literally means Robert Mueller has 5 criminals working for him, who he personally chose, which speaks to Mueller’s lack of character as the chronic leaker James Comey is Mueller’s protege.”
Here’s the pertinent portion of the Post story:
“Five people briefed on the requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers’s recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week.”
Is Mueller tied to criminal leakers?
Either that, or he is himself one of the “anonymous sources.”
This seems just the latest in a long-running witch hunt to take President Donald Trump down from his White House perch. First, James Comey leaking information — now Mueller’s team.
An investigation of the investigators seems warranted at this point.
