Mueller’s hunt to make a connection between Russia and the Trump campaign has proven futile. Now, even though he has failed to bring up a single collision related charge, he expands his hunt. So far, Mueller’s endless probe has wasted millions of dollars in federal funds.
According to Bloomberg, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is tapping additional Justice Department resources for help with new legal battles as his year-old investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 election continues to expand.
As Mueller pursues his probe, he’s making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents — a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said.
Handoff a failing and seemingly endless case? That sounds like the easy way out- or a surefire of avoiding ‘calling it quits’ and excepting the responsibility of not being able to produce results.
Thanks to his open mandate, Mueller, and his team, have been able to follow endless and fruitless leads. The open-ended mandate was gifted to him by then Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, to allow Mueller to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise indirectly from the investigation.”
The origins of the Mueller probe began with an Obama administration intelligence community assessment that alleged the Russian government pursued a sophisticated influence operations campaign to throw the election to Donald Trump. However, countless Russia experts and former government officials have now come to contest the assessment, arguing that Russia’s goal was instead to sow discord.
If Russia’s primary objective was to sow discord, the Mueller probe itself appears to be perfectly serving Russia’s goal. Mueller has essentially become the fourth branch of the government. His prosecutorial campaign and the endless expansion of his mandate and unchecked powers are egged on and protected by the Left.
Mueller’s staff currently includes 17 prosecutors, some of whom are overt partisans who have shown hostility toward the sitting U.S. president. Several prosecutors with clear biases have remained on Mueller’s team, even after it was disclosed that they showed a clear preference for Hillary Clinton…
