A very good point:


Tomorrow the tax return is due . . . I’ll be interested to see if @PwC signs off on it as a charity. If so, it will undoubtedly mark the beginning of end for the firm.

Sessions with Revealing Answer

 

AG Sessions says he can not answer yes or no as to whether or not he’s recused from or because it would reveal the existence or non-existence of investigations.

 

Sessions’ answer, or non-answer, really, fits with my theory.

This is what I wrote on October 4th in the comments section:

 I surmise that Sessions is trying to keep the investigational matters as in- (White) house as possible because it’s too likely to be leaked, screwed-up, and/or thwarted by the Congress, many of whom are the Swamp.

SAME HERE: 

SESSION’S ANSWER FITS WITH MUELLER WORKING for TRUMP 100%,

as A WAY to RESTORE The PUBLICS CONFIDENCE

in SEVERAL GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS

AND AS A MEANS of THE ACTUAL RESTORATION

of THOSE GOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTIONS, THEMSELVES. 

TREY GOWDY’S QUESTION & SESSION’S RESPONCE:

“You Work for

a BLINDFOLDED WOMAN HOLDING A SET of SCALES,…

HOW DO YOU RESTORE PEOPLE’S TRUST…?”

From: https://tttthreads.com/thread/926770966226595840 / https://twitter.com/drawandstrike

This Video WILL START & STOP at ‘PART 1’,

FOLLOWING THE TEXT, BELOW, POINTS 1 TO 35:

1) This started either before Trump announced his run for President, or soon thereafter. Someone who knew what happened told him.

 

 
2) SOMEONE in the IC, likely military intel, sat Trump down & laid out the entire#UraniumOne bribery scheme.
 
 
3) How all across the breadth of the Obama Administration people in high offices took massive bribes to facilitate sale of uranium to Russia
 
 
4) It involved so many people, it compromised so many agencies, the people who did it counted on it never being exposed or prosecuted.
 
 
5) The lengths to which they corrupted our government offices to enrich themselves by selling out our country virtually ENSURED they’d walk.
 
 
6) People knew but nobody could talk, the people involved in the scheme were at the HIGHEST levels of the American government.
 
 
7) So patriots in our gov’t had their hands tied.
There was nothing they could do to stop the sale.
 
 
8) Even after some of the dirty facts behind #UraniumOne became known in 2015, it was easily buried, ignored, passed by.
 
 

9) Somebody took a chance on Trump.

They sat him down, walked him through what happened.

 

Ponder the impossible task being revealed.

 
 
10) Even if he WINS the election, he’d be taking over a gov’t that had been corrupted & compromised by the previous administration to a
 
 

11) degree that was almost unfathomable.

HOW do you go about restoring the US gov’t to what it should be,

instead of what it’s become?

 
 

12) And Trump and his advisors came up with a plan.

A brilliant plan. An intelligence operation based on DECEPTION.

 
 
13) It started during the primaries when Trump began taking every opportunity he could to brag about what GOOD FRIENDS he’d be with Putin.
 
 
14) Trump literally could not seem to SHUT UP about how awesomely AWESOME his relationship with Putin was gonna be.
 
 
15) It became a running joke, a campaign feature, engendering much hand-wringing & concern among Never Trumpers, including me at the time.
 
 
16) WHY does Trump keep going out of his way to incessantly BRAG about the sweet, sweet deals he & Putin are gonna do together? 🤔
 
 
17) But go back and look. During the primaries, during the general election campaign, what happened EVERY TIME Trump did this Putin act?
 
 
18) He *literally* trolled all the people who took dirty Russian $ to compromise our national security into ATTACKING HIM FOR IT.
 
 
19) And all HE was doing was TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING HE HADN’T DONE YET and would NEVER really do.
 
 
20) Literally every single time Trump talked about his good friend Vladimir, Hillary ‘reminded’ him Putin is…NOT our ally!
 
 
21) Obama condescendingly chided Trump for his friendly talk about Putin. Holder was aghast, Lynch was stunned! etc.
 
 
22) They fell right into his trap. He TALKED about doing deals with a guy ALL THESE TRAITORS TOOK BRIBES FROM TO SELL URANIUM TO.
 
 
23) He’s talking about hypothetical deals with Russia & people who took massive Russian bribes on the U1 deal rushed to ATTACK HIM for it.
 
 

24) What possible EXCUSE are they going to have when the truth comes out?

They’re not going to have one. He made SURE of that.

 
 

25) Everything Trump does is calculated for effect.

So now you know why he showed all that ‘Putin-Love’ during the campaign.

 
 
26) The traitors had no idea what he was really doing & rushed to attack him for merely TALKING about doing deals with Russia.
 
 

27) Then Trump won the election. He and Sessions went to work.

Now here’s something people overlook or don’t understand.

Pay attention

 
 
28) All this stuff about #UraniumOne we’re now just finding out?
Trump & Sessions knew about ALL OF THIS before they were sworn in.
 
 
29) Part of the intelligence operation Trump & Co. are running is you never show what you know, you keep your enemy in the dark.
 
 

30) Trump & Sessions knew about ALL the details of #UraniumOne BEFORE the election.

Who got how much, from whom, all of it.

 
 
31) How much uranium was being shipped to Moscow, who facilitated that shipping, they already KNOW all of this.
 
 
32) They just haven’t talked about until now. They PRETEND they are just now becoming aware of some of this stuff.
 
 
33) There was NO WAY they were going to come into office in January & tip all these people off “Yeah hey we’re going after #UraniumOne!”
 
34) Trump & Sessions know what happened with #UraniumOne. All the dark, dirty details. START with that premise, replay the last 9 months.
 

 

35) You need to start an investigation where somebody deep dives into#UraniumOne BUT you can’t let anybody outside KNOW that.

CORRUPTION of The UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

PART 2.

This Video WILL START & STOP at ‘PART 2’,

FOLLOWING THE TEXT, BELOW, POINTS 36 TO 64:

 36) So here’s where the second part of the intelligence operation begins. 

You convince people its TRUMP & HIS TEAM being investigated.
 
 
37) All the traitors who facilitated the #UraniumOne deal were on high alert after the transfer of power. Will they be sniffed out?
 
 
38) Well not to worry. Almost IMMEDIATELY the new President & his team end up being embroiled in a very public scandal.
 
 
39) Trump asks Comey to back off of Flynn, then fires Comey, who leaks memos to the NYT’s & DEMANDS appointment of a Special Counsel.
 
 
40) With a President who bragged about doing deals with Russia, an advisor caught on the phone with the Russian ambassador…..
40a)…and who briefly for 3 months hired a guy known to be 1 of the SLIMIEST and DIRTIEST Russian-connected people in DC as his manager.
 
 
40b) [of course, now we know after the election it was actually JARED KUSHNER running the campaign behind the scenes]
 
 

40c) while Kelly Anne Conway was handling the public PR & media chores.

Manafort was brought in as ANOTHER reason to investigate Trump!

 
 
41) …everybody AGREES: yeah, great idea! Let’s appoint a special counsel to investigate RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE in our election! So be it.
 
 
42) Jeff Sessions then recuses himself from the Russian investigation. [But remember: HE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ANYWAY]
 
 
43) Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein then appoints Bob Mueller & tasks him with investigation Russian interference in the 2016 election.
 
 

44) MUELLER AND ROSENSTEIN *both* already know that Trump & Sessions BOTH know all the details of #UraniumOne.

Got that? 

 
45) Everybody involved in this ALREADY KNOWS. Everybody was in on this from the start. Trump, Sessions, Mueller & Rosenstein.
 
 
47) A lot of scenarios go wrong because they start by assuming Trump was clueless, didn’t know any of this, Sessions didn’t either or
 
 
48) was part of the #UraniumOne coverup. Same with Mueller & Rosenstein, whom many assume to be dirty, trying to HIDE the evidence.
 
 
49) An intelligence operation based on deception calls for putting the enemy at EASE because they don’t understand what you’re REALLY doing.
 
 
50) So: what do the #UraniumOne traitors & DNC Media & Democrats THINK has been going on for the last 8 months?
 
 
51) Trump has been STAGGERING on the ropes in desperate trouble trying to avoid a KNOCKOUT BLOW as Mueller relentlessly stalks him!
 
 
52) The reality? Mueller has been digging even deeper into #UraniumOne & into#FusionGPS & the Trump dossier.
 
 

53) He *has* found Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Do you know what it was?

Shall I tell you?

 
 
54) He found a MASSIVE Russian bribery scheme involving 1 of the Presidential candidates in which she compromised US National Security.
 
 
55) He *also* found this selfsame candidate illegally funding solicitation of info from Russian gov’t sources to smear the OTHER candidate.
 
 
56) And to compound THAT offense, this candidate also tried to HIDE her funding of this dossier by using a law firm, which is illegal.
 
 
57) The investigation is mostly over. Most of the indictments from the grand jury/juries have been made, sealed.
 
 
58) You’re all about to witness something that was deemed to be an impossibility.
 
 
59) A previous administration that was so corrupt across so many agencies with so many people involved, it made it invincible….
 
 

60) is about to be rolled up.

Dozens of people are going to prison. And you know most of the names.

 
 
61) Not until the hammer actually falls & all the indictments are unsealed will most people figure out what Trump & his team did.
 
 
62) DNC Media never had a chance to compromise/thwart the investigation of#UraniumOne & #FusionGPS because they fell for the COVER STORY.
 
 
63) It’s literally too late at this point to stop what’s coming.
That window closed weeks ago.
 
 

64) Examples will be made out of these people. When Trump & Sessions are done, NO ONE will ever try this kind of treason again.

On the crisp fall night of October 9, 2016, there was an electric energy in the air at Washington University in St. Louis

for the second presidential debate.

Hillary Clinton ended the first debate with a below the belt attack on Donald Trump accusing him

of bullying a former Miss Universe beauty queen.

There was a sense in the air that Trump – famous for his counter punches – would swing back with a TKO, and boy, did he deliver.

That night on stage Trump made a shocking promise to Clinton in the event he got elected.

“If I win, I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation…we’re going to have a special prosecutor,” Trump said.

Clinton responded,

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”

Trump then interrupted and said:

“Because you’d be in jail.”

Trump’s statement was met with cheers and thunderous applause.

Trump’s famous “because you’d be in jail” line is constantly rotated throughout the Internet via memes and videos on social media to this day;

however, what many seem to have forgotten is the first part of Trump’s statement:

he promised to assign a special prosecutor

to look into Clinton’s crimes. 

Fast forward to May 16, President Trump is now in the White House and meets with Robert Mueller.

CNN reported that Trump interviewed him as a potential replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey.

As Trump would say, “wrong!” I

t’s not possible that Mueller could’ve been interviewing for the FBI director position because he already served in that capacity – under Presidents George W. Bush and briefly Barack Obama – and he exceeded the term limit allowed to work in that role.

The term limit is ten years and Mueller served as FBI director for 12 years. Mueller got a special additional two-year extension from Obama that the Senate approved.

The fake news totally got this wrong — to no one’s surprise.

So what was the meeting really about?

I believe Trump was finalizing his decision

to appoint Mueller as his special prosecutor

to investigate Clinton.

Don’t believe it? Keep reading.

The day after Mueller’s meeting with Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the United States Department of Justice.

In the appointment record signed by Rosenstein it reads:

The Special Counsel is authorized

to conduct an investigation including

“any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated

with the campaign of President Donald Trump,

and any matters that arose

or may arise directly from the investigation.” 

Trump did not collude with Russia.

The left and the media have carried that narrative

based off of lies and a fake dossier.

Trump allowed them to carry their false narrative because he knew he was innocent and that the investigation would eventually turn to the real parties who colluded with Russia.

Enter the Clintons.

What stands out in the affidavit Rosenstein signed included

“matters that arose or may arise

directly from the investigation”

because they knew an investigation

into Russian collusion

would eventually lead to Clinton.

Trump is a man of his word and he’s making good on all of his campaign promises, so why wouldn’t he keep this one?

The left and the media has been so blinded by their partisanship that they’ve failed to see that the greatest bait and switch in the history of the world is going down right before their very eyes.

They’ve naively assumed that since Mueller had been a part of the swamp, he’d protect the swamp.

However, just because he’s associated with corrupt politicians like the Clintons for years does not mean that he likes them or has any interest in protecting them at this point.

After all, the Clintons did go to Trump’s wedding and you know what they say: keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

So the investigation is steering straight for the real guilty actors and Tony Podesta is under the gun for The Podesta Group’s involvement with selling the country’s Uranium to Russia.

This will lead to the indictments

of his brother, John,

Clinton’s former campaign manager,

and, yes, Hillary too! 

Now if Mueller wasn’t going after Tony,

why did he step down as CEO of his company last week?

Multiple sources have confirmed to me Podesta is one of the 17 sealed indictments currently sitting in DC.

Other guilty swamp creatures are catching on

to the true nature of Mueller’s investigation.

On Oct. 30, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a call for an independent investigation into Trump’s alleged campaign collusion with Russians just moments after Mueller unsealed indictments for campaign operatives

Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

She’s also softened her tone from calling for Trump’s impeachment to now stating “impeaching Trump is not someplace we should go”.

Last week, top Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Donna Brazile threw Clinton under the bus by admitting she rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders. Why would they do this now?

They’re distancing themselves from Clinton for a reason.

On Nov. 3, The Hill reported that Trump said that he’ll be proven innocent in the Russia election meddling investigation if special counsel Mueller treats “everything fairly”.

“I hope he’s treating everything fairly and if he is I’m going to be very happy because when you talk about innocent, I am truly not involved in any form of collusion with Russia,” Trump said on Sharyl Attkisson’s show Full Measure.

When Trump was asked if he’d consider firing Mueller, he responded by stating he was confident

he’d be absolved of wrongdoing.

If Mueller is so corrupt and intent on protecting the Clintons, like so many on both the right and the left believe,

why isn’t Trump sweating?

He alluded that he’s not even thinking about firing Mueller.

Not only is Trump a man of his word, he’s rarely ever wrong

and his instincts are killer.

It also should be noted that Mueller is a decorated Marine who served in Vietnam

and has received many medals including the Purple Heart.

Mueller was hired to investigate Clinton, period.

If my theory proves to be correct, this will go down as one of the most brilliant sting operations in history.

I GOT IT!! FINALLY!!

THE NFL ‘KNEELERS’ ARE ‘PROTESTING’

THEIR OWN ILLITERACY!!!!

I don’t care if they are NFL Football Players,

they ought to at least know that

‘THREE STRIKES & YOU ARE OUT’ (???)

The ‘Kneelers’ FRAUDULENT ATTEMPTS at MARXISM went

from

1.) ‘Protesting’ their IGNORANCE of Crime Statistics,

{ ever hear of a Black person being shot dead by a Police Officer
that had their hands up ( that was true) ??}

to

2.) BRAGGING about THEIR HYPOCRACY,

by ‘Protesting’
that ‘they still honor the Flag and the Country’,
BY NOT KNOWING WHAT A ‘PROTEST’ IS,

{ “It’s powerful what all these athletes are doing,” James said.
“It’s not about the disrespect of our flag

and the military that’s made this world free.”] (????)

to

3.) ‘PROTESTING THEIR OWN ILLITERACY’.

{ A discarded verse says,

“No refuge could save the hireling and slave…”,
however,
to apply a word’s modern understanding and usage

to a Historical Lyric is illiterate.

‘At the time Key was writing, the word “slave”

had long functioned in English as a wide-ranging epithet,

hurled at persons of any and all colors, nationalities,

and conditions of servitude or otherwise.’

So, the ‘usage’ of the word has changed some, from;
“No refuge could save the hireling and slave…”,

but to apply a word’s modern understanding and usage

to a Historical Lyric is illiterate.

I don’t care if they are NFL Football Players,

they ought to at least know that

‘THREE STRIKES & YOU ARE OUT’ (???)

Thinking Out Loud

Not even going to bother writing in article form right now with so much to pore over. I’ll do what sportswriter Bruce Jenkins called the Three Dot Lounge.

To check over my theories from all angles, let me post some lingering doubts…If Mueller is legitimately going after Trump, which on the surface you would believe because he sure has been dirty and implicated in many Deep State misdeeds, it would be expected he is covering up for his old cronies including the Podestas…in Mueller’s report there is a reference to lobbying firms: Company A and Company B, presumably Mercury LLC and The Podesta Group…Mercury LLC’s big name is neocon Swamp Critter and former congressman Vin Weber…Podestas require no introduction…anyhow, one can read Mueller’s report and think he is shielding Companies A and B and laying it all on Manafort and Gates…I personally don’t, but it is a valid argument.

…Lobbyists, btw, are pure filth…they will take money from anyone, no matter how destructive it is to the peoples of the countries involved…dollars have no patriotism or loyalty…whether Manafort and Gates are part of the plan or are being sacrificed, I hope they end up getting their due …Podestas are orders of magnitude worse even…

…If Mueller were truly going after Trump, why would Trump not have axed Mueller given the opportunity provided by the Uranium One revelations? …He could have fired Mueller for his conflicts alone, packing his team with nothing but left-leaning prosecutors…Makes little sense…fear of what the media would say? When was the last time Trump was concerned with that?…Why would Jeff Sessions recuse himself and allow Uranium One-compromised Rod Rosenstein to be in charge of appointing a Special Prosecutor with carte blanche unless there was a plan already in place? We know Trump is hardly stupid…we know Sessions is a loyal soldier and the first major political figure to back Trump…again, makes no sense whatsoever…so I’m sticking with my guns that this is a highly-orchestrated sting,

…who leaked the grand jury info? Both the announcement of the timing and the reports that it was Manafort, Gates, and Papadopoulos had to come from somewhere…that’s a strict no-no…

Tony Podesta Resigns

The plot thickens as they say. As I was typing the post below, this big bit o’ news drops.

More in a bit. I haven’t even digested it yet.

“[Tony] was very magnanimous and said, “This is an amazing group of people,” a source said of Podesta’s remarks. Podesta also told staff he “doesn’t intend to go quietly, or learn how to play golf.” He said he “needs to fight this as an individual, but doesn’t want the firm to fight it.”

Today’s gone about as expected, so far.

Not Sure What to Make of This One

So which is it?

this?

or this?

The Donald with a series of pointed tweets directed at the Podestas…

….earth shattering. He and his brother could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled. Fake News weak!

The biggest story yesterday, the one that has the Dems in a dither, is Podesta running from his firm. What he know about Crooked Dems is….

“What he know (sic) about crooked Dems is earth shattering. He and his brother could Drain The Swamp, which would be yet another campaign promise fulfilled.”

Podesta seemed perturbed, perhaps even scared. He brought up Pizzagate in a tweet, which seems like an attempt to draw parallels between Trump’s comment and what the MSM media perceives (suppresses?) as a conspiracy theory.

Not bad enough that I was the victim of a massive cyber crime directed by the Russian President (1/3)

Now I’m the victim of a big lie campaign by the American President (2/3)

  

Pizzagate crazies: you can keep it up but it’s 100% false. Watch your man Alex Jones grovel and then get a life http://bit.ly/2zkIq3M

I’m starting to think Goldstone and Papadopoulos are/were Fusion GPS assets. Don’t take it for anything other than rambling at present. Could be entirely wrong and bears much more digging and thinking. Just a way to get the brain cells churning. More when I get back.

More About the Threats Against Tucker Carlson by Tony Podesta’s Lawyers

From Fox News Insider

“The letter demands that this show ‘immediately cease and desist disseminating false and misleading reports about Mr. Podesta and the Podesta Group,’” Carlson said. “It demands we retract and delete all our prior reporting on the Podesta Group and warns that if we don’t do this ‘Mr. Podesta may pursue legal action, including for damages, in order to fully protect his rights.’”

He said Garinther’s letter also claims that Manafort did not work with the Podesta Group in its representation of the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.

“Apparently that lawyer hasn’t read the Manafort indictment yet,” Carlson said.

He argued that Garinther is simply trying to threaten his show and shut down his reporting on the Podesta Group.

“It’s an effort to use fear to control press coverage,” Carlson said. “We’re not intimidated. We have ample evidence from Mueller’s indictment, from a number of confidential sources to paint a pretty clear picture of exactly what the Podesta Group was doing for years here in Washington.”

He added he’s confident that Mueller’s investigation will be revealing a lot more about Tony Podesta’s lobbying practices.

Rules For A Gunfight

by Drill Instructor Joe B. Fricks, USMC

1. Forget about knives, bats, and fists.

Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns.

Bring all of your friends who have guns.

Bring four times the ammunition you think you could ever need.

2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammunition is cheap – life is expensive. If you shoot inside, buckshot is your friend. A new wall is cheap – funerals are expensive.

3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.

4. If your shooting stance is good, you’re probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.

5. Move away from your attacker and go to cover. Distance is your friend. (Bulletproof cover and diagonal or lateral movement are preferred.)

6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a semi or full-automatic long gun and a friend with a long gun.

7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running. Yell “Fire!” Why “Fire”? Cops will come with the Fire Department, sirens often scare off the bad guys, or at least cause them to lose concentration and will…. and who is going to summon help if you yell ”Intruder,” “Glock” or “Winchester?”

9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on “pucker factor” than the inherent accuracy of the gun.

10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

11. Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.

12. Have a plan.

13. Have a backup plan, because the first one won’t work. “No battle plan ever survives 10 seconds past the first contact with an enemy.”

14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible, but remember, sheetrock walls and the like stop nothing but your pulse when bullets tear through them.

15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

16. Don’t drop your guard.

17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees. Practice reloading one-handed and off-hand shooting. That’s how you live if hit in your “good” side.
18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. Smiles, frowns and other facial expressions don’t (In God we trust. Everyone else keeps your hands where I can see them.)

19. Decide NOW to always be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.

20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

21. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet if necessary, because they may want to kill you.

22. Be courteous to everyone, overly friendly to no one.

23. Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.

24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller than ”4″.

25. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. “All skill is in vain when an Angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket.” At a practice session, throw your gun into the mud, then make sure it still works. You can clean it later.
26. Practice shooting in the dark, with someone shouting at you, when out of breath, etc.

27. Regardless of whether justified or not, you will feel sad about killing another human being. It is better to be sad than to be room temperature.

28. The only thing you EVER say afterward is, “He said he was going to kill me. I believed him. I’m sorry, Officer, but I’m very upset now. I can’t say anything more. Please speak with my attorney.”

Mueller’s Team Enigma

If you’ve been paying attention, there is a lot of media furor being focused on the enigma that is Special Counsel Mueller and the team of investigators, lawyers, and FBI veterans that he has gathered for his probe into, well, something about Russia, something about the election, and collusion?

What exactly he is supposed to be investigating seems to change every time it’s being mentioned by a different outlet, but the one thing that every group agrees on is that the scope of his investigation can turn basically whichever direction he sees fit with only a little oversight from the DoJ that appointed him.

It’s not clear who exactly he answers to, if he answers to anyone at all, or whether he even pays attention to requests and demands for how the investigation should go.

It’s not even entirely clear whether the myriad of other election investigations in the House, Senate, FBI, and however many other agencies, overlap and feed into Mueller’s investigation or if he’s even following those developments.

With all this confusion, the only thing that can really be done is to look at the exact makeup that is the Mueller Team Enigma.

This article won’t try to sell any prognostications or predictions or theories or hypotheses, this is just what is actually known about the team itself and its roster, though expect a tiny bit of speculator commentary on the roles and experience the various members bring to the table.

First, to bat, the namesake of the MTE, there is Robert Mueller himself.

A 12 year head of the FBI, he took the helm the week after 9/11 through to 2013 before handing the reigns over to his protégé James Comey.

Mueller is noted for being respected on both sides of the aisle.

But in some circles he is reviled as a resident ‘swamp creature’ having been FBI director during the tenures of both Bush and Obama, both presidencies having vastly expanded the domestic surveillance apparatus that the FBI had full access to, though Mueller and Comey both opposed parts of it.

He was an officer in the Marines for three years during Vietnam, in which he received a purple heart, and as a lawyer worked in public practice, served in various state attorney positions, and headed the DoJ criminal division.

In a notable twist, after President Trump fired James Comey, Mueller was actually interviewed again for the role of FBI director by President Trump himself in a little-reported meeting literally the day before he was appointed as Special Counsel.

There is a question to be asked about why exactly Trump was bringing Mueller into an interview for a job that he had already served the full term plus a few years for, especially since Trump had fired his protégé, Comey.

But again, this article will not contain speculation, only information.

Aaron Zebley, an FBI terrorist hunter from the years before 9/11 when the FBI’s terrorist pursuit team consisted of a single-digit roster, also served as the chief of staff to Robert Mueller when Mueller was given a 2-year extension on his term as director.

He followed Mueller to the law firm WilmerHale after Mueller’s tenure at the FBI ended.

His inclusion on the MTE is no surprise, given that besides James Comey there is only a handful that has worked with Mueller as closely in the FBI, and, since he left government work to follow Mueller, it is logical he would follow Mueller again into this latest adventure.

James Quarles III, one of the prosecutors from Watergate himself, is one of the inclusions in the MTE that is giving pundits all the ammo they want for comparing the probe to Watergate.

He also is following Mueller from WilmerHale and is a specialist in campaign finance research, a potential area of interest given the accusations from across the spectrum of financial malfeasance by campaigns, campaign staffers and advisors, and foundations.

Jeannie Rhee, a final addition from WilmerHale to Mueller’s team, is a veteran of the DoJ, having served in a variety of roles both at the federal level and as an attorney in Washington DC itself.

Reported to be a specialist in white collar crimes, she wins in court include the successful prosecution of officers of the Washington Teachers Union in which she flipped several embezzlement and corruption conspirators within the union into witnesses.

Andrew Weissman, the prosecutor of the Genovese, Colombo, and Gambino crime families as well as the director of the task force in charge of investigating Enron. Another big-name pick in a team full of big names, with the most experience so far in prosecuting crime families apparently.

Michael Dreeben, the deputy solicitor general and the second person in history to have argued 100 cases before the Supreme Court. In his first case before the Supreme Court, he was mocked by Scalia (yes, that Scalia) and schooled by John Roberts (yes, Chief Justice John Roberts) in a 9-0 decision. It seems likely that at least some aspect of this case will probably make it to the Supreme Court, so having the person with the most experience arguing in front of those justices on the team is a logical move.

Peter Carr, experienced as a spokesperson for the DoJ and other roles, including (unremarked by the media) a 5-year stint as the spokesperson for Orrin Hatch, a Republican Senator out of Utah. He is, of course, enlisted as a spokesperson for the MTE, not that they’ve been releasing much information yet.

Rush Atkinson, noted by many articles to be in the DoJ’s criminal fraud division, but if this is the same one as found in the cited article it would appear he was initially recruited into the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, in the Office of Intelligence.

So who we might be looking at is a young early 30’s researcher, which is a lot more intriguing than simply being out of the criminal fraud division.

If this is the same Rush Atkinson, then he also is the youngest member of the MTE thus far.

Zainab Ahmad is a bit of a doozy.

She is a noted specialist in counterterrorism cases and extraterritorial cases.

The latter makes sense given the international scope of the investigation, but the former seems a bit out of place, though no further out of place than Aaron Zebley whose career was also based around the hunting of terrorists.

She has prosecuted foreign and US terrorists alike and has racked up an impressive amount of wins against them.

It should be noted in 2016 she was moved at the direction of Loretta Lynch to dealing with transnational organized crime, returning briefly back to DC before being recruited by Mueller into the MTE.

Lisa Page, another veteran of the FBI and an expert in money laundering an organized crime.

While she’s the first to be noted as a specialist by any media organizations in money laundering, there is a surprising number of organized crime specialists.

It is almost like the MTE is getting staffed up to go after an international crime ring with financial ties to terrorist organizations, not a campaign collusion interference we’re-not-really-sure-so-we’re-going-to-scream-treason investigation.

Elizabeth Prelogar is the first member of the team so far to have notable ties to Democrats outside of campaign contributions, given she clerked for both the Notorious RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) and Elena Kagan.

She also comes from the solicitor general’s office, probably following Michael Dreeben.

Despite her probable partisan leanings, it would make sense to bring her on for her connections to two current sitting Supreme Court Justices from the liberal wing of the court in case the investigation starts entangling Democrats in its litigation.

Aaron Zelinsky, an attorney out of the Maryland Attorney General’s office and the first real evidence that current administration officials have some sway over the Mueller probe or at least personal connections to it. Aaron Zelinsky served in Maryland under Rosenstein for 12 years and was probably recommended for the MTE by Rosenstein himself.

Rosenstein was the one who appointed Mueller special counsel, after all, it might very well be Zelinsky was added to the team so Rosenstein had someone he trusted personally inside of it.

Andrew Goldstein, another VERY interesting pick for the MTE, notable because of his status as the leader of one of New York’s Public Corruption Units.

I will  “Prosecutors on the public integrity side of the Unit are responsible for investigating and prosecuting all types of crimes committed by public employees, elected officials, candidates for public office, and others who hold the public trust.” While there is an obvious public corruption angle to the election investigation, its notable that his office under his leadership has successfully prosecuted top Democrats AND Republicans in New York, making him a somewhat nonpartisan pick in terms of his pursuit of justice, and if former administration officials start getting swept up by the MTE Goldstein is another recruit who will doubtlessly come in handy.

Adam Jed joins as apparently the second youngest member of the MTE after Rush Atkinson.  

His experience that he brings to the team is rather unique, given that he’s been arguing civil cases in front of a variety of lower courts over recent topics like the ACA, providing contraception as part of the ACA, and implementation of the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.

 Its possible his inclusion is to provide more legal muscle for any cases the MTE has to work through lower courts, or it could be he is spending his time reading up on FEC opinions and rulings to work as a pinch hitter if the investigation has to deal with laws and rules from the FEC.

Brandon Van Grack, who as recently as May was already involved in probes from the Department of Justice national security division as a prosecutor with a specialization in espionage investigations.  

Probes he was involved in according to the New York Times revolve around Flynn and the Flynn Intel Group over lobbying work done for Turkey’s Erdogan as apparently confirmed by acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  

McCabe, of course, is noted for having a longstanding grudge against Flynn over Flynn coming to the aid of a junior FBI agent in a sexual discrimination case.

His recruitment into the team, for now, seems to be the only addition with notable experience in the influence of foreign governments on elections, the 2016 election in particular.

Finally, the latest member of the MTE which has apparently grown to over 25 members and support staff since it began though many of those names haven’t been released is Peter Strzok, a leading member of the FBI Clinton Email investigation which looked into Hillary’s private email server and found “that Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her private server in 2011 and 2012 with her deputy chief of staff, Jacob Sullivan, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Secretary of State William Burns. The State Department said the contents of the 22 emails were so highly classified that not even the subject matter could be disclosed.”

 He also apparently was a part of the initial Russian probe after the Clinton Email investigation closed down, making him only the second official link to the rest of the government’s Russian investigations to be added to the team, and the first to have been directly tied to an investigation of Hillary Clinton.

The latest word is that the MTE may grow further in the future, but in the meantime what has been assembled at face value is an absolutely terrifying group of legal veterans and workhorses with specializations in virtually every aspect of law that might be used against a criminal organization, though with notably few mentions of anyone specialized in election law or in prosecuting or investigating interactions with foreign governments, with an exception or two.  

Of note, as well, is the much-covered bias involving donations to political parties, with donations to Democrats over Republicans occurring at a 10-1 ratio, though it is notably this is over a 10 year period and involved less than half of the members of the MTE.  

At best count for this article, there’s around $54000 donated to Democrats over that 10 year period, with many of those donations going towards Democrat organizations and Obama’s campaigns, a small fraction of those having been to the Clinton campaign, and many of the Republican donations having been made by those who also donated to Democrats.  

Of note is also the several Republicans including Mueller himself who are on the MTE.

Really, with this much legal firepower assembled under one tight organization and filled with highly experienced and battle-tested (in Mueller’s case quite literally battle-tested) leadership, who a few of the individuals threw money

it isn’t really important.  

The important question is why does a team assembled

under the mandate to investigate foreign influence in the 2016 elections

seem to be less of a panel of election law experts

and more of a legal hit team assembled

to tear to pieces an international crime ring

stuffed to the brim with expertise in financial,

corruption, terrorism, and white collar crimes?
