The Mueller Investigation Is Collapsing After Scandals Reveal Corruption
If Special Counsel Robert Mueller had a credibility problem before this week, what he is experiencing now is nothing short of a public relations nightmare.
After learning that one of Mueller’s lead investigators authored virulently anti-Donald Trump text messages, the news just keeps getting worse for the special prosecutor, and the whispers calling for Mueller’s resignation are becoming louder.
End the madness
The controversy came to a head last week for Mueller when a New York Times report claimed that FBI section chief Peter Strzok had to be removed from the investigation after it was revealed that he sent anti-Trump text messages. Since then, a plethora of reports have emerged naming Strzok as the lead investigator in several controversial cases where the FBI’s impartiality was already called into question.
For instance, Strzok and a partner were the investigators who interviewed short-lived National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in a surprise interrogation. During the course of the surprise inquisition, Flynn failed to disclose a meeting he held with a Russian ambassador.
Flynn paid the price for this deceit, and he pleaded guilty to deceiving investigators last week. However, Strzok also interviewed political aides working for Democratic lawmakers, and with surprisingly different results.
After being deceived by Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills regarding their knowledge of the Secretary of State’s unauthorized email server, the Department of Justice was reluctant to prosecute either of these staffers for the exact same offense as Flynn faced.
Furthermore, Flynn’s lie wasn’t even central to Mueller’s investigation. As constitutional scholar and Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz explains, Flynn’s meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergei Lavrov was perfectly legal:
So there was nothing criminal about Flynn’s request of Kislyak, even if he were instructed to do so by higher-ups in the Trump transition team. The same is true of his discussions regarding sanctions. The president-elect is entitled to have different policies about sanctions and to have his transition team discuss them with Russian officials.
However, Mills and Abedin lied about facts that were crucial to the email server investigation, since their knowledge of Clinton’s server would have proven that the Secretary of State was advised not to use it by IT staffers and other aides.
