Robert Mueller the former FBI director turned 'independent counsel' plans to indict and arrest someone in President Trump's circles on Monday. That is, if you believe the breathless reporting first of [the] C[linton]N[ews]N[etwork], then 'confirmed' by The Wall Street Journal and NBC. The fact that unsealing a grand jury indictment in advance would be illegal for members of Mueller's team hasn't deterred #TheResistance and Democratic Twitter from frothing into a collective frenzy over this pre-Halloween weekend.
Much of Washington seems to think that telegraphing an indictment is a sign of Mueller's confidence -- but it actually smacks of desperation. Urged on by Fox News, the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee have both been closing in on the question of whether a trashy piece of partisan [British intelligence derived] opposition research was used by the likes of DNI James Clapper, DCI John Brennan and Mueller's since fired pal FBI director James Comey to justify FISA court warrants of surveillance against Trump and his campaign associates. The abuse of intelligence community assets for partisan political purposes being one of the articles of impeachment drawn up against Richard Milhous Nixon before he resigned in 1974, and the allegation a small army of CIA/NSA/FBI shills have most vigorously denied regarding Obama Administration ordered spying on the Trump campaign.
As the astute Conservative Treehouse site notes, if Mueller did not turn in an indictment ASAP he would have no chance of holding off growing Republican calls for him to resign from the special counsel investigation over blatant conflicts of interest, ranging from his friendship with Comey (whose firing is laughably cited as a potential obstruction of justice by the President) to Mueller's own entanglement and shielding of the Clintons and their money laundering Foundation in the bribery-boosted Uranium One transaction. Since politicized prosecutors can indict a ham sandwich in this country, Mueller is reverting to his reckless and often illegal tactics of persecution previously used against various targets from Lyndon LaRouche to Boston civil rights attorney Harvey Silverglate. -- JWSRead More
