Former FBI director Robert Mueller has been appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to serve in a special counsel position for overseeing the FBI investigation in what has been described by the corporate mainstream media and the sore loser DEMs as Russians meddling into the 2016 election cycle and related matters.
To quote from the official statement from by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein:
“I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome,”
The new appointee has broad powers with regard to, let me quote again from the appointment letter:
“any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and…any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”
Donald Trump released a short statement on Wednesday about the new development:
A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know – there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity. I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.
Robert Mueller was appointed in a special prosecutor position basically, following the new fake-news media created scandal alleging that President Trump has demanded former FBI director James Comey to back off from investigating Michael Flynn, Trump’s former NSA Adviser.
A NYT hit piece alleges that an anonymous source told to one of their reporters during a phone conversation that Comey wrote a memo 3 months ago which reads that President Trump has asked former FBI director during a private convo to, let me quote from the NYT so called article:
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
NYT claims that the unnamed source has read parts of the memo (no context) to its reporter during the phone conversation, but there’s zero proof to their claims, as usual. Also, Comey sat on that memo (which is not a document, nor a recording as in verbatim) for 3 months, despite the fact that fake news media is now claiming the President has tried to “obstruct justice” and all that fake news liberal nonsense.
What’s incredibly stupid even for fake news media standards is that James Comey has said under oath on May 3rd that Donald Trump’s administration had not pressured the FBI nor him to stop any investigation for political purposes.
Comey was asked by House Panel to testify on Wednesday at 9:30 EST about the alleged memo. It would make for an interesting show, to say the least. I mean, if the memo is “real” and Comey sat on it for 3 months, he can be prosecuted for obstructing justice, as he failed to inform the DOJ of the POTUS’ attempt to obstruct justice, as per NYT’s claims(18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361).
As usual, this is just another piece of fake news from the MSM, nothing to see here, move along.
