Robert Mueller Appointment Another Charlie Brown Football Moment?

Timothy Birdnow

Does anyone else suspect the GOP has fallen into a trap with this appointment of a special prosecutor? Especially former FBI head Robert Mueller? I sure do.

First, let us ask ourselves why was a special prosecutor appointed at all? There is no actual allegation of illegality, despite media hysteria. Comey has not even been deposed about the supposed "memo" which was read to the Washington Post over the telephone by a leaker; there is no evidence Comey even wrote it. He has declined to testify before Congress. So why appoint a special prosecutor when we have yet to have any suggestion fo a crime - or have heard from the parties involved.

The reality is that Chuck Schumer demanded this and was threatening to hold the Senate hostage. He also demanded a private, closed door meeting. Now why would he do that?

As I see it,he either a.had information not known to the Senate at large, information that had to be kept secret for security purposes or b. he wanted to speak frankly, too frankly for the general public. The former is dubious on the face of it; why would Schumer have undisclosed information when he is not the Senate Majority Leader? If he had such information wouldn't he have gone privately to Mitch McConnell first? That Schumer resorted to threats to get a closed door session speaks volumes about the matter; he had no secret information. He wanted to speak frankly.

About what? What was it he couldn't say publicly?

I think we all know; Schumer wanted to threaten the GOP in private. What did he have to use? Not sure. But I suspect he blackmailed and cajoled, pointed out that the Senators didn't like trump either, an outsider who was coming in and upsetting the all-you-can-eat buffet. Was there more? I suspect so. In point of fact, I suspect some sort of blackmail occured behind those closed doors.

But that is not provable without actually hearing the conversation. But, as always, the GOP caved to the pressure.

And so Robert Mueller, former FBI director, has been appointed as Special Counsel. The democrats largely cheered the move. Why?

If a person is respected by both sides in Washington you can bet he is a duplicitous weasle. Comey was such. Former "plamegate" counsel Patrick Fitzgerald was another. If you are a Conservative you had better grab your socks, because you are going to have them knocked off, and not in a good way.

Robert Mueller is entirely a creature of the Establishment. He started his legal career working for a law firm in San Francisco, the leftist capital of America. He moved to the Northern District of California where he worked as a U.S. attorney in the home of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This alone should make the man suspect. He moved from Frisco to Boston, the other citadel of Satan, where he made a name for himself as a prosecutor. Like all Establishment elitists, he moved in and out of government, taking jobs as partners of law firms between government gigs.

In Boston he worked for Hill and Barlow, venerable law firm that defended the communists Sacco and Vanzetti. Three former Massachussetts Governors - Endicott Peabody, Michael Dukakis and William Weld; = worked for Hill and Barlow, as did Deval Patrick, so it is a jumping off spot for political careers. Mueller also worked for Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, Senior partner William Weld chaired Michael Dukakis' presidential campaign. The law firm defended pro-bono the U.S. Army in the McCarthy-Army hearings (where Sen. McCarthy was investigating communist infiltration into the military.)

Mueller was also pay master on the Volkswagon settlement. Certainly nobody of a conservative - or even impartial - bent would take such a job as the settlement was solely an attck on Volkswagon because they tried to buck Obama's radical EPA regulations. Mueller also defended the government's massacre at Ruby Ridge.

Now, I know that an upwardly mobile man will likely have associations with leftist supporting law firms, but one must wonder how much of this rubbed off. Mueller was unquestionably an insider, and one who was not one bit offensive to these types.

George Bush appointed Mueller in 2001, shortly after taking office after the bitterly contested election of 2000. Naturally the RINO Bush would choose someone the Democrats would not object to, and he was so pleasing to them that Barack Hussein Obama (Peace be upon him!) kept Mueller on for two years after taking office. Clearly he is a man the Left finds pleasing. But nothing comes free from liberals or Democrats, and I suspect the bill is now due.

When Bush appointed Mueller no less a partisan hack than Patrick Leahy sang his praises:

"But Leahy said Mueller, a veteran prosecutor credited with turning around the U.S. attorney's office in San Francisco after his appointment there in 1998, is the right man for the job. "I applaud President Bush for his appointment," the senator said.

Leahy's committee gave Mueller a unanimous vote of approval Thursday after two days of hearings earlier in the week that were marked by unstinting praise for Mueller and widespread condemnation of the FBI. Hours after the committee vote, the full Senate approved Mueller for the job on a 98-0 vote."

There are other points to ponder here; Mueller is an old friend of James Comey, the man who started this whole ball rolling.

The media is quite pleased; Time called it a "smart pick". CNN is singing his praises too. Ditto Politico. And Republicans like Jason Chavetz cheered the move "Mueller is a great selection" even though he was chosen by the Deputy AG, a Democrat. And, as with Patrick Fitzgerald and James Comey, the latest special counsel is the return of Ashley Wilkes, the man whose honor is above reproach (until he rules against the liberals.)

For reasons beyond me, our side is forever falling for the same tricks. Like Charlie Brown going after that football, every time the liberals promise to play fair we believe them and wind up falling on our backsides. I suspect it will be no different with this Mueller investigation. And furthermore, I suspect Robert Mueller knows that if he fails to produce for the enemies of the President his career prospects will be zilch. Mueller isn't stupid.

Why are we?
