Special Counsel Robert Mueller is in charge of investigating the Russia-Trump collusion. However, Sean Hannity or Sara Carter might say that’s like putting a dirty, sly fox in charge of guarding the henhouse.
How can a dirty fox like Mueller investigate something that was based on a fake dossier paid for by crooked Hillary Clinton in the first place?
Besides if the results of the Russia collusion already showed there was NO collusion, then why is Mueller’s investigation still ongoing?
Hannity and Carter believe maybe it’s time to investigate the investigators.
Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted time on his Tuesday show to examining the past of special counsel Robert Mueller and his findings were intriguing.
Hannity referred to a report from Fox News’ Sarah Carter citing Mueller’s career as a prosecutor in the 1980s. When Mueller was serving as assistant U.S. attorney, four men were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a crime they did not commit and the special counsel was in charge of the case when it happened.
Mueller – wrongfully convicted and imprisoned 4 men for a crime they did not commit
“Robert Mueller’s career has been anything but impeccable,” Hannity said. “One of the worst stains on his record comes from his time Boston, where he served as assistant U.S. attorney and acting U.S. attorney in the ’80s. During this time notorious Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger, he was actively engaged by the FBI as an informant. The relationship between Bulger and the bureau was wrought with nothing but corruption and criminal collusion.”
“Bulger’s FBI handler, guy by the name of John Connolly covered up for many of the horrific crimes that were committed by Bulger and his associates, including one instance where four men were wrongfully framed and convicted and imprisoned for decades — all for a murder it turns out they did not commit,” Hannity continued. “The men were ultimately exonerated. A judge awarded $101 million in damages, but not before two of the men actually died in prison. Robert Mueller was the U.S. attorney in charge while these men were rotting in prison while certain agents in the FBI under Mueller covered up the truth.”
Here’s the complete story from Sara Carter, Fox News contributor.
Mueller In Boston
Local law enforcement officials, the media, and some colleagues criticized Mueller and the FBI for what they believed was the bureau’s role in covering up for the FBI’s longtime dealings with mobster and informant James “Whitey” Bulger.
Bulger was a kingpin and a confidential informant for the FBI from the 1970s in the bureau’s efforts to take down the Italian mafia in Boston. But Bulger’s relationship with his FBI handler Special Agent John Connolly became toxic. It was later discovered that Connolly went out of his way to protect Bulger and aided the crime boss against investigations being conducted by the Boston PD and the Massachusetts State Police. According to reports at the time, Connolly would inform Bulger of wiretaps and surveillance being conducted by law enforcement.
Journalist Kevin Cullen wrote extensively about the FBI’s involvement with Bulger and raised concerns about the old case in a 2011 article in Boston.com after Obama asked Congress to make an exception to allow Mueller to stay on two-extra years beyond the mandated 10 year limit as FBI director.
Mueller Framed Four Men Based on Lies
Cullen said in his story that Mueller who was first an assistant US attorney, “then as the acting US attorney in Boston” had written “letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies. Of course, Mueller was also in that position while Whitey Bulger was helping the FBI cart off his criminal competitors even as he buried bodies in shallow graves along the Neponset.”
In 2001, those four men, who were convicted in 1965 of Teddy Deegan’s murder were exonerated by the courts. It was discovered that the FBI withheld evidence from the court to protect their informant that would have cleared the men, according to reports. At the time, the bureau buried the truth to protect Vincent “Jimmy’’ Flemmi, their informant, who was the brother of Stevie Flemmi, a partner of Bulger.
Coleen Rowley, a former FBI special agent and former Minneapolis Division legal counsel of the FBI, wrote an Op-Ed in the Huffington Post last year No, Robert Mueller and James Comey Aren’t Heroes stated that when the truth about Bulger “was finally uncovered through intrepid investigative reporting and persistent, honest judges, U.S. taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to the four men framed for murders committed by (the FBI operated) Bulger gang.”
But according to Cullen, Mueller never was asked by Congress, “what did you know about Whitey Bulger, and when did you know it?”
MUELLER – WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT?
U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner in Boston said the bureau helped convict the four men of a crime they did not commit, and the three of them had been sentenced to die in the electric chair.
“This case goes beyond mistakes, beyond the unavoidable errors of a fallible system,” Gertner wrote in a 228-page decision, which called the FBI’s defense — that Massachusetts was to blame for an inadequate investigation — “absurd,” according to Cullen’s article.
Schoen noted for these reasons alone there should be concern about Mueller’s special counsel.
“As I have mentioned before, under Mueller’s watch in Boston, the second most corrupt relationship between an FBI agent (John Connolly, now in prison for murder-related charges) and his information (Whitey Bulger) unfolded,” said Schoen. “Mueller was neck deep in it and has never answered the questions that the media asked rhetorically, but that should have been asked by a grand jury of Congressional Committee. Even such dubious sources as the NY Times, Boston Globe, and Huffington Post have demanded answers. Many have suggested he should never have been FBI Director.”
It seems the question that is coming back around to haunt Mueller once again is:
What did Mueller KNOW and WHEN did he know it?
Hannity said it’s vital the country find out what Mueller knew and when he knew it and believes the media and Congress are propping him up as a hero to support a political agenda.
“When did [Robert Mueller] know about all of this this? These are questions I’m sure you have not heard from your friends in the liberal media. Some members of Congress, the media, they’re praising Mueller. The pillar of honesty. The pillar of virtue,” Hannity said.
“They’ve never investigated him. They’re actually just lying. It’s their talking point. All the information we’re telling you about is right there, right in front of the liberal mainstream media in their faces. They purposely ignore it because their destroy Trump agenda — that goes above all else.”
“Robert Mueller has an agenda. He’s carrying out a witch hunt. This is par for the course,” Hannity concluded. President Trump certainly agrees with that!
A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!
