Retired FBI Special Agent Blows The Whistle On The Real Robert Mueller

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Shortly after former FBI Director Robert Mueller was announced as the special counsel for the Russia investigation, the screeching hordes of America’s “always wrong about everything” punditry class cheered in near unison, lauding the man as some sort of second coming. This sort of thing should always be seen as a red flag, and thanks to an excellent article written by retired FBI special agent Coleen Rowley, everyone can now know exactly why.

But first, who is Coleen Rowley?

Coleen Rowley, a retired FBI special agent and division legal counsel whose May 2002 memo to then-FBI Director Robert Mueller exposed some of the FBI’s pre-9/11 failures, was named one of TIME magazine’s “Persons of the Year” in 2002. Her 2003 letter to Robert Mueller in opposition to launching the Iraq War is archived in full text on the NYT and her 2013 op-ed entitled “Questions for the FBI Nominee” was published on the day of James Comey’s confirmation hearing.

It’s important to be aware of that background as you read the following excerpts from the excellent post published at CounterPunch titled, Comey and Mueller: Russiagate’s Mythical Heroes:

Mainstream commentators display amnesia when they describe former FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey as stellar and credible law enforcement figures. Perhaps if they included J. Edgar Hoover, such fulsome praise could be put into proper perspective.


Although these Hoover successors, now occupying center stage in the investigation of President Trump, have been hailed for their impeccable character by much of Official Washington, the truth is, as top law enforcement officials of the George W. Bush Administration (Mueller as FBI Director and James Comey as Deputy Attorney General), both presided over post-9/11 cover-ups and secret abuses of the Constitution, enabled Bush-Cheney fabrications used to launch wrongful wars, and exhibited plain vanilla incompetence.

Well of course, that’s how you get promoted in America.

TIME Magazine would probably have not called my own disclosures a “bombshell memo” to the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry in May 2002 if it had not been for Mueller’s having so misled everyone after 9/11. Although he bore no personal responsibility for intelligence failures before the attack, since he only became FBI Director a week before, Mueller denied or downplayed the significance of warnings that had poured in yet were all ignored or mishandled during the Spring and Summer of 2001.


I wanted to believe Director Mueller when he expressed some regret in our personal meeting the night before we both testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee. He told me he was seeking improvements and that I should not hesitate to contact him if I ever witnessed a similar situation to what was behind the FBI’s pre 9/11 failures.


A few months later, when it appeared he was acceding to Bush-Cheney’s ginning up intelligence to launch the unjustified, counterproductive and illegal war on Iraq, I took Mueller up on his offer, emailing him my concerns in late February 2003. Mueller knew, for instance, that Vice President Dick Cheney’s claims connecting 9/11 to Iraq were bogus yet he remained quiet. He also never responded to my email.


Beyond ignoring politicized intelligence, Mueller bent to other political pressures. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Mueller directed the “post 9/11 round-up” of about 1,000 immigrants who mostly happened to be in the wrong place (the New York City area) at the wrong time. FBI Headquarters encouraged more and more detentions for what seemed to be essentially P.R. purposes. Field offices were required to report daily the number of detentions in order to supply grist for FBI press releases about FBI “progress” in fighting terrorism. Consequently, some of the detainees were brutalized and jailed for up to a year despite the fact that none turned out to be terrorists.


For his part, Deputy Attorney General James Comey, too, went along with the abuses of Bush and Cheney after 9/11 and signed off on a number of highly illegal programs including warrantless surveillance of Americans and torture of captives. Comey also defended the Bush Administration’s three-year-long detention of an American citizen without charges or right to counsel.


What’s not well understood is that Comey’s and Mueller’s joint intervention to stop Bush’s men from forcing the sick Attorney General to sign the certification that night was a short-lived moment. A few days later, they all simply went back to the drawing board to draft new legal loopholes to continue the same (unconstitutional) surveillance of Americans.


The mythology of this episode, repeated endlessly throughout the press, is that Comey and Mueller did something significant and lasting in that hospital room. They didn’t. Only the legal rationale for their unconstitutional actions was tweaked.


Mueller was even okay with the CIA conducting torture programs after his own agents warned against participation. Agents were simply instructed not to document such torture, and any “war crimes files” were made to disappear. Not only did “collect it all” surveillance and torture programs continue, but Mueller’s (and then Comey’s) FBI later worked to prosecute NSA and CIA whistleblowers who revealed these illegalities.


Neither Comey nor Mueller — who are reported to be “joined at the hip” — deserve their current lionization among politicians and mainstream media. Instead of Jimmy Stewart-like “G-men” with reputations for principled integrity, the two close confidants and collaborators merely proved themselves, along with former CIA Director George “Slam Dunk” Tenet, reliably politicized sycophants, enmeshing themselves in a series of wrongful abuses of power along with official incompetence.


It seems clear that based on his history and close “partnership” with Comey, called “one of the closest working relationships the top ranks of the Justice Department have ever seen,” Mueller was chosen as Special Counsel not because he has integrity but because he will do what the powerful want him to do.


Mueller didn’t speak the truth about a war he knew to be unjustified. He didn’t speak out against torture. He didn’t speak out against unconstitutional surveillance. And he didn’t tell the truth about 9/11. He is just “their man.”

Not good.

It'll only be Game-On when shit like Mueller are found face down in a ditch or river.
Trump's gotta send his message like the Clinton Crime Clan do.

Damn!!  How will the delegates to the Convention of States be able to conclude anything other than that they should propose a single Constitutional amendment to the state legislatures that would abolish the three branches of the federal government and all departments created under them.  Time for a complete rethink about the process of governance.

 The FBI record going back to the start is dirty as it gets. Why would anyone put any faith in any of them?

  Some of the FBIs finer moments. JFK,MLK,9/11 and MR Folcum. Waco and many other screwed up things.

  The FBI has been cockblocking justice thruout its history.

Murdering Bill Cooper wasn't an FBI "failure", but it was due to an FBI pre-911 failure.
Mueller is lined up to pay now for his sins.
Know this pariah's business: or die.

Bueller and Commie are Mafia Capo's. They are fixers, they fix anything that goes against Plan.!!!

Last time I heard tell of this Amerokraut FBI he was on his annual one-day stopover in Yemen.

Yemen? Upstate NY Yemen? No, MENA Yemen.

That turned out well.

Impeach Robert Mueller!

Muellers appontment needs to be terminated. There is nothing to investigate. Comey's testimony proved that.

If the Congress and the current US Govt Leadership does not terminate the Mueller appointment, then we all know that the fix is in. Mueller will keep the anti Trump fires going in order to stop any attempt by the Trump administration to "drain the swamp.'

outsider9's picture

agree and additionally: the democrat's plan was to keep comey employed and knowing probably Trump would fire him in which a scandal would be created called "obstruction of justice" in order to discredit him even more so and also possibly impeach the president. Secondly, as noted by some prominent analysts, these fires need to be kept going long enough to influence the 2018 election cycle. Know your enemy and the signs of the times!

WTF are you talking about?   Trump has no such notion in reality to drain the swamp.  Christ, look at the Goldman people, and the insider Billionaires in which he surrounds himself.  Trump is there to collect more money, use OUR fuel to run his enterprises and that is what America is all about.

You put your right foot out, you pull your right foot in...that's what it's all about!

Could be that Trump knows these people, who also have proved their ability to navigate the shark infested swamp, and knows they are with him----you sure do not know them!

Mueller has always been a dirty pig. His deep connections in Boston were also, most likely, used to convict the innocent patsy, Dhozhar Tsarnaev, and to cover up the truth behind the Boston Marathon bombing. If you remember not long after the bombing the following all resigned: Robert Mueller, Janet Napolitano, Ed harris (Boston Police Chief), Steve Abraira (Boston fire chief), and Boston FBI head Richard DesLauriers (another one with connections to the Whitey Bulger case) - to name just a few.

Your post is full on BULL SHIT. The evidence against the Tsarnaev's was overwhelming. Their actions against the police and others (security guard) left no doubt as to their guilt.

There were videos of them at the marathon, walking around and placing their backpacks (bombs) down and walking away from them. Their apartments had other bomb making materials inside.

How you come up with a statement that they were "patsies" is beyond reason.

I'm really getting sick and tired of seeing bullshit posts by people who obviously don't know what the fuck they're talking about.

There are plenty of reasons to question the official account of that incident.

You have yet to learn that the news you hear on CNN and read in your local paper is produced by the same groups who do most of the terrorist acts.  Either that or you are a troll.

headless blogger's picture

He's likely a Troll. Or maybe he's Mueller himself or one of his fuck buddies.

headless blogger's picture

You're a brainwashed neuro-typical follower.

There was absolutely NO evidence presented that proved his guilt. Zippo. In fact, everything they presented showed he did not do it.

Amazingly, the CIA Analyst Graham Fuller's Daughter was married to Uncle Ruslan Tsarni (he had changed his name to Tsarni fron Tsarnaev). Now, that is a fact. Read Fuller's book about his adopted son's death by drug overdose. He talks about his Daughter Samantha's coming wedding to Ruslan (back in the 1990s), whom he thought highly of.

If you are going by a video  (that actually shows Dhzohar wearing a light gray and white pack) and hearsay about "bomb making in an apartment", you literally prove your ignorance.

Funny, why hasn't anything been said about the little Mrs. who would have seen the bombs in her kitchen? Cuz it's BULL SHIT.

From the heavily-coache "Danny", to the nonsensical and NO-proof "hijacking" and random murder of a cop, down to his own attorney (Government appointed) Judy Clarke....It's all bullshit.

Mueller and Comey are up there with the Worse of the Worse. We need Nuremburg style trials for all these low life FUCKERS.

  He might be a whistle blower? Like JEH was. just sayin

Had a very wealthy friend tell me one time he never, ever walks into a court of law without knowing what the outcome will be. Looks to be the case here, too.

Coleen should be running the FBI.

I knew Mueller would be next up on the ZH bash list. Anyone looking into Trump/Russia will get The Treatment.

Strange. You're not looking into Trump/Russia thing,and you are getting bashed by the look of the down/up votes.

I wonder if Robert Mueller is anyway related to SS-Gruppenführer und Generalleutnant der Polizei Heinrich Mueller, the top Gestapo guy working for Hitler and Himmler.

If she was against the war ... she must have had a special kind of courage and possessed with inexplicable spider sense ... definitely need to heed this libtard's bloviating.

All of them are the same shit.

BAHAHAHAHA! Thanks! I needed a good laugh this morning.

This dude's cover up resume is impressive, I have to say. As US Attorney in San Francisco, he worked to cover-up the OKC bombing, Waco and Ruby Ridge evidence by changing the rules of evidence so that the FBI and prosecution did not have to share as much evidence with defense attorneys in the cases as would have been required in the past.

He was also involved in covering up the Noriega, BCCI and BNL scandals of Bush Senior.

He was appointed by the Swamp creatures just days before 9/11, and as far as that event, when the smoke was gathering over the funding of Atta by Pakistani ISI flunkies of the US Intelligence crowd, he covered up the Indian RAW intelligence they had gathered on the subject.

I believe that Iran will end up paying 9/11 families next yr instead of Saudis. There's a JASTA 9/11 family trial vs KAS sometime next yr.

AmericanWino's picture

Oct 16 a federal judgement against Iran was issued for 9/11 involvement.
