Revealed: Mueller's FBI Repeatedly Abused Prosecutorial Discretion

The media and establishment DC who reflexively defend Mueller haven’t explained how they came to trust him so completely. It’s a question worth asking given the bumpy historical record of Mueller’s tenure as FBI director from 2001 to 2013.

It is curious how some reputations get built up if it serves political purposes to build them up. It happens all the time. Even respecting our founders, for instance. But I don't buy it. It's not the persons of Madison, Jefferson or Washington that made our country great (that word!); it's their ideas, which were not their ideas exclusively. You could say that about Mueller too, if he were only following the law.

Jefferson's big idea was hypocrisy - bang on about liberty, and keep on driving those slaves. And in one case combine the two - bang that slave. What a fine fellow he was.

One of GWB's failings was his reluctance to fire people who deserved it, such as the heads of the intelligence agencies after 9/11, such as Mueller.
