Part of Mueller's job (since all of this is related to the Russian investigation) will be to find ANYTHING done that was illegal and bring a prosecution. I look forward to it.

The FBI (at this point) is considered "political" -- I think a big part of his job is to rehabilitate the Agency he ran for so many years and get to the bottom of whatever has been going on.

While Mueller does all that - President Trump can get back to Taxes and cleaning up Government.
Except he can't. He's been marginalized. He's kryptonite to other Repubs now that there's a Special Counsel....NO ONE wants to have his picture taken with President Bonkers; not willing to be aligned with him. Agenda is DEAD.

Let's call this for what it is... a coup. The government has decided that the people can't make the decision who should lead the country and who should be elected. Its them against the rest of us. You people hooting and jumping thinking your side is winning are sorely deluded. They look down on you just as much as the rest of us, even more.

The Rule of Law is something trump and cons always talk about. Talk talk talk. But when the Rule of Law is invoked, it's a coup!?!?!?

Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton how many times.

The Clintons have been accused of so many things, murder, cover ups, incompetence, etc. I am not going to debate the validity of all the accusations BUT

overwhelmingly they have been investigated more times than Trump ever has been. He overstates his ability to be number one once again.

It's a coup. I don't like Trump and hated having to vote for him, but the alternative was... unthinkable. We're being looked down on like idiots. By idiots, that's the worst part. The people in DC are either greedy idiots, incompetent boobs, pushover weaklings or depraved head cases. The Russians hacked our election.... BS. Now the North Koreans were the ones behind that lame hacking.... BS. Our government has turned on us, we're all disenfranchised. All of us.

LOL, the DOJ and FBI have been corrupt, with few exceptions, since the George W. Bush administration. Don't you remember the illegal domestic wiretapping that went on while Robert Mueller was head of the FBI?

Bush Lets U.S. Spy on Callers Without Courts

Worse yet, when whistleblowers tried to expose the NSA and FBI's illegal activity they were often threatened in a manner straight out of the former Soviet Union playbook. For example, one-time NSA executive turned whistleblower William Binney was even interrogated at gun point by Mueller's FBI even though no formal charges were ever brought against him.

This short video tells the whole story for those who don't believe me. It was produced by Laura Poitras who was harassed COINTELPRO style while Mueller was FBI Director which seems to have pushed her to become a major activist as a result.

The U.S. became a Banana Republic under G.W. Bush and it's only gone down hill since.

I don't know if it is the greatest, but yeah, definitely a waste of time by a Congress that is unwilling to actually do their job and improve this country. They rather spend time on a memo-to-self by a presidential appointee or a random piece of countless intelligence shared with allies.

Hey Congress, fix the damn budget!

All this lawyer can do is look at everything the NSA, CIA and the FBI have already looked at, that brought them to the conclusion, NO COLLUSION..


Bet you didn't know, this special council works for the same law firm representing Manafort. LOL!

Or as the president would tell Mr. BentBow - WRONG!

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/17/u...stigation.html


As a special counsel, Mr. Mueller can choose whether to consult with or inform the Justice Department about his investigation. He is authorized to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,” according to Mr. Rosenstein’s order naming him to the post, as well as other matters that “may arise directly from the investigation.” He is empowered to press criminal charges, and he can request additional resources subject to the review of an assistant attorney general.

Seems pretty broad to me.
