  • Has Mueller's investigation become desperate job security?

    Had this interesting theory come up in conversation. As the Mueller investigation pretty much strikes out in every field, is Mueller continuing his efforts out of desperate job security? Mueller was so partisan in how he handled himself that it is clear he is on the left wing payroll. Which leads to the question of whether this investigation has become a shield for his career. As it became increasingly obvious that he was a partisan not interested in justice but an agenda, once this ends he is a political dead man walking. Trump would be well within his right to see to the termination of his employment then. He would be within his right to terminate him now, only Dems will squeal "obstruction of justice" if he does while the investigation is ongoing, even though the investigation has become a farce. So is the strategy then to keep the investigation going in perpetuity, even if he is reduced to researching Trump's ancestors for signs of collaboration with the Kievan Rus, simply because that is the only thing keeping his head off of the chopping block?

    He's stalling in the hopes that a worse scandal will take some of the heat off. Pretty good bet where politics is concerned.

      Really?

      What conspiracy theorist website did that come from?
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

        Mueller's crew is caught in the web of their own lies, and they can't get out.
        Being a gang of cut-throats it is only a matter of time before enough of them jump ship to make the evidence against them irrefutable... except to all the Frankenstien's Demsters out there that just stagger to whatever tune the DNC calls.

        I would not be overly shocked if one of them pulls a pistol on Trump when he is walking to the podium for the next State of the Union Address.

          Geez, dude. I hope not. But, I'll have to agree and yes, I wouldn't be surprised either. These folks aren't rational bad guys, after all.

            Seems that is the fate of all special prosecutors.

            Come to think of it, isn’t job security THE key role of all government bureaucracies? Can you name a single government department or agency that announced “job done” and closed itself? At least special prosecutors do eventually sunset.

              And what 'lies' are those? The people who are lying repeatedly are the group of sycophants and incompetents of the Trump administration, led by Trump himself.

                ...Has Mueller's investigation become desperate job security?...
                Mueller doesn't need the job and he has no appearance of being desperate.

                  If Mueller takes this path, he's very desperate...
                  Dershowitz: I Worry Mueller Is Going ‘Toward Obstruction of Justice and That Would Create a Constitutional Crisis’

                  by IAN HANCHETT 24 Jan 2018

                  On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz stated he’s worried that Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s investigation is moving towards obstruction of justice, which “would create a constitutional crisis.”

                  Dershowitz said, “I worry that it’s toward obstruction of justice and that would create a constitutional crisis. If the president were to be charged with obstruction for simply exercising his constitutional authority, firing Comey, telling Comey not to investigate Flynn, those are all within the president’s constitutional authority. The other place it may be going is toward collusion. But collusion is not a crime. I would think that the special prosecutor should limit himself to matters that are criminal, and thusfar, I have not heard evidence to suggest that any crimes were committed in or near the Oval Office.”

                  [...]

                  [T]he great worry is that because he doesn’t have anything really, really substantial, he may go after obstruction of justice, which would create a constitutional crisis.”

                  [...]

                  Indicting the President would not only trigger a constitutional crisis, it would violate DOJ policy...

                  The indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions.

                  § 600.7 Conduct and accountability.

                  (a) A Special Counsel shall comply with the rules, regulations, procedures, practices and policies of the Department of Justice. He or she shall consult with appropriate offices within the Department for guidance with respect to established practices, policies and procedures of the Department, including ethics and security regulations and procedures. Should the Special Counsel conclude that the extraordinary circumstances of any particular decision would render compliance with required review and approval procedures by the designated Departmental component inappropriate, he or she may consult directly with the Attorney General.

                  (b) The Special Counsel shall not be subject to the day-to-day supervision of any official of the Department. However, the Attorney General may request that the Special Counsel provide an explanation for any investigative or prosecutorial step, and may after review conclude that the action is so inappropriate or unwarranted under established Departmental practices that it should not be pursued. In conducting that review, the Attorney General will give great weight to the views of the Special Counsel. If the Attorney General concludes that a proposed action by a Special Counsel should not be pursued, the Attorney General shall notify Congress as specified in § 600.9(a)(3).

                  (c) The Special Counsel and staff shall be subject to disciplinary action for misconduct and breach of ethical duties under the same standards and to the same extent as are other employees of the Department of Justice. Inquiries into such matters shall be handled through the appropriate office of the Department upon the approval of the Attorney General.

                  (d) The Special Counsel may be disciplined or removed from office only by the personal action of the Attorney General. The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies. The Attorney General shall inform the Special Counsel in writing of the specific reason for his or her removal.

                        Mueller is following orders :if ordered, he would prosecute his own mother .

                            Trump is on the Nixon path...except that he isn't as smart as Nixon was.
