Mueller Investigation Rocked By Calls For Special Prosecutor On Uranium One
Barack Obama and the Clintons’ sale of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russians is tearing apart the Robert Mueller investigation, considering Mueller’s active role in the scheme and the clear evidence forcing him to focus on Democrats like Tony Podesta for possible criminal charges.
The New York Times published an article Friday headlined “Alternative Narrative Emerges in Conservative Media as Russia Inquiry Widens.”
The piece by Jeremy Peters cites Big League Politics’ recent work to explain how independent media has pushed back on the mainstream news narrative that President Trump’s team colluded with the Russians, and effectively flipped the narrative to focus on the real scandal: the Clintons’ uranium-smuggling and Mueller’s massive conflict of interest in the case related to that uranium-smuggling.
With Fox News and other outlets on the Right, including Breitbart News (where Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One story in 2015), shining a light on the Democrat dirty dealings, it becomes nearly impossible for Team Mueller to focus merely on a politically-motivated witch hunt against Trumpists. Sure, Paul Manafort was indicted for long-ago alleged white-collar crimes, but Tony Podesta, whose Podesta Group represented Uranium One, had to resign from his namesake firm.
In the information war, truth — even if it emerges from the so-called alternative press — still counts.
Mueller was ordered to hand-deliver the uranium to the Russians:

Mueller’s FBI also looked the other way on a bribery plot connected to Uranium One, ensuring that the deal went through. An individual from Mueller’s law firm, a WilmerHale immigration lawyer and former Islamic Society official, was quietly appointed to the Treasury Department by Obama, where the person was key in approving the Uranium One deal, and also the sale of the cargo terminal at Port Canaveral to an Arab firm partnered with the Russians.
Now, President Trump’s close adviser Roger Stone is calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the Uranium One scandal. Such a move by Trump would likely put the final nail in the Mueller case’s coffin. Stone believes it would also finally cement Trump’s standing as an untouchable, unimpeachable, firmly-embedded commander in chief.
President Trump has the capability to appoint a special prosecutor. Why doesn’t he just do it? In the game of 4-d chess that the president has been forced to play all year, Trump has made some big mistakes.
Jeff Sessions recusing himself from any “Russia” investigations was a big mistake, or perhaps even a betrayal. Would Eric Holder ever have recused himself from Obama’s scandals? Of course not. Trump’s legal bulldog knocked himself onto the sidelines early, setting up the scenario by which Mueller became special counsel. It was a blunder, or, again, maybe a betrayal. Trump was not happy about it.
Firing James Comey was another mistake. That move was pushed for by Jared Kushner. Trump’s much-savvier political adviser Steve Bannon hated the move. It inflamed Deep State tensions at just the moment when it seemed like the “Russia” case was fading away. Comey had nothing on Trump, and was not bright enough to represent a real threat to the president. Once Comey got fired, bloodthirsty Democrats started calling for an obstruction of justice charge against Trump — even though that charge would have no merit, since Comey admitted under oath that Trump did not obstruct justice.
So now we have Mueller. All these months later — a full year after Trump won the election — the “Russia” hoax is on its last legs. Since James Clapper considered influencing a Supreme Court justice to block Trump’s inauguration back in January, the Russia hoaxers’ fortunes have gone up and down. It’s time to knock the case out for good.
That the Democrats were the ones colluding with Russia, and then blaming Trump to deflect from their own wrongdoing? That’s the real story. It’s a tactic often used by high-profile law firms. The effectiveness of that tactic hinges on the hoaxers’ ability to control narrative and public perception.
But the pro-Trump side is winning the narrative war now.
Here’s Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton calling for the Mueller case to be shut down.
Does President Trump have the courage to finally save himself and bring down his enemies once and for all?
The narrative, finally, is on his side.
