Then-senator Jeff Sessions offered wildly over-the-top praise for Robert Mueller when Mueller came up for a two-year extension as FBI director in June 2011, during the Obama administration. Sessions, who personally wanted Rod Rosenstein to be his top deputy during his tenure as President Trump’s attorney general, later recused himself from the “Russia” case, setting up Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.
“I would just say, Mr. Comey, that I share your respect for Mr. Mueller. When I was in the Department of Justice nearly fifteen years, if you’d taken a poll of the top three or four prosecutors in America, in terms of professionalism, experience, and judgment, and proven track record of important matters. And then later as a supervisor and leader, Bob Mueller would have been one of the tops, wouldn’t you agree?,” Sessions said to Comey, who was testifying on Mueller’s behalf. “I mean, he was universally recognized that way, was appointed by President, uh, Clinton I guess to the U.S. Attorney’s post in California?”
“And he had been United States Attorney in Boston…and then held high posts in the Department of Justice. But more than that, he tried a lot of cases personally. I mean, he knows how you have to prepare a case, and present a case. He knows your integrity is on the line every single day as a prosecutor, and I’ve always felt that President Obama — you know, I’m pleased that President Obama has seen fit to re-nominate him and I hope we can do that lawfully in a way that works…,” Sessions said before Connecticut Democrat Richard Blumenthal agreed with Sessions’ praise of Mueller.
At the very same hearing, conspirator James Comey went to bat for Mueller, as well.
“I know Bob Mueller very well, and believe that he is one of the finest public servants this nation has ever seen,” said Comey, who was then senior vice president and general counsel of the defense contractor Lockheed Martin.
“When I was deputy attorney general during those two years, I spoke to Bob Mueller nearly every day, and I watched as his remarkable combination of intellect and tenacity drove the FBI’s counterterrorism efforts. Because the director’s standards were so high, everybody’s work had to be better. His relentless probing, which was rooted in an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the enemy and our capabilities to respond to the enemy, rippled through the FBI and the rest of the national security community,” Comey said.

Fired former FBI director James Comey got cornered last week by House Republicans who clearly decided to up their game during his second closed-door testimony in front of the outgoing GOP majority on the Oversight and Judiciary Committees.
“I know on their way out they seem to be wanting to play defense now for the President and want to do everything in their power to bring doubt regarding the Mueller investigation,” said a shaken Democrat Elijah Cummings to a reporter, referring to the recently more-aggressive Republicans.
Here are Comey’s hallway remarks, in which he notably did not deny that he leaked classified information when he leaked his memos to the press.
James Comey’s friend, Columbia University professor Daniel Richman, leaked classified information that Comey gave him. During this leaking period, Richman was apartment-building neighbors with a partner at the law firm that strategized with Fusion GPS operative Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian plant who set up Don Jr. in Trump Tower.
“Yes, he is my neighbor,” Amy Wenzel, a partner at Cozen O’Connor, confirmed in a phone conversation with Big League Politics, confirming that they spoke. They live near each other in a Brooklyn high-rise.
Cozen O’Connor managing partner Howard Schweitzer is listed here on a DOJ form from an investigation into the breaking of lobbying laws by Russians trying to repeal the Magnitsky Act — which was just a front to get Russians in the room with Don Jr. It turns out that Natalia Veselnitskaya was actually operating out of the Cozen O’Connor offices.

Former FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith Gets Probation for FISA Warrant Fraud, Russia-gate Probe Ends with Nobody in Jail
The deep state wins again.
Former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith has been sentenced to 12 months of probation and 400 hours of community service after pleading guilty to tampering with an email that was used to get a FISA secret court warrant to spy on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Clinesmith pleaded guilty in August to “one count of making a false statement within both the jurisdiction of the executive branch and judicial branch of the U.S. government, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years and a fine of up to $250,000.” The courts let him off without the prison time.
No more indictments are expected as the Biden regime will shutter the investigation into Russia-gate. U.S. Attorney John Durham slow rolled the investigation at the behest of Attorney General Bill Barr to protect the deep state from any real culpability.
The reality is starting to set in for conservatives that they have been duped, and there will be no accountability for the illegal spying operation put into place against President Trump by holdovers from the Obama/Biden regime.
“If you look at the wrongdoing, the abuse of power that has taken place, people will feel very unsatisfied if only Clinesmith is charged,” said Curt Levey, who is president of the Committee for Justice.
“There are certainly people who should be held accountable and go to jail,” he added.
While some still hold out hope for Durham to charge Russia-gate conspirators, it has been obvious that his investigation was a sham for quite some time.
Big League Politics reported last year on how it was obvious that Durham and Barr were stalling in the lead-up to the presidential election, running out the clock in a deliberate fashion while duping Trump’s supporters:
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
“Well, [FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith] wasn’t arrested but they managed to arrest Stephen Bannon. The comparison and contrasting to me is just remarkable,” Fitton responded.
The levels of corruption are reaching Biblical levels in America, and traitors feel emboldened to commit intolerable acts against the American people in broad daylight. This is globalism. This is the Orwellian nightmare, and the situation will be worsening drastically under President-imposed Biden.
