Robert Mueller has a brewing problem on his hands.
His Russia collusion investigation is facing a credibility crisis.
And a top FBI official just blew the whistle on the one thing that could bring him down for good.
Much has been made of Mueller’s relationship with former FBI Director James Comey.
The two have a relationship going back to the Bush administration during a controversy over a domestic spying program.
Mueller and Comey have even been described as brothers-in-arms.
And now he is retraining his sites on impeaching Trump over obstruction of justice for firing Comey since his Russia collusion investigation has proven to be a bust.
But how can he fairly investigate this matter when he is so closely tied to Comey?
Critics agree that this taints Mueller’s investigation.
Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom said Mueller should have recused himself.
“The former assistant director of the FBI wonders who investigates the investigators in the wake of former Trump administration national security advisor Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI and agreeing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
“Bob Mueller should have never been offered nor accepted the job as special counsel as he has a huge conflict of interest,” Jim Kallstrom tells Breitbart News. “He should have recused himself.”
Not only do observers describe Mueller and the man he recommended to replace him as FBI director, James Comey, as close or even best friends, but the special counsel pursues an investigation heavily involving the bureau he once led. How one maintains detachment in leading a team that includes numerous anti-Trump partisans in a probe involving one’s close friend and the former bureau for which Mueller served as director goes unexplained.”
Kallstrom also ripped the investigation for possibly employing the fake news Fusion GPS dossier to obtain warrants to spy on Trump officials.
Breitbart also reports:
“Other problems Kallstrom sees include the means by which investigators obtained information and what constituted probable cause to obtain it.
“The Obama administration apparently, had the advantage of using electronic surveillance, collecting information on the Trump campaign,” Kallstrom explains. “That collection, in my view, may be found to be unlawful.”
At the very least, one administration conducting surveillance on the opposition party looking to replace it strikes as unusual if not unprecedented. In 1972, for instance, President Richard Nixon’s political team relied on former agents of the FBI and CIA to gather intelligence on the Democratic Party.
If the surveillance and investigatory methods prove unlawful, Kallstrom notes that this puts Mueller in an awkward position of looking into his close friend and perhaps the bureau that both men once led.
“If they used the phony dossier as the predicate for the FISA order they obtained, that could be a huge problem,” Kallstrom tells Breitbart News. “If they knew the information was phony, that is a felony. If they did not know it was phony, they were incompetent.”
It’s clear that Mueller’s investigation is a sham.
The collusion hoax has completely collapsed and Mueller has been exposed as a naked anti-Trump partisan whose job is to produce grounds for impeaching Trump by hook or by crook.
And Kallstrom raises two other devastating critiques of Mueller.
First, he has a clear conflict of interest.
Second, he used evidence that could have been obtained under false pretenses.
This will only increase the calls for Mueller’s political fishing expedition to be shut down immediately.
