Is it really just a witch hunt? Mueller lawyers buy LAWSUIT insurance so they don’t get sued by probe targets

(National SentinelSpecial counsel: In another sign that the Trump campaign/Russia “collusion” story is quite possibly the biggest political hoax since climate change, reports noted that some of the lawyers and investigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller have purchased insurance protecting them from retaliatory lawsuits.

If this investigation was such a slam-dunk and not a witch hunt like President Donald J. Trump has described, why would they feel compelled to do this?

As reported by The Daily Caller:

Department of Justice investigators purchased liability insurance to guard themselves against potential retaliatory lawsuits brought by the subjects they’re investigating as part of the Russia probe.

The Department would cover any legal fees incurred in the course of duty. However, a number of investigators opted to purchase extra protection as the probe moves further into examining President Donald Trump’s finances and those of his associates, a source familiar with the investigation told CNN.

The investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election led by special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly expanded into examining possible financial crimes unrelated to Russian election interference.

The news comes on the heels of a report yesterday by The Wall Street Journal (based on a leak, of course) that Mueller has empaneled a grand jury, which set the media world abuzz and speculated additional wild claims on the salivating, unhinged Left that Trump’s impeachment is just around the corner.

In fact, as former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, who specialized in national security cases, said the empanelment of that grand jury — while indicating Mueller is conducting a criminal and not a counterintelligence investigation — may wind up producing nothing:

[T]he fact that there is a criminal investigation does not mean charges are imminent, or indeed that they will ever be filed. There are virtually no limits on the investigative powers of the grand jury. Under our law, a grand jury may conduct a probe simply to satisfy itself that no crimes have been committed. That is to say, there is no evidentiary threshold that must be crossed before a grand jury can begin investigating. Contrast that with, for example, a search warrant or an eavesdropping warrant; those investigative techniques may not be used unless a court has first been satisfied that there is probable cause to believe a crime has been committed.


The principal advantage of the grand jury for prosecutors is the ability to issue subpoenas to compel testimony and the production of documentary or other physical evidence. No investigation of any complexity can be advanced without this capacity.

The fact that some of Mueller’s prosecutors are of the mind to purchase some extra legal protection, in addition to what they are already given by the Justice Department, is — we think — compelling.

  1. It’s time to shut this investigation down and then deal with the BS that follows.

  2. Dear Washington, Be prepared for a general uprising. Expect US.
    Sincerely, White America

  3. Because it is a boggus investigation that is harrassing inocents.

  4. It is a witch hunt and those that believe Trump would be a part of a conspiracy to win the presidency, don’t know him. Truth be known, he didn’t even want to win, nor expected to. It was to his chagrin that he did so!

  5. With no evidence whatsoever of any illicit activity by any of Trump’s team, during the many months of the false blather of the “Russia” matter by corrupt politicians and main media liars*, it appears that Mueller, just like Comey, is an unprincipled partisan weasel. The continual media lies about Trump is ungodly (Romans 13), and it may just spur Trump to continue even more his great hard work, but it may also be filling the cup of God’s wrath until God intercedes USA politics big time with His own judgments. (*liberal democrats hiding by projecting their own crimes upon conservatives / republicans)

  6. If it’s standard type insurance- it won’t cover a dime for any actions taken before the insurance was taken out. So they’re likely a day late and a dollar short in purchasing it.

Have something to say?
