Pressure building on Mueller to RECUSE himself from Trump probe after Uranium One fallout

There is much to still sort out and questions to be answered, but it seems clear Mueller is too compromised to continue in his role.

(National SentinelRussia Hoax: New pressure is being put on special counsel Robert Mueller to recuse himself from his investigation of alleged “collusion” between President Donald J. Trump and the Russian government during last year’s election after it has been learned the FBI and Justice Department had been politicized under the Obama administration.

Mueller was director of the FBI when the bureau got wind of racketeering and bribery among Russian operatives and U.S. nuclear industry officials, as the Kremlin worked to secure additional uranium for itself.

But, according to reporting by The Hill, the FBI failed to pursue prosecution of the crimes and instead remained silent as the Obama administration approved the sale of Uranium One to Russia, and with it one-fifth of all strategy U.S. uranium.

In addition, the FBI had uncovered evidence that Russians and others with interests in the Uranium One sale were funneling money in the form of kickbacks, gratiuity and donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton while the latter was Barack Obama’s secretary of state and had a role in approving the sale. In all, reports noted that $145 million flowed into the Clinton Foundation.

As further noted by The Wall Street Journal:

For anyone who cares to look, the real problem here is that the FBI itself is so thoroughly implicated in the Russia meddling story.

The agency, when Mr. Mueller headed it, soft-pedaled an investigation highly embarrassing to Mrs. Clinton as well as the Obama Russia reset policy. More recently, if just one of two things is true—Russia sponsored the Trump Dossier, or Russian fake intelligence prompted Mr. Comey’s email intervention—then Russian operations, via their impact on the FBI, influenced and continue to influence our politics in a way far more consequential than any Facebook ad, the preoccupation of John McCain, who apparently cannot behold a mountain if there’s a molehill anywhere nearby.

Which means that Mr. Mueller has the means, motive and opportunity to obfuscate and distract from matters embarrassing to the FBI, while pleasing a large part of the political spectrum. He need only confine his focus to the flimsy, disingenuous but popular (with the media) accusation that the shambolic Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

There is much to still sort out and questions to be answered. But just based on what has been reported thus far — much of it leaked for what are no doubt also political reasons — indicates that Mueller should never have been appointed to look into anything having to do with Russia and potential ‘collusion.’
