Is Robert Mueller okay with the Democrat demands for an unredacted report?
Considering the parameters of the special counsel probe, abuses of the FISA process, use of intel-asset human ‘lures’, and classified information leaks should’ve fallen within the broad guidelines which Deputy AG Rosenstein laid out for Robert Mueller.
For clarity, Rosenstein ordered (bold, underline emphasis added):
(a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed to serve as Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice.
(b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).
(c) If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.
(d) Sections 600.4 through 600. l 0 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations are applicable to the Special Counsel.
‘Any links’ (regarding Russian involvement) SHOULD INCLUDE the revealed use of CIA and FBI human lures (Halper, Mifsud, ‘Greenburg’) put into play by those agencies;
Likewise, ‘any matters’ should’ve included ‘lure’ revelations; use of a dirt-dossier as an unfounded, illegal basis for FISA warrant apps; exposed leaks of classified probe data.
During ANY credible probe, those illegal, unethical acts would’ve been discovered.
Which means they should be a part of the Mueller report.
If they aren’t, WHY they aren’t is as important to know as the other illegal acts noted.
And, if they are…why weren’t any prosecutions of such ‘…federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters’ initiated by the much-vaunted Mueller team?
Mueller does indeed have some ‘splainin’ to do, either for not including the discovery of lures, leaks, and FISA abuse…or for not initiating prosecutions of such illegalities.
One way or the other, he’s now ensnared in the process.
