Background of Mueller’s lead investigator confirms it is a witch hunt

Link here. The article provides some detailed information about the background of Robert Mueller’s chief investigator, Andrew Weissmann, that strongly illustrates the likelihood that Mueller’s investigation is the witch hunt.

Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted “victories” for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law.

Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.

Next, Weissmann creatively criminalized a business transaction between Merrill Lynch and Enron. Four Merrill executives went to prison for as long as a year. Weissmann’s team made sure they did not even get bail pending their appeals, even though the charges Weissmann concocted, like those against Andersen, were literally unprecedented. Weissmann’s prosecution devastated the lives and families of the Merrill executives, causing enormous defense costs, unimaginable stress and torturous prison time. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the mass of the case.

Weissmann quietly resigned from the Enron Task Force just as the judge in the Enron Broadband prosecution began excoriating Weissmann’s team, and the press began catching on to Weissmann’s modus operandi.

Links are provided to every one of Weissmann’s previous cases above. I clicked on each, and confirmed that not only did he intimidate witnesses, each one of these major prosecutions was thrown out because of aggressive improprieties. Weissmann approach is to find a crime, and prosecute it, whether any real crime occurred or not.

I post once again below the fold the Congressional testimony of “Republican” Robert Mueller when he was head of the FBI and was being questioned about the investigation he was leading into the Obama administration’s use of the IRS to harass its political opponents. It illustrates forcefully how much a tool Mueller was, and is, for the Democratic Party.

    Could the reporting on this Uranium One / Clinton / Obama / Mueller / Rosenstein / Andrew Weissman / Loretta Lynch actual real and big money documented through evidence corruption, collusion and national security violations actually get to where it needs to get?

    I think the first step has to be the firing of Jeff Sessions.

    Politics is thee dirtiest, filthiest, greediest and most corrupt game that human beings play.

    From the article: “Perjury is only that which differs from Weissmann’s ‘view’ of the ‘evidence’ — not the actual truth.

    Isn’t this exactly what happened to Scooter Libby? Someone else outed Plame, but Libby was the one convicted of “misremembering” differently than what someone else remembered. Libby was persecuted despite someone else having done the Plane outing.

    ken anthony,
    You mean like this speech?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYoAmvxyh1M (26 minutes; Bill Whittle: “How To Stop The Civilizational Collapse”)

    Every time the city of civilization falls, it doesn’t fall because the common soldier walks off duty up on the walls of the city; civilizations fall because some silk-robed [SOB] in the palace gets up at midnight because he’s bored and he’s suicidal and he’s got a death wish, and he opens the door to the barbarians, the barbarians come into the city and the city falls from within. …

    For the first time in human history the soldiers on the wall of the city can talk to each other. … We have things like the internet. … We have to start talking about virtue. We have to start doing the right things for the right reasons.

    Edward-
    good stuff.
    We are definitely lacking virtuous people. And that is the correct word, virtuous. They have zero morals, ethics, or religious based self-control or self-awareness, and as experience has shown us time and again, they are completely unrestrained by our legal-system.
    They have quite thoroughly, institutionalized their sociopathy into every aspect of our society to one degree or another. The darn criminals are running the prisons, the Patient’s are running the asylum’s, they’ve all become grotesque caricatures of themselves in some weird Orwellian-kakfa-esque psycho-drama, and then they have the nerve to lecture all us dumb rubes, relieve themselves on our legs in broad daylight and claim it’s raining, while they pick our pockets.

    on a lighter note–
