Book: Special Counsel Mueller Did Exactly What Comey Accused Trump Of Doing

Former FBI Director James Comey in his Senate testimony Thursday accused President Donald Trump of giving him a “directive” to letting former Director of National Intelligence Michael Flynn go free from investigation. It was a major part of the reason Comey and Democrats hoped a special counsel would be appointed in the case, and one was. But that special counsel, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, was accused of doing exactly the same thing in a 2011 book in regards to the deaths of the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas.

Comey claimed the President privately told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” The former FBI head testified he took that as a directive from the President.

According to former Georgia Congressman Bob Barr, now special counsel Mueller said nearly the same thing to him during the 1995 Congressional investigation into the 1993 stand-off in Waco, Texas that resulted in the deaths of 76 members of the Branch Davidian cult.

Barr, writing in his 2011 book, “The Meaning of Is: The Squandered Impeachment and Wasted Legacy of William Jefferson Clinton,” recounted a phone call with Mueller, who was then working at the Justice Department, in which he asked Barr not to “go too hard on these guys.”

Barr recounts Mueller as saying, “Bob, don’t go too hard on these guys. We know most of them, and they’re good people.”

It went unnoticed at the time, as Mueller was out of government service when the book was written.

Mueller served as FBI Director from 2001 until 2013.

    We will never see the same rule of law being applied to the political class as is applied to everyone else as long as we continue to have swamp creatures investigating fellow swamp dwellers.

    Recall during the Clinton email scandal, everyone was was saying how much they trusted Comey would do the right thing, how he was a man of such unwavering integrity blah blah blah. We now know that was all a crock of shlt and I have a sneaking suspicion that Mueller is made up of the same scaly swamp material that Comey is. I’d bet Mueller speaks fluent alligator just as well as his protege Comey and this entire investigation is just a tactic to wear down the Trump Administration to delay the changes that candidate Trump had promised to deliver. I hope I’m wrong, but it seems to me that before there can be an investigation, there must first be evidence of a crime, and that has never existed. So either this is all a gigantic farce, or the powers that be are trying to cover up the crime of the century, that being the Obama Administration’s attempts to ensure a victory for Hillary to protect his legacy by illegally using the nation’s intelligence apparatus to undermine Trump. Now that would top Watergate!

    Comey i believe said IN his perception of the words ::SO e interpreted the words badly PERIOD As any friend of anyone who is presumed inocent before it is quilty , would be I hope he will be cleared after the investigation is over and lets not forget how fast CLINTON EMAILS were investigated as a MATTER and HOw long is draging this investigation with damage to Mr TRUMP and MR FLYIN NAME , with no results or proof he did anything wrong, but one thing, DID NOT mention one conversation or lied about it . SO no wonder COMEY was fired in light of his opinion about DONALD and in light of his behind the back actions ( leaks to the president enemy newspaper no 1) that in his words would be loyalty to the president
