pathetic that they did not follow the money now admitted by one of the investigators. and pathetic they did not spell out obstruction of justice. what do you expect by Mueller a life long republican.

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel ‘could have done more’ to hold Trump accountable

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel ‘could have done more’ to hold Trump accountable


Mueller ultimately concluded he could not prove a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government to influence the last presidential election. He drew no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice — in part because of a Justice Department legal opinion that a sitting president cannot be indicted, combined with concerns over fairness, because if he faced no indictment, Trump could not defend himself in court. Attorney General William P. Barr and then-Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein said ahead of the report’s public release that they evaluated the case themselves and determined Trump could not be charged with obstruction.

Weissmann condemns Barr, White House attorneys and others for enabling a “lawless” president. He confesses that the office never overcame a key challenge: “the president’s power to fire us and to pardon wrongdoers who might otherwise cooperate.”

Weissmann is critical of Mueller for not stating plainly that he had concluded Trump obstructed justice, which Weissmann said the evidence showed. Weissmann said in an interview with The Washington Post that he told Mueller he would have stated that conclusion in the team’s final report.

“Director Mueller’s decision was to not make that conclusion, and by the way, I would have done it,” Weissmann said. “I told him why I would have done that.”

Weissmann said that while he believed it remained possible for Trump to be charged after he leaves office, he was noncommittal on whether he should be.

“I would want to know from the president or anybody else who you were focused on . . . ‘please tell me why we are factually or legally wrong but what you want us to consider,’ ” Weissmann said. “You want to hear from the defense and see what you’re missing, and then you need to make the decision, assuming you got through all of that, whether it’s really the right thing for the country at that point.”

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/doj-s-relentless-pursuit-has-andrew-mccabe-talking-about-john-durham/ar-AAKZ1ve

Quote:

One such pursuit is special counsel John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation, which fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe brought up as he appeared alongside CNN anchor Pamela Brown on Friday to comment on the revelation that the Trump-era Justice Department seized data from at least two House Intelligence Committee Democrats and reporters as part of a leak investigation — a matter which is now under review by the DOJ inspector general.


Both appeared to be of the same opinion that the Trump administration was abusing law enforcement to target political adversaries, and Brown said she is "bracing" for the next big disclosure to rock the media landscape. She asked, "Who else was targeted? Who are the others?"

In response, McCabe talked about his personal experience, casting himself as being the victim of an unprecedented retaliatory campaign. That's when he mentioned Durham's review.

"It's the relentless pursuit of these cases despite no factual results, right? Despite unproductive investigations. And look, that's been my own experience. I've been under investigation since January of 2017, right? It's one investigation after another. I guess if you count John Durham, then maybe I still am," he said.

"It is the relentless pursuit of retaliation against perceived enemies, and I don't think we've seen anything like that from the Justice Department or any part of this government prior to the Trump administration," McCabe added.



McCabe, who now has a job at CNN, was fired from the FBI in early 2018 and sued the Justice Department for wrongful termination, seeking to regain his job and back pay and claiming that former President Donald Trump was behind a scheme to force him out right before he was set to retire. A federal judge ruled in September that McCabe’s lawsuit should be allowed to move toward discovery, rejecting the Trump administration’s efforts to dismiss the case.

The Justice Department declined to pursue criminal charges against McCabe last year after Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in 2018 detailing multiple instances in which McCabe “lacked candor” with former FBI Director James Comey, FBI investigators, and inspector general investigators about his authorization to leak sensitive information to the Wall Street Journal that revealed the existence of an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe said in 2019 he was the one who ordered an obstruction of justice inquiry into Trump after the firing of Comey to ensure the Russia investigation would not "vanish in the night without a trace." He also told FBI investigators that former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sought Comey's advice on appointing a special counsel after playing a role in his firing.

The Russia investigation, which Trump derided as a "witch hunt," is now under review by Durham.

Durham began the review while serving as a U.S. attorney following an appointment by former Attorney General William Barr. Although Durham left his role as U.S. attorney, the Biden administration has let the inquiry continue.



Durham has so far secured only one guilty plea. FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who has since left the bureau, admitted to Durham in the summer that he falsified a document during the bureau’s efforts to renew its authority under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page by editing a CIA email in 2017 to state that Page was “not a source." Page denied any wrongdoing and was never charged with a crime. Clinesmith was sentenced to one year of probation and no prison time.

McCabe testified to Congress last year that he was “shocked and disappointed” by the “errors and mistakes” found in these FISA applications and expressed regret about signing off on one of the renewals. As of mid-April, McCabe and Comey were two top FBI officials whom Durham's team had not yet interviewed, according to the New York Times.
