Mueller Speaks, Pulls Impeachment Stunt for British Empire Masters

May 29, 2019 (EIRNS)—With Attorney General William Barr traveling and Congress out of town, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller III took over the news cycle on May 29th by holding a press conference to dirty up the President with another series of cheap shots, slinking off the public stage without taking further questions. As LaRouche PAC and EIR have said over the past two years, this prosecutor of Lyndon LaRouche and Donald Trump is a snake, an amoral legal hitman for the Anglo-American intelligence apparatus which has largely infected our government since the end of World War II, and which Donald Trump has begun cleaning out.

With the countercoup beginning to unfold, the President has named the governments of the United Kingdom, Australia, and Ukraine, as appropriate objects of investigation together with the Obama White House and Obama’s intelligence chiefs; and has declassified the documents which the intelligence community considers their crown jewels, exposing them to criminal investigation and charges. Thus, the British and their American lackeys are desperate to get back to their “Russia! Russia! Russia!” war cry while continuing to undermine and smear the President and Attorney General Barr—who appear ready to completely expose their attempted coup, their attempt to take out an American President.

Mueller and his bosses are also, undoubtedly, wringing their hands at the widespread public recognition of former NSA Technical Director Bill Binney’s evidence that the alleged Russian hack of the DNC servers, allegedly resulting in WikiLeaks’ publications about the DNC and Hillary Clinton, never happened. This is, of course, the central claim of the Russiagate narrative and formed the bulk of Robert Mueller’s babbling today about the Russians launching a “concerted attack on our political system,” involving “multiple, systemic efforts to influence our election, which deserve the attention of every American”—citing the DNC hack and the WikiLeaks publications for these bogus propositions.

Otherwise, Mueller again attempted to fuel the Democrats’ impeachment drive with the declaration, “If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” The President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, immediately called out this weasel statement, stating that prosecutors are charged with making binary decisions, to charge or not to charge, and there is no constitutional provision for investigations, using the tools of grand juries, indictments, and compulsory process, in order to turn materials over to Congress for action. Nor does the Constitution countenance prosecutors having to “exonerate” defendants, since defendants are presumed innocent.

Mueller also said that he could not bring obstruction charges against the President because of a Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion saying that a sitting President could not be indicted.

Mueller’s taking explicit refuge in the Office of Legal Counsel opinion puts him in a direct confrontation with Attorney General Barr. Barr told Congress that both he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked Mueller three times if the OLC opinion was the reason for Mueller declining to reach a decision on obstruction of justice charges, and Mueller denied that the OLC opinion was behind his decision.
