Not only has special counsel Robert Mueller’s year-long legal witch hunt to impeach President Donald Trump not uncovered any criminal activity by the president – but experts say Mueller may have used the presidential probe to conceal his own law-breaking shenanigans.
Left-wing legal analysts say Mueller may have to face the music for breaking federal law.
What’s more, Mueller’s incompetent indictment is falling apart, as he tried to slap charges against an organization that does not even exist.
Mueller’s legal woes go back to 2009, when he still served former President Barack Obama as director of the FBI.
He and deputy director Andrew McCabe recruited a Russian aluminum magnate to help rescue a former FBI agent captured by Iran.
That oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, was allegedly linked to organized crime. But he agreed to spend $25 million of his own money on a secret mission to locate an American intelligence agent.
The mission worked and Deripaska did Mueller a huge favor – even if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ultimately blew the deal.
Then FBI agents tried to lean on Deripaska as part of the infamous “Steele Dossier,” compiled by the dirtiest D.C. firm Fusion GPS.
When asked if Trump colluded with Russia, he “laughed,” said Deripaska’s U.S. lawyer, Adam Waldman.
“He told them in his informed opinion the idea they were proposing was false. ‘You are trying to create something out of nothing,’ he told them.”
Mueller went on to indict former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort over his business ties to… none other than Deripaska.
Here’s where it gets murky: Mueller never revealed how he begged Deripaska for help back in 2009 – or how the Russian oligarch helped the FBI, or him.
After federal agents stormed Manfort’s home, Mueller personally seized everything related to Deripaska – and put it all under seal.
Liberal legal scholars say Mueller may be guilty of a conflict-of-interest, since he didn’t mention their cozy relationship.
Mueller may have been trying “to avoid the kind of transparency that is really required by the law” by leaving Deripaska out of the indictment, said Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz.

Mueller could face legal action for even approaching an alleged Russian crime boss in the first place, according to a rabid-left legal activist.
Melanie Sloan, who worked for former President Bill Clinton and Senator Chuck Schumer, said, “It’s possible the (FBI’s) arrangement with Mr. Deripaska violated the Antideficiency Act, which prohibits the government from accepting voluntary services.”
So, Mueller may be trying to sweep everything under the rug in this investigation. How convenient!
“If the operation with Deripaska contravened federal law, this figure could be viewed as a potential embarrassment for Mueller,” said Jonathan Turley, a respected liberal professor of constitutional law at George Washington University.

“The question is whether he could implicate Mueller in an impropriety.”
The strain of knowing he could face prison time himself has driven Mueller to the edge of a breakdown – and possibly destroyed his case.
Facing pressure to produce something related to Russia, Mueller indicted 3 companies and 13 Russian individuals for allegedly trying to sway Americans against voting for Hillary.
The problem is, according to testimony in a federal courtroom, at least one of the groups didn’t even exist at the time!

Inside a D.C. federal district court on May 9, the judge asked lawyer Eric Dubelier if he represented all 3 firms being indicted – including a group called “Concord Catering.”
“That company didn’t exist as a legal entity during the time period alleged by the government,” Dubelier told U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey, according to the court transcript.
“Your Honor, is I think we’re dealing with a situation of the government having indicted the proverbial ham sandwich” – a play on the observation that the grand jury’s legal bar is so low, “you could indict a ham sandwich.”

It also accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of compromising the “integrity of the DOJ” by authorizing Mueller to prosecute “a case that has absolutely nothing to do with any links or coordination between any candidate and the Russian Government.”
When firms allegedly tied to the Russian mafia accuse you of ethics problems, it’s time to hang it up.
Robert Mueller may have spent more than a year breaking the law, indicting phantom companies, and putting national secrets in peril – all to settle the Democrats’ political score against the our Republican president.
