Special counsel Robert Mueller just double-crossed President Trump.
As lead counsel of the investigation into illegal connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, Robert Mueller has a certain amount of leverage in the political world and knows how to use it to his advantage.
Mueller is often accused of spearheading the Deep State against Trump — but who he just appointed as head of the investigation will shock you.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has appointed the FBI official who oversaw the Hillary Clinton email probe to investigate the Trump case.
Peter Strzok will now be managing the Russia probe. Strzok was one of two U.S. officials who interviewed Clinton during the investigation into her email scandal — and was one of the individuals who let her walk free.
The Daily Caller reported:
Special counsel Robert Mueller has picked the FBI official who oversaw the Hillary Clinton email investigation to manage the investigation into any illegal connections between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
According to CNN, Mueller tapped FBI section chief Peter Strzok to manage the probe. Strzok was one of two U.S. officials who interviewed Clinton on July 2 as part of the federal investigation into classified information found on her private email server.
Strzok interviewed Clinton along with Justice Department official David Laufman.
Three days later, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that charges would not be filed against Clinton for mishandling classified information found on her server.
Comey and the FBI have come under heavy criticism from both Democrats and Republicans over the handling of the Clinton email case. Democrats were upset that the investigation went forward at all. Republicans believed that the bureau caved to political pressure to not charge Clinton.
According to CNN, Strzok helped start the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. That investigation reportedly began as the Clinton probe was ending — in July.
Mueller, the FBI director under the Bush administration, was revered by conservatives as a man of integrity.
But now, Mueller has declared war on the Trump administration, as he also recently hired an incredibly biased legal team to defer to in the Russian probe.
Earlier this month, the Daily Caller reported several members of the legal team were top Clinton-donors:
Mueller has hired 15 attorneys in total so far and 13 of them have been publicly identified. The Washington Post reported Wednesday on their names and past political donations. Records show that seven of the 13 attorneys have donated in federal elections, and all of them gave to Democrats. A total of $60,787.77 from the attorneys have been given to Democratic candidates, including Trump’s former opponent Hillary Clinton.
Do you believe Robert Mueller is sabotaging the Trump-Russia probe?
