Another take on the Mueller Report

Coleeen Rowley is a retired FBI special agent and division legal counsel whose May 2002 memo to then-FBI Director Robert Mueller exposed some of the FBI’s pre-9/11 failures, was named one of Time magazine’s “Persons of the Year” in 2002.

Coleen Rowley, Institute for Public Accuracy - he real issue that I and most other Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity care about is whether any real evidence exists proving Russia meaningfully interfered in the election (regardless of whether that interference was with Trump’s collusion or not). Trump himself should care about that since it insinuates he would not have won except for Russian interference and thus weakens his presidency. As always, Mueller relies without critical questioning or thought upon intelligence agencies’ specious ‘assessments’ similar to how he relied upon Colin Powell’s presentation of false ‘intelligence’ to the U.N. to help the Bush administration gin up their illegal and disastrous war on Iraq. There could be gaping holes in Mueller’s indictment of the 12 Russian GRU agents for hacking the DNC — and indeed independent forensic researchers have challenged some of the hacking evidence he used. Prosecutors like Mueller know they ‘can indict a ham sandwich’ (and indeed Mueller’s been wrong before on several big cases, including misidentifying the Anthrax killer). In this case Mueller could have been even more lax as he was virtually assured that it would be unlikely he would ever need to prove his allegations in court.

One of the greatest frauds of this whole investigation was the claim (never proven) that Russians hacked into the DNC server.

Forensics assessing the download speeds available to accomplish this prove these servers were not hacked. It was an inside job - easily downloaded onto a USB thumb or flash drive.

FBI took the word of DNC contractor Crowdstrike and NEVER inspected or examined the server. Since when does a criminal investigation operate like that?

When it's a political investigation!
