In 2008 the U.S government was forced to pay $4.6 million to settle a lawsuit filed by Steven Hatfill. The NYT headline was as follows:
Representative Rush Holt, a New Jersey Democrat whose district was the site of a postal box believed to have been used in the attacks, said he would press Robert S. Mueller III, director of the F.B.I., for more answers about the status of the case. … Dr. Hatfill subpoenaed Washington journalists to try to learn which federal officials had spoken to the news media about the case against him in possible violation of federal privacy laws. … Toni Locy, a former legal affairs reporter for USA Today who wrote several articles about the case, was held in contempt of court, facing fines of up to $5,000 a day from Judge Reggie Walton over her refusal to name her sources…
The price tag to the tax payerfor the failed investigation was $100 million dollars and five years of wasted work. The FBI under Mueller pursued the case against Hatfill through ridiculous and aggressive methods according to Carl M. Cannon of RealClear Politics:
…what evidence did the FBI have against Hatfill? There was none, so the agency did a Hail Mary, importing two bloodhounds from California whose handlers claimed could sniff the scent of the killer on the anthrax-tainted letters. These dogs were shown to Hatfill, who promptly petted them. When the dogs responded favorably, their handlers told the FBI that they’d ‘alerted’ on Hatfill and that he must be the killer.
I can’t even imagine the hell Mr. Hatfill was put through. If a pattern is emerging, it’s not a mirage. Mueller (Comey and others) have been involved in several “bungled” cases…Ruby Ridge, Enron, and Republican Ted Stevens…Stevens narrowly lost his re-election bid as a result. His prosecutors repeatedly withheld exculpatory evidence. The conviction was voided by U.S. District Court Judge Emmett G. Sullivan, who called it the” worst case of prosecutorial misconduct he’d ever seen.” And then there’s Scooter Libby:
Comey named Patrick Fitzgerald, his close personal friend and godfather to one of his children, to the role of special counsel. Mueller, Comey, and Fitzgerald all knew the whole time that Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the leaker. Yet they set things up so Fitzgerald would aggressively investigate the Bush administration for three years, jailed a journalist for not giving up a source, and pursued both Karl Rove and Scooter Libby. … (Libby) was rung up on a process charge in part thanks to prosecutorial abuse by Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald encouraged a witness to give false testimony by not providing exonerating evidence to her and Libby’s attorneys.
Election meddling and politics is at the heart of these cases as it is in the Russia collusion probe. But other case played out much differently than the investigation into Mr. Hatfill, Scooter Libby, and others. Sandy Berger was caught red handed stealing secret documents from the historical archive during the 911 Commission. He destroyed evidence that should have been included in that investigation and then lied about it. We’re all pretty much up to date on the un-prosecuted crimes of HRC.
Politics and the same deep state players have been involved in these cases to one degree or another. The goal to discredit or destroy Republicans while protecting Democrats has become too egregious t ignore or dismiss as paranoia or conspiracy theory. It’s time for the truth to come out and it’s well past time for guilty players to be gone! Mr. Mueller should close up shop, turn off the lights, and retire.
