Rep Louie Gohmert said that at the urging of other Republicans and some members of the press, he decided to chronicle all of the questionable acts Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been involved in during his career.
There must be a lot of them because when Gohmert was done the report was 48 pages long. He gave some examples of Mueller falsely convicting people he knew to be innocent. The most obvious case was a murder committed by FBI informant, Whitey Bulger’s gang and hung it on four innocent men.
The men were convicted in 1965. Two of the men died in prison and the other two spent decades in prison. A judge ordered them released and a second judge awarded the men and their families damages in the amount of $101 million dollars from US taxpayers. They were awarded the money when the judge discovered that Mueller sat on evidence that would have proven the men were totally innocent.
Gohmert says that Mueller plans on charging President on any charge he can even if he knows Trump is innocent as he has done many times before.
From the report:
Unfortunately, both Mueller and Comey were absolutely and totally convinced of the innocent man’s guilt. They ruined his life, his relationship with friends, neighbors and potential employers.

You’d think that any good FBI agent would have kicked these quacks in the fanny and found their dogs a good home. Or at least checked news accounts of criminal cases in California where these same dogs had been used against defendants who’d been convicted — and later exonerated. As Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times investigative reporter David Willman detailed in his authoritative book on the case, a California judge who’d tossed out a murder conviction based on these sketchy canines called the prosecution’s dog handler “as biased as any witness that this court has ever seen.”
Instead, Mueller, who micromanaged the anthrax case and fell in love with the dubious dog evidence, and personally assured Ashcroft and presumably George W. Bush that in Steven Hatfill, the bureau had its man…
Mueller didn’t exactly distinguish himself with contrition, either. In
2008, after Ivins committed suicide as he was about to be apprehended for his crimes, and the Justice Department had formally exonerated Hatfill – and paid him $5.82 million in a legal settlement ($2.82+150,000/yr. for 20 yrs) – Mueller could not be bothered to walk across the street to attend the press conference announcing the case’s resolution. When reporters did ask him about it, Mueller was graceless. “I do not apologize for any aspect of the investigation,” he said, adding that it would be erroneous “to say there were mistakes.”
Though FBI jurisdiction has its limitations, Mueller’s ego does not.
Mueller and Comey’s next target in the Anthrax case was Dr. Bruce Ivins. As the FBI was closing in and preparing to give him the ultimate Hatfill treatment, Dr. Ivins took his own life. Though Mueller and Comey were every bit as convinced that Dr. Ivins was the Anthrax culprit as they were that Dr. Hatfill was, there are lingering questions about whether or not there was a case beyond a reasonable doubt. Since Dr. Ivins is deceased
Gohmert also criticized Mueller on his “up or out” leadership style as the director of the FBI, claiming it forced experienced agents to move to Washington, DC, and “devastated” the bureau.
The Texas congressman also slammed Mueller over the “purging” of material about “radical Islam” under his authority as FBI head. This attitude, according to Gohmert, crippled the FBI’s investigation of the Tsarnaev Brothers before their deadly jihadist attack on the Boston Marathon.
“This guy has such an ego … you disagree with him, he wants to bury you. And, that, you get a glimpse of his personality,” Gohmert concluded about Mueller on Breitbart News Saturday.
