Mueller may have a Conflict of Interest … Leads directly to a Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska (VIDEO)
MUELLER HAS HIS OWN RUSSIAN PROBLEM …
From John Solomon of The Hill, Special counsel Robert Mueller appears to have his own Russian problem and his name is Oleg Deripaska. In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent. So why does a Russian oligarch spend $25 million of their own money unless there was something expected in return and a quid pro quo?
Update: Now we find out that 3 FBI agents visit Deripaska in NYC and tell him that they believe Russians are colluding with Trump through Manafort. It is reported that Deripaska laughed and told the FBI agents that there is no way they were colluding. One wonders if this info was made available to the FISA courts?
The Hill’s John Solomon explains on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service.
But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.
In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.
Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.
The Levinson mission is confirmed by more than a dozen participants inside and outside the FBI, including Deripaska, his lawyer, the Levinson family and a retired agent who supervised the case. Mueller was kept apprised of the operation, officials told me.

They said FBI agents courted Deripaska in 2009 in a series of secret hotel meetings in Paris; Vienna; Budapest, Hungary, and Washington. Agents persuaded the aluminum industry magnate to underwrite the mission. The Russian billionaire insisted the operation neither involve nor harm his homeland.
“We knew he was paying for his team helping us, and that probably ran into the millions,” a U.S. official involved in the operation confirmed.
One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirmed.
Deripaska’s lawyer said the Russian ultimately spent $25 million assembling a private search and rescue team that worked with Iranian contacts under the FBI’s watchful eye. Photos and videos indicating Levinson was alive were uncovered.

TIC, TOC …
Last night on Hannity, he interviewed investigative reporter Sara Carter, former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka and Judge Jeanine Pirro. As she has been doing for months now, Sara Carter provided amazing content. Sara stated that according to her sources, McCabe may have asked FBI agents to change their 302′s, the interviews with witness. If this is true, this is obstruction of justice and he will be fired.

The FBI Launches New Clinton Foundation Investigation Into Any Pay-to-Play Politics or Other Illegal Activities (VIDEO)
NOW FOR THE REAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORRUPTION …
The shoe might finally have dropped on the Clintons’. The Hill is reporting that the Justice Department has launched a new into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. A spokesperson for the Clinton’s has called the investigation a sham. However, as John Solomon writes, for years, “news media from the New York Times to The Daily Caller have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” It is obvious from the Hillary Clinton email investigations that the Clinton’s received preferential treatment from the Obama DOJ and FBI in how that was handled. Why wouldn’t we think the same of this? What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose as well. Let’s have an independent prosecutor investigate the Clinton Foundation and her private email server and have it be an unlimited budget, open ended investigation while having all of the investigative team be Trump supporters and anti-Clinton folks. Go for it.

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.
FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.
One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE FBI AND DOJ BECOME POLITICALLY WEAPONIZED …
You really need to listen to this, what happens when those who investigate need to be investigated? We are now beginning to understand what they meant by having an “insurance policy” against a Trump election.
NOW THEY FINALLY THINK THAT MUELLER HAS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST? HE HAD ONE WHEN HE WAS NAMED THE SO-CALLED INDEPENDENT SPECIAL PROSECUTOR …
According to The Hill, a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Survey is out that shows that a majority of Americans believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest. 54% responded that the “relationship” between the two amounts to a conflict of interest, which includes 70% of Republicans, 53% of independents and even 40% of Democrats. Really, how long have we been saying Mueller has a conflict of interest? It has been proved that the FBI and DOJ had a bias against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton. The Mueller special counsel was supposed to uncover collusion between Trump and the Russians. However, all we have learned is that there was collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign, Hillary/Obama, Uranium One and the Russians, the Russian dossier/Hillary/FBI, and the FBI involved in possible election meddling by the FBI, Be very careful what you ask for Democrats, you may not like the truth.
So much for the impeccable reputation of being a Boy Scout
A majority of polled voters say special counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest because of his past ties to former FBI Director James Comey, according to the latest Harvard CAPS-Harris survey.
When asked if Mueller has a conflict of interest “as the former head of the FBI and a friend of James Comey,” 54 percent responded that the “relationship” between the two amounts to a conflict of interest, including 70 percent of Republicans, 53 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats.
“The special counsel has serious perception issues as a clear majority now see him as having a conflict of interest,” said Mark Penn, co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey.
In the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey, a plurality of voters, 36 percent, said Trump and his allies are getting harsher treatment from the special counsel than Clinton and her aides received during the FBI investigation into her handling of classified material. Twenty-five percent said both parties are getting the same treatment, 24 percent are unsure and 15 percent said the president is getting more lenient treatment.
Comey cleared Clinton of wrongdoing and one of her top aides, Cheryl Mills, received an immunity deal during the investigation. Mueller’s probe so far has resulted in guilty pleas from former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as former campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, both of whom are cooperating with the special counsel. Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and one of his top aides, Richard Gates, face a litany of serious charges pertaining to alleged financial crimes.
