The mainstream media has been telling us for years about what a good guy Robert Mueller is and how no one better dare question his integrity. And yet, we’ve seen some things from Mueller that suggest he’s not the most honest prosecutor in the world and it’s still difficult to understand why in the world this investigation is still going on when there’s been no evidence of collusion. No one is questioning Mueller’s military service but at the same time there’s no excuse for some of the stuff he has done to people like Mike Flynn.
When we learned that William Barr was going to be Trump’s attorney general most of us figured that Barr would do a better job with this Russia nonsense than people like Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein. The hope was that Barr would restore a little common sense into the situation and this Mueller thing would finally be resolved.
Based on some new information to us provided by Lindsey Graham and others, that might not be the case.
Turns out Mueller and Barr are pretty tight.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said after meeting with Barr, who led the Justice Department under President George H.W. Bush, that Barr has a “high opinion” of Mueller. Barr was spending most of Wednesday on Capitol Hill, meeting senators on the committee before his confirmation hearing next week.
Graham said Barr also told him about his longtime relationship with Mueller. Barr and Mueller worked together when Barr was Bush’s attorney general from 1991 to 1993 and Mueller oversaw the department’s criminal division. Graham said that the two men were “best friends,” that their wives attended Bible study together and that Mueller had attended the weddings of Barr’s children.
“So his opinion of Mr. Mueller is very, very high in terms of ethics and character and professionalism,” Graham said.
Obviously, it’s possible that the friendship won’t conflict with work. At the same time, these guys seem pretty chummy and it appears unlikely that Barr is too concerned about the many ways that Mueller has overstepped his investigation into the collusion hoax.
Barr seems like a good guy. Everyone raves about him. But, we can’t ignore the fact this guy is from the swamp. He worked for H.W. Bush. He’s been around D.C. a long time. That can be good and also bad. Trump had said when he appointed Barr that he had never met him. That could be problematic. He has hired a lot of swamp guys who were recommended by his advisers with no connection to the MAGA agenda. It has backfired in many ways. Hopefully, this won’t.
