Trump should fire Mueller, suspend Rosenstein & Ohr, then order FBI – not Special Prosecutor – to criminally investigate FISA wiretap!

The Right Side

FBI Retired 

On the day following the firing of Andrew McCabe – something I advocated for – I began to imagine what I, as a FBI Special Agent for 28 years, would do. I wrote it as I thought it, so if it comes out as sort of a stream of thought – it approximates how I would tackle such a field of suspected criminality at the top of the US Department of Justice.

What some Republican congressman and senators don’t seem to understand is this: the FBI didn’t break the law, neither did the DOJ. A handful of corrupt people, who happen to work for same, did!

Would you want congress or the senate condemned because of the “numerous” senators and congressman we, the FBI arrested, tried, convicted and sent to prison? Of course not, even though the number of congressional members sent to prison, as a percent of sitting members, (about 650), far exceeds the percentage of DOJ (Justice and FBI)  sent to prison. (13,000 Agents in the FBI alone!)

And before you run off at the mouth that all McCabe did was tell a lie. I guess you forgot about the FISA warrants that McCabe [and other FBI agents and DOJ officials] signed that misled the FISA court and Comey said  “were unverified”. That’s a serious felony by itself!

Some of the statements that our senators and congressman, who claim to be attorneys, but who, obviously, never read the US Code, are mind boggling, especially coming from people who are supposed to make the laws!

Would you want the AG to appoint a special legislative body every time we found some members of congress to have been found “untrustworthy”? I guess not!

You cannot investigate crime by committee, period! But members of congress know that! The special prosecutor idea has, shall we say, been less than successful.

A political “herd” of lawyers, lead by another special lawyer, cannot find their own ass with their own hands. Just look at the current debacle! What Congress allowed Mueller and Rosenstein to do to a loyal, decorated, retired military general like Mike Flynn is a disgrace! When a federal judge calls for all the evidence in a plea agreement that, in and of itself, says a lot about the probability of severe, improper actions by the prosecution, investigators, the court or all three.

Oh, I almost forgot, the Judge, Rudolph Contreras, who accepted Flynn’s plea, and “then” recused himself “after” taking the plea, is a personal friend of FBI Peter Strzok!

I will bet anything that Mueller’s proud conviction of General Flynn is going to be thrown out. When it is, the president must fire Mueller no matter what any Republican or Democrat says about anything. Then front Flynn enough money, in legal terms, to “sue the bastard”!

What some people don’t understand is that the president has shown extreme self control and patience by allowing Mueller and his head hunters free rein. President Trump has stayed out even though he could have done what many other presidents before him have done, like President Grant did with the first special prosecutor, and many other presidents like Clinton, Nixon and others did: And that is to fire the special prosecutor!

Remember this, there is not one word in the US Constitution about special prosecutors but there is quite a bit about the power of the president of the United States. I invite you to carefully read Article 2!

As for Bob Mueller, I believe he should be fired right now and Rod Rosenstein should be suspended, along with Bruce Ohr, pending criminal charges regarding the Carter Page illegal wire tap! If the new judge throws out the Flynn case, the President must fire Mueller and his entire team and turn everything over to the FBI!

The FBI is the only agency in the country that can handle all the subjects and violations these men committed, period. Do not appoint any other method of investigating or everyone will undoubtedly “walk”!

  • I have never seen this man (J. Gary DiLaura) on Fox News?? From what I read from all the previous reporting this man
    J. Gary DiLaura is the only person that makes any sense. The swamp is so wide spread which includes the media, democrats, republicans, FBI, DOJ, how the president will ever clean the swamp is beyond me.
    The only way is for the president to take complete control and keep every one accountable and if they don’t tow the line fire them. J. Gary DiLaura can see this very clearly from what I have read of his reporting.
    Now I understand why president ratings are so bad is because he has not really stepped up to the plate. He keeps hitting singles and doubles but never a home run. He promised to drain the swamp and it just has not happened. He must start with his own party because he has got some rogue individuals that are undermining his presidency.
    Finally we have someone (J. Gary DiLaura) who understands what is really happening , great article.
    Instead of running all over the country making these great speeches, stay home and get really serious about becoming a great president.
    This is what the people of America want.
