With former special counsel Robert Mueller scheduled to testify Wednesday (I’ll believe it when I see it), Steve Hilton on FOX News Sunday night brought up something that SOMEBODY on either the House Judiciary Committee or the Intelligence Committee ought to ask about, even though Mueller would surely wiggle out of answering. Here’s the background:

Almost a year ago, Hilton first reported on an intriguing past financial connection between Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey. Comey, then a former deputy attorney general, was hired by defense behemoth Lockheed Martin to be its general counsel (top attorney) and senior VP at the same time Mueller was serving as FBI director. Soon after Comey was hired at Lockheed Martin, Mueller’s FBI gave them a $300 million contract to develop a program called “Sentinel.” Then, in April of 2008, Mueller’s FBI gave Lockheed Martin a $1 billion contract to develop a sophisticated biometric surveillance program called “Next Generation Identification System.”

(Note: a little digging on our part turned up a story that may or may not be related to this cozy relationship. As it turns out, work was delayed on the NGI project because IBM went to the Government Accountability Office and protested the awarding of the contract to Lockheed Martin. They reportedly resolved the conflict when IBM was hired as a subcontractor. The story also mentions that Lockheed Martin ranks #1 on the list of largest federal government contractors.)

Of course, we already know that Comey leaked the content of personal notes he’d made of his “impressions” of a conversation he’d had with President Trump to the New York Times via a professor friend –- who had also had an unusual working relationship with Comey at the FBI –- with the admitted goal of triggering a special counsel investigation that he knew would almost certainly be headed by Mueller. (The notes were the property of the Justice Department and not his to leak.) Since Comey would of necessity be a witness in the “Trump/Russia” investigation, the conflict of interest in having Mueller as chief investigator is beyond the pale, but it happened anyway. (Of course, Rod Rosenstein had a similar conflict in supervising the investigation, but that happened anyway, too.)

 

Hilton’s facts came from the Government Accountability Institute, which had just published their book ‘COMPROMISED: How Money and Politics Drive FBI Corruption.” As Gregg Jarrett summed it up, “Comey stole government documents...he then leaked them to the media to trigger a special counsel, who just happens to be his longtime friend, partner and ally, to investigate the guy who fired Comey.” Hilton observes that they both “made millions off the surveillance state that they themselves promoted.”

Apparently, they both shared the same mentor: (drum roll, please )...Eric Holder.

Jarrett says Mueller and Comey have been “thick as thieves” for decades, and he doesn’t mince words about what we're dealing with. “James Comey,” he told Hilton, “strikes me as the most unscrupulous, devious, unprincipled person ever to hold a high position in the government,” someone who “has perpetrated the biggest hoax in modern American history.”

In his thoroughly underwhelming press conference a few weeks ago, Mueller tried to maintain that the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion that a sitting President couldn’t be indicted had denied him the option to recommend charges, implying that he might have wanted to do so. Because Attorney General Bill Barr had already made it clear that Mueller had said otherwise –- three times, in front of multiple witnesses –- Mueller had to issue a statement later that same day admitting that he had misspoken.

To quote Steve Hilton, “What Mueller did at his press conference wasn’t justice. It wasn’t the rule of law. It was a smear –- a false statement designed to cause material harm to President Trump, delivered with malice.” Hilton suggested that Trump should sue Mueller for defamation. I don’t know if that’s even feasible when you’re the President of the United States –- for example, can Trump sue Rep. Ilhan Omar for calling him a racist and a fascist? –- but he certainly was defamed. Of course, if Trump sued everyone who defamed him, the courts would be backed up for about a hundred years.

Mueller clearly is still trying to set up the President for impeachment. As the Wall Street Journal said, Mueller wants “an impeachment inquiry to charge Donald Trump with obstructing an investigation that wasn’t obstructed into a conspiracy that didn’t exist.”

Maybe Trump can’t sue for defamation, but Hilton suggests that both Mueller and Comey should be be the subjects of an investigation into their business dealings. He wants to see an investigation into the Lockheed Martin contracts and also Mueller’s client relationships at the law and lobbying firm Wilmer-Hale, where it appears Mueller cashed in after leaving his post as FBI director.

It’s highly unlikely that Mueller will answer questions about this, as he is reportedly limiting his answers to the report he’s already issued. (Aside: So why even hold the hearing? Attorney General Barr is correct in his suspicions –- Mueller’s testimony is just for the spectacle.) As I’ve said, he’s likely not to appear on Wednesday at all; he and Jerrold Nadler can easily come up with some fake excuse. Mueller has good reason for being a reluctant witness.

Considering this session of Congress adjourns on Friday, a Mueller no-show would pretty much put an end to the possibility of his testifying at all. But if they do have the hearing and he does show up, some lingering questions about him and Comey could at least be read into the record by the likes of ranking Republican Doug Collins.

Here’s the link to Steve Hilton’s original report on the Mueller-Comey connection. These two are prime examples of what he calls Washington “swamp creatures.” They may no longer be lurking inside the bureaucracy, but who knows how many other proteges Eric Holder had?

    I always wondered about the Lockheed Martin deals. I don't think Mueller will want to talk about it. What I would like to know is how Mueller could be a special prosecutor and a witness. He had a meeting with Trump the day before he was appointed about the Comey firing, a definite conflict of interest. If the Republicans did this the media would be unhinged. Mueller and his team need to be held accountable for the collusion scam perpetrated on the American People..

    2020 election with some trepidation and a lot of hope. Your missives give me

    Mr Huckabee.
    On your article referencing the "Trump Heatwave", and some placing the blame on air conditioning.
    A/C is to blame but not in the way most would say.
    Most would say it is because of refrigerant being released into the atmosphere, or due to the carbon footprint print from power generating plants.
    Not so!
    It is solely due to A/C units removing hot air from inside a building and placing it outdoors where the global warming thermometers are located!!
    Makes as much sense as anything else I have heard anyway.
    I hope you don't mind my deplorable redneck attempt at humor.

    Oh man do i smelll a dirt rat. Yes, a HUGE investigation needs to be done on Comey and Mueller to see how far back thier corruption goes. Every thing they touch seems to be rotten. The Guy from CT or Huber need to get a bunch of investigators and go back as far as need to. I so far, and I am sure you and Greg Jarrett will agree, see nothing but corruption and dirty dealing in their past. Maybe the indictments have what is needed. we'll see. No, the mueller session is a big waste. It accomplishes nothing. Nadler says Trump has committed high crimes. What high crimes? name them jerry the @#$%^
    You can't even name a misdemeanor DT has committed without making a fool of yourself. What doesn't Nadler go home and shut UP!

    Mueller will refuse to answer and nadler will control the spectacle so as to deflect any questions which seek to expose what the 'crats want to keep covered. Fortunately for this nation the other Clinton is not in the White House to keep inestigators off the trail. It's all going to be exposed. Even MSNBC, cnn. npr and the congressional 'crats won't be able to keep this thing under wraps.

    Considering the nefarious nature of the Democratic Party (the Left), it might be worth the time to make sure that all Republican voters can still vote Republican this coming 2020 election. The self-righteous moral majority in this welfare state (California) are certainly, less than open minded. They may think that they are egalitarian, but this holds only for those who agree with them.

    Appears this great nation has become so corrupt with crooked politicians that there can no longer be any prosecution for their treasonous and unlawful behavior. They all seem to have a criminal past of some sort and would certainly spill the beans on each other if necessary to get even. So they protect each other by being silent. look at the Clintons and all the corruption they are involved in and no trials, no convictions. If the average citizen did these things they would be hung by rope or injected with by by serum. The list is throughout the government and until there is a majority of honest politicians there will be no justice. Money and power will continue to be the goal of our corrupt government politicians. And to a degree this corruption goes all the way down to our local branches of government. I look and listen to Wisconsin's governor and shudder at his decisions and goals for the future of this state. How these people get elected and are allowed to govern with such dishonest behavior tells me how far down the ladder we have gone in this once great nation. But if one reads the Bible, especially revelations, it is all right on course with what is written. I'm thinking the Rapture is around the corner and then justice will be done!

    Gregg Jarrett hit the nail on the head with his description of Comey.

    The whole Mueller thing was bogus and as a taxpayer I want a refund of the money spent.The Dems & RINOs can share the cost and direct payments can be made via their payroll. Most are much richer than what their salaries provide for, so just take their full salaries until paid back. Zero... the same amount they gave to the (there's no) border crisis for months.

    There's more to the Comey/Mueller relationship than meets the eye. I guarantee it.

    I think an investigation into the Obama administration should take place as well. Obama, Eric Holden, Hillary, as well as key people of the FBI. Key Congress representivies should be investigated as well, Pelosi, Schumer Waters & others. The corruption in our government needs to be revealed in both parties.

    You mentioned that Trump probable can't sue for defamation. Most of the comments about Trump are just opinions not backed up by facts. But one of the Democratic congressmen (I forget his name but it begins with S) said that Trump colluded with Russia and he had evidence that he did. If he does not have any evidence maybe Trump could sue him for defamation. I am sure that Trump would be happy to give any money he won to the veterans.

    Years ago, I maintained then as Now ; that to save America the Head of the Snake must be cut off. That means we; (Republicans);

    If people care more about Hating Trump, than they care about “Deaths in Benghazi and At Fast And Furious”, And lies like, “ if you like your doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor”; America is already done for bc it is Fundamentally Transformed into A Third World Country ! Remove the Heads!!
    Remove the Head’s of the Snake.. Obama, Holder,The Clinton Mafia who’s body count has been reported as high as 100 Souls!
    Remove,Soros, Lynch, Comey and THE Corrupt Democratic Arms at The FBI, Justice Department, including Corrupt Justices making up Law as they go to Obstruct OUR Elected President; Working for Americans,( NOT ILLEGALS); without a Salary-and done more in two years than any other
    President prior in-spite of Democrats Collusion with Russia, to “STEAL a Presidential Election”.

With former special counsel Robert Mueller scheduled to testify Wednesday (I’ll believe it when I see it), Steve Hilton on FOX News Sunday night brought up something that SOMEBODY on either the House Judiciary Committee or the Intelligence Committee ought to ask about, even though Mueller would surely wiggle out of answering. Here’s the background:

Almost a year ago, Hilton first reported on an intriguing past financial connection between Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey. Comey, then a former deputy attorney general, was hired by defense behemoth Lockheed Martin to be its general counsel (top attorney) and senior VP at the same time Mueller was serving as FBI director. Soon after Comey was hired at Lockheed Martin, Mueller’s FBI gave them a $300 million contract to develop a program called “Sentinel.” Then, in April of 2008, Mueller’s FBI gave Lockheed Martin a $1 billion contract to develop a sophisticated biometric surveillance program called “Next Generation Identification System.”

(Note: a little digging on our part turned up a story that may or may not be related to this cozy relationship. As it turns out, work was delayed on the NGI project because IBM went to the Government Accountability Office and protested the awarding of the contract to Lockheed Martin. They reportedly resolved the conflict when IBM was hired as a subcontractor. The story also mentions that Lockheed Martin ranks #1 on the list of largest federal government contractors.)

Of course, we already know that Comey leaked the content of personal notes he’d made of his “impressions” of a conversation he’d had with President Trump to the New York Times via a professor friend –- who had also had an unusual working relationship with Comey at the FBI –- with the admitted goal of triggering a special counsel investigation that he knew would almost certainly be headed by Mueller. (The notes were the property of the Justice Department and not his to leak.) Since Comey would of necessity be a witness in the “Trump/Russia” investigation, the conflict of interest in having Mueller as chief investigator is beyond the pale, but it happened anyway. (Of course, Rod Rosenstein had a similar conflict in supervising the investigation, but that happened anyway, too.)

 

Hilton’s facts came from the Government Accountability Institute, which had just published their book ‘COMPROMISED: How Money and Politics Drive FBI Corruption.” As Gregg Jarrett summed it up, “Comey stole government documents...he then leaked them to the media to trigger a special counsel, who just happens to be his longtime friend, partner and ally, to investigate the guy who fired Comey.” Hilton observes that they both “made millions off the surveillance state that they themselves promoted.”

Apparently, they both shared the same mentor: (drum roll, please )...Eric Holder.

Jarrett says Mueller and Comey have been “thick as thieves” for decades, and he doesn’t mince words about what we're dealing with. “James Comey,” he told Hilton, “strikes me as the most unscrupulous, devious, unprincipled person ever to hold a high position in the government,” someone who “has perpetrated the biggest hoax in modern American history.”

In his thoroughly underwhelming press conference a few weeks ago, Mueller tried to maintain that the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion that a sitting President couldn’t be indicted had denied him the option to recommend charges, implying that he might have wanted to do so. Because Attorney General Bill Barr had already made it clear that Mueller had said otherwise –- three times, in front of multiple witnesses –- Mueller had to issue a statement later that same day admitting that he had misspoken.

To quote Steve Hilton, “What Mueller did at his press conference wasn’t justice. It wasn’t the rule of law. It was a smear –- a false statement designed to cause material harm to President Trump, delivered with malice.” Hilton suggested that Trump should sue Mueller for defamation. I don’t know if that’s even feasible when you’re the President of the United States –- for example, can Trump sue Rep. Ilhan Omar for calling him a racist and a fascist? –- but he certainly was defamed. Of course, if Trump sued everyone who defamed him, the courts would be backed up for about a hundred years.

Mueller clearly is still trying to set up the President for impeachment. As the Wall Street Journal said, Mueller wants “an impeachment inquiry to charge Donald Trump with obstructing an investigation that wasn’t obstructed into a conspiracy that didn’t exist.”

Maybe Trump can’t sue for defamation, but Hilton suggests that both Mueller and Comey should be be the subjects of an investigation into their business dealings. He wants to see an investigation into the Lockheed Martin contracts and also Mueller’s client relationships at the law and lobbying firm Wilmer-Hale, where it appears Mueller cashed in after leaving his post as FBI director.

It’s highly unlikely that Mueller will answer questions about this, as he is reportedly limiting his answers to the report he’s already issued. (Aside: So why even hold the hearing? Attorney General Barr is correct in his suspicions –- Mueller’s testimony is just for the spectacle.) As I’ve said, he’s likely not to appear on Wednesday at all; he and Jerrold Nadler can easily come up with some fake excuse. Mueller has good reason for being a reluctant witness.

Considering this session of Congress adjourns on Friday, a Mueller no-show would pretty much put an end to the possibility of his testifying at all. But if they do have the hearing and he does show up, some lingering questions about him and Comey could at least be read into the record by the likes of ranking Republican Doug Collins.

Here’s the link to Steve Hilton’s original report on the Mueller-Comey connection. These two are prime examples of what he calls Washington “swamp creatures.” They may no longer be lurking inside the bureaucracy, but who knows how many other proteges Eric Holder had?

    I always wondered about the Lockheed Martin deals. I don't think Mueller will want to talk about it. What I would like to know is how Mueller could be a special prosecutor and a witness. He had a meeting with Trump the day before he was appointed about the Comey firing, a definite conflict of interest. If the Republicans did this the media would be unhinged. Mueller and his team need to be held accountable for the collusion scam perpetrated on the American People..

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for your articles and your refreshing insight of
    the craziness I read each day regarding our President. I look forward to the
    2020 election with some trepidation and a lot of hope. Your missives give me
    a more positive outlook.

    Mr Huckabee.
    On your article referencing the "Trump Heatwave", and some placing the blame on air conditioning.
    A/C is to blame but not in the way most would say.
    Most would say it is because of refrigerant being released into the atmosphere, or due to the carbon footprint print from power generating plants.
    Not so!
    It is solely due to A/C units removing hot air from inside a building and placing it outdoors where the global warming thermometers are located!!
    Makes as much sense as anything else I have heard anyway.
    I hope you don't mind my deplorable redneck attempt at humor.

    Oh man do i smelll a dirt rat. Yes, a HUGE investigation needs to be done on Comey and Mueller to see how far back thier corruption goes. Every thing they touch seems to be rotten. The Guy from CT or Huber need to get a bunch of investigators and go back as far as need to. I so far, and I am sure you and Greg Jarrett will agree, see nothing but corruption and dirty dealing in their past. Maybe the indictments have what is needed. we'll see. No, the mueller session is a big waste. It accomplishes nothing. Nadler says Trump has committed high crimes. What high crimes? name them jerry the @#$%^
    You can't even name a misdemeanor DT has committed without making a fool of yourself. What doesn't Nadler go home and shut UP!

    Mueller will refuse to answer and nadler will control the spectacle so as to deflect any questions which seek to expose what the 'crats want to keep covered. Fortunately for this nation the other Clinton is not in the White House to keep inestigators off the trail. It's all going to be exposed. Even MSNBC, cnn. npr and the congressional 'crats won't be able to keep this thing under wraps.

    Considering the nefarious nature of the Democratic Party (the Left), it might be worth the time to make sure that all Republican voters can still vote Republican this coming 2020 election. The self-righteous moral majority in this welfare state (California) are certainly, less than open minded. They may think that they are egalitarian, but this holds only for those who agree with them.

    Appears this great nation has become so corrupt with crooked politicians that there can no longer be any prosecution for their treasonous and unlawful behavior. They all seem to have a criminal past of some sort and would certainly spill the beans on each other if necessary to get even. So they protect each other by being silent. look at the Clintons and all the corruption they are involved in and no trials, no convictions. If the average citizen did these things they would be hung by rope or injected with by by serum. The list is throughout the government and until there is a majority of honest politicians there will be no justice. Money and power will continue to be the goal of our corrupt government politicians. And to a degree this corruption goes all the way down to our local branches of government. I look and listen to Wisconsin's governor and shudder at his decisions and goals for the future of this state. How these people get elected and are allowed to govern with such dishonest behavior tells me how far down the ladder we have gone in this once great nation. But if one reads the Bible, especially revelations, it is all right on course with what is written. I'm thinking the Rapture is around the corner and then justice will be done!

    The sad part about all of this is NO ONE in this whole mess, Hillary, Clapper, Comey et al, will ever see jail time. It’s all for naught but good theater for all of the media people. What a shame.

    Gregg Jarrett hit the nail on the head with his description of Comey.

    The whole Mueller thing was bogus and as a taxpayer I want a refund of the money spent.The Dems & RINOs can share the cost and direct payments can be made via their payroll. Most are much richer than what their salaries provide for, so just take their full salaries until paid back. Zero... the same amount they gave to the (there's no) border crisis for months.

    There's more to the Comey/Mueller relationship than meets the eye. I guarantee it.

    I think an investigation into the Obama administration should take place as well. Obama, Eric Holden, Hillary, as well as key people of the FBI. Key Congress representivies should be investigated as well, Pelosi, Schumer Waters & others. The corruption in our government needs to be revealed in both parties.

    President Trump has said many times that he and Mueller had a falling out over a business deal. I always wondered what that was about. Hmmmm... Maybe this was it?

    Mystery that any group of voters would want such gross practices being committed with their tax dollars.

    You mentioned that Trump probable can't sue for defamation. Most of the comments about Trump are just opinions not backed up by facts. But one of the Democratic congressmen (I forget his name but it begins with S) said that Trump colluded with Russia and he had evidence that he did. If he does not have any evidence maybe Trump could sue him for defamation. I am sure that Trump would be happy to give any money he won to the veterans.

    this is just another stall tactic to keep our president from getting things done.. i hope it is not fruitful lets get ahead of this and get things done

    This whole affair with Trump, Mueller and the rest of the Democratic cabal is so outstandingly corrupt, I have little hope any justice will ever be brought.

    Years ago, I maintained then as Now ; that to save America the Head of the Snake must be cut off. That means we; (Republicans);
    are at nothing less than at “WAR with Both Foreign and Domestic Enemies”.
    If people care more about Hating Trump, than they care about “Deaths in Benghazi and At Fast And Furious”, And lies like, “ if you like your doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor”; America is already done for bc it is Fundamentally Transformed into A Third World Country ! Remove the Heads!!
    Remove the Head’s of the Snake.. Obama, Holder,The Clinton Mafia who’s body count has been reported as high as 100 Souls!
    Remove,Soros, Lynch, Comey and THE Corrupt Democratic Arms at The FBI, Justice Department, including Corrupt Justices making up Law as they go to Obstruct OUR Elected President; Working for Americans,( NOT ILLEGALS); without a Salary-and done more in two years than any other
    President prior in-spite of Democrats Collusion with Russia, to “STEAL a Presidential Election”.
    Political Correctness, Allowing the Invasion of our Nation, Allowing 600,000 and more yearly deaths from Drugs, State of Lawlessness where
    MS13 gangs cut the hearts out of their enemies, as Democrats SEEK POWER !

    Per Big League Politics, Comey's Professor Friend Daniel Richman to whom he leaked his comments to lived in the same building as GPS Spy Natalia Veselnitskaya who worked out of The Law Office of Cozen O'Connor which is run by an anti-Trump former Obama administration official. She is the same person who set up the meeting with Don Jr. It was reported that she had dinner meetings with Fusion GPS Chief Glenn Simpson the day before the Tower Meeting.

    So this relationship and dealings are a conflict of interest at least? Are they prosecutable and will they be? Since what you say is true I suspect so and will be looking for it.
