Why the Justice Department Kept This Mueller Scope Memo a Secret
amgreatness.com ^ | May 8, 2020 | Adam Mill

Now that the Justice Department belatedly has admitted that the entire investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was a sham, it is time to turn to the bigger picture.

On August 2, 2017, acting attorney general (for all matters involving the Trump-Russia collusion hoax) Rod Rosenstein signed a memorandum expanding the jurisdiction of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Almost a year after Mueller released his report, the expanded jurisdiction memorandum remained a secret until Wednesday. A third jurisdiction memorandum remains secret.

It is unclear why the Department of Justice says it kept this memo secret until now or why it continues to keep the third memo secret to this day. But the real reasons are obvious: When one compares the matters Rosenstein told Mueller to investigate with what was already known at the time, we can easily deduce that the questions being “investigated,” were already answered by available evidence.

The Mueller “investigation” was never intended to discover new evidence. It had two, largely successful, objectives: To delay accountability for the effort to derail the peaceful transfer of power to the duly-elected president, and to continue that interference as long as possible. As I wrote here, it was obvious as early as 2018 that the Justice Department had turned the Russian collusion investigation into a “puzzle designed never to be solved.”

Rosenstein used the secrecy of the sham investigation to blunt and parry legitimate oversight from the House until after January 2019 when House Intelligence Committee chairman, Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), could use his gavel to end all House inquiries into the hoax.

Let’s review key figures cited in Rosenstein’s second “scope” memo authorizing Mueller’s expansive probe.

When Mueller was appointed S.P. he went on TV and lied.

He said he was going to find who was colluding with Russia to interfere in the US election.

Instead he went after POTUS Trump and not the Hildabeast paying for the Steele dirt.

Rosenstein.

Those who described this creep as “oily” and “a weasel” were being too kind.

If you folks took serious note of the deteriorated condition of Bob Mueller during the Trump Russian hearings he was demented, confused and did not have a clue as to where he was and what he was saying!!! Biden and Mueller are not wrapped too tight...they both belong in an old age home for mentally restricted aging seniors..period!!!

Someone made a good gif of Rod Rosenstein with a sickly smile on his face, smirking while testifying and put it next to Peter Strzok smirkying and testifying, with the text asking, “WHY DO THEY BOTH ACT THE SAME?” Creepy men.

I believe it was a coup attempt; they already knew the President was innocent, they wanted to remove him illegitimately and bury the evidence, like the scams and frame ups of innocent people they’d been doing for years.

He does look like he’s straight out of central casting to play the part of a rat-like con man.

I don’t know because Nancy Pelosi was acting demented until challenged for her speakership, then suddenly she acted normal again, and as it looks like she’s headed for prosecution, she once again is acting demented.

Biden has been a block head forever. But now that Bursima/Ukraine investigations are going on, he can’t tie his shoe laces. Yes, he’s an idiot - but I think these higher ups play and “incompetence” when they hear footsteps coming closer.

I also want to see the part that was blacked out on the current memo - I think it mentions Trump.

I guess "coel" differs a bit from "caelum". I hated Latin when I studied it more than fifty years ago. :)

"I believe it was..."

It was/is from the eyes of FR at the get-go.

If prosecutions do not begin before the election, Trump and the US are toast.

If Barr does not produce public indictments by September, then Barr is part of the deep state.

Four years is too long for the "Wheels of Justice" for treason.

There's room for them in New York City's nursing homes.
