    Quite interesting - and not very known - information (however not for the "I-do-not-care-about-facts").

    Also in the comments underneath some more additional info about his many involvements in famous events.

    Wondering how the some "proven"schemes are repeating again:

    As I recall, the corporation that handled anthrax for government testing, sorry, I forget the name, had an office within a mile of that mailbox where the anthrax was mailed. Funny how the corporation handling the anthrax for the government was so close to the crime scene and no one thought to investigate or mention it. Mueller, on the job again.

    Keep digging...there are multiple sources that will confirm his past actions as a "fixer."

    "Mueller was chosen as Special Counsel not because he has integrity but because he will do what the powerful want him to do. Mueller didn’t speak the truth about a war he knew to be unjustified. He didn’t speak out against torture. He didn’t speak out against unconstitutional surveillance. And he didn’t tell the truth about 9/11. He is just “their man.”" ~ Coleen Rowley Ret. Special FBI agent

    That means you didn't read the "shallow article" or the hyperlink pertaining to that subject.

    Mueller was then appointed as chief investigator of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 in Scotland. The account Mueller produced was a flimsy story that accused a Libyan named Megrahi of coordinating placement of a suitcase bomb that allegedly traveled unaccompanied through several airports to find its way to the doomed flight. Despite Mueller’s persistent defense of this unbelievable tale, Megrahi was released from prison in 2009 and died three years later in Libya.

    With the Pan Am 103 case, Mueller was covering up facts related to some of the of victims of the bombing—a group of U.S. intelligence specialists led by Major Charles McKee of the Defense Intelligence Agency. McKee had gone to Beirut to find and rescue hostages and, while there, learned about CIA involvement in a drug smuggling operation run through an agency project called COREA. As TIME magazine reported, the likely explanation for the bombing, supported by independent intelligence experts, was that U.S. operatives “targeted Flight 103 in order to kill the hostage-rescue team.” This would prevent disclosure of what McKee’s team had learned. That theory was also supported by the fact that the CIA showed up immediately at the scene of the crash, took McKee’s briefcase, and returned it empty.
    From FBI archives 2003:

    FBI Director Robert Mueller, who headed up the investigation while Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, recently described the impact the case had on him personally:

    Few documentaries about the Lockerbie fake investigation can be found at aljazeera.com. Years ago I gave here links showing even the Scottish investigators in higher positions being upset by the interfering from outside and by fabricating the evidence...

    The G-Man Fights Back: Peter Strzok Zaps His Republican Inquisitors

    Yellow highlight is the mic drop moment. This guy gave republicans a real nose bleed today.

    In recent months, Donald Trump and some of his Republican supporters on Capitol Hill have seized on Peter Strzok—the senior F.B.I. agent who, in 2016, led the Bureau’s investigations of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail practices and of Russian interference in the Presidential election—as if he represented some kind of get-out-of-jail-free card for the President.Practically every day, Trump attacks Strzok on Twitter, depicting his role in the Russia probe as proof it was a “Witch Hunt” from the get-go. Last week, Republican officials from the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee questioned Strzok—pronounced “Struck”—for more than eleven hours in a private session. And on Thursday, the Republican members of the two committees sought to put him on the griddle before the cameras in a joint hearing, only to discover that messing with G-men can be dangerous. It was they and their President who got burned.

    On the face of things, Strzok was in an invidious position: having to defend a series of text messages he sent to the woman with whom he was having an affair—Lisa Page, an F.B.I. attorney at the time—in which he repeatedly bemoaned the prospect of a Trump victory and vowed it wouldn’t happen. After Trump took office, Strzok had been part of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russian interference in the election—but he was reassigned after Mueller found out about the texts. Trump and the Republicans have been crowing about these messages for months, and the South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy, the first Republican to get a crack at Strzok on Thursday, went straight to one from July 21, 2016, in which Strzok said, “Trump is a disaster. I have no idea how destabilizing his presidency would be.”

    Strzok was far from fazed, however. With his close-cut hair, sharp features, and self-confident bearing, he looked like Hollywood’s idea of a senior F.B.I. agent, and he seemed delighted to have his say in public. In his opening statement, which he read out slowly, in a firm voice, he had already effectively demolished the Republican theory of the case: that he was out to get Trump, and prevent him from becoming President. “In the summer of 2016, I was one of a handful of people who knew the details of Russian election interference and its possible connections with members of the Trump campaign,” Strzok said. “This information had the potential to derail and, quite possibly, defeat Mr. Trump. But the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind.”

    Not content with undermining the logic of his inquisitors, Strzok also dared to question their motivation, and even their patriotism, saying, “I understand we are living in a political era in which insults and insinuation often drown out honesty and integrity, but the honest truth is that Russian interference in our elections constitutes a grave attack on our democracy.” The Russian attack had been “wildly successful—sowing discord in our nation and shaking faith in our institutions,” Strzok continued. “I have the utmost respect for Congress’s oversight role, but I truly believe that today’s hearing is just another victory notch in Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart.”

    If this were a boxing match, the referee might well have declared a T.K.O. then and there. But Gowdy got his opportunity to land some blows, and he eventually focussed in on a late-night text exchange from August 8, 2016, in which Lisa Page wrote to Strzok, “Trump’s never going to become president, right?” Strzok replied, “No. No. He’s not. We’ll stop it.”

    Many of Trump’s supporters have seized on this message as a smoking gun. In the private hearing, Strzok testified that the ”We’ll” referred to the American people, not the F.B.I. As Gowdy questioned him, he repeatedly said the text needed to be presented in its proper context. Gowdy, who is an experienced tormentor of Democratic witnesses, declined to give him a chance to make such a presentation. But after a noisy intervention from the Democratic congressman David Cicilline, Bob Goodlatte, the head of the Judiciary Committee, who was chairing the hearing, made the fateful decision to grant Strzok more time.
    The text didn’t come out of the blue, Strzok explained. It was written late at night “off the cuff, and in response to a series of events that included then candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero, and my presumption, based upon that horrible, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be the President of the United States.”

    Strzok was referring here to Trump’s dismissive statements, on July 31, 2016, about Ghazala Khan, the mother of Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier who was killed by a car bomb in Iraq, in 2004. At the time, even some Republicans balked at Trump’s offensive comments. The text “was in no way, unequivocally, any suggestion that me, the F.B.I., would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process, for any candidate,” Strzok went on. And addressing Gowdy directly, he added, “So I take great offense and I take great disagreement to your assertion of what that was or wasn’t.”

    Strzok then turned his attention back to Goodlatte. His voice rising, he delivered a statement that may have been prepared but also appeared to come from somewhere deep inside him. It is worth quoting in full:

    I can assure you, Mr. Chairman, at no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took. Furthermore, this isn’t just me sitting here telling you. You don’t have to take my word for it. At every step, at every investigative decision, there are multiple layers of people above me—the assistant director, executive assistant director, deputy director, and director of the F.B.I.—and multiple layers of people below me—section chiefs, supervisors, unit chiefs, case agents and analysts—all of whom were involved in all of these decisions.


    They would not tolerate any improper behavior in me any more than I would tolerate it in them. That is who we are as the F.B.I. And the suggestion that I and some dark chamber somewhere in the F.B.I. would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me. It simply couldn’t happen. And the proposition that is going on, that it might occur anywhere in the F.B.I., deeply corrodes what the F.B.I. is in American society, the effectiveness of their mission, and it is deeply destructive.”

    As Strzok spoke, Gowdy leaned back in his chair, a cold look on his face. What was he thinking? He hasn’t served entirely as a White House patsy on the Russia affair. At one point, he suggested that Trump should start acting more like he is innocent. But Gowdy and other House Republicans invested what was left of their credibility in a conspiracy theory that was now blowing up in their faces, live on television. After Strzok said the words “deeply destructive,” there was a brief silence in the hearing room. Then there was a round of applause from the public gallery.

    Contrary to popular opinion most Americans don't get their news from late night comedy shows. The FBI agent in charge of the Clinton email scandal was informed that Mrs. Clinton sent 30,000 of her emails to a foreign entity but the FBI agent chose not to investigate and chose not to remember being told about it it because he didn't like Donald Trump.

    I would have said that the FBI, after reviewing the matter, decided not to investigate. Single agents don't make such calls, there's a process that's followed.

    Republicans have threatened to hold an FBI agent formerly assigned to Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in contempt for refusing to answer questions about the special counsel's probe during a heated Congressional hearing.

    If you watch the above video not the comedy version you will understand why the FBI agent is lying and did not investigate Mrs. Clinton's emails going to a foreign entity.

    The reason Americans get news from news outlets rather than comedy shows is that news outlets by law can't promote fake news where comedy shows do all the time as that is how they make money and get an audience. They make fun of people as opposed to reporting the news.

    CNN for example gets around this by running special segments of comedy shows mixed with the news so people with less than normal intelligence may get confused.
