Robert Mueller’s Botched Witch Hunt Investigations - Including the Anthrax Attacks

Let’s evaluate just how Mueller ran his 2nd most important investigation as FBI Director, shall we?.

In September 2011, an entity began mailing anthrax through the USPS, hitting such prominent targets as NBC and Senator Daschle’s office.

Those terrorist attacks killed 5 people and left others hospitalized. Mueller was assigned to investigate these attacks.

Under Mueller’s management, the FBI launched an investigation that lasted ten (10) years. They have the nerve to now brag about spending “hundreds of thousands of investigator hours on this case.”

Let me take you back to Mueller’s response to understand the context of the investigation — who his people investigated, targeted, and found guilty.

The anthrax letters began one week after the 9/11 attack. In the process of planning the airplane hijackings, Al-Qaeda had been weaponizing anthrax, setting up a lab in Afghanistan manned by Yazid Sufaat, the same man who housed two of the 9/11 hijackers.

Coincidentally, two hijackers sought medical help due to conditions consistent w/ infection via anthrax.

Al Haznawi went to the emergency room for a skin lesion which he claimed was from “bumping into a suitcase,” and ringleader Mohamed Atta needed medicine for “skin irritation.” A team of bioterrorism experts from John Hopkins confirmed that the most likely cause of the lesion was anthrax.

The 9/11 hijackers were also trying to obtain crop-dusting airplanes.

How did Mueller and his investigative team handle the case?

In October of 2001, Mueller issued a statement while anthrax victims were still dying: the FBI had found “no direct link to organized terrorism.” “The John Hopkins team of experts was mistaken,” the FBI continued. “Al Haznawi never had an anthrax infection.” “The crop-dusting airplanes they needed were possible for a separate/unrelated anthrax attack.”

Weeks later, FBI released an unbelievable profile of the attacker.

FBI experts eschewed analysis of the content of the letters, where it was written in bold block letters, “Death to America, Death to Israel, Allah is Great.”

They instead focused on a “linguistic analysis,” stating that the letters’ writer was atypical in many respects and not “comfortable or practiced in writing in lower case lettering.” The FBI’s conclusion, therefore; was that it was likely a disgruntled American w/ bad personal skills.

The investigators hypothesized the attacker was a lonely American who wanted to kill people w/ anthrax for some undefined time period, but became “mission-oriented” following 9/11 and immediately prepared/mailed the deadly spores while pretending to be a Muslim.

Mueller’s FBI honed in on Steven Hatfill as the culprit. Hatfill was a “flag-waving” American, served in the Army, and dedicated himself to protecting America from bioterrorist threats by working in the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

By the FBI’s own admission, there was no direct link from Hatfill to the attacks, and the bureau never charged Hatfill.

The FBI did, however, spy on, follow him, and harass him non-stop for years. The Department of Justice also publicly outed Hatfill as the possible terrorist.

Mueller, meanwhile, took a stand on a separate topic, making front page news for threatening President Bush that he would resign over the NSA program. A program which began soon after the Sept. 11 attacks and did not require court approval to listen in on the communications of Americans. All while his own team was trampling on the rights of an American in the FBI’s largest-ever investigation.

Hatfill successfully sued the government for its unlawful actions. He won almost $6 million dollars. Allow that to sink in a bit. Mueller went on a witch hunt, almost ruined this man’s life and is allowed to continue having the same power he currently possesses.

After the Hatfill debacle blew up in the FBI’s face, they moved on to Bruce Ivins, another Army researcher who had actually volunteered to help the FBI investigate this case, and had been doing so for years.

It was five years after the attack when Mueller’s men decided Ivins was the target.

The FBI case against Ivins, once again, was based on circumstantial evidence.

The prosecution stated Ivins purposefully gave a misleading sample of anthrax spore, but Frontline documented this was not true.

Ivins was “familiar” with the area from which the anthrax letters were mailed, the FBI said, but Pulitzer Prize-winning ProPublica lays out the accepted facts of the case showing it was impossible for Ivins to make the trip to mail the letters. “Impossible!”

The spores used in the attacks were a similar type to the laboratory spores where Ivins worked, but they ignored the fact that the anthrax letters had a unique additive — so sophisticated and dangerous a scientist commented, “This is not your mother’s anthrax” — that was likely produced by a nation state or Al-Qaeda.

Ivins was never indicted, just given the Hatfill treatment. His house was raided, and he was threatened with a death sentence, or as his lawyer put it, put under “relentless pressure of accusation and innuendo.” He committed suicide.

One week later, U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Taylor stated Ivins was guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt,” and they were “confident that Dr. Ivins was the only person responsible for these attacks.”

Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, one of the intended victims of the anthrax terror attacks, did not believe that Ivins was the sole actor.

Mueller ordered an independent audit of the FBI’s case by the National Academy of Sciences, then formally closed the case in 2010, sticking with the conclusion that Ivins, and Ivins alone, committed the terror attack.

One year later the NAS released their results and confirmed what many scientists had been repeating for years: the FBI’s science and conclusions were not solid.

A former FBI official involved in the investigation sued the FBI, alleging the FBI concealed evidence exculpatory to Ivins.

Mueller made his position known, saying, “I do not apologize for any aspect of this investigation,” and stated that the FBI had made no mistakes.

The investigation was an unmitigated disaster for America. Mueller didn’t go after al-Qaida for the anthrax letters because he couldn’t find a direct link.

But then he targeted American citizens without showing a direct link. For his deeds, he had the second longest tenure as FBI Director ever and was roundly applauded by nearly everyone.

Now he’s running the Trump-Russia investigation. Another witch hunt.

The Anthrax Letters That Terrorized a Nation Are Now Decontaminated and on Public View.

Conservatives will not stand for this witch hunt against our President. This is an attempt to overthrow the Presidency and have the Democrats take over.

Don’t let the fake indictments fool you. That’s just grandstanding and at an opportune time to deflect from the Strzok’ Investigation.

Does anyone in their right mind believe anything Peter Strzok’s has to say?

This guy looks and acts like a sociopath.

I wouldn’t trust anything Mueller puts his grimy hands on. He ruins people’s lives to further his own career.

He has quite a past.

Scary. Very scary.

Great article

Fantastic article. No. 31189 2018-07-13 : 22:05

Excellent article! Exposing the corruption of Robert Mueller and his obviously coordinated timing of the “Russian” officials charges would be funny if they weren’t so nefarious. Peter Strzok and the Congressional Democrats were also obviously lying and scheming in blatant lies yesterday. Yes America is dumbed down but more Americans wake up everyday to the LIES and see through it. They are only fooling the brainwashed liberals at this point. Thanks for another Rock Solid article Lexy & Goldwater!

WOW…I really felt like both Mueller and Strozk were scumbags, but I never knew half of the story. Thank you for digging up this dirt and laying it out for us to follow. Very enlightening and makes me trust my instincts even more, they are scumbags!

SAvery No. 31241 2018-07-14 : 13:37

Great article…so when will this all conclude, or are we looking for it to drag on until after the 2020 re-election of our POTUS?

MaryEllen No. 31248 2018-07-14 : 15:49

Mueller should be investigated instead of being the investigator!! Great article with lots of info!

Mona No. 31251 2018-07-14 : 16:10

I remember this and heard about the botched investigations-he has always been a dirty cop

SandyLee No. 31317 2018-07-15 : 12:04

Facts are incredible. They’re even more incredible when you have them. Sounds like Mueller isn’t worthy of finding them. Professionals are supposed to be better than this. This article showcases Mueller’s incompetence.
