What I do want to cover in this post is another accusation against Mueller, which is equally insane, but which was forced out of our attention by the clowning of the Gateway Pundit guys. This alleged malfeasance comes to us not from the SMOTI, but from a man I call the SMITH; the Stupidest Man In The House, Texas representative Louie Gohmert. Here's the story, from Crooks and Liars:
"MUELLER’S MINIONS HELPED MOBSTER WHITEY BULGER ELIMINATE MOB COMPETITORS, says Congressman Louie Gohmert...In the extensive report, Gohmert covered Mueller’s shady past of helping mobster Whitey Bulger by eliminating mob competitors.
...it was Mueller, first as an assistant US attorney then as the acting U.S. attorney in Boston, who wrote letters to the parole and pardons board throughout the 1980s opposing clemency for the four men framed by FBI lies."
So let's see if I have this straight now. Robert Mueller, an extremely successful prosecutor during the eighties, put mobsters in prison and kept them there. We can all agree about that. As Louie's story goes, this was all done not to enforce Federal law, nor to advance his own career, but because Mueller was a corrupt tool of Whitey Bulger, another mobster. No evidence offered to support this assertion, and as Crooks and Liars continues:
"...retired federal judge and Harvard Law School senior lecturer Nancy Gertner set the record straight in a New York Times editorial:
"There is no evidence that the assertion is true. I was the federal judge who presided over a successful lawsuit brought against the government by two of those men and the families of the other two, who had died in prison. Based on the voluminous evidence submitted in the trial...I can say without equivocation that Mr. Mueller, who worked in the United States attorney’s office in Boston from 1982 to 1988, including a brief stint as the acting head of the office, had no involvement in that case. He was never even mentioned."
Maybe not quite as colorful as the rape story, but equally outrageous. Louie Gohmert should be driven out of public life for this disgusting smear, but instead his massively red district is about to easily send him back to the House, where he can continue working on behalf of the people, as he did in this case.
