Comey Consulted with Mueller on Russia Testimony

From Sara Carter:
A government watchdog group revealed Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey was advised by senior FBI officials to seek Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s advice prior to testifying before “any congressional committee” about President Donald Trump’s campaign and its alleged collusion with Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to new emails obtained by Judicial Watch. 

Comey was also advised to seek Mueller’s counsel on the circumstances surrounding his firing by Trump before providing testimony to Congress, the Department of Justice emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. It is the first time evidence reveals there was coordination between the Special Counsel and Comey in the long drawn out controversial Mueller investigation.

“These documents show that James Comey, who was fired by the president, nevertheless had easy, friendly access to the FBI as he prepped his infamous anti-Trump testimony to the Senate,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, in a press release. “This collusion led to Comey’s attacking President Trump and misusing FBI records as part of a vendetta against the president.” (Read more.)

Central to the drama is the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Many have called for him to recuse himself or to be dismissed for a variety of good reasons in dealing with Russian case. There are also other reasons he should go, having nothing to do with the Russian case, but with his apparent incompetence to perform his other major responsibilities, which have not been discussed in the press.

A key responsibility, as delegated by the attorney general, of Mr. Rosenstein’s office is to oversee the nomination of the 93 United States attorneys. The U.S. attorneys represent the U.S. government before U.S. district and appellate courts. As of two weeks ago, 30 U.S. attorneys still had not been nominated (six others are awaiting Senate confirmation). The administration has been in power for 15 months, yet approximately a third of the U.S. attorneys’ offices are vacant. Mr. Rosenstein, who is minding the store? (Read more.)
