Populism is about fighting a corrupt establishment. And boy did we see them in action last week. This was the week that Robert Mueller put himself in the arena
Steve Hilton at Fox News writes,
With his bizarre new doctrine of “not not guilty,” he overturned the presumption of innocence. Then, with his unsubtly coded call for the impeachment of President Trump, he revealed his real aim: Overturning the 2016 election.
Mueller revealed his true self – a partisan establishment swamp lawyer
Mueller was hired to be a neutral arbiter, to bring a clear conclusion that the country could unite behind. But on Wednesday, he ripped off the mask of neutrality and showed himself for what he is: A partisan in the fight between the populists and the establishment.
We shouldn’t be surprised — Mueller is the establishment. He’s a swamp lawyer, as we told you months ago in our “Swamp Watch” episiode on the special counsel and his best buddy, James Comey last August.
Remember, Robert Mueller was previously director of the FBI. And James Comey was previously deputy attorney general. By an incredible coincidence, once Comey left that job to become the multi-million-dollar general counsel of defense giant Lockheed Martin, Lockheed Martin was awarded contract after contract, over a billion dollars’ worth, by Robert Mueller’s FBI.
And there’s more, as we told you, last August:. I said the following:
“Robert Mueller’s swampiness goes beyond awarding billion dollar contracts to his best friend’s employer.. After leaving his post as FBI director, what did this modern-day saint, this paragon of ethics and integrity do? He cashed in, of course. Mueller went back to work for his old law and lobbying firm, now called Wilmer-Hale. And surprise surprise, his clients were directly related to his previous government work. One of them was Booz-Allen-Hamilton — like Lockheed Martin, a giant surveillance contractor. Bloomberg has called them ‘the world’s most profitable spy agency.'”
That’s the establishment code: You protect each other. Always. And you take down any and every threat to your power. That’s how to understand last week’s extraordinary intervention by Mueller. It was the establishment’s final stand against their mortal enemy – Trump, and the peasant’s revolt he led in 2016.
They tried to stop him getting elected by clearing Hillary Clinton. They tried to bring him down by manufacturing a Russia collusion scandal. And when all that failed, last week Robert Mueller played the obstruction card.
Strip away all the tortured legalese and intellectual incoherence, it all boiled down to one thing – Mueller saying, “I can’t prove he did it, but [wink] he did it.” He talked about “another process,” and with that weak, pathetic attempt to hide the explosive nature of what he was really saying, Mueller called on Congress to impeach the president.
