Mueller intervenes in Text probe

It seems Mueller has jumped into the fray between DOJ and Capitol Hill investigators in the battle over texts. He wants to censor or redact information in them.

We elected Congress not Robert Mueller as some gatekeeper.

Washington Examiner — Byron York – 1/27/18

The Justice Department has given Congress less than 15 percent of the texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page – and that is all Congress is likely to get, at least until department experts finish an effort to recover an unknown number of previously lost texts that were sent and received during a key five-month period during the Trump-Russia investigation.

Finally – and this could be significant or not – Boyd said that “in a few instances,” the Justice Department consulted with the office of Trump-Russia special prosecutor Robert Mueller and made some redactions “related to the structure, operation, and substance of the [Special Counsel’s Office]’s investigation because it is ongoing.” Hill investigators don’t really know what that covers. (The letter said if Congress has questions about redactions in a particular text, the department would “work with” Congress to further describe or reveal redacted information “in a closed setting.”)

The bottom line is that the Justice Department has turned over a fairly small percentage of the Strzok-Page texts. Even assuming many of the texts would be personal – the two were having an extramarital affair, after all – some Hill investigators wonder whether roughly 43,000 of the 50,000 known texts were wholly personal.

    Yup, Mueller is attempting to subvert the shit from hitting the fan. I have been of the opinion that Mueller’s job was to discover dirt that may lead to Obama and Hillary. and then bury it.

    Finding some superfluous shit on Trump or his associates is simply a bonus.
