Robert Mueller has walked through life the past couple of years as if he were Columbo about to crack his biggest case yet.
In reality, all he has really done is waste so much of the government’s time and money that it is hard to imagine him being put in charge of something that wasn’t more complicated than an electric rice cooker from now on.
That being said a US District court judge has coincidentally ordered Bobby Mueller to hand over all of the so called secret documents related to the questioning of former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.
Flynn’s team contends that the FBI had urged the retired general to not bring a lawyer with him to an interview at the White House in January of 2017. Now, you would think that the FBI would want to make sure that they have the checklist of everything that they were supposed to be doing correct. Well, their ducks weren’t all in a row and now they are facing tome big time problems in regards to questions concerning how they handled this situation.
It’s sort of like if you got arrested and the cop just casually forgets to read you your rights.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on Wednesday ordered Mueller to turn over all documents and “memoranda” related to Flynn’s questioning by 3 p.m. Friday. Sullivan is the same judge who overturned a 2008 conviction of former Sen. Ted Stevens after government misconduct was revealed.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe set up the White House interview with Flynn, suggesting he not have a lawyer present. “I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [Flynn] and the agents only,” McCabe wrote, according to newly filed court documents.
“I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants.”
FBI officials also decided not to warn Flynn that there he could face perjury charges if he made false statements during what appeared to be an informal interview.
