Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom said, during an interview Tuesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” that special counsel Robert Mueller’s 15-year friendship with fired former FBI Director James Comey is “a huge conflict of interest.”
…Kallstrom called Mueller’s selection as special counsel inappropriate and “off the charts.”
“I think it’s a huge conflict of interest. Quite frankly, I was really, really surprised and disappointed with the deputy attorney general, who first-off appointed a special counsel when there was no articulation of any crime whatsoever. And the statute actually calls for that, so that was ignored,” Kallstrom said.
§ 600.3 Qualifications of the Special Counsel.
(a) An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decisionmaking, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies. The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government. Special Counsels shall agree that their responsibilities as Special Counsel shall take first precedence in their professional lives, and that it may be necessary to devote their full time to the investigation, depending on its complexity and the stage of the investigation.
(b) The Attorney General shall consult with the Assistant Attorney General for Administration to ensure an appropriate method of appointment, and to ensure that a Special Counsel undergoes an appropriate background investigation and a detailed review of ethics and conflicts of interest issues. A Special Counsel shall be appointed as a “confidential employee” as defined in 5 U.S.C. 7511(b)(2)(C).
“What crime are they going to be investigating? There’s not even an articulated crime. In fact, from the words of a wide variety of people on both sides of the politics, there is no crime,” Kallstrom said. “The whole thing is a farce in my view. It’s just crazy, and I don’t know what this guy was thinking, this deputy attorney general.”
“I was really surprised that knowing Bob Mueller — I was on his advisory for almost a decade … I was shocked that he would actually accept it,” Kallstrom said. “I mean, he knows that he has a massive conflict of interest. I mean, what does he think? Where does he think General [Michael] Flynn’s name came from? It came from the unmasking.”
“In lieu of substantive evidence provided to the public that the alleged hacks which led to Wikileaks releases of DNC and Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta’s emails were orchestrated by the Russian Government, CrowdStrike’s bias has been cited as undependable in its own assessment, in addition to its skeptical methods and conclusions. The firm’s CTO and co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a think tank with openly anti-Russian sentiments that is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, who also happened to donate at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.
In 2013, the Atlantic Council awarded Hillary Clinton it’s Distinguished International Leadership Award. In 2014, the Atlantic Council hosted one of several events with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who took over after pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in early 2014, who now lives in exile in Russia.”
