Mueller’s friendship with Comey is the Original Sin of the tainted Special Counsel inquisition.
On May 17, 2017, Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel, after the firing of FBI Director James Comey amid accusations by Comey, leaked to the NY Times, that Comey had resisted Trump’s desire to “let go” of the investigation of Michael Flynn:
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
It later emerged that the leak came from Comey himself, by providing at least one memo Comey prepared at and then purloined from the FBI, to a Columbia University law professor for the purpose of leaking to the Times. Comey admitted that he leaked the memo to create a public uproar to create public pressure for a Special Counsel:
COMEY: I asked — the president tweeted on Friday after I got fired that I better hope there’s not tapes. I woke up in the middle of the night on Monday night because it didn’t dawn on me originally, that there might be corroboration for our conversation. There might a tape. My judgment was, I need to get that out into the public square. I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. Didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons. I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. I asked a close friend to do it.
