Mueller may have very dirty hands with link to Russian Oligarch

The take away from this bombshell report that takes more than 300 words to explain. This is what I got from Hannity and Laura Ingraham last night. First the Cliff-Notes edition.

Mueller had asked this Russian oligarch to try to free Levinson a FBI agent held by Iran. Spent his own $25 Million. At last-minute, Hillary backs down while the plane was on the tarmac to retrieve him.

Oligarch banned from the United States except for one visit at a time. FBI goes back to the oligarch and suggests that Trump and Russia are in collusion. Essentially offers him to “keep an open mind” whether Trump was involved with Russians. Oligarch says no way was Trump involved.

Take away could be that if the Russian “kept an open mind” he may no longer be banned from the United States. Read the post at The Hill for the full story that reads like a B spy novel.

I found one clip of Hannity last night which tells a small piece of it.

…..But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.

In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.

Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.

“Deripaska’s efforts came very close to success,” said David McGee, a former federal prosecutor who represents Levinson’s family. “We were told at one point that the terms of Levinson’s release had been agreed to by Iran and the U.S. and included a statement by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pointing a finger away from Iran. At the last minute, Secretary Clinton decided not to make the agreed-on statement.”


Deripaska also appears to be one of the first Russians the FBI asked for help when it began investigating the now-infamous Fusion GPS “Steele Dossier.” Waldman, his American lawyer until the sanctions hit, gave me a detailed account, some of which U.S. officials confirm separately.

Two months before Trump was elected president, Deripaska was in New York as part of Russia’s United Nations delegation when three FBI agents awakened him in his home; at least one agent had worked with Deripaska on the aborted effort to rescue Levinson. During an hour-long visit, the agents posited a theory that Trump’s campaign was secretly colluding with Russia to hijack the U.S. election.

“Deripaska laughed but realized, despite the joviality, that they were serious,” the lawyer said. “So he told them in his informed opinion the idea they were proposing was false. ‘You are trying to create something out of nothing,’ he told them.” The agents left though the FBI sought more information in 2017 from the Russian, sources tell me. Waldman declined to say if Deripaska has been in contact with the FBI since Sept, 2016.

      Thanks…. I am really getting weary of all it as well… The media just doesn’t seem interested in it and I wonder why. This was a zero interest post. No more Mueller for me.

    I haven’t written anything on this story because I am still trying to figure out exactly what happened. Is it normal for the FBI to do something like this to free an agent? I am inclined to believe it is not and that there is a major conflict of interest and hypocrisy here with dealing with Russians which should cause Mueller to resign. I am not holding my breath.

      I am more concerned with the fact they were trying to get him to claim that Trump was in collusion with the Russians…. and he wanted to testify but no one called him up to.

    The only putrid thing about America is its politics. I swear, the most senior of our politicians has but a miniscule amount of love of country as does the average service man or woman. This republic cannot long endure.
