Former FBI Mueller: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil


 

News comes that Eric Holder is considering running for President in 2020. Let’s have a refresher as to what that might mean for good red bloodied Americans. So let’s go back to circa 2012. First a short clip of Holder now:

 

 

FBI has as the Director one Robert Mueller. The Department of Justice has as the Attorney general one Eric Holder. Consider the risk of connecting these two together once again. Later let’s add a Comey to the mix.

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.

Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.

“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”

“I’m going to defer.

snip….

“Holder’s new definition of ‘due process’ was perfectly Orwellian,” Turley wrote. “What Holder is describing is a model of an imperial presidency that would have made Richard Nixon blush. …

“Where due process once resided, Holder offered only an assurance that the president would kill citizens with care. While that certainly relieved any concern that Obama would hunt citizens for sport, Holder offered no assurances on how this power would be used in the future beyond the now all-too-familiar ‘trust us’ approach to civil liberties of this administration,” he wrote. More Here

Comey: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access 

The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain.

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process.

    I remember when this was being debated all those years ago and there were only a few of us writing about it. I am with you, I am tired of refighting battles that should have been won years ago!

    The most dangerous enemy facing American republicanism is the government that the American people elected. This is not rocket science. Elect an idiot like Obama, who appoints additional idiots like Clinton/Kerry, and you end up with hundreds of equally idiotic bureaucrats like Mueller. Wise up America — you’re on a suicidal path.

      I for one am tired of the few who are jumping up and down with this nonsense… the nine years of blogging provide me to just recycle the what should have been headline news years ago. But then, we were accused of wearing tin foil. I for one am totally done with it.
