Fox News host and veteran Sean Hannity dug into the history of special counsel Robert Mueller, and his findings provided interest insight into Mueller’s life.
In the 1980s, for example, Mueller served as an assistant U.S. attorney in a case where four men were convicted and imprisoned for a crime they turned out to not actually be involved in.
“If we want law and order to rein in this country, if we want to be a constitutional republic, we’ve got to investigate the investigators,” Hannity declared. “We’ve literally got to drain the swamp and sewer.”
“Who is Robert Mueller? Everybody says, ‘He’s the greatest guy in the whole wide world. Just trust us!’” Hannity said. “Well members of Congress, the mainstream media, they’ve been trying to convince you the special counsel – ‘he is beyond reproach.’ Sort of like climate change. ‘Oh, noobody disagrees with us. No scientist does.’ That’s not true either! ‘Mueller is the utmost man of integrity.’ Well, we’ve been doing some digging and we found some things you need to know about.”
The Daily Caller also reported the following from Hannity’s commentary:
“Robert Mueller’s career has been anything but impeccable,” Hannity said. “One of the worst stains on his record comes from his time Boston, where he served as assistant U.S. attorney and acting U.S. attorney in the ’80s. During this time notorious Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger, he was actively engaged by the FBI as an informant. The relationship between Bulger and the bureau was wrought with nothing but corruption and criminal collusion.”
“Bulger’s FBI handler, guy by the name of John Connolly covered up for many of the horrific crimes that were committed by Bulger and his associates, including one instance where four men were wrongfully framed and convicted and imprisoned for decades — all for a murder it turns out they did not commit,” Hannity continued. “The men were ultimately exonerated. A judge awarded $101 million in damages, but not before two of the men actually died in prison. Robert Mueller was the U.S. attorney in charge while these men were rotting in prison while certain agents in the FBI under Mueller covered up the truth.
