I am amazed by the conspiracy of silence, on the right and the left, about former FBI Director Robert Mueller’s bungling of the anthrax case. “In his years as FBI director and as a Justice Department official, Mueller gained a reputation for honesty, integrity, and being a ‘straight-shooter,’” writes Fred Barnes at The Weekly Standard.
This is pure hogwash, to use a family-friendly term.
Barnes, a veteran journalist, is not alone in offering such undeserved praise of Mueller. Commentators on the right and left have been ( repeating this garbage) ever since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel.
