As we await the coronation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller by the Senate Judiciary Committee, it's worth reviewing a few of the national security and prosecutorial disasters marking the man's tenure as FBI Director. Contrary to Mueller's media beatification as a non-partisan exemplar of public service, these disasters mark Mueller as a reliable political fixer. Now, it looks as if he will become his own branch of government.

Why? For services rendered to the people? I don't think so. 

Robert Mueller became Director of the FBI exactly one week before 9/11. No account of his Bureau tenure is complete without underscoring his shocking obstruction of efforts to bring to light...

Remember how the media just wouldn't let go of the "Russian collusion" connections of Valerie Jarrett, President Obama's top White House adviser between January 20, 2009 and January 20, 2017?

Douglas Macgregor (U.S. Army ret.) in response to Macgregor's criticism of the strike -- clearly, a red line for Gorka.

From the Bukovsky Center's Facebook page:

Vladimir Bukovsky went on the radio in Russia to discuss his internationally acclaimed epic, Judgment in Moscow, which will be published in English for the very first time later this year -- more than two decades after it was written!

Bukovsky explains the shocking reason why in the following excerpt translated by Alissa Ordabai. 

Presenter: I have received the English language proofs of Vladimir Bukovsky's book Judgement in Moscow and immediately wanted to get in touch with Vladimir Konstantinovch because this book's destiny is completely amazing. And the amazing part is the American part, not the Russian part. The publishing...
