You just can’t make this stuff up…
Yet another key member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe appears to have deep ties to the Democratic Party.
From PJ Media: Aaron Zebley served previously as Mueller’s chief of staff at the FBI and as a senior counselor in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice. He also served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the National Security and Terrorism Unit in Alexandria, Virginia.
He is often referred to in the media as Mueller’s “right-hand man.”
Also, in 2015 when he was a lawyer, he represented Justin Cooper, the IT staffer who personally set up Hillary Clinton’s unsecured server in her Chappaqua home, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson revealed on his show Thursday.
Cooper, it so happens, is also the aide who destroyed Clinton’s old BlackBerries with a hammer.
Watch the brilliant television ad Ted Cruz’s team made during the election, that mocked Hillary Clinton and Justin Cooper for destroying evidence of her crimes, when they smashed her Blackberrys with a hammer:
Documents obtained by Fox News show that Senate investigators grew frustrated with Zebley after being repeatedly stonewalled when they were trying to set up a meeting with Cooper.
“Mr. Zebley telephoned Homeland Security [Committee] staff to inform them that Cooper had chosen to cancel the interview,” the documents said.
In a letter to Cooper, congressional investigators complained: “We are troubled by your attorney’s [referring to Zebley] complete refusal to engage the committee in a discussion about how to further assuage your concerns.”
Let this sink in. The same attorney who played a defensive role for Hillary Clinton was tapped by Mueller in June to play an offensive role against Clinton opponent Trump.
But Zebley isn’t the only questionable hire. Out of a team of fifteen lawyers, nine of them have donated to Democratic candidates. None of them seem to have Republican leanings.
Jeannie Rhee, who was hired by Mueller last summer to work on the probe, was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham reported on Wednesday.
