A Cryptic Addition to a Long-Standing Murder Mystery

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein flew to Seattle for a press conference at which he announced little, but may have said a great deal.

The DOJ and FBI’s biggest and yet bizarre case. 

A major case with thousands of investigated leads that generated more documents than the Enron case. For over 17 years.

There is one lead suspect subject to the most exhaustive investigation by the world’s premier law enforcement agency and with no charges. High level DOJ officials such as Eric Holder and Rod Rosenstein have flown to Seattle for updates and asking public’s help or encouraging someone to talk.

The latest announcement in 2018 was an appeal to decency and greed, asking a newly discovered small circle of suspect conspirators to confess for the right reasons and money.

Every possible path, reasonably expected to generate a result, has been exhausted and potential witnesses and evidence keep degrading over time. 

And none of that can explain the initial official conduct.

Articles by capable journalists, including former US Attorney Jeffrey Toobin and James Fallows, struggled with what are normally signs of a cover up: slow walking, continued resource denial, and organizational display of indifference if not disrespect by not attending the funeral — except they came from the FBI headquarters and main Justice at the time. Someone made a comment about trying hard not to solve a crime.

FBI does not normally or intentionally accuse and chase murder suspects without sound hypothesis, but it also does not fail to solve one of a kind high priority case sound hypothesis for 16 years. There are exceptions caused by lack of alternative suspects, bias and error like the Amerithrax case. Wrong hypothesis which was too vested in.

What does explain all of the above incongruities is secret compartmentalization routinely associated with undercover operations whose elements continued engaging in criminal conduct. He had knowledge of the conduct, did not approve of it, and any infighting or public revelation posed risks to individuals, operations and agency(s) image. Case investigators would not have encountered evidence of such activity to follow up on.

May be the DOJ hierarchy at the time was sending a message by not having a representative attend the funeral, seemingly placing some blame on him for pushing for unpopular outcomes with public exposure implications.  Mueller did not behave to cover up but acted within constraints imposed on him, and firing McKay was highly likely impacted if not directly related to pushing for a full investigation which was the problem in the first place.

While the allegations of misconduct blamed the initial problems on the Bush administration, the last administration did not perform much better. 

There were more subsequent deep-sixing attempts as leads surfaced and as recent as 2017 and 2018 to fully assess yet. Meanwhile, other overlapping major stings and investigations became diversions where resources were distracted and squandered on irrelevant wild goose chases, encouraging bureaucratic build ups and intra-agency disconnects run amok.

The nature of challenges were not purely political but institutional, procedural, sensitive to multiple interests, and not confined to Seattle or Washington State.

May be the lead suspect was actually involved, or maybe some one already in jail for life, or a persona, will confess to being the hit man to put an end to the investigation.

Even so, the above is still independently true. 

If there ever was a (bigger picture) case that can benefit from an outside push or audit, this seems to be it.

11 Warning Signs of Gaslighting

About gaslighting since it is not commonly known … It is referenced in Sources & Operatives box of “Once a Fool, Twice Willing, Thrice …” post, the slide deck and supporting documents but does not have a separate post.

Gaslighting is a manipulation tactic used to gain power. And it works too well.

Opinion | Smearing Robert Mueller

I have seen nothing factual against Mueller personally and missed this one but the I do not watch opinion shows.

They allow/ed perjury, and misled other federal and state agencies to protect informants and a program (read a group’s status, influence and budget vs. a critical function) leading to innocent people imprisoned. Even misled the DOJ. DejaVu all over again.

Sean Hannity and others are blaming the special counsel for one of the F.B.I.’s worst scandals. But there is no evidence to back up their charges.
