Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation has come under fire repeatedly for political bias. Now a whistleblower who once worked for Mueller claims the special prosecutor is more than just biased.
According to an exclusive report from Big League Politics, former FBI agent Chuck Marler says Mueller lied to the Senate in 2005 when questioned about an FBI surveillance program. Marler says that “Mueller and certain members of FBI Management deceived the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in 2005 and they intimidated and bullied the U.S. Office of Personnel Management from 2005 through 2008.”
Marler told Big League Politics that because of Mueller’s response then, “since Mueller has taken over as Special Counsel, I’ve been concerned about him continuing that behavior.”
Another Day, Another Scandal
Marler worked for the FBI’s Special Surveillance Group (SSG); Mueller was the FBI director at the time. As the secretive program rapidly grew in scope after 9/11, the agents involved asked for “better protection, better compensation and more clear duties defined through Congress.”
According to Marler, Mueller and FBI management were “continually notified” that the agency was growing “way beyond the scope of their operational plan” and the agent’s safety was at risk. But when FBI management didn’t respond, the agents took their case to Congress.
Marler says that two FBI employees wrote a letter, sending it to each member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) notified the agents that she had received the letter, and of Mueller’s response. Big League Politics reports:
The two employees involved in the SSCI letter were informed by staff at Senator Hutchison’s Office of Mueller’s response to the letter which the two employees knew the response was not truthful.
They sent another, less detailed letter to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The OPM opened a routine investigation in response; but once the the OPM officer assigned to the case initiated an investigation, she found herself threatened by the FBI with arrest – simply for doing her job.
Former agent Marler says the SSG agents who initially sent the letter were threatened with “arrest, imprisonment, raids of their residences and loss of their job.” All of the agents involved were “overtly and covertly punished, then and to this day.”
Mueller’s Corruption Runs Deep
Marler spoke out to Big League Politics because of their ties to Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group; the former agent hopes to shine a light on the dirty backroom deals Mueller was involved in and the threats that the FBI, under Mueller, leveled at those trying to do their jobs.
How does Marler know about it? He was one of the agents involved.
“I know the OPM Officer, the FBI employees and their supervisor because obviously, I was one of the four employees,” he wrote. He says the corruption “of certain members of the FBI management” eventually led him to quit and start his own business.
Marler doesn’t expect that the evidence will be easy to uncover, but he goes on to say that he “pray[s] Mueller will answer for his actions.”
