House Republicans has been investigating Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team and have found evidence that some of the prosecutors broke the law.
Rep. Devin Nunes, (R-CA) team has discovered that documents released by the FBI, including witness reports (called 302s), found “glaring evidence that contradicts claims that the Mueller team made to the courts and Congress.
“We’re now going through these 302s, and we’re going to be making criminal referrals on the Mueller dossier team, the people that put this Mueller report together,” Nunes said.
One of the most glaring examples is an FBI interview memo that describes George Papadopoulos as being helpful trying to locate a witness named Joseph Mifsud, but Mueller’s prosecutors portrayed in court that Papadopoulos was trying to hinder their efforts.
We linked to the Papadopoulos memo below, unlike what the Mueller team claimed it was obvious Papadopoulos wanted to help from the first paragraph.
The new FBI memos provide “our first evidence of the Mueller team lying to the court. It a lie. It’s a total lie,” Nunes said, referring to the Mueller team’s claim that Papadopoulos tried to hinder efforts to locate and question Mifsud.
“I always assumed that Papadopoulos probably was helpful. I mean, he’s kind of alluded to that, that he offered to be helpful, but we had never seen the actual 302s,” Nunes said.
Despite the fact that Republicans hold the minority in the House, they can still make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice. Nunes is hoping that John Durham, US Attorney in Connecticut, who is in charge of the investigation into the Russian hoax will look into this referral.
Nunes made eight criminal referrals last year against witnesses that he thought were not forthcoming during his committee’s investigation. This is the first time that any criminal referral has been made against the Mueller team and it could force the DOJ to review the accuracy of Mueller’s final report.
