Conservative pundits have incorrectly accused Robert Mueller of overseeing an investigation that put four innocent men in prison. This is incorrect, as he had nothing to do with the investigation, writes Nancy Gertner in the New York Times. She is the judge who oversaw the successful lawsuit against the government by two of the men. Mueller was neither involved nor mentioned in the resulting lawsuit. Still, conservative commentators like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have accused him for things he didn’t do. Without showing proper evidence, these heavy allegations are unfounded and should stop. Mueller is being unfairly smeared.
While head of the FBI, Robert Mueller oversaw several investigations that were terribly mishandled, ruining the lives of several people and wasting millions of taxpayer dollars, asserts Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist. Additionally, he was overly lenient with Samuel Berger, a White House national security adviser who removed and destroyed evidence linked to the 9/11 terrorist attacks at the National Archives. Mueller also went far too easy on a Deputy Secretary of State who leaked the identity of a CIA agent. His blunders were serious and should not be dismissed as easily as they have. Holding him accountable is not partisan.
