Robert Mueller Is an Amoral Legal Assassin: He Will Do His Job If You Let Him - Page 12



LaRouche security operation, and that John Markham had
instructed him to advise the defendants to obstruct justice,
in words dictated by Markham, knowing that the defendants
would write the informant’s words down in their notebooks.
The fabricated and planted notebook quotes were then used
by Markham in his opening statement to the jury, as proof
that the defendants had conspired to obstruct justice.
The lengthy government misconduct hearings Judge Keeton
conducted resulted in a mistrial due to juror hardship. More troublesome for Mueller and Markham, jurors told the Boston Herald that they would have voted not guilty if the case had ended at
that point, following testimony on the credit card fraud counts of
the of the indictment, before the defense even presented its case.
Judge Keeton found that the government had engaged in “systemic and institutional prosecutorial misconduct” in the case. In
a separate opinion, he opened the door to further discovery of
classified operations in a retrial, in order to allow the defendants
to show that they did not have the “corrupt motive” necessary for
an obstruction of justice conviction.
The Justice Department quickly opened a new massive
LaRouche case before Judge Albert V. Bryan, Jr. in Alexandria, Virginia, this time based on a conspiracy to commit
loan fraud and a conspiracy to prevent the IRS from assessing taxes. All defendants were convicted, and only one defendant was charged in both of the two counts: LaRouche.
Bryan raced the case from indictment to trial, preventing
adequate defense preparation; invited the government to
conceal evidence by denying all motions for exculpatory evidence; and prevented the defense from introducing the fact
that the government had bankrupted the companies issuing
political loans, preventing them from repaying the political
loans, in a case in which the government claimed loan fraud
based on non-repayment of the same political loans. Judge
Bryan himself had signed the order initiating the unprecedented government-instigated bankruptcy. U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Martin Bostetter later ruled that the bankruptcy was a
“constructive fraud” on the court. Praising his railroad, Judge
Bryan mocked Judge Keeton openly, saying Keeton “owed
him a cigar” for “disposing” of the LaRouche matter.
Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who represented LaRouche on appeal, said that the LaRouche case represented “a broader range of deliberate cunning and systemic
misconduct over a longer period of time using the power of
the federal government than any other prosecution by the U.S.
government in my time or to my knowledge.” After reviewing the federal cases during hearings held in his Court, widely
respected New York Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Crane
found that the “actions of federal prosecutors raised an inference of a conspiracy to lay low these defendants at any cost.”

Needless to say, Robert Mueller does not feature the LaRouche case as a career highlight.
Ascending the Bush Family Ladder
In 1989, George H.W. Bush brought Robert Mueller to Main
Justice to dispose of another nemesis, Panamanian President
Manuel Noriega. Aside from supporting LaRouche’s “Operation Juárez,” Noriega had refused to go along with the
cocaine financing of George H.W. Bush’s Contra insurgency
operations directed at El Salvador and Nicaragua. Based on
his work for the CIA, Noriega just knew way too much about
George H.W. Bush and cocaine. Following multiple unsuccessful coup attempts against Noriega, more than 28,000 U.S.
troops invaded Panama on Dec. 20, 1989, killing hundreds
of Panamanians, deposing Noriega’s government and armed
forces, and extracting Noriega for trial in the United States.
The operation was dubbed “Operation Just Cause,” an antonym if there ever was one.
