Dear Friend of America's Survival,
The term “person of interest” was used by the FBI against scientist Steven Hatfill in the post-9/11 anthrax letters case. He was totally innocent and the Department of Justice paid him $5.8 million in damages. After dismissing Hatfill and several others as suspects, the FBI blamed a dead U.S. Army scientist, Bruce Ivins. However, evidence indicates that the more likely culprits were Al-Qaeda operatives who got the anthrax from a U.S. lab. The truth was too embarrassing for the FBI to reveal.
Note: the next wave of terrorism after 9/11 was to be chemical or biological attacks. And medical reports suggested that two of the 9/11 hijackers may had come into contact with anthrax.
The Russia-gate special counsel, former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, presided over this anthrax investigation fiasco. What’s more, Mueller was sued for malfeasance in the case by the FBI agent, Richard Lambert, who was put in charge of the anthrax investigation.
Carl M. Cannon, executive editor and Washington Bureau chief of RealClearPolitics, noted, “…Jim Comey and Bob Mueller have a long history as professional allies. For Mueller to be brought in to investigate the behavior of the guy who sacked Comey [Trump] seems a conflict of interest.” He pointed to their work on the anthrax case, saying, “Comey and Mueller badly bungled the biggest case they ever handled. They botched the investigation of the 2001 anthrax letter attacks that took five lives and infected 17 other people…”
