Mueller testified under oath he did NOT interview with Trump for the job of FBI Director on May 16, 2017

Yet new FOIA'd emails show DAG Rosenstein sending an email the very next day, May 17, saying that "Mueller" has now "withdrew from consideration for FBI Director"🤔

Mueller's testimony to the House. Mueller is clear that he was never "applying" for the job of FBI Director, he was never under consideration, and his "interview" on May 16, 2017 was just to give his "input" on "what it would take to do the job"

Rosenstein email, just released in FOIA. Mueller "withdrew from consideration for FBI Director", sent on the morning of day after the "interview" with Trump, May 17, 2017.


(Note: Rosenstein appointed Mueller Special Counsel later that same day)
Mueller can't "withdraw" from "consideration" for the job of FBI Director unless he was previously under consideration for the role, which he testified he wasn't

Rosenstein was in the "interview" on May 16, so his email makes no sense if Mueller was never under consideration
So who is wrong? Mueller, or Rosenstein (Mueller's boss)? Because they can't both be right, and one of them was under oath.

Okay @petestrzok has now admitted he got it wrong that the Australians watched Trump’s “Russia if you’re listening” press conference on July 27 and *then* contacted the FBI (they actually reached out the day before)

But there is an even bigger problem

Strzok opened CH on July 31, supposedly on the basis that @GeorgePapa19 (or other Trump figures) may have been told about the Russians having info on Hillary (and Obama, bizarrely) and this may have been related to the DNC email hack or the missing Hillary emails
Okay, so Trump gives a press conference on July 27, where he asks where Hillary’s “missing” emails are

Strzok and the FBI’s theory is that @GeorgePapa19 might have known about *those very emails* AT THAT TIME - from the Russians

**ATTENTION: Congressional candidates/voters interested in energy policy**

Given the blackout risk in California and Biden’s comments on Fracking, energy policy is likely to be a more prominent talking point over the next few days...(until another riot at least)
...I’d urge any Congressional candidates who follow me to to check out by @AlexEpstein.
This is a well researched and footnoted collection of Tweet length talking points on energy policy, fracking, Biden’s plan & more. A great resource & @AlexEpstein may be able to assist you further if you get in contact. It’s not the easiest website to navigate but stick with it!

The @petestrzok also says the Steele dossier “didn’t talk...much about Paul Manafort” when the central dossier allegation is that Manafort ran the Collusion conspiracy. So he’s either lying or getting it wrong, kinda like the FISA he helped with
Strozk interview in @TheAtlantic: “The Steele report...It didn’t talk...much about Paul Manafort”
Steele dossier:
“there was a well-developed conspiracy of co-operation between [the Trump campaign] and the Russian leadership. This was managed on the TRUMP side by...campaign manager Paul MANAFORT”

Just a reminder that the official line is that the investigation was never into the Trump campaign. Comey denied that under oath. You slipped up here, which is a tell
The official line is that FBI opened an investigation into four individuals, linked to the Trump campaign, as part of a broader investigation into a supposed “enterprise” that may have existed between them & Russia

I know, the lies are hard to keep track of

In Oct ‘17 the FBI’s Bill Priestap appears to have been telling Adam Schiff in undisclosed House Intel briefings that the Page FISA wasn’t almost entirely reliant on the Steele dossier AND in Feb ‘18 he was also telling Senate Intel that Steele’s “primary sub source” was legit 🚨
Priestap also agreed with MI6 that any derogatory information they gave to the FBI about Steele would not be written down (meaning it couldn’t be disclosed to the FISA court or Congress.) This in a series of London meetings he claimed not to be able to remember the details of
