Extremely interesting.

What I don't get is why Mueller would agree to be part of this, given he had no need to. By May '17, he must have known it was a suicide mission, with no chance of success.
Let's assume that he is a willing participant in this fraud. What is his motivation in being the figurehead? It's feasible that he judged being part of it, was better than being on the outside, I guess.

'Trump's coming after us all, so I can offer more on the inside'.
Maybe. But that decision entails HUGE risk to Mueller.

'If we don't bring him down, I am going to be ruined.'

Mueller is a PROUD man. Preserving his legacy would be #1 priority. So to me it doesn't make sense he would risk that, knowing the chances of success were minimal.
Just my gut, but the risk of failure and disgrace means that Mueller - a swamp survivor extra-ordinaire who knows how to SURVIVE - would NOT join the scheme, if he was approached to be part of it.
Again, in May '17, Mueller knew full well that there was almost no chance of success. That's because he would have already seen the entire Trump-Russia story was BS.

He also would have seen that Trump was extremely intelligent & cunning. Mueller's no fool. Been around too long.
Which raises the question: if Mueller wasn't part of the scheme, then why did he agree to become SC of a probe he knew would fail?

What's in it for him?

And why on earth did this happen?

My take - Mueller was given a stark choice on that day :

TURN or BURN.

Trump:

'You 'investigate' this BS and declare it as the nonsense it is. You clear me and my family. In return, you skate, honor intact.'

If you refuse, I will destroy you, with the others.

Deal?'
IMO, Mueller took the deal.

That's my POV. It's speculative, of course. But I have looked at this enigmatic situation in detail, so at least it's researched speculation.

Take it as you will.
I could be wrong.

In normal times, it would be fair to dismiss this as highly unlikely.

But these aren't normal times.
If it turns out Mueller is a bad actor, I will be surprised.

Not that Mueller is compromised - he is, hugely - but more that Trump put himself at such huge risk, when he didn't need to.
And we know that Donald Trump just does not take risks of this nature. He always games every scenario out, to ensure success.

Trump only moves when he's almost certain of success & has maximum leverage.
As POTUS, he is the most powerful human on earth, with access to everything. Now THAT is leverage.

Another fact Mueller would have been been aware of, when accepting his role as TRUMP'S 'Special Counsel'.

#MAGA

The end.
