During his book tour, James Comey has stated on camera that he doesn’t really know Robert Mueller. If that’s true then why are there now reports of him reaching out to Mueller almost immediately after being fired as FBI Director by President Trump? (A firing which was urged by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who then promptly appointed Robert Mueller to head the Trump/Russia investigation)
Comey has not disclosed his communications with Mueller nor has Mueller disclosed his communications with Comey. Hmmm…

FBI: Comey Colluded with Mueller Hours After He Was Fired as FBI Director; Mueller Appointed Special Counsel Days Later
Former FBI boss James Comey talked with mentor and close friend Robert Mueller within hours after he was fired by President Trump, according to Bureau insiders with direct knowledge of the correspondences.
The first conversation between Mueller and his FBI protégé reportedly took place while Comey was traveling home from Los Angeles on a chartered Gulfstream Aerospace commissioned by the Justice Department, according to high-level FBI sources.
Incredibly, one week later, Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to take over Comey’s FBI Russia Trump investigation.
Neither Comey nor Mueller have publicly disclosed corresponding with each other between the eight days Comey was fired and Mueller was hired to run the Trump Russia investigation as Special Counsel.
Comey traveled on the FBI charter flight with a security detail which included five male FBI agents, sources said, in addition to a civilian flight crew. No one else was on the private flight which was chartered from a private corporation. The Justice Department did not own the twin-engine jet, sources said.
Comey was fired on May 9, 2017 while he was visiting the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office.
One week later on May 16, the first story of Comey’s secret memos about Trump surfaced in the New York Times, alleging the memos could prove President asked Comey to rig the Michael Flynn investigation. Those claims were recently debunked after Comey’s memos were made public this month.
Mere hours after the New York Times article, Mueller was appointed U.S. Special Counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on May 17, 2017.
…Let’s see Mr. Comey’s and Mr. Mueller’s phone records and email between the time Comey was fired and Mueller was hired. Include the otherwise obscure records from the in-flight phones on the chartered Gulfstream.
Certainly those closely-guarded records are not part of any well-scripted happy ending for the embattled FBI.
But who in power in D.C. has the guts to do anything about it? Perhaps that is the bigger question.
