Chuck Rosenberg Podcast With Robert S. Mueller III (Part 1) | The Oath - Ep 31 | MSNBC 1

 

Former FBI Director Bob Mueller talks about his distinguished half century of public service, starting as a decorated Marine officer in Vietnam.

A recipient of the Bronze Star (with valor) and the Purple Heart, Bob returned to the United States after his service in Vietnam and graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law. He became a federal prosecutor in San Francisco, and embarked on a career that would take him to the heights of federal law enforcement in this country, and to the helm of the FBI.

My interview with Bob Mueller is in two parts. The first part covers his childhood through his selection as the FBI Director. The second part, which we will publish later this season, picks up where the first interview leaves off – and covers his tenure as Director, guiding the FBI through a difficult and challenging post 9/11 world.

I should add a word about what is not in either episode – any detailed discussion of Bob’s work as Special Counsel leading the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Bob was clear when he testified before Congress about this work and his report, and that the report spoke for itself. He did not opine about his findings and does not do so here, either. One of the things I learned while working for Bob Mueller at the FBI is that you take this decent, honorable, and courageous man at his word. Because he is a man of few words, each word matters a lot and so it is worth listening carefully.

Bob shares with host Chuck Rosenberg in this first part (of a two-part interview) the story of his service in Vietnam, his time as a new federal prosecutor, and his ascent through the Justice Department to become the FBI Director. This interview with Bob Mueller is the only full one he has given since leaving public life, and it may be the only full one he gives.

  1. So you guys aren’t going to discuss anything we want to hear, got it.

  2. Why. Why now. Mueller had chance to get Trump where it hurts -his finances as they tied into the investigation – and did not. I respect the man but ask him why he didn’t follow the money

  3. Robert Mueller is a real American Patriot. He was given a memo before he started his investigation saying that Trump cannot be charged. He had the odds stacked against him as he investigated but I believe he should have done more for example tried to get Trump’s taxes. Living through this investigation and coming out unscratched made Trump believe he was invincible and gave him a green light to commit more crimes without any accountability. However don’t forget that Mueller did specify that Trump could be prosecuted after leaving office! Trump for Prison!

  4. A man’s Man

  5. Oh yeah. Do you love me? 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  6. Thank you for telling your interesting story✌

  7. What a humble, genuine Man

  8. He never spoke.
    I was expecting to hear JFK.
    When he finally did speak he sounded like Aunt Harriet on Bewitched.

  9. Really nice 👌 😍💋 💝💖❤️

  12. OMG 20 ADS AND I’M ONLY HALF WAY THROUGH UNBELIEVABLE HOW MANY ADS THERE ARE, IS THIS YOUTUBES DOING, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED IN 2016 WHEN A VIDEO TALKED ABOUT RUSSIA NOT A COINCENDENCE.

  13. My God! The amount of adverts! Couldn’t watch the entirety of this podcast because the adverts deterred me.

  14. Thank you for all of your service to the United States Mr Robert Mueller.

  15. This is fantastic. True heros like Bob are the ones who should have statues not the traitors and terrorist of the past

  16. I have highest respect for Former FBI Director Bob Mueller…..He is a Man of integrity and is respected ALL AROUND the WORLD. I do feel he would have done something more for this GREAT NATION USA and saved us from this turmoil that we are going thru now with TRUMP. Director Bob Mueller very well new that he is dealing with Crook, Thug, Tax Cheat, Money Laundering and many crimes involvement of TRUMP. He should have gone to court and got the required order to investigate the CROOKS . But he walked away. God gave him a big chance to fight corruption but he shied away. Still I have lots of respect for him.
