Robert Mueller has led an investigation against President Trump’s former campaign team for over a year.
Mueller has been quick to point out every flaw or scandal found with the former campaign team, and the media is eating it up.
Now a Freedom of Information Act release proves how intertwined Mueller’s relationship with the media was — and it could prove to be devastating for one outlet in particular.
Robert Mueller’s spokesperson, Peter Carr, reportedly fed information to CNN.
The liberal media news organization slams Trump and his administration at every turn.
Throughout the course of the Mueller investigation, CNN blasted Trump’s entire team.
And Mueller’s right-hand-man was the one feeding them info.
Hundreds of pages of emails and texts came out thanks to a FOIA.
The Department of Justice held them as evidence of an ongoing relationship between Mueller and the media.
The documents surfaced in mid-September and prove that Mueller betrayed Trump to the media.
While Mueller’s spokesperson answered media inquiries with “no comment,” behind the scenes, Peter Carr informed them of every break in the case.
Ironically, media outlets reported for months that Mueller’s team is “leak-proof.”
Yet, Mueller’s team fed information to the media.

Trump is no fan of Mueller.
On more than one occasion, he considered firing the Special Counsel.
But when asked about the state of the investigation should that happen, Carr warned:
“As guidance only, the [Deputy Attorney General] testified last week that he, not the President, would be the one to make the decision. 28 CFR 600 outlines under what circumstances a Special Counsel can be removed. If it came to that, a replacement would likely be found,”
Carr later added to a report where that interview took place, including a description of the room.
His name was kept anonymous.
After that, Carr held dozens of meetings with reporters.
And one of those reporters was Evan Perez of CNN.
Both Carr and Perez worked together extensively and emailed each other with links to new stories.
Carr became increasingly agitated over the news being released about the case.
One story in particular led Carr to blow up.
CNN published a story stating that Mueller and the New York Attorney General were working together to indict Paul Manafort.
“This is the kind of story that happens with the situation we’re in”.
“By the way, this story and the pick up its [sic] getting makes it so the public will think Mueller is in bed with (one of) the most partisan left-leaning AG in the nation. I’m sure he has good people working there but the leadership has a pretty partisan agenda,” Perez emailed to Carr.
“Maybe that’s what the Special Counsel wants,” he adds.
Carr did not have a response to Perez’s insinuations, and instead continued on a rant about the story.
Carr’s relationship with Perez could prove to be disastrous in the coming weeks as more information is released from the documents.
Do you believe CNN’s reputation is worse than ever?
Do you think Peter Carr betrayed Mueller’s team by feeding the media information?
