Steele views Mueller as part of the soft coup team?

Conservative TreehouseThe key takeaway within the 2017 communication between Bruce Ohr and Chris Steele, seemingly glossed over amid the granular presentation, is that Christopher Steele viewed Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the “small group team.” The fact that Steele viewed Mueller as an extension of the Strzok, Comey, Page and McCabe objective is a rather big deal, yet generally not given much attention.

The above is a big deal, but the documents only support it indirectly.

Conservative Treehouse -- from transcript images[8/6/17, 12:28:04 PM] [redacted -- probably Steele]: Hi Bruce, hope you're well and getting some holiday with the family. Whenever convenient I would like a chat, there's a lot going on and we are frustrated with how long this reengagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking. Anything you could do to accelerate the process would be much appreciated. There are some new, perishable, operational opportunities which we do not want to miss out on.

The obvious thing here is that Steele and Bruce are still talking. Steele thinks Mueller and the Bureau can "reengage" in something, presumably some aspect of investigating Trump. But Mueller can't engage with the Bureau and the Bureau can't engage with an investigation of Trump -- that's precisely the reason for a special counsel, he's supposed to be reasonably independent. So why does Steele think he can and should "reengage" with Mueller? Is he feeding Mueller information from Russian or other intel sources on Trump? It sure sounds like it -- and we know that the Trump investigation has been heavily funded by private sources.

But the biggest takeaway is that these transcripts go all the way to December of 2017. That's a year after the election. Why are Ohr and Steele still talking a year after the election? Remember, Steele was fired as a confidential source from the FBI before the election even happened. Bruce Ohr at DOJ picked up the information thread and fed information from Steele to the DOJ and FBI. Apparently, this continued past the election and almost a year into Trump's presidency, just from these excerpts. Possibly longer.

This is not how a normal government functions. This is a coup.
