I got interested in this because it was Robert Mueller (currently investigating "Russian collusion") that endlessly harassed Army Scientist Bruce Ivins. It's a classic federal "lone nut" scenario. Extremely sketchy evidence, a public disinformation campaign enthusiastically trumpeted by corporate/government-controlled media, and a bizarre suicide (by Tylenol with no note).
Time has shown that Mueller's case was full of holes, but they went ahead and destroyed this guy's life. And as this article points out, Dick Cheney was handing out Anthrax antidote to his staff before the attacks started. Mueller is sketchy as hell, and he also suppressed the evidence against Saudi Arabia being involved in 9/11. He seems to be the guy the government hires when they want a particular investigative conclusion to be reached.

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

A big argument against Ivins is that he submitted Anthrax samples deliberately that did not match the mailings. But oops, it came out he submitted multiple samples. He had no motive or prior indications whatsoever (sound familiar?), was a devout church-goer and Red Cross volunteer. There is no physical evidence against him. His colleagues said there were no signs at all and one of the witnesses against him ran with biker gangs and did meth and PCP, and knew him for six months.
As for his suicide, it's a common misperception that death by self OD is easy. It's actually really hard if you want to kill yourself. The thing reeks of cover-up bullshit.

Which gets to the controversial topic of how the government builds BS narratives that the media spews as truth. It's happened over and over again. It's fascinating to me that people go down in history blamed for things when there is scant evidence and a clear cover up. Who mailed the Anthrax anyhow? The feds did trace it back to a US military facility and blamed it on a lone nut. Mmmkay...

Bullshit, you don't have a clue about Mueller and the type of person he is.

"A graduate of Princeton University, Mueller served as a Marine Corps officer during the Vietnam War, receiving the Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V" for heroism and the Purple Heart Medal."

He withdrew from Princeton to ENLIST in the Marine core to go to Vietnam. Dudes like him are the backbone of our Republic and the only connection to what the Founding Fathers envisioned. Him and Comey will go down as the two of the most important people in American history.

You have no fucking clue how important those types of people are to our government. Ridiculous politicians from both sides come and while the people like them hold our government together.

Who the hell do you think you are to question his integrity?
