A retired FBI agent has made it his mission to determine who notified the Nazis where Anne Frank was hiding during World War II.

Former FBI Agent Vince Pankoke has tapped a 19-member team that plans to use new investigative techniques that weren’t available 50 years ago, the Guardian reports. 

The team also has access to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which collects archives and is supporting the investigation.

Pankoke also has received recently declassified documents that may help investigators get closer to solving the mystery.

Frank and her family were found hiding in a secret place above a canal-side warehouse.

Frank was taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp, and she was later shipped to Bergen-Belsen, where she died in 1945 at the age of 15 from typhus.

After the war, authorities never were able to identify who betrayed the family’s hiding spot.

Washington Times: Is Robert Mueller on a Fishing Expedition

Washington Times

Robert Mueller is nothing if not relentless. Impatient with a fishing expedition that relies on slippery prey to swim into his net, the special counsel now dreams of besieging anyone at the White House who has so much as watched an episode of a television drama about Soviet spies in Washington. Scalps have to be taken because that’s what special counsels, i.e., special prosecutors, do.

Mr. Mueller was commissioned to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties, if any, to Russians. That investigation seems to be what drillers looking for oil call “a dry hole.” Mr. Mueller has so far spent millions, giving employment to every lawyer in town without a client, and he has to come up with something, and soon. That’s why his investigation is ranging so far afield.

Foreign meddling in American elections, by the Russians or anyone else, is seriously grave business. Mr. Mueller has focused his guns on one of Donald Trump’s early campaign managers, Paul Manafort. No one, despite several investigations, has yet demonstrated that there is anything on Mr. Trump himself. Mr. Mueller sent his agents to raid Mr. Manafort’s home in Alexandria, in suburban Virginia, before dawn, reminiscent of an episode of “Cops.” A forensic team spent 10 hours extracting every shred of evidence of wrongdoing, collecting everything from grocery receipts to tax records, looking for something, anything, to prove the president was in cahoots with Vladimir Putin to save the world from Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Mueller could have collected the “evidence,” such as it might be, by subpoenaing any and all documents. This might have deprived a grand jury of a dramatic search for the big ham sandwich which prosecutors traditionally use to get an indictment when the prosecution doesn’t have anything else. Mr. Mueller, according to several press accounts, has told Mr. Manafort that he will be indicted. He’s apparently still looking for a crime.
