On Friday, Robert Mueller’s special counsel announced the indictment (37 pages) of thirteen Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities. The Justice Department’s indictment claims that Russian entities stole US citizens’ identities to deceptively, let me quote: “communicate with unwitting members, volunteers, and supporters of the Trump campaign involved in local community outreach.” More precisely, the thirteen Russian nationals posed as pro Trump US grassroots activists and they were distributing pro Trump material, and also got in contact with Trump campaign staffers involved in grassroots rallies in Florida. What’s very interesting and telling is that after more than one year of investigating the Trump campaign, Mueller’s indictment doesn’t mention the word collusion not even once.
The 37 page indictment describes just 2 instances of Russian nationals impersonating US citizens, communicating (establishing contact) with Trump campaign team members. Those pesky Ruskies used a fake G-mail account (very high tech, right?) impersonating a US citizen to contact Trump campaign members who were involved in the “Florida Goes Trump” grassroots rallies. And that’s about it, after millions spent on the Trump-Russia collusion probe, courtesy of Robert Mueller and paid by the American taxpayer. The Russian “interference” with the 2016 election started back in 2014, the conspiracy to interfere that is, according to Mueller’s indictment, and consisted of, let me quote again, “communicating with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities.”
During a press briefing on the indictment issue, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Mueller as special counsel in the investigation, has said that the indictment contains zero allegations about any American, including Trump campaign members, who “was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity.” Cue “nothing-burger” in Deep State-Deep Throat voice. He also said that “there is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”
The indictment claims that the Russians used three companies, the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management and Concord Catering respectively, together with hundreds of Russian operatives (what happened to the Macedonian content farms?) in their mastermind scheme of influencing the 2016 election cycle by sowing discord on Twitter and Facebook, with the end goal being “information warfare against the United States of America”, Infowars on short (just kidding). Also, the Russians paid for political ads on Twitter and Facebook to boost Hillary’s opponents (Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein and Trump), and they also organized political rallies criticizing the Clintons and supporting Trump.
Almost 2 years in, and the best they can come up with is people pretending to be someone they’re not on social media. Isn’t that pretty much everybody on those dating websites? Notice how Mueller hired the most corrupt people to staff his witch hunt. People who had so much baggage and could be easily blackmailed. Strzok and Page wanted to hide their adultery. Bruce Ohr wanted to hide his wife’s dirty dealings and his attempts to cover them up. Those are the kind of people you use to get to a predetermined outcome. Certainly not the sort to staff an honest investigation. But Mueller wants you to pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Most importantly, they know this will never come to trial. The witch hunt will make the most outrageous statements, knowing they will never have to prove anything in court against foreign nationals that will never be extradited.
The thing is, they’re married to that narrative now. Even though all the evidence points back at Hillary and the DNC, they can’t stop. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
