The 448-page report by Robert Mueller entitled “Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election,” bears two glaring omissions. These omissions indicate one of two things, either Mueller’s world-class team of high-powered prosecutors is intentionally covering up major crimes against Trump’s election team, or they have handled the investigation with supreme incompetence.
When it comes to leading the nation by the nose through massively faulty investigations, Robert Mueller is no amateur. This is the man that helped convinced a nation that we had to fight a war in Iraq because they had WMDs, and that it didn’t matter that the actual attackers were meant to have originated in Afghanistan. 18 years later, we still have troops in Afghanistan, and Afghanistan is still the world’s top exporter of opium.
According to Margot Cleveland, a former law clerk and professor at the Business University of Notre Dame with over 50 years of experience, “[…] the Mueller report fails to consider whether the dossier authored by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele was Russian disinformation, and Steele was not charged with lying to the FBI.”
She wrote an article for the Federalist in which she says, “The Steele dossier, which consisted of a series of memorandum authored by the former MI6 spy, detailed intelligence supposedly provided by a variety of Putin-connected sources. For instance, Steele identified Source A as ‘a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure’ who ‘confided that the Kremlin had been feeding Trump and his team valuable intelligence on his opponents, including Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.’”
Cleveland continued, “Other supposed sources identified in the dossier included: Source B, identified as ‘a former top-level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin,’ Source C, a ‘Senior Russian Financial Officer,’ and Source G, ‘a Senior Kremlin Official.’”
Cleveland asserts that Mueller’s conclusion that no one in the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia means the investigation was premised either on a lie- or on massive incompetence.
Cleveland writes, “…Trump’s victory does not negate the fact that, assuming Steele truthfully relayed claims to the FBI and the media that his Russian sources provided, Russia interfered in the election by feeding Steele false intelligence on Trump.”
The article continues, “Yet in the special counsel’s report, Mueller only identified two primary ways Russia interfered in the 2016 election: the report claims ‘First, a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents.’”
Though Mueller was authorized to investigate the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, the report makes no mention of any efforts to investigate Russia’s role in feeding Steele purposely misleading information.
Despite the clear conflicts of interest degrading the Mueller investigation, only Senator Chuck Grassley has even mentioned these issues. He raised the issue with Attorney General William Barr, saying “Mueller spent over two years and 30 million dollars investigating Russia interference in the election. In order for a full accounting of Russia interference attempts, shouldn’t the special counsel have considered whether the Steele dossier was part of a Russian disinformation and interfere campaign?”
This is a question that we have been asking from the beginning. The Mueller report was effectively defamed in 2017 when confirmation of illegal spying on the Trump campaign was first revealed. Remember, we saw several mainstream media articles on the topic in 2016 in which major players in intelligence and in government said that they were spying on Trump.
In 2017, Trump found out about it and WikiLeaks showed us how they do it with the Vault 7 info dump.
None of this is new information. We knew in 2017 that the Christopher Steel document was a work of deception that had been passed through a series of hands in an attempt to hide its source.
Now, Democrats are trying to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for wanting to find out the answer to these questions. Seems more like Democrats are trying to save their own, rather than find the truth.
