Elder Patriot – Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch-hunt was effectively denuded of its primary reason for being after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein properly characterized the 16 indictments that were handed down yesterday to reporters:
“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charge in conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.
“This indictment is a reminder that people are not always who they appear to be on the Internet. The indictment alleges that the Russian conspirators wanted to promote discord in the United States and undermine public confidence in democracy.”
As we wrote earlier today, the indictment evidences actions dating back to April of 2014 that was more than a year before Donald Trump became a candidate.
That begs the question why Obama’s administration did nothing to stop what had, by September 2016, grown to exceed a $1,250,000 monthly effort that the indictment described as having the “strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election.”
It also begs the question why Mueller’s investigation ignored the possibility that it was Obama’s administration, not the Trump campaign that possibly colluded with the Russians.
Frankly, Mueller’s indictment reads like it could be applied to Barack Hussein Obama, his administration, George Soros, Democracy Alliance and the Clinton campaign by simply changing the names of the co-conspirators:
“Defendant ORGANIZATION has a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Defendants posted derogatory information… [and] made various expenditures to carry out those activities, including buying political advertisements on social media… Defendants also staged political rallies inside the United States and while posing as U.S. grassroots entities and U.S. persons, and… solicited and compensated real U.S. persons to promote or disparage candidates.”
