Pathetic: Mueller’s Special Counsel Patched Together Indictment of Russian Operatives From an Article in Radio Free Europe

Christ, what a clusterfuck.

From Gateway Pundit

After sixteen months of investigations and over a year-and-a-half of the FBI and Obama administration spying on Donald Trump, his family, his business, his campaign, his transition team and his administration — Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped an absolute nothing-burger on Friday in announcing charges against Russian operatives who sullied the US election process during the 2016 election and following Donald Trump’s victory.

The indictment named 13 Russian operatives from the internet Research Center LLC. in St. Petersburg who attempted to “interfere” with the 2016 US presidential election.

……But this information is nothing new.

It appears Mueller and his team of far left attorneys copied much of their report from an earlier RFE article.
4chan has a thread alleging Robert Mueller and his high-priced sham investigators got all the names and the idea for his Russian indictment from a 2015 Radio Free Europe article.
We plugged the article into Google translate (It’s in Ukrainian), and the article reads like the Mueller indictment.

Here is the Mueller indictment describing the Internet Research Agency LLC:

 

And here is the RFE article from 2015:

“For the third year, first in St. Petersburg, in the village of Ol’hina, and then in the city itself, on the street Savushkina, in the building number 55 there is a mysterious organization, which is officially called the Limited Liability Company Internet Research, and unofficially nicknamed by its employees, the so-called “Kremlin trolls”, “the Ministry of Truth” .

The official founder and director general of this organization is the retired militia colonel Mikhail Bystrov , and is funded by the Concord holding, headed by friend and chef of President Vladimir Putin Yevgeny Prigozhin . Since 2000, this holding organizes banquets in the Kremlin, as well as cooperates with “Vointorg” and the Ministry of Defense.

In the “Trust Ministry”, approximately 400 people, who change one at a time for 12 hours, sit around the computer around the clock and write in blogs – mostly in “Live Journal” or “VKontakte”. There are several departments. In one they are engaged in the blogosphere, in another they are preparing TK – technical tasks, in the third one – they comment on the news in Russian and foreign media , in the fourth – mount photos in the photoshop, forcing, say, heads of Navalny and Obama to the bodies of animals, and so on.”

The article even has a photo of the Ministry of Justice headquarters on Savushkin Street in St. Petersburg–

 

It appears the hotshot liberal Mueller team produced their report with the help of a report written back in 2015.

And there’s this…

The Russian ads mentioned in Mueller’s indictment were already released by the House Intelligence Committee in November 2017.

Facebook previously announced the Russian ads comprised .004% of their advertising during the election.

 

Turns out that the Russians’meddled’ alright; they organized anti-Trump protests after the election, one of which, was led by porcine Micheal Moore.

Incredible. Mueller’s investigation is a total fucking sham.  These 13 ‘indicted’ Russians aren’t even in the country. He can’t arrest them.

This is all a tactic to justify his existence, and satisfy a witch hunt. 

Mueller has yet to investigate any real crimes, i.e.:  The millions of dollars Hillary’s Clinton Foundation received from Russians connected to the Uranium One deal.  Come to think of it Mueller’s right hand man, Andrew Weissmann, signed off on the plea deal of a Russian businessman involved in the Clinton-Uranium One case.

Mueller and his ‘special counsel’ need to be investigated.

The Liberal Media Stopped Reporting on the ‘Collision’ Story They Helped Create

From The Federalist

Half the country wants to know why the press won’t cover the growing scandal now implicating the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, and threatening to reach the State Department, Central Intelligence Agency, and perhaps even the Obama White House.

After all, the release last week of a less-redacted version of Sens. Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham’s January 4 letter showed that the FBI secured a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to search the communications of a Trump campaign adviser based on a piece of opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The Fourth Amendment rights of an American citizen were violated to allow one political party to spy on another.

If the press did its job and reported the facts, the argument goes, then it wouldn’t just be Republicans and Trump supporters demanding accountability and justice. Americans across the political spectrum would understand the nature and extent of the abuses and crimes touching not just on one political party and its presidential candidate but the rights of every American.

That’s all true, but irrelevant. The reasons the press won’t cover the story are suggested in the Graham-Grassley letter itself.

The letter details how Christopher Steele, the former British spy who allegedly authored the documents claiming ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, told the FBI he wasn’t talking to the press about his investigation. In a British court, however, Steele acknowledged briefing several media organizations on the material in his dossier.

According to the British court documents, Steele briefed the New York TimesWashington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker, and CNN. In October, he talked to Mother Jones reporter David Corn by Skype. It was Corn’s October 31 article anonymously sourced to Steele that alerted the FBI their informant was speaking to the press. Grassley and Graham referred Steele to the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation because he lied to the FBI.

The list of media outfits and journalists made aware of Steele’s investigations is extensive. Reuters reported that it, too, was briefed on the dossier, and while it refrained from reporting on it before the election, its national security reporter Mark Hosenball became an advocate of the dossier’s findings after November 2016.

BBC’s Paul Wood wrote in January 2017 that he was briefed on the dossier a week before the election. Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald likely saw Steele’s work around the same time, because he published an article days before the election based on a “Western intelligence” source (i.e., Steele) who cited names and data points that could only come from the DNC- and Clinton-funded opposition research.

A line from the Grassley-Graham letter points to an even larger circle of media outfits that appear to have been in contact with either Steele or Fusion GPS, the Washington DC firm that contracted him for the opposition research the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee commissioned. “During the summer of 2016,” the Grassley-Graham letter reads, “reports of some of the dossier allegations began circulating among reporters and people involved in Russian issues.”

 

Read the entire article. It names all of the participants in the conspiracy.

And of course, the leftwing mainstream media is in a full blown panic.  They should be; they participated in the fraud.  The corrupt media and Dems clamored to reveal a fake grotesque dossier, then tried like hell to suppress proof that it was bogus.

The ‘Russian-Trump collusion’ bullshit pushed by the media, is a big fat nothing burger.

The real collusion was a concerted effort between the DNC lobbyists, Russia, and the Obama cabal.

Former MI6 operative, Christopher Steele, was hired by Fusion GPS, a corporate espionage firm, to dig up dirt on Trump but came up with a fabricated smear instead. Not deterred by the total implausibility of the story described in the dossier, GPS shopped the dossier to the liberal media and paid journos to feed the fake story to the press with predicable results; the left wing morons at Buzzfeed and  CNN  jumped at the chance to print the fake news.  The FBI even offered $50,000 to Steele for information.

The Obama regime paid almost one million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS.

The FISA court gave Obama permission to wiretap Trump in October under the guise of national security.  Obama did that in case Trump was elected, so he could use whatever eavesdropping he compiled to undermine the Trump administration.  He pulled an end-around and lied to the FISA court in order to get the permission to wiretap.

The first attempt to get a FISA warrant for the wiretap was turned down, so Obama went back to the court in 2017 and lied to get it. Four different judges were lied to and fed a political hit piece as an intelligence report. And surprise, Loretta Lynch signed off on all of them.

They found no wrong doing, and won’t admit to the wiretaps or the lack of evidence.

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe wasn’t just privy to the conversations between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page when they discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency, he was part of it.  He also initiated White House meetings that produced ‘anonymous source’ leaks promoting the false ‘Trump-Russian collusion’ story.

There was all out effort on the part of the FBI leadership and the Obama regime to undermine the election and overthrow Donald Trump if he became president.

Bottom line: The media, the FBI, James Comey, the Hillary campaign, a reprobate former MI6 agent, and the Obama regime all had a hand in producing and paying for this lurid, fabricated dossier which was then used to secure a warrant from the FISA court under fraudulent claims, to spy on the Trump campaign.

The Dems are ass deep in this conspiracy. Every single one of them, from Obama on down, should be hauled in front of Congress and charged with sedition.

Mueller Indictments Undercut Trump-Russia ‘Collusion’ Claims

He indicted 13 Russians that haven’t been arrested, who aren’t even in the country, and oh by the way, two of them were here thanks to visas they got from Obama’s State Department.

Mueller’s indictments revealed two things:

  1. These efforts started in 2014, long before Trump even announced his candidacy.
  2. Considering this started in 2014, then it was John Kerry’s State Department who would’ve approved the visas for these Russian operatives.

As far as any Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the Obama regime, specifically John Kerry’s State Department, is culpable.

From The Daily Wire

On Friday, the Mueller investigation’s grand jury indicted 13 Russians associated with election meddling. But that wasn’t the real headline. The real headline is that supposed Trump-Russia collusion doesn’t seem to exist. And that’s pretty clear from the indictment papers.

The indictment targets 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities the government says were utilizing “information warfare” during the election cycle. According to the indictment, these people “support[ed] the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump” and worked on “disparaging Hillary Clinton.” But after Trump’s election, according to the same indictment, “Defendants and their co-conspirators used false US personas to organize and coordinate other false US personas to organize and coordinate US political rallies protesting the results of the 2016 presidential election.” One of those rallies included “Trump is NOT my President,” held on November 12, 2016.

What about election coordination with the Trump campaign? According to the indictment, “Some Defendants, posing as US persons and without revealing their Russian association, communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities.” It’s not collusion, folks, unless the Trump campaign knew it was working with Russian sources. This line of attack seems to be falling apart.

Another interesting item in the indictment:

Another player in this is a Natalia Veselnitskaya, a  “Russian lawyer”, who has been a Dem operative for years.

Matter of fact, Veselnitskaya met with Obama’s Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul during a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, 8 days after contacting Trump Jr. in Trump Tower.

Mueller has yet to investigate any real crimes, i.e.:  The millions of dollars Hillary’s Clinton Foundation received from Russians connected to the Uranium One deal.  Come to think of it Mueller’s right hand man, Andrew Weissmann, signed off on the plea deal of a Russian businessman involved in the Clinton-Uranium One case.

Mueller and his ‘special counsel’ need to be investigated.

Mueller Worked with Lerner to Target Tea Party

He’s as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and so is his ‘special counsel’.

Via The American Thinker

 

Just when you thought the Deep State swamp couldn’t get any murkier and the stench any more repugnant, we are reminded by Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton in a Feb. 13 tweet of how Robert Mueller’s FBI worked with Lois Lerner’s IRS to target Tea Party and other groups in the run-up to the Obama re-election campaign…

The treasure trove of documents detailing the weaponizing of powerful government agencies, including Mueller’s FBI, by the Obama administration to target the Tea Party was obtained by Judicial Watch as a result of court orders stemming from Freedom of Information Act lawsuits after the political targeting of the Tea Party:

“Judicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.

The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”

The documents were produced subsequent to court orders in two Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits: Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:14-cv-01956) and Judicial Watch v. Department of Justicehttps://www.judicialwatch.org/document-archive/jw-v-doj-01239-public-integrity-irs/ (No. 1:14-cv-01239).

The new IRS documents include a October 11, 2010 “DOJ Recap” memo sent by IRS Exempt Organizations Tax Law Specialist Siri Buller to Lerner and other top IRS officials explaining an October 8 meeting with representatives from the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section and “one representative from the FBI” to discuss the possible criminal prosecution of nonprofit organizations for alleged political activity:

On October 8, 2010, Lois Lerner, Joe Urban [IRS Technical Advisor, TEGE], Judy Kindell [top aide to Lerner], Justin Lowe [Technical Advisor to the Commissioner of Tax-Exempt and Government Entities], and Siri Buller met with the section chief and other attorneys from the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section, and one representative from the FBI, to discuss recent attention to the political activity of exempt organizations.”

 

 

Under Obama’s direction, the IRS didn’t have any trouble defining his preference of sympathetic leftwing groups over Tea Party/GOP organizations.

Obama met with top IRS official William Wilkins before the targeting began.  As a matter of fact, a Cincinnati IRS employee testified that it was quite clear the orders came from D.C.

rundown of IRS corruption under Lerner’s regime:

According to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, top Internal Revenue Service Obamacare official Sarah Hall Ingram discussed confidential taxpayer information with senior Obama White House officials.

Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations division, also received an emailalongside White House officials that contained confidential information.  More emails uncovered Lerner’s role in the conspiracy, including proof that she gave confidential taxpayer information to the FEC, violating federal law.

J. Christian Adams, the former DOJ attorney who blew the whistle on Holder’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation, was himself targeted by the IRS for critical articles he published in Pajamas Media.

The IRS engaged in the deliberate suppression, harassment, and intimidation of patriotic and conservative groups, and those who focus on the Constitution and criticize government spending, with Obama’s blessing.

All of the IRS officials, including the new IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, have lied, spun, denied, and openly smirked at any attempt to get at the truth.

Bottom line: No one in the entire Obama regime, including the Corruptocrat-in-Chief is being held accountable for their crimes. Instead, they were paraded in front of Congressional hearings where hot air passes for real prosecution because the GOP lacked the balls to stop them.

Susan Rice Email on Russia During Trump’s Inauguration Implicates Obama, the DOJ and FBI in Spying on Trump

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) uncovers unusual Susan Rice email on Russia.

Via Fox News

 

Ex-national security adviser Susan Rice sent an “unusual email” to herself the day President Trump was sworn into office documenting…Obama’s guidance at a high-level meeting about how law enforcement should investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, two Republican senators said Monday.

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, the partially unclassified email was sent by Rice on Jan. 20, 2017 — and appears to document a Jan. 5 meeting that included Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Vice President Joe Biden and Rice.
In the email, Obama’s national security adviser wrote: “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’ The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

The email also appears to reflect Obama’s guidance on sharing sensitive information with both the Russians and the incoming administration.

Rice wrote that Obama said “he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

She added, “The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team.  Comey said he would.”

Grassley, R-Iowa, and Graham, R-S.C., released the email Monday. They said they uncovered it as part of their oversight of the FBI and the Department of Justice, and claimed it raises new questions.

“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation,” they wrote in a letter to Rice.

They added: “In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’”

The origins of the Russia meddling probe have come under mounting scrutiny on Capitol Hill, where Republicans are looking at how an unverified anti-Trump dossier was used to seek a surveillance warrant against Trump associate Carter Page in late 2016.

The senators asked Rice to answer questions about the email by Feb. 22.

 

From the Gateway Pundit

Rice wrote the email to herself on her last day in office to document a January 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting between Obama, former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yatesregarding the spying operation on Donald Trump.

The Obama administration used dirty FISA warrants based on DNC opposition research to spy on the Republican candidate and his entire team during the 2016 election and transition period.

The opposition research dossier was a crazy document based on complete lies fed to the DNC by Russian spies. And the Obama administration were all in on this criminal activity.

And Trump found out about this criminal activity after his inauguration.

 

Catherine Herridge from FOX News reported:

……”It goes to the question to the extent to which the past administration was aware of the Russia intelligence investigation that was being run by the FBI. Remember this was an investigation that was so closely held that it was not briefed to the senior congressional leadership gang of eight.”

 

Because they knew what they were doing was illegal.

Excerpts from Grassley’s news release:

Ambassador Rice appears to have used this email to document a January 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting between President Obama, former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates regarding Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.  In particular, Ambassador Rice wrote:
“President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book’.  The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective.  He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”

Grassley and Graham were struck by the context and timing of this email, and sent a follow up letter to Ambassador Rice. The letter reads in part:
“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation.  In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’”

Grassley and Graham have asked Ambassador Rice to answer a set of questions by February 22, 2018 so the committee may further assess the situation.

 

Bottom line: The FBI, James Comey, the Hillary campaign, a reprobate former MI6 agent, and the Obama regime all had a hand in producing and paying for this lurid, fabricated dossier which was then used to secure a warrant from the FISA court under fraudulent claims, to spy on the Trump campaign.
