Mueller Indictment on the Russians?
If you are on the left you can dream, but reality won't make that dream come true
Mueller Indictment on thirteen Russians
This was written in February 2018, and what has changed since then? Nothing!
Today the last we heard about this indictment is that some of the Russians have pleaded not guilty, and Mueller has asked the judge for a delay. What do we need to know about the Mueller thirty seven page indictment of thirteen Russians. Here is what the Rod Rosenstein, deputy US attorney general concluded about the Mueller Indictment.
Some defendants communicated with "unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign. Some not all the defendants.Communicated with individuals associated with the Trump Campaign, but these individuals had no idea who they really were. and with other political activists.What other political activists? Could they have included the Clinton staff or associates, or maybe the Bernie Sanders staff or associates? Bottom line we don't know the exact communications, nor the targets. To seek to coordinate political activities." What political activities were they?And what was the purpose of trying to coordinate them?We don't really know? We also don't know how this plan would work, or did work?Was it successful, and if so how was it successful?
But United States Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein did say that "there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity." NO American, none and that means that this indictment of thirteen Russians is not a finding in the original Mueller investigation. The original investigation was Trump Russia collusion on influencing the United States presidential election of 2016.Saying the NO American colluded with these thirteen Russians means that Trump didn't collude with the Russians.It also means that the Russians didn't collude with Trump, or his associates.Therefore, as the indictment stands, it is not the proof that the Mueller or any of the investigations that were about Trump Russia collusion on influencing the US presidential election.We are not even sure whether these thirteen Russian even represent Russia. Other than being Russians can we impute their actions to be acts of Russia the country?If Americans did that in a foreign country, and they were not associated with the United States Government should that foreign country make the leap that the US was trying to influence their election.Or what they construe those acts by Americans as being limited to these people and not the US government in Toto? US Deputy Attorney Rosenstein says in addition, "there is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." This last statement of Rosenstein says that their efforts couldn't be traced to any change in the election's outcome. What ever they were doing, it didn't really change anything.
That would have been a clear path to follow back and see if someone did put their thumb or hand on the scale.
But these people were indicted for using the Internet, and there was no trace that gleaned any reaction to the actions of the Russians.Is that any different, than the main stream news media like CNN and MSNBC making disparaging remarks against presidential candidate Donald Trump?These disparaging remarks starts from the time Trump entered the election.They continued during his path to the Republican Primary. They followed from his win of the Republican Primary.Then they were going full speed even to the last minute on election night, until the sobering news hit them that Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump.They haven't really stopped, and now these main stream news media are actually trying to influence the 2018 elections. Why then isn't the main stream news media being indicted for collusion with Hillary Clinton?
Also, why wasn't there an investigation over the Democrat Primary when Hillary Clinton's primary opponent senator Bernie Sanders mysteriously dropped out of the race.There wasn't any investigation on that at all.Yet, there was an email trail that showed collusion of Hillary and the DNC to get Sanders out of the primary.These emails were leaked, and then published by Wikileaks.But just because they were leaked, they were nevertheless the real emails sent by Hillary and the DNC. Neither Hillary or anyone on the DNC or anyone at all ever contested the authenticity of those emails.Yet, no Investigation Isn't conspiring to get your primary opponent out the race, influencing the presidential election? If you can conspire to take out your primary opponent, then you have already fixed the race. The conclusion here is that the Mueller Indictment is not proof of collusion, and certainly not collusion of any American, of which Trump and his associates are included. There is no Russia, just Russians.
