After reading this article, one has to wonder that did Special Counsel Robert “Witch Hunt” Mueller have on Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Whatever he had on Cohen had nothing to do with Russia, that’s for sure.
According to McClatchy,
A mobile phone traced to President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign, leaving an electronic record to support claims that Cohen met secretly there with Russian officials, four people with knowledge of the matter say.
During the same period of late August or early September, electronic eavesdropping by an Eastern European intelligence agency picked up a conversation among Russians, one of whom remarked that Cohen was in Prague, two people familiar with the incident said.
The phone and surveillance data, which have not previously been disclosed, lend new credence to a key part of a former British spy’s dossier of Kremlin intelligence describing purported coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia’s election meddling operation.
The dossier, which Trump has dismissed as “a pile of garbage,” said Cohen and one or more Kremlin officials huddled in or around the Czech capital to plot ways to limit discovery of the close “liaison” between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Repeating what I and many others have said:
“Who cares if Trump was trying to do business in Russia before he ran for president”?
Thus, one must question Mueller’s motives.
Clearly, his agenda has more to do with hurting anybody associated with Trump, than proving Russian collusion.
Admittedly, I love watching Leftists wait for the shoe to fall on Trump. Pigs will fly and unicorns will one day reveal themselves too.
Back to the article and the bigger question. Why didn’t Mueller disclose that Cohen was never in Russia as the dossier claimed?
I’ll take, “If you’re making a case that Trump’s lawyer is in Russia, ergo “Russian collusion,” and it turns out he’s nowhere near Russia, the case takes a hit” for 2000, Alex.
So where are we in this case?
As it pertains to Trump, we are at the same point. As it pertains to the Democrats, case closed. They are guilty as sin. And there is a reason Robert Mueller won’t release any report. It’s because that report condemns Democrats in ways “the fixer” can’t hide.
The real crime
As I wrote a while back, Mueller screwed up royally with Flynn:
Mueller likely doesn’t realize it, but his statement about Flynn may be the one that haunts him the most. Because the FBI handling of Flynn is very much in question.
In the latest release of new information surrounding the Democrats’ attempt to steal the election, code name: Russian Collusion, it’s clear the FBI contradicts itself.
Multiple sources reported on Comey’s testimony on Flynn:
In March 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed a number of Capitol Hill lawmakers on the Trump-Russia investigation. One topic of intense interest was the case of Michael Flynn, the Trump White House national security adviser who resigned under pressure on Feb. 13 after just 24 days in the job.
There were widespread reports that Flynn had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about telephone conversations that he, Flynn, had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the transition in late December 2016. On Jan. 24, 2017, two of Comey’s FBI agents went to the White House to question Flynn, and there was a lot of speculation later that Flynn lied in that interview, which would be a serious crime.
“The Jan. 24 interview potentially puts Flynn in legal jeopardy,” the Washington Post reported in February. “Lying to the FBI is a felony offense.”
There was also a lot of concern in Congress, at least among Republicans, about the leak of the wiretapped Flynn-Kislyak conversation. Such intelligence is classified at the highest level of secrecy, yet someone — Republicans suspected Obama appointees in the Justice Department and intelligence community — revealed it to the press.
As Kimberly Strassel has asked multiple times, why hasn’t this crime been investigated. As far as Mueller’s investigation goes, this is a real crime that needs follow up.
That question may get answered soon.
But now Mueller has a new conundrum, and it’s with another casualty of the witch hunt. Let’s see how things work out for Mueller on this latest problem he created for himself and Democrats.
