Funny Business in the Mueller Report

We have wondered and pondered reasons why former Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia “collusion” investigation. They got him to recuse by accusing him of having contacts with the Russians in his capacity as a Trump campaign official. Adding salt to the injury, they began investigating him for allegedly making untrue comments to the US Senate. Acting Attorney General (then) Rod Rosenstein gave authorization to the Mueller team to investigate Sessions October 20, 2017.

Sessions recused himself in March of 2017. He was accused of non-disclosure of contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in his capacity as a Trump campaign official, according to The Guardian. This is a claim Jeff Sessions denies. He says he did not mislead the Senate,and that it was “totally false” to claim he had met with “Russian operatives to discuss Trump’s election campaign.”

The Washington Post, in an article dated March 1, 2017, said Justice Dept. officials gave this statement: “Justice officials said Sessions met with Kislyak on Sept. 8 in his capacity as a member of the armed services panel rather than in his role as a Trump campaign surrogate.” In other words, the man was doing his job. Sarah Flores had this to add: “He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign — not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee.”

Sessions recused himself as Democrats wanted. He did so, however, out of a belief that being a part of the campaign would likely affect his ability to be fair and impartial throughout the investigation. A sentiment many on the Mueller team should have shared. Somehow, that recusal is made to look like a sign of guilt.

Lawyers Wrapped Up in Funny Business

Remember Michael Cohen? Who could forget him. He recently tweeted he was going to tell it all his way.

How could you not believe him after all he has been through? He’s just misunderstood. But I digress. Remember the phony business he set up? Essential Consultants LLC was allegedly set up so Cohen could “inter alia” (could just have said “among other things”) receive Russian funds.

Guess who made those allegations? Michael Avenatti. The “lawyer” who represented Stormy Daniels in her bid to get a non-disclosure agreement nixed. Is he the same lawyer who defrauded quite a few people of millions of dollars and tried to extort Nike? Why yes, yes he is that same lawyer. He claimed Cohen used funds from this LLC to pay Stormy to shut up about her alleged affair with Donald Trump (Google Project Sunlight). Except the Chicago Tribune says it was the funds Cohen received from a bank fraud scheme he perpetrated, listing his wife as co-guarantor. Which, by the way, is why Cohen lied his ass off.

The Mueller report is beginning to read like a pulp fiction novel, and not a very good one at that. It does, however, substantiate one thing I am positive it wasn’t aimed at substantiating. The investigation was indeed a witch hunt. Those who got caught up in Mueller’s net either got caught for crimes that did not involve the Trump campaign, or were caught in a perjury trap and did not do what is said. Mueller was indeed investigating an innocent person in search of a crime to impeach him with.

Mueller Report a Lesson in Doublespeak: (Update April 19, 2019, 12:57 pm ET)

Disinformation is the key word in this update. The Mueller report is blatant disinformation. Eleven pages in and already I have a two and a half page list of things that just are not correct. Let me just list them for you right here.

  • Wikileaks received Hillary’s email from the Russians: Except Julian Assange, in an interview with Sean Hannity via BelfastTelegraph, stated emphatically that his organization (with ten years perfect record of reporting) did not receive any emails from the Russian Government. The founder of Wikileaks gave this statement: “And so here, in order to prevent a distraction attack against our publications, we’ve had to come out and say ‘no, it’s not a state party. Stop trying to distract in that way and pay attention to the content of the publication.”

Long a sticking point on the right, the fact that the content of the emails has been buried in speculation by the news media and our government about how Wikileaks obtained it has never made any sense. The Mueller report mentions nothing on the content of the emails at this point in my read. Just that they were obtained by Wikileaks in a fashion their Editor In Chief flatly denies. Assange’s honesty has to be without question, as he has a record of never needing to retract; for 10 years Assange has put out nothing but the truth.

It Gets Stickier

  • The Russian government and Internet Research Agency (IRA) used Facebook ads which were partial to Trump and disparaging to Clinton: Except USA Today told us that the ads were playing both sides of the aisle. Russia was not trying to influence American elections one way or the other. They were trying to disrupt completely.
  • Information given to an Australian official by George Papadopoulos was the impetus for the investigation into the Trump campaign: Except the FISA warrants used to spy on Trump (ostensibly through Carter Page)  were prompted by the Steele dossier, according to Investors Inc. The Hill shows us an FBI email chain that proves the many instances of FISA abuse by govt officials trying to Pin the Russian Collusion on the president.
  • Mueller Probe identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign: Although it is not an outright lie, it is only half the truth. The other half is that the Trump campaign actively resisted any aid from the Russian government despite numerous offers by the foreign government to do so. In other words, the Trump campaign rejected Russia’s attempt to use it to influence the elections.

Wait… What?

A specific line in the Mueller report is so much doublespeak it may make your head spin. It reads like this:  

Except the Russian government did not care who won. Their objective, as clearly seen in the Facebook ad campaign, was simply to cause a disruption in the elections. Which they succeeded in doing for two years. Besides that, we have already established within the very same Mueller report that the Trump campaign actively resisted Russian attempts to involve themselves in the elections.

Speaking of Doublespeak

Remember, I am eleven pages in. Already I have found three instances of doublespeak, the largest of which is above. Think about this: Though there is little doubt the Russian government would have thought of the benefits of a Trump presidency if they had not already, there is evidence directly contradicting the assertion that the Trump campaign thought to benefit from Russia’s supposed theft of Hillary’s emails. Again, Julian Assange flatly denies he obtained anything from the Russian government.

Here is another one. Line one tells us what we will find in the report, and describes how these events are validated. The second line tells us that there is no evidence (or was a conflict in the evidence[?]) to support some of the facts or events described in the report (meaning they weren’t validated). The third line states that in the case of events which have credible evidence, the report will say the investigation established certain actions or events occurred. The fourth tells you that facts could exist apart from evidence of said facts. Which denies the first line, and invalidates the validation process.

Round and Round We Go

Translation: Just because I cannot find evidence of a certain thing after two years does not mean that thing does not exist. That bit of doublespeak gymnastics pales in comparison to this one:

The first line is true. The IRA purchased upwards of 3000 Facebook ads to use in a disruption campaign it labeled “Information Warfare.” The second one contains a lie wrapped in a truth. The truth is this disruption campaign by the IRA and the Russian government began when Barack Obama was President. The Obama administration had the power to stop this campaign long before it reached out to the Trump campaign with its offers to help.

This whole thing did not have to happen, in other words. How does that make you feel? The lie (or half-truth, if that makes you feel better) is that the operation favored Trump and disparaged Clinton. That is a lie. An analysis of that more than 3000 ad list shows that neither candidate was favored over the other (both had pro ads) and both were also disparaged. The idea, as bears out in the ads themselves, was to disrupt the entire election. Not swing it one way versus the other.

Stay with us as we read through this report for updated analysis.

Mueller Report Released, Media Spin Already in Action (Original Report, April 18, 2019 1:20 pm ET)

The mainstream media is at it again. The much-touted Mueller Report is hot off the presses, and already the media thinks they know everything there is to know. The release of the Mueller report brings on its slew of detectives and expert commentary. The media telling people what to think. New Right Network has obtained a copy of the full redacted Mueller report. Not only have we posted it for you to view, we are also going to provide color commentary. After we read it.

Others have told you beforehand what is not in the report. However, if the release of the report had yet to happen, how did they know what should be in it? Maybe Newsweek can shed some light. They produced an article smartly titled “FULL MUELLER REPORT LEAK MAY BE ‘MANDATORY’ TO ENSURE ITS RELEASE, SAYS PENTAGON PAPERS WHISTLEBLOWER”. In all capital letters, for shock value, obviously.

In other words, Newsweek and it’s “PENTAGON PAPERS WHISTLEBLOWER” want you to believe that the Mueller report is being dissected. Moreover, they want you to think that parts are hidden that should not be hidden. This is hyperbole, and untrue at that. One thing they are not telling you is that the Mueller team, including Mueller himself, was helping in the redaction process. Believe it or not, there is information in the Mueller report which means nothing to the overall report.

A Call for Basic Human Decency

Even Ken Starr called for decency regarding potentially embarrassing information, saying it needs to be redacted for obvious reasons. From The Washington Examiner: “Ken Starr, the independent counsel who investigated former President Bill Clinton, said Tuesday that ’embarrassing information’ should be scrubbed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before it’s released this week. He referred back to the Starr Report 20 years ago, which contained graphic details of Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.”

Starr pleaded with Congress for “basic human decency”. He stated that he had no idea nor concern about the Clinton investigation report being released to the public. Starr said he did not want the report released because it contained private sensitive information. He also added, “So there should be a process. As we have seen with Bill Barr, going through the report. Not just putting it out there without regard to privacy. Apart from legality, just privacy, and basic human decency.”
