Trump claims vindication in tweet following Mueller indictment of Russians Trump claims vindication following Mueller indictment of Russians 11 Hours Ago | 00:57 A federal grand jury has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for alleged illegal interference in the 2016 presidential elections, during which they strongly supported the candidacy of Donald Trump, special counsel Robert Mueller´s office said Friday. The indictment says that a Russian organization called the Internet Research Agency sought to wage "information warfare" against the United States and to "sow discord" in the American

That´s it?? Tens of millions of dollars to find out, uh, really, that foreigners are commenting on our politics in social media sites? How monumentally embarrassing!

I have a question for Mueller - Why in the world would Putin have wanted Trumpto win?

Answer - he wouldn’t.

I have no doubt that Putin has Illary’s 33,000 deleted emails - after all, what Russian president wouldn’t get his intelligence agency to hack into a server with the url “clintonemail.com”?

Putin could have blackmailed Illary every minute of every day of her presidency. He could have shared those emails with his pals in other countries and let them blackmail her as well - Iran? North Korea? Cuba?

Finally, he knew from 30 years of evidence that she was for sale.

Trump is none of those things. Anyone with some honesty and a bit of functioning logic has known all of this for almost 2 years.

Which means that Mueller and his team, supposedly intelligent lawyers all, are conducting a sham investigation and a witch hunt while the true culprit is sitting in her web in Chappaqua like Tolkien’s Shelob.

Do read the indictment. The operation that the Ruskies ran (at considerable expense) resulted in feeble minded tweets snd posts that were anti-Hillary and pro-chaos. They supported Trump and Bernie not to influence the outcome of the election but to sow seeds of discontent. Didn´t work. The events they organized and their tweets etc were so naive and ridiculous that they influenced nobody.

#2 Amen a thousand likes! Putin knew that the Clinton´s were for sale from the transfer of our missile technology to China for campaign dollars to the fraudulent sale of 20% of our uranium to Russia for millions in kick backs to the Clintons!!!! No way Putin wanted Trump to win. Just more fake news from the msm propaganda machine like the Florida shooter was a white supremacist instead of a psychotic drug laden misfit who had mass killer written on his forehead which everyone ignored.

If you want to talk about sowing seeds of discontent, isn’t that what this entire investigation is intended to do? This whole investigation is nothing but a figleaf for Hillary and an attempt to undermine Trump by sowing seeds of discontent.The real crime is the investigation itself, and the misuse by the Democrats of our levers of power.

Right finding, wrong conclusion. The fly in the MSM´s ointment is that Trump did not need any help to win and that´s killing them. Nearly the whole US map was painted red on election night and I don´t believe 13 Russians could accomplish that. The PIAPS failed through her own volition, get over it.

SMOKE SCREEN!! Mueller has noticed his Buds at FBI AND DOJ are on the Hot Seat. Nunes and Grassley are still moving forward, diging up more and more proof that it wasn´t the Russians who were corrupt, it was the Rogue employees in our own Government. So, Mueller decided to throw up this smoke screen to try to get the Public away from their interest in what is happening in Washington. Not going to work!! We´re zeroed in on everything coming out of the Nunes/Grassley investigation. Nice try though!

Mueller nabs 13 Russians in Probe...investigation far from over.

Note to Mueller about ending witch hunt...
To quote the late John Belushi from "Animal House" movie..."Did we give up when the GERMANS bombed Pearl Harbor? "Nothing is over till we say it´s over."

To Mueller...we have probably been doing the same thing to them because that´s the spy game.

Note to Mueller...I doubt very much that Putin is preparing extradition papers to get these spy´s into our country for prosecution.

Note to Mueller...End the witch hunt. As Obama famously said in 2012...you lost.

And the reason they did that was because Hillary was such a put together, hard liner, up-scale fighting´ negotiator with all the answers to Putin´s what ever. Her clever handling of Benghazi proved it. She was so brave and all facing down that sniper fire in bosnia! Right? And what Russian leader could withstand her fierce Pro-America stand? Oh, Susanna! Yeah- I can see why Russians would want a tough, business oriented, highly successful negotiator to be America´s leader. Hahahaha! CNBC people and Mueller- what a combo!

Didn´t Barack Obola interfere with the British brexit vote, threatening retaliation against the British people?
Remember what Lady Lucifer said about all of this. She said there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and that a billionaire family in NYC provided the ´analytics´ to the Russians, to target rust belt states for Trump.
Herr Mueller´s investigation will never end. It will become the equvalent of the Inspector Javert pursuit of a thief whole stole a loaf of bread in Les Miserables, unending and ruthless.

I heard Rosenstein live Friday when he made the announcement. He clearly said:
1. the Russians worked against Hillary
2. and for Trump
3. and also worked against Trump.
The newscast 2 minutes later reported 1 & 2. But left out 3.
3 is clearly exculpatory to the Russian Trump collusion story and the media suppresses it.
And they wonder why we call them fake news. I searched the internet, finding a news report about the Russians working against Trump was like the Holy Grail.

Thank you # 25. My thoughts exactly. Smoke Screen, decoy on a Friday especially after the FBI screw up in the Florida school massacre on Wednesday. Let´s change the subject. Right?? Especially as the former Director of the FBI with many friends there. This was a way of throwing a bone to the American people who are paying for this stupid charade.

Sorry Bob, your impeccable reputation is now tainted with this jerky assignment. You can thank Hillary Clinton and her gang for originally concocting this ploy. You should have known better and baled out of this nothing burger job months ago.

I guess you had to come up with something to give us and this is your way of justifying this ridiculous investigation based on nothing but Democrat sour grapes.

As for the Russians trying to meddle in our elections... nothing new there. We know all about them. There´s even a current and popular TV serial called The Americans about a Russian undercover couple based in Washington DC trying to interfere in our country´s politics.

The apparent reason for this indictment to be made public at this time is that Robert Mueller, with his investigation under attack, needed some basis to inform the public that Russians came to the USA to sow “discord” in the election, giving Mueller a basis to keep his investigation going, with the objective of undoing the election by removing President Trump from office after charging him with obstruction of justice involving a crime that never existed. Otherwise the indictment would have been kept secret with efforts made to encourage those Russians to travel to the USA where they could be apprehended.

Remember in order to carry out their alledged criminal conspiracy, those 13 Russians had to enter the USA as early as 2014, long before Trump ever announced that he was running for President. To do that those Russians applied for and received visas to enter the USA by the Obama Administration.

If there was any “collusion” between US politicians and foreign countries to effect election results, it was between the Democrats and Mexico. Before the election Mexican consular officers stationed in the USA conducted voter registration drives encouraging Mexican citizens in the USA, both illegally and legally, to vote for Hillary Clinton who had called for a massive amnesty for illegal aliens. Effectively Mexican agents employed in the US Spanish language media consistently called for their audiences, most of them Mexicans, to vote for Clinton. A few weeks before the election, Barack Obama appeared on Spanish language TV and effectively encouraged foreigners to vote for Clinton if they felt like they were citizens, but that’s not what the law says, as only US citizens can lawfully vote in US elections. You would have to be pretty naive to believe that those efforts did not cause large numbers of Mexican citizens to unlawfully vote in the election.

We ALL have to be very careful here. We could be making a monumental error by jumping to the wrong conclusion based upon one single word. I don´t know if the problem originates with CNBC, Mueller himself, our sloppy reading, or something else entirely.
FTA: The defendants allegedly conducted "information warfare" against the United States election process to help Donald Trump win.
The single critical word is: TO. As in, "TO HELP Donald Trump win."
The piece as it is written clearly states that the trollers targeted our 2016 election FOR THE PURPOSE OF helping Trump win. How can they know THE INTENT when they haven´t yet spoken with those indicted?
An accurate conclusion would be: The defendants allegedly conducted "information warfare" against the United States election process WHICH HELPED Donald Trump win.
THAT statement would be TRUE and could be substantiated. It basically acknowledges that the trollers actions would´ve helped WHOMEVER won---even Hillary.
So are we sure Mueller actually accused the Russians of intentionally setting out with the specific goal of helping Trump win? Or is this just another case of sloppy journalism or careful parsing---perhaps specifically designed to create a false impression?

#34. What the Democrat lawyers on the Mueller team effectively did when they composed the indictment was to give the Democrats a talking point by insinuating that the alledged Russian conspirators worked against Hillary Clinton and in favor of Donald Trump. In other words, with the indictment as a basis, the Democrats can now go on indoctrinating their low information voter base and others who simply hate President Trump that the Russians stole the election from Clinton and gave it to Trump even though there is no evidence that such a theft actually occurred.

This is merely a way to justify his investigation and all the money he has spent so far. What does this have to do with breaking down Manafort´s door at 6 AM and holding them under gunpoint while their entire household was ransacked? Getting illegal FISA warrants to surveil Flynn, Carter and hence everyone in his world for years?

Brennan, Clapper, and all of them were whining 2 years ago that the Russians were trying to interfere in our elections. The word interfere was misused from the get go... to imply they actually produced election fraud with the help of Trump! COLLUSION That was the whole basis of the SP probe.

Why was there never any mention of Russian collusion with the Hillary camp in all the months leading up to this? Because Mueller wasn´t looking at that. No indictments for Steele? Blumenthal? Shearer? How can that be?

This is a sham. Cut your loses and take what little you got, Mueller, because the American people are on to your scam.

Assume a world wide shadow government Assume a rich America loving candidate who was never going to use their money or join their Bohemian Grove. He knew all the globalists, and paid them to play. One day, after some soul searching, he was "woke" to see the Spiritual as well as Cultural war. He sees his America leaderless, with whorish compromised Bohemian choices on both sides. America is lost, bankrupt, decimated militarily, in a race war, and divided. America has to fall. Assume Paula White or Franklin Graham opens his eyes to why Pelosi led the vetting of an unqualified racist pervert with sealed ID papers to usurp the seat of power. And didn´t this smooth operator destablize the Middle East and Europe in no time? Assume they said: "God has revealed you are the only one to beat back this truly demonic, last of the Age of Grace, parliament of whores. And Trump, age 72, rich and streetwise, teetotaler and drug free [doesn´t even get that sorcery], a "middle of the road Presbyterian} with a Catholic wife -- in the time of Francis the Lightbringer and Obama the Lightbringer -- is taking on a challenge never faced by any President. Much harder. Requires prayer with fasting, and a new and discerning set of counselors for this time of delusion and offense just before the II Thessalonians 2 "departure."

When has it become illegal to talk politics and share views over the internet? Mueller is full of bunk.

As for why Russia would favor Trump over Hillary? Syria might have something to do with it. Obama was trying so hard to overthrow the Asaad regime he was supporting ISIS. Russia did not want to see a continuation of that policy under Clinton.

FTA: "to ´sow discord´ in the American political system by using fictitious American personas and social media platforms and other Internet-based media."
- Really? Like Obama´s Pajama-boy did? Or the fake polls? Or like the "unnamed sources" and "a source who desires to remain anonymous?"

"The defendants also engaged in operations to "denigrate" Republican primary opponents of Trump such as senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Florida´s Marco Rubio, the indictment said."
- As a Ted Cruz supporter, I think I met some of these Russian dupes right here on Lucianne! lol

"None of the defendants is in custody."
- IOW, this is another Mueller "nothing-burger" indictment. So far as I know, there is NO U.S. Statute against false personas on the Internet. Most people don´t even connect to the Internet, much less follow some B.S. Twitter feed.

Mueller is burning taxpayer dollars to cover Hillary´s and the DNC´s backsides with their collusion with Russia for money through the Uranium One sale to fund their Party and Campaign. That´s the "collusion" and quite easily proven.

Lets also have an article about:

"US News Media conducted
´information warfare´against US during
election to help Hillary Clinton win"

Seems to me that polling was dishonest, reporting on so called mainstream media was dishonest. Maybe many, many Americans were independent and did their own research on who to vote for, they needed no one to tell them who to vote for nor help voting for their preferred candidate, i.e. Donald Trump

Please forgive the second post but how many elections does the US interfere in to get the candidate in a country they want. Didn´t Obama interfere in Israel´s elections? How about other countries. So stop with the faux outrage.

This meandering fool Ferris Mueller is on the mother of all fishing expeditions. His taxpayer funding should be shutoff immediately and he be investigated...this situation is totally insane!

Look! Squirrel! RUSSIANS!!!

Gimme a break. With Mueller and Rosenstein in the political crosshairs following release of the Nunez memo, it is CYA time.

First, Russian operatives (spies, for those in Rio Linda) are now accused of doing what black ops agents and similar are paid to do. Ours do likewise: it is simply the "verify" part of "trust, but verify", and if you can stir up a bit of mischief among your adversaries: so much the better. No one should be surprised.

Second: Does anyone really expect that these operatives will ever be punished or in any way held "accountable"? Worst case is probably another spy swap.

Third: Rosenstein´s presser was held on the Friday of Presidents Day holiday weekend. Typical info "dump".

Fourth: Rosenstein´s no Americans "knowingly participated" fits the Susan Rice / James Comey coverup pattern. Nothing to see here regarding Hillary or our former Emperor, of course.

Finally: What, again, is justification for continuing the Mueller investigation, now that the Russian culprits have been identified and indicted?

NYPD sex-crime detectives once had to hide a woman accusing Harvey Weinstein of assault — stashing her away from both the movie mogul’s lawyers and his cronies in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, a report said Friday.Investigators told New York magazine that they had Weinstein dead to rights in 2015 after he allegedly groped Italian model Ambra Battilana in his office. That was until Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr., whose office had close ties to Weinstein’s legal team, chose not to prosecute in a decision that still irks investigators who worked the case, according to the mag.

Illegal immigration, sidelined by the so-called “Trump effect” in the past year, is likely to surge 70 percent this year as undocumented aliens try to get into the United States before the president’s border wall is constructed and to take advantage of the booming economy, according to a leading expert. “We forecast total apprehensions and inadmissables across the southwest U.S. border at 590,000 for calendar year 2018. This would be the second highest year since 2010,” said Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisors in New Jersey.

In January, after a long day at his London office, Christopher Steele, the former spy turned private investigator, was stepping off a commuter train in Farnham, where he lives, when one of his two phones rang. He’d been looking forward to dinner at home with his wife, and perhaps a glass of wine. It had been their dream to live in Farnham, a town in Surrey with a beautiful Georgian high street, where they could afford a house big enough to accommodate their four children, on nearly an acre of land. Steele, who is fifty-three, looked much like the other

Among the nine films nominated for “Best Picture” at this Sunday’s Oscars, two portray the crisis Winston Churchill faced when he became prime minister in May 1940. “Dunkirk” recounted the miraculous evacuation of more than 300,000 soldiers from France, barely ahead of the Nazi forces advancing to annihilate them. “Darkest Hour” portrayed the run-up to Churchill’s historic June 4, 1940 address, which ended with the words that inspired a nation: “We shall never surrender.”

A finger on the lips, the universal gesture of silence, was all her rapist had to do to make sure that she didn’t report him to the authorities. In an article published on Jan. 19, a Colombian journalist, Claudia Morales, described her experience of being raped by a former boss. She declined to mention his name, but suspicions fell on Álvaro Uribe Vélez, Colombia’s former president and a current member of the Senate who was her supervisor in 2003 and 2004. Journalists at The New Yorker and Le Monde were among those who later reported on the speculation over Mr. Uribe, who denied he was the assailant.

A woman close to the Parkland, Florida, school shooter called an FBI tip line in early January to describe a young man with an arsenal of knives and guns who was “going to explode” and said she feared him “getting into a school and just shooting the place up.” “I just want to, you know, get it off my chest in case something does happen and I do believe something’s going to happen,” the woman said, according to a transcript of the January 5 call reviewed by CNN. The FBI admitted last week that it had failed to act on the tip. In a statement then, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that “we have spoken with victims and

It is both dismal and amusing to see the rationalizations of the diehard Kremlin collusionists after Robert Mueller’s spurious indictment of the 13 Russians who will never encounter the vagaries of United States justice. The charge of conspiring against the United States is nonsense, and the whole ambiance of the investigation now is that of a phantom consolation prize for the absence of a crime, a victim, or a culprit, all amplified by the hollow sanctimony of an official America that has meddled countless times in the elections of other countries (usually for the general good of the Western alliance).

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

McCabe´s employment was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions less than 48 hours before he would have qualified for his pension, a day that was also his 50th birthday. Rep.
