It’ a pleasure to post a story that has nothing to do with the coronavirus. Of course any story that exonerates President Trump will not get much play. From Larry C. Johnson at antiwar.com:
Big news Monday night: Buried amid the panic over the corona virus. Robert Mueller’s prosecutors got the green light to flush down the toilet one of their major cases alleging that Russia hacked the 2016 U.S. Presidential election – US District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich on Monday evening granted the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case against Concord Management and Consulting. This is more than a black eye. It is an indictment and rebuke of a corrupt group of prosecutors who worked for Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. They filed a case without foundation and smeared a group of foreigners that they (the prosecutors) did not think would fight back. Big mistake.
Let me take you back to February 2018. The headlines of the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, and The Atlantic blared the following propaganda:
Mueller’s Indictment Puts Details Behind Claims of Russian Interference
This was it. Real proof that the Russians helped elect Donald Trump. Here is the Atlantic‘s breathless take on the matter:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals on Friday connected to Russia’s Internet Research Agency – a Kremlin-backed outfit whose employees posed as Americans and spread disinformation online in an attempt to influence the 2016 election.
The indictment details highly specific allegations – including names, dates, and the text of private messages – that appear to substantiate central elements of the US intelligence community’s assessment that Russia made an active, concerted effort to subvert American democracy.
Did you catch that? This indictment is prima facie evidence that the flawed, disingenuous Intelligence Community Assessment put out in January 2017 was “substantiated.”
