After 2 years, the inevitable fall of Mueller came this week, just before his scheduled testimony in front of CONgress regarding his 448 propaganda piece labeled as a “report”.
If you missed it, I wrote a 4 part dissection of the Mueller report, showing it as the fantasy it truly was.
In the past 3 years, numerous independent Progressive journalists and myself have taken Russiagate apart piece by piece until only those with the highest level of cognitive dissonance could believe a single word of Russiagate. If you have ever heard one report on the subject by Aaron Mate or The Duran or Jimmy Dore and still believed Russiagate, you are among the cognitive dissonant people I mentioned.
If you still placed any stock in it, this week should have been the nail in the coffin for you. However, the events of the past week have been ignored by corporate media, so you may have missed it. Here is what happened.
First, unannounced by most media, the Russian firm Internet Research Agency had filed a lawsuit against the US federal government, protesting the claim that the IRA was funded by or had any association with the Russian government. This is something which Mueller made extensive claims of in his report. The IRA won the lawsuit. A US federal judge ruled that there was no evidence that the IRA had any direct connection to the Russian government and that such claims can no longer be promoted by the US government or its representatives. Which includes Mueller. So, if Mueller even infers during his CONgressional testimony that IRA is paid by or tied to the Russian government, he can be held in contempt.
So, when he testifies, what I expect is that he will avoid this by stating something along the lines of, “This is what is contained in my report.” Watch his wording very closely because it will be intentionally completely misleading. He will repeat this wording over over ad nauseum. Expect him to avoid any and every question which deviates from this specific form of statement. Count on it, bet money on it. Hell, bet ME money on it!
Then the DOJ announced that they are reprimanding the FBI for obtaining FISA warrants using the Steele Dossier, even though nothing in the dossier has ever been verified. The Steele Dossier was another major cornerstone of the Mueller report. So, Mueller cannot use the dossier, either.
That means the only things Mueller has left is his indictment of 12 GRU officers. Several problems with that. First, Mueller has offered absolutely no evidence to prove a single claim. Second, an indictment is an accusation. As a former NY attorney general once said, “I can indict a ham sandwich.” That doesn’t mean there is any validity or evidence. Lastly, the GRU has not existed since 2010.
The GRU was changed to the GU in that 2010. You can forgive the clueless media propaganda machine for using the GRU name but an official US government document announcing accusations against an entity which no longer exists under than name for nearly a decade? No, that is NOT excusable. This document was compiled by “Intelligence” officials. If they could not even be accurate about the name of an agency at the center of their accusations, then how accurate can you expect anything else in the report or his statements to be?! If you, yourself are willing to overlook such a glaring detail, then you must admit to yourself that you are willing to overlook anything which doesn’t fit the narrative in what you have turned into a religion. You don’t GAF about the truth, all you want is hatred, anger and blame.
Or maybe you and Mueller just watched “Despicable Me” one too many times. You do know that’s where Gru got his name from, right?
So I am going to be fairly interested in what Mueller has to say in his testimony. Or wondering if something will happen to prevent him from testifying at all. Whether he does or does not, don’t expect anything more, anything different. It will be the same baseless conspiracy theory we have heard for three years with exactly the same amount of “evidence” as on day one. He will refer exclusively to his report as I stated above with no variation or alteration of any kind.
