The latest news in the Mueller FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has been released. Special counselor Robert Mueller has dropped close to twelve indictments on Russian operatives because he has evidence they interfered with the 2016 presidential election. However, there is no proof or allegation that the White House administration colluded with these Russians.
These Russian operatives who were allowed into the United States, their visas were approved by none other than former Secretary of State John Kerry.
The Gateway Pundit reported,
“After sixteen months of investigations and over a year-and-a-half of the FBI and Obama administration spying on Donald Trump, his family, his business, his campaign, his transition team and his administration — Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped an absolute nothing-burger today in announcing charges against Russian operatives who sullied the US election process.
The Mueller Special Counsel has yet to look at Saudi donations to Hillary Clinton or Clinton campaign collusion with Russia. The Mueller Special Counsel has yet to look at the “hacked” DNC servers or have not attempted to contact Julian Assange from Wikileaks. The indictment today contained the same Russian Facebook ads that were released in November 2017 by the House Intelligence Committee. Mueller and Democrats want you to believe these Russian Facebook ads flipped the election to Donald Trump.
But at least half of the ads are pro-Hillary. And Russia claims half of their paid ads ran after the election and 25% never ran at all. Facebook announced previously the Russian ads comprised .004% of their advertising during the election. Then there’s this. The Kerry State Department approved the visas for the Russian operatives to travel the US in 2014 through 2016 and attempt to interfere with the US election process.”
The Daily Beast reported,
“Multiple sources familiar with the Senate intelligence committee’s investigation tell The Daily Beast that Republican and Democratic staffers there have spoken with numerous people who worked in the State Department under then-Secretary of State John Kerry. Tom Malinowski, who was Kerry’s assistant secretary of state for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, told The Daily Beast that he spoke with Senate investigators. He said the meeting was informational and conversational, but didn’t elaborate.
Committee staff have also spoken with Jon Finer, Kerry’s chief of staff at State, according to a person familiar with that conversation. Both Democratic and Republican staff attended. Staffers spoke as well with Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs, according to another source. Nuland is a favorite target of Russian state media, which leaked her phone calls in 2014. And Carter Page, the Trump campaign adviser-turned-FBI counterintelligence surveillance target, blamed her for “fomenting” efforts that ousted former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych, incidentally, was one of Paul Manafort’s many controversial clients.
It isn’t surprising that Trump/Russia investigators would chat with former Foggy Bottom officials. The department’s diplomats have long tracked the Kremlin’s efforts to expand its regional hegemony—often using violent and illicit means. Malinowski, Nuland, and Finer all worked at high levels in the State Department while the Kremlin’s meddling efforts were underway.
Nunes, meanwhile, has promised to release information about the State Department’s potential role in the distribution of the Steele dossier. “We are in the middle of like whole phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this,” Nunes told Fox News in his first interview after the release of his controversial memo on surveillance of Page. “That investigation is ongoing and we continue to work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russian investigation.””
So the head of the State Dept is not responsible for the actions taken by the State Dept while under his control. Got it.

This entire investigation has been based on the assumption that President Trump and his people colluded with the Russians in order to win the 2016 presidential election. However, out of all the charges and indictments, there has been no finding to that effect. Manafort and Papadopolous have been charged but they were bad actors all along. Even when they weren’t associated with the Trump administration.
As President Trump has noted, this is the biggest taxpayer scam there ever was. While the Russians have no doubt interfered they have been doing it to other countries too not just exclusively in the United States. Yet, Democrats have made it seem as though this is something that it is not.
Instead of wasting federal tax dollars on this investigation the money should be spent on veteran benefits, lowering prescription drug prices, federal employee salaries, pension benefits and more. The American people don’t deserve to have their hard earned money wasted on something like this.
Share if you agree the investigation is a waste of time, waste of space, and waste of money.
Share if you agree it is time to move on to other more important things.
