Mueller adds more countries to collusion probe hoping to prop it up thru midterm elections

The New York Times published an article Saturday reporting that since the Russian collusion thing didn’t turn anything up on President Trump, interactions between Donald Trump, Jr. and two more countries are worthy of Robert Mueller’s investigation – that way it will surely continue on through the 2018 midterm elections.

Three months before the 2016 election, a small group gathered at Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son. One was an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation. Another was an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes. The third was a Republican donor with a controversial past in the Middle East as a private security contractor.


Erik Prince, the private security contractor and the former head of Blackwater, arranged the meeting, which took place on Aug. 3, 2016. The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president. The social media specialist, Joel Zamel, extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign; by that time, the firm had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump.

Basically, Trump Jr. took a meeting with two Arab princes, a tech guy, George Nader and Erik Prince. The Times then says that no one knows if any deal was ever struck, but there’s something for Mueller to look at in there somewhere .. right?

The meetings, which have not been reported previously, are the first indication that countries other than Russia may have offered assistance to the Trump campaign in the months before the presidential election. The interactions are a focus of the investigation by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, who was originally tasked with examining possible Trump campaign coordination with Russia in the election.

The Times seemed very concerned about the involvement of foreign individuals in U.S. elections without any proof that they had.

It is illegal for foreign governments or individuals to be involved in American elections, and it is unclear what — if any — direct assistance Saudi Arabia and the Emirates may have provided.

That same media outlet didn’t seem too bothered when a former British spy concocted a dossier on Donald Trump at the behest of Hillary Clinton, et al.

The left-leaning New York Times didn’t publish this account out of some sense of journalistic responsibility. First, since Mueller’s investigation is not open to public disclosure, through what leak did they get the story? Almost certainly an intentional one. This story has one purpose and that’s to give the Special Counsel’s prove enough credibility so that it can continue through the November elections – and President Trump knows it.

“Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!” Trump exclaimed in a tweet.

“….At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption,” he said.

He then lashed out at the FBI’s lack of interest in other actual crimes likely committed by members of the Democratic party.

“..in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.”

And then the questions we all want to know the answer to:

“What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server?” the president asked.

“….and why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?” the president tweeted.

The addition of the United Arag Emirates and Saudia Arabia, while ignoring Hillary’s server are proof that the health of the U.S. election is not the focus of Mueller’s probe. Instead, his office is being used to keep a dark cloud over Republicans ahead of this year’s elections.
