Paul Craig Roberts: “The Result of Mueller’s Investigation: Nothing”

Donate

Written by Paul Craig Roberts; Originally appeared at paulcraigroberts.org

Robert Mueller discredited himself and his orchestrated Russiagate investigation today (Friday, February 16, 2018) with his charges that 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies plotted to use social media to influence the 2016 election. Their intent, Mueller says, was to “sow discord in the US political system.” https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-russia-indictment/u-s-charges-russians-with-2016-u-s-election-tampering-to-boost-trump-idUKKCN1G023G

What pathetic results to come from a 9 month investigation!

Note that the hyped Russian hacking of Hillary’s emails that we have heard about every day is no where to be found in Mueller’s charges. In its place there is “use of social media to sow discord.” I mean, really! Even if the charge were correct, considering the massive discord present in the last presidential election, with the Democrats calling Trump voters racist, sexist, homophobic white trash deplorables, how much discord could a measly 13 Russians add via social media?

Note also that the Trump/Putin conspiracy is also not present in Mueller’s charges. Mueller’s charges say that the Russians’ plan to sow discord began in 2014, before there was any notion that Trump would run for president in 2017. The link of the plot to Putin is reduced to the allegation that the plot was financed by a St. Petersburg restauranteur whose connection to Putin is that his business once catered official dinners between Russian officials and foreign dignitaries. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-russia-indictment/u-s-charges-russians-with-2016-u-s-election-tampering-to-boost-trump-idUKKCN1G023G

Finally, note that Mueller’s release of his charges in the face of dead news weekend means that Mueller knows that he has nothing to justify the massive propaganda onslaught against Trump for conspiring with Putin with which the presstitutes have regaled us. If the charges amounted to anything, they would have been released on Monday morning, and the presstitutes would have been handed by the FBI and CIA the news stories to file with their papers.

How did the 13 Russians go about sowing discord? Are you ready for this? They held political rallies posing as Americans and they paid one person (unidentified) to build a cage aboard a flatbed pickup truck and another person to wear a costume portraying Hillary in prison clothes.

How much money was lavished on this plot. A monthly budget of $1.2 million, a sum far too small to be seen in the $2.65 billion spent by Hillary and Trump and the $6.8 billion spent by all candidates for federal elective offices in the last election. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/election-2016s-price-tag-6-8-billion/

Mueller claims to have emails from some of the 13 Russians. If the emails are authentic, they sound like a few kids pretending to friends that they are doing big things. One of the emails brags that the FBI got after them so they got busy covering up their tracks.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has fallen for Mueller’s ruse.

Remember what William Binney, the person who designed the NSA spy program, said: If any such Russiagate plot existed, NSA would have the evidence. No investigation would be necessary.

One can conclude that Mueller and Rosenstein are fighting for their lives now that it is known that their spy requests for FISA court approval were based on deception. See: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/02/05/will-conspiracy-trump-american-democracy-go-unpunished/ Mueller has produced this silly indictment of individuals who are not the Russian government in the hope that it will keep the attention off the FBI’s deception of the FISA court.

As a special prosecutor Mueller has demonstrated the same lack of intergrity that he demonstrated as FBI director.

      Great term, I don’t think that anything illustrates it more clearly than the 911 cover up:

      “9/11 Investigation in Zionist Hands

      Immediately following the 11 September attacks, the Zionist network was methodically maneuvering behind the scenes to quash any legitimate investigation that might reveal what really happened that day. They made it their goal to control any and all angles of so called “investigation” so that they could quickly cover up any and all evidence pointing to Zionist involvement

      All appointed chief judges were Zionist Jews:

      Alvin K. Hellerstein – a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and has been involved in several high-profile 9/11 related cases including consolidated master case against three airlines, ICTS International NV and Pinkerton’s airport security firms, the World Trade Center owners, and Boeing Co., the aircraft manufacturer. Hellerstein is a dedicated Zionist and Israeli nationalist who has ties to the Jewish mafia dating back to 1956. Hellerstein’s wife is a former senior officer & current treasurer of AMIT. From its website it states: “Founded in 1925, AMIT is the world’s leading supporter of religious Zionist education and social services for Israel’s children and youth, nurturing and educating Israeli children to become productive, contributing members of society.”

      Michael B. Mukasey – This Orthodox Jewish judge oversaw the litigation between Larry Silverstein and insurance companies after 9/11. Silverstein was awarded billions. Mukasey prevented full inquiry into the Five Dancing Israelis incident who were arrested in connection with 9/11. He played a role in their release. He was later appointed attorney general by President Bush. He defended the patriot act, and he supports torture policies.

      Michael Chertoff – In charge of the Criminal Division in the Justice Department on 9/11. Essentially responsible for the 9/11 NON-investigation. He let hundreds of Israeli spies who were arrested prior to and on 9/11 go back home to Israel. He was also a prosecuting judge in the first terrorist attack on the WTC in 1993. Chertoff purportedly holds dual citizenship with the US and Israel. His family is one of the founding families of the state of Israel and his mother was one of the first ever agents of the Mossad, Israel’s spy agency. His father and uncle are ordained rabbis and teachers of the Talmud.

      Kenneth Feinberg – set up the victim’s compensation fund ($7 billion); controlled by a Zionist cabal, it managed to get 97% of the victims’ families to take money in exchange for dropping demands a legal investigation of 9/11.
      Sheila Birnbaum – Another key Zionist involved in the cover-up of 9/11 is Sheila Birnbaum of Skaddan, Arps law firm. Birnbaum was appointed ‘special mediator’ of the legal suits filed by the 3% of families who decided not to be bought off. Nothing of significance has happened with these claims since.

      Benjamin Chertoff – (cousin of Michael Chertoff) – Ben wrote the 9/11 hit piece in Popular Mechanics claiming to “debunk 9/11 conspiracy theories”. His use of ridiculous straw-man arguments largely discredits the piece though it is still widely quoted by defenders of ‘the official narrative’. He claims his relation to Michael Chertoff is “distant” but Chris Bollyn proves otherwise.

      Stephen Cauffman – Leader of NIST investigations which in total amount to a systematic coverup of the WTC 7 collapse. The NIST position remains that fire, together with minor damage caused by ‘ejected debris’ from the collapse of the North Tower situated a block away with WTC building 8 in between, brought down WTC building 7.

      9/11 Commission: Zionist controlled

      Philip Zelikow (Dual Citizen US / Israel) – 9/11 Commission Gatekeeper
      Zelikow was appointed the executive director of the 9/11 commission – the most powerful position of the committee. This Zionist Jew is responsible for concocting the contrived fiction that was presented as the 9/11 Commission Report – official narrative. The report contains hundreds of glaring anomalies, contradictions, omissions and downright falsehoods. It even manages to omit any reference at all to the collapse of Building 7 at 5:20 pm.

      Initially Henry Kissinger was appointed as executive director but surrendered the post after enormous protest. This paved the way for Zionist operative Zelikow to take the helm. Zelikow has numerous conflicts of interest that clearly inhibited his ability to tell the truth to the American people about the 9/11 terror attacks.

      Zelikow was a Bush Admin insider, having been on the transition team in early 2000. In 1989-91 Zelikow worked with Condoleezza Rice on the National Security Council for the George H. W. Bush Administration. In 1995, Zelikow and Rice wrote a book together. From 1996-98 Zelikow is director of the Aspen Strategy Group which also included people such as Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz as fellow members. After George W. Bush took office, Zelikow was named to a position on the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board [PFIAB], and worked on other Administration task forces and commissions. Zelikow position on the Commission made him its ‘Gatekeeper” enabling him to decide which topics would or would not be investigated. He was also secretly in contact with one of Bush’s close advisors – Karl Rove – throughout the gestation of the Commission Report.”

        The American public will one day realise who the real criminals were on 9/11 BUT will it be after the Zionist tyranny has completely looted the USA and decades of serfdom to Israel ?

        Only a full blown civil war can purge the Mafia style criminality in the USA I think.

          The US is at it’s debt capacity now, and the IRS is one of the planet’s leading organs of oppression. Only an economic collapse will bring revolution. Dejudification is the best path forward. My work here is being studied at the highest levels, as well as off planet. Implementation strategies are being developed. Once they’re far enough along, hopefully they will start to be put in use to move this process forward in a humane manner.

          • don

            Look at Japan 240% debt to GDP. I think the USA numbers are distorted and underreported because the money stoelen from social security somewhere around 2.5 trillion dollars which was sent to the war machine and medicare is not being counted in that debt.

          • RichardD

            Japan’s debt structure is different because included in government debt is a lot of commercial debt that isn’t usually part of government debt.

            US citizens are aware of the problem, which is why they elected Trump rather than Clinton. And Trump is having trouble with delivering on his America First campaign platform because of the opposition from the Jews and their collaborators. Hopefully once the Mueller investigation is shut down and they have less leverage on him, that will change.

          • Ace

            Off planet? Now that is one way to establish your credibility!

            Evidence establishes credibility, and I have it and am in the process of getting more.

    This is all jew hellywood scripted theatre to keep the sheeple occupied.They dont want them questioning the illegal wars of their neocon government.They just keep pumping out daily doses of fake news and has the effect of the sheeple cheering USA;USA,when in fact they are fighting for jewSA.

    • RichardD

      Yah, and it’s not working, which is why Trump beat Clinton with his America First anti Israel first platform. Unfortunately he capitulated to the baby rapers on a lot of issues once he got in office. Hopefully after this witch hunt is shut down that will change.

  • =Kory Walace

    Wow! what a let down all that time and money spent and this is what they came up with?

  • TiredOfBsToo

    “One can conclude that Mueller and Rosenstein are fighting for their lives now that it is known that their spy requests for FISA court approval were based on deception.”

    And a weak attempt to justify over a year on just plain BS. What will be interesting is whether those actually involved in meddling illegally in the 2016, like those in the FBI, Justice Department and Obama Administration, face REAL justice. Also, since Democrats seemed to be so worried about Russian collusion, where’s the investigation into all of the Russian collusion involving the Clinton’s and their charity(?) foundation?

  • peter

    After 1 year theatre and comedy they are must something vomit !

  • alejoeisabel

    How much money had the United States Government spent in overthrowing the Ukrainian government? FIVE BILLION DOLLARS! Such hypocrisy! How hypocritical to blame Russia for our corrupt and dysfunction electoral system.

  • Barba_Papa

    So its basically Whitewater all over again. Nothing to show for it, except for something which bears no connection whatsoever to the original charge. #witchhunt? Oh, I forgot, that’s #metoo.

  • so

    Its all just deflection from discussing the real problems my country faces. Poverty, corruption, bad economy, lousy paying jobs, endless war, infrastructure repair, affordable healthcare, real estate bubble, education and the list goes on and on. Everyday I walk down my street see things getting a little worse all the time. Homeless here, a foreclosure there. A guy struggling to keep his car on the road so he can keep his job because mass transit sucks. It adds up.
    Instead of investing in the destruction of the world it would be nice to make it work for everyone.
    Even Russia! I wish I could be optimistic for the world but i’m not.

    • RichardD

      Most of America is with you, I am. The Russians are well on their way to winning the Syria war. It looks like Trump is going to get the witch hunt shut down and the Jews off his back enough so that he can get more of America First anti Israel first implemented than he has, and stop capitulating to the Jews. And I’m going to try to do what I can in moving real positive ET contact forward to provide hope and opportunity for a better future than what we currently have with the evil Jew world order enslave humanity hegemony machinations.

      • Ace

        ET contact. You’re joking, right? Right?

        • RichardD

          No, I’m not joking.

  • RichardD

    Palestinians and Americans should work together on the dejudification of Israel, America, and our planet. To bring humanity one of the greatest gifts in human history, a planet free of Jews. Then we won’t have to watch this type of Jew orchestrated nonsense in the media every day. And deal with all of the problems created by the endless criminally insane Jew world order hegemony wars.

  • Aphelion

    I think the conversation prior to their announcement was pretty obvious: “Well, we found nothing, but we did spend a huge amount of money in this investigation, so before they hang us for waste of public funds – how about this…”

  • andy l

    Big deal Mueller you indicted some Russian trolls & bots which likely had zero effect on the voting intentions of millions of Americans. Alex Jones surely had a bigger influence! this was just showboating because none of these people will stand trial so what was the point other than to get a bit of news coverage that the investigation was making progress. Nearly a year & still zero evidence of collusion because there is none.

  • alpha7B5

    The Americans indeed are exceptionals, as actually every nation of this planet is. But, I’m afraid, in the USA there only are EXCEPTIONALLY SICK PEOPLE RUNNING THE COUNTRY! (I thank Gerald Celente for this one!)

  • Pareggiamoiconti

    Embarassing, really
