Washington, DC. American legal experts say the case handed to Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, as fatally open-ended, vague, and flawed. His instruction lists no federal statutes and invites a fishing expedition into trivial matters. Journalists covering the story appear to disagree on what Mueller is supposed to do: Is he to “oversee the investigation into ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials” or “investigate possible coordination between President Trump’s associates and Russian officials?”
The facts shed little light, if any, on collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian state to throw the election to Trump, as is evidenced by the deafening silence of anti-Trumpists.
So far this is about all that has been brought forth as facts in “KremlinGate:” Persons associated with the Trump campaign had contacts with Russians, some unsavory. Trump businesses, like other luxury property developers, had dealings with wealthy Russian buyers. Trump did not condemn Putin during the campaign and expressed a hope of improved relations.
The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign. If there was something sinister and illegal going on…the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible.
Political figures and outlets agree that the nexus of “possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign” does not include any evidence of collusion. Maxine Waters (D-CA) concedes there is no proof of collusion as does Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) joined by Trump enemy Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
If Trump can be singled out for an undated blank-check scavenger hunt, who is next? What if Republicans had achieved a similar investigation of Hillary Clintons ties to individuals hostile to the American system in her background, such as Viktor Pinchuk, George Soros, Loretta Lynch, and Rinat Akhmetov? There is little difference, other than a pro-Clinton media and a bunch of Clinton supporters upset their whore was not elected.
At the end of the day, all of Trump’s Russian problems are made in Kiev. If the FBI really wanted to prove foreign interference and election meddling, then the very real corruption cash, Ukrainian connections and who profits motives are all on the table, but then “KremlinGate” sells better, and to simple minded Americans is so much more understandable, than “KievGate.”
