Robert Mueller has drawn first blood in his investigation into possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election, but there is an inexplicable absence of Russian collusion to be had.
Mueller has long stood accused of being at the helm of an incredibly scattered witch hunt, sponsored by the democrats who were hoping to delegitimize President Trump’s resounding victory in November by interjecting some phony conspiracy theories into the mix. This whole bizarre plan spiraled out of control with the appointment of Mueller, whose investigation has, in turn, widened to include any information that could be deemed helpful to the democrats, including the charges brought today against Paul Manafort.
“Donald Trump’s former presidential campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has been charged with conspiring to defraud the US in his dealings with Ukraine.
“The 12 charges brought against Mr Manafort and one of his business associates, Rick Gates, include conspiracy to launder money.
“They stem from an inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the US election.
“It has emerged that another adviser to Mr Trump admitted this month to lying about his links to Russia.
“George Papadopolous pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents about his dealings with an unnamed overseas academic who allegedly informed him that the Russians possessed ‘dirt’ on Mr Trump’s presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton.
“The charges against Mr Manafort and Mr Gates do not relate to Mr Trump’s campaign but to the alleged concealment of payments from the pair’s Ukrainian business dealings up to 2016.”
Of course, these charges being unrelated to the Donald Trump campaign of 2016 will have little affect on the way in which the mainstream media chooses to spin the story, with outlets all over the web this morning finding ways to interject the President’s name into their headlines regarding Manafort’s unrelated crimes.
Mueller will likely continue using these bullish tactics to attempt to topple the imaginary dominos that the left has been banking on since Trump’s election, especially now that we’ve seen the way in which the media will collude with the democrats in order to smear and slander the President due to his nominal relation to the men being charged.
In other words, the witch hunt is real, and is intensifying just in time for Halloween.
