Robert Mueller’s probe of possible Russian interference in the 2016 election has finally uncovered something shocking, but the liberals aren’t going to like it.
With democratic operatives insisting on sowing the seeds of doubt over the legitimacy of President Trump’s astounding electoral victory in November, it came as little surprise when former FBI chief Robert Mueller was appointed as a Special Counsel to an investigation surrounding possible Russian interference in the contest.
It took only a few weeks for Mueller’s investigation to reportedly go off the rails and into “fishing expedition” territory, with Mueller requesting a bevy of documents that seemed quite out of his jurisdiction. One such request sought information on President Trump’s tax returns – a highly contested bit of information that became a focal point of the liberal narrative during the election itself.
Now, after getting a good look at Facebook’s purported role in the Russian collusion conspiracy, it seems that there may have been something to it after all – but the nation’s progressives and liberals are not going to like what they hear.
“Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was the beneficiary of at least one of the Russian-bought political ads on Facebook that federal government officials suspect were intended to influence the 2016 election.
“Other advertisements paid for by shadowy Russian buyers criticized Hillary Clinton and promoted Donald Trump. Some backed Bernie Sanders and his platform even after his presidential campaign had ended, according to a person with knowledge of the ads.
“The pro-Stein ad came late in the political campaign and pushed her candidacy for president, this person said.
“’Choose peace and vote for Jill Stein,’ the ad reads. ‘Trust me. It’s not a wasted vote. … The only way to take our country back is to stop voting for the corporations and banks that own us. #GrowaSpineVoteJillStein.’
“The ads show a complicated effort that didn’t necessarily hew to promoting Trump and bashing Clinton. Instead, they show a desire to create divisions while sometimes praising Trump, Sanders and Stein. A number of the ads seemed to question Clinton’s authenticity and tout some of the liberal criticisms of her candidacy.”
Silly rhyme stunt notwithstanding, these ads being in favor of Green Party and Democratic Party candidates puts an enormous hole in the liberal narrative surrounding Donald Trump’s resounding win.
If the Russian “involvement” with the United States election was a wide ranging test of Facebook advertising’s reach, with no clearcut political stance, how could Donald Trump have benefitted solely, let alone with enough impact to have “stolen” the election from corrupt career criminal Hillary Clinton?
If the Mueller-led witch hunt continues to unearth evidence of democratic debauchery, expect to see the entire facade shut down immediately.
