On Friday the office of special counsel Robert Mueller announced that a grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals, along with 3 Russian entities for ID fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.
In today’s nothing burge Mueller discovered that a Trump volunteer unwittingly provided Trump signs to a Russian “posing as a grassroots activist.”
This is all they got.
There never was Trump-Russian collusion so now they’re just making stuff up.
Rush Limbaugh ripped Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during his live performance explaining the nothing burger after the charges were announced.
This was hilarious!
ROSENSTEIN: The indictment includes eight criminal counts. Count 1 alleges a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States by all of defendants. The defendants allegedly conspired to defraud America by impairing the lawful functions of the American Election Commission, the United States Department of Justice and the Department of State. Those organizations of the U.S. government are responsible for administering federal requirements for disclosure of foreign involvement in certain domestic activities. Count 2 charges conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud by Internet research agency and two of the individual defendants. And Counts 3 through 8, charge aggravated identity theft by Internet Research Agency and four individuals. Now there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.
RUSH: Oh no!
ROSENSTEIN: There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered in the 2016.
RUSH: Again! Again they’re telling us!
ROSENSTEIN: Everyone charged with the crime is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court. At trial, prosecutors must introduce credible evidence that is sufficient to prove each defendant guilty beyond any reasonable doubt to a unanimous jury. The special counsel’s investigation is ongoing. There will be no comments from the special counsel at this time.
RUSH: Obviously, because there’s nothing here.
ROSENSTEIN: This indictment serves as a reminder —
RUSH: Of nothing!
ROSENSTEIN: — that people are not always appear to be on the Internet. The indictment allegations that the Russian conspirators want to promote discord in the United States —
RUSH: We knew this!
ROSENSTEIN: — and to undermine public confidence in democracy. We must not allow them to succeed. The Department of Justice will continue to work cooperatively with other law-enforcement intelligence agencies —
RUSH: I can’t believe this.
ROSENSTEIN: — and with the Congress to defend our nation against similar current and future efforts. I want to thank the federal agents and prosecutors.
RUSH: Okay, that’s it. That’s it Take it out. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announcing indictment of 16 Russians that didn’t do anything. First thing, it’s a Friday. It’s in the middle of a shooting story down in Florida, and Mueller did not announce any of these. Did you hear? He stressed that in all of this nefarious activity, there wasn’t one American involved. There wasn’t one American that benefited and there is no evidence that any American was involved or benefited. This has been in every leaked story on this subject, starting with the day Trump was elected.
Every deep state-sourced story, thousands of words alleging collusion, and in every story there was at least one line that admitted, “To date, no hard evidence of the allegations has been found, da da da,” and he said it here again. He repeated, in effect, in these indictments that no Americans are involved, no Americans helped. There is no evidence this helped any particular American or harmed any American. This business that these Russian snakes did rallies for Trump and against Trump on the same day in New York City? (laughing) Sorry, what are we supposed to take from that?
