If you are old enough to remember the Soviet-era propaganda approximately five years prior to the Polish solidarity movement, you are old enough to have a solid frame of reference for today’s announcement from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Truthfully, I never thought a constitutionally protected U.S. government apparatus would ever be able to pull-off propaganda so easily and readily consumed by an American electorate…. Alas, lesson learned. So here’s my take:
Setting aside the transparent timing of the declaration today; which is entirely based upon the reality of interlopers within our current government remaining focused on undermining President Trump policy and objectives; and accepting the anti-Russia propaganda narrative is a political weapon intended to elevate the interests of deep state officials and undermine any effort that might be adverse to their interests; a basic question about the indictment evidence is being avoided by all who are reviewing the content therein….
While the DOJ document is full of detailed accusations; which has given the narrative engineers a great deal of fuel; there’s a specific aspect missing. The entire indictment (full pdf below) is based on the premise of the FBI conducting some -unexplained and unsubstantiated- form of forensic data-analysis to formulate their detailed conclusions.
However, can anyone explain how this FBI forensic data-analysis was possible when the FBI was never allowed access to the DCCC, DNC and Clinton Campaign servers?
I have to laugh when reading hundreds of reports all praising the details of the Mueller indictment, but not a single person looking past the explained outcome and looking for the source material – from which the FBI created their conclusions. Why? Because it doesn’t exist…
The indictment is a grand exposition in explaining something without a single citation of factual evidence for how they arrived at the multitude of conclusions.
Consider this takeaway from a left-wing group who love the indictment:
“The indictment is impressive in its detail and the specificity of its allegations. It shows that Mueller has developed extremely good evidence. Where is it coming from?” (link)
You see, that’s the rub…. there is not a single piece of information explaining how Robert Mueller’s team arrived at their indictment conclusion. Just lots of conclusions.
Again, I repeat: the FBI was never allowed access to the DCCC, DNC and Clinton Campaign servers?
Obviously, it helps when the listed names on the indictment will never actually be indicted or come before a U.S. court to challenge the assertions. It’s very convenient for the DOJ to be able to make claims, knowing: A) no-one in media will demand the source evidence; and B) none of the accused will ever show up to be tried.
It would be very cool if Putin ordered them all into US court finding the best lawyers and demanded to see all the proof Mueller has dug up with muliti millions of tax dollars.
DT should advise Putin to call their bluff.
This all started with Hillary having the false story of Trump tee-teeing on hookers. Now it has all spun wildly, DANGEROUSLY out of control. It could not have gotten to this point, though, without Obama’s help.
Trump is not the threat. He’s the salvation.
I’ve been hoping someone would notice this. The Mueller indictments prove NOTHING except that any evidence of Russian involvement, or the lack thereof, will be buried deeply, preserved for a trial that will never take place. I’m amazed by the “conservative” pundits’ acceptance of these indictments as proof of Russian meddling… or proof of anything, for that matter.
