Robert Mueller’s entire reputation lies on his Russian collusion investigation.
He has made it so partisan that being proven wrong could end his career.
And that could come soon, as he just lost his last shred of credibility with a major revelation.
The past year of Robert Mueller’s life he’s had one goal: Prove that somebody in the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.
So far, he has produced virtually nothing proving that.
But much of the public’s perception of his investigation might say otherwise.
The biggest bit of proof that Mueller has dropped has to do with a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort hosted in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer.
In the end, that meeting meant nothing and was nothing more than a sideshow.
Even Robert Mueller doesn’t seem to think much of it considering he never reached out to the lawyer who met with the two.
Despite that, many believe that Paul Manafort was involved in colluding with Russians.
But as it turns out, there is no real proof that he has had any contact with Russian officials.
Paul Manafort’s legal team has revealed the government has provided no proof that there was any contact.
That means that Robert Mueller has even less of a case than much of the public previously thought.
As reported by The Federalist:
“In a new filing demanding a full hearing on what Paul Manafort’s lawyers say is a series of illegal governmental leaks about his case, his legal team also reveals the government has provided no evidence of any contact between Manafort and Russian officials.
The special counsel’s office says it has no evidence in its possession responsive to Manafort’s request for transcripts, notes, or tapes of any and all conversation or contacts between Russian intelligence or government officials and Manafort, according to the filing.
This revelation, and the series of potentially false and illegal leaks from myriad government officials claiming they had such evidence, call into question the legal basis of Mueller’s probe of Manafort, which was ostensibly launched to ferret out illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and foreign officials, Manafort’s attorneys say.
Despite multiple requests to provide any evidence detailing contacts between Russian officials and Manafort, “the Special Counsel has not produced any materials to the defense — no tapes, notes, transcripts or any other material evidencing surveillance or intercepts of communications between Mr. Manafort and Russian intelligence officials, Russian government officials (or any other foreign officials),” the filing in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District Virginia says. “The Office of Special Counsel has advised that there are no materials responsive to Mr. Manafort’s requests.”
“Accordingly, if the representations of the Special Counsel are accurate, and there is not, in fact, any evidence of communications between Mr. Manafort and foreign officials, then the perpetrators of this elaborate hoax must be identified and punished and the substantial unfair prejudice to Mr. Manafort must be remedied,” the filing continued.”
With each day that goes by, Robert Mueller loses more and more credibility.
Only those on the firm anti-Trump position still believe him, and they only want Mueller to stick around for the pipedream of him providing evidence that would allow Trump to be impeached.
Many are speculating that Mueller’s investigation could be coming to an end quickly.
