Phony Mueller Investigation Witch-Hunt Indictments

By Stephen Lendman

The indictment of 13 Russian nationals and entities didn’t rise to the level of a grade B Hollywood script.

It tried shifting attention from Devin Nunes’ damning memo, revealing serious Russiagate FISA abuses.

They were also a way for Mueller to try unjustifiably justifying his witch hunt investigation - proving nothing but Washington’s dark side, its diabolical agenda, its anti-Russia hysteria.

After months of witch hunt investigations and millions of dollars wasted, Mueller indictments proved no improper or illegal Trump team/Russia connections, no Russian meddling in America’s electoral process - what Russiagate is all about.

Announcing the indictments, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said “there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity (sic).”

“There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the indictments absurd, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova saying:

“(T)he US Department of Justice believes there were” 13 Russian meddlers…”interfering in the US election? Thirteen…versus the budgets of the security agencies that are measured in billions of dollars? Versus the intelligence, counterintelligence and top-notch technologies? Isn’t it absurd? Well, that’s the US political reality nowadays, you know.”

Russian nationals are charged with the “crime” of free expression, using social media and other means to express views, what millions of people worldwide do all the time - in America a First Amendment right.

There’s nothing in the charges about Kremlin meddling in the US 2016 presidential election, nothing about Trump team/Russian collusion to defeat Hillary, no evidence of “impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of government” - just baseless claims without proof.

The charges were absurd, offensive and contemptible, smacking of Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany. No legitimate tribunal would accept them.

No Russians will be extradited to America. Putin wouldn’t hand over Edward Snowden to Washington, a US citizen. He won’t let Russian nationals face kangaroo court injustice.

Justice Department indictments would be much ado about nothing if the political and geopolitical stakes weren’t so huge.

They suggest Kremlin involvement to an impressionable public, heavily influenced by daily anti-Russia media propaganda, by Russophobic congressional members.

It’s unknown what Mueller intends next. More witch hunt indictments may follow.

Russiagate is a national disgrace, McCarthyism on steroids against an elected president for defeating  media darling Hillary.

It’s more evidence of US depravity, its contempt for governance the way it should be, its political, moral, ethical and legal degeneracy, its villainy beyond redemption.

Rule of law principles were discarded long ago. Tyranny replaced them heading toward becoming full-blown.

Indicting ordinary US citizens for free expression criticism of government wrongdoing may follow targeting Russian nationals - charges against them wrapped in the American flag to give them a phony veneer of legitimacy.

Friday was a dark day in Washington like so many others preceding it - likely much worse yet to come.

Its road to hell is paved with ill-intentions, endangering everyone everywhere.
