I’m thinking that is a very real possibility after finding this out,
Lisa Page testified investigators had no proof of collusion when Robert Mueller was appointed: Report
Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted earlier this summer that more than nine months into the federal Russia probe, investigators had found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
“I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” Page told lawmakers during a closed-door deposition in July, according to Fox News.
The transcript shows Page stopped mid-answer, asking to consult with her counsel.
“It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, probably not nothing nothing, as we probably knew more than that by that point,” she went on to say. “But in the scheme of the possible outcomes, the most serious one obviously being crimes serious enough to warrant impeachment; but on the other scale that, you know, maybe an unwitting person was, in fact, involved in the release of information, but it didn’t ultimately touch any senior, you know, people in the administration or on the campaign. And so the text just sort of reflects that spectrum.”
Page had been answering a line of questioning by Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, who was pressing her on a May 2017 text exchange with former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair.
In a statement to Fox News, Ratcliffe said he “cannot provide the specifics of a confidential interview,” before adding: “But I can say that Lisa Page left me with the impression, based on her own words, that the lead investigator of the Russian collusion case, Peter Strzok, had found no evidence of collusion after nearly a year.”
Knowing this now, we can add the fact that Mueller’s scope of investigation has spread all over the map and has snagged up Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman and also David Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney.
Both have pled guilty to crimes not associated with Trump.
However, by investigating and charging Manafort, Mueller has opened a can of worms.
Let’s go back to October of 2017 to see how this ties in and to provide some evidence of my suspicions about the Mueller Investigations real purpose,
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson laid out details of what an unnamed source said of how former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort previously worked as a liaison between the Russians and the Podesta Group, a lobbying firm co-founded by John and Tony Podesta.
Manafort was working to advance “Russian government interests” in Washington, D.C. according to that source.
Carlson said the source scoffed at press accounts of the investigation conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in American politics, arguing it had little to do with the 2016 presidential election.
Transcript as follows:
Well, good evening and welcome to “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” We are beginning tonight with a story we just learned a few hours ago, a story that amazed us.
Last night on this show, we told you about how the Podesta group, a lobbying firm co-founded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign — and John Podesta and his brother Tony have been sucked into the independent counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of alleged Russian interference in American politics. Before last night’s show was even over, we got an email from a man with direct personal knowledge of that story.
The man, whose name we can’t reveal for the time being, is a former senior employee of the Podesta Group. He worked there for years. He said he was motivated to contact us by the disgust he felt watching media coverage of the Russia story. Not only were most reporters getting it wrong he said, they were getting it backward. The Russians were in fact deeply involved in American politics, but the real story had almost nothing to do with the 2016 presidential campaign.
Well, intrigued, we agreed to meet with that source today. He just left our offices here in Washington a couple of hours ago. The story he told us is astonishing. We will be following up on it, confirming more of it and bringing you details throughout this week and after.
But first, here’s an overview of what he told us: Media reports describe Paul Manafort as a central figure in the Russia investigation due to the several months he spent as Donald Trump’s campaign chairman. According to our source, that’s only half true. Manafort is indeed at the center of this investigation, but not because of his ties to Trump. In fact, Paul Manafort spent years working with the Podesta Group on behalf of Russian government interests.
That relationship extends back to at least 2011 when our source claims Manafort had dinner in Washington with both Podestas, Tony and John. In the years following, our sources says, he saw Paul Manafort in the Podesta Group offices, quote, “all the time.” At least once a month. Manafort was not there to socialize, he was representing Russian business and political interests, who sought to influence Capitol Hill, Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Obama administration.
Our source describes Manafort bringing what he called a parade of Russian oligarchs up to the Congress where they met with members and their staffs. But the central effort to extend Russian influence was focused on the executive branch, the Obama administration. The vehicle through which Paul Manafort worked for the Russians was a shell group called the European Center for a Modern Ukraine.
Now, the group supposedly was based in Belgium, but it had no actual offices there. It had in fact only two employees, both of them based in Ukraine. Their telephone number in Brussels rang in Kiev. It was a sham. Yet it did have a presence here in Washington. The European Center for a Modern Ukraine was a major client of the Podesta Group.
Now, why did the Russians choose the Podesta group? Well, because both Podestas were close to the Clintons and Hillary was then Secretary of State. She could get things done for the Podestas’ Russian clients. It was influence peddling, the most obvious kind.
And there you have it,
If Mueller nailed Manafort and got his cooperation, then he must also have been digging on this, the Podesta’s, Hillary Fucking Clinton and the rabbit hole that is which would eventually reach all the way to the FISA abuse scandal, and that would lead directly to one Barack Hussein Obama.
The FISA abuse scandal is waiting to break and it is going to implicate Rosenstein, Page, Comey and a group of other Obama administration flunkies in spying on a presidential campaign under color of law for political purposes. It could eventually lead to charges against a large group of Obama people and leads to yet another rabbit hole of possible investigations.
The scope of the criminality and the intertwining of all of these same people over the years is actually mind boggling.
Now do you see why I am wondering if Mueller isn’t really digging on all of this since there is absolutely no proof against Trump in the first place?
BTW, Mueller was involved in the Uranium 1 scandal also so this is all contingent on him having flipped.
There was a mysterious meeting between he and Trump just before he was appointed as Special Council.
That just adds to the speculation.
Everybody should stock up on popcorn.
If Trump declassifies the twenty redacted pages of the FISA application documents the Big Show is going to start.
Because the Russian Collusion story is just a preview of the Main Feature.
