Russiagate Investigations Discredited, Continue Anyway

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

After months of investigations by Congress and special counsel Mueller, no evidence was found suggesting Russian collusion with Trump to harm Hillary and help him triumph last November.

No evidence exists. No collusion occurred, no Russian meddling in America’s electoral process or any others.

Ongoing sham investigations represent exercises in mass deception, exposing deep-seated Washington corruption, deplorable governance, and betrayal of the public trust – nothing else.

Fabricated accusations of Russian meddling in last November’s presidential election surfaced over a year ago.

Yet not a shred of evidence proves them – lots of smoke, no fire, clear proof of a corrupt political system too debauched to fix, a bipartisan conspiracy against democratic values, rule of law principles, and public accountability.

Russiagate investigations continue ad nauseam, one of the greatest hoaxes in modern times, most Americans none the wiser.

Polls show their minds have been manipulated to believe untruths, the power of media-supported repetitive persuasion, a virtual daily drumbeat of disinformation, Big Lies and fake news – failing to rise to the level of bad fiction.

Congressional investigations since January uncovered nothing. Special council Mueller’s work began with his appointment last May.

All he’s been able to come up with are charges against individuals connected to lobbying for Ukraine – unconnected to Russia or Trump.

Putting it mildly, Russiagate investigations by him and Congress laid an egg, proving one thing only – that no Illegal or improper Russia/Trump connections exist, no Russian meddling in America’s political process, nothing but Big Lies claiming otherwise.

The indictment against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates said nothing about Trump or Russia, Ukraine mentioned repeatedly.

The so-called investigation into Russia hijacking America’s political process seems farcical, a bad joke, much ado about absolutely nothing.

It’s well known that Manafort lobbied for Ukraine from 2006 – 2016. Yet no accusations of wrongdoing were levied until over a year after Russiagate surfaced.

Mountains of evidence show Hillary guilty of war crimes, racketeering and perjury. Yet no one in Washington dares lay a glove on her – not Congress or Trump’s Justice Department.

No special counsel was appointed to investigate her high crimes and levy charges. The double standard needs no elaboration.

Former FBI director James Comey rejected recommending criminal charges against her on any number of credible charges, despite loads of evidence justifying them.

Yet groundless accusations let the Russiagate probe persist. Trump most often is dead wrong.

He’s right about the “dishonest media” and “witch-hunt” investigations into alleged ties between his campaign and Russia, along with phony accusations of Russian meddling into America’s political process.

Guilt is shared by both right wings of its duopoly governance – the shame of the nation.
