Since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report, several questions have been asked as to why certain things were not investigated, and key players were never interviewed, according to President Trump.
Perhaps the most glaring omission is Mueller’s failure to consider that the infamous “Steele Dossier” – which used Kremlin sources – could have been Russian disinformation itself.
Asking that very question, the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel opines on this “stunning omission.”
Politicians keep reminding us not to lose sight of special counsel Robert Mueller’s broader assignment: to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. If only someone had reminded Mr. Mueller.
One of the biggest failures of the Mueller probe concerns not what was in the final report, but what was not. Close readers will search in vain for any analysis of the central document in this affair: the infamous “dossier.” It’s a stunning omission, given the possibility that the Russians used that collection of reports to feed disinformation to U.S. intelligence agencies, sparking years of political maelstrom….
Well gee, maybe it’s because he knew it was concocted by US and british intelligence agencies? But then what does that say about his own complicity in “russiagate”?
They just can’t pass up an opportunity to whip up public hysteria and support for war with russia can they?
