The New York Times and Robert Mueller Try To Revive the Dying Russiagate

May 1, 2018 (EIRNS)—With Russiagate collapsing into “Muellergate,” and all the major players facing criminal prosecutions themselves, Robert Mueller and the New York Times cooperated in a rather desperate ploy to give the coup attempt against President Trump some new life. The Times ran a series of about 50 questions which Mueller supposedly wants to ask Trump, and which the Mueller team reportedly read to Trump’s legal team. Somehow the questions got leaked to the Times, although the Times does admit that it was leaked “by a person outside Mr. Trump’s legal team.”

Many of the questions are of the “Have you stopped beating your wife, yet?” variety, such as “What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?”

The President lost no time tweeting his response:

“So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were leaked to the media. No questions on Collusion. Oh, I see...you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!”

Also: “It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened! Witch Hunt!”
