As Attorney General Barr Investigates the Investigators, Mueller Report Lies Are Being Unveiled
May 5, 2019 (EIRNS)—Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson points to the “malevolent farce that is Mueller and the Russia hoax,” in his May 3 and May 5 guest posts on Pat Lang’s blog Sic Semper Tyrannis. Johnson begins with the fact that the “Introduction” to the Mueller report justifies the investigation of Donald Trump by claiming as undisputed fact that, “the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.” But, according to Mueller, this “sweeping and systematic” interference, consisted of:
- a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton;
- Russian military intelligence conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents.
“You have got to be kidding me?” Johnson documents all the claims that Mueller made about Russia’s “wildly influential ... propaganda behemoth,” proof of which was the alleged Internet Research Agency spending $100,000 on Facebook ads. This apparently is more powerful than the $1.2 billion spent by the Clinton campaign, the DNC and PACs—far more than the $600 million spent by the Trump campaign and Republicans.
“The real propaganda here, in my judgment, is what Mueller and his team put out in their report. It is clearly written to feed a meme and promote animus towards Donald Trump under the guise of being an ‘official’ investigation.”
Johnson writes that he was stunned by Mueller’s claim that his investigation uncovered “numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.” The reality is that the Russian “links” to the Trump Campaign
“were manufactured by the FBI, the CIA and British Foreign Intelligence. This is both disingenuous and dishonest on the part of Mueller. The alleged Russian contacts were initiated by the FBI and the CIA, not the Trump team.”
