FBI Special Counsel Mueller’s latest warrant, to inspect records of the “inauthentic” accounts Facebook shut down earlier this month and the targeted ads these accounts purchased during the 2016 election, will have enormous implications on his investigation. For starters, all of those adamant Trump-Russia deniers will be put to sleep. Once and for all, Mueller will prove that Russia helped out Trump in the election. The question is, if Mueller can find any connections to the Trump campaign.
Mueller got a search warrant. This, means that he proved to a judge that a crime has been committed.
‘The key here, though, is that Mueller clearly already has enough information on these accounts — and their link to a potential crime to justify forcing [Facebook] to give up the info,’Asha Rangappa, a former FBI counterintelligence agent said. ‘That means that he has uncovered a great deal of evidence through other avenues of Russian election interference.’ BusinessInsider article
In addition, the fact that Mueller proved a crime to a judge, means there is a criminal, most likely a foreign entity. Mueller is focused on a foreign entity that spent money on these Facebook pro-Trump ads. All Mueller has to do is find a link between that entity and the Trump team, and Trump’s painstakingly built charade is up.
This is all occurring roughly the same time that the FBI secretly raided one-time Trump adviser Paul Manafort’s home. Yes, the same guy that reportedly owed as much as $17 million to companies controlled by a Russian oligarch and a Ukrainian businessman with political ties to Moscow. VanityFair article
Trump was convinced that this election scam could never lead back to him. Plausible deniability. Trump could explain to a judge, that he never committed an election crime. Russia wanted Hillary to lose. He had nothing to do with that. Trump can’t help it, if Russians infiltrated our election. But it isn’t that simple. If it can be proven that members of Trump’s campaign aided or even knew about Russian interference, the trail of breadcrumbs could lead right to the top of Trump Tower.
“It is a crime to know that a crime is taking place and to help it succeed. That’s aiding and abetting. If any Trump associate knew about the foreign contributions that Mueller’s search warrant focused on and helped that effort in a tangible way, they could be charged.” Said former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti.n BusinessInsider article
Donald Trump Jr. admitted to meeting with a Russian agent on hopes of getting dirt on Hillary. Trump’s own son admitted to Russian coercion.
Fellow democrats, we just have to grin and bear this shit-show for a little longer. In the end, we will be the ones laughing. If Hillary would have won, the Hillary bashing would have just gotten louder. Trump would have started Trump TV, and his base would have just gotten angrier. The only route for democratic success was for Donald Trump to win the presidency, and then go down in flames.
