Did Robert Mueller withhold exculpatory evidence?

December 4, 2018

  Yesterday we learned that Jerome Corsi has filed an ethics and criminal complaint against Robert Mueller for allegedly trying to threaten and intimidate him into making false statements under oath and today we are learning, in this story, that Robert Mueller is being accused of withholding exculpatory evidence for Donald Trump.

  Here is more:

The nine-page charging document filed with the plea deal suggests that the special counsel is using the Moscow tower talks to connect Trump to Russia. But congressional investigators with House and Senate committees leading inquiries on the Russia question told RealClearInvestigations that it looks like Mueller withheld from the court details that would exonerate the president. 

The article continues:

On page 7 of the statement of criminal information filed against Cohen, which is separate from but related to the plea agreement, Mueller mentions that Cohen tried to email Russian President Vladimir Putin’s office on Jan. 14, 2016, and again on Jan. 16, 2016. But Mueller, who personally signed the document, omitted the fact that Cohen did not have any direct points of contact at the Kremlin, and had resorted to sending the emails to a general press mailbox. Sources who have seen these additional emails point out that this omitted information undercuts the idea of a “back channel” and thus the special counsel’s collusion case.

But wait, there’s more:

Page 2 of the same criminal information document holds additional exculpatory evidence for Trump, sources say. It quotes an August 2017 letter from Cohen to the Senate intelligence committee in which he states that Trump “was never in contact with anyone about this [Moscow Project] proposal other than me.” This section of Cohen’s written testimony, unlike other parts, is not disputed as false by Mueller, which sources say means prosecutors have tested its veracity through corroborating sources and found it to be accurate.

Also notable, Mueller did not challenge Cohen’s statement that he “ultimately determined that the proposal was not feasible and never agreed to make a trip to Russia.”

“Though Cohen may have lied to Congress about the dates,” one Hill investigator said, “it’s clear from personal messages he sent in 2015 and 2016 that the Trump Organization did not have formal lines of communication set up with Putin’s office or the Kremlin during the campaign. There was no secret ‘back channel.’”

“So as far as collusion goes,” the source added, “the project is actually more exculpatory than incriminating for Trump and his campaign.”

  As bad as yesterday’s news was for the integrity of the investigation this news might be even worse. If these two stories are true it shows us that Robert Mueller had come to a conclusion before the investigation and is now trying to manipulate the evidence by creating the evidence it needs while hiding the evidence that does not support the predetermined outcome.

    Well I am not happy that Trump is considering one of the Bush’s AG for new AG… Just heard him say what respect he had for Comey.. yada yada… Let’s start off with a clean slate.

      Yeah, that is pretty disappointing to say the least!
