Pro-Trump Journalist Michael Goodwin Dishes The Goods On Mueller's Indictments!
New York Post author Michael Goodwin, often retweeted by President Trump, has written a column explaining how Mueller's indictments prove once and for all that President Trump won "fair and square."
From The NY Post:
After 18 months of Russia, Russia, Russia, we finally meet a cast of real Russians. But par for the convoluted course, they were pretending to be Americans.
The indictments obtained by special counsel Robert Mueller on Vladimir Putin’s attempts to create discord in the 2016 election and eventually support Donald Trump are important both for what they say and what they don’t say.
They offer huge victories for Trump — and thus more defeats for Hillary Clinton — but they don’t close the books on everything about 2016.
The very good news for the president is that the indictments are firm in saying that any Americans contacted by the 13 charged Russians, including Trump campaign associates, did not know they were dealing with Russians.
The indictments also state forcefully that despite their social media efforts, which ranged from creative to clumsy, the Russians had no impact on the election results.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced those findings in a flat monotone that belied their significance.
“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity,” he said. “There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”
According to Bloomberg, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe is set to continue "for months" with no set end date.
The unveiling today of indictments against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities has raised speculation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be nearing the end of - or has effectively finished - his probe into collusion between the Trump administration and the Russian government.
But sources are telling Bloomberg that this isn't true.
In addition to obstruction and the various financial improprieties of certain Trump associates, Mueller is still actively investigating collusion.
Earlier today, Trump tweeted in response to the indictment's release that it effectively vindicates the Trump campaign, since many of the activities cited in the document began in 2014.
Instead, Mueller's work is expected to continue "for months" with today's indictment representing only a small slice of the investigation.
Friday’s indictment of a St. Petersburg-based “troll farm” and 13 Russian nationals should be seen as a limited slice of a comprehensive investigation, the person said. Mueller’s work is expected to continue for months and also includes examining potential obstruction of justice by Trump, said the person, who requested anonymity to discuss an investigation that is largely confidential.
A federal grand jury indicted the Russians for what it alleged was a vast scheme to interfere in the 2016 election and help Trump win. But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said at a news conference Friday that there is “no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant” in the alleged scheme.
Given that there hadn't been any news from the investigation in a while, Mueller's indictment could be seen as an effort by to raise awareness about Russia’s capabilities as the 2018 US elections near. It's still possible Mueller will indict Americans for helping Russia.
Lawmakers from both parties largely applauded the indictment, saying it puts Russia on notice, and some Democrats said it effectively vindicated Mueller.

Mueller Has Just Confirmed What We All Suspected!
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russians on Friday confirmed what many of us already suspected about “Russian Collusion.” It appears the Russians used anti-Trump resistance to stoke division in the United States. They did not care who would win the election.
The Dailycaller reported: Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals on Friday confirms Russia sought to promote anti-Trump protests after the election as a way of sowing discord in American society.
Russian operatives organized a rally titled “Trump is NOT my President” in New York City on Nov. 12, 2016, less than a week after the election, the indictment states.
Facebook ads turned over to the House Intelligence Committee last year showed that more than 16,000 people RSVP’d as attending the protest.
The indictment notes that the operatives organized a pro-Trump rally in New York the same day as the anti-Trump rally, although there is no indication that the pro-Trump rally was as successful as the anti-Trump rally, which had thousands of attendees, including left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore. The Guardian reported 10,000 attendees at the anti-Trump event.
The Russian operatives staged a similar anti-Trump rally, “Charlotte Against Trump,” a week later in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Russian operatives sought to “promote discord in the United States and undermine confidence in democracy” by organizing the protests, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday.
Mueller’s indictment confirms what legal representatives for both Facebook and Twitter told a Senate panel on Oct. 31 last year: that Russian operatives sought to harm America by undermining public confidence in President Trump’s election.

Journalist Michael Goodwin Has Exposed Hillary Clinton's Deceit!
Michael Goodwin, the New York Post columnist cited and retweeted by President Trump, has exposed the many layers of Hillary Clinton's deceit.
From The NY Post:
For law enforcement, Congress and even journalists, exposing misdeeds is like peeling an onion. Each layer you remove gets you closer to the truth.
So it is with the scandalous behavior of the FBI during its probe into whether President Trump’s campaign conspired with Russia in 2016. One layer at a time, we’re learning how flawed and dirty that probe was.
A top layer involves the texts between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her married lover, Peter Strzok, the lead agent on the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. They casually mention an “insurance policy” in the event Trump won the election and a plan for Strzok to go easy on Clinton because she probably would be their next boss.
Those exchanges, seen in the light of subsequent events, lead to a reasonable conclusion that the fix was in among then-Director James Comey’s team to hurt Trump and help Clinton.
Another layer involves the declassified House memo, which indicates the FBI and Justice Department depended heavily on the unverified Russian dossier about Trump to get a warrant to spy on Carter Page, an American citizen and briefly a Trump adviser.
The House memo also reveals that Comey and others withheld from the secret surveillance court key partisan facts that would have cast doubt on the dossier. Officials never revealed to the judges that the document was paid for by Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee or that Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the dossier, said he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected.”
A third layer of the onion involves the revelations in the letter GOP Sens. Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham wrote to the Justice Department. They urge a criminal investigation into whether Steele lied to the FBI about how much and when he fed the dossier to the anti-Trump media.
