(National Sentinel)Â Deep State: Talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh on Friday during his program weighed in on special counsel Robert Mueller’s announcement that 13 Russians had been indicted by a federal grand jury along with three Russian firms for alleged interference in the 2016 election.
Missing from those indictments, he noted, were Americans and, in particular, persons associated with the campaign of President Donald J. Trump, which was part of Mueller’s mandate.
In addition, in announcing the indictments, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that if any Americans had cooperated with what turned out to be a meaningless, clumsy effort, they did so unwittingly.
Rosenstein also noted that there is still no evidence that the Russian operation changed the outcome of the election.
Rosenstein:Â The indictment includes eight criminal counts. Count 1 alleges a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States by all of the defendants. The defendants allegedly conspired to defraud America by impairing the lawful functions of the American Election Commission, the United States Department of Justice and the Department of State. Those organizations of the U.S. government are responsible for administering federal requirements for disclosure of foreign involvement in certain domestic activities. Count 2 charges conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud by Internet research agency and two of the individual defendants. And Counts 3 through 8, charge-aggravated identity theft by Internet Research Agency and four individuals. Now there is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.
Rush: Oh, no!
Rosenstein:Â There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered in the 2016Â election.
Rush: Again! Again they’re telling us!
Rosenstein: This indictment serves as a reminder â€”
Rush: Of nothing!
Rosenstein: â€” that people are not always appear to be on the Internet. The indictment allegations that the Russian conspirators want to promote discord in the United States â€”
Rush: We knew this!
Rosenstein: â€” and to undermine public confidence in democracy. We must not allow them to succeed. The Department of Justice will continue to work cooperatively with other law-enforcement intelligence agencies â€”
Rush: I canâ€™t believe this.
Rosenstein: â€” and with the Congress to defend our nation against similar current and future efforts. I want to thank the federal agents and prosecutors.
RUSH: Okay, thatâ€™s it. Thatâ€™s it. Take it out. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announcing the indictment of 16 Russians that didnâ€™t do anything. First thing, itâ€™s a Friday. Itâ€™s in the middle of a shooting story down in Florida, and Mueller did not announce any of these. Did you hear? He stressed that in all of this nefarious activity, there wasnâ€™t one American involved. There wasnâ€™t one American that benefited and there is no evidence that any American was involved or benefited. This has been in every leaked story on this subject, starting with the day Trump was elected.
Every deep state-sourced story, thousands of words alleging collusion, and in every story there was at least one line that admitted, â€œTo date, no hard evidence of the allegations has been found, da da da,â€ and he said it here again. He repeated, in effect, in these indictments that no Americans are involved, no Americans helped. There is no evidence this helped any particular American or harmed any American. This business that these Russian snakes did rallies for Trump and against Trump on the same day in New York City? (laughing) Sorry, what are we supposed to take from that?
