(National Sentinel)Â Epic Fail: Special counsel Robert Mueller has spent a year-and-a-half and $30-plus million attempting to “prove” that POTUS Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign “colluded” with Mother Russia to “steal the election” from Hillary Clinton, but he’s come up empty-handed.
So now, he’s going after Trump associates and allies like Dr. Jerome Corsi and Paul Manafort for ‘lying’ to investigators in order to give the impression that collusion occurred but he just couldn’tÂ prove it.
That’s what former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova thinks, and he said as much Wednesday evening during an appearance onÂ Fox News‘ “The Ingraham Angle.”
TheÂ â€œoriginal purposeâ€ of ]Muellerâ€™s Russian collusion probe has â€œfailed miserably,â€ he said, as evidenced by the fact that not a single prosecution or conviction Mueller has sought involves criminal election meddling on behalf of the Trump campaign.
So now Mueller’s got to adopt a different tactic in order to salvage his reputation and the credibility of his investigation.
“[T]heÂ thing to me thatâ€™s fascinating is all of a sudden the entire investigation by Mueller is focusing on people who are lying,â€ diGenova said. â€œWhy is that happening? The answer is very simple: The original purpose of the investigation was Russian collusion. Thatâ€™s failed miserably. Thereâ€™s no evidence of it.â€
So now Mueller is â€œcharging people with lying so that he can say in his report, â€˜I would have proved collusion but all these people lied and prevented me from doing it,’â€ diGenova noted, adding that â€œthis is the new narrative of Muellerâ€ and the â€œnew Russian collusion theme.â€
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino told Laura Ingraham that Mueller’s true focus has never really been on Russia but rather on ‘getting’ POTUS Trump and anyone associated with him.
“[I]fÂ Mueller was really doing his job, which heâ€™s not, heâ€™d be investigating the real Russian collusion, which thereâ€™s actual evidence of, which is collusion between the Hillary team and Russians,” he said, in reference to the so-called “Russia dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign and commissioned by a Democrat-aligned opposition research firm, Fusion GPS.
â€œThis is all about failure. This investigation is a complete failure,â€ diGenova said. â€œThe purpose was to investigate a conspiracy between the Trump campaign or the president and the Russians. There is absolutely no evidence of that in any of the cases that he has brought.â€
â€œThat is why [Mueller] is now focusing on these side characters to accuse them of lying or perjury because his narrative is going to be, â€˜I couldnâ€™t prove collusion because they wouldnâ€™t let me,’â€ diGenova added. â€œThis is where we are. This is the pathetic state of Muellerâ€™s handling of this. This is an embarrassment.â€
