Mueller’s Latest Move in Russia Probe Has People Scratching Their Heads

Robert Mueller’s latest move in his crooked Russia probe has many people scratching their heads.

He’s now going after so-called “Russians” who “hacked the DNC emails” during the 2016 primary.

There’s one big problem with that though, which is that the Wikileaks co-founder and editor in chief has said COUNTLESS times that his source for the emails WAS NOT Russia.

However, when have facts ever stopped Mueller from his witch-hunt?

From NBC News

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is assembling a case for criminal charges against Russians who carried out the hacking and leaking of private information designed to hurt Democrats in the 2016 election, multiple current and former government officials familiar with the matter tell NBC News.

Much like the indictment Mueller filed last month charging a different group of Russians in a social media trolling and illegal-ad-buying scheme, the possible new charges are expected to rely heavily on secret intelligence gathered by the CIA, the FBI, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), several of the officials say.

Mueller’s consideration of charges accusing Russians in the hacking case has not been reported previously. Sources say he has long had sufficient evidence to make a case, but strategic issues could dictate the timing. Potential charges include violations of statutes on conspiracy, election law as well as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. One U.S. official briefed on the matter said the charges are not imminent, but other knowledgeable sources said they are expected in the next few weeks or months. It’s also possible Mueller opts not to move forward because of concerns about exposing intelligence or other reasons — or that he files the indictment under seal, so the public doesn’t see it initially.
