Robert Mueller is still roving around and expanding his witch hunt because no one has the guts to put a stop to him.
According to a new report out by CNN, Mueller’s team is questioning Viktor Vekselberg, Russian oligarch and chairman of asset manager Renova Group about payments he made to Michael Cohen on a business deal after the 2016 election.
What the hell does this have to do with Trump colluding with the Russians to hack the DNC’s servers?

CNN notes that prosecutors have not accused Michael Cohen of wrongdoing over the payments.
The questions asked of Vekselberg suggest that Mueller investigators have been examining some of Cohen’s business relationships as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Vekselberg is one of two Russian oligarchs the FBI stopped earlier this year after their private jets landed in New York-area airports as part of Mueller’s investigation.

CNN reports that the Russian oligarch’s American cousin was also questioned over donations made to Trump’s inaugural fund. Surprisingly CNN points out it is perfectly legal for the Russian’s American cousin to donate to Trump’s campaign being that he’s a US citizen.
We are in the twilight zone. Stop this insanity.
FBI agents asked Vekselberg about payments his company’s American affiliate, Columbus Nova, made to Cohen, according to one source. The Russian was questioned as well about $300,000 in political donations by Andrew Intrater, Vekselberg’s American cousin who is the head of Columbus Nova, sources said.Intrater was also questioned by Mueller’s investigators, two sources told CNN. Last month, Vekselberg was placed on the US government’s list of sanctioned individuals, prohibiting him from traveling to the US.The payments occurred at the same time Cohen was trying to build a consulting and legal business after the election and around the time he left the Trump Organization. At that time, he was still Trump’s personal lawyer. Even last month, as Trump responded to questions about the payment to Daniels, the President deferred to Cohen and said, “Michael is my attorney.”
Time is running out for Robert Mueller since he actually hit a road block with a judge who believes in the rule of law.
We still haven’t seen Rosenstein’s unredacted memo detailing Mueller’s scope.
Judge Ellis, however, has ordered the DOJ to hand over the memo within a two week time frame.
Mueller isn’t investigating ‘Russian collusion,’ he’s doing what he’s done for decades–charge innocent men for crimes they didn’t commit.
