Mueller Investigating ‘Billionaires with Ties to Russia’ Who Attended Trump Inauguration Party

Robert Mueller

Robert Mueller and his propaganda arm, the mainstream media were due for a ‘Trump-Russia’ headline this week to distract from the Congressional hearing over the IG report and Spygate.

So here we are.

Robert Mueller is investigating ‘billionaires with ties to Russia’ who attended Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities.

What does this have to do with the DNC server that was supposedly hacked by the Russians over two years ago?

ABC News reported:

Several billionaires with deep ties to Russia attended exclusive, invitation-only receptions during Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities, guest lists obtained by ABC News show.

These powerful businessmen, who amassed their fortunes following the collapse of the Soviet Union — including one who has since been sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department — were ushered into events typically reserved for top donors and close political allies and were given unprecedented access to Trump’s inner circle.

Their presence has attracted the interest of federal investigators probing Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, three sources with knowledge of the matter said.

Matthew Olsen, a former senior national security official who now serves as an ABC News consultant, said their presence at inaugural events is “very concerning.”

“This reflects a Russian strategy of gaining access to our political leaders at a time when they are just forming a government,” Olsen said. “They don’t need to be spies in the James Bond sense. They are powerful people with significant wealth who are in a position to exert influence on U.S. policy makers. And they’re in a position to report back to Russian intelligence services on what they’re able to learn.”

The presence of people with Kremlin ties in Washington for Trump’s inaugural celebration was first reported by The Washington Post. But the guest lists obtained by ABC News offer a new glimpse at the level of access granted to several well-connected oligarchs.

It is common for high profile business moguls to attend presidential inauguration festivities.

There is nothing unusual or illegal about billionaires attending and donating to Donald Trump’s inauguration parties.

In fact, campaign donation laws do not apply to inauguration donations; they are totally separate.

Mueller obviously has nothing; he’s roving around to justify his salary and witch hunt.

Shame on Congressional oversight [and AG Sessions] for allowing this multi-million dollar witch hunt to continue.
