The Mueller witch hunt is reaching new heights. With their suspicious indictment yesterday, the corrupt Mueller team has now indicted 37 individuals and 3 companies, with more than 4 out of 5 of the indicted individuals related to Russians who may not even be real and probably had nothing to do with our 2016 election.
Dirty and Corrupt Cop Robert Mueller and his team of conflicted liberal attorneys and investigators are seeing their unconstitutional witch hunt fall apart. It seems like on a daily basis more and more information becomes available of the entire gang’s unlawful acts. In spite of this, they charge forward working with their mainstream media (MSM) to report their unlawful and phony leaks planned to keep their criminal conspiracy alive. Yesterday’s actions were no different.
Corrupt and dirty cop Mueller started the ‘witch hunt’ more than one year ago, on May 17, 2017, and began looking into individuals with any relationship with President Trump. Mueller’s team were not interested in crimes that President Trump committed. There are none. Instead, Mueller went after anyone with any relationship to the President and any other ‘fake indictments’ with Russians they could create. Mueller’s entire team has serious conflicts of interest and his investigation is unconstitutional, but this has not deterred Mueller.
Dirty Cop Mueller and his team went ahead and indicted some individuals related to the President and then they apparently made up other individuals out of thin air and indicted them too. Here’s an updated list of the indictments and their current status.
Yesterday’s Indictment of One Lonely Russian Woman Accountant
Yesterday DAG Rod Rosenstein announced that the Mueller team was indicting a female accountant in Russia for creating more than 400 posts on Facebook that the DOJ says were inflammatory. Nobody saw the posts but that’s beside the point. Oh my, a Russian accountant posted on Facebook (probably in Russian)!
The Deep State thinks Americans are idiots. And the Deep State knows the liberal media will carry their water for them, no matter how ridiculous the task.
This indictment is very suspect considering that the Mueller case against Concord Management (noted below) is falling apart as noted by the LastRefuge2.
It started on Wednesday as the current criminal DOJ Rosenstein wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal praising the integrity of the corrupt and criminal Mueller witch hunt.

But then on Thursday the Concord Management case began to unravel as the judge questioned what the crime was and gave Mueller’s team a week to define. The government failed to explain why actions taken by Concord Management were even illegal. In response, the always corrupt Rosenstein announces another Russian indictment. But the problem is that this indictment is weaker than the Concord Management indictments.
What also is suspicious is the indictment itself. It looks like it was filed on September 28th and Rosenstein pulled it out of his hat to keep the news cycle on the always corrupt Mueller witch hunt.
The other component that speaks to the Rosenstein motive around the timing is the actual date of the indictment filing (initially under seal), September 28th.

The silly indictment is based on memes and tweets on social media –
Not only does the “conspiracy to defraud” charge look silly on its face (and most lawyers sense this is going no-where); the evidentiary content is even more silly. A ‘conspiracy to defraud’ based on memes and tweets on social media? C’mon 🙄 https://t.co/pcryzfSbiU pic.twitter.com/Ld8a9jPSCq

What a complete joke!
7 Russian Intelligence Officers (3 previously charged in July)
In early October the DOJ on behalf of the Mueller team announced that they have charged seven Russian GRU officers with crimes. The officers will likely never be tried in the United States and three of the men were already charged back in July in connection to the Mueller witch hunt.
Here is the statement from the DOJ –
U.S. Charges Russian GRU Officers with International Hacking and Related Influence and Disinformation OperationsConspirators Included a Russian Intelligence “Close Access” Hacking Team that Traveled Abroad to Compromise Computer Networks Used by Anti-Doping and Sporting Officials and Organizations Investigating Russia’s Use of Chemical Weapons.
A grand jury in the Western District of Pennsylvania has indicted seven defendants, all officers in the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), a military intelligence agency of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, for computer hacking, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering.
According to the indictment, beginning in or around December 2014 and continuing until at least May 2018, the conspiracy conducted persistent and sophisticated computer intrusions affecting U.S. persons, corporate entities, international organizations, and their respective employees located around the world, based on their strategic interest to the Russian government.
Among the goals of the conspiracy was to publicize stolen information as part of an influence and disinformation campaign designed to undermine, retaliate against, and otherwise delegitimize the efforts of international anti-doping organizations and officials who had publicly exposed a Russian state-sponsored athlete doping program and to damage the reputations of athletes around the world by falsely claiming that such athletes were using banned or performance-enhancing drugs.
The charges were announced at a press conference by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott W. Brady, FBI Deputy Assistant Director for Cyber Division, Eric Welling, and Director General Mark Flynn for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Who knows if any of this is true and it certainly has nothing to do with the 2016 Presidential election.
12 Russian Intelligence Officers
FOX News reported in July 2018 –
The Justice Department on July 13 announced that 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election.
All 12 are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency.
The indictments, which stem from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, were announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
These 12 individuals will never be prosecuted. We really have no information that they did anything to disrupt the 2016 election. The FBI and DOJ cannot be trusted in anything related to the Mueller investigation so it is not a stretch to believe these indictments are made up like the other Russians indicted. The only thing is with this indictment the individuals indicted may be real people, but who really knows if they had anything to do with our 2016 election.
The 13 Russians ‘Made Up’ by the Mueller Team
In an effort to tie their corrupt investigation to Russia, the Mueller team indicted 13 Russians after presenting their cases to a grand jury in February of this year. Immediately, these indictments were suspect as everyone on to the corrupt Mueller team knew that these ‘Russians’ would never be brought to justice, even if they were real, because they would never come to the US to stand trial and risk being put in jail.
Unfortunately for Mueller however, this too turned into a royal mess. Lawyers defending one of three Russian companies indicted with the 13 Russians, Concord Management, showed up for court. Mueller’s team was caught off guard and never expected this. They immediately asked the judge for more time but the judge denied their pleas noting that they were the ones who indicted the Russian company in the first place.
When the case proceeded, the Concord attorney’s noted that another of the three companies indicted by Mueller was not in existence at the time of Mueller’s indictment. They called this a case of Mueller indicting the proverbial ‘ham sandwich’.
At a following court appearance, the attorneys representing Concord stated that the corrupt Mueller team’s allegations of 13 Russian individuals impacting the 2016 election were “made up” nonsense. The individuals were not even real.
Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team had ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information in the case. In response Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls who sought to influence the US election and the majority of the data was in RUSSIAN.
Mueller’s lawyers then admitted that they don’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts. However, somehow Mueller’s lawyers believe Americans were influenced by these Russian language posts?
It was reported that Mueller’s team didn’t want to hand over the data that had been accumulated related to the Russians because the Russians would then use the information to spy on Americans (ignoring that they supposedly already had).
The case of the Russians quickly turned into a big joke. The Mueller team should be ashamed for bringing it to the court and indicted for making the whole thing up.
In total now, 30 of the 37 individuals or more than 80% of those indicted by the Mueller team are Russians who may not be real people and who will never be brought to justice if they even are legit.
General Mike Flynn
The biggest indictment to date by the dirty cops and attorneys on the Mueller team was the indictment of General Flynn for lying to the FBI. One of the two individuals that Flynn apparently lied to was Peter Strzok in a discussion at the White House shortly after the inauguration. Strzok was the lead investigator who took Hillary Clinton’s testimony in her email scandal and was apparently fine when Hillary destroyed her server, 30,000 emails, numerous phones with hammers and lied to him and all of America. However, shortly after Flynn spoke with Strzok, former Attorney General Sally Yates from the Obama Administration went to the White House and told the new President the General had lied.
Flynn was fired by the President and then when Mueller started his witch hunt he charged Flynn for lying to the FBI. Flynn eventually pleaded guilty but the judge overseeing his plea was recused. We later found out that the recused Judge, Rudolph Contreras was also a FISA Court judge and a friend of Strzok’s.
To date Flynn has not been sentenced after the new judge demanded Mueller provide the General with all information related to his case. Also, new evidence unfolded of Sally Yates and/or former FBI Head Andrew McCabe doctoring and destroying evidence that led to Flynn’s conviction. The Senate has asked the FBI and DOJ for this support but it has not been provided to date because some expect it is not there (it was destroyed). They have also asked for the other FBI Agent who interviewed Flynn with Strzok but to date the FBI will not allow him to be interviewed by the Senate.
The entire Flynn case is now not only falling apart but it appears Strzok, Yates, McCabe, Mueller and possibly others may be involved in crimes in doctoring and destroying evidence and then charging Flynn for a crime. Strzok, Yates and McCabe have also all been fired.
General Flynn was innocent and the contrived nature of his indictment and plea support this. Mueller’s team of dirty cops framed him using corrupted information and the FBI probably spied on him illegally during the campaign. He apparently was forced into a plea by Mueller’s dirty cops who most likely leveraged attacking his son for a guilty plea. This should not happen in America. Sure Trump can and will pardon him if convicted, but Flynn should not be charged for a crime he did not commit.
Mueller’s team has been postponing the sentencing on Flynn and the best guess is that the band of dirty cops has been trying to delay the embarrassment of Flynn’s plea being overturned until after the 2018 elections.
Paul Manafort was President Trump’s campaign manager for a short time during the 2016 election. The Mueller team initially charged him with multiple counts of not filling in forms required by the law starting in 2005. In an effort to pay his legal fees, Manafort borrowed money using personal collateral or real estate. Mueller and his team then charged Manafort with bank fraud claiming these loans overstated the value of his properties. Mueller’s team then charged Manafort with trying to tamper with witnesses.
Manafort’s attorneys argued that the entire case was unconstitutional based on the fact that no crime was committed by Trump which is required to set up a Special Counsel and based on the scope of the case being unlimited and therefore also against the law related to Special Counsels. However, the judge on one of Manafort’s cases was Obama appointed Judge Amy Jackson. With her record it was doubtful that Manafort would receive a fair trial as she disagreed with these arguments from Manafort’s legal team.
Mueller petitioned the court to have Manafort thrown in jail and corrupt Judge Jackson complied. Later, the 70 something year old was placed in solitary confinement. The abuse that Mueller and his Obama cronies have perpetrated on Manafort will go down in history as some of the most inappropriate actions of an American citizen in history.
Manafort was eventually charged with multiple crimes related to not filing the appropriate forms for the government dating back to 2005 and for hiding income in his prior year tax returns. He eventually took a plea deal on his second case and agreed to some bogus Mueller charges. Recently, Manafort was seen dragged into court in a wheelchair.
Richard Gates pleaded not guilty to all charges against him by Mueller, many related to years before the election. Gates was named alongside Manafort in the charges brought by the special counsel. He was accused of 11 counts related to filing false income tax returns and three counts of failure to report foreign bank and financial accounts.
Gates pleaded guilty on February 23 to federal conspiracy and false-statements charges.
In wake of the guilty plea, Mueller moved to drop the 22 bank and tax fraud charges against him. The decision to drop the more expansive charges against Gates could suggest that the former Trump campaign official is cooperating and providing information to Mueller’s team.
Gates eventually worked with the Mueller team to indict his former partner Manafort whom he admitted to stealing from during their time together.
Papadopoulos has a questionable background. He was a young man who traveled to the UK and apparently was set up by spies inserted into the Trump campaign by the FBI in early 2016.
A former foreign policy adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign, George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in 2017 to making false statements to the FBI regarding “the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials,” according to court documents.
Papadopoulos, like the others indicted, was under gag orders until he was sentenced to 14 days in jail. He now is vocal in noting that he was spied on in the UK and is hinting that this will soon be uncovered.
Alex van der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo
These are two individuals no one has ever heard of nor will ever remember. Alex van der Zwan was charged with lying to the FBI and Richard Pinedo was charged for selling bank accounts to Russians, even though Pinedo said he didn’t know he was selling accounts to Russians. Both cases sound suspect and more related to abuse of power by the Mueller team than actual crimes being committed.
The Mueller team raided the President’s attorney’s office, home and storage unit and took all the documents they could – to hell with attorney – client privilege. This information then led to Michael Cohen, the President’s former personal attorney to plead guilty to some more bogus charges created by the Mueller team. He is reportedly not working with Mueller.
In spite of the pitiful cases Mueller’s gang has put together to date, they continue to spin the media with pro witch hunt leaks almost daily. Yesterday’s announcement of the charges against the Russian accountant is another suspect action. The Mueller team continues to hide the numerous gang members that have been removed from the team for various legal reasons to the point that Congress has now asked for a list of former and current witch hunt participants.
As of today 30 of the 37 individuals indicted are Russians who will never be held accountable if they are real people, and if they are, they will never come to the US to face our courts. What a joke!
