AT: I wrote a book about the Mueller report — before the report was published. The published report shows that I have overestimated the Mueller team.
The report is a completely one-sided accusation against Trump, like a criminal complaint or an indictment; it is very long and written for the consumption of the media rather than legal professionals.
It consists of two volumes. Volume I is devoted to the supposed subject of the investigation: the allegation of coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and any Russian in alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. Its conclusion manifests in two lines: “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” Given almost unlimited power, resources, and practically two years spent on the investigation, it finally proves that there was no conspiracy and no coordination.
Having found no conspiracy, the Mueller report then uses about 200 pages to fully develop a conspiracy theory. This conspiracy theory repeats almost every insinuation made by the Democratic Party, the Obama administration, and the media against Trump. The fake news publications are seriously cited as sources, even the articles that are known as information dumps by the DNC. The Washington Post is cited as a source 47 times, CNN is cited 24 times, and so on (counting both volumes). The Mueller Report also recursively cites the earlier Mueller indictments against Russian persons his team made earlier, although they were not heard in a court. Finally, it uses coerced statements that his team suborned from Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, George Papadopoulos, and other individuals during the witch hunt. Insinuations are reported as facts.
Volume II attempts to make the case that Trump might have obstructed justice by exercising his duties as president. Inexplicably, it is longer than Volume I. Mark Levin called it an essay and op-ed for the liberal media, and I agree with him.
The report indicates that the Mueller team accepted the talking points of the Democratic Party and Spygate perpetrators as the final truth and didn’t even attempt to verify them. It also didn’t investigate any of the multiple real connections between the Clinton campaign and the Russian government or the possibility that the Democratic Party courted Putin for electoral support.
An unexpected discovery in the report is that Rosenstein and Mueller launched an investigation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in October 2017. It seems as if they illegally took control of the Department of Justice. Rosenstein and Mueller are called registered Republicans.
(This seems to be a trick of the Democratic Party: using its supporters — possibly former Republicans — disguised as registered Republicans in place of real Republicans.)
The Mueller report never mentions Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Chris Steele, Bruce Ohr, or Nellie Ohr, except when quoting someone’s words from 2017 or later. To be precise, the published report is slightly redacted, and some of these names might have been on the list of witnesses, which was blacked out. That doesn’t affect the argument. more here
