Trump’s Claim of “Fake News” is Evidence of Obstruction

A federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.  Mueller has charged these defendants with conspiracy to defraud the United States.  Three of these people were also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud, and five defendants were charged with aggravated identity theft.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein described the activities of these defendants as information warfare against the United States.  He described the motives of the defendants as trying to spread distruct towards the candidates and the election system.
Funny thing is that “spreading distrust towards the candidates” and distrust of the
“election system” is exactly what Donald Trump has repeatedly done.
In July of 2016 Trump suggested that Hillary was “crooked.”
 Remember when Trump said the election was ‘RIGGED’.  He said the election was being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect Hillary Clinton.

Rep. Elijah CummingsELIJAH CUMMINGS, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, called special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictments of Russian nationals for alleged U.S. election interference “evidence” of a crime President Trump “tried to cover up.”

“For all of those who have been asking ‘where is the evidence of a crime?’ — this is it. This is the criminal conspiracy,” Cummings said in a statement. “This is what President Trump and his allies have repeatedly called a ‘hoax’ and ‘fake news.’ This is what they tried to cover up.”

“This is what we might never have known if President Trump had been successful in shutting down this investigation,” he added.  Cummings said that the charges  “show precisely how the Russians worked to help the Trump campaign, in startling and extensive detail.”

Cummings also highlighted how the Russian groups and nationals had allegedly taken steps to try and suppress the minority vote during the 2016 election.

“Defendants’ operations included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump (“Trump campaign”) and disparaging Hillary Clinton,” the indictment reads. “Defendants made various expenditures to carry out those activities, including buying political advertisements on social media in the names of U.S. persons and entities.”

Trump has repeatedly slammed Mueller’s probe as a “witch hunt.”  He even said 

Thus even if Trump had not colluded with the Russians his repeated references to “CROOKED HILLARY” AND “FAKE NEWS” is evidence of obstruction of justice.

  1. That’s the beauty of evangelism – the followers follow, and accordingly vote, without questioning or becoming informed. They are entirely unaware of propaganda, for what they “believe” itself IS propaganda. And no, “god” isn’t dead, but the stories are.
    Blind sheep.

  4. Well – this is interesting. Certainly good news.
    It is so heartbreaking we have such a CORRUPT administration – but I think that is how Trump has always lived his life.
    Now we see news he was carrying on affairs with two women at the same time just months after the birth of his last son. What a truly creepy man. I will bet you there are more out there he has had affairs with since his last marriage. it will eventually come out. Can not wait until we are rid on this smelly mess.

  5. This is so “Jaws” for the White House. The shark just gobbled up some forage fish, out away from the boat, appetizers. These indictments are the outer ring of the crime wave. Mueller is a genius. He could have started at the top. But, that would allow the lower level targets time to flee or pay for alibis. By starting from the outer ring, those in the next levels may flee, but most may also look for a plea deal, maybe even witness protection. Some will just surrender and spill their guts, can’t take the guilt.

    Fox and the GOP faithful and the white house act like it is done, no crimes higher up. That’s the Fake News. This thing just started to get real.
