UNITED STATES—A new report by journalist, John Sperry on Monday, December 3 indicated that Robert Mueller withheld evidence that could exonerate President Donald Trump from allegations of Russian collusion during the 2016 presidential election. The investigation has been ongoing since May 17, 2017.
Page two of court documents in a letter from Cohen to the Senate Intelligence Committee on August 2017 stated that President Trump, “was never in contact with anyone about [the] (Moscow Project) proposal other than me [Cohen].”
Page 7 of the 10 page court document notes that Mueller mentioned in the plea agreement that Cohen tried to email Russian President Vladimir Putin’s office on January 14, 2016 and again on January 16, 2016. Mueller, who personally signed the document, omitted that Cohen did not have any direct points of contact at the Kremlin. Cohen was sending emails to a general press mailbox.
BNL News tweeted, “Mueller’s plea deal with Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen offers further evidence that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russians during the 2016 election, according to congressional investigators and former prosecutors.”
Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, said the criminal-information statement of offense against Michael Cohen reflects political bias. He indicated the special counsel appears more interested in trying to draw connections to Russia than highlighting exculpatory evidence.
“Mueller seems desperate to confuse Americans by conflating the cancelled and legitimate Russian business venture with the Russia collusion theory he was actually hired to investigate,” said Fitton.
“This is a transparent attempt to try to embarrass the President,” he added. “The plea deal is weak tea and I suspect given Mueller’s track record, that there’s even less here than meets the eye.”
