We know this is difficult to believe, so bear with us. Special Counsel Robert Meuller has issued an indictment of a dozen Russian officials on the charge of election hacking. But curiously the details of the indictment ignore critical findings from the House intelligence report. Perhaps it’s because that report contained questions about collusion at the hands of the agency that’s signing Mueller’s paychecks. While the mainstream media is fixated on Trump’s foreign policy missteps, it’s conveniently ignoring the pink elephant in the room. Typical.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said special counsel Robert Mueller’s recent indictment of 12 Russian officials on charges of hacking Democrats’ computers during the 2016 campaign looks “ridiculous” because it left out Republicans who were also targeted.
During an interview Sunday on Fox News, Nunes accused the media of largely ignoring the findings of his committee’s months-old report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, which he asserted was more comprehensive than Mueller’s indictment. However, he also claimed the redactions in his panel’s report prevented the presentation of the full picture and urged President Trump to declassify it.
“This entire report that you have in front of you, all you had to do was get to page 4, and you only had to read chapter 2 and you would have had nearly everything that’s in the indictment,” Nunes said, referring to a copy of the report held by host Maria Bartiromo. “There’s more in this report than what’s in the indictment. And this is what’s very frustrating.”
A grand jury returned Mueller’s indictment Friday, after which it was announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
