Mueller’s indictments leave salivating liberals wanting more

When word leaked from Robert Mueller’s team that indictments were coming, liberals and their pals in the media could barely contain their excitement.

As the initial stories broke, outlets ran nearly identical headlines, “Trump aides indicted for ‘Conspiracy Against the United States.'”

But when readers began delving into the details, their giddy excitement became muted.

Among the twelve charges levied against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates there was nothing about Russia.

Not. One. Thing.

The key narrative spread by Democrats and kept alive by the fake news media that Trump colluded with Russia and the indictments of his campaign officials would prove it was obliterated.

As far as Trump and Russia are concerned, Mueller’s investigation has so far turned out to be a big fat nothing burger with extra nothing.

The indictment of Manafort and his longtime associate Gates instead focused on their activities lobbying on behalf of the Ukrainian government without properly disclosing it.

Their activities were lucrative for the pair and they laundered money so they could avoid paying taxes.

Politico lamented:

Despite Mueller’s sprawling probe into ties between the Trump campaign and potential interference by foreign governments, the charges made no direct mention of Manafort’s work while serving as Trump’s campaign chairman or Gates’ time with the campaign and the presidential inauguration.

In another article, Politico notes that Mueller’s investigation into Manafort’s lobbying activities for Ukraine has ensnared Tony Podesta, leading to his resignation from his lobbying firm that he cofounded with his brother John, Hillary’s campaign chairman.

The investigation into Podesta and his firm grew out of investigators’ examination of Manafort’s finances. Manafort organized a PR campaign on behalf of a nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Podesta Group was one of several firms that were paid to do work on the PR campaign to promote Ukraine in the U.S.

Renewed Right previously reported on Podesta’s link to Manafort when it was recently uncovered by Tucker Carlson.

Trump responded to the news on Twitter.
