Robert Mueller’s rigged witch hunt is reaching a critical point.
And this could not come at a worse time for Mueller.
That’s because he was forced to face the one truth that destroyed him for good.
Fake news journalists jumped for joy when McClatchy broke the story that foreign intelligence agencies turned over evidence to Robert Mueller that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to meet with Russians to hatch a plan to rig the 2016 election.
McClatchy claimed Eastern European Intelligence discovered Michael Cohen’s cell phone signal pinging off a tower near Prague in the late summer of 2016.
They also reported they intercepted communications from a Russian official talking about Cohen traveling to Prague.
Cohen furiously denied the story, but the media held out hope Mueller held proof in his hands that the Trump campaign engaged in treasonous Russian collusion.
But the story fell apart in hours.
McClatchy reporter Greg Gordon appeared on MSNBC and was forced to admit he had not seen any of the evidence in question.
Gordon also admitted his sources hadn’t seen the evidence either but had heard it from second hand sources.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Is there anything that you were able to physically see for yourselves?” MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Gordon.
“I wish we had. We held out for a while for that, and it came a time when we thought we had a critical mass. It is a competitive business,” Gordon said.
“Some of the sources have government sources, and some of the sources are people who have told us that they have trusted intelligence-type sources that they get information from. We don’t know the specifics, but we have used these sources on many subjects, and they have been very accurate,” Gordon added.
When asked if he has seen the intercepts, Gordon responded, “No.”
This turned out to be another Mueller bombshell that ended up being a dud.
It’s clear foreign intelligence service agents wanted to cause trouble for the Trump administration and used some fake news reporters’ hatred of the President to cause them to abandon all skepticism about the story they were pitched.
The only thing this story accomplished was cast more doubt on both the media’s conduct and the underlying allegation of Russian collusion that Robert Mueller set out to investigate.
