Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against Donald Trump is reaching the desperation phase.
The special counsel is casting about to claim a scalp to push Congress to impeach the President.
And now Mueller has obtained one tax return that is bad news for Donald Trump.
Anti-Trump journalists have focused on the National Rifle Association’s ties to Russian politician Aleksander Torshin.
Torshin established a relationship with NRA President David Keene in 2011 and hosted Keene on visits to Moscow in 2013 and 2015.
The National Rifle Association – which many conservatives believe is a moderate gun group that too often compromises with gun-grabbers in order to protect establishment Republicans – spent $30 million in 2016 to boost Donald Trump’s candidacy.
The NRA’s general counsel, John Frazer, revealed in a letter to Democrat Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon that donations from Russians totaled $2,500 in 2016.
Liberals believe the NRA is a boogeyman of American politics that thwarts their dreams of confiscating every firearm in America.
Although the NRA has supported gun control in the past, this has not stopped the left from circulating the rumor that the Russians used the NRA to pass money to Trump to circumvent the laws banning foreign money from being used in elections.
But this fake news is being spread by Fusion GPS – the same firm that was paid by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to contract ex-British spy Christopher Steele to put together the controversial Russia dossier.
The giveaway that the story was planted by Fusion GPS was by the reporters who wrote it.
Greg Gordon and Peter Stone authored a disputed story in April that Robert Mueller’s team obtained evidence that Trump attorney Michael Cohen traveled to Prague in August or September of 2016 to collude with Russian intelligence.
The source of these claims was the Steele dossier.
Cohen has strongly denied these allegations tweeting:
“My family & I are owed an apology. After 2 years, 15 hours of testimony before House & Senate under oath & producing more than 1000 documents, dossier misreports 15 allegations about me. My entire statement must be quoted- I had nothing to do with Russian collusion or meddling!”
Cohen even provided social media postings that showed he was in Los Angeles at the time Steele’s “sources” claim he was in Europe conspiring to rig the election.
Gordon and Stone are the reporters who broke the story that Mueller has probably obtained the NRA’s tax returns.
This rumor about the NRA colluding with the Russians is just another Fusion GPS special.
And it shows how the media’s fake news allegations are driving the Mueller investigation.
This line of inquiry is based solely on the claims made by an opposition research firm that colluded with foreign spies to spread fake news about Donald Trump.
If you still needed proof that the Mueller investigation was an illegitimate sham, look no further than Mueller investigating the NRA because some on the left want to take down a perceived political enemy.
