Robert Mueller’s witch hunt is moving into the final phase.
The special counsel is about to sentence a key figure to prison.
But no one expected the move to blow up in Mueller’s face.
Robert Mueller’s office filed a notice with a federal court that it intends to move ahead with sentencing former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos to prison.
This filing means Papadopoulos’ cooperation with the special counsel has ended.
The Daily Caller reports:
Mueller filed notice in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday asking for the preparation of a pre-sentence investigation report, a standard document that judges use to determine criminal sentences.
The report will be provided by June 22, Mueller said.
The filing suggests that Mueller is finished using Papadopoulos as a cooperating witness. Papadopoulos, 30, agreed to cooperate with the investigation as part of an Oct. 5, 2017 plea deal.
In the plea, Papadopoulos acknowledged that he lied to FBI agents during a Jan. 27, 2017 interview about his contacts with Joseph Mifsud, a professor who may have links to the Russian government.
Papadopoulos lied when he told agents that he was in contact with Mifsud and two Russian nationals prior to joining the campaign in March 2016. The Trump aide actually met Mifsud on March 14, 2016, just a week before President Trump identified Papadopoulos as a member of his national security advisory team.”
But this move to sentence Papadopoulos does not mean what many in the media thinks it means.
When Papadopoulos pleaded guilty, he did not admit to scheming to collude with the Russians during the campaign.
In fact, reports indicate Papadopoulos has denied any collusion.
Papadopoulos was one of the Trump aides approached by alleged FBI spy Stefan Halper.
Had Papadopoulos actually colluded with the Russians – or possessed any evidence that other Trump officials were in league with Moscow – it would have been included in his allocution, or the spy’s reports to his FBI handlers would have leaked.
Neither avenue has produced any evidence of collusion.
That’s because there never was any.
The collusion narrative was a hoax pretext by the Obama administration to spy on the Trump campaign.
It has been confirmed that the President was correct when he said Obama “wiretapped” him.
The FBI deployed national security letters, FISA warrants and spies to snoop around and infiltrate the Trump campaign.
Trump has labeled this affair “spygate” and declared it could be the worst scandal in America history.
And every new story reveals another detail that proves that the President is correct once again.
