Robert Mueller is leaving no stone unturned in his crusade to destroy the President.
The special counsel has pulled every trick in the book to generate the grounds for impeaching Donald Trump.
But one blockbuster Congressional hearing revealed Mueller has a secret ally in his war on Trump.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about an alleged data-mining scandal surrounding a Trump campaign vendor during the 2016 election.
But there is no real scandal.
The only reason the media kicked up a storm surrounding their data operation was because Trump won the election.
That’s the real “scandal.” Obama’s campaign ran the same data operation in 2012 and even did so with the help of Facebook.
But during his testimony, Zuckerberg made news when he revealed Facebook was working with the special counsel.
“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday confirmed that Facebook is working with the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign.
The revelation came during Zuckerberg’s appearance in front of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee joint hearing on Facebook.
Asked by Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) whether the special counsel team had subpoenaed Facebook, he responded, “I actually am not aware of — of a subpoena. I believe that there may be, but I know we’re working with them…
…Zuckerberg also said Facebook is also investigating whether there is a link between those targeted by Cambridge Analytica and those who were potentially exposed to Russian political ads.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) asked whether those whose data was collected by Cambridge Analytica were the same ones who were potentially exposed during the election to Facebook pages associated with the Internet Research Agency, a Russian company running influence operations.”
“Senator, we’re investigating that now. We believe that it is entirely possible that there will be a connection there,” he said.
Mueller is chasing down this lead because it could be his last chance to prove collusion.
The special counsel wants to show that the paltry Russian ad-buy lines up with the Trump team’s data so they can frame the campaign for coordinating with Russia.
No one who works at any serious level in politics thinks the Russian ads had any impact on the election.
The ad-buy was miniscule – not even enough to swing a single Congressional seat – and most of the money was spent after the election.
But facts don’t matter to Mueller.
His only goal is to bring down Donald Trump.
