Since the start of his Russia investigation, Robert Mueller hasn’t accomplished much.
The biggest piece of evidence uncovered was an uneventful meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer.
And now not even that meeting matters after a surprising person shut down Mueller’s claim.
In response to that meeting, Donald Trump Jr. has denied the fact that anything important came of it, and stated that it was a boring meeting.
Despite this, Democrats pushing claims of Russia collusion with the Trump campaign constantly point towards that meeting as proof.
But now it seems that everyone who attended the meeting has officially discredited it.
The Russian lawyer at the center of the claim has stated she has not been contacted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Natalia Veselnitskaya has come out stating that she’s surprised she hasn’t heard from him.
With the meeting being the biggest piece of “proof” that collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia occurred, it is very surprising.
If he is actually trying to get to the bottom of the claim, meeting with the people being accused should be the most important step.
But with as politically motivated as the investigation has been, it isn’t very surprising.
It isn’t a good move to meet with someone and risk losing the last bit of credence they have in the media.
If she was to confirm the claims of Donald Trump Jr. their investigation would be basically over, unless they pull together another piece of evidence.
As reported by Politico:
“The Russian lawyer who top Trump campaign officials were told had compromising information on Hillary Clinton ahead of a June 2016 meeting told the Associated Press on Sunday that she is surprised she has not been contacted by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to The Associated Press.
Natalia Veselnitskaya met in Trump Tower in June 2016 with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and discussed issues related to U.S. sanctions against Russia and the adoption of Russian children by Americans. Trump Jr. had been promised, through an intermediary, that Veselnitskaya had access to damaging information about Clinton sourced from the Russian government.
Told of the information Veselnitskaya had to offer and its provenance, Trump Jr. replied to the intermediary via email that “if it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
The Russian attorney said Mueller’s team, which is investigating Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and allegations that individuals tied to Trump colluded in those efforts, has not contacted her. If it does not, she said, it would be an indication that the special counsel’s office “is not working to discover the truth.”
Trump Jr., who addressed the meeting only after its existence became public, has downplayed it as a minor meeting that bore no fruit. He and the Trump administration have insisted that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.”
As each day goes by, an end to the Russia investigation comes closer and closer.
With virtually no new movement, it is looking like Mueller may be forced to end it on his own.
