On Tuesday, it was reported that Robert Mueller had begun asking Trump-Russia witnesses about the money trail between Donald Trump and Russia prior to the 2016 election. This was huge news at the time, because Mueller typically doesn’t ask witnesses these kinds of questions unless he has some form of evidence already. Well, as huge as that news was, it appears even bigger news is now being reported.
According to an on-air MSNBC news report, Mueller is now asking witnesses what Donald Trump knew about the Democratic National Committee emails that were hacked, stolen and released during the 2016 election:
Mueller’s investigators have asked witnesses whether Trump was aware of plans for WikiLeaks to publish the emails. They have also asked about the relationship between GOP operative Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and why Trump took policy positions favorable to Russia.
The line of questioning suggests the special counsel, who is tasked with examining whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, is looking into possible coordination between WikiLeaks and Trump associates in disseminating the emails, which U.S. intelligence officials say were stolen by Russia.
In one line of questioning, investigators have focused on Trump’s public comments in July 2016 asking Russia to find emails that were deleted by his then-opponent Hillary Clinton from a private server she maintained while secretary of state. The comments came at a news conference on July 27, 2016, just days after WikiLeaks began publishing the Democratic National Committee emails. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said.
Why is this so huge? Well, once again, why would Mueller even bother asking witnesses these questions unless he has the evidence in hand already? And why would he allow his actions to leak to the media?
Nevertheless, Trump still insists that there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia during the election.
Except we know better. And now, because of the Mueller’s recent line of questioning, things are not looking good for Donald Trump.
Now, if Robert Mueller can prove that Donald Trump was knowledgeable and in favor of releasing doctored and out of context emails in order to mislead and direct voters away from the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton, Trump is staring conspiracy against the United States right in the face.
