The Mueller report clearly identified collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia / 272 Contacts

TRUMP’S RUSSIA COVER-UP BY THE NUMBERS – 272 CONTACTS WITH RUSSIA-LINKED OPERATIVES

Instead, the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them.

Last Updated June 3, 2019

On April 18, 2019, a redacted copy of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election” (Mueller Report) was released to the public. The Mueller report builds on the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that there were two campaigns to elect Donald Trump— one run by Trump and one run by the Russian government. The Mueller report clearly identified collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite repeated denials from Trump and many of his senior advisers and close associates that there were any connections between the two campaigns.

A total of 272 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives have been identified, including at least 38 meetings. And we know that at least 33 high-ranking campaign officials and Trump advisers were aware of contacts with Russia-linked operatives during the campaign and transition, including Trump himself. None of these contacts were ever reported to the proper authorities. Instead, the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them.

Beyond the many lies the Trump team told to the American people, Mueller himself repeatedly remarked on how far the Trump team was willing to go to hide their Russian contacts, stating, “the investigation established that several individuals affiliated with the Trump Campaign lied to the Office, and to Congress, about their interactions with Russian-affiliated individuals and related matters. Those lies materially impaired the investigation of Russian election interference.”

*******

When is enough, enough? Impeach his ass already and if the republican senators want to still
stand with that treasonous bastard let 'em.

1. no

It didn't even look at collusion since collusion is not a crime. The closet thing to collusion is conspiracy or coordination. The Mueller report clearly stated it could not establish that. This website you link to is putting out false information, probably on purpose, to make us look like fools. We need facts not wishful thinking.

7. Read

Have you read the Mueller report? I’ve read all of part one and most of part 2. The redacted areas in part one are not going to change the summary which is the bottom line conclusions. Which as I stated says “we did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s election interference activities”. Starts at bottom of page 1 and ends top of page two, section 1.

So unless Mueller’s team lied in their summary the redacted parts in section one is not going to change that statement.

3. Which one of the 272 listed contacts between Trump and Russia is giving false information?

And what do the 272 contacts all have in common? Trump and company tried to hide or
lied about every single one of them.

8. Lied

It lies in the very first paragraph of their webpage when it says the Mueller report “clearly identified collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia”. The mueller report didn’t even look at collusion because it’s not a legal term, the closet thing is conspiring or coordinating and the Mueller report clearly says it did not establish that.

Have you read the Mueller report?

4. For some inexplicable reason, Mueller discussed all these cases, then turned around and

said repeatedly -- "We identified no evidence . . . . . . " or something similar.

Here are Mueller's key findings that let Kush and Trump Jr. off for the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Russian officials:

"The Office considered whether to charge Trump Campaign officials with crimes in connection with the June 9 meeting described in Volume I, Section IV.A.5, supra. The Office concluded that, in light of the government's substantial burden of proof on issues of intent ("knowing" and "willful", and the difficulty of establishing the value of the offered information, criminal charges would not meet the Justice Manual standard that "the admissible evidence will probably be sufficient to obtain and sustain a conviction." Justice Manual§ 9-27.220. . . . . .

"The Office considered whether this evidence would establish a conspiracy to violate the foreign contributions ban, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371 ; the solicitation of an illegal foreignsource contribution; or the acceptance or receipt of "an express or implied promise to make a [foreign-source] contribution," both in violation of 52 U.S.C. § 3012l(a)(l)(A), (a)(2). There are reasonable arguments that the offered information would constitute a "thing of value" within the meaning of these provisions, but the Office determined that the government would not be likely to obtain and sustain a conviction for two other reasons: first, the Office did not obtain admissible evidence likely to meet the government's burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these individuals acted "willfully," i.e., with general knowledge of the illegality of their conduct; and, second, the government would likely encounter difficulty in proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the value of the promised information exceeded the threshold for a criminal violation, see 52 U.S.C. § 30109(d)(l)(A)(i). . . . . . "


21 times, Mueller stated "we did not identify evidence." Examples:

The investigation did not identify evidence that any U.S. persons conspired or coordinated with the IRA (Internet Research Agency, a Russian company engaged in the social media campaign].

. . . . . . the investigation did not identify evidence that Cohen brought Klokov' s initial offer of assistance to the Campaign's attention or that anyone associated with the Trump Organization or the Campaign dealt with Klokov at a later date.

9. Think

I think you and I are the only people on DU that actually read the Mueller report. Though we came to different conclusions.

11. No Trump and Russia clearly collude in the last election. The Mueller report is a white wash

Mueller is a right-winger. I was never wrong about him.
