JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: SOME BIG QUESTIONS AROUND THE MUELLER REPORT AND MUELLER’S PATHETIC TESTIMONY IN CONGRESS – DID THE REPORT SERVE ANY PURPOSE? DO AMERICANS EVER LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT HOW THEIR GOVERNMENT OPERATES? HERE’S JUST ONE MORE EXAMPLE, A SMALLER ONE, OF THE WARREN COMMISSION OR THE INVESTIGATION OF THE DOWNING OF TWA FLIGHT 800 OR INDEED THE INVESTIGATION OF 9/11   Leave a comment

EXPANSION OF A COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA INSIDER

 

“Mueller Testimony an Absolute Trainwreck – Check Out These Liveblog Headlines to Get a Taste”

 

It’s hard to understand why the Democrats pushed ahead with this testimony.

Surely, just in conversations with Mueller, leaders should have known he wouldn’t make a great impression, and the Russia Insider impression of his genuine feebleness is confirmed by various other news sources.

I do wish, though, people would get over the “well, it’s all proven there’s nothing on Russia” syndrome.

No, I don’t say that because I believe Russia officially was in any way involved. I’ve always regarded that notion as having no substance, as feeding off Washington’s dank atmosphere of Russophobia, and I don’t believe Russia had any real incentive for being involved, that last consideration being especially important for a strategic-thinking pragmatist like Putin.

But Russia is a big country with all kinds of individuals doing things which have nothing to with the government, just as is the case for the United States.

There are areas of connection with Russian figures and Trump that Mueller did not investigate. If any connections, no matter how obscure, were his central mandate, why not?

Second, there are definitely, both by Mueller’s words and by the those of the report, areas of concern over obstruction of justice by Trump.

That is important, it represents a serious crime, surely an impeachable offence, but it tends to get washed away with all the noise about Russia.

All in all, Mueller’s report appears a mighty thin piece of work.

There was no examination at all of the technical evidence showing the Wikileaks DNC material having been a leak, not a hack, by Russia or anyone else. Numerous true experts have said that is the case. Wouldn’t it have been nice to have this one shibboleth laid to rest?

Mueller conducted no examination of Democrats’ computers, despite numerous reasons for doing so.

He made no effort to get testimony from Julian Assange or other central figures to the matter of Russia and leaks. No effort to look into the murder of Seth Rich and into the very doubtful circumstances of the local DC Police investigation of it.

That investigation remains more riddles than facts, and we should always remember that Congress holds the ultimate authority for governing DC under the United States Constitution. DC has no state government. In other words, all local events there are influenced, and distorted, by national politics.

Perhaps most concerning, in light of the fact that it is something which occurred only as a result of his own efforts, Mueller did not pursue, and follow-up on, obstruction of justice by the President, a rather serious crime.

That failure quickly gets us into the double-bind that if there were no issues involved in relations with (at least some) Russians or perhaps other dark matters, why would Trump be concerned enough to risk obstructing justice? “Hands entirely off” would have been the wisest policy. Of course, I realize that this is not a wise man we are discussing.

There is also some reason to believe that Theresa May’s ugly Skripal Affair may have been connected in some way, now that we have learned from Putin himself, in an interview with Oliver Stone, that Skripal had wanted to return to Russia.

There’s reason to believe that Skripal may been involved with ex-M16 agent Christopher Steele who ran a small, for-hire, high-end “detective” agency that produced “the dossier” on behalf of American customers, but that too is not explored by Mueller.

There’re some terribly interesting possibilities, but the Mueller Report touches none of them. It really represented a mighty effort, with plenty of noise and publicity, for the birth of a mouse.
