The mainstream press is now asking questions about the validity of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into President Donald J. Trump for “Russian collusion” in the 2016 election.
“What if the president is right that the “Russian collusion” investigation really is a hoax waged by a witches brew of political foes to derail his administration?” the Boston Herald asked in a Sunday piece.
The reason for the Herald’s questioning? It is an incontrovertible fact that Judge Roy Moore was set up to look like a Russian dupe during his Senate race against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) who eventually eked out a victory.
Before we take a look at the Herald’s speculation, here’s a refresher on what happened to Moore:
As reported, Silicon Valley billionaire and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman donated $750,000 to American Engagement Technologies, a firm run by a former Google employee named Mickey Dickerson.
That firm distributed $100,000 of that money to a cybersecurity firm called New Knowledge, run by Jonathon Morgan. Morgan used the cash to flood Moore’s Twitter account with apparent Russian bots in an effort to connect the campaign to Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election. He also created Facebook pages intended to cause strife between Republicans in Alabama and split the vote between Moore and a write-in candidate. The operation was called “Project Birmingham.”
Internal company memos acknowledged that the goal of the operation was to “influence the outcome of the AL senate race.”
Now, The Herald is rightly questioning whether former FBI Director James Comey, who initially opened the investigation into Trump, did so with political motivations.
The paper said:
It doesn’t take a sleuth to see the similarities between what happened in Alabama and the origins of the ongoing special counsel investigation. For starters the Trump-hating FBI — led by James Comey — didn’t even bother to obtain the DNC server that Americans were told was hacked by the Russians. What proof do U.S. intelligence agencies have that John Podesta’s emails weren’t hacked by another foreign government and/or individuals who gave them to Wikileaks?
None — if you never bothered to analyze the server.
Voters would be naive to believe anything Comey’s FBI’s tells us when it used a “salacious and unverified” dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to spy on political opponents. A discredited dossier fabricated by Russian informants and an ex-British spy who was fired by the FBI for lying.
Not exactly confidence building.
Furthermore, it is key to remember that the investigation into “Russian meddling” was opened by Comey’s FBI in July of 2016, right during the heart of the election campaign, and was predicated on the idea that a Russian hacker compromised Hillary Clinton’s private email server in an effort to bolster the Trump campaign by exposing her “gross recklessness,” as Comey would later say. This served a dual purpose: cast doubt on then-candidate Trump and, if he won, serve as a giant sideshow after his election. It has certainly done that.
The modus operandi in the 2016 ‘Russian meddling” scheme and the operation against Judge Moore are almost identical.
Finally, after two full years of investigating, the Mueller investigation has turned up zero evidence of “collusion” between Trump and the Russians.
Is “Russian collusion” just another dirty trick in the Democratic Party playbook?

General Michael Flynn and Friends Show Their Support for QAnon Movement on Independence Day
Now that he has been exonerated, Flynn is getting hardcore.
General Michael Flynn is a free man, and he thanks the patriots in the controversial QAnon movement for standing by him throughout his tribulations.
He posted a video of his inner circle giving an oath of patriotism on Independence Day that referenced the popular QAnon slogan “where we go one we go all”:
Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸
God Bless America 🇺🇸
— General Flynn (@GenFlynn) July 5, 2020
The liberals are really angry that Flynn is lending credence to the QAnon movement, which they claim trafficks in dangerous conspiracy theories. They are particularly anguished that the QAnon movement keeps growing in strength as various suspicious crises hit the American people right before November’s elections.
“Flynn’s message, though alarming, falls into a larger trend: QAnon online activity has been on the rise since the start of the pandemic. As my colleagues Ali Breland and Sinduja Rangarajan reported last month, Google Trends shows that QAnon search terms like “WWG1WGA” (where we go one, we go all) spiked in March as US businesses started to close. Wikipedia’s QAnon page saw a surge in pageviews in March and April,” writer Jackie Flynn Mogensen wrote for left-wing rag Mother Jones.
Big League Politics has reported on the exoneration of Gen. Flynn, whose railroading by the deep state was ultimately unsuccessful:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced that they will be dropping the case against General Michael Flynn, which has been marred with corruption and improprieties from its inception.
The Flynn case was a feather in the cap of the special investigation conducted by FBI spook Robert Mueller into Russian collusion. The deep state had hoped to make an example of Flynn, secure a guilty plea from him, and then use it to justify their continued fishing expedition to damage President Donald Trump.
However, things did not turn out the way the entrenched bureaucrats planned. The DOJ announced on Thursday that it is dropping the case “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information.”
They came to the conclusion that Flynn’s interview with the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview taking place on January 24, 2017 was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.”
Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney tasked with reviewing Flynn’s case, made the recommendation to Attorney General Bill Barr that the case be dismissed. Barr followed through with Jensen’s recommendation in a prompt fashion.
“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case,” Jensen said in a statement. “I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”
Last week, President Trump declared that Flynn was “exonerated” due to the release of court documents showing how the FBI acted improperly throughout the case.
Flynn’s exoneration and his stance in favor of QAnon will certainly put some wind beneath the sails of those who have urged to trust the plan.
