Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report.

Introduction to Volume II. pg. 1 PDF pg. 213.

Mueller Report Volume 2.
Mueller Report Volume 2.

As the News Blender reported on Wednesday Special Counsel Robert Mueller offered his first public statement since he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.

In the below clip Mueller explains that “charging the President with a crime therefore not an option we could consider.”

Mueller Report regarding Russian interference with the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Introduction to Volume 1. pg 1 PDF pg. 9.

First, a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer-intrusion operations against entities, employees, and volunteers working on the Clinton Campaign and then released stolen documents.

Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.

In Mueller’s own words regarding Russia’s interference from Wednesday.

Less than an hour after President Trump tweeted “I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected,” when asked by a reporter about his statement via Twitter, he said, “No, Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? I got me elected. Russia didn’t help me at all. Russia, if anything, I think helped the other side,” he added, “What you ought ask yourself is this, you think the media helped Hillary Clinton get elected. She didn’t make it, but you take a look at collusion between Hillary Clinton and the media.” [he said all that in the first 26 seconds of the clip].

In early January of 2017 the Intelligence Community issued a report regarding the Russian interference with the U.S. Presidential Election of 2016.

The IC assessment was “Putin, his advisers, and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump over Secretary Clinton.”

Robert Mueller came to the Oval Office (along with other potential candidates) seeking to be named the Director of the FBI.

From the Mueller Report Volume 2 pg. 80-81 PDF pg. 292-293.

Mueller Report Volume 2.

According to Mueller’s Report, Steve Bannon former President Trump White House adviser, told investigators regarding the FBI Director job, that as Bannon recalled “although the White House thought about beseeching Mueller to become Director again,” Mueller, “did not come in looking for the job.”

CNN reports that longtime Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran has died. He was 81 years old.

In April of 2018 Cochran resigned his senate seat due to his poor health.

The cause of death was not provided by Chris Gallegos a former spokesman who worked for Cochran, who made the announcement.
