The release, on May 6th, of the marching orders former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave to Robert Mueller in the investigation of Donald Trump proves, beyond any reasonable doubt, that Russiagate was a concocted hoax by Obama intelligence officials meant to undermine and remove the sitting President of the United States, using the courts, the Department of Justice, dupes in Congress, and a witting national news media to do so.

The August 2, 2017, scope memo, mostly classified until yesterday, outlines what Mueller was allowed to investigate concerning Carter Page, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, and one other individual whose name and investigative mandate remain redacted.

At the time the scope memo was written, Rosenstein and the FBI knew that all of the claimed activities outlined for investigation had been disproven by the FBI itself. They either came from the British intelligence hoax known as the Christopher Steele dossier or they were the product of the DOJ/FBI’s illegal attempt to remove Michael Flynn as President Trump’s National Security Advisor by walking him into a perjury trap. As a shocked Senator Lindsay Graham remarked on Hannity on Wednesday night, “This is J. Edgar Hoover stuff . . . And I supported the Mueller investigation.”

The report on FBI misconduct in Russiagate, by DOJ Inspector General Horowitz, demonstrates that the FBI knew, as of January 2017, that the Steele dossier was a fabricated hoax, with Steele’s primary source admitting what he told Steele was barroom gossip. Other recently released information points to whole sections of Steele’s dossier being a fictional novel concocted by Steele’s U.S. business partner and Clinton campaign operative Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, and Obama CIA Director John Brennan.

The “crimes” Mueller was investigating concerning Paul Manafort included alleged “collusion” with Russia to influence the 2016 election (a central claim of the Steele dossier), alleged crimes concerning payments to Manafort for consulting activities with the Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovych (the bogus and fabricated “black ledger claim” developed by Ukrainian intelligence and DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa) and whether any crime could be found in Manafort receiving a loan from a bank where the CEO was seeking a position in the Trump Administration. Manafort was ultimately indicted and convicted on tax charges by Mueller. Mueller indicted him in two courts, subjecting him to two potential trials and arranged for him to be held in solitary confinement pretrial in order to break him and get testimony against Donald Trump.

The main allegation against George Papadopoulos was that he colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election, an allegation straight out of the Steele dossier. At this point, the FBI had thrown multiple informants at Papadopoulos to confirm this allegation. They knew and Rosenstein knew that Papadopoulos had denied any such “collusion” telling FBI informants attempting to set him up that any such “collusion” would be treason.

Rosenstein and Mueller added a second fabricated charge to investigate—that Papadopoulos was an “unregistered” agent of Israel. Papadopoulos has documented that Mueller and Israeli assets tried to set him up on this charge by throwing $10,000 in cash and a lucrative consulting contract at him, Mueller indicted Papadopoulos on a false statement charge concerning his interview by FBI goons about his contacts with the western intelligence asset and Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud. Papadopoulos’ statement was off by a few weeks as to when his Mifsud contacts occurred. Papadopoulos pled to the charge after being terrorized by Mueller and the FBI.

Rosenstein actually authorized Mueller to investigate whether Michael Flynn violated the Logan Act, a more than two hundred year statute which had resulted in exactly one indictment in its entire history, when he spoke to Russia’s Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during the transition. No sentient attorney actually believes that the Logan Act has any continuing validity and it is widely held to be unconstitutional.

The FBI itself had determined that Michael Flynn had not done anything illegal in January of 2017, following a full investigation by the Washington FBI Field Office and was closing the Flynn investigation when a frantic Peter Strzok intervened to keep it open. Knowing that the collusion claim, and the claim that Flynn lied in an interview set up to entrap him by Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, were a dead letter, and, in fact, involved massive DOJ and FBI misconduct, Rosenstein authorized Mueller to continue to investigate them anyway. In addition, Rosenstein added claims concerning whether or not Flynn acted as an unregistered foreign agent of Turkey.

Flynn pled to a false statement charge concerning his contacts with Kislyak after he was bankrupted by the legal fees charged to defend himself and Mueller threatened to put Flynn’s son in jail for years on the unregistered foreign agent charge. Flynn is now seeking to withdraw his guilty plea based on outrageous government misconduct. His business partner was acquitted of the foreign agent registration charge regarding Turkey after U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga tossed the case, after trial, on grounds of evidentiary insufficiency.

Finally, Rosenstein authorized Mueller to continue to investigate Carter Page for colluding with Russia, knowing that Page was a CIA asset who was reporting all of his Russian contacts to the agency and had been instrumental in securing convictions against a Russian espionage ring in New York City.

The initial scope memo concocted by Mueller and Rosenstein on May 17, 2017, following James Comey’s firing by Donald Trump, was blatantly illegal. It authorized a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump Campaign based on James Comey’s March 20, 2017 testimony to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” The Special Counsel statute does not allow for counterintelligence investigations, only for investigations of specified crimes.

The initial scope memo had come under predictable legal attack by constitutional and legal scholars and was going to be attacked by anyone prosecuted by Mueller. So, the previously classified August 2, 2017 Scope Memo is a frantic cover your ass memo by Rosenstein and Mueller seeking to fit what was an illegal hunting license – go out and find a crime by these targets, harass and terrorize the hell out of them and get admissions and convictions—into the framework of the Special Counsel statute. In reality, the lame legalize reveals an instruction to get scalps to feed the ongoing press operation aimed at undermining and delegitimizing Trump. If possible set up the President himself for obstruction and remove him, as James Comey was in the process of doing when President Trump fired him.
