Lindsey Graham should look into Robert Mueller’s omission of a key detail from the Trump Tower meeting

 Lindsey Graham should look into Robert Mueller’s omission of a key detail from the Trump Tower meeting

Hey, Sen. Lindsey Graham, while you’re looking for criminal activity as it relates to the FBI’s dubious probe of the Trump 2016 campaign, check into why Robert Mueller’s final report never mentioned some very critical evidence that further casts doubt on the legitimacy of the FBI’s investigation.

Mark Hemingway at RealClearInvestigations reported Thursday that in his expansive, two-year probe, Mueller, the former special prosecutor, had interviewed an English-Russian translator who was present for the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting at the center of the FBI’s probe of the campaign.

At that private meeting, the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., reportedly believed he was there to receive damaging information against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton from Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Trump Jr., along with everyone else at the meeting, has since testified that nothing came of it and that the only subject broached was a U.S. law that financially punishes Russian human rights abusers.

And now we’re finding out that the independent translator, who has done work for both the U.S. and Russian governments, corroborated those testimonies when he was questioned by authorities.

“There was no discussion of the 2016 United States presidential election or Collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign,” Anatoli Samochornov, the translator, told the FBI, according to Hemingway’s report. “There was no smoking gun according to Samochornov. There was not a discussion about ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton. Samochornov did not think Hillary Clinton was mentioned by name.”

Mueller’s report does not once mention Samochornov’s own corroboration of Trump Jr.’s testimony, or that of anyone else who attended the meeting, even though Samochornov’s name is mentioned several times throughout the report.

Don’t tell me the omission isn’t yet more evidence (as if we needed any more) that the FBI and Mueller’s office weren’t out to portray Trump in the worst possible light.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, is right now deposing witnesses in the FBI’s questionable spying on Trump’s 2016 campaign. That’s a fantastic start. But now he needs to figure out this part of the conspiracy, too.
