Israelgate? As Russia probe runs dry, Mueller may turn to Middle East to pursue Trump ‘collusion’


Claiming indictments will start dropping in early 2019, sources close to the matter say that Mueller’s team has been discussing the possibility of filing charges pertaining to election meddling by Israeli, Emirati, and Saudi nationals.

These well-connected figures not only offered US President Donald Trump assistance on his way to the White House – a report by the Daily Beast claims – they also tried to meddle in policies once he was there.

“If this is going to be unveiled, this would be like the surfacing of the submarine but on the other plank which we haven’t seen,” said Harry Litman, a former US attorney with knowledge of the probe.

Foreign influence-peddling is not exactly a new phenomenon in the US. The Foreign Agents Registration Act, originally intended to counter Nazi Germany’s propaganda, has for decades been something that only “official” foreign lobbyists had to take into account. Even among those there are some notable exceptions that happen to include a country mentioned by the Beast.

Mueller has already indicted some Trump officials for things related to lobbying for foreign powers. Michael Flynn’s guilty plea was for lying to the FBI about his work for the Turkish government. Paul Manafort’s entire case is about him being too greedy with money he got as a lobbyist for Ukraine.

The Beast, of course, sounds quite delighted that the “Russian investigation” is going “global,” but even they seem to be in doubt about how it would fit Mueller’s mandate, which has been to investigate alleged connections between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Their answer is that there were Middle Eastern influence peddlers, who got involved with the Russians as well as Trump. Or maybe the prosecutor would seek an extension of his mandate.

Ironically, for all the media buzz, the very fact of collusion remains elusive and unproven. So far Mueller has indicted some Russians for allegedly hacking Democrat emails and pretending to be Americans while posting political memes. If proven, that may amount to interference by Moscow. But those cases may not ever be tested in a full trial, considering Russia’s ban on extraditing its own citizens to foreign countries.

As the “collusion” in the Mueller probe has seemingly morphed into “interference,” it may so happen that “Russia” would morph into whichever country named in the future indictments. Maybe this will finally bring into US media spotlight that Flynn’s much-damned meeting with the Russian ambassador was in fact to petition for Israel’s interests and against the position of then-President Barack Obama.

  1. Nothing will happen if the Zionists are involved, remember nothing was done to the Zionists when they attacked the USS Liberty in 1967, and murdered 33 American sailors, and ever member of con-gress signed loyalty oaths to the Zionists.

  2. Oh but the blind cannot lead the blind …Just how many U.S. Presidential candidates have shown their ignorance and pressed their very own lips [ yucck ] against that hideous Wall in Israel ?? ….Too many !..It is not ignorance but a gesture of ass kissing and nothing more . Why are the Palestinians having their land stolen , water and themselves being beaten and killed daily ? Israel is no more a democracy than an overfilled septic tank . The Presbyterian Church , the United Church of Christ the Reformed Churches the Lutherians and Maryknoll have signed a letter may 14th entitled ” 70 years on : Seeking a hopeful future in a time of yearning . ” it calls for the end to the slaughter and justice for the Palestinians . A copy was sent to each Congressman . Most recently the Quakers in Britain banned any investment by the church in companies that exploit the ” military occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israeli Govt. ” Imagine that !

  3. It helped secure the grasp of the AIPAC stranglehold on America – (yes, those two-faced, dual allegiance, double-dealers who set the shady mood of the US political zeitgist for the past number of years) – that so many Ashkenazim rowed in behind Trump on his unlikely heist of the White House. Because at the end of the day it was a heist on a monumental scale that included fly-by-night oligarchs who rifled Russia and were keen to launder millions of dollars to bolster the Trump Presidential bandwagon and thereby be assured to turn a quick profit on their ill-gotten gains through the Trump backdoor into his tawdry world conducted in a fanfare of sleaze. The only ones to gain made sure little or nothing filtered into America beyond the Brooklyn-Queens wall of New York hardly visible from Manhattan where a former tribe – the Canarsee Indians of the Lenape once held sway before selling out for 60 Guilders in 1626. Four centuries later, Trump is busy selling the entire United States out for less.

  4. If Mueller does indict the mideast actors he will, in my book, be half way to exonerating himself for the perjury he committed when he signed the official 911 report. To gain the other 50 % he has to turn himself in after his complete confession.
