Mueller’s blind eye is troublesome in Russia probe, ignores pro-Clinton Russia ads

Feb. 16, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the claim made in today’s indictments handed out by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that “Defendants’ operations included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump… and disparaging Hillary Clinton”:

“It is troubling that the Special Counsel ascribes a partisan agenda in his most recent indictments of the alleged Russians involved in buying Facebook ads using false names and bank accounts. The indictment states ‘Defendants’ operations included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump… and disparaging Hillary Clinton’ yet this statement appears to be untrue in light of anti-Trump ads that were also purchased by the groups named in the indictment. It is entirely possible that Russian actors hoped to create disharmony by pushing ads that incited both sides against one another, but Mueller’s turning a blind eye to this likelihood demonstrates his team’s inability to see beyond the 2016 campaign narrative about Russia involvement in the election.

“As Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein clarified in today’s press conference, ‘There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity,” meaning there was no tie to the Trump campaign or any other campaign for these activities. Mueller should also correct the record in his indictment. If the Russians were doing pro-Clinton ads, too, then it is impossible to deduce a partisan motive.”
