Schiff Hints Mueller's Next Indictment To Implicate Trump Team

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian nationals earlier this month can only mean one thing according to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA): there's more to come.

Speaking with MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Schiff - the ranking minority leader on the House Intelligence Committee, suggested that because Mueller was so extraordinarily detailed in his indictment of the 13 Russians, the Special Counsel's office must be saving all the evidence of collusion pertaining to the DNC hack for the next indictment. 

Schiff points to the fact that there was "ample evidence" of Russia hacking the DNC, which - because Mueller didn't include any of it in the "troll farm" indictment, obviously means things are just heating up. "And the key question there is: Is that going to involve Russian figures alone or are there going to be U.S. persons implicated as well?" posits Schiff. 

Earlier this month, Schiff told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it." Schiff also said there is evidence — heard by the committee behind closed doors —that he can't talk about publicly because it remains classified.

One thing I found striking about the indictment of these 13 Russians, aside from the fact of the extraordinary detail, and that is what is not included in the indictment. And that is the whole Russian hacking of these documents, the dumping of this information was not a part of that indictment. Now there is ample evidence for Bob Mueller to have included it. I can only conclude from the fact it was left out that Bob Mueller wants that to be part of a separate indictment. And the key question there is: Is that going to involve Russian figures alone or are there going to be U.S. persons implicated as well? -Adam Schiff

Of course, the evidence of all that Russian hacking was compiled by discredited cybersecurity firm, Crowdstrike, which was the only group allowed to analyze the hacked servers - while the FBI was told to buzz off. Perhaps Mueller's team doesn't feel confident using the independent report. One would think, however, that perhaps just one of the "17 intelligence agencies" which Hillary Clinton claims verified the hack could provide Mueller's team with a little assist - or not, considering that it turns out only three agencies were involved in that assessment. 

Also, you can't transfer files at 23 MB/s over the internet - at least not in the United States. That's more of an "insider with a memory stick" kinda thing.

Perhaps Mueller doesn't want to open that can of worms?

Shiff also failed to mention Mueller's takedown of Paul Manafort and his right hand man Rick Gates on money laundering and fraud charges unrelated to the Trump campaign. Gates flipped on Manafort last week, changing his plea from not guilty to guilty on two charges; lying to Mueller's team, and "impeding, impairing, obstructing and defeating" the DOJ and Treasury. 

Thus, it seems that Mueller having gone from indicting Trump's campaign manager, to indicting 13 Russian internet trolls "with a shaky grasp of English and a rudimentary understanding of U.S. politics shitposting on Facebook," doesn't bode well for Schiff's prediction.

I'm still betting that John Kerry turns on the rest of the evildoers as the State Dept. oversight and direction of the criminal conspiracy to attack the USA via the police state will come straight to his old office.

The White House, AG, DOJ parts will fall into place promptly.

Obama, Biden and Kerry.  Rats in a trap.  Set by Her Fury, in her agonized clawing for power.

They keep talking about Russian collusion while we have on tape Victoria Nuland bragging about spending 5 billion dollars  (5 milliard for our European friends) to overthrow the legit Ukrainian government. 

Additionally we have George Soros, a US citizen, admitting in a tv interview of spending millions to interfere in the political process of Ukraine, Poland and Hungary. These are the countries I remember him naming. There are certainly more on that list.

 

Then we have Dick Moris and Manafort running around from country to country and being openly involved in those countries elections. Moris stated that him and Manafort faced off in 4 different countries' elections.  2 of these are Ukraine and Hungary. 

That is not inteference?????

I think what is sad about this whole thing is many Americans think its normal for their teachers to pack heat.  In the event a child attacks they can blow said individual away.   Let it sink in how your cultural is spiraling out of control with the disintegration of the nuclear family, income inequality, run away debt, partisan politics on steroids and a breakdown of ethics and morality in general.  The later being caused mainly by a Christian falling away.    Down vote away.

 

PS.  Not to mention the maiming and killing of millions of innocent people in "shit hole" countries in the name of fighting the false war on terrorism.  This action precipitated by a shadow government that brought us 9/11 and who knows what else.

9/11, Bush, the Patriot Act, 3 fake wars, the militarization of the police nationwide, the fake war on drugs, and 8 years of tyranny and sedition under America's first and last Black magic negro. I blame all Americans for putting up with fucking horseshit. If the Founding Fathers were alive today, they would arm up, march to Congress and wipe most of it out and start over. Then they would make their way to the Deep State shithole three letter agencies and do the same thing. Then they would give Americans their country back and tell them not to screw it up so badly again. Americans are like a girlfriend or wife who keeps getting beaten over and over by Congress and the Deep State and keeps coming back for more every single time expecting things to be different or change.

Can't you see the fear in his eyes that he's going to be getting the boot at the next election, if not before?

He's panicking and there's something incredibly off about him.

I think he's a closet queer and I  think he may have a predilection for the little boys.  I think he also has been bribed and is now being blackmailed.  I'm guessing more than just a few people know his story.

He knows if he doesn't get Trump - he might just be in the next California Pedo Paddy Wagon on his way the Federal F'em in the Ass Prison.

Little Adam Schittface is probably being fed privileged and classified information from one of his fellow tribesmen on the Mueller staff.  Meanwhile, despite all of the evidence implicating wrongdoing by Comey, Lynch, Rice, Rhoades, Obumbo, Rosenstein, both Clintons, Clapper, Brennan, Power, the FBI lovebirds, Simpson, Schittface, Ohr, McCabe, Steele, and Mueller himself (as Clinton's bagman in the Uranium One deal, among other things), AG Jeff "Sleepy" Sessions slumbers on peacefully.  Total loser.

Not an all-inclusive list by any means!  There are many mid-level apparatchiks who have yet to be revealed.  In the future I expect to see some members of the judicial branch included on this list.  It could start with Judge Contreras who was removed from sentencing LTG Flynn because of a blatant conflict of interest, although the (((MSM))) claimed that he "recused" himself.

I think you're correct, the whole gang is involved, plus Brenna at the CIA, Clapper et al. Probably, they and those allies to the Clintons that are still working at the CIA, state dept., FBI, "justice" dept., NSA, war dept., FISA courts, the MSM etc. are busy planning their next moves. Also, the people that are now talking heads at CNN and NBC that were under Obama are doing their bit, as they were involved when in government.

Come on everyone. Saying Trump is a Rothschild puppet gets a score of 10 positive and 23 negative? All US presidents since Wilson have been Rothschild puppets. The on-going US Russia bashing is intended mainly to vilify Russia and to defect from the on-going US/NATO/Zio  interference in Syria and to hide the present mainly US led interference in the upcoming Russian elections to oust Putin.
