Mueller's team to question former RNC officials on Russia
Members of Robert Mueller's team have begun reaching out to former Republican National Committee staff who were familiar with the digital operations of the Trump campaign, according to a source with knowledge of the outreach. The only outreach I can confirm happened recently.
Context: Congressional investigators have had lots of questions for campaign digital alums, including senior official Brad Parscale. They've also interviewed Alexander Nix, president of Cambridge Analytica (a firm that worked on data issues for the campaign).
- Yahoo News' Michael Isikoff first reported that Mueller's prosecutors are interested in "the party digital operation that worked with the Trump campaign to target voters in key swing states."
- Isikoff adds: "They are seeking to determine if the joint [RNC-Trump campaign] effort was related to the activities of Russian trolls and bots aimed at influencing the American electorate..."
- Isikoff says some of these interviews have already happened.
The collusion theory-of-the-case that's held most widely in Washington is that if any collusion happened, it would have been through Trump's data operation. There's no public evidence the data team did anything wrong.
I heard that one of Jared's friends from college had Kasperky anti-virus loaded on his computer. See what I'm sayin? His ass is grass and Mueller is a lawnmower. I sure hope he is able to negotiate a plea deal.
Meanwhile, the Ruskies allegedly hacked the DNC and the FBI requested access to their computers to look for fingerprints. The DNC just said FUCK YOU ARSEWIPES, GO TALK TO CROWDSTRIKE WHICH WE CONTROL AND SEE WHAT THEY WANT TO GIVE YOU. Did the FBI get a warrant to search the computers and get access? NO. They just said "crowdstrike is a good firm so we just looked at their findings and conclusions.
Compare this with the witch hunt they are doing at the RNC.
The moral of the story - of course- is that if you are ever being investigated by the FBI it is good to be getting one of those "HQ SPECIALS" that Hillary got. Them HQ SPECIALS be good. You get a good nights sleep when you get one of those.
