    After a long and exhaustive investigation, Robert Mueller issued a report that found no conspiracy between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia. NONE WHATSOEVER. However, the report offers much detail that it claims supports the conclusion that not only did the Kremlin interfere in our elections in 2016, but it did so specifically to elect Donald Trump.

    Indeed, from the very day Trump stunned the world by winning the Presidency, his adversaries have assumed that Russia’s goal was to secure his victory. Why, their “meddling” on his behalf was the main reason Hillary lost! Just ask her and she’ll tell you.

    Aaron Mate begs to differ. His razor-sharp analysis of the Mueller report that appeared July 5 in RealClearInvestigations chips away at that conclusion.

    Mueller’s report claims that Russia’s interference took place essentially in two ways:

    1) Russian military intelligence officers hacked and leaked embarrassing Democratic Party documents.

    2) A government-linked troll farm created a sophisticated and far-reaching social media campaign to damage Hillary and promote Trump.

    After examining the report, Mate finds that these conclusions are not supported by the evidence cited in the report or publicly available elsewhere. He also cites shortcomings in the investigation and conflicts of interest among the key players (especially John Brennan) that undercut Mueller’s findings. That doesn’t prove his conclusions are wrong --- just that there is not sufficient evidence to support them. Yet Mueller came to those conclusions anyway.

    Let’s look at Mueller’s assertion that Russia’s main intelligence agency, the GRU, hacked into Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails and then used stolen Democratic National Committee credentials to hack into the DNC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) servers in April of 2016. Mueller goes on to say that the GRU created two online personalities, “DC Leaks” and “Guccifer 2.0,” to begin releasing the stolen material. The report describes in detail just how this would have been accomplished, with Guccifer 2.0 supposedly transferring the DNC emails to WikiLeaks, which as we know released them just ahead of the Democratic National Convention.
