Perhaps in a move signaling his desperation, Mueller will be removing a vast majority of the indictments against Gates in exchange for his cooperation.
Gates pleaded guilty Friday to making false statements and a federal conspiracy for not reporting all of his financials from years ago.
Mueller was appointed when Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in early 2017 because of a conflict of interest with a Russian ambassador he met one time at a crowded event.
The former FBI director was tasked with determining whether Trump’s presidential campaign official colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election. After nearly a year of investigating, Meuller hasn’t found a drop of evidence supporting that liberal claim.
But he has indicted lesser known associates who briefly served on the Trump campaign, including Gates and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Both men have been indicted on charges that took place many years ago and well before they ever joined Trump’s campaign.
As such, many are questioning why Mueller is indicting officials for a fraud that allegedly occurred several years ago when he was appointed to look into election meddling.
It could also mean that Mueller is aware he has nothing, and in an attempt to save face, he is trying to indict many tiny fish to make it look like a big one.
The Democrats have been exposed for leading this witch hunt, and now Mueller is trying to rack up a slew of minuscule charges to make it look like his investigation wasn’t a complete sham.
