Well, this is embarrassing. Special counsel Robert Mueller, the supposed savior of the country for going after Trump with all kinds of Democratic legal eagles, indicted the people involved with and who were supposedly financing a Russian troll farm that was publishing material that supposedly influenced the 2016 presidential election. There’s just one problem with the facts of the case.
One of the enterprises didn’t exist during the time period Mueller and his team says they did financing.
U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey asked Eric Dubelier, one of two lawyers representing the accused Russian company, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, if he was representing a third company listed in Mueller’s indictment.
“What about Concord Catering?” Harvey asked Dubelier. “The government makes an allegation that there’s some association. I don’t mean for you to – do you represent them, or not, today? And are we arraigning them as well?”
“We’re not,” Dubelier responded. “And the reason for that, Your Honor, is I think we’re dealing with a situation of the government having indicted the proverbial ham sandwich.”
“That company didn’t exist as a legal entity during the time period alleged by the government,” Dubelier continued. “If at some later time they show me that it did exist, we would probably represent them. But for purposes of today, no, we do not.”
So, the investigation into “collusion” which is not a crime, leads to the indictment of entities that did not exist at the time of the alleged “collusion” and the company in question is in the food business?
They indicted a ham sandwich indeed.
If the stakes weren’t so high, the whole thing could be in the script of a Mel Brooks movie, or in MAD Magazine. This is getting ridiculous, and, really, the whole witch hunt appears to be one gigantic waste of taxpayer dollars.
