In regard to the French election, I will point out that it was widely reported that someone made an attempt to inject bogus information into the dialog, but before these “someones” could get traction, French counterintelligence shut the operation down. Who those “someones” were is not known to this writer, nor would this writer expect to know, not being a member of French CI. Nevertheless, it is a bit disingenuous to claim that no such attack occurred.
On the American scene, we know that Michael Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador on several occasions. Since the FBI routinely surveils the Russian ambassador, it is logical to assume that the FBI knows what was discussed in those conversations. Now, I have to ask, what subject would the Russian ambassador bring up with Flynn? We know that Putin very much wants all sanctions to go away. So, is it possible that sanctions may have been the subject? Not being a member of the FBI, nor on Robert Mueller’s team, I cannot say yes or no. Certainly, Mueller will not tell us what he knows until the probe is completed. However, it is disingenuous to claim that collusion never happened simply because no conclusive evidence has been forthcoming.
In the interest of avoiding possible egg on your face in the future, Caitlin, you would be well advised to temper your remarks until such time that Mueller’s final report is available.
