Indictments show Mueller is a joke

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller's decision today to indict 13 Russians for -- as NBC put it -- "election meddling" has to be a joke.

As Peggy Lee sang, "Is That All There Is?"

The Mueller investigation was a partisan fishing expedition that exposed the true corruption in government. Mueller hired from the FBI people who tried to meddle in the last election by stopping Trump.

In this investigation, President Trump gave the swamp critters all the rope they wanted, and watched them hang themselves.

The indictments are a joke. I question their legality.

But first, the reaction from the man who appointed Mueller as special counsel.

"Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, said at a press conference in Washington: 'There is no allegation in this indictment that any American had any knowledge.' Rosenstein added that the charges did not mean the Russian activity had an effect on the outcome of the election," the Guardian wrote.


The Mueller Meddling Theory is that 13 Russians spent a few thousand dollars on Facebook ads and trolled on Twitter, and defeated a billion-dollar political campaign.

If true, we should thank Vladimir Putin for preventing the presidency from falling upon a woman who was so incompetent that she could not defeat a rookie candidate even though she spent twice as much money as he did.

If such a woman were president, North Korea would have bombed Hawaii, the Islamic State would have joined the United Nations, and the economy would have tanked.

But of course the indictments show the whole premise of this investigation is one big fat lie. Where is the Russian Dossier, which was why Mueller was appointed?

Where are the urinating hookers named in that dossier?

Chef Boy-R-Mueller just served up a $50 Million Nothing Burger to the American people.

Mike Bloomberg's news service reported as "news" the Democratic Party narrative, under the headline, "Mueller Still Investigating Possible Collusion, Source Says."


I read that headline and thought I heard Steve Perry singing "Don't Stop Believin'" at a San Francisco Giants game. The video.

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his prosecutors haven’t concluded their investigation into whether President Donald Trump or any of his associates helped Russia interfere in the 2016 election, according to a person with knowledge of the probe," Bloomberg News said.

"Friday’s indictment of a St. Petersburg-based troll farm and 13 Russian nationals should be seen as a limited slice of a comprehensive investigation, the person said. Mueller’s work is expected to continue for months and also includes examining potential obstruction of justice by Trump, said the person, who requested anonymity to discuss an investigation that is largely confidential."

Unless the St. Petersburg mentioned is the one in Florida, I do not see how Mueller has jurisdiction.

Is he trying to meddle in Russian politics?

I can hear the interpreter for Putin telling Mueller, "You have no power here. Begone before somebody drops a house on you."

Meanwhile, the Daily Beast reported, "President Trump’s lawyer, John Dowd, told The Daily Beast on Friday that he and his client were pleased with the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had brought indictments against 13 Russian nationals accused with interfering in the 2016 election."

The money quote from Dowd was "I think the special counsel found the culprits. I think he did a good job. I think he did a hell of a job."

Heckuva job, Muelly.


From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies 2017.
"Fake News Follies of 2017" is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at for details. I am including a "director's cut." I'll email you back the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the "Fake News Follies of 2017."

Ben Garrison did the cover and I am so happy with it. I told him what the book was about, sent him a copy of the manuscript, and he came up with a perfect cover. I am so pleased.


  1. The only thing this reminds me of is when Obama put that videographer in prison to cover up for Benghazi. Did these guys do anything we haven't ignored when done by other people?

    Mueller is covering up for crimes done by fellow swamp creatures.

  2. He had to throw somebody to the Lefties.

    This was the best he had.

  3. There are two good take a ways from these indictments, both of which are positive.
    1. These guys started well before Trump actually entered the race. They believed what everyone was saying, that is Trump was unelectable. Therefore by promoting Trump was intended to guarantee Hillary's election.
    2. By charging foreign nationals with interfering with our elections should meet the next indictment should be soros.

  4. What a JOKE!!!!! Catering ordering with fake names? Using quotes like Hillary for prison, which Alex Jones came up with not Russia or Russians! Then come to find out they live in Russia and Mueller can't touch them or prosecute them. And bottom line they have nothing to do with Trump. The only collusion is the DNC, Clinton and Obama, paying for a fake dossier that was used to get an ilegal FISA warrant to spy on Trump's campaign. Mueller has nothing and this proves it, and Trump, under law, can fire anyone for any reason he wants! So there was no collusion, no obstruction of Justice, if anything, Comey obstructed justice for not arresting Clinton for having top secret government documents on a private, non government server! More egg on the face of Mueller and the scumbag Democrat communist party!

  5. Bloomberg and the leftists are playing "Don't Stop Believin" in the bottom of the 9th, with 2 outs and the home team is down 20-0.

    1. And out of the bullpen trots...Rivera. Turn out the lights, the party's over.

  6. "Chef Boy-R-Mueller just served up a $50 Million Nothing Burger to the American people." I'd call it "Spaghetti-Zeroes".

  7. 'Muler'has yet to deliver the load of holy water Comey promised would give him easy access to the fold of heaven. As a great man once said, "If you can't fuck your friends, who can you fuck”?

  8. I guess since the standard is "lack of intent" then "unwittingly" means there is no there-there.

    Done in less than a year; man, that Trumpian efficiency has even gotten to the special counsels.

  9. I've been asking myself about all the accusations against Steele (a British citizen) and now all these meddlesome Russians. What is Mueller going to do to get foreigners, who totally destroyed our election process, over here in front of a judge to get a guilty conviction? What if England and Russia says FU? Are we going to go to war or implement harsh sanctions or nuke England and / or Russia for the skins of a few of their citizens?

    Another trap is sprung and the targets still don't realize what's happened. Mueller's writ was to investigate Trump/Russia collusion...or anything else he turned up. These indictments set the precedent for wandering off the strict Russia/Trump reservation. If the Dems don't scream bloody murder about this they will have absolutely no justification for complaint if he just happens to lock up a few (all?) of them.

  12. --Mueller was also criticized for his time as head of the FBI. He led the investigation into the deadly anthrax attacks in the years after 9/11 for nearly seven years, ultimately leading in the prosecution of the wrong suspect, who later successfully sued the government for $5.8 million.

    After agents successfully traced back the anthrax to an Army microbiologist who committed suicide once he was informed of the impending charges, Mueller “was reluctant to publicly address the missteps” in the case.--

  13. "No crimes!", the little Trumpsters claimed, but yet today we get indictments for.....crimes. Once the crimes are established, conspirators with these criminals will be prosecuted as well. As the Lil' Trumpsters try their best to put on a good face, not much of a peep with Rick Gates signing on to Mueller's choir. This is going to be fun.

    1. The trolling is...WEAK. As is the troll.

    2. Mueller's indictment advances a dubious legal theory* that will likely never be tested in court as Mueller is unlikely to ever obtain jurisdiction over the Russian defendants.


  14. I don't know a single person who changed their vote due to Russian actions, such as purchased FaceBook ads.
    I haven't heard of any voting machines being hacked by Russians such that the results came out wrong ... OK, there was that recount in Michigan where there were multiple precincts with more votes for Hillary than the number of voters. They shut down that recount tout de suite.

    If anything, that Michigan anomaly is more worthy of investigation than this Russian thing.

  15. “Maybe our media ought to reflect that they are serving Russian interests very well with their rabid sensationalism of the “collusion” story.”

  16. Thank you for making me laugh out loud. Reading your tweets and articles brightens my days.

  17. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
