Ray gave a relaxed interview to host Andrew Mount of KSKQ, a Pacifica affiliate in Ashland, Oregon, the day after Robert Mueller’s testimony to the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. The interview covered the waterfront, including an update from Ray on three related Court cases that may eventually provide the script for a “Requiem for Russia-gate.”
The Court cases have already begun to show that the evidence behind Mueller’s main conclusion that “the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion” amounts pretty much to “because I say so.” Sadly, that has been good enough for the corporate media, but “ipse dixit” does not usually suffice for the Courts. The judges have proven a great deal less credulous than the media, and are saying, in effect, “PROVE IT.”
“Discovery” is discovering some pretty important things which whoever wrote the “Mueller report” seem to have missed as they set Mueller up — first as paragon of virtue, now as scapegoat. Not a nice way to take advantage of an old guy.
And, once those now at the top of the Justice Department — not only Attorney General William Barr but also Inspector General Michael Horowitz — look at the evidence, such as it is, it is a safe bet they will prove as skeptical and demanding as the judges. Worse still for Mueller and other anointed figures, the Establishment is no longer a monolith.
An additional worry for the “Mueller Team” is the possibility that some underling with insight into the Mueller charade — or perhaps even with a role in it — may retain some semblance of a conscience. This could mean they might be tempted by their better angels to spill the beans to a media outlet, assuming they can find one that would not immediately report them to “law enforcement.”
