Robert Mueller’s closure of report, which raised a major question on President Donald Trump’s place above law, is looked again from a very different perspective. While Mueller reportedly ended his investigation last month, his report also included potential crimes that are now looked into by the other federal prosecutors.
Living under the banner of obstruction of justice, the US president openly boasted about no collusion and exoneration after the Mueller investigation was concluded. The case, however, has aroused another set of possibilities after the New York Times released a new report, Sunday.
As per redacted version, Mueller report presented 14 separate investigations that his office handed over to other federal prosecutors. However, the problem is that out of the 14 cases, 12 have been redacted by the Attorney General William Barr. Nonetheless, as per the NYT account, two of them have likely been revealed now.
These investigations revolve around Trump campaign contacts related to the de-facto ruler of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed (MbZ), and also the possible Trump campaign collusion not only involving Russia, but the other Middle Eastern nations as well.
Firstly, the journal reveals the name of a Lebanese-American “businessman” George Nader, who maintains close ties with MbZ, and also served as an envoy for him at a Trump Tower meeting on August 3, 2016. The same meeting also included Donald Trump Jr. and Elliot Briody.
Nader at that meeting reportedly told Trump Jr. that the UAE and Saudi were ready to covertly help Trump Jr’s father in winning the presidential election.
Secondly, the NYT revealed the name of Joel Zamel, an Israeli social media specialist whose firm Psy-Group allegedly offered to run a secret online campaign, so as to bend the election in favor of Trump. As per the reports, Zamel also made the offer at Trump Tower meeting. Moreover, as per the Robert Mueller investigation, it is already known that Russia also developed a strategy to influence the election, and divert it towards the US President.
Both possibilities, thus, promise something even more evident against Trump, ironically with an issue that the sitting President cannot be indicted. Nonetheless, it still alleges how Robert Mueller left behind so many trails, which only validate that Trump’s delegates maintained close ties with numerous parties in run-up to the 2016 presidential elections.
