Politics Talk. Now we know why Mueller wouldn't testify before Congress...something strange was going on with his report...

Via The Hill.
In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence.

But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.

Why Mueller’s team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller’s Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny.

The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller’s overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. “The FBI assesses” Kilimnik “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” Mueller’s team wrote on Page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.

What it doesn’t state is that Kilimnik was a “sensitive” intelligence source for State going back to at least 2013 while he was still working for Manafort, according to FBI and State Department memos I reviewed.

Kilimnik was not just any run-of-the-mill source, either.

He interacted with the chief political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, sometimes meeting several times a week to provide information on the Ukraine government. He relayed messages back to Ukraine’s leaders and delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words, the memos show.

The FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.
Story here. 

There is so much more to this story.  History will not be kind to those involved in this.

I think I was right (as were many others) in calling this a modern day coup attempt.  My guess?  The psych profile they did on Trump missed the mark.  Most people would have bailed on the job once they saw the railroading being done to them. 

As we all know Trump isn't an ordinary individual and this is one time where his character issues served him well.

Or was it simply the fact that he knew he did nothing wrong?

On a side note this explains why Pelosi isn't fast walking impeachment and even the subcommittees have slowed down.  The more they scratch the more this goes public.

AND NOTE ALSO that this is THE HILL reporting this.  Not a right wing paper.
