Rohrabacher: Indictment Means ‘Collusion’ Theory Will Collapse

Feb 16, 2018

WASHINGTON – Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats, today released the following statement on the indictment of Russian nationals for allegedly meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election:

What stands out in this indictment of Russian nationals – which is serious enough and must be addressed – is that the Special Counsel stressed his investigators found no evidence the meddling influenced the outcome of the 2016 election. Indeed, the indictment indicates the Russians put out propaganda mischievously supporting both the Trump and the Clinton campaigns.

The indictment also stresses that “unwitting” Americans in and out of the Trump campaign were approached. One cannot, it seems to me, act as an unwitting colluder – a contradiction in terms. That suggests that, after all these months of the Mueller probe, the “collusion” theory will likely collapse, and soon. At last, Americans will be able to clear the air of all the conspiracy theory smoke the Democrats have been pumping into the media in order to discredit President Trump’s election.
