On Trail of Trump-Russian Collaboration

There’s approximately an 0.098 percent chance I’ll go trick or treating this Halloween. If I do though, I’m going as Elizabeth Warren.

But Lieawatha being outed by her own DNA wasn’t the only October news causing Democrats to groan.

Designated DNA Hitter

Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that his long-awaited report and liberal fantasy of Trump collusion with Russia won’t be released until after the Nov 6 mid-terms.

So much for roasting Trump over a SJW bonfire before the election.

There is a silver lining for those supporting the ailing Russian collusion narrative, though.

Anonymous sources close to Mueller’s investigation tells Dean Riff’s that Herr Mueller has opened a new line of investigation promising hopeful returns on Russian collaboration even as the dubious fool’s gold vein of Russian collusion peters out.

Could an innocuous cover band that specializes in playing hit songs by the band Chicago be the key for Mueller’s minions to finally prove the Trump campaign collaborated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election?

Proven Russian Collaboration

Here’s what we know:

Russian band Leonid & Friends appeared on the public scene three years ago at about the same time Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower in Manhattan announcing his candidacy for president of the United States.

Since that time the band has gained increasing notoriety for their uncanny ability to perform numerous Americana-like Chicago songs with unerring accuracy to the band’s early sound.  They have performed flawless versions of Chicago classics like “Make Me Smile,” “25 or 6 to 4,” and “Saturday in the Park.”

Reportedly Mueller’s stoog – er, investigators, have zeroed in on the fact Leonid & Friends have never performed Chicago’s 1975 song, “Harry Truman.”

Consider this: Both Donald Trump and Harry Truman have 11 letters in their name, and both have served as U.S. presidents. Like Trump, Truman also had many critics within his own party, and both talked in colorful language punctuated by occasional expletives.

Truman is the only U.S. president to have dropped an atomic bomb during war time. Trump has occasionally referenced dropping bombs on America’s enemies.

Is talk of Leonid & Friends touring the U.S. a coded sign that Trump is about to drop a hammer and sickle on his enemies? Iran? Central America? Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti or CNN flack Jim Acosta?

Only time will tell, but if you hear that Leonid & Friends is performing at a Trump venue or campaign event, remember – you heard it here first.

Peter, Peter, Prevaricator

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within… He ( a traitor) rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.” – Cicero

If Ben and Jerry’s were to name an ice cream for disgraced FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strozk it would probably be something like “Raspberries Resistance” or “Strozk’s Strawberry Surprise.”

Throughout his 10 hours of slithering, squirming and preening earlier this month, Strozk looked like a mash-up of Jack Nicholson in The Shining and Anthony Perkins in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.

Peter “True Patriot” Strozk

Anthony Perkins

Brimming with hubris and self-defiance, Strozk wrapped himself in the flag of patriotism and the FBI cloak of fidelity, bravery and integrity while deflecting a fusillade of Republican questions about his infamous texts and how he conducted the two investigations he headed.

Strozk’s smugness, superciliousness and snark were all on full display. And for those who missed it, it wasn’t pretty.

And adding salt to the wound of our festering outrage at the illicit activities of the sadly misnamed “intelligence” leaders was Strozk’s preposterous insistence that his damning texts about Trump exchanged with former FBI lawyer and paramour Lisa Page had no influence on how he carried out his investigative responsibilities as a senior member of the FBI.

If that isn’t far fetched enough, how about this? Strozk told Trey Gowdy he wasn’t removed from his position overseeing the Clinton email investigation and the Russian collusion investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller because of bias, but because of  “the perception of bias.”

Then came Strozk’s coup de grace to all those Republicans who dare questioned his integrity and loyalty. After a fiery exchange with Gowdy, Strozk squirmed onto his high horse of indignation and self-righteousness for all the committee Dems to see and applaud.

“Like many people, I had and expressed personal political opinions during an extraordinary presidential election,” Strzok chided. “My opinions were expressed out of deep patriotism,” he added fervently.

I suspect Strozk imagined the Battle Hymn of the Republic was playing in the background while he defended his honor and the FBI’s.

Naturally committee Democrats were moved to crocodile tears at Strozk’s passionate outburst. Tennessee Democrat Representative Stephen Cohen told Strozk he deserved a Purple Heart for the slings and arrows aimed at him by Republicans.

Those same Republicans and thousands of skeptical viewers undoubtedly believed Strozk’s performance was more worthy of an Oscar.

A third group of fed up Americans growing larger each day believe Strozk and others involved in this scheme to overthrow a duly elected president deserve nothing more than orange jumpsuits and a judicially ordered expiration date.

I’m with the latter group.

Magoo and Clouseau To Help Mueller

On Thursday the White House announced that two-time New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani was joining the president’s legal team, along with Marty and Jane Raskin of the Florida-based law firm Raskin & Raskin.

Today Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office followed suit with a surprise announcement of its own.

Mueller spokesman Peter Carr announced two late additions to Mueller’s legal team: J. Quincy Magoo and French legal legend Jacques Clouseau.

Magoo is known as a flighty but tenacious prosecutor who has enjoyed uncanny luck throughout his storied career.

He has proven experience in maneuvering around all kinds of obstacles and his seemingly random meanderings often provide unique perspectives that have helped him ferret out details others miss.

Clouseau is a legend in his native France. He has been in professional law enforcement since the late 1960’s and has a storied reputation for his unorthodox methods.

As an inspector for the French Sûreté, his greatest notoriety occurred when he single-handedly solved a string of high profile thefts involving some of that country’s most influential and wealthiest families.

When asked why Mueller was seeking the services of the famed French law enforcement legend, Carr replied that the two met by happenstance last month when Inspector Clouseau’s water skis got entangled with Mueller’s Russian collusion fishing expedition off the coast of Seychelles.

According to Carr, Magoo was hired a week later after wandering into Mueller’s office mumbling about President Trump’s tweets and Russian caviar. Mueller took that as an omen that Magoo was perfect for his team.

Mueller said through Carr that his team was elated to welcome the legendary pair to his team.

“We are thrilled to have Quincy and Jacques join us in this endeavor,” Mueller said. “We’re confident their unique experience will help us connect the dots in proving Trump’s Russian collusion once and for all.”

Snipe Fishing in Seychelles

I’d read the media reports about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest episode clambering down the Trump-Russian collusion rabbit hole – halfway across the world no less – but decided to check things out for myself.

Two days later I found Mueller and a small team of lawyers aboard a luxury yacht off the coast of Seychelles.  At least I assume they were lawyers.  Most were wearing loosened Brooks Brothers suit ties with their swim trunks and sunglasses.

Apparently his Special Counselness appreciated the time away as I found him jovial and receptive to my questions.

How’s the fishing?
“Worth the trip! We’ve had some promising nibbles of corruption and Russian cronyism since anchoring here.  It may look like we’re casting too wide a net here on the east coast of Africa looking for Trump’s Russian collusion, but it’s out there – we just know it!”

So you’re fishing for collusion?

“Oh yeah! That’s what taxpayers are paying us for. Don’t let the rumors we’ve gathered no proof the past year fool you.  The facts that the Russians tried to influence the last presidential campaign by bribing Trump and his campaign team is as plain as the fact Hillary would have won if it weren’t for some illegal leaking of classified information.”

Speaking of leaks, don’t you have that problem yourself?

“We’re leaking?! Omigosh, where’s the life preservers?!”

I was speaking about the leaks coming from your legal team. And isn’t it true that your hiring was based on your pal Jim Comey leaking classified information to a friend who in turn leaked to the New York Times?

“Look here.  We’ve got some excellent leads on Trump-Russian collusion that led us here to this remote island location far away from boring grand juries and Fox News.  Trust me; the president’s house of cards will be coming down as soon as we connect those dots our witnesses left us like bread crumbs on these pristine waters. Caviar?”

We know you are looking at Blackwater founder Erik Prince’s involvement with a United Arab Emirates contact.  Prince never held a formal role in the Trump campaign, transition team or the administration. What gives?

“We’re merely following the evidence where it leads, and specifically whether the UAE was trying to buy political influence by supporting the Trump campaign.  Vodka?”

You mean like Hillary Clinton was doing with donations to the Clinton Foundation?

“That’s not in our purview.  Our mandate is to prove collusion between Russia and Trump to unduly influence our election.  And we won’t quit our first class worldwide jet-setting, nosing in 20-year-old business deals and spending the taxpayers’ money until we do!  And that’s a promise you can take to the Clinton Foundation bank!”

So you’re trying to prove the president is guilty of what Hillary did, even though there’s plenty of evidence of Hillary’s complicity and absolutely none with Trump?

“Exactly!  Everyone knows Hillary’s guilty and the Clinton Foundation was a cash cow for her and Bill, so there’s no need for lawyers to prove any of that.  The money to be had in that case is proving their innocence and frankly, who wants that job?!”
