WATCH: Robert Mueller speaks about his report
I suppose I just refuse to let go of the notion that we’re better than this. Or at least… that we should, as Americans, expect better than this.
It seems not a day goes by that I don’t hear an update that truly makes my stomach turn at the state of our nation.
This is today’s gut-churning update:
Key figure that Mueller linked to Russia intel was actually a State Department source https://t.co/eEmun5ldwp

Ugh. I’m just so exhausted, at this point. This is so exhausting. What is going ON?!
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.
Yup… and they said NOTHING. “Interesting” isn’t it?
The revelation that Kilimnik was a valued State Dept informant, & that Mueller excluded that from his report, is one of the most embarrassing episodes yet for the Russiagate conspiracy theory narrative (and that’s saying a lot). https://t.co/hrSpq6Ry4l

#Mueller lied about the role of the only person they ever suggested was a Russian spy: "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." https://t.co/r6ag3luOuF

I wonder how the media will cover this SHOCKING DEVELOPMENT.
I wonder if we'll see an in depth analysis of this on @MaddowBlog
Seems like something @maddow would be interested in.
Oh, wait…. no. It would hurt her 2 year narrative, so we'll hear nothing about it.https://t.co/ifVZyNDCKr

It’s all sickening.
